If ‘go on an overseas adventure’ made it onto your list of new year’s resolutions or you’ve ever dreamt of exploring the mighty Himalaya but weren’t sure where to start, mark January 23 in your calendar right this second. World Expeditions is hosting its very first information evening for the year, which just so happens to be about Nepal and Bhutan. World Expeditions has been pioneering adventure travel to the region for more than 30 years, so suffice to say they know their stuff. At the information evening, you can hear about the magic of this remote pristine wilderness, the unique cultures and the life-changing experiences that await.
Travel to the base of the sacred, fluted peak of Machapuchare. Go into the Annapurnas, beyond the tea house trails and trek through traditional Hindu villages where you are assured of a warm welcome. Search for a rhino or Bengal tiger in Chitwan National Park. Take the trekkers pilgrimage to Everest Base Camp with the creature comforts of above-ground bedding, head-high tents, western-style toilets and an eco-friendly dining room in World Expeditions’ new permanent campsites or enjoy a more tranquil journey through the Sherpa heartland that affords ample time for acclimatisation with opportunities to savour the mountain panoramas. Whatever your preference, World Expeditions’ treks offer a great opportunity to leave Nepal’s tourist trails and venture into the deep forests and roam the high alpine passes.
The information evening will also inform you about tranquil Bhutan. In this serene kingdom, explore the cultural heritage and follow trails that lead high above the Paro and Thimphu valleys to gain unrivalled views of the Himalayan peaks that define the borderlands of Bhutan and Tibet.
