Namaste Trek – 6 Days

Trip Overview

This superb, easy-paced trekking holiday has been recently refined and extended and provides the perfect introduction to the foothills of the Nepal Himalaya. We start out from Kathmandu, before heading on to Nepal’s second city, Pokhara. Three days of trekking then take us to some of the prettiest villages in the valley of the Modi Khola, on the south side of the Annapurnas. Staying in local lodges, also known as tea houses, these are accomodations which are simple, but clean & comfortable, with twin-share rooms. We will be able to enjoy some of the most picturesque landscapes in Nepal.

Lush, green farmland, terraced fields, tumbling streams, smiling villagers and the backdrop of some of the world’s great peaks, including Annapurna 1 and the stunning ‘Fish Tail’ peak of Machhapuchhre. Walking through rhododendron forest, with tree orchids, magnificent magnolias and several species of monkey, we will stay each night at a different lodge, each with its own particular charm and outstanding views. Returning to Pokhara, we spend a night at a very comfortable resort hotel, before making the drive back to Kathmandu.
