Gokyo Lakes - Having arrived in Kathmandu there is time to relax, sight see and shop! There is much to see and do in the fascinating city of Kathmandu. Then a short flight takes you to the village of Lukla over breath taking views of the mountains of Nepal. The trek then takes a couple of days to reach Namche Bazaar the busy market village where the Sherpas of Nepal come from and time is spent here acclimatising. The trek moves on to reach Gokyo where there are series of beautiful holy lakes. The tranquillity of the place is wonderful and the views particularly at sunset are quite superb. To see the fifth lake at Henjo/Renjo La (5417m) is a demanding walk, however, the scenery when you get there makes it very well worth the effort. There is an optional walk up to Gokyo Ri which is well worth doing for the breathtaking scenery. From here four of the fourteen 8000 metre mountains in the world can be seen - Everest, Lhotse Cho Oyu and Makalu

Mustang Trek - The Mustang region of Nepal was only opened to trekkers in the early 1990's and the attraction of this area is its' remoteness and heavy Tibetan influence. To protect the local Tibetan traditions from outside influence as well as to protect the environment only a small number of special permits are issued each year. Mustang was the former Kingdom of Lo and is now part of Nepal and borders with Tibet on the northern border of Nepal. The trekking in this region is superb with wonderful ancient villages to visit, Tibetan Buddhist Gompas (monasteries), spectacular snow topped peaks and all steeped in the Buddhist traditions.
Christmas Nepal Trek - This trek will take you to Annapurna, one of the most beautiful trekking regions in the world.

Treks combine a physical challenge with a chance to sample ancient Buddhist culture in a landscape of intense beauty. These holidays are very popular with trekkers because of the unspoilt countryside in Nepal and Tibet and the challenge of trekking at altitude in the clear air of the majestic Himalayan mountain range.
Our treks take you through some of the most beautiful parts of Nepal, including the Throng la Pass at over 5,000 metres, with views of the Annapurna range. Some trips involve trekking through rhododendron forests and visiting holy lakes, whilst others reach the famous Tengboche Buddhist monastery and Everest Base Camp itself, with Everest and the Khumbu ice fall as a spectacular backdrop.
Previous experience is not necessary for our Treks and all are supported by expert local Sherpa Guides, porters and helpers. A good level of fitness is important however and we will be happy to advise you about this. Also, see How fit do I need to be?
