Annapurna Base Camp Tea House Trek 2021
This is the walk that changed my life and I am so pleased to be in a position to offer it as part of my long-haul programme for 2020. Trekking in Nepal is an experience of a lifetime and will create lasting memories. The landscape and the people combine to make this an extraordinary adventure and I am delighted to be returning.
The trek up to Annapurna Sanctuary is probably the most popular in Nepal and, when you get there, you will realise why. The walking begins in lush foothills with homes and small villages perched on the hillsides. As we progress, the landscape becomes more mountainous in nature with views of sheer, snow clad slopes and the distant peaks that loom above. The highlight, and the high point, of our trek is the view of the Annapurna Sanctuary, a glacial bowl surrounded by some of the highest peaks in the world. The sheer scale and grandeur are breath-taking.
However, out trip is not just about the trekking as Nepal has so much more to offer. We will spend time in Kathmandu exploring its fascinating history and culture and also take time out in Pokhara to enjoy its position on the shores of Lake Phewa Tal. Taking time to explore and acclimatise to a different country and culture will certainly add to our trekking experience.
