“Excelence trek with the organization of Rajendra, we did the Sundarihal-Chisapani-Nargakot- Dhulikhel track and everything was perfect. Thanks especially to Raj and our guide Sudon who both were taking care of us during all the days.”

“I have been on two wonderful month-long treks with Adventure Thirdpole: Around Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp. Both treks went as well as I could imagine, with no glitches, excellent guides and porters, and every detail anticipated in advance.
The Annapurna Circuit trek is amazing: you start out trekking in rice-growing, subtropical terrain up the Marsyangda river valley, and in a matter of a few days, trek through temperate, cold and subarctic climate zones to the Thurong La pass at almost 18,000'. You then descend via the Kali Gandaki river valley, the deepest river valley in the world. Every day is different with interesting villages, people, religious monasteries and shrines, mountains and wildlife. I have spent almost 4 months in Nepal, and my very favorite place is the "High Route" via Gyaru and Ngawal villages from Pisang to Manang, which offers breathtaking views into the Grande Barriere of the Annapurna massif.
Although roads are beginning to intrude into the classic AC trek, they can be avoided where desired, and utilized where wanted.
The Everest Base Camp trek begins with an interesting and exciting (!) flight into the airport at Lukla, then trekking up to Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Khumbu region, where you spend an extra day acclimatizing before ascending up through arguably the most stunning mountain views in the world! The mountain scenery there is indescribable, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring! Staying at ever-higher villages - Tengboche, Dengboche, and on up in 5-7 days to Gorak Shep at 17,000. A short trip up Kala Patthar offers one of the best possible views of Mt. Everest. Then you do the return trip, again thru the most breathtaking scenery the world has to offer.”
