Mt. Annapurna Expedition

Mt. Annapurna 8,091m derived from a Sanskrit word which when broken down, would mean, "Sustenance" and "filled with". So the name would translate into "The Goddess rich in Sustenance" or simply "The Provider". It was first climbed by French expedition (M. Herzog & L. Lachenal) in 1950.

A french expedition led by Maurice Herzog explored the kali Gandaki valley in 1950. After deciding that Dhaulagiri was too difficult, they turned there attention to climbing Annapurna.There are four summits called Annapurna; the entire massif forms a barrier on the northern side of the pokhara Valley. The main summit stands to the west of the Annapurna Sanctuary. Fewer climbers have reached the summit of Annapurna than any other 8,000m peak in Nepal

Mt. Cho Oyu Expedition

Cho Oyu, first attempted by the Austrian team of mountaineers via Tibet route in 1954, has only been gaining popularity since recently. Cho Oyu (8201 meters), the sixth highest mountain in the world is one of the easiest to climb among the other 8,000 meter high mountains. The south face of Cho Oyu, facing Nepal is steep and challenging, hence it’s rarely attempted. While, the north side of the mountain from Tibet side is relatively moderate, and has a safe route to the mountain as well. As a result, most of the Cho Oyu expedition is made via Tibet side due to the easier access and technique as discussed earlier.

Classic Everest Trek

The Classic Everest Trek promises to be one of the most memorable journeys that you have ever undertaken, a journey that will be etched in your mind for a long time to come. This trek takes you to the heart of Sherpa land as well as the heart of Himalaya. You will also get to visit the Tengboche monastery perched high atop a saddle. The mountain views from here are simply breathtaking. You might also get a glimpse of a musk deer or two around this area. You will be passing through clusters of villages inhabited by the Sherpas whose welcoming smile and hospitable demeanor make your trip all the more enjoyable.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2017

Around Dhaulagiri

The Dhaulagiri region, separated from the Annapurna region by the Kali Gandaki gorge (the deepest in the world), is home to some 15 peaks above 7,000 m in height. Coined from the Sanskrit word dhavala giri, meaning “White Mountain”, the main peak of Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), the sixth highest in the world, is one of the major highlights of this trek. Meant for the more adventurous, this trip circles the shining snow covered peak. 

The Dhaulagiri region is rarely visited and the valleys and villages surrounding it are untouched and, therefore, unspoiled. Our trek takes us across the Kali Gandaki River and then north into the heart of the Dhaulagiri massif. Excellent views of the Dhaulagiri range can be had on this trek. The hidden valley (after crossing the French cole (5,360 m), which is the highest point of the trek) gives you a heavenly taste of the world of snow. 

The Dhampus Pass between Tukuche peak and Thapa peak is another superb heaven that we will be passing through en route to Yak Kharka then onward to Jomsom. From here, we fly back to Kathmandu via Pokhara. Trekking in this area is relatively strenuous and needs some basic mountaineering knowledge. As lodges are far and few in between, we will be spending our nights in tents during the trek.

Plan your next holiday in Nepal

Everest Luxury Trek, 13 Days

A luxury trek is similar to a lodge trek except in that you have the choice of spending the nights in relatively luxurious hotels compared to lodges. These hotels have well appointed rooms with attached bathrooms, hot and cold running showers and hygienically prepared gastronomic delights. 

Cho-Oyu operates one such hotel, Hotel Sherpaland, at Namche Bazar, a bustling little mountain town that represents the heart of the Khumbu region. This type of trek offers something different from regular camping and lodge treks in that you not only get to trek in comfort and style, but also enjoy other “benefits” like being swooped off on a helicopter for a mountain flight right in the middle of the trek, a ride on the back of a horse or yak, which gives you the opportunity to take in the scenic beauty of the mountains and the surroundings without feeling tired and having to concentrate more on putting one foot in front of the other, receiving blessings from a high Buddhist monk in a private Lakhang or chapel and witnessing typical Sherpa culture and tradition through their songs and dance. 

This type of trek is for those who love to be pampered and indulged right in the heart of high country. You can undertake a luxury trek only in the Khumbu Valley.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

This trek is suitable for beginners or for those who have limited time but still want a real Himalayan experience. The trek starts from Naya Pul (New Bridge), an hour’s drive from Pokhara. The trail winds through beautiful rhododendron forest, which inspired the setting for “The Hobbit Triology”. 

We will also be passing through the fascinating traditional Gurung village of Ghandruk, home of the valiant Gurkha soldiers. Ghandruk provides us a good opportunity to witness the culture and tradition of rural Nepal. At Ghorepani, the trail meets a major trade route, which is plied by mule trains ferrying goods north toward Tibet. Along the way, there are spectacular views of the snowy peaks of the Annapurna range, capped off by the dramatic and unforgettable and mountain scenery at sunrise from Poon Hill.

Makalu Basecamp Trek

Makalu-Barun National Park in eastern Nepal virgin territory that is almost uninhabited. This remote terrain is situated east of the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park between the high and desolate Tibetan plateau and the deep gorge carved by the Arun River that lies in the subtropical belt.
