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, 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 Phedi 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.
