The Everest and Annapurna regions of Nepal have been amongst the world's must see destination for intrepid trekkers for more than forty years.

Overview

The Everest and Annapurna regions of Nepal have been amongst the world's 'must see' destination for intrepid trekkers for more than forty years. Up until now, a trekking holiday in these spectacular mountain environments involved either camping or staying at basic tea houses. Now it is possible to trek in these famous valleys whilst taking advantage of comfortable lodges with all the modern conveniences of a hotel. The Yeti Mountain Home lodges that we use in the Khumbu and the Ker and Downey lodges on the south side of the Annapurnas each offer spacious rooms which are pleasantly decorated and which have running hot and cold water in their en-suite bathrooms. Best of all, each lodge has been carefully sited to present a magnificent panorama of the Himalaya or surrounding valley from the lodge itself. For those who would like to see both the Everest and Annapurna areas in a single holiday and would also like to do this in comfort, we can wholeheartedly recommend this holiday. The itinerary has been refined for 2017 and now includes 6 days of walking the Everest area, followed by 5 days of rather more leisurely walking in the foothills of the Annapurnas. Travelling to each of these areas by plane adds to the spectacle of this amazing holiday; the flight up to Lukla will live long in the memory and the flight along the chain of the Himalaya to Pokhara shows off the central part of the Nepal Himalaya to great effect. Our trek in the Everest region takes us up to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, where we have time to explore this thriving town and to visit the nearby villages of Khunde and Khumjung for world-famous views of Everest and Ama Dablam. We also now include a night at the quieter and very traditional Sherpa village of Thame, before returning to Lukla. In the Annapurnas we trek in the foothills north of Pokhara through picturesque villages and with a sublime backdrop of snowy peaks. Here, too, we have added a day of walking and a night at Ker and Downeys La Bee Lodge in Landruk. One final additional element of this refined holiday is the night we now spend in Pokhara at a luxurious resort hotel. Using first class hotel accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara and absolutely the best standard of lodge available in each of the areas where we trek, this really is a 'pampered' trekking holiday.
