Discover a different side to life with Intrepid Travel.

On this amazing adventure release your inner hippy in beautiful Pokhara, stay in traditional Nepalese teahouses, taste Newari soups and curries, and explore the temples of Bhaktapur. In addition you’ll be swept up in the warmth and colour of Kathmandu, trek through the majestic Annapurna Sanctuary, and discover the customs of Nepalese mountain life.

Days 1-2 Kathmandu
A fusion of historical and modern, the city of Kathmandu swarms with life and colour a wonderful place to begin this Nepal trekking experience. Meet monkeys while climbing to Swayambhunath and delve into the mystical charm of Durbar Square.

Day 3 Bhaktapur
Travel south-east to ancient Bhaktapur, a haven of intricate temples, grand old palaces and vibrant courtyards. Few cars enter Bhaktapur, so wandering through the paved streets and narrow alleyways offers a taste of pre-modern Kathmandu.

Day 4 Pokhara
Temples and palaces are replaced by soaring mountains and mirror lakes. Once on the vibrant trade route between India and Tibet, Pokhara is the gateway to some of Nepal’s greatest treks.

Days 5-14 Annapurna Ranges
Hike through lowland pastures and peaceful villages, past thundering waterfalls and powerful glaciers, and be surrounded by unspeakably beautiful landscapes. The ever-changing scenery covers some of the most ruggedly beautiful mountains in the world and it’s easy to understand why hiking in Nepal has long been revered by adventure travellers. Stay in basic Nepalese teahouses operated by locals and learn about the daily lives of the hill people. Witness spectacular sunrises over the Annapurna ranges and soak tired muscles in natural hot springs along the way. While the Annapurna Sanctuary trek is challenging, it is a great way to experience these spectacular mountains without the major issues associated with high altitude – the optional trek to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130 m) is the greatest elevation reached.

Days 15-16 Pokhara
The final stretch is downhill all the way. With the hard work all done, enjoy a well-earned shower back in Pokhara and plenty of time to relax, recover and reminisce about the Annapurna experience.
