Nepal Encompassed SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Kathmandu is like an alluring whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Almost overwhelming, its charm and history peaks out from the most unexpected places rendering most visitors enamoured.
An ancient town located close to Kathmandu city, Bhaktapur is like stepping back in time with its heritage buildings, cobblestones, shrines and car-free streets
Nuwakot is home to breathtaking mountain vistas, a fascinating bazaar and the Famous Farm, which sits on a terraced hillside with charming accommodation and organic fields.
Bandipur is a delightful Nepalese town with traditional wooden houses, narrow streets and daily life spilling out into the streets, the same as it has been for centuries.
Nestled in a valley and sitting on a lake so still it reflects the mountains, Pokhara is the gateway to the Annapurna Ranges and Nepal's second largest city.
Home to tigers, one-horned rhinos, leopards and hundreds of other species, beautiful Chitwan National Park covers hundreds of square kilometres of forests, grasslands and flood plains.
With the two sister cities of Bhaktapur and Lalitpur (Patan) close by, Kathmandu has a wealth of sights to explore, markets to discover and places to relax in.

Nepal Encompassed, April 2014
While I quite liked Padam as a person, I was a little disappointed with his level of enthusiasm with regard to leading the group. Sometimes it appeared that he was disinterested and to a degree, jaded, with the tourism industry as a whole. Maybe this was because it was his last tour of the season, but if that was the case, then he should have just made it not so obvious to the group. Sometimes it was like he was there just for his own means and not the groups.

Padam was a fantastic leader, so knowledgeable and interesting - he really made the trip for us. I felt like I really experienced the country through a locals eyes and was made to feel most welcome by padam. Padam was so passionate and enthusiastic and we felt extremely lucky to have had such an incredible leader.
