Trip Overview

Get ready to embark on capturing some of the vivid moments handed down to you by nature as you travel to the best places Nepal offers. The country of the eight highest mountains in the world, Nepal happens to be one of the most popular destinations for adventure and landscape photography.

Whether you’re an admirer of the diverse culture or like to immerse completely in the abundant wildlife, this trip is an exciting getaway for all the adventurers and passionate shutterbugs. The tour provides you an opportunity to know the rich biodiversity of the much-protected and conserved country. This tour allows you to grasp the Nepali terrains as well as its varied topography. It starts right from the capital of the nation, Kathmandu, and explores popular cities of Chitwan and Pokhara to scenic villages like Ghorepani, Poonhill, and Nagarkot.

The Trekking and Wildlife Photography Tours is a treat to the eye of the explorers, as you get to travel around the most loved places of the country. The tour in the capital takes you to the renowned historical UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Swayambunath Stupa, Bhaktapur, Kathmandu, and Patan Durbar square. Additionally, the travelers will also tour around one of the oldest Hindu temples in the capital; The Pashupatinath Temple. One of the major highlights of the tour is your visit to the district of Chitwan, a hub for rare and endangered wildlife and its conservation areas. 

The trip introduces you to some of the most scenic places in Nepal. You’ll visit the famous World Peace Stupa in Pokhara as you behold the beauty of the iconic Phewa lake. The journey itself provides plenty of opportunities for enthusiasts to catch the magical sunrise and sunsets at different locations. We assure you, you will be truly mesmerized by the beautiful Pokhara city. A challenging yet equally enticing day awaits as you take a short trek to one of the most loved journeys; the Tadapani-Ghorepani-Poonhill route. The weariness of the trek feels a lot better when you are greeted every day by the majestic giants! On a bright, clear day, you can witness a wide stretch of the Himalayas, including Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, and Nilgiri, to name a few.

We see this tour as an experience that allows both the emerging and experienced photographers to enjoy nature, wildlife, and surroundings as they hone their photography skills. It offers the perfect balance of photography, culture, nature, and wildlife. Whether you’re a street photographer, a landscape enthusiast, or into nature photography, we bet you will enjoy this journey of knowing the magical side of Nepal!

All you have to do is be present at the moment as you get closer to experiencing the wilderness.

If traveling to Nepal has always been a part of that bucket list, reach out to us! Besides the brief trek, the only thing you need to do in this tour is to stay alert and be constantly aware of your surroundings as you discover the perfect moments to capture!

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
