Acclimatizing is essential and our itinerary is slightly longer than with most other trekking companies, this has meant almost 100 % of our participants have reached Everest Base Camp (334 approximately) and all have crossed Thorong La on the Annapurna Circuit. Our acclimatizing days are an opportunity to explore the fascinating Sherpa and Tibetan villages. We usually spend the day higher than the accommodation for photographic excursions. Clyde your guide is a Wildlife & Wilderness Photographer. We enjoy carpets of wildflowers in the mountains and some villages have bakeries, clothing and jewellery shops, museums, phone and internet facilities.
The Annapurna Circuit Trek The Manang side of this beautiful trek remains one of the least developed of Nepal s main trekking areas however this is changing. It is a very culturally diverse region and offers stunning scenery. We offer many side excursions on this tour and the photography is outstanding. It now has the best cuisine and accommodation we have enjoyed in Nepal. From Besi Sahaar we offer a 14 day trek through Manang, over the Thorong La to Muktinath and take the more scenic trail to Kagbeni and fly out from Jomsom. We normally visit Pokhara and Chitwan NP. Our oldest participant was 72
