Trip Overview

Explore Nepal and endeavor all the unique and must-experience aspects of it! Nepal Explore tours let you get acquainted with a wide variety of offerings when it comes to natural and cultural exploration in Nepal. Visit the UNESCO-listed heritage sites in Nepal and go to some fantastic vantage points to uncover the raw appeal of wild towering mountains. Revive yourself with a jungle safari in the pristine, wild, untouched, and undisturbed habitat of wild animals.

Your visit to the UNESCO-listed heritage sites in Nepal is enlightenment towards the unique art, culture, and history preserved in the old palaces, temples, and holy spots in Nepal. Kathmandu Durbar Square is one of the fantastic demonstrations of fine art. The wood-carved pillars, eyes windows, stone-carved writings, metal and stone statues in the temples reflect the artistic lifestyle of Malla kings and their followers. Swayambhunath stupa and Boudhanath stupa is a sacred place for Buddhist people.

The white dome with a golden spire gives the stupa an alluring look. The monasteries and statues of Lord Buddha make the environment around stupa auspicious and peaceful. Pashupatinath temple is a holy place for Hindu pilgrims that consists of well-preserved old temples. The ash-rubbed Sadhus are the major attraction of this place. Lumbini is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. The Maya Devi temple, Ashoka pillar, and the monasteries built around the heritage site in Lumbini are the must-visit places in your exploration journey.

Besides, cultural exploration, wildlife exploration is a unique aspect of Nepal Explore Tours. Visit the dense forest in Chitwan National Park and enjoy an elephant ride in between the wild jungle. It is an opportunity to encounter various wild animals and birds like one-horned rhino, Bengal tiger, langur monkeys, wild boar, sloth bear, jungle cats, pythons, crocodiles, elephants, deer, etc. and over 500 species of local and migrating birds. You can also opt for the adventure activities like canoeing.

And what is the meaning of your travel to Nepal if you didn’t get a view of beautiful mountains? Admire the awe-inspiring beauty of mountains from Nagarkot. The panoramic views of mountains like Ganesh Himal, Annapurna range, Mt. Everest, Dhaulagiri Himal, Gaurishankar range, and many more from this vantage point are magnificent. The lakeside city – Pokhara; there might be no one in the world who is unaware of its beauty. The serene lakes in the backdrop of Annapurna ranges make this place a natural paradise. The sunrise view from Sarangkot is bliss that will give a cooling effect to your eyes and your mind!

Reviews

Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
