Best of Peru & Bolivia

The hotels were great, the guides were very professional, and the guide we had on the trek was so experienced and attentive to all our abilities and needs. The food, and general standard of hygiene on the trek was outstanding.

Two great memories that I have are, firstly, trekking through the Andes with the guide in front playing his pipes as we walked, and making our offerings of coca leaves to the Inca gods at the Sun Gate....

Spring Trekking in the Himalayas

03/02/2017

For those after warmer daytime temperatures, blossoming flora and generally stable weather, spring is the ideal season for trekking in Nepal and Bhutan.

Spring is considered to be one of the best seasons to trek and climb in the Himalaya. There are less fellow trekkers compared to the autumn months, Everest Base Camp will be full of life due to the climbing season and the trails over high mountain passes such as the Cho La, Larkya La and Thorong La in Nepal and Shinge La in Bhutan are clear. Add to that temperatures of 16-23 degrees C during the day in the upper hills & lower mountain ranges and warmer nights - and your Himalayan trekking adventure is complete!

>> See rhododendrons in full bloom and book on the Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek in March and April.
