Marvels Around Mythical Kathmandu

The local markets of Kathmandu offer up a culturally enriching glimpse of Nepalese culture and artisanal craft

In October, we’re embarking on our second fitness retreat. This time, we’re headed to Nepal, the adventure playground for lovers of the great outdoors. The 8D7N journey includes a 3D2N hike through upland trails, knife-edge mountain passes, pilgrimage sites and charming hill villages; sharing the camaraderie of the entire experience with like-minded trekkers along the way.

A smorgasbord of outdoor activities awaits, such as canyon-swinging, white water rafting, bungee jumping and rock climbing. You also have the option of a two-day extension to Pokhara at the tail end of the trip.

The idyllic lakeside spot is ideal for recharging your batteries before you return home. Featuring short day hikes — like the famous Begnas Thulokote route that Prince Charles himself completed in 1980 — and visits to cultural sights, all against the backdrop of the Annapurna Himalaya, it’s set to be a sweet end to this mountain kingdom escape.
