Nepal offers some of the best trekking in the world; we walk between comfy lodges with views of snow-capped mountains that are, quite literally, awesome.
Trekking in Nepal
The undisputed trekking capital of the world, our private treks in Nepal are generally less demanding and more comfortable than the word has come to mean.
Wake to tea in bed with a magnificent view each day and trek at your own pace with your private guide. Your luggage is carried by locally recruited Sherpa porters so all you need to take is your camera – and a sense of belief that these truly spectacular mountains are for real.
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 character mountain lodges are perfect for fit regular hikers and ideal for active families too.
The classic trek to Everest Base Camp is an achievable once in a lifetime experience. There’s no other trek like it, simply because it leads to the highest mountain in the world. We carefully plan your trek so that you safely acclimatise to high altitude and spend each night at a cosy lodge. Well-fed and rested, success is yours.
Hikes in the hills around Pokhara and the Kathmandu Valley shouldn’t be forgotten – all have magical Himalayan views. Walk along well-trodden trails used by villagers, school children and pilgrims, across fields and hillsides dotted with ancient monuments and shrines for a fascinating insight into local culture.

Highlights of trekking in Nepal
Often the best adventures involve looking beyond the obvious highlights. It’s about the exhilarating encounters that will make your heart sing. These are encounters that nobody could ever predict, but that make your travels genuinely unique.
BEST TIME FOR TREKS IN NEPAL
Peak season for trekking in Nepal, is from late September to early December when the air is fresh after the monsoons giving the clearest views of the mountains.
From the end of February to April it is warm and dry and the rhododendrons are in flower bringing a second wave of trekkers to Nepal before a haze gradually obscures the mountains from lower elevations.
In January and February you should be prepared for very cold nights and a lack of heating except in Kathmandu’s luxury hotels but this is a good time to trek around the rim of the Kathmandu valley.

Trekking the paths of ancient trade
Many of the trekking paths used today are centuries old trails on trade and pilgrim routes across the mountains and remote areas where roads still barely exist.
The trails are well worn but can be steep, often with hundreds of steps cut into the hillsides and simple suspension bridges swinging across gorges and gushing rivers.
Our Favourite Camps & Lodges
Situated in Chitwan’s buffer zone near the Rapti river, Tharu Lodge is owned and managed by the famous Tiger Tops group who set up the first camp in the jungle.Learn More
The accommodation at Karnali Lodge is fairly simple but what you will find here is some great staff who will arrange a personalised wildlife programme.Learn More
How fit do you need to be to trek in Nepal?
We specialise in shorter private treks that are within the capabilities of those who enjoy hiking and hill walking at home. We recommend beginning a programme of regular exercise before your trek.
Step classes, running up and downstairs and jogging or cycling on an incline, together with stretching, toning and balance exercises will help ensure you’re fit to trek.
