Trekking in Nepal
Have you ever wanted to trek to Everest Base Camp, looking up beyond the notorious Khumbu IceFall to the highest mountain in the world and the slopes that know the secrets of so many momentous historical stories from mountaineering history?
Have you imagined yourself standing at Annapurna Base Camp in the middle of the incredible Annapurna Sanctuary, surrounded in a natural amphitheatre of 360 degrees of 6,000, 7,000 and 8,000 metre peaks?
Have you been there, done that and now are looking for a trek with a difference?
Whether you are new to trekking in the Himalaya, or a connoisseur of Himalayan treks, we have a trekking trip for you.
Nepal offers so much to the trekker – some of the most famous treks in the world including Everest Base Camp, accessible to most regular, fit hillwalkers. The Everest Base Camp trek includes spending time at the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, the monasteries at Thyangboche and Pangboche, and spectacular close-up views of the famous mountains of the Khumbu Valley – Lhotse, Nuptse, of course Mt Everest and the favourite of many – the shapely Ama Dablam.
Slightly more challenging treks include Everest Base Camp via the sacred lakes of Gokyo – a beautifully haunting area of turquoise lakes that are dedicated to Sherpas who have lived, worked and served out their lives in the majestic mountains of the Himalaya, with wide-ranging views across to all the peaks of the Khumbu Valley.
If you are looking for a remote, challenging trek we can offer the little-visited area of Naar Phu – snow leopard country tucked away in the Annapurna region. This area was only opened to visitors relatively recently and still requires a special trekking permit. The villages of Naar and Phu still have a rawness about their interaction with trekkers.
For families we can offer multi-activity holidays which include a trek, white-water rafting and elephant-backed safaris.
As well as the best trekking crews in the world with their cheery “bed tea” and attention to detail that puts most western notions of customer care to shame, Nepal also offers the fascinating city of Kathmandu, the peace and relaxation of Pokhara, exhilarating rafting trips, incredibly diverse bird life and Asian-style safaris.
Why book with trekMountains?
Having led expeditions in the Himalaya since 2004, we have a good understanding of the region and of the importance of planning itineraries that allow both ample time for acclimatisation and flexibility in the case of altered travel plans. Whilst we are prepared to be flexible if you want a bespoke itinerary, we will not compromise your safety or acclimatisation programme.
