‘NEPAL CAMPING EXPERIENCE’
October 28 – November 6, 2022
Entering this camping trek will be like entering a magical world of massive Himalayan peaks, friendly villages, cloud forests and vast terraced fields.
During this experience, we will trek the Sikles Route, which glances over at the Annapurna Range and the famous ‘fishtail’ mountain. Each day will feel like a completely different scene, walking through alive, lush forests towards our campsites. Our camps will be remote and immersed in nature, with the most mind-blowing views when you wake up in the morning.
Apart from the trek, we will have activities at the campsite for every mood. Such as art, self-exploration, music jams, deep talks around the bonfire, journaling, cacao ceremonies, and games. And let’s not forget about our wonderful Nepali guides and cooks; they’ll greet us at camp and support us when needed, with a sweet smile on their face. We will also witness the warmth, love and genuine hospitality of the Himalayan villages.
Join us on this unforgettable camping experience in the heart of Himalayas.

Who is this trip for?
– Anyone who wants to be around nature.
– Camping lovers and adventurous souls.
– This is not an extreme hike, it’s a chill camping experience in the Himalayas.
The Nepal experience is one our classic destinations, frequently traveling there since 2015. Every time we come back to this magical land, it never fails to show us something new or teach us a life lesson.
In Kathmandu, you will have the opportunity to experience the hustle and bustle of Thamel district. Walking through the organized chaos, you will find hidden gems of art, music and handmade textiles.
Flying to Pokhara will be the complete opposite, with views that stretch as far as the eye can see. The mountains are alive in a different way; it holds a deep silence and spirituality. You will enter a world of lush green forests, alpine meadows and tiny villages spread out amidst the beauty.
This experience is not a touristic trip, it’s a transformational experience that you will never forget. The mountains may be unpredictable at times, so it brings out powers in us that we didn’t know existed.

During our camping experience, there will be a big team of international and local guides, porters, chefs and helpers. The team will guide you safely through the mountains. All physical levels are welcome to join the experience.
