What Our Clients Say About Us
Places to visit in Nepal
Newari traders from the Kathmandu Valley established Bandipur as a hub on the Indo- Tibet road in the late 18th century, bringing with them the rich architectural heritage which endures in the town to this day. Bypassed by the main Pokhara...
Bardia National Park
Bardia National Park Bound by the Karnali River and the Churia range of the Siwalik Hills in south-western Nepal, parts of the 374-sq-mile (968-sq-km) Bardia National Park were originally a royal hunting reserve. Today it’s the largest an...
Another memorable trip out of Kathmandu is the one to Boudhanath, whose whitewashed stupa, with its trademark piercing eyes and strings of prayer flags fluttering from a spectacularly gilded tower, is the largest in Nepal. The monument sta...
Chitwan National Park
Chitwan National Park Elephant safaris are the big selling point of the fabulous Chitwan National Park, in the far south of Nepal near the Indian border. Sitting astride a swaying, soft-footed pachyderm, you’ll stand a much better chance ...
Kathmandu A sprawling modern city of nearly a million inhabitants, the Nepali capital can feel overwhelmingly crowded and chaotic on first impressions. But head for its ancient core, where the Shah and Malla kings erected their resplenden...
Kathmandu Valley: Patan & Bhaktapur
Separated from Kathmandu by the Bagmati River, Patan (also called Lalitpur or Manigal) is the Kathmandu Valley’s second largest town, boasting an even greater concentration of religious monuments than the capital. Most of them are grouped ...
Lumbini Nepal’s most important historical site and one with profound religious significance is Lumbini, birthplace of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. Just shy of the Indian border and well within the steamy terai, Lumbini is one of...
Nagarkot and Dhulikhel
Kathmandu itself doesn’t boast noteworthy Himalayan views – mainly because of its location in a hill-rimmed valley. So unless you’re prepared to hike among or fly by the great mountains, the best option is to stay at nearby Nagarkot. Situ...
Not far from Boudhanath, on the banks of the Bagmati River to the east of Kathmandu stands Pashupatinath, Nepal’s holiest Shiva temple. Hindus from across the country converge here during important festivals, when the cremation ghats in fr...
Pokhara Pokhara is the only town in Nepal that could be described as a ‘resort’. Lying 123 miles (198km) west of the capital along the Prithvi Highway, it owes its popularity to the magical view of Machapuchare (literally ‘Fish Tail’) ref...
On a hilltop overlooking the western outskirts, Swayambhunath (colloquially known as ‘the Monkey Temple’ for its resident population of macaques) has been sacred since the beginning of written history – and probably well before. A magnific...
Former capital of the powerful Magar kingdom, Tansen (also known as Palpa) is a medieval Crowsnest town clustered on a hilltop beside the Kali Gandaki river in south-central Nepal. The splendid architecture of its old quarter – a warren o...
The Annapurna Region
The mighty Annapurna Himal, nearly 25 miles (40km) across and with nine massive peaks, virtually bisects the vast 2,945-sq-mile (7,629-sq-km) Annapurna Conservation Area (ACA) which has long been home to some of the country’s most popular ...
Undoubtedly the easiest and quickest route to the world’s highest mountain summits is by flying to them. At the crack of dawn each morning during the tourist season, a fleet of small, 16-seater aircraft depart Kathmandu’s airport for a sce...
Mountain Biking in Nepal
Nepal’s extremes of terrain, from the pancake-flat terai to its muscular foothills and beyond, lends itself to both easy-going and spectacular mountain biking. The hills around Kathmandu and Pokhara generally attract fitter and more physic...
Paragliding in Nepal
In recent years, Pokhara has emerged as Nepal’s paragliding centre. Today it is reputedly one of the world’s top five tandem locations for the sport. The easy charms of Phewa Lake and generally reliable, stable thermals anchored to jaw-dro...
Rafting in Nepal
From the mighty Himalayas descend several vigorous rivers so it’s no surprise that Nepal has some of the world’s best whitewater rafting. The post-monsoon swell of early autumn followed by the late spring / early summer snowmelt mean most ...
