Natural History of the Patagonia Cordillera: Argentina and Chile


Our group of Patagonian explorers are about to embark on their final backpack trip, a 15-day excursion from Cochamó, Chile.

They will trek from a coastal fjord to the continental divide, through mature Valdivian rainforest and forests of higher elevation Fitzroya cupressoides (“alerce”—similar to giant redwoods). During this leg of the journey, the students will be resupplied by packhorses!

  5. trekking in Nepal is unlike anywhere in the Himalayas complemented by clear air, views of green farmland belts, forests, blooming rhododendrons, riverside walks, and most importantly because it is trekking in the ambiance of world’s highest mountain Mt. Everest . Trekking has been the most popular holiday activity in Nepal as there are the best and varied trekking routes because elevation of Nepal ranges from 60 meters above the sea level to highest, i.e. the top of the world, Mt. Everest standing tall at 8850 meters. trekking in Nepal varies from easy and short some hour’s day hike to moderate and even challenging and adventurous long treks. You can select your ideal trekking in Nepal package that matches perfectly with your fitness level, holiday period, previous trekking experience and interest. Trek through the great Himalayan trails, you will discover Nepal is the most beautiful country blessed with unlimited natural splendor and adventure opportunity.

  7. trekking in Nepal can be enjoyed all the year around, but the best season to trek in most of the trails of Everest, Annapurna and Langtang, Manaslu, area is spring (March to May) and autumn (mid September to December) as the weather is best and you can get clear views of mountain in these time of year. You can trek along the rain shadow area like Upper Mustang and Lower Mustang during monsoon season too. Monsoon does not affect these areas as these are rain shadow area.

  10. holiday activity in the country. The two classic trekking routes either to Everest base camp or the Annapurna circuit are not easy and the challenge you'll face on either route will have a lasting effect. The Manaslu route trek around the world's eighth largest mountain is more remote but no less beautiful passing through stunning bamboo forests, villages filled with prayer flags and culminating with spectacular views from Larkya La. Mustang is an easier cultural trek, suitable for those with good general fitness but not necessarily any previous trekking experience. The language, culture and tradition of the Mustang region are still mostly Tibetan making this one of the most culturally interesting treks. There are shorter treks up the Langtang Valley and Helambu which are still hard work but also deeply rewarding. They generally begin in Kathmandu, leading through large grazing areas covered in flowers, dotted with stone huts used for butter making, Sherpa, Tamang villages and the homes of yak herders, right up to the Tibetan border.

  17. I did Everest Base Camp Trek in April 2016 The organizer/owner Sanjib was excellent! Collected me from the airport as well as keeping contact with me throughout the trip up Everest to make sure I was ok. The views were breath taking. Truly the chance in a lifetime, I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much without the company of a brilliant tour guide that Resham was. Made the journey enjoyable and was a great help. I'd recommend this trip and the company Nepal Planet treks and Expedition to anyone. Truly breathe taking scenery. I am also excited to do Annapurna next year with them again.
    Thank u Sanjib and Nepal planet Treks and exp we are defiantly back to Nepal
    Namaste !!
