Trips and treks guaranteed to run



I thoroughly enjoyed the Annapurna Luxury Lodges trek: the walking routes, the guide and porters and the hospitality in the lodges were all excellent

Can I purchase trekking equipment/toiletries/snacks/ etc in Kathmandu before trip to save bringing from home?

You can purchase trekking clothes and equipment in Kathmandu, we recommend Shonas Store in Thamel on Jyatha Road for reasonable quality locally made gear such as fleeces, trekking trousers, waterproof jackets and trousers, gloves and mitts as well as rucsacs and duffel bags.

It is also possible these days to purchase western brands such as The North Face and Mountain Hardwear however please note the only approved distributors are on Tridevi Marg as all of the other shops in Thamel only sell locally made copies commonly known as “The North Fake”.

There are also several good supermarkets in Kathmandu selling both imported brands and locally made food and toiletry products. If you are staying at Hotel Tibet in Lazimpat then there is Big Mart supermarket around the corner and in fact this supermaket is also only 10 minute walked from Shangri La hotel. Hotel Tibet is our group hotel for our standard treks and tours then Shangri La is our usual hotel for luxury treks and tours (depending on availability of rooms).
