Join professional guide Marielle Sengers on this specially designed trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal which takes in both the Annapurna Sanctuary, the Annapurna Base Camp and spends a night high up on the Kopra Ridge. On this trip we combine 14 days of actually being on the trail, trekking through the magnificent Annapurna foothills getting closer and closer to the peaks, with 3 nights in the quiet, picturesque lakeside town of Pokhara and 4 nights in the bustling, medieval city of Kathmandu.
We have deliberately chosen this time of year to, hopefully, be there when the spring flowers on the massive Rhododendron trees blossom. No guarantees though. These forests have to be seen to be believe, ancient, gnarled trees covered in green moss and lichens and stretching up to the sky providing us with glimpses of white peaks getting closer but still distant.
We will climb out of the forest on to the exposed Kopra Ridge where we can see eagles soaring along the ridge in the thermals of the evening. We will climb a little higher to visit the glacial lakes above our lodge right underneath the massive face of Annapurna South.
We spend a couple of nights in the relaxing lakeside resort of Pokhara, strolling along shoreline, shopping in the many local boutiques and enjoying the excellent local food.
This trip has all the things you don’t want to miss in Nepal.
