Journey Highlights
  • Experience the beautiful mountain scenery in the Annapurna Region without the intensity of Everest Base Camp 
  • Guided by actual locals who are trained mountaineering tour guides, you’re sure to get the real Nepali experience. Don’t worry – they are proficient in speaking English but will love to teach you a Nepali phrase or two. 
  • Embrace the local life, by spending lots of time staying over at the tea lodges in each mountain village. Take advantage of sampling out the traditional food and catch up with fellow trekkers you meet along the way.

Wondering if this Journey is right for you?

If you are looking to immerse yourself in Nepali culture but also fancy a bit of a challenge, then this is the trip for you. Spending 8 days trekking the beautiful regions of Annapurna, adorned with endless mountainscapes, luscious forests, secret waterfalls and hidden valleys, this trip does require an adequate level of fitness but is certainly a great introduction for travelers interested in mountaineering. Who says you need to go to Everest to truly understand Nepal when you can still do Annapurna and catch way more idyllic scenery but without the extra intensity?

Chrissie Gomez

Born in London with Filipino parents, Chrissie is no stranger from identifying with two cultures and takes pride in being part of both worlds. As a child, she would once a year travel with her parents and younger sister to the Philippines to visit her extended family.
The idea of travelling never scared her, rather it fascinated her to explore different cultures first hand and embrace new customs.

Chrissie’s bold decision-making when travelling hasn’t always worked in her favour. Many times she had been presented with tough challenges and risky experiences. However she has always identified with them as important life lessons and essential knowledge to bestow upon future travellers when their time comes!
