Nepal

Ready to go?

Your Nepal expedition. Find clarity, big horizons.

Namaste! Welcome to the Himalayan Kingdom. Within the small area of Nepal there is the greatest range of altitude on earth, from the Terai lowlands, only 100m above sea level to the summit of Mount Everest at 8,848m. Hiking in the Himalayas has to be an ultimate draw to Nepal and with some of the best mountaineering support crews on the planet – from sherpas to chefs, welcoming Nepalese culture is bound to sweep you away.

Don’t miss out on everything else Nepal has to offer on expedition, from white water rapids and wildlife adventures to your engagement with communities driving improvements in their local schools. Oh, and our favourite, the momo – delicious little steamed dumpling snacks.

Some of the best bits

Traverse the Himalayas

Admire the magic of the snowy peaks of the Himalayas by foot. Weave yourself up into the breathtaking Himalayan range and experience true mountain life. Supported by a full crew of sherpas, guides and cooks, you are set for success on your chosen trail.

Spot a rhino

Head to Chitwan National Park in the Terai lowlands for the chance to spot wildlife like deer and monkeys. You’d be blessed to see the extremely rare Bengal tiger and lucky to see wild elephants and leopards, but you’ve definitely got a chance seeing the rare one-horned rhino! Take a dugout boat down the Narayani River to see crocodiles.

Paddle fast!

Get the adrenaline pumping in white water rapids down the Trisuli River through scenic valleys, terraced rice fields and impressive gorges. Legend has it that the God Shiva drove his trident in the ground to create three springs – the source of the river, hence its name tri-suli.

Meditate by the lake

Relax and enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of the Phewa Lake and Annapurna mountain range. In Buddha’s own wise words, “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” We have no doubt that an expedition to Nepal will blow you away.

Meet the Mother and Child Foundation

The charity’s mission is to raise rural living standards in Nepal by empowering women and children with a quality education. Work alongside local communities to improve classroom capacity, renovate buildings to improve learning facilities and hear stories of an impressive commitment to education.

“The city life of Nepal was so far from our own, the culture and the people were beautiful. The project was an eye opener – to see someone else’s perspective and to step into their shoes. Being able to make a small contribution to their school felt amazing.”
