Nepal walking & trekking holidays
Nepal is perhaps the most exciting of the Himalayan nations with the highest mountains, most vibrant culture, and a friendly, chaotic charm that have made it a favourite destination for travellers and trekkers for many years. You don’t have to go far or particularly high to get a sense of the scenic, natural and cultural attractions of Nepal. The beautiful hilltop villages and World Heritage sites near Kathmandu can be explored on our Mid Hills & Village Heartlands walking holiday or they can be combined with the cultural allure of Bhutan on our Nepal & Bhutan Explorer tour.
The Annapurnas offer trekking at all levels from a gentle trekking holiday in the foothills, staying in luxury lodges, to a more vigorous trek into the heart of the iconic Annapurna Sanctuary. But perhaps the most well-known trek in the region is the classic Annaparna Circuit. Alternatively you can trek across the high passes and remote valleys of the region on the Naar Phu & Annapurna Traverse.
In the Everest region, completing the trek to Everest Base Camp is the goal for most experienced trekkers, and there’s even an Everest Base Camp in Style trek for those who prefer a few home comforts on the trail. And, if you want to explore the Everest region beyond Base Camp there are several options. You can trek to the turquoise waters of the Gokyo Lakes, take the ultimate high altitude trek - the Three High Passes to Everest or even challenge yourself on an Everest trekking peak such as Mera Peak or Island Peak. And if you really can’t decide between Everest of Annapurnas, enjoy them both on our Annapurna & Everest Panorama Trek or Annapurna & Everest in Style.
If you prefer a more remote experience, Wild Nepal will take you off-the-beaten-track. The little-explored area of Ganesh Himal, the mysterious desert landscapes of the Kingdom of Mustang, the remote base camps of Kangchenjunga and the traditional Tibetan culture of Manaslu on the classic Manaslu Circuit, all offer a different and compelling perspective on this beautiful and welcoming land.View our holidays here
