Overview

When you arrive, you will be greeted by our representative, who will accompany you to the hotel. Also, provide a synopsis of your trekking itinerary and any other pertinent information. The trek will be at a leisurely pace throughout the day, following well-worn paths. Although this trek is gentle by Himalayan standards, you need to be prepared to walk up some steep inclines at certain points during the trip. You will be traveling between All Nepal Adventure Tours & Treks which will involve daily distances of an average of six to thirteen kilometers. There will be plenty of opportunities to take a short break, and most of the trekking will be in the morning so that you arrive at your next lodge in time for lunch. Afternoons are at leisure unless otherwise specified. The highest altitude at which you will trek is around 4,200 meters. You will only need to carry a small backpack, but this is a physically challenging holiday so if you are in any doubt about its suitability, do not hesitate to ask us.
