Nepal trekking; easy treks with spectacular views

All our walks and treks in Nepal are private and accompanied by a guide, so no matter what your ability or the level of trek you choose, you dictate the pace. Your luggage is carried by locally recruited Sherpa porters so all you need to take with you is water and your camera. And a sense of belief that these spectacular mountains are for real.          

Our Nepal treks are generally less strenuous and more luxurious than the word trek has come to mean. Instead of staying in basic tea houses or anything like a rudimentary mountain refuge we use small comfortable lodges or simple hotels where you’ll have a clean and cosy room with en-suite bathroom complete with hot running water – a real luxury in the mountains.

You don't have to be Chris Bonnington to enjoy Nepal's mountain scenery. As part of a tour of Nepal we can include relatively easy day walks in the hills, including around Pokhara and the Kathmandu Valley, all with magical views of the Himalaya. These walks are along well-trodden trails used by villagers and school children, across fields and hillsides dotted with ancient monuments and shrines providing a fascinating insight into local culture.

The Annapurna scenery is the Himalaya landscape of dreams - brilliant green terraces stepped above deep gorges, ancient paths through classic Nepali villages and magnificent snow-capped mountains. Our treks between lodges are perfect for fit regular hikers and ideal for active families too. Though the highest point of the trail is only 2133m (7000ft) and the routes are usually graded as an easy trek it’s all relative in the Nepal Himalaya. Some of the stepped paths can be a real challenge but incredible views and the promise of a reviving drink, hot shower and freshly cooked meal at the next lodge keep you going.

The classic trek to Everest Base Camp is an achievable once in a lifetime experience. There is no other trek like it, simply because the trail leads to the highest mountain in the world. We carefully plan your trek so that you ascend through busy Sherpa villages and up steep-sided valleys gradually, allowing time to safely acclimatise to high altitude. Taking on the challenge doesn’t mean having to rough it and that’s why we ensure you spend each night at a cosy lodge. Well-fed and rested, success is yours.

When to go
Late September to early December, when the air is fresh and skies clear giving the best views of the mountains or from the end of February to April when it is warm and dry and rhododendrons begin blooming.  Read more about when to visit Nepal.
