Our grading system explained
- Expedition Grade
Whilst the attractive tea house trails of Everest and Annapurna are rightly popular, step off-the-beaten-track and you will discover another world altogether; pristine mountain scenery, little-visited villages and a culture still relatively untouched by tourism. Limiting access through special permits has helped preserve some of these far flung regions whilst others are ‘wild’ by their very remoteness.
Due to its proximity to the Tibetan border, Langtang has a dramatic desert landscape like no other in Nepal. It also remains culturally distinct with a strong Tibetan Buddhist influence in its customs, dress and festivities. A thorough exploration of this region is possible on our Mustang & the Kingdom of Lo trek. By way of contrast, venture a little further into the wilds and you will discover the beautiful turquoise lakes and soaring snow-capped mountains of Dolpo. Explore both these stunning regions on our Dolpo to the Kingdom of Mustang trek or trek into mystical Upper Dolpo to reach the isolated monastery of Shey Gompa on our Snow Leopard Trek.
Tibetan culture is also evident in the attractive villages dotted around the trails of Manaslu - no more so than in the ‘hidden’ Tsum Valley where the way of life has been preserved for hundreds of year. You can explore this wild and distant region, and circuit the world’s eighth highest mountain, on our classic Manaslu Circuit Trek. Another fine trek in the heart of Wild Nepal is that to the North and South Base Camps of Kangchenjunga. This spectacular and challenging trek in transports you through wonderfully diverse landscapes into some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the whole of Nepal.
Aside from tea houses on some of the trails, camping is the only accommodation option in the wilds of Nepal. Our first rate camping service means that you’ll still have some home comforts with tables and chairs for dining, hearty food and good-sized sleeping tents. You’ll be well looked after by your trek staff your gear will be fully portered. You’ll camp in some amazing places with incredible views and the only sounds you’ll hear are those of gentle running water and the call of birds.
If you’re looking for a true taste of adventure, amidst some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, then Wild Nepal is the place to go.View our holidays here
