Short Description

This trek travels around the Annapurna massif, visiting the Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya and the dramatic Kali Gandaki Gorge. Much of the trek is through lowland country, but there is one high pass, Thorung La. With bad weather, the pass can be difficult, and this is still a long trek at high elevation. The change of scenery at the top of Thorung Pass and the remains around the sacred area of Muktinath are extremely interesting. The many hotels and teahouses along the course make camping equipment unnecessary.

We have also combined this trip with Ghale Gaon. A unique experience of Nepalese Culture and lifestyle, Ghale Gaon is home to Ghales, the famed Gurungs, the legendary mid-hill people of western Nepal. Travellers say, “They come to Nepal for the mountains, but return for the people.” Besides the extravaganza of the peaks, the warm and sincere hospitality of the Gurung, Manangi and Thakali people along the way is bound to captivate and touch you

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Everything was planned as I thought it would be - first class and top of the line. The hotel employees were great. Kumar, my guide in the mountains, and Kanchan, my guide in Kathmandu, knew the areas they took me to thoroughly. It was a great trip and I am glad I booked it through Myths and Mountains.

Everyone I dealt with at Myths & Mountains put my mind at ease and was extremely helpful from start to finish. I had never used a tour operator before, and was concerned that I would get a cookie-cutter experience. The opposite was true. Everything was personalized so well that I felt like I was getting a totally unique travel experience. In Bhutan, our guide and our driver were wonderful and made us feel immediately like part of their families. They were warm, open, engaging and would have given us the shirts off their backs. We now feel as if we have friends for life, and we will forever look back warmly upon our time in Bhutan. In fact, we can't wait to go back, and when we do we will absolutely go with Myths and Mountains to set it up.

We have many great memories from our trip to Bhutan. Toni designed an ideal itinerary for us. Toni and Jen were exceptionally responsive - every email was responded to right away. Taking the helicopter to Mt. Everest (which we added on while on the trip) was also a life changing experience. Very memorable. Very special. Hiking to the Tiger's Nest Monastery was a once in a life experience."

The mandala making experience (Bhutan), Buddha Park (Bhutan), the entire stay in Punakha and Dhumra Farm (Bhutan); sunrise at Swayambunath (Kathmandu) and the Back Street Food tasting tour (Kathmandu); and the village hike in Pokhara (as well as the Fishtail Lodge) are all experiences that stand out in my mind.

The houseboat trip on the Kerala backwaters was a highlight of our trip to India. It was the most relaxing day of my life - just beautiful! The boat staff was excellent and the food was amazing. Myths and Mountains staff were outstanding - always very responsive, quick, on-point and helpful. I promise you, anyone who asks me about my travels, you will get a glowing recommendation.
