Everest Inn is a chain of lodges along the Everest trail dedicated to providing a high level of Nepalese hospitality in a hygienic and neat environment to the trekkers at a very competitive price. Everest Inn runs four lodges in Lukla, Phakding, Namche and Pheriche and three other lodges in Devoche, Lobuche and Gorakshep provide the similar services under the Everest Inn Partner status.
Everest Base Camp has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in 1953. To reach this part of the Himalaya within a limited time, we have devised this two-week trek to Everest Base Camp which runs directly to and from Lukla.
The Everest Base Camp trek, a very well known mountain trek, starts at the upper Phakding and follows the Dudh Koshi valley which climbs up to the Sherpa capital of Namche, a bustling bazaar that's a junction for trekkers, the local Sherpa and expeditions en route to the mighty Mt. Everest. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia, and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it the kind of walk you will remember for a long, long time. On the cliffs above the river, it is possible to spot musk deer and the Himalayan Thar. From Namche, we trek along a high traversing path where we have our first good views of Everest and then head towards Thyangboche Monastery, which is about 4 hours climb. The monastery sits at 3867m in a clearing surrounded by dwarf firs and rhododendrons. The monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. The view from this spot, seen to best advantage in the morning, is absolutely mesmerizing and stunning and is rightly deemed to be one of the most magnificent in the world.
We then descend to the Imja Khola and continue to the villages of Pangboche and Pheriche before finally approaching the Khumbu Glacier. We then follow the glacier, first to Lobuche, a vantage point for some spectacular views of the Ama Dablam, Taweche, and other peaks and then hike to Gorakshep for a breather. We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants which literally numb your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye, and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south-west face of the colossal Mt. Everest.
We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu Ice Fall before finally making our way back down to Lukla.
The ‘Upper Mustang’, popularly identified as the Last Forbidden Kingdom, lies immediately north of the main Himalayan range of Nepal at the average altitude of 4000m. This sacred terrain situated in the rain shadow of Dhaulagiri occupies the northern two-thirds of Mustang district of Dhaulagiri zone. Starting from Kaagbeni (south), this desolate valley in the Trans-Himalayan area extends till the Tibetan border (north). It’s ironical that the name given to this arid region beyond the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massif is ‘Mustang’, the literal meaning of which is “Fertile Land”. This former Kingdom of Lo sharing a part of Tibetan plateau was made accessible to tourists only since the year 1992. Upper Mustang is also known as the capital of the former Kingdom of Lo Manthang.
The Upper Mustang trek allows you to experience the arid and dry desert-like landscape, weather-beaten cliffs, colorful rocks, moraine valley, deep gorges, snow-crested peaks, glaciers, alpine valleys, barren ridges and century old cave residing higher up in the rocks. This Upper Mustang hike also renders an opportunity to experience the grand view of Annapurna, Nilgiri, and Dhaulagiri while standing on the various passes en route that ranges from 3000m to 4000m. This steep, rocky Upper Mustang trekking trail is also said to have been one of the major trade routes, used by salt caravans while crossing the Himalayas between Tibet and Nepal. Moreover, planning Upper Mustang walk also offers a one time opportunity to spot fortresses, palaces and cave hermitages, the scenery of the Tibetan plateau and Kali Gandaki, the deepest gorge in the world.
Nevertheless, this trip to Upper Mustang not only offers geographical beauty but also introduces you to the old Buddhist Kingdom of Mustang called Lo where people still follow Tibetan Buddhism and pure Tibetan Buddhist culture, language and architectures that have remained unchanged since the 14th century. You can spot Tibetan style village comprising of whitewashed houses tucked with firewood on the roof. You will also be greeted with a number of colorful village monasteries (Lo Gekar monastery built in the 8th century by famous Tibetan magician Guru Rinpoche and Thungchen Gompa built in the 15th century) and other ancient palaces along with the primordial society that has remained unaffected by transformation for centuries. If you are lucky, a visit to the royal palace situated in the city square of Lo Manthang offers exceptional opportunity to meet Lo Manthang’s former King, Jigme Dorjee Palbar Bista, who lost his title in 2008 after Nepal became a republic nation, and his family that is still highly respected by locals.
Another interesting thing about the trek to Upper Mustang is the opportunity to get closer to the tradition and culture of people belonging to Thakali and Gurung communities. Warm hospitality is one of the reasons why trekkers prefer to plan their next trip to Upper Mustang.
Max Elevation : 3806m.
Trip Route: Kathmandu-Pokhara-Jomsom-Lomanthang-Jomsom-Pokhara-Kathmandu.
Annapurna Circuit Trek, a horseshoe-shaped, classic trek in the Annapurna Range in central Nepal, is considered as one of the supreme treks in the world. The year 1977 marks the inauguration of this trek to the foreign trekking enthusiasts. Also known as Annapurna round trek, the Annapurna Circuit trekking encircles Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, and Annapurna IV while making its way through two different river valleys - Marshyangdi river valley and Kali Gandaki river valley (deepest gorge of the world). This 128 mile Annapurna Circuit walk goes all the way through two zones (Gandaki and Dhaulagiri) and four districts (Lamjung, Manang, Mustang, and Myagdi) of Nepal. The trail takes you to the elevation of 5400m on the Thorong La pass, touching the periphery of the Tibetan highland.
This Annapurna Circuit hike follows counter-clockwise direction, giving you an opportunity to enjoy the splendid scenery of Annapurna massif along with Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, Langtang Himal, Manaslu, Gangapurna and Tilicho peak alongside the trail. The route also goes through the world’s deepest George.
Moreover, this single trail offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy varied climatic zone (Tropic at 600m to the Arctic at 5,416m) along with four different landscapes that are, tropical forest in Beshisahar, terminal moraine near Manang, and snow line across the Thorung La and the barren land of lower Mustang and Muktinath. This variation in the landscape allows you to observe the striking view of several waterfalls, gigantic cliffs, sub-tropical forest, and beautiful settlements. You can also spot the distinct regional scenery of rivers, colorful flora and a wide variety of fauna.
Apart from the natural beauty, a trip to Annapurna also offers a wonderful break where you can observe more than 10 different groups of culturally rich tribal groups some of which are Gurung, Thakali and Manangi. Lamjung and Myagdi, that lies in the sub-tropical region offer the views of hamlets and terraced farming. Most of the people here are Hindu. However, Manang and Mustang situated in higher elevation give you the ideas of Tibetan Buddhists, Tibetan culture and the lifestyle of the Manang valley and lower Mustang. Most of the people residing in Manang are the Gurungs. Moreover, you can also enjoy Bonpo religion in the villages, like thin and Lurpa near Jomsom and Nargon near Kobang. The trek also goes through a famous Hindu and Buddhist holy site ‘Muktinath’ as well as Braga- one of the oldest monasteries in the region.
Moreover, the trail also gives you the opportunity to enjoy two hot springs, one at Chame and the other one at Tatopani where you can relax your tired muscles. If you are interested, you can also take a dip in the cold pools (Kunds in local language), namely Saraswati and Laxmi, or enjoy bathing in sacred water that is poured through 108 bull-faced pipes within the premises of Muktinath Temple. Or you can simply observe the view of Buddhist and Hindu devotees offering prayers and gratitude in their own ways. Jwala Mai, a temple slightly below the temple of Muktinath also offers a surprising view of fire-flame created by natural gas from water, rock, and soil.
Therefore, this circuit trek to Annapurna can be taken as a complete package that includes an amalgam of scenic beauty, climatic variation and rich ethnic culture, settlement, lifestyle, and tradition of the people residing in this region of Nepal.
