Why Nepal?

Come a few days early and enjoy some time in Kathmandu from the trekker's hotspot of Thamel to Durbar Square and the local Stupas.  Then spend time on course with enough time to get the pace of life in Nepal.  Before or after the course look for trekking options from 3 days to 21 days across Nepal before the monsoon arrives.

Looking for some recommendations for setting up your trip?  We can give you some information or connect you with locals in Nepal that can help to set up your trek.

In Country Recommendations

Thamel Lodging

​We recommend staying in the trekkers' hotspot of Thamel at the Kathmandu Guest House or the Hotel Holy Himalaya before and after your course.

Trekking & Climbing Expeditions

We recommend LaMa Walks or Kaitu Expeditions for booking your trekking or Climbing Expeditions in Nepal!
