Trekking Tours in Nepal
POON HILL, GHOREPANI( 7 Nights/8 Days )

A trek in Nepal is a special and rewarding mountain holiday. Nepal offers some of the most spectacular and beautiful scenery in the world. Little wonder that this country has captured the imagination of mountaineers and explorers for over a hundred years. Though trekking is not mountaineering, but just days of walking, some of the popular trekking trails are used by mountaineering expeditions in their approach to challenging climbs. This country has a monopoly on the world's highest peaks. Eight of the ten highest peaks on earth, all them above 8000 meters, are found in Nepal. All the popular trekking trails bring you close to these famed mountains. At times you are brought so close to these majestic peaks that they just seem an arm's length away, towering over you. While trekking you will absorb the great  diversity of Nepal. Nowhere else in the Himalayas will you find the topographical , cultural and religious diversity which exists in here. The terrain changes from tropical jungle to high glacial peaks in only 150 kilometers (about 100 miles). Moreover, trekking is the only way to know and understand the 40 different ethnic communities of Nepal who zealously guard their colorful rituals and mystic festivities, and who worship the mountains as their guardian deities. As the landscape changes, the people change as does the flora and fauna. While trekking in this land of manifold attractions, each step provides new and intriguing viewpoints. Himalayan Glacier Trekking will see to it that you don't miss any of the thrills offered by Nepal. Dense jungles, wild rivers, exotic cultures and great snow peaks stretching for the sky, are the exciting ingredients that made up this country of unparalleled variety. Over 300 of the world's highest peaks are found among this stunning concentration of ice and snow, including Mount Everest, Known by the Nepalese as Sagamartha Goddess Mother of the World! This glorious combination of peaks and people has attracted many trekkers and a few well known trails are now heavily trekked. Peregrine's routes avoid these trails to take you into wilder, even more magnificent regions that we have discovered and enjoyed. In the high and wild Everest region, we walk with our Sherpas into remote valleys, crossing high passes and glaciers, spending time in beautiful monasteries and enjoying tea with yak herders. Surrounding us are hundreds of peaks over 650m, including the famous-Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Ama Dablan. The enormous peaks of the Annapurnas soar from the subtropics. Lower flanks densely forested with rhododendron, decorated with the little orange houses of the colourful Gurung and Magar tribes people, all topped with a white crown of ice and snow. On the northern slopes, tribes of Tibetan origin add another ingredient to this region of incredible contrast. Similarly the spectacular massifs of Manaslu, Ganesh and Langtang are born from the lover altitudes and offer intoxicating trekking. Seldom- visited villages and unspoilt forests all combine to make these areas some of the most rewarding of all. One of the world's great trekking paradises: after your first visit you will realise that for Nepal once is not enough!

12 DAYS ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP:                                                           Back to the Top
Another new route for peregrine, this trek avoids the heavily trekked trails to the west and skirts under the dramatic pyramid peak of Machapuchare (6993m)  We  concentrate on the delightful Gurung and Brahmin villages in particular Siklis home of many a Gukha soldier enjoying the hauntingly beautiful rhodoendron, oak and bamboo forests, all back dropped by the towering Annapurna Ranges barely 20 kms away. The Annapurnas are famous for their sunsets and our compatriot are carefully chosen to watch this nightly spectacular. This is an excellent introduction to trekking. guaranteed to whet the appetite!
