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.

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.
Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
Stephen, Australia I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
Ian, Canada My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after - be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
