Experience the sights of Kathmandu with a qualified English speaking guide. See some ancient temples nestled within the city, places that have remained the same for centuries. But don't just see them; get a valuable insight from a knowledgeable local guide. You will be amazed. Kathmandu has more surprises than you can imagine.
Kathmandu has a wealth of accommodation options. On our standard expedition departure we stay at a good, western standard, mid-range hotel but if you feel you would like to upgrade to luxury style, we can assist with booking alternative hotels.
Visit Chitwan or Pokhara
Chitwan National Park is one of the major draw cards in Nepal outside of the Himalayas themselves. This is a World Heritage listed wildlife reserve that protects over 932 square kilometres of wilderness that is home to a raft of different wildlife. While there you will have the opportunity to see one horned rhinoceroses, monkeys and deer, and if you are really lucky you might even see a Royal Bengal Tiger. Since you are in Nepal, why not stay a little longer and experience this gem. For more information check out our Chitwan page.
Pokhara and Tiger Mountain Lodge
Perched 1,000 feet above the Pokhara Valley with a spectacular Himalayan backdrop, Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge provides a perfect haven, the essence of tranquillity. This side trip is ideal for guests pre- and post-expedition, or for those wishing to take day walks exploring local communities, bird-watching, gentle exercise, or just to relax in a typical Nepalese rural setting. For more information check out our Pokhara page.
Trek Option for Non-Climbing Family or Friends
This expedition will be accompanied by a small group of trekkers, creating a perfect opportunity for friends or family to share the adventure, including an optional ascent of the non-technical Saribung. While you are climbing Himlung the trekkers enjoy exploring the trails and villages around the region before meeting again for celebrations and descent down valley. The cost for the trek is US$6500
Privately Guided Expedition
We are also able to offer Privately Guided Expeditions where you have the services of a top AC western guide as well as your own Sherpa support team to work exclusively with you on the expedition to ensure your needs are best met. AC have been fortunate to work with many privately guided groups over the years with exceptional results.
On Mountain Extras
Additional Sherpa Support
We can arrange for our Sherpa team to carry your loads between camps. This option enables climbers to forego the carrying of heavy packs which is often very debilitating at high altitude. For some climbers, the long climb wearing a pack can leave them too exhausted for summit day and hence this service greatly enhances your summit opportunity.
Personal Communications & Personal Tent on Mountain
You may also like to talk to us about other options such as personal communication systems (own BGAN satellite connection and laptop at Base Camp), or the provision of a personal tent on the mountain.
Have a cameraman join your expedition and document the entire thing! Choose from a variety of options for different budgets. You could have a full colour book and short film, or a full documentary for television. Your trip is the trip of a lifetime; why not keep it to show your friends and family
