TRIP CHANGES FOR 2018:
Due to extensive road construction and safety concerns regarding driving conditions, from 1st January 2018 we will unfortunately no longer be able to visit Nuwakot and will instead stay in Pataleban. See itinerary for more details.
This trip has plenty of variety to enable you to experience all aspects of the country:, from religious sights, hiking to stunning viewpoints, exploring ancient trading towns and white water rafting.
The wonderful, warm, welcoming people of Nepal are one of the reasons travellers tend to return to this fascinating country again and again.
Witness the resilience of Nepal following the devastating earthquake of 2015 and see how the country is rebuilding itself on walking tours of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur.
Stay in lesser known places such as Namobuddha and Balthali and discover these hidden gems far removed from the bustle of the capital.
There are some long travel days on roads that seem to be permanently under construction. What looks like a short distance on a map can take an unexplainably long time to complete. Plenty of patience (and maybe some good podcasts at the ready) will go a long way toward your enjoyment of the journey.
This trip does not go to high altitude, so if you were hesitant to explore Nepal because for this reason you should have little trouble acclimatising on this tour.
As there as an included rafting activity, please speak to your leader in advance if you are not a confident swimmer. There is also the option to sit out this activity and instead spend time at the campsite.
While at the Trisuli river we have an included night of camping. This is at a permanent campsite where tents, mats and sleeping bags provided and toilet facilities are basic.
Outside of the main towns Nepal can be a quiet place, with few "tourist" attractions and options for organised activities. There is plenty of time for your own exploration or relaxation. Don't expect each day to be action packed, but be ready to seek out your own, more simple cultural experiences.
As we stay in some locations where there are few options for eating out, some meals may be set menus rather than being able to choose from a variety of options.

Good introduction to the Kathmandu region and its culture. Tour doesn't cover a vast area (minimal travel time) - relaxed pace. Highlights are Bhaktapur and rafting. Visibility (and therefore scenery) very seasonal.

This trip was an amazing experience. Everything was very well organized and includes a lot of various activities. We had Bipin as our wonderful guide who taught us a lot about nepalese culture. To get a first impression of Nepal, this is definitly the best trip to do. I'd highly recommend to do the Everest scenic flight, it is absolutely worth it!
