Unknown Nepal Treks

Nepal Classic Treks

Take your pick! Nepal is far from short of Classic Himalayan treks. Whether it's the standard trekking route to Everest Base Camp, or the Annapurna Circuit ,a Mustang Trek to Lo Manthang or the very challenging Dhaulagiri Circuit, the choices for a walking holiday in the Nepal Himalayas are just incredible. Then again, in the Himalayas what would you expect? Of course there are many trekking routes where you can stay overnight in trekkers lodges in Nepal. Tea House Treks are by far the most popular.

 

Things constantly change in the Himalayas, improved road access and the addition of teahouses on the Manaslu Circuit Trek for example. When we first did this trek back in the 1990's it took ten days longer and was wild camping all the way!

 

                         Now in the Everest, Annapurna & Lower Mustang regions you can now even hike in style and indulge in....

 

LUXURY LODGE TREKS

 

It's reckoned that over 80% of people hiking in Nepal head for the Everest, Annapurna & Langtang regions. That's an awful lot of Himalayas for the remainder to explore!

 

Around 55,000 set off during each trekking season for Everest Base Camp, yet less than 2,000 trek in Upper Mustang and the Manaslu area. For areas like Dolpo and Nar Phu, it's almost "just a hand full" in comparison.

 

One thing you need for any of these treks is time as these Himalayan hikes don't fit into a regular two week holiday. 

 

But we also have plenty of SHORT NEPAL TREKS that will!

 

Our "Nepal Classic Treks" below focus on the best known treks in Nepal, although some are still "off the beaten track" treks too.

 

For the "seriously special" treks, which very, very few people undertake as they are both quite extreme and very lengthy....yes, we can and do operate those too. Whether it's a section of the Great Himalaya Trail, Makalu Base Camp, Rara Lake, Humla or the Kanchenjunga region, all you need to do is get in touch!

 

We don't operate fixed schedule "join a group" tours. SNOW CAT TRAVEL IS EXCLUSIVE all our treks are PRIVATE AND FULLY CUSTOMISABLE only. You can add extra days along the way for rest and more acclimatisation, where practical shorten the walking duration of some days, add in some additional contingency, or even some "chill out" time before and after trek, or anything that takes your fancy!

 

ALL TREKS are with a professional and licensed, english-speaking SNOW CAT TRAVEL GUIDE*, plus PORTERAGE and INCLUDE ALL MEALS & ACCOMMODATION ON TREK & MORE! *For larger private groups additonal assistant guides are deployed.

     Hotels & Trekking Lodges/Teahouses

Just the name 'Mustang' fires the imagination. A wild, barren & arid high mountain desert that's more 'Tibet' than Nepal. From Jomsom you journey through this unforgiving yet incredible landscape over high passes to reach the legendary capital Lo Manthang. Returning via a different route.

Dolpo & The Crystal Mountain

Shey Gompa, Phoksundo Lake and the 'Demons Trail' await the intrepid adventure traveller on this very challenging, fascinating circuit trek to Inner Dolpo.
