Lamjung Himal trekking in the Annapurna region starts from the historical city, Gorkha. Even though this trek has less traveled routes, it offers you the chance to explore lowland villages, picturesque terrace fields and experience the real beauty of the region without encountering exotic trekkers and crowds of people. The trek rewards us with several breathtaking view points from where we can see the views stretching from Dhaulagiri in the west to Manaslu in the east. Talking about the highlight of the trip, it is the day where we will spend the day at Lamjung Himal base camp on a huge alpine plateau. A bit wild and remote but full of fun, this trek starts from the historical capital of Gorkha and ends at Pokhara, the lake city.

We begin our trek through the serene green lowlands and slowly make our way towards a hill where the ancient royal Gorkha Durbar stands with pride, overlooking the snowy peaks of the Himalayas. As we descend through terraced fields, we head west to the Annapurna circuit route before traversing to the south of Lamjung Himal which lies at a low altitude with plenty of things to explore and see. You get to be face to face with the rural life of the typical Nepalese villages and their lifestyles. After we get to, Madi Pool which lies to the north of Pokhara, a trail takes us towards the fishtail peak of Machhapuchhre. We then take the trail up to Siklis through a lush and gorgeous rhododendron forest. We also come across the largest Gurung settlement situated at the foot of Lamjung Himal (6931m). After we get to the top, we descend steeply to the calm and serene Modi Khola riverside. As for our last camp at ThuloKot, it has a lot to offer like the panorama of twenty peaks before descending down to the calm Begnas Lake. Starting from the historical town of Gorkha, this interesting route crosses the valleys of the Daraundi and Marsayangdi rivers, before climbing to the eastern extension of the Annapurna range which is a very spellbinding and a very enthralling route. Get ready to experience few of the best views in the world from spectacular viewpoints with views of Manaslu, Peak 29, the Annapurna and Lamjung Himal..

Trek FAQ

Some essential questions and answers for Lamjung Himal Trekking:

How can you trek in Lamjung Himal trekking?
On a camping trek you will sleep in tents. The staff includes a guide, cook, Sherpa and sufficient porters to carry all trekking gear. Even if you have never camped before, there is no need to worry that you won't enjoy the experience. The tents we provide are roomy, the sleeping pads/ mattresses are comfortable and international style food of a high standard is freshly prepared and served. On all of our treks a bathroom tent is provided as well as a dining tent with tables and camp stools, providing a cozy, comfortable atmosphere to eat and chat with fellow trekkers during the evening.

How Camping Trek is operated?
In a camping Trek, day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea or coffee followed by a bucked of warm water for their washing and cleaning. After packing up their stuff and daypack, the trekkers are requested to leave their camp and meet at the dinning table for breakfast. The trek started around 7.30 to 8 a.m. and the kitchen staffs go ahead of the group.

Our well trained staff packs all camping equipment and gears and the porters carry them to the next camping site. The trekkers should carry only personal belongings that they may need for the day like water bottle, rain gear, camera, etc.

The Trekkers can decide on their own on time for viewing the beautiful landscape, taking photographs and resting or making a short pause. The walk to the lunch spot normally takes 3 hours. Our cook and assistant serve hot lunch upon arrival. The afternoon walk takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach at the night camp around 4/5 p.m. Tea and snacks are served while our sherpa pitch the camp. The dinner is served around 6/7 p.m. in the dining tent lit with a pressurized lantern and furnished with table and camping tools. We provide high quality tents, foam and mattress, and a simple toilet tent in every camp for your comfort.

Our well - trained and experienced cook and assistant prepare a variety of healthy, hygienic and clean food which is carried for the entire trek. Fresh Fruit and vegetable may taste on the way to trek.

Travel Insurances

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure. It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.


Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
