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.

What sort of transportation do you use in Nepal?
Is Nepal a safe destination for travellers from the LGBTQ+ community?
According to the 2022 LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index, Nepal scores a C rating for LGBTQ+ traveller safety, ranking 47th out of 203 countries.
Same sex marriage isn’t legal but there are broad constitutional and worker protections in place for people of all sexual orientations. 76 - 100% of consulted citizens consider Nepal a good place to live for gay and lesbian people, and there are no legal punishments for same sex relations. Most trips for LGBTQ+ travellers to Nepal are trouble-free.
The LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index is designed to provide a good overall picture of attitudes towards the LGBTQ+ community in each country and may not reflect the experience of foreign travellers to the country.
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.
