Trek Nepal in 2018

Autumn 2018 | The people of land-locked, beautiful Nepal are waiting to show you the breathtakingly stunning Himalayan trek from the Annapurna foothills to the top of Poon Hill.

TREK NEPAL – the full breakdown

Nepal is ready to welcome you – Grab your hiking boots and prepare for sensory overload with this unforgettable trek in magical Nepal.

Visit the temples and markets in Kathmandu, pick up some spices and get your first taste of Dahl Bat before boarding a plane to the trekking Mecca of Pokhara and feasting your eyes on the captivating Himalayan Panorama from high in the sky. Once we land in Pokhara the challenge will really begin –  we will commence an epic 4 day hike to Poon Hill summit at 3,210m in the breath-taking Annapurna Circuit.

The trek takes us through the charming settlements of Gurung with its slate-roofed houses, amazing rhododendron forests and deep sub-tropical valleys all set below the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range.

Enjoy the exceptional vistas from our traditional teahouse accommodation over a honey ginger tea or cool down after a long day’s trekking in the natural rock pools – all along one of the most amazing routes Nepal has got to offer.

The reward that awaits at the summit on day 3 of our trek is the sight of some of the world’s highest mountains stretching out in their snow-capped glory for as far as the eye can see.

Weary legs and bodies will then make the return journey Kathmandu to continue the adventure…

Note: The Annapurna region of Nepal was not affected by the 2015 earthquakes, so the route of our trek is completely safe, and the beautiful villages along the way are eagerly awaiting visitors. Our guides and porters for our trek, provided by the Umbrella Trekking Company, are fully registered, and very experienced, and have assured us that it is safe proceed with the trek.
