  • Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal

    Kathmandu (1,300m /4,265 ft)

    See for yourself if all that you have read and watched on the internet, about the tranquil beauty of Nepal and warm hospitality of Nepalese. After flying through the beautiful view of this trekkers’ paradise, you will meet our company representative at the airport. You must have an impatient heart for a breathtaking adventure. Get ready to experience Nepal up close and personal. But first, we will transfer you to your hotel.

    If you have an early arrival, you may stroll around the hippest and happening area in Thamel, where you can find restaurants with varieties of cuisine to dine. This first night in the country, you will be staying in Kathmandu.

    Have a well-rested night at Kathmandu before heading off to the mountains. (You can dump the stuff you do not want during the trek at the hotel or our office store.)

  • Day 02: Fly to Pokhara and drive to Beni Bazar

    Pokhara: (1,400m/ 4,593 ft) Beni: (899m/ 2,949 ft)

    Before initiating any journey a wanderlust fills up the vacant space of a traveler questioning everything he/she sees. The flight duration from Kathmandu to Pokhara will take roughly 30 minutes.

    We will be heading west from Pokhara to Beni. It will take approximately 5-6 hours via Prithivi Highway. The two-lane highway up to Mugling will be relatively congested, however, after crossing Mugling the number of vehicles will be less. Nepal’s major tourist hub Pokhara lies just 200 kilometers, and the last stop for today will be Beni, Myadgi.

    More or less, the drive itself is a traveling experience in which the motels, rivers, bridges and frequently passing major towns come by along the mid-hill highway. The transportation infrastructure of Nepal is gradually ascending so, in some sections we want to expect bumpy roads as well.

  • Day 03: Trek to Banskharka to Nagi Village

    Beni: (899m/ 2,949 ft) Banskharka(1,526m/ 5,006 ft) Nagi Village (2,230m/ 7,316 ft)

    Beni is a small town which is situated at the Watersmeet of the Kali Gandaki River and Myagdi River. After having a nutritious breakfast at the hotel, we will get into a jeep and head towards Galeshwor Temple (Lord Shiva Temple). It will roughly take half an hour.

    So, here begins our trek, the majestic landscape of terraced rice, cornfields, and several villages in the initial phase will astonish and remind us how diverse culture and traditions are from place to place. Plain path and terrain through the jungle, unhurried uphill will lead to Banskharka. It will be our first halt for lunch. After lunch, the pace of our walk remains steady as the path ahead consists of dense forest with gradual ascend, small delicately located village portraits the prehistoric significance of culture and tradition. Then a cultural walk from the village known as Suntala Kharka leads the path further to the thick forest.

    The path will take approximately 6-7 hours and the overnight at Nagi Village will wipe out the entire tiredness of the day. It is time to get cozy in the traditional homestay and local lodge.

  • Day 04: Nagi Village (2,230 meters) to Mohare Danda (3,320 meters)

    Nagi Village (2,230m/ 7,316 ft) Mohare Danda (3,320m/ 10,892 ft)

    Yeah, the breakfast can be in a localized manner too!
    Barley, Millet flour with organically cultivated vegetables can definitely boost your stamina for the destination Mohare Danda. On this specific day, we will approximately gain 1000 meters throughout the day.

    As we climb up, the scenic view of mid-hill ranges will emerge. From a distance, several crests will seem like a hillock. The Southern, as well as the Northern part, will be visible and the bird-eye view of the verdant Hilly Ranges with ever-green trees will hold your gaze. The best day to scrutinize the surroundings because an inclined path will make you rest frequently. Another top known as Him Pal which is elevated at 9,098 meters offers the grand view. Later, during the evening you will observe the dusk from the local lodge.

  • Day 05: Mohare Danda to Upper Fulbari or Danda Kharka

    Mohare Danda (3,320m/ 10,892 ft) Danda Kharka (2,765m/ 9,071 ft)

    The mighty Himalaya just in front of you, the tiredness you were feeling until yesterday will be gone and you have added an unforgettable experience and life. Early in the morning, witness the mystical hemispherical dusk.

    The golden rays of the sun on the pinnacle of Mt Dhaulagiri (8,167 meters), Annapurna (8,019 meters), Macchapuchhure (6,993 meters), Manaslu (8,156 meters) including other ranges as well. Mohare Danda is one of the favorite spots to observe the topography swifts. The Juniper forest on the lower part, a barren hill in the middle, and on top all-around snow-capped Himalayas.

    The path will be slightly easier and downhill through the forest crossing one to two sparse villages. Tonight, we will be staying either in Fulbari or Danda Kharka (2,765 m).

  • Day 06: Fulbari or Danda Kharka to Tikot Village

    Danda Kharka (2,765m/ 9,071 ft) Tikot Village: (2,210m/ 7,250 ft)

    Today’s walk will be from various exquisite viewpoints of Thula Kharka & Sikha Danda. Regardless of the elevation, today’s spot offers an admiring view towards the North and villages located nearby. The total day walk will be relatively shorter than the previous day. We will be exploring the village and getting familiar with the villagers’ chores.

  • Day 07: Trek to Baseri and Drive to Pokhara - 4 hours walk/4 hours drive

    Tikot Village: (2,210m/ 7,250 ft) Baseri: (830m/ 2,730 ft) Pokhara: (1,400m/ 4,593 ft)

    Today’s ending point of the trip is Pokhara. The trip today will include both on foot and in-vehicle. Mostly the trail will be downhill towards the Kali Gandaki River. We suggest trekkers be cautious because walking downhill needs more concentration compared to uphill.

    After getting at the bank of the river we will hop into a jeep and head towards Pokhara. The distance is almost 100 kilometers while it will take approximately 4 hours drive.
    Pokhara is the tourist hub, where you can eat, drink and roam around. And make sure you pack your stuff and essentials as we will be leaving early tomorrow morning.

  • Day 08: Flight or Drive back to Kathmandu

    Pokhara: (1,400m/ 4,593 ft) Kathmandu: (1,300m/ 4,265 ft)

    6-7 hours drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu in a private vehicle, pulling over occasionally for lunch, toilet breaks, and tea/coffee breaks. Check-in at a hotel in Kathmandu. There are few restaurants on the way which serve great food and fresh coffee. This above 200 km day ride to Kathmandu can be fun with good music and memories of the trek.

    Once you reach Kathmandu you will check-in at a nice hotel around the Thamel area. In the evening you can stroll around for souvenir shopping, drinks, and dinner. Walking around Thamel and nearby areas for shopping and self-exploring the narrow streets of this tourist hub is a good idea to spend your evening in Kathmandu.

  • Day 09: Final Departure

    Kathmandu: (1,300m/ 4,265 ft)

Successful Science Research Trip to Annapurna Region Arvinda Kumar Singh & Ajay Kalkata, India

Successful Science Research Trip to Annapurna Region

We chose Nepal for our science research trip, which was organized by Trekkers Paraside and Adventure Pulse. We both appreciated the dedication of the entire team to making our research trip successful. Our research based on Glacier, river, high altitude lake & mountain, flora & fauna through the Science University of Calcutta.  We explored the Manaslu Glacier near Bimthang, Himlung Himal glacier of Nar Phu valley trek,  Tilicho Lake, and the Kali Gandaki River. Our trip duration of about a month. Because of the heavy snowfall in February 2021, crossing the Throng-la pass was difficult but worth it. The guide Mr. Sange Sherpa is the most important aspect of our research trip's success. If you are looking for any science-related research in the Himalayas, both guide and company are highly recommended.

Train Yourself

Qualification/Training

Best physical condition is required to trek in Nepal’s high altitude. Without some pre-trek training or a good level of basic fitness, it can be hard. We suggest running, walking, hiking on the hill, climbing stairs rather than elevators to prepare for the trek. Include swimming, rowing, biking in your daily base training.

Basic further experience and strength required for Trekking

  • One should be able to hike for 4-5 hours a day.
  • One should be able to carry 5 kg themselves on a backpack for preparation.
  • We suggest you run about 4/5 miles in the home for the preparation with some load on your back for 1 month to make your climbing much easier. Or use the treadmill for everyday running and walking.
  • If you have an uphill location/mountain then once a week you should go hiking with a loaded bag pack on your back. If you do not have mountains and high hills then use stairs to go up/down than the elevator.
  • Regular swimming, biking, rowing is also a good way to maintain your physical strength.
