In Kathmandu we stay at the comfortable, well located Radisson Hotel. The Radisson Hotel is situated in Lazimpat, a quiet and central area of Kathmandu. Only a short 12 minute walk to the main tourist district of Thamel, the Radisson acts as a base for World Expeditions travellers. The hotel has a World Expeditions tour desk in the foyer, free WIFI, a pool and bar, gymnasium, restaurants, room service, currency exchange and free luggage storage whilst you are on trip. A hearty buffet breakfast is included with every night stay in the Radisson. The Tranquility Spa, within the Radisson offers massage, reflexology, steam room and sauna, plus many beauty treatments for your enjoyment as a World Expeditions client you will receive a 30% discount off the retail prices on any treatment at the Spa. You can book these services through the Radisson while you are in Nepal.


To determine the grade of a particular adventure we consider a number of factors. These include the condition of the walking terrain, the altitude, the number of pass crossings and the length of the trek. The Annapurna Trek is graded introductory. This is primarily due to the low altitude gains and the condition of the trail which is well defined and not unduly demanding. During the trek you will be walking for up to five to six hours a day at a slow but steady pace. You will need a reasonable level of fitness (remember there is no such thing as an easy trek) and we suggest 30 minutes of aerobic type exercise, (either cycling or jogging) three times a week for the three months leading up to your trek. Hill walking with a daypack in variable weather conditions is also recommended.

Check out our Q&As

  • Who will be my travelling companions on the tour?

    We have offices on three continents which means your travelling companions will be just that – international and wonderfully eclectic. Part of small group travel means that although travellers come from various locations and backgrounds, you will be travelling with like-minded companions who, like you, are keen to share the experience and forge lifelong friendships.

  • What about environmental impact?

    We believe that adventure travel revolves around establishing a strong relationship with the people and environments in which we operate. Our responsible travel policies have been carefully developed to ensure that we minimise the impact of our presence and help to protect the regions we visit while contributing positively to the local community.

  • What should I pack?

    Your pre-departure documents include a detailed packing list with items that you need to bring. While most of the equipment for daily activities is included in your tour cost, some items like helmets and hiking boots are best brought from home. The pre-departure documents also include information on layering and recommended brands for various items to ensure you are fully prepared for your trip.

  • Do you operate a “single share” option and how does it work?

    Yes. World Expeditions does not require single travellers to pay a surcharge for travelling alone on the vast majority of our trips. Our holidays are primarily on a twin share basis, so if you are joining the group as a solo traveller, we will match you with someone of your own gender. The choice is yours however; if you prefer not to share, we do offer single supplements for private occupancy.

  • Are tips included in my trip price?

    Tips are not included in the tour cost. Tipping is a personal thing, do not worry about how much, or when, to tip. Tipping guidelines are provided for certain destinations in our pre departure information upon booking, however the best advice will be provided by your tour leader.

  • Am I suited to small-group travel?

    We recognise that many of our travellers have not been on a ‘group trip’ before. Yet what our departures provide is both structure and flexibility, allowing you plenty of freedom within the framework of the itinerary. You’ll find that with our maximum group size at 16, you’ll travel in a minimal impact style with a great group of like-minded travellers.

  • Can you advise which vaccinations are recommended?

    While our pre-departure kit provides information on vaccinations, we suggest that you consult your doctor, local government inoculation centre or a travel medical specialist in order to get the most current advice regarding vaccination requirements.

Our Annapurna trip was delightful in every respect. From the cultural dinner and tours in Kathmandu to the villages, people and scenery of the majestic Annapurna region. Our guides and porters were always obliging and encouraging; 'rest is best' and 'slow is the go' were their mantras. We were well fueled and rested after each days trek and fully immersed among the local people and their lives...the days blurred and we easily lost track of the days.

Our Annapurna trek in Nepal was fantastic. It was graded appropriately, our guide BK was exceptional (as were all the other support crew) and the food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. The attention to detail was impressive. We'll definitely be trekking again with World Expeditions.

We were very happy with the organisation of our trek. We changed the planned itinerary to allow extra time in Pokhara and everything worked well. Our guide was excellent and the meals were great.

I had a really good time, despite an old hip injury giving me a lot of pain. One day I couoldn't walk and had to use the local pony service, but I was able to still stay with my group. we were so well looked after, super meals were provided, and the lodgings were perfectly acceptable. A special mention to Bijay, the group leader, and Ram (sirdar) who were especially kind and helpful to me when I was struggling. Truly kind souls.

I was extremely happy with the trek.The team leader (Subash) was great.Infact it felt like we were saying goodbye to friend at the end of the trek.The cook(Kamal) & porters(Ram & Omeas) were unbelievable.They were so happy & enthusiastic.The food was excellent & well prepared. A couple of minor issues: I thought that the shower & toilets at Gandruk were sub standard. The trip grading was classified as introductory.However even though I am 68 but relatively fit I found it quite demanding at times.Also I was completely unprepared & unadvised about the volume of steps on the trails. However overall I had a great time.

A fantastic experience, from the 2 days spent in Nepal - a vibrant, colourful and culturally interesting experience to the splendor of Himalayas, this was a wonderful trip. Extremely well organised, especially for a solo traveller, with a great guide and friendly, helpful staff. The food was fantastic, all carried and cooked by the team. Highly recommended.
