Sherpas are Nepal's most famous ethnic group and have been employed on mountaineering and trekking expeditions since the 1920s.

With the magnificent Annapurna Range and legendary Mt. Everest, Nepal is the perfect destination for keen hikers and climbers. Choose from reaching Everest Base Camp or trekking the Annapurna round trip from Pokhara.

Really good varied tour. Tiring but fantastic. The tea houses were a little more basic than we imagined but we were so tired from trekking that we didn't care and slept well. Great food everywhere we went and lovely polite, helpful people. Loved the variety of Kathmandu. Pokara, Chitwan Safari and Trekking. Are already considering returning.”
Sat was our first tour guide and he was amazing, really knows his stuff, made us all feel like a big family. Helped us out with any kind of problem from exchanging money to taking me to a pharmacy. We were worried when we discovered just Richard and I were going on from The Triangle to Khatmandu but Sat assured us we would have guides in every place. We have to give a big thank you to OTG for providing us 2 with a personal driver and guide for the rest of the tour. Big thanks to Raj and Mr K who made the days a lot of fun. Some amazing experiences worth getting out of bed for, i.e. Sunrise over the Ganges. Also having the 1:1 allowed to ask more about real Indian ways of life and the many religions. Discovered much more than we expected. ”
Dawa, who led the trek, and his team were excellent.
In the Kathmandu and district sightseeing part of the holiday the yoghurt making demonstration and the "cultural evening" were a complete waste of time. Happily this did not spoil the overall experience.
I feel that it would be better to do the sightseeing in Kathmandu on before the trek as this gave a flavour of the capital where we were staying. The trip out to Pathan, Bodhnath and Bhaktapur could be done, if required, at the end.”

With a laid-back atmosphere, little to no traffic on the streets and ancient temples, Bhaktapur has a charm you won’t be able to resist. Stroll through Potter’s Square scattered potter wheels and freshly made clay pots out to dry. If you fancy yourself a bit of an artist you can try your hand at making your own and add it to the collection.
While most travellers come to Nepal in search of magnificent mountain ranges, ancient monasteries and spiritual well-being, its national parks are not to be forgotten. Hailed as one of the finest national parks in Asia, Chitwan dates back to 1973 and is home to some of the last one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tigers, sloth bears and more.
Rising 8848 metres above sea level, Everest is arguably the most famous mountain on earth and claims the title as the world’s highest. While reaching the summit is beyond contemplation for most, Everest Base Camp is still challenging but a tad more achievable. If you fancy doing something monumental this year, Everest awaits!
Brimming with history, time-worn temples and ancient pagodas, Kathmandu has plenty to captivate even the well-seasoned traveller. Wander through the medieval Kathmandu Durbar Square – home to more than fifty stunning temples and shrines, take in highlights like the beautiful Swayambhunath stupa and hop on a rickshaw for a glimpse of life in the city’s streets.
With picturesque lakes and stunning panoramic views, it’s no wonder by Pokhara is a favourite amongst travellers travelling to the Himalayas.
