Hotel Accommodation

It all depends on the client’s requirement. However, we patronize 3-5 star standard Hotels, in Kathmandu for our clients as these hotels are conveniently located in the center of the popular Thamel district. Outside Kathmandu, clients are made to stay in teahouse and camp as required.

Best Seasons:

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons for trekking in the Annapurna region. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature, then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan, and Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the summer or monsoon seasons (June to Aug) will be affected by rain but the summer trek could be a paradise for a keen botanist and naturalist.
