Tour Description:

In the morning you will be picked up at your hotel. From your hotel it is a 40 minute drive to Hemja, a small village northwest of Pokhara. In Hemja we leave the road and start our hike to Astam. Astam is located approximately 20 kilometres from Pokhara at an altitude of 1600 metres. The hike to Astam will take us approximately 2 hours. Astam was founded around 300 years ago when the Adhikari family decided to settle in Nepal. Presently the 7th generation of settlers is living in Astam.

Astam is located on a small ridge, allowing the visitor a 360 degree panorama of the Annapurna and Manaslu mountain range, as well as Pokhara Valley. Astam nowadays has been turned into an eco-village where much attention as paid to sustainability. Our lunch will be prepared on bio-gas with locally grown foods. You as a tourist have a chance to visit the farmlands and participate in any activities that may take place on the land.

In the village there is a good chance of spotting some Himalayan bird such as the Red Vented Bulbul and the Scarlet Minivet. Throughout the year there is also a good chance to spot the beautifully coloured butterflies of Nepal.

After having enjoyed our lunch and exploring the surroundings of Astam we will head back to Pokhara.
