Trekking in the Annapurnas

Annapurnas, Nepal

There is a huge variety of treks to be enjoyed in Nepal, which can range from just a few days to several weeks for those who wish to really get off the beaten track. And there is a wide variety of accommodation ranging from classic camping treks where you stay in tents to staying in local lodges known as tea-houses or for those who prefer some luxury then there are some delightful mountain lodges.

Whatever the style of trek you choose experienced Sherpas will serve as your guides, interpreters, cooks and camp staff. Porters, horses or yaks will carry all your personal belongings, as well as food, fuel and camping equipment so that you need only carry what you might want during the day.

Trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas offers a truly sublime opportunity to see a very different and utterly stunning part of the world whilst meeting the enchanting local people in their beautiful mountain villages and experience a very different and enriching culture.

Bathe elephants in the Karnali River

Elephant Bathing, Nepal

To head down to the Karnali River with the camp’s elephants and their mahouts and help give them their daily bath is a very special and humbling experience. These magnificent creatures that have been part of camp life for so long are so gentle and serene and this experience offers the opportunity to get up close and personal with them and share a small part of their lives.

It is also possible to head out with them into the fields where the mahouts cut the grass for them to east back in the camp.

The best months to visit Nepal are either the Spring months of March to May when the skies are generally blue, the days are warm and the flowers and rhododendrons are out in bloom or the Autumn months of October & November when the skies are wonderfully clear offering great mountain views and the scenery is lush and green after the monsoon rains.

The Winter months of December to February are a lovely time to be in Nepal, but it tends to be much colder especially at night and some higher altitude treks can be blocked by snow.  The Summer months of June to early September bring the monsoon rains so not a great time to visit.
