NEPAL TOURS

Home to the world's largest mountain range, Nepal provides some of the best trekking experiences this planet has to offer. The landlocked Asian nation is a paradise for adventurous types, although it also features an abundance of culture with beautiful palaces, temples and shrines adorning the Kathmandu Valley, gorgeous mountain vistas overlooking Pokhara, and national parks rich with wildlife. These are all just waiting to be discovered on one of our Nepal tours.

Explore the lowlands and sprawling capital city of Kathmandu, soaking in all its historic feel courtesy of the medieval squares and shrines complemented by bustling streets, shops and restaurants. Many old temples, monasteries and stupas are dotted around the country for those seeking some history, along with the thrills of white water rafting, cycling and more. Our Nepal holidays also visit the lowland Terai region which has some spectacular wildlife parks for spotting wild elephants, rhinos, tigers and exotic birds in their natural habitat.

Whatever you hope to get out of your trip to the country, all our small group tours in Nepal set off from Kathmandu and offer something different. Prepare well and take the traditional yet tough trek to Everest Base Camp, enjoy a comprehensive journey covering west to east through jungle regions and ancient hilltop villages or opt for a shorter jaunt with our Nepal Exposed tour if you're on a tighter schedule. Our private & tailor-made holidays can be customised as much or as little as you like, so you can book onto one of our Nepal tours to see this beautiful country in all its glory in a way that suits you.

Map

Our tailor-made tours seek to create a personalised experience – one that is completely exclusive to you. By taking all your interests and requests into consideration, we design an itinerary that ticks off your specific boxes. If you are after adventurous exploration, cultural immersion, a relaxing escape or a balanced blend of everything, we can make it happen.

A highlight of our tailor-made tours is that the itinerary is flexible and incorporates plenty of free time – so you can do some exploring on your own. Our local, friendly guides, experts in their country’s history and culture, will be happy to adjust the activities or your schedule as you travel.

If you are a group of friends, a large family or a company, our tailor-made tours are an ideal, stress-free option. You can even select your own hotels or make use of our recommended accommodation. We have a varied selection of sample holiday itineraries to choose from, either as they stand or as a base for inspiration.

TOUR REVIEWS

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.

There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.

I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
Excellent

Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
