Nepal tour reviews

What a trip of a life time. Extremely well organised from all ends (UK, India and Nepal). Everything went like a dream, meeting guides, trains, trips, transfers. It is a very very busy tour but if you want to stop for an afternoon and not do the activity organised, the Guide doesn't mind, remember to rest if you need it! It's your holiday, I stopped in Bharatpur as the pool was far too inviting!

Despite some pre-holiday (in hindsight) naive questions about packing and what to expect as first timers Sarah Bansgrove was awesome, patient, respectful and full of information, hints and tips. For anyone reading this.... you do not need any heals in India! Ha ha

Many thanks Sarah no doubt we'll be using On The Go Tours again.”

Recommended places to visit in Nepal

With stunning natural scenery of mountains and lakes, beautiful temples and national parks, there's plenty to see and do in Nepal and to get you started, here's our selection of the best.

Durbar Square | Kathmandu | Nepal

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.

Chitwan National Park

Wildlife spotting | Chitwan National Park | Nepal

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.

Everest Base Camp

View of Mount Everest | Nepal

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!


View on map
Swayambhunath Stupa | Kathmandu | Nepal

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.


View on map
Lake Phewa | Pokhara | Nepal

With picturesque lakes and stunning panoramic views, it’s no wonder by Pokhara is a favourite amongst travellers travelling to the Himalayas. Not only is Pokhara the gateway to the magnificent Annapurna Mountain range, it is also home to the beautiful Lake Phewa. Its stunning reflective waters dotted with brightly coloured boats make for the perfect photo opportunity.
