South America Panorama

Having just arrived back from our South America trip, we thought we drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our journey. Everything was as we expected and more!! The itenery itself was outstanding, the scenery and sites ... well photos just don't do it justice! The hotels we stayed in where better than we expected ... the tour guides where fantastic and very knowledgable. The tours and all the pick ups and transfers where spot on. There is now doubt in our mind to use World Expeditions again soon, it is now just a matter of finding the time (and of course a little money). Antarctica looks great!!!

Spring Trekking in the Himalayas

28/12/2016

For those after warmer daytime temperatures, blossoming flora and generally stable weather, spring is the ideal season for trekking in Nepal and Bhutan.

Spring is considered to be one of the best seasons to trek and climb in the Himalaya. There are slightly less trekkers compared to the autumn months, Everest Base Camp will be full of life due to the climbing season and the trails over high mountain passes such as the Cho La, Larkya La and Thorong La in Nepal and Shinge La in Bhutan are clear. Add to that temperatures of 16-23 degrees C during the day in the upper hills & lower mountain ranges and warmer nights - and your Himalayan trekking adventure is complete!

If you get inspired by nature in bloom, you'll be delighted to discover that the Himalaya has the highest diversity of rhododendrons in the world. Eye-catching and elegant, at lower elevations the flowers are a vibrant red but as altitude increases the colour begins shifting to pink, gradually becoming pure white – a spectacle not to be missed. 

Recommended Bhutan and Nepal treks in spring

>> See rhododendrons in full bloom on the Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek in March and April.

>> Encounter yak herders as they establish their summer encampments on trails high above the Paro & Thimbu valleys on Bhutan Dragon Kingdom.

>> Challenge yourself with the Holy Grail of trekking on Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar.

>> Follow forest trails, alpine meadows with spring flowers and high passes on the Bhutan High Trails via Laya.

>> Explore Everest Base Camp, cross high glacial passes and enjoy impressive views from Gokyo Ri in spring on our Everest Circuit & the Cho La trek.
