Trekking Life: Wine and Cheese Included

The "Not Just Treks" Trailer

A good trekking expedition is one completed in style. The participants have a passion for the great outdoor and the mountain environment bears minimal impact from the passing of the group. When all the factors are favorable the group will reach the height of their destination and return home enriched from discovery of self and new places.

Part and parcel of a trekking holiday is the raw excitement of the atmosphere, sights and sounds of ancient capital cities. Their very name fire the imagination: Kathmandu, Lhasa, Thimpu, Gantok and the like. In cities we use 2-3 star hotels of character. We use the best available. We have found that a little luxury before and after the trek is always welcome. The history and religions are an important facet of your trek; we certainly recommend plenty of reading beforehand.

Trekking is a wonderfully relaxing pursuit in the company of like-minded people. It gives you a chance to make new friends, and enables you to interact with local people, who will surely invite you into their houses for yak-butter tea, or Chang (barley beer). Himalayan tribes-people are open hearted, generous and often display a mischievous sense of humour - time in their company is often one of the fondest memories you carry home.

"It was a great benefit to our group to have Raj as our tour leader, his confidence and experience inspired the rest of the group to achieve the trek. It has been great fun but our singing has not improved." Nigel Burrage, U.K

"For a first or any trip to the Himalayas , this trek couldn't be bettered. Raj clearly has the knack of putting a happy and experienced guides and porters who add to the holiday. Despite a wide age range in the group all got what they wanted from the trip. Raj always had time for all and all interests. His guitar playing in the nights encouraged even the tone deaf to join in and contribute something to the party. A great trip."

John Fazerkerly, Lynn Shields, U.K

"The trip was fantastic! It was everything I expected and far more! Yes the trekking was brilliant. Very hard at times, but well and truly worthwhile each time I looked up and saw the scenery. In addition whenever the terrain or altitude got tough Raj was there to give some verbal support. He was able to lighten up all situations. I definitely recommend the Annapurna Sanctuary tour to everyone, particularly I Raj is there to give you the supportive, fun and welcoming hand through it."

Nicole Payne, Australia

"I don't normally do organized trips but it was everything I could've hoped for. Raj had the professionalism and knowledge to make the trip a very authentic one. We had the freedom to what we wanted when we wanted and when times got quiet (which was very minimum) Raj was always there with his guitar and singing skills. It was an amazing Himalayan experience- one to remember for a lifetime."

Helen Roberts, Wales

"The entire trip was terrific. Enjoyed everything. Thought the trip was well organized and well run. Nepal is the most beautiful place on earth and Raj helped us to see it and understand it better. Thanks"

Jean Torrance, Canada

"Well . where to start? This was a brilliant trip. I had an absolute ball! (Thanks Raj). Energy must be saved for dancing in the evenings as that can be more taxing than the 2 hours uphill. Every drop of sweat and gasp of air is worth the satisfaction of reaching base camp, the beauty makes all the puffing worthwhile. The only place I would walk for 7 hours after a night on the toilet and vomiting in the garden!! Thanks Raj for helping me up the hill to Chomrong. I thought those stairs would never end. It will be sad to leave but at least I have some new dance moves to take to the clubs in London !! Thanks"

Tracy Hardy, London, (But from New Zealand )

"What a good time! Presently dancing with all those wonderful Nepalese porters and Sherpas, a real celebration of the past week plus. The trek was great- pace set by Dhan, Rattan with Raj keeping us bojus (grandmothers) company at the rear. Lots to look at, marvel, photograph, endless stairways to heaven, and then descend s equally endless. Long stretches of seemingly uninhabited country then suddenly a settlement with buildings, buffaloes, people, sidewalk shops and food and shelter (Tadapani). I'd recommend this trip to the moderately fit or better."

Johanna Sandkull (Jo), Canada
