Discovering Nepal

A feast of mountain walking and wildlife spotting 
 

The cold air of a Himalayan morning chills the bones as you climb from a warm bed. The still world of the high mountains is interrupted by the occasional cock crowing. But the day is slowly changing. The faintest pink glow begins to illuminate the majesty of the mountains in front of you. In contrast, the jungle sun warms the afternoon as your elephant transport labours slowly through the long grass. The mahout points to the right and there, completely unconcerned by your presence stands a wild rhino. Different experiences, different climates, both quintessentially Nepali. Enjoy!

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 independent optional Everest viewing flight with a local air excursion operator 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 Jhinu to take a soak in the hot springs 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


Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent. These walks are in more remote areas such as the Alps or northern Portugal. Similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance.
