Nepal 8-Day Trekking Tours & Itineraries
Eight days is enough time to enjoy some of Nepal’s most famous hikes. For a truly classic Nepali experience, embark on the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, a brisk jaunt that starts from Kathmandu and features some of the best views of the snow-capped Annapurna Massif. For more great Himalayan views there’s the Muldai & Poon Hill Trek, which involves hiking through ancient villages and rhododendron forests up narrow ridges to Muldai Hill, where you can enjoy the sunrise at 9,416 feet (2,870 meters). Last but not least there’s the option to hike up through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sagarmatha National Park, where you will enjoy unforgettable views of Mt. Everest.

This trek is all about the views. In a short amount of time, you'll ascend two of the best viewpoints in the lower Annapurna region for views of Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Himal. The route combines the very popular Ghorepani and Poon Hill trail with an off-the-beaten-path experience taking you up to the amazing Muldai viewpoint. As you're going off-the-beaten-path, you'll have one night in a more rustic accommodation in Dobato.
The 8-day version of this Nepal adventure takes you up to Namche Bazaar, a traditional Sherpa village and unofficial capital of the Khumbu region. Visit Sagarmatha National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—along with alpine forest, Buddhist sites, and, of course, panoramic snow-capped views of the Himalayan peaks.
From the top of Pikey Peak in the lower Everest region, enjoy one of the best views in Nepal. A bold statement, indeed, but Edmund Hillary himself claimed it his favorite view of Everest. This trek will take you through a variety of terrain and through villages where you'll stay overnight in local teahouses. You will also have time to explore the eclectic bustle of Kathmandu and learn about the rich traditions of the Newar people.
