Description of Discover Nepal holiday, small group

You will travel as part of a small group on this two week Nepal holiday, discovering all aspects of Nepali life – from its bustling cities to its bloom-filled valleys.

Meeting your group in Kathmandu, you’ll have a two day locally-guided tour of the valley. You’ll visit Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath stupa and nearby Bhaktapur with its artisans, narrow alleyways, and community centric courtyards before heading to scenic Nagarkot overnight where you can wake up to watch the sunrise over the Himalayas.

There is just time to head back to Kathamandu and Patan city to see some of the finest palaces and temples in the whole of Nepal before leaving city life behind for the wilds of the royal Chitwan national park.

In Chitwan, you'll have two days to explore, including a full day safari in the park which is one of the best places in Nepal for spotting rhinos and tigers in the wild. In the evenings there'll be time to relax and experience some local culture such as a Tharu Stick Dance demonstration. Leave some space on your memory card however because you're next destinations are Lumbini (the birth place of Buddha) and Pokhara, one of the most picturesque parts of Nepal. Here you’ll spend an afternoon boating on beautiful lake Phewa, soaking in the magnificent reflections of Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Peak) and the Annapurna range.

No trip to Nepal would be complete without putting on the walking boots and heading out on a trek and so we've included five whole days of trekking, staying in well-equipped lodges along the way. The trails are breathtakingly scenic, passing through rhododendron forests, sub-tropical valleys, and charming villages inhabited by the local Gurung and Magars people. If timings allow, you will also get to see the sunrise from Poon Hill. A mecca for photographers and one of Nepal's most famous view points, it offers panoramic vistas of the Himalayas and is not to be missed.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We have always believed in tourism that aims to have a low impact on the natural environment and local culture, generating income and employment for local people and promoting the conservation of local ecosystems. This is responsible tourism which is both ecologically and culturally sensitive. The locals have major roles to play in sustainable tourism, participating actively and taking responsibility in the industry. We encourage locals to sell local handicrafts or simply talk with tourists to give them an authentic image of the local culture.

Our guide will provide information on how to protect the environment e.g. do not drop litter, dispose of garbage in proper places like garbage boxes, establish fire point in camping treks/tours, if possible give food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a small extra amount to porters to bring back non-disposable items by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams etc. We take only small groups with a maximum of 16 people help to minimise our impact on the environment.

During this trek, trekkers will have the opportunity to give donations to the Annapurna conservation project which plays a vital role in environmental protection and community development in the Annapurna Area. The Annapurna Conservation Area supports high diversity of flora and fauna species. The area harbours rare and endangered wildlife species such as the Snow leopard, Musk deer, Tibetan argali, Impeyan pheasant and Tragopan pheasant. Annapurna conservation project (ACA) provides a large protected area with the entire habitat gradient from sub tropical Sal forests to perennial snow in which to maintain the biodiversity and integrity of the central Himalayas.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We try to maximise our contribution to the local community by hiring local familiar guide and porters with knowledge about local culture. We encourage all our clients to hire porters to give local people employment, this is a great way of directing money straight back into the local economy. Our porters are not allowed to carry more than 25kg. In this trek we stay at local lodges/teahouses operated by local people. All lodges/teahouses minimise the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood.

We are in partnership with registered charity organisation “Chhahari Group Nepal”, The organisation has been serving in Nepalese society since 2001. Most projects funded by them directly benefit the local community that has been affected by natural or political issues. Many other projects directly or indirectly benefit our citizens, e.g. orphanage home, community school, health camp, scholarship program etc. A current project involves helping to run a free community school for very poor families' children who can’t afford to send their kids to school.
