Explore Himalaya Team at Annapurna Royal Camp

Explore Himalaya Team had an official retreat at Annapurna Royal Camp in Begnas Lake from 25th to 27th January 2019. The two nights/three days’ break was one of the regular team building and motivation travels of Explore Himalaya. Beside refreshment, the retreat was also aimed at familiarizing Annapurna Royal Camp, which is the latest exclusive property of Explore Himalaya.    

The Explore Himalaya Team Retreat started with an exciting 6 hours’ highway drive to Annapurna Royal Camp via Prithivi Highway on 25th January.  After about 6 hours’ drive, the team of 23 members reached the Camp at 6 o’ clock in the evening. The team accommodated at the fully furnished luxury tents of the Camp. On the second day, the team had a hiking trip to Lekhnath museum. The hiking which started at 9:30 after breakfast lasted for about 4 hours. The hiking started through the community forest, which lies just below the Camp. The team continued through Ban Pokhari, the first neighboring community and a crossroad overlooking Begnas Lake towards northeast and Maidi Lake towards southwest. Upon reaching a junction at Lamshara, they took a local trail to Lekhnath Museum.

Following the uphill stony steps past the local settlements and savoring the amazing view of the lake, the team reached Lekhnath Museum at the hilltop at about midday. Then, the hike continued through the downhill trail and ended at the Camp at about 2 o’ clock in the afternoon. After lunch, the rest of the day was a free activity day. In the evening, the team had a campfire night out with live musical show. The last day’s delight was a short hiking of about 30 minutes to Begnas Damsite and boating of 20 minutes to the Camp bank, which lies right below the Camp. The morning’s activity concluded after the team climbed uphill through forest trail for about 20 minutes to reach the Camp at 10 o’ clock. After taking lunch, the team left the Camp at 12:30. Retracing the same highway route, they reached Kathmandu at about 6 o’clock, which brought the three days’ retreat to an end.  

The three days’ trip gave Explore Himalaya Team a full-fledged opportunity to enjoy the wilderness of Begnas Lake, get the real insights of the pristine mid hill villages and have hands-on experience of Annapurna Royal Camp. As a cherry on top, the trip also allowed them to have the fondest memories with their team members that will be treasured for a long time.
