We alternatively plan either a full length pony trek or short trek.

It’s styles are:
A trek can be short, half a day hike to a mountain’s top or a ridge to get a spectacular view. It can be a 3 or 4 days excursion further north for a closer look at the Himalayan giants or it can be a few weeks walk up and down mountain valleys in the shadow of the mighty peaks. Go for it, Go for a trek, Go for half a day, go for a couple of months, but GO!
There are lots of trails. Many of them are old trade or pilgrimage routes, leading through terraced hillsides, forested ridges, or by river banks and paddy fields and connecting picturesque hamlets and mountain villages. The best way to see Nepal and connect with her land people is still via the oldest way of walking on your two feet like our hunter-gatherer ancestors did.
The best months for clear weather, cultural diversity, mountain scenery and plant life are February – April and September- December. As we ascend above 2500 meters (8,000 feet) our bodies must acclimatise to the decreasing amount of oxygen available. Failure to acclimatise can result in Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Rest easy in the knowledge our guide can deal with AMS in any situation, in any weather and at any time.
