Annapurna Trails and Homestay

15 days, Grade B

Dhaulagiri from Poon HillNepali children workingNepali villagersTerraced fieldsWatch trip slide showThis imaginative itinerary combines adventure and compassion providing you lasting memories of the Himalaya and allowing you to make a difference to a community in Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world. The first part of your holiday, an introductory trek in the Himalaya will allow you to explore the Annapurna region walking for five days through beautiful terraced villages and enjoy viewing the majestic Machhappuchare, Daulaghiri, and Annapurna mountains. The highlight of the trek will be a sunrise walk to the view point at Poon Hill, a classic place from which to enjoy the snow capped peaks of the massive Himalaya.

In Kathmandu you will have a chance to see the finest Newari architecture in the East, experience the hustle and bustle of the medieval type markets, explore the cobbled streets and temple complexes, before transferring to your community project. You then have the opportunity to experience a family stay & community project. What better way to get to know Nepal than stay with a family and work with the local community? We hope you will take away from this not only a deep understanding of the culture and way of life, but also a great feeling of satisfaction and an experience to treasure.

    This has been the most culturally enriching trip I have ever been on with professional staff who are especially informative. Thank you for allowing me to immerse myself in Nepal. I have been moved by the Nepali people.

    Your prices are very comparable to others, and given all the added value of charitable & comunity support you are head and shoulders above other providers as a choice.

    The Trekking team were excellent – from our very first brief on the first day I felt we were in safe, experienced hands; but it was so much more than that – we were really spolied which meant we could enjoy the experience so much more!
    Bless you in all you do. Thanks for making it such a great time.

    Personally, Thank you, and the Team for everything from taking care of us to answering our questions, its an unending list that you cater for. I had an amazing time and experienced, observed, and learnt much.

    Well back to the Western World! and all that, it entails, however with much to reflect on and richer in many many ways from the Nepal experience.

    I had really a wonderful time in Nepal and I would like to thank you, the boys and Siling for arranging everything and making our stay a pleasant experience. I have been recommending to all my friends to travel to Nepal and experience the beautiful country.

    Our Leader, sherpas and porters were excellent. Well done to the whole team. I felt very looked after

    We didn’t do the Homestay part but we thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with the Scottish clan for the trek. The organisation was superb and Siling’s leadership inspirational – we were particularly intrigued by his interest and extensive knowledge of butterflies! Sarki, Milo and Pemba were always very supportive, helping to keep the group together during arduous sections. We are currently in training for a second visit in two year’s time to attempt the Everest View trek. Pete, Ana and Thomas

    On behalf of the students and staff, I would like to express our thanks for the professional and friendly way you organised and supported our recent study tour to Nepal.

    I know the student group found the meetings with NGO’s both stimulating and informative. In particular the information and discussion on children’s rights will be of considerable value.

    The trek through the Annapurna Trails was a real personal challenge for many of the students. An essential part of the success of this part of the trip is certainly down to the care, support and encouragement from the trekking crew. They are a great bunch of people and we would love to travel with them again.

    The highlight of the trip was of course the opportunity to stay with local people in their homes, and to have the opportunity to contribute to the building of the local school. This project has given the student group a real sense of satisfaction and they talk about their time in the village with warmth and fond memories.

    Currently we are planning a repeat of the study tour and look forward to meeting and working with you again. We also fully recommend The Responsible Travellers to other organisations wanting to explore Nepal in a socially and environmentally conscious way.
