Nepal travel guides

Think of Nepal and towering peaks dusted with snow spring to mind. Home to some of the world’s most dramatic scenery and containing eight of the world’s highest mountains - including Everest, it’s unsurprising that Nepal attracts walking and trekking enthusiasts.

Our travel guides can help inspire your next trekking vacation in this majestic country, whether you prefer gentle one-day walks soaking up the scenery or an epic two-week hike around the Everest region. Further south, sub-tropical jungles and fertile floodplains dominate. The national parks here teem with wildlife, including rhinos, tigers, exotic birds and elephants. You can also explore the temples and stupas that pepper the Kathmandu Valley, or visit the historic center of Kathmandu city.
