Join us in February 2019 for an exciting 10-day plant-hunting and cultural trek in the remote Lamjung and Kaski regions of northern Nepal. While our maximum altitude will be 3,400m we enjoy amazing views of the high mountains, including Annapurna and Manaslu. We will be collecting plants and seeds for Garden in the Himalayas and studying the montane habitat.
We 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. The trek starts from Pokhara on February 12th. Please call or email for full details and a dossier.
