Is this trek for you?
Nepal are relatively easy, following well-paved paths and local village trails
throughout. The maximum altitude reached on the trip is less than 5416 meters.
By Himalayan standards this is fairly modest elevation and the altitude issues
experienced on higher elevation trek should not be of concern to us on this
trek. However, it should be noted that cycling at altitudes above 3000 meters
requires greater demands on the body than walking at lower elevations, and is
itself challenging even for fit hikers. Our itinerary is well staged and
provides for a very gradual approach to the higher elevations encountered in
the Annapurna Circuit. Camping is not required on this trip and we stay each
night in well-appointed lodges with basic facilities. The trekking element of
this trip is not long or sustained, however you will need to ensure you are
physically prepared for the trek and you should be comfortable with walking for
5 to 7 hours each day. This trekking holiday should be well within the
capabilities of all active hikers and hill-walkers.
