Nepal

Sitting on the spine of the world, sandwiched between the superpowers of China and India, you’ll find Nepal.A tiny Himalayan country where Sherpa still trudge the mountain paths and prayer flags crisscross the sky, their fluttering Buddhist mantras snatched on the breeze. Follow our leaders up to Basecamp, trek the rhododendron forests of the Annapurna, track rhino through the Chitwan jungle or stuff your face with momos in the warren-like streets of Thamel. Whichever Nepal trip you choose, we promise you one thing: you’ve never been anywhere like this.
