Unknown easy walking holidays-Nepal

The Royal Trek

We have shown the itinerary on the basis of a complete holiday purely for illustrative purposes. Naturally as tailor-made Nepal holiday specialists we would be happy to discuss additional options, whether it be other activities, more/less sightseeing, alternative/upgraded accommodation etc dependent upon your interests, preferences and time available. We even tailor-make a suggested 'what to pack' list for you based upon your ultimately chosen Nepal tailor-made holiday too.

Day 1 - Arrive Kathmandu

Arriving at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you'll be met and receive a private transfer for the short distance into central Kathmandu and to the "KGH" Hotel in the heart of the Thamel district. You'll be given a briefing on your forthcoming adventure, and in the evening can take dinner at your leisure in one of the many choices of cafes & restaurants in Kathmandu, although the open air courtyard cafe of the KGH Hotel is as good as anywhere,

Accommodation: KGH Hotel -   Kathmandu

Included Meals: None

 

Day 2 - Fly to Pokhara & Trek to Chisapani

A private transfer to the airport for the 25min flight to Nepals premier resort-Pokhara. It's around a 30+minute private vehicle transfer to Begnas Lake and to the trail head, where you'll meet your porters and camp crew. The hiking trail heads up into the foothills of the Annapurna Range. Already one has a real sense of space and clear air and soon you'll attain heights which offer views down to Rupal Lake, up to Machhapuchare (Fishtail) and the entire Annapurna range. Overnight is by the charming village of Chisapani with its tiny Buddhist Monastery. The campsite at approx 1260m is surrounded by trees and a short 2 minute hike up the hill brings you to a ridge from where the full vista of the Annapurnas presents itself. Walking time approx 4-5hrs with approx. 700m ascent. You can of course add a stay in Pokhara or Begnas before you go hiking.

Accommodation: Camp, Chisapani

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 - Trek to Lipiyani

You're within sight of the same mountains yet the views constantly change. The mighty Annapurna II, Manaslu and Lamjung loom large and a love affair with Machhupuchare continues. Todays walk makes for relatively easy  hiking by Himalayan standards as you follow an open ridge line with 'ups & downs' but not particularly sustained  Overnight campsite close to the small village of Lipiyani (1100m) Walking time approx. 4 hrs with around 500m ascent and descent.

Accommodation: Camp, Lipiyani

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 

Day 4 - Trek to Begnas and transfer to Pokhara

It's virtually all downhill as your final day of walking completes this mini-horsehoe circuit of the Annapurna foothills. Waking to 'bed tea' again, it's a good idea to rise early and (hopefully) enjoy a magnificent panoramic Himalayan sunrise as the peaks of the Annapurna range turn from pink to gold. After breakfast the trail descends towards the lakes of Begnas and Rupal and the walking becomes more level. There's no hurry at all today and you'll stop for a relaxing lunch along the way. At the end of the trail a private vehicle will whisk you back to Pokhara. Walking time approx 4hrs, approx 700m descent.

Accommodation: Hotel Karuna -  Pokhara

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

 

Day 5 - Fly to Kathmandu

A private transfer to Pokhara airport for the return flight to Kathmandu. You'll receive a private vehicle transfer to your hotel in downtown Kathmandu. The remainder of the day is at your leisure. However, you may wish to consider some additional contingency for this trek, whether it be for any delays/cancellations that can and do occur for internal flights , or any difficulties that may arise on the trek.

Accommodation: KGH Hotel, Kathmandu

Included Meals: Breakfast

 

Day 6 - Depart Nepal

A private transfer will take you to the airport for your return international flight.
