Nepal Holidays - Home to some of the warmest people on Earth
The mountain rim to the north cradles Nepal, home to some of the warmest and friendliest people on Earth, and the superb national parks of the lowlands famous for rhinos and tigers that are sometimes spotted against the backdrop of some of the highest mountains in the world.
It is hard to imagine a country quite like Nepal. There is nowhere else in the world where you can set out atop an elephant searching for tigers and rhinoceros through lush, subtropical jungle and grassland with your horizon framed by the highest mountains in the world. It is a country of indescribable beauty; its hardy, cheerful people, whose faces seem permanently wreathed in smiles, amongst the friendliest in the world.
The charming, rustic hill villages contrasting with the highly-evolved architectural styles of the Kathmandu Valley, whose pagoda roofs inspired and influenced the architecture of the whole of Eastern Asia.
Ultimately, it must be the finest trekking and gentle mountain walking in the world; its lodges, camps and hotels still amongst the best in the subcontinent and it offers something for everyone, from couples to families alike!
We can tailor your walks to your fitness levels and accompanied by your expert Sherpa guide, you will be able to explore the Annapurna mountains and the Everest region, over-nighting in cosy, comfortable cabins and lodges, and perhaps even rafting down the Seti River – these holidays to Nepal are for the more adventurous or simply those who love walking.
Nepal can either be a stand-alone country for the individual for a luxury holiday to Nepal, or for a luxury family holiday to Nepal, and can be combined with a luxury India holiday, or holidays in Bhutan.
There’s still a touch of the exotic to Kathmandu; Hayes’ “One-eyed Yellow idol to the north of Kathmandu” lurks in the haze of our imagination. For all its urban sprawl, its pollution and impossible traffic, on a misty winter’s evening as you gaze down on the city from the high Buddhist stupa of Swayambunath ‘the Self-born’ and the setting sun glints off the pagoda roofs of the temples of Old Kathmandu and gilds the great snow-caps of the high Himalayan peaks along the northern horizon you truly feel the allure of this once hidden city.
The lakeside town of Pokhara is spoilt with natural beauty, including waterfalls and caves and it is most famous for being the gateway to the Annapurna region, one of the most popular and beautiful trekking regions in the world.
The Bardia National Park is situated in the far west of Nepal. It is a world away from the chaotic hustle of Kathmandu and an area of extraordinary beauty and abundant wildlife. A visit to Bardia is a journey of adventure and an opportunity to reconnect with nature.
Nepal is home to eight out of the fourteen highest peaks in the world with a colorful and intricate Hindu religion and the austerity of the Buddhist monasteries. From these breathtaking heights, rivers crash down through the foothills, fed by monsoon rains and melting snow on their way to the Great Plains of the Ganges.
Ski the biggest mountain range on earth! Land at 5,200m and ski down. There is nowhere else in the world where you can get that high. You will be spoilt by endless mountain views and perfect conditions for adventure, zooming through thin air surrounded by nothing less than the world’s highest peaks.
