Travel Challenge: Hiking in Nepal
Friday 10 February 2012
Each week we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a two-week hiking holiday in Nepal.
Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each includes a group tour with guides, transfers, porters and flights from Heathrow to Kathmandu in early April.
£1,533: Everest Teahouse Trail
Includes Jet Airways flights via Delhi on 2 April and a trek through the Dudh Kosi and Khumbu valleys to Namche Bazaar village. Accommodation is in hotels and teahouses, with four breakfasts.
"The Everest Teahouse Trail offers excellent value for money and admires some of the most spectacular scenery in the Himalayas, including Mount Everest," says Ashley Toft of Explore.
"Staying overnight in family-run teahouses also gives travellers the chance to enjoy the warm hospitality of the Sherpa people" (0844 499 0901; explore.co.uk).
£1,795: The Annapurna Range
Includes Jet Airways flights via Delhi on 5 April and a trek in the Annapurna Range. Accommodation with most meals is included with sightseeing. "This journey lets the traveller explore myriad natural wonders, go white-water rafting, camp by a riverbank, trek through the Himalayas and visit Chitwan National Park, home to the Bengal tiger," says Susan Rock of Virgin Holidays Worldwide Journeys (0844 225 1235; virginholidaysjourneys. co.uk). Book by 15 February.
£1,511: Everest Base Camp
Includes Gulf Air flights via Bahrain on 10 April and a trek to Everest Base Camp. Accommodation is in hotels and teahouses with all meals included.
"Take on the challenge of a lifetime as you cross glaciers, traverse valleys and climb high passes," says Rebecca McKernan of Intrepid.
"This is a demanding hike, but you'll feel exhilarated when you reach Base Camp and see the spectacular Himalayan vistas." (0800 781 1660; intrepidtravel.com)
