Annapurna base camp
ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP TREKKING
The Annapurna Base Camp lies at a height of 4,230 meters and is where mountaineers start their summit of Annapurna I, the 10th highest peak in the world at 8,091 meters. The ABC trail crosses a variety of terrain ranging from glacier and rice terraces to rocky stone steps and, along the way, offers an amphitheater of huge Himalayan peaks. The trek takes you through the villages of the ethnic communities and their fascinating culture. This region is the roots of the Gurkhas. It is especially beautiful during spring as rhododendron flowers along the trail turn red, pink and white.
RELAXATION IN POKHARA
Pokhara is a naturally gifted city with full of lakes, waterfalls and gorges, and of course spectacular views of the Himalayas including Annapurna and Machhapuchhare(worldwide known as Fish Tail Mountain). This is the perfect place to recharge your batteries. There’s a fascinating museum dedicated to the world-famous Gurkha soldier. This city is the gateway to the world-famous treks in and around the Annapurna range and beyond. There are also many adventure sports available in the city.
BASIC YOGA AND MEDITATION PRACTICE
Yoga and meditation are the way of uniting our body, mind and soul. We practice basic yoga and meditation together. During the trekking, we practice pranayama yoga which is the formal practice of controlling our breath. Nepal is the best place to enjoy spiritual tourism with lots of options left for you to choose from. Yoga is an ancient but perfect science that deals with the evolution of humanity.
SIGHTSEEING IN THE KATHMANDU VALLEY
The Kathmandu Valley is located in the foothills of the Himalayas. The valley includes Kathmandu (the capital city of Nepal), Bhaktapur and Lalitpur (Patan) cities and also the nearby towns and villages.
There are altogether 10 sites that are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Nepal. Among the 10 sites 7 sites are inside the Kathmandu valley. We visit these heritage sites. Nepal is an amazing country where Hindus and Buddhists often share the same temples without any problem.

How to get there
Passports and visas
Travelers are responsible for their own valid travel documents.
All people traveling to Nepal need a passport that is valid for at least 6 months after leaving Nepal.
Nepal's currency is the Nepalese rupee (NPR), divided into 100 paisa(rarely used). Changing money is easy and you will find banks, ATMs and exchange offices in all major cities such as Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. ATMs and banks are harder to find in rural areas. In Nepal, the most commonly used payment method is cash.
Vaccinations are not required by the Nepalese government. Consult your local doctor and take the itinerary with you to see if any vaccinations are required for you.
Most travelers carry their luggage in a backpack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice if you are traveling light. Smaller bags or backpacks with wheels are useful, although we recommend that your bag has carry straps. You also need a daypack/bag to carry water and a camera etc for day trips.
In the winter months (December to February) you may need sleeping bags to keep yourself warm in rural areas. For city trips sleeping bags are not necessary.
Because the climate in Nepal can vary, especially in the mountains; where the nights can be cold and it will be warm during the day, we recommend wearing several layers of clothing. And for the hikes; Don’t forget to bring your walking shoes!
Summers can be very hot. Don’t forget to bring a hat or something similar to cover your head.
Normal tips are approximately 200 NPR per day for the driver. And about 300 NPR per day for the guide. Keep in mind that tips are NOT mandatory, but are only given when you are satisfied.
Travel insurance is mandatory for all our trips. We require that you are insured at least for medical costs, including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment, and loss of baggage and personal belongings.
