Kalinchowk Multi-Sport Adventure - 8 Days - Oct 5 - Oct 12, 2019

Traveler: Phil C. - Local specialist: Erin Green

An absolute trip of a lifetime! Our trip was away from the crowds and as such, there was the odd challenge but would highly recommend getting off the path well trodden. We didn't see a single other tourist for the duration of our trip and hence saw the real Nepal, right up close to the border with Tibet. Staying in tents did require more logistics than tea houses but we did feel much more engaged with the scenery and that blissful feeling of isolation every morning. It also felt more of an expedition and brought us closer to our wonderful Nepalese support team; certainly when we were all huddled together in an abandoned farm shack around the fire as the thunder storm lashed against the roof! Day 3 of the Trek was especially memorable and the website was right to mention the steep drops and hard climb but it was pretty awesome. The mountain biking on Day 4 was amazing but challenging for those without much experience and the uphill section needed a solid level of fitness (worth considering bypassing with the jeep for some) but two thirds of the route is downhill and very exhilarating. Even our guide was pumped after it! And finally the white water rafting was brilliant and a perfect end to a real adventure. Our guide was absolutely faultless from start to finish and if you want an accessible to all adventure, I cannot recommend this trip enough

I was so looking forward to meeting you Phil, and Iike I said, everyone in the office here wanted to go on your adventure too! I'm so glad it worked so well after our thoughtful planning. I know the adventure wasn't always easy, and your feedback is taken onboard. You all did great, and it was fun hearing your stories at the end of the trip when you got back to Kathmandu- what a boisterous group! I've shared your feedback with Suman and the team. We're all so appreciative! Hope to see you back here one day!
