Women’s Trekking Adventure Annapurna

This is a once in a life time women’s trekking adventure. Led by a female world record adventurer and Everest summiteer, Holly Budge and lead trekking guide, Shera Sherpa.

It’s a pretty unique and yet perfect opportunity to join a team of like-minded ladies all sharing a passion for adventure.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek is an exciting journey, with dramatic gorges, Buddhist temples, the turquoise Marshyangdi River, picturesque farming villages and around every corner, a different view of the Annapurna summits. The Thorung La pass is one of the highlights, ascending steeply up to 5416m is no mean feat and the reward is the panoramic views of the mighty Himalayas. It’s a special trek as it offers such diversity in a relatively short space of time.

With Holly as the expedition leader female participation starts at the core of this adventure and through this we hope to encourage and inspire more women to pursue an adventurous life style.

There are 15 places available on this adventure. To secure your spot please follow the instructions in the Book Now section. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us at: hello@boundlessbetty.com

    Holly & Shera demonstrated the utmost level of professionalism and reliability during our
    entire trip, helping us with translations, coordinating our overnight stays, and Shera sharing
    his culture with us. We appreciated their knowledge, expertise, and positive attitude. I look
    forward to coming back to visit and working with them again!

    You could say Holly is a contradiction. A genuinely lovely human being, personable and
    down to earth, whilst performing superhuman acts on a world record breaking level. A
    talented lady, who generously shares her experiences of fearless challenges and
    environmental campaigns. Both an inspiring adventurer and artist, Holly is awesome, in the
    truest sense of the word.

For this expedition you will be required to obtain sufficient and appropriate insurance. A travel insurance policy that covers cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. Click here for further info.
You do need to have a fairly decent level of fitness for this trip as we will be doing a fair bit of hiking. We will stop for plenty of breaks but you need to be comfortable hiking for a full day (6+ hours) for multiple days. Prior to joining our expedition, please seek medical advice as well as medications for travel to Nepal. Further details here.

The first is: HOLLY BUDGE - WORLD RECORD ADVENTURER | EXPEDITION LEADER; Holly, a big mountain expedition leader, was quite literally on top of the world when she summited Mount Everest (8848m) last year. Her passion for adventure is evident with two world records under her belt so far, including being the first woman to skydive Everest and race semi-wild horses 1000 kms across Mongolia in just nine days. Holly is a passionate conservationist, founder of award-winning charity, How Many Elephants and an engaging motivational speaker. The Second: SHERA SHERPA LEAD TREKKING GUIDE; Shera Sherpa has a wealth of experience with over 22 years of working in the trekking and climbing industry in Nepal, Tibet and India. His extensive knowledge of the mountains is matched by his warm and charming manner. His passion is not only evident for the mountains but for fair and honest adventure. Shera is on a mission to help his village recover from the 2015 earthquake and this is where the idea for ‘Remote Sherpa Village Trek’ was born.
