You’ll raft down a glacier-coloured white water river. You’ll sleep in the open on a sandy river beach. You’ll get to know the peaceful mentality of the local people.

Travel Through Nepal - What Can You Expect

  • DAY 1 - 2Arrival in Kathmandu

    We’ll arrive at the Nepalese international airport in Kathmandu. We’ll be taken care of by Nishchal, who will arrange for our accommodation in local families and then will show us interesting sites of the capital city. We’ll spend two nights here.
  • DAY 3 Adrenaline ride to Pokhara

    On the third we’ll spend an adventurous day in a bus. We’ll go to Pokhara. We’ll pass through fertile Nepalese lowlands and valleys with wild glacial rivers.
  • DAY 4-5 Relaxation after a long journey

    We’ll spend the fourth day relaxing. After a long bus trip we’ll explore Pokhara – second largest city in Nepal and the starting place of mountain expeditions. We’ll learn about the locals and the place.
  • DAY 6 Trek to 2,150 metres

    On the fifth day we’ll go by car to the starting point of our trek – Kande. This village is located 1,680 metres above sea level. On the first day of the trek we’ll go to Deurali, a village located 2,150 metres above sea level.
  • DAY 7 Climb to 3,000 metres at sunrise

    On the second day of the trek we need to get up early to see the mountains lit by the rising sun. Today’s destination is the lower camp at 3,000 metres.
  • DAY 8 Views of the Annapurna mountain range

    On the third day of the trek we’ll climb to the high camp. As we leave the rhododendron forest, we’ll enjoy open views of the Annapurna mountain range. Today we’ll reach 3,550 metres.
  • DAY 9Peak of the trek – 4,500 meters

    On the fourth day of the trek we’ll have been acclimatized. We’re going to climb to the base camp – the destination of our hike. The base camp is located at 4,500 metres above sea level, from where we’ll return to the high camp on the same day.
  • DAY 10 Up, down, and relaxing in hot springs

    On the fifth day of the trek we’ll start to descend. We’ll take the same way we used on our way to the lower camp. On the sixth day of the trek we’ll descend to Jhinu Danda. This place is famous for hot springs, which will definitely make us feel good after our demanding hike. On the seventh day of the trek we’ll join the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) route. We’ll return to Birethanti, and then back to Pokhara
  • DAY 11 - 13 Back in Pokhara

    After a couple of physically demanding days we’ll spend four days relaxing in Pokhara and its surroundings. We can ride a bicycle, walk to the World Peace Pagoda, do Yoga on the shore of Phewa Lake, try bungee jumping, or fly with a parachute. Just do what we want.
  • DAY 14 - 17Rafting the Lower Seti

    Early in the morning we’ll pack and head from Pokhara to Damauli, where we’ll sit in the raft and we’ll go rafting the Lower Seti. We’ll spend the evening and night in tents on a sandy beach by the fire perhaps with a guitar (if you have one, take it with you).
  • DAY 18 Second day on the river and journey to Kathmandu

    On the second day we’ll reach our destination at the confluence of the Lower Seti and Trishuli. We’ll have lunch and get a bus back to Kathmandu, where we’ll spend the last night.
  • DAY 19Departure from Kathmandu

    We’ll board the plane full of experiences.

What Our Clients Say?

  • Oldrich Franc Review
    I highly recommend it to all who do not want to travel and explore the country from a traveling train. To learn a foreign country, you usually have to spend more than 22 days in it. Perhaps you won`t even visit all places, however with Kuba, you will learn much more than with any travel agency or by traveling alone. For such a short time, you will not find locals who will let you live, eat and possibly work with them. And if you get closer to yourself and you live with them, you will know with your own eyes as I do lives in Nepal.

  • We have chosen to explore Nepal as a group of adventurers who have not known much before departure. What, however, was magical is that we all became friends, even though we all had a totally different vocation in life. We all get connected by the force of the concept of guys from TravelNative. This is the way that can be made only by people who really want to know, to be tolerant and personified to deserve the beauty of nature and their culture. We are all human, and we are all able to do it. It was an unforgettable month. Thank you!

  • In November 2017, I visited Asia for the first time, and I am glad that just under the guidance of Kuba and Standa who, with extraordinary fervor and dexterity, have proven to me that I could enjoy the miraculous nature and distant culture of Nepal all the time. Naturally, none of this would have been possible if the impeccable atmosphere that was created by all the fellow travelers was lacking. I most appreciated the work of boys when there was an unexpected hitch (in a country like Nepal lurking at every corner). Without unnecessary postponements, and especially with a cold head, they embarked on a solution. The advantage was the fact that they know many local people. Let photos talk about that. So Kuba and Standa thanks! I look forward to another adventure.

Do you want to have adventurous vacation?

1What should I take?
Backpack (50l is enough, ideally with a cape), can be used as hand luggage, lighter clothing such as shorts and a t-shirt, something warmer for the trek such as thermal underwear (2 t-shirts with long sleeves, polo neck) 2 t-shirts, polo neck/jumper, jacket (preferably wind-proof, waterproof, but most importantly light), light gloves + cap + hat/baseball cap (space-saving), QUALITY socks + high ankle boots, sleeping bag with a comfort temperature rating of -5 degrees, head lamp (small) sunscreen + sunglasses, space-saving flip flops (slip-ons), poncho (rain coat), bottle for water (at least 1 litre, light) travel insurance policy card + vaccination certificate (to be issued by the doctor during vaccination) + copy of the passport, extra finance, copies of all documents (paper as well as stored online - very useful in case the papers are lost).
2What should I take not to carry too much?
You need to carry everything on your back (alternatively your things are carried by a paid bearer), please take that into account. You don’t need useless things in the mountains – cosmetics, computer, tablet or the whole wardrobe. It also depends on the season, winter months (November to March) are cooler, therefore you need warmer things. There are no showers in the mountains, just a bucket and cold water – all you need is a small towel and a small bottle with shower gel. Sleeping bag is needed in routes with no facilities – if we’re going there, we’ll tell you before we go. We’ll talk about all details in person.
3Do I need visas to Nepal and how do I get them?
Visas to Nepal are requested online on the following website: . If you need any help, call us.
4What about vaccination, do I need any?
For vaccination make an appointment in a travellers’ medicine centre. We have good personal experience with Avenier vaccination centres. You can arrange consultation and initial vaccination using the following website: The current price list is here: For a selection of destinations with recommended vaccination by countries visit:
5How much money to take, should I change before I leave or when I reach the destination?
Our recommendation is to change Czech Crowns (CZK) to US Dollars (USD) at home. Then you should change dollars in the destination. Sometimes you can pay by credit card (mostly a percentage of the price is added, usually 3-5%). ATM withdrawals are possible, but are charged by a fixed amount + your bank’s fee. It is advisable to have some extra money just in case. Our recommendation is 15-20% extra of the total amount (without flight ticket).
6Where to arrange for travel insurance?
Travel insurance is definitely recommended. You never know what might happen. If you travel a lot and you don’t mind paying a little bit extra, we recommend year-round membership in Alpenverein, which also includes insurance coverage. For more information see or you can arrange traditional travel insurance online. There are many providers of travel insurance. The cheapest is Slavia pojišťovna. Below is a link to their online form:
7What is included in the price?
The price mentioned on our website is an approximate sum of all costs of usual life in the destination. The price includes the costs of accommodation, food – three times a day, transport from place to place, entrance fees, reward for the locals for their services, guide fees and our fees. The price DOES NOT INCLUDE the flight ticket (we are happy to recommend the cheapest fares). For the price you will SURVIVE, but most importantly you will ENJOY a true traveller’s holiday. The price does NOT include drinks, souvenirs, clothing and other useless things you won’t need.
8Who is a guide and how it works?
We’ll take you on the first trip (more about us in ‘Who we are’). In the future we would like to leave everything to the locals, who will be able to earn some money for better living. But you don’t have to be afraid. We have known them for a long time and we would let them look after our children (if we had any).
9Dates and number of days
The dates are chosen based on our experience, weather, cultural events, and recommendations of our friends in the destinations. We usually take smaller groups of people (around 6), who need to agree on a date. This can sometimes be difficult but we believe there is always a way. It’s similar with the number of days. We have a rough plan for each destination. We won’t restrict you in terms of what you do in the destinations. We don’t have to be together all the time like a group of schoolchildren. But if you want to go somewhere else for a different number of days, maybe it’s better to go on your own. Again, there is always a way.
10Number of travellers + free places
The best is a group of 5 to 7 people. Free places are always announced on our website and on social networks.
11What are the risks?
We’re travelling to less developed countries with different fauna and flora. We won’t be trying to make you believe that there are no risks. There are some. We are aware of many of them, therefore, we are planning everything to avoid them. We won’t list them all to make you worried. But if you are interested, we will discuss everything in person and explain what to expect. We have two rules in this respect. It is counter-productive to think about the risks too much and eventually invite them. You can be hit by a car in front of your house.
12Is there a guarantee of an unforgettable traveller’s holiday?
We believe that gaining experiences is a key aspect of travelling. Therefore, we started to offer these opportunities. There is only one guarantee: We’ll do everything for you to enjoy the journey with us and to experience something unforgettable...
