Itinerary Information

Nepal does not resume itself to the Annapurna circuit or the Everest Base camp.

Ever thought about exploring the West of Nepal ? It is so rarely trekked upon, you will have no choice but to immerse yourself in the culture, traditions and landscapes.

This trek, accessible for all, will transport you to another century.

You will take a small plane overlooking Southern Nepal, Terai , and the Tibetan border, the Himalayas.

Simikot is populated by Buddhists and Hindus, here, arrive all the caravans from the South and the North from Tibet.

All goods that come by car are unloaded and put on mules and strong little fluffy goats. The mules carry the heavy loads, the goats carry soaps, cigarettes  and other daily commodities.

The trail follows the Karnali river’s tranquil waters.

Pine forests, tibetain villages and high altitude mountain passes you will walk in lands where people still live in autarky.

The splendid Rara lake surrounded by a connifer forest, further away we can see the snowy peaks.
