Overview

Enjoy some of the most picturesque landscapes in Nepal. Lush, green farmland, terraced fields, tumbling streams, smiling villagers and the backdrop of some of the world's great peaks, including Annapurna 1 and the stunning 'Fish Tail' peak of Machhapuchhre.
This superb, easy-paced Annapurna Trek holiday package has been refined and extended for 2018 and provides the perfect introduction to the foothills of the Nepal Himalaya. We start out with a city sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, before flying on to Nepal's second city, Pokhara. Six days of Annapurna Trek expedition then takes us to some of the prettiest villages in the valley of the Modi Khola, on the south side of the Annapurnas. Staying in comfortable and characterful Ker and Downey lodges, with twin-share rooms and en-suite facilities, we will be able to enjoy some of the most picturesque landscapes in Nepal. Lush, green farmland, terraced fields, tumbling streams, smiling villagers and the backdrop of some of the world's great peaks, including Annapurna 1 and the stunning 'Fish Tail' peak of Machhapuchhre. Walking through rhododendron forest, with tree orchids, magnificent magnolias and several species of monkey, we will stay each night at a different lodge, each with its own particular charm, great food and outstanding views. Returning to Pokhara, we spend a night at a very comfortable resort hotel, before making the short drive to the Newari village of Bandipur. Famed for the quality of its architecture, which dates back several hundred years, this is a great place to spend a couple of nights, do some exploring, meet the Nepali people and soak up those final views of the Himalayas. Our Ker and Downey lodge close to Bandipur is called the Three Mountain Lodge for good reason. Three of the world's 8000 metre peaks can be seen from our private balconies - Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu. Using first class hotel accommodation in Kathmandu and absolutely the best standard of lodge available on the south side of the Annapurnas, this really is a 'pampered' one week trekking holiday.

Level of difficulty

Annapurna Everest Spectacular program is designed for those who are seeking for adventure and those who want to get a taste of the high mountain experience and to be amongst the Sherpa community.

This is a combination of Moderate & Strenuous grade trek: most trek days are 4-5 hours long with only a couple being a little longer; altitude gain is usually around 300-500m /day and the paths and tracks are generally wide and well-marked. We ask that you have a reasonable level of fitness, but you don’t need to be an experienced trekker to enjoy this trip. But trekking experience would work wonder while going through these trails. Your trek leaders will ensure we take a comfortable pace on the trail and you’ll have Sherpa support in every step of the way.

If you’re comfortable going on day walks in low hills in your home country (e.g. the Cotswolds, UK) or maybe you swim, cycle or take a class a couple of times a week you should find this trek well within your means. Having a hot shower and many other creature comforts to look forward to makes each day’s trekking even more of a joy! (And you can always indulge in a massage or other spa treatment at our Namche and Lukla lodges to relax any tired or achy muscles)
