Below is a past sample of a Nepal tour during the holidays. For upcoming tours, click here.
You will arrive in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, for an easy hike through some of the world’s most remarkable (and loftiest) terrain. From the foothills, you will gaze at the Himalaya’s, and meet local residents. You will then trek through the Chitwan National Park and see wildlife in their natural habitat.
In the small villages (Tamang and Gurung clan regions), you will make your way through bamboo and oak forests with luscious rhododendron in contrast to a likely wintry landscape back home. Passing by glaciers and majestic mountain peaks, you will conclude your fascinating journey at the glacier basin known as the Sanctuary.
