Kathmandu Valley Trek

This idyllic walk takes you through quiet forests and bustling villages in the Shivapuri Valley and then up to Shivapuri Hill (2729m), the highest point on this trek. From the top of Shivapuri Hill you’ll see more than 60 towering mountain peaks, including Manaslu, Boudhahimal, Ganeshhimal, Langtang range, Dorjeelakpa, Shisapangma and Gaurishankar. You’ll also trek to the village of Nagarkot, one of the most scenic locations in the entire Kathmandu Valley with commanding views of the great Himalayan peaks.

Langtang Valley

A trek to Langtang valley starts with an overland journey to Syabrubesi, a small string of shops and hotels. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of peaks to the south. This area was designated Nepal’s first Himalayan national park in 1971. This high and isolated region is inhabited by the Tamangs, whose religious practices, language and dress are more similar to those of Tibet then to the traditions of their cousins in the middle hills. According to a legend a lama following a runaway yak discovered the valley. Hence the name – lang its Tibetan for yak, and teng means to follow. Though is area is relatively close to Kathmandu, the region sees far fewer trekkers than Everest and Annapurna. This trek is easily combined with the Gosainkunda Trek.

 NOTE
Due to the rough nature of the road and the 6+ hour transfer each way we recommend a 4WD transport to and from Syabrubesi. The cost for a 4WD vehicle is approximately US$200 each way which can be shared with up to 5 persons.

 Highlights
Alpine scenery, chance to mix with the Tamang people.

Trek dates
September to late December and February to late June

Mustang Region

The kingdom of Lo is strategically positioned along the main trade route between Tibet and India. In the 15th-17th centuries traders carried salt and wool to India and spices and grain back to Tibet, following the course of the mighty Kali Gandaki River. The Kingdom of Lo was part of Tibet until it joined with Nepal in 1790. This district is the lone bastion of traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture and religion in the predominantly Hindu Nepal.

The kingdom was closed to outsiders in 1960, when eastern Tibetans began their fight against Chinese forces. The region was not reopened to outsiders until 1991, and upper Mustang is still closed to casual visitors. A small number of permits are issued each year to trekking companies, and a government liaison accompanies each trekking party in the restricted area of upper Mustang. We hold a small number of permits for 2008, each permit costing 700 USD.

Manaslu & Tsum Valley

Manaslu, the world’s 8th highest mountain, marks the geographical mid-point of Nepals Great Himalaya Trail, and there are few 8000 meter peaks that allow trekkers to get up so close. Its Sanskrit name means “Mountain of the Spirit” and this spirit seems to reflect into the peaceful villages and valleys that encircle it. Since 2010 it has been possible to complete the trek in traditional teahouses without the need to camp, and many people now compare it favorably to the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Along the cliffs of the lower Budi Gandaki river valley the trails are narrow and challenging, and wind through fascinating villages of varied character. Higher up valleys widen and the mountain views are breath-taking. The highest point on the trek, the Larkya La (5135m) commands views over four converging glaciers and the steep walls of the Lamjung and Annapurna ranges.

Annapurna Circuit 17 Days

This 17 day variation of the Annapurna Circuit trek follows the same route as the traditional trek
as far as Jomsom where the trek ends with a return flight to Pokhara.
Annapurna Circuit, considered one of the best trekking/hiking trails in the world, is the classic
long distance trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The trek is one of contrasts between the
green, terraced farmland of the Marshyangdi valley and the semi-arid environs of Lower Mustang.
The two areas are separated by the Thorong La Pass (5416m), which we must cross on a long day,
to reach the sacred site of Muktinath. The temple complex is a pilgrimage site for both Hindus and
Buddhists and when seen from here the sunrise on Dhaulagiri is particularly striking.

Annapurna Circuit 23 Days

The Annapurna Circuit, considered one of the best trekking/hiking trails
in the world, is the classic long distance trek in the Annapurna region of
Nepal. The trek is one of contrasts between the green, terraced farmland of
the Marshyangdi valley and the semi-arid environs of Lower Mustang. The two
areas are separated by the Thorong La River (5416m), which we must cross
on a long day, to reach the sacred site of Muktinath. The temple complex is
a pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists and when seen from here
the sunrise on Dhaulagiri is particularly striking. We descend into the world’s
deepest river gorge, carved by the mighty Kali Gandaki, as it slices between
the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs. The river meanders to the relaxing hot
springs at Tatopani before ascending to Poon Hill for our last sunrise over the
Annapurnas.

Everest Gokyo Ri Trek

The trek to Goyko offers an alternative to the traditional Everest base camp trek. From Goyko Ri, more of
Everest itself is visible than from Kala Pattar above Gorak Shep (see Everest Base Camp Trek). The mountains
are more spectacular, the Ngozumpa Glacier is the largest in the Nepal Himalaya and, from a ridge above
Goyko, four 8000-meter peaks (Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu) are visible. The view of the
tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7922m) is one of the most dramatic panoramas
in Khumbu. This trek is less crowded then the base camp trek.
