27 days
Maximum altitude:
5545 m/18192 ft
Difficulty:
Grade 3
Season:
March-June, September-November
Ama Dablam Mountain is a mountain situated in the Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. Its name means Mother’s necklace and it is the third most popular Himalayan summit for permitted expeditions.

Extremely famous for its glorious mountain peaks and the friendliness and loyalty of inhabitants, the Everest region aka Khumbu is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal. While a lot of routes on the mountain are arduous, you always have the chance to rest and enjoy a nice meal in one the many ample places.

It is suggested to try this adventure with a guide and avoid winter time, as it is very cold and snow will make it very difficult to travel above Tengboche. Furthermore many of the lodges might be closed at this altitude. During your activity, you can rest at the tea houses, where you will have the opportunity to get to know the Nepalese hospitality.

The local schools organize adventures with proper safety and guaranteed success and enjoyment. Some schools offer 9 different trek adventures and the most popular is the Everest Base Camp Classic Trek. You start this thrilling trekking tour with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and for the next two weeks you will have a unique experience.

This tour involves the Jiri pathway and the first attempt of trekking the base camp of Mount Everest was made by Tenzing Norge Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953.

This part provides one of the most classic treks in the Himalayas and offers enchanting sights of Lukla trail in the higher Khumbu. Starting your expedition with a 6 hr drive to Jiri, this trekking experience follows the traditional route taken by the early Everest expeditions.

Also known as Solu Khumbu, this section is the home of the Sherpas. While trekking through the Sherpa villages, you will come across stunning views. Although a very popular trekking route, only 8000 daring visitors try this route each year.

Starting the trek from Jiri has the advantage of helping you acclimatize it. The trek is about 120 mi/190 km long and the total altitude is gained in the innumerable uphill portions. Everest Base Camp Trek invites you to take part in two exciting challenges. Firstly, early in the morning you ascent Kala Pattar (5545 m/18192 ft), which overlooks Everest Base Camp and provides breathtaking view. Secondly, you follow the footsteps of the mountaineers, which will lead you into the highest mountain of the world.

This adventure is a legendary trek to a legendary destination, the Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal!!!

Itinerary: Depart Kathmandu at 6.30am and travel to 3 ½ hours to our camp. Once arriving, we will have a stop of lunch and get to know the staff. After you will be given your equipment and shown how to use it and after a briefing on land we hit the water. We will then spend the afternoon on a flat section of the river just outside the camp, which is more like a lake than a river – just perfect for beginners. We will spend time getting used to being in a kayak, how it feels and learning how to cross the river, building your confidence as we go.

Depending on how you improve, if there is time, we will paddle 7km down the river to Manakamana. Here you will encounter some gentle wave trains and Grade II rapids.

You’ll spend the evening enjoying a campfire at the camp. Stories round the fire and traditional music are on the menu for tonight!

The best DAY TRIP in Nepal. Abseiling down awesome waterfalls!!! Jalberi Canyon is the best canyoning spot in Nepal and the canyoning site is in a small village called Jalberi, offering great day trips from Kathmandu, Chitwan or Pokhara or a great addition to your kayaking or rafting trip on the Trisuli. No previous experience needed to join as we can teach you everything you need to know and have all the right equipment and expertise to keep you safe and show you a great time. All you need is good attitude and sense of adventure!

Trip departs from Kathmandu at 6.30am almost all year round (arrangements can be made from Pokhara or Chitwan on request and we take a short break during the monsoon months when the water is too high).

Once we get there, we will change at a small house at the bottom of the hill. There will be time for a quick cup of tea before a 20 min hike to the top where you will be greeted with a 100m waterfall, one of the most beautiful places in Nepal. Whilst your guides get all the equipment ready, you’ll have time for a photo opportunity under the epic waterfall or a quick dip in some of the natural pools. You will then be provided with a harness, life jacket and helmet and after a comprehensive safety briefing we’ll start teaching you how to climb and abseil and we are ready to go…

The trip starts with a jump into the canyon, it will get your heart beating right from the very beginning!
The largest waterfall we run is around 26 m. Sometimes we slide and sometimes we jump directly into the clear pools. After around 3 1/2 hours of adrenaline fueled fun we’ll stop for a picnic lunch in the canyon before we drive back to Kathmandu, Chitwan or Pokhara or if you prefer, come and spend a great night at our Trisuli River Camp, Gurung Valley. A trip definitely not to be missed!!!

Trisuli River Rafting is one of Nepal’s most popular river trips, ideal for everyone, from the most experienced kayaker to the first time rafter. It is also our home as we have built our fixed riverside camp.

It’s an ideal year round river (even during monsoon) just a stones throw away from Kathmandu providing a pool drop style of big volume river. This rafting trip will quench the white water desire of travelers with limited time in Nepal.

This trip leaves plenty of time to play rafting games, do some cliff jumps, swim, chill out and soak up the surreal atmosphere of Nepal’s River life. It conveniently ends at our tented river side camp, Gurung Valley. Why not extend your trip and enjoy a night at our 1 million star hotel and soak up as much river life as you can! Get off the bus and on the river!
Join us for some monsoon rafting to see how fierce this river can really get!

Whitewater Rafting: No previous experience needed to join a rafting trip on the Trisuli. Great for the first timer and families.
Kayaking: A fantastic warm up river for those going on to the bigger rivers in Nepal. Plenty of small rapids and a few challenging ones. The river is ideal for first time kayakers wanting to learn a thing or two about whitewater.
