Infos & Booking


I suggest you come to Nepal to complete the famous Annapurna tour, rightly considered one of the most beautiful treks in the world. It's also one of Nepal's most popular treks.

You'll explore the beautiful village of Manang, where you'll spend a day acclimatizing before crossing the Thorong La pass, a difficult passage on the way to Muktinath, a pilgrimage site for Buddhists and Hindus. The panoramas of the Annapurna tour are grandiose, and the lodges along the way make this trek very comfortable and enjoyable.

From 900 to 5400 meters above sea level, a world of varied cultures unfolds before our eyes. This extraordinary journey takes you from the land of Hindu rice paddies to the high valleys of Buddhist and Tibetan influence. It's a trek that offers magnificent views of the Himalayas, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and upper Mustang.

I also propose other easier itineraries on the Annapurna balconies: the Ghorepani to Chitwan and the Ghandruk trekkings.
