    Day 1 - Arrive

    Arrive into the Kathmandu International Airport and after picking up your bags and exiting the building you’ll be greeted by one of our Five14 staff, holding our signature sign for you to recognize. We’ll take you in our 6 seater jeep to our bed & breakfast. The bed & breakfast manager will welcome you, show you to your room, and share a brief orientation with you. Then just relax for the rest of the day or night while enjoying some amazing drinks from our cafe!

    Day 2 - Orientation and Tour

    Wake up and order a complimentary breakfast from our cafe. Afterwards, you’ll meet with your guide for some basic trek preparation. Your guide will inform you of the local customs, history of the village area, show you the mapped out trekking route, and go over a simple packing list. The rest of the day we'll take you on a tour of Kathmandu, where you'll learn about the culture, religion, and social issues the people of Nepal are tackling.

    Day 3 - 10 Helambu Trek

    We’ll leave Kathmandu early in the morning to ride for an hour in a private vehicle to a place called Sundarijal and begin trekking to Chisapani from there.

    See the interactive map below for a detailed description of the trek.

    Day 11 - Rest and Debrief

    After eating a complimentary flavorful breakfast back at our cafe, you’ll meet with one of our staff to share quick feedback on your experience. The rest of the day you’ll have time to participate in a nearby day long adventure of mountain biking, bungee jumping, or shopping for memorable souvenirs and gifts.

    Day 12 - Depart

    Whenever your scheduled departure flight is, our company driver will drop you off at the Kathmandu International Airport a few hours beforehand. You’ll be able to say your last goodbyes to our staff or the new friends you’ve made during your stay and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to leave well!
