Nepal Short Treks

Nepal Short Treks

Hand-Crafted to Perfection

Yes, you really can enjoy a two week Nepal trek. We've even got shorter Nepal treks than that too. Even on a short Nepal trek you can even find yourself off the beaten track too. Although shorter in duration, some are reasonably challenging, whilst others are fairly easy treks. Nepal has just about every possibility. 


  • You can enjoy low altitude walks in the Annapurna Region, the Himalayan foothills and the Kathmandu Valley, as well as higher altitude short walks in the Everest region. 

    You'll have an english-speaking guide, porterage & all meals provided. You only carry what you need with you for the days walking in your back pack e.g waterproofs, additional warm layer, camera, water etc. The porters carry your main baggage. Most of our short treks in Nepal use trekking lodges, aka teahouses. Some are easy Himalayan treks. If the walk involves any camping (like The Starlight Trek), then tents are provided too (carried and erected/dismantled by porters of course), along with a cook, dining tent, tables and chairs.....everything you'd need so that you just enjoy walking.

    Still, if you'd like rest days, or other possibilities added, no problem. Some treks less than a week are ideal for a very short Nepal holiday even. But, they can always be extended to include other activities and perhaps a bit of cultural touring if you only want to do a few days walking.
