    HIGHLIGHTS: Kathmandu - Pokhara

    Like to toot your own horn? Well, this is the trek for you. Help support local schools and projects by staying in lodges run by the community. Geckos actually helped build these lodges so we're pretty proud of them too *pats own back*. Oh, and the views aren't half bad.

    Day 1 - KATHMANDU
    If Kathmandu was a person, they'd have dreadlocks and smell like patchouli. It's the perfect place to sip on masala tea and load up on momos (dumplings) before the trek.

    Day 2 - POKHARA
    It's a long bus trip to pokhara, but the arvo is free to explore. Take a boat onto Nepal's second biggest lake and walk around the village. You'll have giggling, smiling, singing kids hanging off every limb. Be prepared, they love having their photo taken.

    Day 3-8 - COMMUNITY LODGE TREK
    Each day we'll try and do about 4-6 hours of walking. We avoid all the usual trails which means you won't see many other trekkers. Stay in community lodges (which Geckos helped build) at Swanta, Chistibung, Bayeli and Kopra (our pick for best sunrise).

    Day 10-11 - KATHMANDU
    You can't leave without seeing the Bodhnath Stupa. A stupa is a round structure filled with Buddhist relics and this is the largest one in Nepal. You should probably also get a hot shave so you don't go home looking like a yeti.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
