Highlights

Spend 14 days trekking the majestic Annapurna Range in comfort and luxury

Explore the majestic mountains of the Annapurna range in the Himalayas, even if you aren’t a highly experienced trekker.

Learn more about the history and culture of Nepal, both in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara, and in tiny, remote mountain villages.

Raft gently down the Seti River and see the countryside from a new perspective, then stay in a unique, safari-style river camp.

Spend each night along your trek in a luxury trekking lodge that provides you with electricity, hot showers in a private en suite bathroom, comfortable beds and linens, and excellent service.

This Annapurna Luxury Lodges trek is perfect for anyone who desires to experience the grandeur of hiking in the Himalayas in Nepal without giving up too many luxuries. This trip is also good for guests who don’t want extreme altitudes or strenuous trekking conditions.

This trek is a wonderful introduction to the Annapurna region, offering you incredible views of the Annapurna mountain range and famous peaks such as Annapurna I, Gangapurna, and Machhapuchhre, without going above 2,000 m in elevation.

The level of difficulty is moderate, and the trek is broken up with relaxing rest days in beautiful locations. You’ll also enjoy the opportunity to raft down the Seti River, gently exploring the countryside from a unique perspective. The experience is also enriched with opportunities to explore the history and culture of Nepal. Visit famous temples and cultural heritage sites in Kathmandu, and contrast these experiences with the small, remote villages you’ll encounter in the mountains.

You’ll have access to hot water and showers in your private en suite bathroom. You can expect electricity and often Wi-Fi access, as well as excellent service from staff who pay attention to small details that help make you more comfortable.

A headlamp with extra batteries is also recommended. You will carry your own daypack (30 L recommended) during the day and your baggage on the trek is limited to 12 kg. You should also have dry bags, a padlock (to lock your trek bag) and a basic first aid kid.

Plan to have cash exchanged into Nepali rupees. It is possible to withdraw rupees from ATMs in Kathmandu but not outside the city.

Guides and porters appreciate your tips, and this forms a large portion of their compensation.
