Trekking In Nepal

1. Annapurna Sanctuary (14 days):
This trek starts at Pokhara after half a day's scenic drive. We trek towards west Nepal along river beds and terraced hillsides on trails which disappear through blazing rhododendron clusters and oak forests. We visit the picturesque village of Ghandrung, inhabited by Gurung people. We follow the deep narrow corridor of the Mardi Gorge. Mardi Gorge is the entrance to the “ Sanctuary” a spectacular Mountain amphitheater formed by the towering peaks of Annapurna III, Gangapurna Glacier Dome and Machhapuchhare. We pitch camp at 4065 m. altitude. On return we descend though the gorge and cross the Deurali pass from which we have a birds eye view of the Kali Gandaki river valley.

2. Annapurna Circuit Trek (21 days):
The popular trek circles the Annapurna mass, starting at Dumre, west of Kathmandu and ending up in Pokhara. Most of the time during this trek we are in the vicinity of the entire range of the Annapurnas, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhare (Fish tail ). We have an excellent view of these spectacular peaks throughout the trek. The high point of the trek entails the crossing of the 5414 m. high Thorong pass from the arid valley of upper Manang, home of Tibeto-Buddhists. We descend down to the famous Hindu pilgrimage site of Muktinath with its 108 fountains. We walk along the Kaligandaki valley, the worlds deepest river gorge, before heading down to Pokhara. When we pass the Thorong pass we are in a completely different valley, inhabited by famous hill traders, namely the Thakali tribe.

3. Royal Trek (5-6 days):
This trek is also called a “VIP TREK” as this is the trail used by the Prince of Wales. It is especially recommended for people over 60-65 years of age. This is a comfortable and easy trek and is noted not only for the cultural study of the Gurung tribes but also for its splendid scenery. On this route one can see the famous Rupa and Begnas lake and also have a very close and magnificent view of Machhapuchhare, Annapurna, Manaslu, Himalchuli and Lamjung Peaks.

4. Pokhara – Gandrung- Ghorepani (8-9 days) :
We trek through emerald green terraced rice fields through villages of Gurungs and ex- Gorkha soldiers. From the tower at Poon Hill one gets a spectacular view of Machhapuchhare, Dhaulagiri, Himalchuli and most other western peaks. A magnificent view of the Kali Gandaki valley can be seen from this vantage point as well.

5. Siklis (9 days):
The trek starts at Begnas Lake, a glacial lake in Pokhara. We can view the staggering Annapurna summits as we follow the Mardi River Valley. This trek again gives the opportunity to study Gurung villages. We reach the beautiful and charming village of Siklis where we have a rest day. For those interested, a short ascent will provide spectacular views of the Annapurna, Machhapuchhare and Lamjung mountains.
