Nepal 20-Day Tours & Itineraries
There’s no better place in the world for mountain excursions than Nepal. In 20 days you could design an epic adventure as you embark on the famous Annapurna Circuit Trek, which will take you from subtropical jungle all the way up to the Thorung La Pass, which is at an altitude of 17,716 feet (5,400 meters). Or you could head off the beaten track to the most northern and remote region of Nepal, the Limi Valley. On this trek you’ll head westward towards the border with China, passing ancient Buddhist monasteries and making your way over breathtaking Himalayan mountain passes at a whopping 16,000 feet (4,900 meters) in altitude.

Hidden deep within the Himalaya is Humla: the highest, most northern and remote district of Nepal. Humla is culturally diverse, occupied in the northern highlands by Bhotias, and in the southern valleys and riverbeds by the Khasas (Hindus). You will experience these rich and varied cultures as you trek over 16,000 ft passes, through remote villages, and explore ancient monasteries in the vivid Limi Valley.
This 20-day itinerary guides you along the legendary Three Passes route—one of Nepal's most challenging and spectacular treks. Traverse a rugged landscape of steep passes, glaciers, and the world's highest freshwater lakes to reach the doorstep of Mount Everest. With downtime to rest and acclimatize to the altitude, you'll gain insight into the rich Sherpa culture with visits to local villages and isolated monasteries.
