Begin with an exploration of Nepal's ancient historical fabric, including the famous Pasupatinath temple sacred to both Hindu and Buddhists, Boudhananth Stupa, Sywambhunath and Kathmandu's Durbar-square. You'll also visit Patan – hailed as the 'city of art and beauty' – plus Bhaktapur, famed for its traditional wood carving. At the end of your trip, there is time in the beautiful nature-filled city of Pokhara, home to the World Peace Stupa – plus a chance to go boating on Fewa Lake.

Trekking days put you inside Nepal's unforgettable landscape, with day hikes to Chisapani, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Panauti plus the sacred Buddhist site of Namo, where lord Buddha reputedly saved the life of a tiger dying from hunger by giving him his flesh.

Transferring to the Royal Chitwan National Park, you will explore one of Asia's best wildlife havens. A combination of jungle and river safaris offer a chance to see rhinoceros, four species of deer, two types of crocodiles, sloth bear, leopards, Royal Bengal Tiger – plus, with the help of an expert guide, over 450 species of exotic birds.

Too many memorable moments to mention - the people, the splendour of the mountain views, relaxing in the Garden of Dreams, the bustle of the streets of Thamel, and sights in and around Kathmandu. The trekking, the sight of Rhino, Crocodiles and lovely Sambar Deer at Chitwan. Pasaputinath and the atmosphere around the riverside ghats. Read full review

Nepal is a very fascinating. It's chaotic, loud, polluted, crazy in the cities and quiet, pure and serene in the countryside. It is fascinating that you can travel from the hot, flat jungle with amazing wildlife to towns with palaces and loads of cultural sites or to snow-covered, cool mountains in less than a day.

Chitwan NP... an encounter with a rhino while on a walk. Pretty amazing watching one of these animals come out of the bush, and your there with your guide and helper, each with nothing more than sticks, looking at these large endangered species... won't forget that! Read full review

It was wonderful to walk through out the lovely villages meeting people and also the beauty of the countryside and experiencing breath taking views of the mountains. Trekking was the ideal way to experience all of this. My guide was perfect and a sensitive host and along with our porter I felt like a little family at the end. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet and people

Our trekking company is wholly committed to responsible tourism. On our treks & tours, tourism helps improve the standard of living for the local people by generating income for the local community through purchasing of local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities.

We employ well-trained & experienced local guides and hire local porters whose load limit is 20-25kg. Our guides will give a briefing about responsible tourism e.g. rubbish disposal, giving food scraps to domestic animals, paying the porters to carry out trash, using a fire pit when camping, not picking flowers, using kerosene instead of firewood, avoiding bathing/washing clothes in streams, using local tea houses or camping sites. In addition the small group size of 4-10 people helps to minimise the impact on the environment.

On this trek, we stay at local tea houses and lodges operated by local communities such as Chisapani trekking lodge, Balthali Resort and High-view Resort. These lodges minimise the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood and disposing of their rubbish appropriately.

Our trekking company provides financial donations for the local school (US $2 per visitor) & health post (US $3 per visitor). We provide educational materials for students such as copies, pencils, ball pens and sports equipment (foot balls, basket balls), and provide equipment & medicines for the health post such as tablets, eye drops, high-altitude tablets, plasters and bandages. We also support the Kvresthali Women society with financial donations (US $5 per visitor) which provides education for impoverished adult women and provides funds for goat and vegetables farming and road repair.

On this trip, our guests will have the opportunity to give donations to these causes, and visit the Kavresthali Women Society to observe their activities.
