Home to Everest, Annapurna, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri and many other fabled peaks over 8,000m, Nepal has long been every mountaineer’s dream-destination. Largely without roads, Nepal is best explored on foot, and has rightly earned a reputation for outstanding trekking. Less appreciated, perhaps, are the outstanding river-rafting opportunities, superb wildlife in Nepal’s national parks and some of the virtually undiscovered border regions including the mysterious kingdom of Mustang.
Kathmandu is a fascinating mix of old cobbled squares lined with ancient temples, roadside bakeries and the chaos of hundreds of rickshaws, bicycles, and cows mingling with backpackers and Sherpas alike. Whether you are a serious climber or just drawn by the majesty of these mountains, Nepal’s dramatic scenery never fails to impress; nor do its people.
We offer a great variety of trekking routes and wildlife options, interesting pilgrimage itineraries, the best rafting and the most magical cultural sites in Nepal. On trek we can book you tents, tea houses or, in some places, luxury lodges. We work with an excellent in-country team and will ensure you get solid advice before you go and a first-class personal service throughout your stay.
