Highlights
  • Uncrowded trails among the impressive peaks of the himalayas
  • Trek upwards through differing ecosystems
  • Marvel at rhododendron and larch forests
  • Visit small villages and monasteries

There's nothing quite like the hiking challenge presented by the Himalayas — are you ready to conquer it? More than just Everest Base Camp, this trek in the Kathmandu Valley is one that gives people a different perspective on the valleys and peaks of Nepal. Hike up through an ever-changing landscape of flower-filled fields and lush green forests before emerging among monasteries and villages. As a reward, take in the impressive sight of the Langtang Glacier and stay in rustic villages and monasteries. If you're longing to get off the overcrowded path from Base Camp, this unique hike is the perfect solution.

After being in Nepal when the earthquake hit I could not have asked for a better guide, Dawa. With lack of phone signal to contact managers of G, Dawa was very calm and reassuring. December 2015

Interesting! Never been experienced an earthquake before! Although very scary, I felt very in good hands with an experienced tour guide

Two primary reasons: 1) I love the idea of pairing travel with gaining knowledge about and being able to support local project(s) - in this case the Sisterhood of Survivors, Nepal. 2) The great care, organization and dedication of the CEO, the driver and the driver's assistant on this trip was bar none the best, especially in the aftermath of the earthquake during our trip. Anyone can organize a good tour, but the greatness of a tour company and its staff is reflected during unexpected emergencies. In our case, they showed extreme calmness, care and dedication in light of the ongoing events: earthquake, rock slides, ongoing aftershocks, power outages, limited communication via internet and phone etc. December 2015

I was impressed with the tour, the sights, the humanitarian aspect of G Adventures, but I was most especially impressed by BK our CEO who's calm and collected nature and tremendous organizational and communication skills kept our tour on track, even throughout the earthquake and post-earthquake days.

The tour was so well organised, everything ran so smoothly. Our guide BK was absolutely brilliant, so patient and provided us with so much information about local cultures and customs. BK was so patient, and loads of fun... Definately the best tour guide out! When my hubby and I became sick from the altitude he was so caring, so full of advice, and helped us down to a lower altitude with a Sherpa, constantly checking on us and making sure we were okay. By the end of the tour he was one of us, a friend that we've made. Thank you for the best trip ever BK! December 2015

Travelling with G Adventures was the best possible way I could have seen Nepal. They took me to the best places to see in Kathmandu, as well as providing a fun, knowledgeable and safe tour up the mountains. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is interested in a serious hike.

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Standard hotel (4 nts), community homestay (1 nt), tea house (9 nts).
A tea house is the combination of guest house, restaurant, and social hang out. Private rooms are available in most tea houses, except for high altitudes ones where it will be just dormitories. The lodges are fairly basic. The rooms are sparse with twin beds and very little additional furniture. Blankets are generally provided. Most bathrooms are shared and toilets can be either squat type or western style. Most tea houses have running water. The majority of tea houses only have cold showers, a few may have hot water available at an additional cost. However, we discourage our groups from using water heated by wood, as lack of firewood in villages is a big environmental concern in Nepal. There is a large dining room-cum-lounge, warmed by the bukhara stove (an iron cylinder, fitted with a chimney duct, in which a log fire is lighted). There is normally no electric lighting in the rooms unless the village has hydroelectric power. The dining room usually has solar lighting. Some tea houses now also have electricity for charging small appliances - mobile phones and cameras - and there may be a small charge for this. During a tea house trek you will usually have breakfast and dinner at the tea house, lunch will be eaten at one of the trail side restaurants. Every tea house serves the traditional Nepali meal Dal Bhat (rice and lentils), as well as a variety of different food items, such as rice, vegetables, noodles, potatoes and soup. Some have Nepali versions of western food such as pizza, pasta and french fries. Soft drinks, snacks and beer are available in most of the tea houses and trail side restaurants. And, of course, Nepali milk tea is served everywhere. All tea houses have boiled water for trekkers. We discourage the purchase of bottled water while on the trail. The plastic bottles are difficult to dispose off and have become an environmental problem.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
