Our guide Anel was excellent and very knowledgeable and our driver was absolutely brilliant.

The hotels were excellent and the food to die for. I cannot fault this trip at all …. highly recommend. ”

It has always been a dream to hike in the Himalayas and I am so glad I chose On The Go to do it with! The group size was absolutely perfect, and the guides were incredible! This tour really does combine the perfect balance of culture and adventure! We were able to witness how Kathmandu is recovering from the earthquake in 2015, and how their conservation efforts are being implemented in Chitwan! We even saw a Rhino when relaxing in the pool, our safari hadn’t even started yet! Once on the trail, we could not have been in better hands. Our mountain guide Pasang was so knowledgeable about the mountains, the history and folklore. Even with hours of hiking per day he always kept us entertained. The pressure of “trying to keep up” was alleviated immediately and everyone felt really comfortable to go at their own pace. The teahouses used were so much better than we expected and the food inclusions were always more than we could eat with heaps of options available to us everyday! I will absolutely return to Nepal, and continue booking with On The Go Tours! It was the best experience!!”

This was my first organised tour after many years as as independent traveler, so I was a little hesitant about the experience. However from the moment we booked until the last day, we were met with an enthusiastic and professional On The Go workforce who all contributed to ensuring we had the best possible time. Fabulous trip, well organised and comprehensive.”

Frequently asked questions about our Nepal tours

Will I visit Kathmandu and Chitwan National Park on your tours?

The Nepalese capital Kathmandu is the start and end point for all of our trips to the country, as the main transport hub in Nepal. All of our group tours include a rickshaw ride around the city, and guided sightseeing to all of the main highlights.

Nepal's other main attraction is Chitwan National Park, home to wild tigers, rhinos, elephants, and the critically endangered gharial crocodile. All of our group tours spend two days in the park, with an included jeep safari and other included activities such as nature walks, canoeing, and visits to the gharial breeding centre, working to protect this rare species.

When is the best time to visit Nepal?

Nepal is a year-round destination, but the dry season from October - April offers the best weather and clear skies, meaning views of the Himalayas (including Mount Everest!) are at their best. For more information, check out our guide on when to visit Nepal.

Will I have a tour guide on my Nepal holiday?

We do not offer fully escorted tours in Nepal, but you will still benefit from the services of our local, English-speaking tour guides for all included sightseeing, as listed in the itinerary for each tour.

For the six-day trek on our Annapurna Panorama Nepal trip, you will be accompanied by a mountain guide and a team of porters as you hike through rural Nepal, home to some of the world's most spectacular scenery.

How big are your tour groups in Nepal and what is the age of your travellers?

Our small group tours in Nepal depart with a minimum of 4 passengers and have a maximum group size of 15 - 16.

The average age of our travellers is around 48, though we also welcome lots of people in their 20s and 30s on our holidays, as well as older passengers into their 70s. If you have a sense of adventure and a desire to see the world, then you'll fit right in with your fellow travellers! Please note that a good level of fitness is required for the six-day trek on our Annapurna Panorama tour.

What standard of accommodation do you offer on your Nepal tours?

On our Nepal group tours, you will stay in good quality, 4-star hotels. Information about the hotels we regularly use on tour can be found on each tour page. Accommodation in the Annapurna Mountains is limited so on the six-day trek as part of our Annapurna Panorama tour, you will stay in basic tea houses and trekking lodges.

What sort of transportation do you use in Nepal?

We use private, air-conditioned vehicles to travel around Nepal on our tours, although you will enjoy a fun rickshaw tour in Kathmandu. We also include internal flights on our group tours to travel longer distances - these are clearly labelled on the relevant tour pages.

Can I drink the tap water in Nepal?

The tap water is not safe to drink in Nepal, so we recommend using filtered and bottled water to drink and for other purposes such as brushing your teeth. This is readily available across the country. We also recommend avoiding salads that may have been washed using the tap water throughout your Nepal trip.

What is the current travel advice for Nepal?

As a UK-based company, we follow the latest up to date advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO). You can see the latest travel advice and local laws for Nepal here.
