Why you'll love this trip
  • Witness world-class mountain scenery from a heavenly viewpoint, with a breathtaking, included Everest scenic flight.
  • Take a jeep safari with a local guide in Chitwan National Park, a beauty brimming with exotic birdlife and game - you may be lucky enough to spot rhinos or elusive leopards and tigers.
  • Explore Nepal's diverse architecture, from the stately Newari dwellings in Bandipur to the hill-perched Buddhist Peace Pagoda in laid back Pokhara.
  • Beginning and ending in Kathmandu, there's more than enough time to discover the Nepali capital's staggeringly rich cultural and artistic heritage.
  • This is the perfect trip for those who want a cultural insight into Nepal without strenuous trekking, with plenty of inclusions, as well as free time and comfortable accommodation in each destination.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Forget Me Not. Donations help them provide job training, work experience and employment opportunities for young people who’ve grown up in institutionalised Nepalese orphanages.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip does not go to high altitude, so if this was keeping you back from visiting Nepal in the past, this trip is for you.
  • While on a map we aren't travelling particularly far, the reality of road travel in Nepal is that things always take longer than you expect. Some roads will be bumpy, dusty, or even unexpectedly blocked requiring reroutes and plenty of patience. We fly the farthest distances to make the most of our time together.
  • Hotels in some destinations may vary in standard and facilities, and on occasion, hot water may be limited. There will be times when the location of our accommodation will mean it is practical to eat at the hotel restaurant rather than heading out for optional meals.
  • While there will be opportunities to spot many different kinds of wildlife, sightings cannot be guaranteed.
  • You will see tour operators offering elephant riding activities and many tourists taking part in them during your time in Chitwan. Intrepid Travel has a strong elephant welfare policy and as such we discourage travellers from riding elephants in Nepal or anywhere around the world. Please refer to the ‘Responsible Travel’ section of the Essential Trip Information for more details.

Wonderful trip - my 4th with Intrepid and best yet. Nepal is a fascinating place and Amit, our guide, really brought it to life. It was exactly the culture shock I needed after three years of no long haul travel.

This is a great itinerary for anyone looking for an alternative to trekking in Nepal. The places we visited showed a wonderful variety and we learnt so much about the culture, history and beauty of Nepal from our wonderful guide Amit. Plus the hotels and food were fabulous!

The trip to Nepal was my first Intrepid trip and I couldn't have been more pleased. We had a wonderful guide who provided extensive information about the culture, history, current affairs, and geography of the area. I felt safe and well taken care of, enjoyed the group, and had a fantastic time. Nepal is a fascinating country with a rich cultural history, unique location in the world, and a breathtaking landscape. It's well worth visiting, especially with Intrepid Travel.
