Bespoke Holidays To Nepal
Nepal is primarily known for the towering Himalayas, home to the great Mount Everest and the beginning of routes towards the Annapurnas and beyond. Even for those who aren’t looking for an intense hiking holiday, bespoke holidays to Nepal are a great place to try a group tour holiday. Experience the warm shelter of mountain lodges, a homely cuisine developed over thousands of years by people used to wandering the Nepalese mountainsides, and of course, enjoy an in-depth foray into the historically and culturally rich nation of Nepal.
For those people who prefer a more refined approach to travelling, the medieval cities of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur are ideal getaways for temple-spotting and alleyway-wandering. Whatever you’re after in Nepal, there are many mesmerising sights that guarantee that this will be a trip of a lifetime.
Further south, away from the mountains, are some of the world’s greatest and most overlooked national parks on earth. Composed mainly of wild stretches of jungle, there are tigers, crocodiles and rhinos all wandering these primordial lands. With a bespoke holiday to Nepal, you can choose an adventure in the north, with its historic and busy cities, the perfect place for a city break, or you can choose a trip to a jungle lodge somewhere outside Chitwan, watching tropical birds and simply enjoying the peace. Either way, you can discover the array of attractions in Nepal at your own pace.
Tailor-Made Holidays To Nepal
As we mentioned, the Himalayas are likely what you associate most with Nepal. If you’re keen on seeing this bucket-list spot on your tailor-made holiday to Nepal without the intensity of actually climbing Everest, you can take the Everest Base Camp Trek to join the small legion of people who can say they’ve laid eyes on the world’s tallest mountain. Of course, the ultimate reward of the trek is to see the mountain itself, but along the way, there are many other attractions, including traditional villages and monasteries, stunning vistas throughout the UNESCO-listed Sagarmatha National Park, and the warm hospitality of the local Sherpa population. You should also consider the Annapurna Circuit Trek, which is considered more visually stunning than the route to Everest’s base.
Once you’ve covered the mountains, spend some time in Kathmandu. Old Kathmandu is a particularly enticing place, a mix of ancient traditions and culture, Buddhist architecture and a bustling street life involving market touts and street food.
We also recommend that you spend some time at the UNESCO-listed Durban Square in the city centre to immerse yourself in the hubbub. Peaceful temples overflowing with colourful flowers provide momentary respite from the chaos of the city, and there are small moments where you’ll get lost in watching a local craftsman or mesmerised by a traditional musician.
