The Annapurna and Everest regions of Nepal have been a ‘must see' destination for the intrepid trekker for over 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 while staying at comfortable lodges with all the modern conveniences of a hotel. Our luxury lodges all offer spacious rooms which are pleasantly decorated and with running hot and cold water in an attached bathroom. 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 Annapurna and Everest areas in a single holiday and would also like to do this in comfort, we can wholeheartedly recommend this holiday. In each of these regions we have four days of easy walking. No less spectacular is the way we travel between Annapurna and Everest, taking exciting flights along the chain of the Himalaya. In the Annapurnas we trek in the foothills north of Pokhara through picturseque villages and with a sublime backdrop of snowy peaks. In the Everest region we walk from the high airstrip of Lukla to the Sherpa 'city' of Namche Bazaar, where we have time to explore this thriving town and to visit the nearby villages of Khunde and Khumjung. We can also enjoy world-famous views of Everest and Ama Dablam before returning to Lukla. Using first class hotel accommodation in Kathmandu and absolutely the best standard of lodge available in each of the areas we visit, this really is a 'pampered' trekking holiday.
Is this holiday for you?
Generally, the trekking conditions on this Nepal hiking holiday are relatively easy, following good paths and local village trails throughout. The maximum altitude reached on the trip is under 4000 metres. By Himalayan standards this is a fairly modest elevation and the altitude issues attendant on a treks to higher elevations should not be of concern to us on this holiday. It should be noted however, that trekking at altitudes above 3000 metres makes greater demands on the body than walking at low elevations, and is of itself challenging even for fit hikers. Our itinerary is well staged and provides for a very gradual approach to the higher elevations encountered in the Khumbu section of the holiday. No camping is involved on this trip and we stay each night in well-appointed lodges with en-suite facilities. The trekking element of this trip is not long or sustained. However you need to ensure you are physically prepared for the trek. You should be comfortable with walking for 3 to 4 hours each day with the occasional longer day and with ascents up to five or six hundred metres on some days. This trekking holiday should be well within the capabilities of all active hikers and hill-walkers.
