Api Nampa Trekking Trail


17 Days

Maximum People


Minimum Age


Api Nampa trekking is a newly discovered trekking trail which was founded in 2015 AD. Camping for a couple of days is required, packages offer food and tents. Trekking days will be 9 to 10 days, 2 long days driving, 3 days short driving and domestic flight to/from Dhangadi (starting and ending point is Kathmandu).

Api Base Camp Trek is located in far-western Nepal. The region is protected by Api Nampa Conservation. The tallest mountains are Api (7132m), Nampa (6929m) and Bobaye (6808m) and other various snow-capped mountains yet to be named surround the valley. Api Nampa Trekking offers spectacular views of sky touching peaks along with a few glacial lakes.

It is a fairly new trekking trail which started back in 2015 AD. It is the best trip for people interested in discovering the mountains in a more intimate setting. It receives fewer tourists since the trail is still new and has yet to gain popularity like the other trails. The first thing you’ll need to do is fly to Dhangadhi from Kathmandu. The flight is only an hour and 15 minutes long, so you will have plenty of time to explore the city.

Local buses, taxicabs are available if you wish to go around town. Api Nampa trekking consists of a 4-day drive in total, 2 days on the way to and 2 days on the way back. The first car drive would be an 8-hour drive from Dhangadi to Nepalgunj then another 2-hour car trip from Nepalgunj to Chisapani, where the trek starts. This particular trail is in one the most remote region, remains untouched by the modern-day.
