The Annapurna massif in Nepal is a sensational and incredibly fascinating area to explore. And on this trip, which can range from 18 to 21 days, I would like to guide you through it on a hiking adventure you will never forget!

The trip will begin as soon as you land at the Kathmandu airport. We will pick you up and take you to your hotel, where you can enjoy some much needed rest. On the following day, you will get to explore the amazing city and all of its highlights. After Kathmandu, the journey through Annapurna will begin.

After a long and scenic drive to Beshisahar, we will start trekking. The long trek that will encompass so much of Annapurna will take you to a number of wonderful Nepalese villages. From Jagat and Dharapani to Chame, Tal, Pisang and more, you will get to immerse yourself in the amazing culture of the area. Richly Tibetan, you will get to spend many nights in different tea houses in the villages we will trek through. Moreover, you will get to meet and talk to the local people, and enjoy their delicious food and wonderful customs.

Throughout this trek, you will also get to enjoy some breathtaking views of the amazing Himalayas. From places like Minang, you will get to gaze at some of the largest peaks in the region, as the sun rises and sets.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition.

Full of long hikes, scenic drives and short, thrilling flights, this trek will create enough memories to last a lifetime. If you would like to experience it for yourself, just send me a request.

I can also lead you on a 10 day ascent of the amazing Stok Kangri in the Himalayas as well.
