We invite you to join us on our adventure, from mountain people's homes to the shrines of a sacred glacier lake.
The Annapurna region of Nepal is a land so beautiful, it has long been the ultimate trekking dream for hikers. Here, the sacred peaks of Annapurna, Machapuchare and Dhaulagiri, shining with snow year round, tower over ancient rhododendron forests, icy rivers and temperate jungles where tigers still roam. Plenty of trekkers come here for all this beauty – but few stray off the tourist routes. This trek will take you to off-the-beaten-track villages, where you will stay in village communities, sometimes even in people's homes, giving you firsthand experience of the real Nepal. Along the way we can visit a village weaving workshop, paper making workshop and cheese making factory. We will spend a night at a yak farming project on the flanks of Annapurna range.
The high point of this trek (quite literally), is a visit to the sacred Khayer Lake (4,500m) surrounded with shrines and the peak of Annapurna towering above.
This is a trek for those with a real sense of adventure, who are happy to embrace basic living conditions in order to experience rural, mountain people’s life in Nepal.
This quest is led by experts in outdoor education, cultural heritage and religious studies, with years of experience in outdoor leadership, the study of comparative religions of South Asia, as well as working in the remote areas of Himalayan countries, such as Nepal and Tibet.
This trek can be qualified as moderate, with occasional strenuous days and thus a reasonable level of fitness is required.
