Annapurna Luxury Lodge

An ideal introduction to trekking in Nepal while staying at high quality Ker and Downey lodges in the Annapurna region.

Our Annapurna Luxury Lodge trek is the ultimate way of exploring Nepal in style while staying in the comfortable lodges of the Annapurna region; they are at a standard far better than anything else available in the area. The Ker and Downey lodges provide the highest level of service whilst on trek with landscaped gardens, comfortable lounges and bedrooms including hot showers and western toilets.

The trail between lodges takes you through beautiful Nepalese villages with spectacular views of the Annapurna region. This trek is a relatively gentle walk designed for the first time trekker in the low-lying hills fringing Pokhara. It is a culturally rich journey through Gurung villages with an ever increasing build-up of mountain views. We trek for six days through the Annapurna foothills with about five hours walking each day.
