Annapurna Circuit Trekk
The Annapurna Circuit is a 300 kilometre trek ! around the Annapurna mountain range in the Himalayas. The
trek reaches an altitude of 5,300 meters on the Thorung La pass, touching the edge of the fabled Tibetan plateau.
The magnificent mountain scenery, seen at close quarters includes Annapurna 8,091 meters which was the first
8,000 meter peak to be climbed, the incredible ice pyramid Dhauligiri 8,167 meters, once the home of the
legendary Buddhist guru Padmasamba, and Machhupuchhare 6,993 metres, considered by many travelers to be
the most beautiful mountain in the world. Annapurna literally means "full of food", but is normally translated as
Goddess of the Harvests. In this trek you basically follow ancient paths used as trade routes between Nepal and
Tibet. These paths have long facilitated the flow of cultures and religions in this remote and formerly
inaccessible region. The unusually wide range of climatic zones in such a small area as the path ascends from
900 meters to 5,300 meters provides a chance to see many different plants and animals, and the different ways
of life of the many people who live there!
Duration of the Trek: 21 days
Cost of the Trek: $800 (USD) per person

Annapurna Base Camp
The Annapurna Sanctuary / Base camp trek is a hike into the dazzling natural amphitheater formed by the
staggeringly beautiful peaks of the giants - Annapurna 1, Glacier Dome, Gangapurna, Fang and the fishtail peak
of Machapuchare. Although there is only one entrance to the sanctuary itself, we follow locally known, lesserused
approaches and exit routes on our premier Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The vast amphitheater of the
Annapurna Sanctuary is encircled by the famous Himalayan peaks – the 'fishtail' spire of Machapuchare
(6997m), Gangapurna (7454m), Annapurna 1 (8091m), the unclimbed Fang (7647m) and Annapurna South
(7273m). The only approach follows the Modi Khola Valley through forests of oak, rhododendron and bamboo,
passing through local Gurung villages to a world of soaring peaks.
Duration of the Trek: 15 days
Cost of the Trek: $ 885 (USD) per person

rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the
picturesque fluted peak of Machapuchare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline. At the climax of this trek you
will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountainscape on Earth. As the sun touches
the snowcapped summits the Himalayan Giants, Dhaulagiri 8,167m and Annapurna 8,091m along with a maze
of other peaks slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. Rewarding treks, this can be enjoyed by
every lover of nature and beautiful landscape.

Everest Base Camp
Early in the morning, you will have wonderful fly from Kathmandu to Lukla with a Nepal geographical friendly
small plane. During the flight, you will have magnificent geographical views from your seat. Among them,
snow capped high Himalayas, colourful flowered green hills, tinny settlements, river gorges are some of
significant view during your flight. Your Eco-friendly Trekking guide will show you much more and explain
upon your questions about magnificent views from your plane.
The Everest region may be reached by STOL (short take-off and landing) airstrips at LukIa (2.800 metres),
Shyangboche (3.700 metres), or Phaphlu (2364 meters) or by an eight-day trek from the road head at Jiri, 188
km from Kathmandu. Those who fly to Lukla miss the historic and culturally fascinating route followed by the
Everest expeditions of the ''50s and '60s.
It is best to take the time to walk from Jiri, then after acclimatization and conditioning afforded by the trek, visit
base camp or climb Kala Pattar and either fly out from Lukla or walk back by an alternative route to
Kathmandu. Those who insist their time is limited can fly to Lukla and spend as little as six days to visit
Namche Bazaar and Thyangboche. It is ill advised to attempt a quick visit to base camp, because of the lack of
time for acclimatization, if you fly in to one of these airstrips. You should allow at least eight or nine days to
reach the base camp region if you fly to Lukla; the return from base camp to Lukla can be made in as few as
four or five days, so an absolute minimum of two weeks is required for a safe trek to base camp. The timing is
further complicated because flights to LukIa often do not work as planned, so those with a tight schedule would
do well to allow a few spare days for both the flight in and the flight out.
Interesting and justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain, but also for its
Sherpa villages and monasteries, the Everest, or Solu Khumbu area is the second most popular trekking
destination in Nepal. The primary objective of Everest treks is either the Everest base camp, about 5.340 meters,
or Kala Pattar, an unassuming 5.545 meter hump on the southern flank of Pumori (7,161 meters), which
provides a fine view of Everest (8.848 meters).
Duration of Trek: 17 days
Cost of Trek: $1100 (USD) per person

sparkling waterfalls flowing down through an oak forest. This trek offers the experience of being in a typical
