Kathmandu/ Pokhara/ Chitwan Visit And
Annapurna & Langtang Region Trek
Explore Nepal with us along ancient footpaths through the wonderful beautiful forest and dramatic terraced Hillside south of Kathmandu valley. This particular pathway was used by the Rana/shaahah former kings of the 17th century. A century on their way to India. The landscape here is breathtaking! Our trek winds through small villages and isolated homesteads with opportunities to share milk-tea with local villagers and to learn their traditional lifestyles. Our porters carry all the gear – all you carry is a light daypack and your camera. In addition to this unique, culturally-based trek we spend three days in the lush Chitwan Jungle in southern Nepal. Riding on gentle elephants through the dense foliage is a great way to spot wildlife! For two days in Kathmandu, you will learn much from our knowledgeable local guide about the colorful religious and historic events that have created the kingdom of Nepal. This unique itinerary of off-the-beaten-path trekking, jungle hiking, and village/city exploration is ideal for those whose time to Nepal is limited.
Day 01: Upon Arrival to Kathmandu Int’l airport you will be greeted by our representative and transfer you to the hotel. Evening sightseeing to UNESCO World heritage. Overnight in Hotel.
Day 02: Begin with an early morning scenic Mountain flight to Mt. Everest. Fly to the top of the world and see the Himalayan range from above! After lunch, enjoy a guided tour of the city of Kathmandu visiting ancient Hindu pilgrimage sites such as Boudhanath Stupa and Pashupatinath. Overnight at Kathmandu Hotel.
Day 03: Drive to Pokhara and enjoy a free afternoon to rest or explore Pokhara city on your own. (45 min Sound & Herbal Therapy before drive)
Day 04: Trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill We will drive you from Pokhara to Nayapool and trek to Tikhedhunga along the ancient footpaths.
We will meet villagers and farmers who use these trails to get from their village homes to the nearest town. It will be rare to encounter other world travelers along this route. Each day provides the unique opportunity to meet and interact with the local people whose rich Hindu culture has been little touched by the modern world. The terrain includes rolling hills with some steeper sections. We share stories with local families and farmers as we visit their villages. It is not uncommon to be invited into a local home for tea. Trekking through the Himalaya with magnificent views, visiting sacred sites, and interacting genuinely with local villagers gives us a glimpse inside the traditional Nepalese way of life.

Return to your jungle lodge for dinner and overnight at hotel.

Today we enjoy a day of hiking – gradually uphill to the Langtang Valley and the village of Langtang (11,480’). The trail zig-zags higher and higher while offering exciting views of the Langtang peaks that await us. As we climb into the broad valley, we pass old many walls and Goths, temporary shelters for herders. No more than 10km from the border of Tibet, Langtang village itself is a community of stone houses, walled fields of buckwheat and potatoes, and an old gompa with its resident lamas. The people who make Langtang their home are the Tamangs and the Sherpa who, for several hundred years, have Crossed from Tibet to live in the high reaches of the Himalayas. We overnight in a local teahouse.
Day 15: Lang tang Valley (4-5 hours trekking)
Today we celebrate the high mountain beauty that surrounds us – peaks upon peaks of snow-capped Himalayan giants surround the upper Langtang Valley.
After breakfast, enjoy a delightful morning Trek from Langtang to Kyangjin (12,300’). With porters carrying our gear, we wander up and through ruggedly wild and exceedingly beautiful country offering fine mountain scenery; we can see ice-fluted Gangchempo (21,000’) that dominates the eastern landscape. Mean while we pass through icy streams and glacial pools, aside from long mani walls and stone chortens draped in colorful prayer flags, our hike is entirely through the open valley until we reach a Vista at a rise above Kyangjin Gompa. From here the mountain views become even more spectacular with Langtang Lirung (23,700’) being the most dramatic. Overnight in a local Tea house.
Day 16: Today, there are several hiking options: Minor peaks (such as Kyangjin Ri) offer enormous views; the Lirung Cirque of hanging glaciers and the Langtang Lirung base camp are beautiful treks, or the up-valley walk toward Nubamtang (13,123’) with its spectacular mountain views. Above Kyangjin, we follow the Langtang Khola (river) on an easy path that passes yak herder settlements and pastures and cuts across rocky moraines and glacial streams. The walks here in the upper valley are magnificent! Overnight in a local teahouse.
Day 17: Today we bid farewell to the grand high mountain country of Langtang and board our helicopter for a morning flight from Kyangjin to Kathmandu. Transfer to our hotel and enjoy a free afternoon for rest or city exploration. Overnight: Kathmandu lodging.
