Nepal walking & trekking holidays
Nepal is perhaps the most exciting of the Himalayan nations with the highest mountains, most vibrant culture, and a friendly charm that has 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. Alternatively you can combine gentle walks with wellness activities on our Walking & Wellness holiday or paint your way around Nepal on a Painting 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 Annapurna Sanctuary. But perhaps the most well-known trek in the region is the classic Annapurna Circuit. Alternatively you can trek across the high passes and remote valleys of the region on our Naar Phu, Namun La or Langtang trek.
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 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 can’t decide between Everest of Annapurnas, enjoy them both on our Annapurna & Everest in Style trek.
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 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 perspective on this beautiful and welcoming land.View our holidays here
