Looking back at 2014

What a year, 2014

They say "Time Flies" and so it did fly in 2014 as we are already in the last day of 2014 which has indeed been a very adventurous year. We literally had it all in the year 2014, numerous adventure sports were added on to breathtaking Trekking in Nepal experiences of several clients adding that extra zing to their trekking journey. Expeditions and Peak Climbs went well as  well with our clients in a year that was very dangerous to say the least with tragedies in Annapurna Region and Everest Region as well. 

Mother Nature did had her blessing on us as we were able to conduct all the trips without fatality and managed to walk away with only minor injuries during the Annapurna Base Camp Trek as well. We would also like to express our heartfelt condolences to those incredible brave Sherpas and Mountaineers who did not make it through that horrifying day. It does remind us about the power Mother Nature has and that we should always respect her. The fact that we do need to have right gears at the right altitude to overcome worst case scenarios was highlighted in a very alarming way this year.

2014 was a great year for Adventure Trekking Nepal. We have never compromised on safety and quality to reduce cost and be more competitive in the market.  We were speculated by many economists for overcharging but we did stand our grounds and managed to end the year without any major losses. 

We hope you all had a great year and wish you all the very best for 2015. Thank you all for trusting and choosing us as your local Outfitter in Nepal. We really appreciate that. It really means a lot and we could never thank you enough for your suggestions, recommendation and faith which have kept us going.

  Thank you

Merry Christmas from Nepal

Christmas in Nepal

Still popularly known to many as the "Hindu Kingdom", Nepal does have a very deeply tied relation with Christmas and Christianity in general. Known for peace and harmony among people with different religious beliefs, Nepal has 1.4%  of its population following Christianity according to the census of 2011 and the numbers are multiplying each year.

For a tourist, feeling that they will be left behind from the holiday experience if they get stuck in Nepal during the Christmas Holidays is nothing but a myth. Yes, one will definitely miss his home town and home country, but we Nepalese do have a sense of celebration and one can enjoy the Christmas Eve in the streets of Thamel which is fully decorated with lights and also in the restaurants, clubs and pubs where in environment is electrifying for the Eve. In all the major hotels as well, Christmas Dinner is served and they usually arrange functions and parties during Christmas.

We, being local Outfitter in Nepal, are no different. We embrace customers from all religious beliefs and customs equally. In fact we have always considered ourselves lucky as we get to mingle with people from different cultural beliefs and get a unique opportunity to learn about their culture and traditions first hand. 

Trekking in Nepal during the holiday season would definitely make you miss your home town and family but one thing is for sure, you will not miss Christmas and Santa Clause is defibately coming to Nepalese Towns. 

  Merry Christmas to everyone !!

Trekking in Nepal - The Forbidden Kingdom

The Kingdom of Mustang formerly known as the Kingdom of Lo and popularly known as The Forbidden Kingdom was inaccessible for centuries and has recently been opened for visitors and tourists. Mustang (from Tibetan Mun Tan (Wylie smon-thang) which means fertile plain) is located in the Northern Central part of Nepal and is the of Adventure Trekking in Nepal experience. Giving an opportunity to get a glimpse of the kingdom, the famous Muktinath Temple and the Sky Caves, the trek in this region of Mustang is one of the finest trekking routes throughout the world.

Upper Mustang, another remarkable landmark of the trek is located in the North of the Mighty Annapurna Mountain and is 4,000 meters above the sea level. The valleys are mostly arid and dry resulting into numerous caves dwelling up in the cliffs which are full of myths and history. If one is seeking to see undisturbed Tibetan Culture, Trekking to Upper Mustang is the ideal trek as due to its proximity, the land and its people have preserved the culture. 

The Trekking to Mustang Region follows established trails through numerous villages that once served as the trade route between Nepal and Tibet. The whole trekking route is home to impressive chortens and simple monasteries which reflect the abiding Buddhist culture and one will feel like going back in time while travelling through these trials all along the villages. The terrain is flanked by snowy peaks making every moment of the trek even more special.  The highlight of this incredible Trekking in Nepal Experience is the visit to Lo Manthang (The Forbidden Kingdom) where the King of Mustang still reigns over his tiny kingdom.

We as outfitters in Nepal not only serve our clients but do a lot of travelling ourselves. We have uploaded a lot of pictures from our recent trip to the Kingdom on our facebook  page. Feel free to check them out.

If those images will not excite you, I am not sure what will ?

Well then, lets make a trip to the Forbidden Kingdom in the Spring of 2015 and allow AdventureTrekking Nepal an opportunity to be your local outfitter. You will relish every minute of the trip !

We are back !!

To all of you who were wondering where did we disappear, there is some good news and some bad.

Lets start with the bad ones, we did never feel like coming back to work. Travelling was so much better and so much fun. We did have difficulties on the road, the trek was a tough one and we did battle a lot. Not to forget the food at times, did not enjoy them much but had to swallow as nutrition was indeed necessary for us to keep going.

No the good part. No words could explain the feeling of travelling to the best trek area of Nepal. It was majestic. The Holy Muktinath Temple, Mustang, meeting with the Prince of The Forbidden Kingdom, Manang, Thorong-la Pass, Sky Caves of Mustang ..... it was just incredible. Not to forget the night spent at Tilicho Lake. Breathtaking, to say the least.

Trekking in Nepal is a pleasure and Outfitting Trekking in Nepal is simply not good enough for us. We have to do it so that we can share our feeling with our clients and let them know precisely what to expect of the trek.

Will keep posting more pictures and events of the trek but for now sit back, relax and enjoy the album in our facebook page of the trip. These are just the first round of pictures.
