At Encounters Travel our Nepal tours offer travellers and trekking enthusiasts some of the world's best mountain hiking routes and scenery that the planet has to offer - a truly once in a lifetime adventure travel experience!
Nepal is a perfectly landlocked Asian nation that offers an abundance of adventure - also featuring a diverse culture with beautiful palaces, temples and shrines adorning the Kathmandu Valley, gorgeous mountain vistas overlooking Pokhara, and national parks rich with wildlife.
Our Nepal tour packages 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.
On several of our Nepal tours, you can 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 and tailor-made holidays can be customized 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. Our private Nepal trekking tour itineraries have been designed to add something different to classic routes and can all be shortened or extended to fit your availability.

Amazing tour. Any issues we had were addressed in a timely fashion and the resolutions were satisfactory. My only complaint is the driver picking us up was late and none of the cell numbers worked when we tried to call and figure out what to do.
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.
I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.
When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
