Throughout the trek, come across isolated mountain communities, each observing different ancestral customs and traditions, resulting in not only a visually superb expedition but also a culturally rich one.
Amid the rugged mountain scenery, meet warm and welcoming locals herding yaks and goats on the grassy pastures. Enjoy the opportunity to visit monasteries and temples.

The trip was surely an amazing experience. The program is well planned and perfectly executed. Nepal has so much to offer and within 10 days we got a taste of the culture, religion, activity (omg the trekking!!), scenery, animal watch, etc. I met many cool people in the trip and we all enjoyed every single minute of it. LOVE IT!!! p.s. there is no other comments here so I put mine here - everyone wants a G Adventures tee. I wanted it since my last G Adventures trip at Mayan Sun. how come it's so hard to get one?Overall Rating

The staff were all fantastic. Our leader was great, going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we had what needed and that we had a great experience. The porters were really friendly, willing to share their music with us, and always had a very positive attitude. The accommodations were exactly what I was expecting. It was nice to have a variety. The tea houses brought us that much closer to the local people, and all the hotels in the cities were very nice.Overall Rating
The tour was well organised and gave us the opportunity to see a great deal in a short space of time.Overall Rating
