What you'll do

In February 2020 there will be a fantastic 10-14 day plant-hunting and cultural trek in the remote Lamjung and Kaski regions of western Nepal. Our trail is carefully tailored to be OFF THE BEATEN TRACK. The maximum altitude will be 3,400m with views of the high mountains, including Annapurna and Manaslu. We will spend three or four days at a time trekking and camping in the pine and rhododendron forests, and then take a rest day at a mountain village, helping the villagers with whatever seasonal tasks they are undertaking and joining in with local life. The local culture is both hospitable and fascinating - we’ll be experiencing it from the inside rather than as a tourist. We will be collecting plants and seeds for Garden in the Himalayas and studying the montane habitat. The expedition promises to be the adventure of a lifetime. The trek starts from Pokhara between 6th and 8th February.

Purna And Aneta

I was born in Tanchok, Nepal and live in London where I run my gardening business since 2007. I've been leading Botanical Expeditions for the Garden in the Himalayas twice a year, for the last 6 years in the Annapurna Region. Ultimate vision is a long-term awareness project that preserves native plants and educates the locals about the importance of protecting their natural habitat. I believe that nature (and human spirit) has no boundaries and what is saved and nourished in one part of the world will benefit the whole Mother Earth.
