Call for trip pricing
The Himalayas are home to the world's tallest mountains, including mighty Everest. But Nepal is so much more than lofty summits. It's the exotic bustle of Kathmandu. The twisting mountain paths. And the colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind, sending blessings to the world with each gust. Come to Nepal and embark on a journey of countless high points.
- Explore Kathmandu, a colorfully chaotic city like no other, where ancient and modern worlds converge and diverse cultures intermingle
- Hike from lodge to lodge along well-worn trails passing beneath a spectacular Himalayan skyline of jagged snowcapped peaks
- Experience firsthand the traditional culture and customs of local ethnic communities while visiting remote mountain villages
- Safari in Chitwan National Park, a World Heritage site and conservation leader, and spot wildlife by foot, jeep and longboat
