General information

There is no doubt: the best way to visit Nepal is on foot, with its networks of trails formed over centuries by porters, locals, and mountaineers. There lies a happy place, wandering from teahouse to teahouse, taking in the breathtaking beauty of 8000m peaks and the silence of a crystal clear sky.

If you have ever longed to walk in the shadows of the most magnificent mountains on Earth to finally see the top of the world from a stone’s throw away, this is the trek.
