DISCOVERING NEPAL




Nepal is famous for mountains, and rightly so having all the biggest in the world, and we also explore other aspects of this diverse and fascinating country. The flora and fauna of Chitwan National Park is amazingly accessible. Expect to see rhino and a huge variety of birdlife to enthral even the most disinterested birdwatcher. As the country rebuilds following the 2015 earthquake what it most needs is for visitors to return to see the beauty of the country and the welcome of its people.

We start in Kathmandu walking the back lanes and alleys of this busy city, as well as the classic sites. On the second morning we have left time for those who wish to take an Everest viewing flight (not included) before travelling out to see Patan and walk in the valley.

We fly to Pokhara, drive to Nayapul and start trekking out along the bank of the Modi River towards Ghandrung where we stay two nights. We can visit the Annapurna Conservation Project and enjoy some lovely local walking. The next day we continue to the hot springs at Jhinu for a soak then over two days we continue via Landrung to Dhampus for perhaps the best view of the Annapurna range. Make sure you are up early to enjoy the stunning view of the mountains burning pink in the rising sun. Nobody should miss the sight. The last day on trek is any easy trip down from Dhampus to Suikhet from where we drive back to Pokhara for a bit of comfort with two nights to recover and a day to see around the town.

Next we are off to Chitwan to walk, canoe and ride elephants through the jungle, an extreme contrast to the mountains.

Finally we fly back to Kathmandu for one night and fly home.




WALKING GRADES


Grade 6 walks will be full days, up to 6 hours, with up to 750m of ascent and descent, normally in more remote areas, there may be some steep and rough ground. Departures graded with a sightseeing element will be accompanied for some or all of the holiday by a local guide.

  • Accommodation
    Shangri-La Hotel

    Surrounded by the lush greenery of its award winning garden, the Shangri-La Hotel is a calm oasis in the heart of Kathmandu. The hotel features an outdoor swimming pool next to the famous garden, a well equipped fitness centre, spa and tennis court. 

    All rooms are styled with contemporary furniture and hard wood floors, and come with an electric kettle, tea making facilities and a personal safe. En-suite bathrooms have a hairdryer, hot and cold showers and free toiletries. A comfortable seating area and cable TV are included and all rooms are fully air-conditioned. Guests enjoy free Wi-Fi.

    There’s a relaxed bar, a coffee shop and an Asian restaurant.

     

    Tea huts, along the trail

    Tea huts are a classic Nepali institution that are effectively ‘B&B’s’ run by friendly locals. Staying in one arguably offers the chance to experience the area in a more connected way than can be found through hotel accommodation. They vary in standard, each with its own unique setting and offer ever improving accommodation, good food, warmth and shelter and there is always a great welcome. Breakfast and dinner are taken in the houses. Many have electricity but, in others, dinner will be by romantic candlelight!

    Twin and single rooms are available, but please be aware that the experience is much more like staying in somebody’s house rather than a hotel. We will generally have access to hot running water and flushing toilets, but please note that hot water supplies can be erratic. Most teahouses will have facilities for charging phones/cameras and typically charge about £1 per hour.

    Blankets are supplied in tea huts but the supply is limited so you may choose to bring a 2-3 season sleeping bag or hire one in Kathmandu on arrival if you prefer.

I enjoyed the holiday. Perhaps it would of been helpful to understand that the majority of the walking was done via steps, up and down.
