Himalayan views, spiritual sites, charming villages and medieval cities

That's Nepal

Nepal at a glance

The Himalayas unquestionably offer some of the world’s finest hiking experiences, and this Nepal travel guide merely unveils the beauty of the picturesque and towering peaks that have beckoned adventurers for decades. Beyond being a trekking nirvana, the Himalayas and Nepal encompass a cultural richness that is truly special. Discover quaint villages where you can sit, share tea with locals, and immerse yourself in tales of myth, migration, and profound religious beliefs. Nepal’s charm lies in its enchanting fusion of Hindu and Buddhist mysticism, fostering a peaceful coexistence between two religions that, in many parts of the world, often cause unrest.

Nepal, often said to stand for ‘Never Ending Peace And Love,’ embraces this ethos, but its people are also steeped in pride, reminiscent of the resilience of the Gurkhas who have valiantly fought for all of us. Whether you choose to hike, bike, or raft your way through Nepal, the experience will inevitably transform you. Yet, traveling through Nepal requires patience, as things may not always unfold as anticipated. Embrace the journey, allowing the experience to unfold naturally.

Things To Do In Nepal

Sitting on the spine of the world, sandwiched between the superpowers of China and India, you’ll find humble Nepal.

We’re not meant to play favorites, but when you’ve been running Nepal tours for three decades, the country kind of gets under your skin. Picture a tiny Himalayan country where sherpas trudge the mountain paths and prayer flags crisscross the sky, their fluttering Buddhist mantras waving in the breeze. Follow our leaders up to Everest Base Camp, trek the rhododendron forests of the Annapurna, track rhinos through Chitwan National Park or stuff your face with momos in the warren-like streets of Kathmandu’s Thamel. Whichever type of Nepal trip you choose, we promise you one thing: you’ve never been anywhere like this.

  • Fly past Mount Everest

    Want to experience the majestic might of Mt. Everest but don’t fancy one of the most challenging treks in the world? Here’s the answer. Yes, you can fly over the Himalayas, soaking up views of 29,000 feet Everest, as your pilot tells you all about the spiritual significance of each Himalayan peak. You’ll never forget panoramas like these.

  • Admire temples of Kathmandu

    Kathmandu and its surrounding valley are home to a gobsmacking amount of sacred temples. From the magnificent architecture of Pashupatinath to the world-famous Tibetan Buddhist site of Bodhnath Stupa, temple-hoppers and culture-vultures will be in heaven in this valley.

  • Go paragliding in Pokhara

    The best views of Nepal are, of course, from way up high in the sky, which is why paragliding is such a popular pastime here. Pokhara is one of the best paragliding locations in the world, where you can soar over the valley, its lake and forestlands in tandem with a skilled pilot. It’s affordable, too.

  • Enjoy a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park

    In the lowlands of central Nepal you’ll find Chitwan National Park, a biodiverse haven for rare animals such as the Bengal tiger and the one-horned rhino. Take a jungle safari and you can spot these majestic beasts alongside elephants, thousands of brilliantly bright birds, crocs and deer.

  • Immerse into the local culture with a Panauti Homestay

    A Panauti Homestay is the perfect way to experience the warm hospitality of the Nepalese people, where you can meet local families, uncover their traditions and enjoy some of the delicious local food.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit Italy is during spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November), when the temperatures are comfortable and there are fewer crowds. Wildflowers in early April and rising temperatures through to the end of June are a real draw.
