An Example Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival in Nepal

Day 2: Australian Camp
- It’s time to leave Kathmandu behind and head to the Annapurna Base Camp (8 hours via private coach). Meet your porters here and then begin walking up towards the Australian Camp.
- To ensure you can slowly and safely acclimatize, it will be a gentle 90-minute hike through forests to a huge plateau where we will spend the night in mountain lodges. As the sun sets, enjoy stunning views over Himalayan Panoramas of the Annapurna Range, Machhapuchhare , Lamjung Himal and Manaslu Massif.
Day 3: Trek to Landruk

Day 6: Dobhan to Deurali
- Beyond Dobhan the trail crosses a stream and avalanche-chutes, then climb across the site of a former landslide.
- Trek into the forest to a small temple known as Baraha Than. To be respectful of local beliefs and traditions, climbers should not carry eggs or meat beyond this point.

Day 7: Annapurna Base Camp

Through discussion, listening and guided thought, participants can process their experiences, digest new ideas and consider what they have learned about themselves, each other, Nepal and its people during this once-in-a-lifetime expedition.

We enjoyed all the activities immensely, there was a huge range. The school we visited this time was brilliant, so well organised. The guides really tried hard to reference the aims of the trip. Peter was exceptional, he was kind and was very concerned that everyone was well and enjoying themselves. He was also very informative. The geography lecturer was exceptional and fitted the brief 110%!
I really enjoyed every part of The Learning Adventure as it helped me learn a lot of new interesting things and gave me an insight into business and how to make a start in it, particularly a start-up. Beginning with a short tour around Greater London informed our team about the historical context of the amazing business district and how it all started, and later on I found the start-up activity absorbing and interactive while the entrepreneur who talked to us about such things like career options helped a lot. Our guide was friendly and everything went smoothly. Thank you so much The Learning Adventure!
Our guides were remarkable in their care and concern. They appreciated our needs and requests as well as made the time to choose meaningful activities for us. Very well done.
Thanks for being fun, polite, and patient. We appreciated everything from bringing us on subways to public transport to ordering special food to being on time.
Thank you for making the trip such a wonderful memory.
The students got the chance to experience the environment of a corporate office which gave them an idea of what working life might be like in the future. The workshops and talk by the guest speaker gave the students insights into start-up businesses and ways in which they can seek support to be entrepreneurs. The students felt really inspired by the talk given by the young entrepreneur as having a young person speak to them about success helped the students to understand that they can have confidence in themselves and their futures. The students enjoyed the workshop where they were given the opportunity to work together and share creative thoughts about start-up ideas. Thank you for organising a really insightful, educational and fun-filled trip for our students. They really enjoyed it!
TLA [The Learning Adventure] was great about incorporating our requests for travel and including their own recommendations. As always, a true pleasure to work with. Their attention to details is truly amazing.
Health & safety were well taken care of. None of the travellers got sick because of food on the trip, and an effort was always made to ensure the cleanest available restroom. We were always advised to wear seatbelts on the bus when on the highway. The food in Shanghai was a good variety of both dishes and cuisine, and I really appreciated how much effort Caroline put into making sure our 素菜宝宝 had enough to eat.
Hassle free for teachers! The Learning Adventure is experienced in running trips for schools – they know all the drills, e.g. first-aid, insurance, risk assessments, visa application, diet requirements, you name it.
Fantastic! Helpful, patient, passionate; an ambassador for her country - she created a great impression on the students. Very personable.
I just wanted to thank you for putting together such a great trip for our students. The feedback from the staff was excellent and they were particularly impressed by the communication in the build-up to the trip, along with the local knowledge of the guide, the range of activities, and the clear contingency planning when the weather didn't cooperate. I am very keen that we repeat this trip next year…
