Nepal

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.

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

Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.

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.

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.

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

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!
