Nepal

Epic scenery and a fascinating clash of cultures

Why Nepal?

Sandwiched between mighty neighbours, with China and Tibet to the north and India to the south, what Nepal lacks in size it more than makes up for in interest. Within its tiny confines you’ll find some of the world’s most sublime mountain scenery, an incredible melting pot of cultures and stunning landscapes.

Nepal first opened its doors to foreign visitors in the 1950s when mountaineers arrived 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.

Where should I go?

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 will ensure you ascend safely at your own pace. For a less strenuous view of the highest mountain in the world we can arrange a scenic light aircraft or helicopter flight to Base Camp accompanied by an Everest summiteer.

Safaris in Nepal

Though relatively unknown, Nepal is home to a fascinating variety of animal and plant life. The Chitwan and Bardia National Parks feature some of the region’s most charismatic large mammals including the Indian one-horned rhinoceros, Asian elephant, and occasionally tiger. Bird life includes sought after species such as Bengal Florican and Ibisbill.

Wherever you go, Nepal has a unique ability to captivate visitors. What is intended as a ‘trip of a lifetime’ all too often turns into a long-term love affair with this small country and its big-hearted people. To kick-start your adventure, please get in touch.
