World Famous Nepal!

Incredible Nepal is a must-see destination. Nestled amongst the mightiest peaks in the world, its accessible mountains and awe-inspiring views cater to all, not just the seasoned adventurer.

Steeped in rich culture, the country’s spirit is as resilient as the mountains it’s famed for. Kathmandu, the capital, is a vibrant city reflecting centuries-old traditions. The warmth of local people, their captivating customs, and hospitable nature make the journey all the more enchanting.

Even if you’re not a thrill-seeker, Nepal’s scenic beauty and cultural richness promise an unforgettable experience.

Immersive Urban & Nature Travel

You’ll enjoy the finest luxury lodges in the Everest region, in addition to basic teahouses. From the top, we fly back to Kathmandu (saving your knees from downhill trekking) to a well-deserved lavish hotel experience. The blissful contrast is euphoric! It might just be the best day of your life.

After a wonderful return from (the bottom of) the top of the world… to silky sheets, long showers and double espresso, the group rests up for a day. Then we visit the temples for a cultural tour in Kathmandu chaos with our private guides, before heading home. This trip includes friendly airport meet-and-greet, plus transfers before and after the trek.

Lodging

This 13-night stay in Nepal will have you experiencing lodging extremes from luxury to ‘survival’ but your guiding team moves mountains to ensure you’re well fed, warm and comfortable throughout your experience.

Before and after the trek (in the bustle of Kathmandu) our team stays at a gorgeous Marriott hotel. On the trek, the first four days has us staying in premium accommodations in Yeti Mountain Lodges. As we go higher up the great Himalaya trails, five days is in authentic Tea Houses – similar to glamping. We then challenge ourselves to go without showers for four days, due to both availability of solar power heated water, and the metabolic impact that could risk altitude sickness. If you’re thinking about doing this package, be ready for character building lodging experiences as well as the trekking!

Few things will compare in your life to helicoptering down to the Marriott from the Everest Base Camp after five days in tea houses!
