Lamjung Himal is a rarely trekked region in the Annapurna region. With this nine-day trek, you will see a wonderful cross-section of Nepal and incredible views of Himalayas. There are no lodges in the Lamjung Himal region, so we organise this trek as a camping-style trek. The trails in Nepal with lodges are getting busier. Choosing a camping trek means you access a remote region less frequented by trekkers.
After a drive from Kathmandu, the Lamjung trek starts from the small town of Besisahar. Our trail heads to the West through traditional Gurung villages and fields. Next, you enter the forest zone with rhododendron and bamboo. Further up above the tree line into the alpine zone.
From Valley Camp, at 3,717m we walk up Rambrong West Summit (4,384m) and enjoy the view of the Himalayan mountains. From the summit, you can see Lamjung Himal (6,983m), Ganesh Himal (7,422m), and Mt Machapuchare known as Fish Tail (6,997m). In the West, you can see Manaslu (8,163m) and Himal Chuli in the East. From Valley camp, the trail descends down another ridge. We follow this for three days to Tangting village.

As soon as we arrived, we knew we were in safe hands, with a personal interest in our welfare and enjoyment. I am at the extreme age for trekking, but the guides were superb. They offered silent support at all times, with a helping hand or taking a heavy day pack. The helped up to enjoy their beautiful country with them, and it was sad to leave them. They worked tirelessly on our behalf .I recommend this trip to anyone with a sense of adventure and wonder. It was the trip of a life time. Thank you.
