Starting from Kathmandu: The Gateway to the Himalayas

Your adventure begins in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, rich in history and culture. This city is not only the starting point but also a colourful introduction to Nepal’s traditions and crafts. From here, a scenic drive or a swift domestic flight takes you to the charming city of Pokhara, the next step in your journey towards the mountains.

The Ultimate Reward: Annapurna Base Camp

Arriving at Annapurna Base Camp, at an elevation of 4,130 meters, is a moment of unparalleled accomplishment and wonder. Surrounded by the mighty peaks of Annapurna I and other significant Himalayan giants, the base camp offers breathtaking panoramic vistas. This is where you truly feel the magnificence of the mountains enveloping you, creating memories that resonate long after your return.

Cultural Immersion and Local Hospitality

Throughout the trek, experience the warm hospitality of Nepal’s mountain people. Staying in traditional teahouses, you’ll enjoy not only the comfort of Nepalese hospitality but also the delightful local cuisine that provides a taste of the region’s culinary culture. Engaging with the locals can enrich your understanding of the Nepalese way of life, adding depth to your trekking experience.

We just returned from our trip to Nepal. The wonderful memories with our guide, driver and Bhairam at Nepal Hiking will remain in our heart forever. The trek in Annapurna was a bit hard for us; but our guide Chhabi was really kind, patient and understood our feelings. Without Nepal Hiking and the wonderful guide, our trek would be incomplete. The trek was perfectly organised. We are extremely satisfied and happy to recommend the organizer and the guide anyone visiting Nepal.

This is the third trek we’ve done with Nepal Hiking (previously also called Nepal Trailblazer Trekking) and once again it was a great adventure. It is also the third time Chhabi has been our guide and again he was a great guide and companion.

The highlights for us this time were:
– the trek through the rhododendron forest to and from Ghorepani, which is still lovely (although the steps up from Ulleri are not for the feint hearted!)
– a very pleasant stay at Chueli
– seeing langur monkeys close up on the way to Himalaya
– the spectacular views at Machhupachare and Annapurna Base Camps
– also great views and a comfortable lodge at Deurali (before Pothana) on the way back

Bhairam and Chhabi took care of organising the details of the trek and we were very happy with the results.

From the day my cousin and I were met at the airport in Kathmandu until the day we left Nepal our guide and porter made our trip a wonderful experience. All throughout our hike the staff at Nepal hiking made our comfort and safety their number one priority. We would highly recommend this trekking company to anyone contemplating a hiking trip to Nepal. Ask for our guide, Mr. Gakul and his porter uncle Gopi and you will not be disappointed.
