Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Kathmandu.

You will be greeted on arrival by your driver and privately transferred to a traditional Nepalese hotel.

Get to know Kathmandu on a guided tour.

Spend two nights in the city enjoying exciting day tours. Visit the famous Buddhist shrine, Boudhanath Stupa before moving on to Pashupatinath temple for an afternoon of culture and history. Your private guide will teach you all there is to know about these fascinating landmarks.

Rickshaw Nepal
Visit the famous Monkey Temple.

Also known as Swayambhunath Stupa, this temple is an ancient Buddhist shrine which has incredible, panoramic views of the city. The temple is so beautiful; it is said that the glory of Kathmandu began at this site.

After an action-packed stay in the city, depart for Pokhara.

This is where your trek begins. You will be driven to the starting point and begin your guided trek on arrival. Hike through the lower foothills of Annapurna for three or four hours before arriving at the first lodge.

Pokhara Nepal
Spend six nights trekking through the changing landscape.

The trail passes through small hamlets, terraced rice fields and forests with spectacular views of the surrounding valley. Walk-through forests of oak, rhododendron and silver birch with incredible views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Lamjung.

Hiking Nepal
Finish your trek in the village of Phedi.

From here, you will be collected and transferred back to Pokhara where you can enjoy some time to rest and recuperate. Spend two nights at a relaxing eco-luxury property.

Himalaya Lodge
Immerse yourself in some local culture by visiting a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bhaktapur city is a beautiful culmination of brick roads, charming cottages and an old fashioned way of life that has remained untouched by largescale urbanisation. At its centre, Bhaktapur Durbar Square is home to incredible monuments which reflect the glory days of the Malla Dynasty. Here you will visit Nyatapola Temple, Bhairavnath Temple and the famous Golden Gate.

Bhaktapur Nepal
