Ker & Downey Mountain Lodge Trek

Ker & Downey Mountain Lodge Trek Ker & Downey Mountain Lodge Trek
£2275

The great mountains of Nepal used to be the preserve of tough walkers who were prepared to camp in somewhat harsh conditions.

However, with the construction of four lodges in the Annapurna foothills above Pokhara, the legendary adventure company, Ker & Downey, has entirely changed the concept of Himalayan trekking. Only on foot can you really discover the entrancing personality of this mountainous kingdom, and now you can enjoy a warm bed and hot shower at the end of each day.

Each lodge is located some five hours' walk apart in an area of outstanding natural beauty within the Annapurna Conservation Area, and treks follow strict conservation guidelines. Trekking itineraries are entirely flexible and can include just one or a combination of mountain lodges. All treks allow time to visit local villages, photograph the scenery and absorb the spirit of the country, aided by the presence of the indomitable Ghurkhas who are the backbone of Ker & Downey's team, and keen to share their intimate understanding of Nepalese hill culture and tradition.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
