THE PERFECT HIMALAYAN TREK
Annapurna Base Camp (Sanctuary)
March 22nd - April 1th 2022
YOUR NEPAL ADVENTURE AWAITS
Join Inbody Expeditions on a journey to what has been aptly named the "Sanctuary" of the Annapurna Region. This 11-day adventure gives you the opportunity to experience the best mountain views in the Himalayas without having to climb to extreme elevations to experience them.
Our 8 days on the trail start along the banks of the Modi Khola River. We will traverse along steep canyon walls and hike through lush forest vegetation we didn't think of when we first pictured trekking around the tallest mountains in the world. Occasional glimpses of the majestic Himalayas will remind us of the giants that lay just around the corner.
Finally we arrive to Annapurna Base Camp. Feelings of joy and happiness overcome us as we sit mesmerized by our 360 degree view. We descend back into the canyons we came from with gentle footsteps and a light heart, amazed at our accomplishment we never thought possible.
INBODY EXPEDITIONS DISCOVERING NEPAL
Jon first journeyed to Nepal in 2010 after graduating from college. Originally drawn to the country for its world famous mountains and rivers he quickly fell in love with the nation and its people. Through exploring Nepal on foot via the trails and on rafts via the rivers he solidified his belief that this place truly is one of the wonders of the world. Although he returned home to the US after the guiding season, Nepal and its people had left a deep impression with Jon...he knew one day he would return to this incredible place.
It took Jon six years to make it back to Nepal. Although he had been away from the country for a while the impact it left on him never diminished. The hospitality of the locals he observed while over there was ingrained into his personality and practiced everyday in his guiding profession. Although he was getting pulled in many directions in life Jon knew that it was time to go back.
In the spring of 2016 Jon retuned to Nepal with his fiance, Elizabeth, and a group of friends and family to show them the Annapurna Region he has explored 6 years ago. The experience the group had convinced Jon and Elizabeth that this is a place the world needs to discover for themselves.
Working directly with their Nepali business parter, Kumar, Jon and Elizabeth continued to explore the different regions of Nepal. After seeing many places throughout the country they have hand picked their favorite destinations. Using these destinations they have created some "off the beaten path" itineraries that minimizes exposure in some of the more crowded areas and providing a more authentic Nepali experience.
You are invited to join Jon and Elizabeth on this magical journey. Namaste.

IT IS TIME TO CROSS NEPAL OFF YOUR BUCKET-LIST
We understand the complexity of life. Let us help you get started...
YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO GO TO NEPAL
Even if you are not an experienced world traveler, there is a good chance you have heard about the magic of Nepal. There is a good reason that trekking in the Himalayas is on almost everyone's "bucket-list" for places to see in their lifetime. The secret to making this happen is accepting that THERE IS NEVER AN EASY TIME to getaway...but if you don't start today you may never go.
More and more of our society is valuing experiences over money in their wallet. Sure there is a price tag associated with this adventure, but the costs of not going could be much greater. Do the research and ask yourself what your life dreams and happiness is worth. You are not getting any younger.
I AM TOO OLD TO DO THAT
You are only too old if you believe you are too old. One of our favorite clients is a woman in her early 70's (she recently completed the Everest Circuit with is). In fact many of clients range in age from their mid 40's to late 60's.
THERE IS NO WAY I CAN CARRY EVERYTHING I NEED
Luckily you don't have to. Trekking in Nepal involves employing the use of "porters." These strong individuals carry all of our overnight gear from lodge to lodge. This way we are free to carry only a small day pack with our water and other small personal day items.
I HAVE NEVER TRAVELED OUT OF THE COUNTRY
That's what we are here for. Many people on Inbody Expedition's trips have never traveled out of the country before. We are here for you and will help the intimidating decisions (like what to pack) manageable. With our help on this journey you may return home and realize you are capable of seeing the world although the only thing you need to do is close your eyes to see true beauty.
THE WORLD IS IN UNCERTAIN TIMES
You can now purchase travel insurance that lets you cancel your trip up to 48 hours before it starts for literally any reason at all. With Cancel for Any Reason you can commit to your dream trip now and have the confidence that your investment will be protected regardless of what happened in the future.
Experience the Power of the Himalayas
Pictures cannot fully capture the magic and power of these incredible mountains ...they must be seen first hand to truly experience.
Our itinerary gets you up close and personal with these world famous mountains in a way that few others get to experience.
