You will arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu to be picked up by a transportation service that will be organized by our project partners. In Kathmandu you will be brought to a guesthouse where you will spend the night. In the guesthouse will be accommodated in a double room with an en-suite bathroom that you will share with another participant. On the following day you will get to know Kathmandu on a sightseeing tour that will be organized by our project partners. The afternoon you will spend preparing for your trekking tour: First of all, there will be an equipment check to make sure you start the trek well-prepared. After that you will get to the conservationist, who is going to accompany you and your group during your Himalaya adventure and share his knowledge about nature and environment with you. As part of an evening lecture after the equipment check he will familiarise you with different conservation issues in Nepal, such as the history of conservation and its increasing urgency in the recent years, the flora and fauna of Nepal and the challenges of conservation around those or the issue of climate change and its effect on the natural environment and the people in Nepal.

 

Your trekking tour in the Himalayan region will start on the morning of the third day. With a bus you will go from Kathmandu to Chautara in central Nepal where your tour begins. After your first walk of roughly three hours you will reach your first camp site near the village Sano Okreni. Following a nourishing dinner, a good night’s sleep in your tent and a hearty breakfast you and your group will start your ascending daytrip to Kami Kharka and follow hiking paths that will lead you along houses of local farmers, through old rhododendron and pine forests to your camp site. On the following days you will walk in the morning and the afternoon to even higher altitudes in 4 to 6 hours every day. During your tour you will pass the stations Pauwa Bhanjyang, Hille Bhanjyang as well as Nasim Pati and will be able to immerse yourself in this incredible landscape with its numerous mountains and valleys as well as the extraordinary nature of Nepal. In an altitude of over 4,000m your trekking tour will hit the peak at the amazing setting of Panch Pokhari with its five beautiful lakes– a sacred place for Hindu people. After a refreshing day off in this region, that gives you the opportunity to explore your surroundings, you will start your 2-day-descend to Bhothang. Once you have reached the village, you will take a bus to Kathmandu that will take round about seven hours. After another night in the city, you will start your departure from the international airport.

 

During your trekking tour experienced guides will lead you and project employees will support you with carrying your luggage. Your day will start between 6 and 7am in the morning. After your breakfast you will pack up your equipment and give it to the responsible staff member. Once you had your breakfast (round about two hours after you got up) you will start your morning walk. After a two-hour lunchbreak from 11am to 1pm, you will go on your second walk in the afternoon. The new camp site will be reached at around 4pm every day. Once the camp is set up, you will have time for some coffee or tea, do some washing, spend a few hours with your team or explore your surroundings. Dinner will be ready at around 6 or 7pm. Since a professional conservationist is going to accompany you and your group your trekking tour is of special educational nature: During your daily hikes you regularly get the opportunity to broaden your knowledge about Nepal’s nature and to learn more about the country’s flora and fauna as well as conservation issues being of great importance for Nepal.

Everybody interested in a Wilderness Experience abroad should be able to adjust to entirely unfamiliar standards of living in their future host country. Therefore, we would like to point out the importance of being flexible and adaptable regarding the accommodation and sanitary facilities provided by the project. Those are very basic and – depending on the project – cannot be compared to European standards. The equipment and furnishings are limited to a minimum; air conditioning is not available. Depending on your host country occasional power blackouts or water outages are quite common. Please contact us if you have further questions about your accommodation. We are pleased to provide you with comprehensive information since we would like you to feel entirely prepared for your time abroad.
