Trek Annapurna and Everest

There are few places on earth that offer such stunning mountain vistas and incredible trekking. This carefully designed itinerary offers the first time trekker a wonderful introduction to Nepal's highest and finest mountain ranges - Annapurna and Everest. We commence with the delights of the Kathmandu Valley and the largest concentration of UNESCO sites in any one city of the world, before our spectacular mountain flight whisks us off to Pokhara. We walk through the Annapurna foothills and rhododendron forests, and experience picturesque villages on the way to our high point - the world famous Poon Hill. At 3190m, the outstanding views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri are incredible. Our next trekking adventure takes us to the Khumbu region, home to Mount Everest. Now well acclimatised from our Annapurna trek, we ascend the Dudh Kosi Valley to the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, spend a day at Syangboche with its fine views of Everest, and explore the picturesque villages of Khumjung and Khunde. This unforgettable journey showcases the contrasts of the best known regions of the Nepal Himalaya.

Karat is a very special and professional guide and we cannot thank him enough for how well he cared for us. The food on the trip was another major highlight - fantastic local produce.
