Our trip begins from the bustling capital city of Kathmandu also known as Kasthamandap in the old lingo franca. Flying into the Kathmandu valley in itself is a breath taking experience with a medieval haphazard city sprawling beneath and the Himalayas so near to touch... here we explore some of the oldest and quaintest cultures of the valley.
We then take a short Himalayan flight to Pokhara an oasis of lakes and the start point of some of the most beautiful treks in the world. Our meandering hike start from Nayapul through Ulleri and Ghorepani, talking time to marvel at nature in all its glory - from the colorful orchids to the Himalayas ahead - Mt. Annapurna (8091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m).
It is with triumph that at Poon Hill, 3210 m., we witness one of the most awesome panoramas of the world. The amphitheater of the entire Annapurna's with rice terraces and small villages in Himalayan settings.

Perhaps some of the most memorable moments are the time we spend interacting with the local communities and our Sherpa crew that accompany you and help you understand a little more of Nepal and its people.
