  • Itinerary

    Day - 1

    Location: Kathmandu - Oh hello Kathmandu. The adventure kicks off with a welcome meeting at 6 pm where you'll meet your tour guide and new travel pals. Look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place.If you arrive early, there's plenty to do in this vibrant city. Kathmandu’s most important Buddhist shrine, Swayambhunath Stupa and the nearby ‘City of Devotees’ Bhaktapur are well worth a visit. For some more structure, there are a number of Urban Adventures day tours that can help you delve deeper into Kathmandu's ancient architecture and rich cultural heritage. After the important meeting, why not have an optional dinner together. It's hard to go wrong with a nourishing bowl of dal bhat (thick lentil or bean soup).

     

    Day - 2

    Location: Trisuli River - Enjoy a morning drive over the rim of the Kathmandu Valley and soak up the views of the Ganesh and Lantang ranges. Arrive in either Baireni or Galaudi, for some rafting on the Trisuli River. Hit the water and enjoy the thrill of the rapids aptly named Ladies Delight, Rock Garden and Snell's Nose. Camp on the beach and enjoy dinner under the stars.

     

    Day - 3

    Location: Trisuli River - Pokhara - Have more fun on the river including negotiating the Monsoon and Upset. Late morning we end rafting at Kurintar and enjoy a light lunch and drive to Pokhara (4 hours). Arrive Pokhara in the afternoon. Chill out at the lakeside cafes.

     

    Day - 4

    Location: Ghandruk (1950m / 6397ft) - Today we drive from Pokhara to Nayapul, takes around 1 hour. Hope you broke in your boots before the trip, cos this is where the trekking bit starts. There’s a dirt track leading to Birethanti and Shyauli villages. There’s a stone staircase up to Kimche, where you’ll stop for lunch. Then a bunch of stone flags lead you through fields of wheat to Ghandruk. It's all mostly uphill today. That’s some diverse terrain right there. Total trekking time is approx. 5 hours. Stay in your first Nepalese teahouse tonight.

     

    Day - 5

    Location: Tolkha (1700m / 5577ft) - Look east. That’s Landruk, the next village on the route.  Look down. That’s the Modi Kola River 600 metres below. Look around the corner. That’s Tolkha, your base for the night. What, you can’t look around corners? Ok, you’ll just have to trek there instead. Begin with a mountain view for breakfast, then start the trek towards Tolkha. It takes about 2 hours mostly descending and then its time for an ascent of around 3 hours to our next teahouse stay.

     

    Day - 6

    Location: Hemjakot (1530m / 5019ft) - Rhododendron is a tricky word to spell, but super pretty to look at. You’ll see a bunch of these bright pink and purple plants today. Do you know what you won’t see much of? Other people. We’ve picked a pretty remote trail from Dhampus to Hemjakot, and tonight you get to stay with a local family. The first 2 hours are mostly uphill and then its mostly downhill from there for a total of around 6 hours. Pack your best smile and get an even bigger one in return.

     

    Day - 7

    Location: Pokhara - It's a short descent of around 3 hours to Phedi before catching the public bus to Pokhara in time for lunch (approx 40 mins). Enjoy free time in the afternoon to do all the things you didn’t do the first time round. We can highly recommend taking a rowboat (doonga) out on Phewa Lake. If there’s blue skies you’ll have mountain views for miles. If it’s cloudy just use your imagination. Maybe kick back in a lakeside cafe with some momos (local dumplings).

     

    Day - 8

    Location: Kathmandu - It’s a long bus back to Kathmandu so bring snacks. Once you’ve arrived back into Kathmandu (approx 3 pm) there’s time to sip on a banana lassi and wish you didn’t have to go home. No accommodation is included tonight and you are free to depart any time after our arrival back in Kathmandu.
