Trek the Himalayan Kingdom

The Himalaya is the world’s mightiest mountain system, containing nine of Earth’s ten highest peaks and stretching more than 2,500kms across India, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and Pakistan. Long associated with great adventurers and mountaineers, this is a place like no other: remote, majestic and romantic.

Head to Nepal’s Annapurna region for a classic trek through lush foothills and Hindu villages; or walk among rhododendron forests, fluttering prayer flags and iconic peaks as you trek towards Mount Everest base camp.
