Culture and walking in Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley

We think it's a bit of a pity that many visitors to Nepal head quickly to the mountains and miss out on what is close at hand in the Kathmandu valley.

Nepal first opened its doors to foreign visitors in the 1950s when mountaineers came to conquer the world’s highest peaks and explorers came in search of the yeti. It continues to be the trekking and climbing mecca of the world, but Nepal’s wildlife and rich cultural traditions offer plenty of alternatives away from the mountains - though their snow-capped peaks are rarely far from view.

The lakeside town of Pokhara is the traditional jumping off point for treks in the stunning Annapurna range of Nepal’s Himalaya. Our private treks between cosy hillside lodges are considered 'easy' in trekking terms but the views are still nothing short of spectacular. They’re ideal for active families too.

No longer the preserve of mountaineers the Everest region can be explored on a non-technical but demanding trek to Everest Base Camp. The challenge can be made a little easier by staying in comfy mountain lodges and our private guides ensure you ascend safely at your own pace. For a more leisurely view of the highest mountain in the world we can arrange a scenic light aircraft flight, or helicopter flight to Base Camp accompanied by an Everest summiteer.

Safaris in Nepal

Though it’s relatively little known, Nepal is home to a wonderful variety of animal and plant life. Wildlife here tends to be shy but jeep, elephant, canoe and walking safaris with expert guides in Chitwan and Bardia National Parks can reveal large mammals such as Indian one-horned rhinoceros and Asian elephant, and occasionally tiger. Bird life includes sought after species such at Bengal Florican and Ibisbill.

When to go to Nepal

Generally the best time to visit Nepal is between September and May. The climate is affected by altitude and there are local variations and exceptions that we will be happy to discuss with you when planning your trip.  Read more about when to visit Nepal or alternatively get in touch to discuss ideas and the best timing for your tour of Nepal.

Where to stay

Numerous new hotels have opened in Kathmandu and Pokhara in the last couple of years but many of these lack character and tend to cater to groups. Where possible we use smaller properties where you'll receive great personal service, heritage hotels and those in quiet locations. In more rural areas we can recommend small, simple but clean and comfortable places where you stay close to local life and in the foothills of the Annapurna and the Everest region we offer treks between 'luxury' lodges.

Whether you want a mountain adventure or to follow more cultural pursuits, Natural High can create a holiday to Nepal to suit your tastes and interests. What many visitors think will be their one trip of a lifetime all too often turns into a long-term love affair with Nepal and its people. Get in touch and we'll be pleased to plan and book your trip
