Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

Annapurna Machapuchare

This trek offers the opportunity to escape Nepal's tourist trails, to venture into the deep forests and roam the high alpine pastures to the base of the sacred, fluted peak of Machapuchare. The emphasis of this trek is on the forest and wilderness zones, combined with a sense of exploration. We ascend through Hindu villages and pristine forests (magnolia, oak and rhododendron) to the superb alpine campsite at Guhe, for sweeping panoramic views of the Annapurna Range. Forays to the base of Machapuchare provide a further highlight, before a delightful return through Gurung villages to Pokhara.

traveller reviews

It turns out that our trip with you to Nepal was to change our lives in more way than one and we're so excited about getting married and becoming parents as a result of our magical holiday trekking in the Himalayas.
