Discovering Nepal16 days Tea House Trek in Nepal with five nights trekking, staying in ‘Tea Huts’
Nepal is famous for mountains, and rightly so having all the biggest in the world, but we should also explore other aspects of this diverse and fascinating country. The flora and fauna of Chitwan park is amazingly accessible, expect to see Rhino and a huge variety of birdlife to enthral even the most disinterested birdwatcher. Expect to meet and chat with locals on the trek, you will be welcomed everywhere.
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 some time for anybody who wishes 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 Phedi and start immediately on our trek staying in tea huts, enjoying the best views of the Annapurna range, the mountain air and some exercise. We travel at a gentle pace through the stunning scenery of the foothills of the Himalayas. We move on each night until we reach the welcoming town of Ghandrung. Here we stay two nights to enjoy some great walking without the consideration of packing each morning.
From tea huts we trek back towards Pokhara and stay in comfort for two nights to recover.
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.
