Blessed with natural beauty and magnificent sights, Nepal often makes it to the list of ‘must-visit’ destinations in the world. With eight of the world’s highest peaks and a chain of mountains stretching from east to west, the country is a paradise for trekking and climbing enthusiasts. Nepal is also home to ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Book a Nepal cultural tour package and discover ancient world heritage sites. Explore the tropical jungles of Terai plains. Take a helicopter tour and experience the Himalayas from up above. There’s so much to do in Nepal!
Though the ideal seasons are Spring and Autumn, you can explore Nepal anytime of the year. While most of the trekking trails (Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit) remain unapproachable during the summer or rainy season, treks to the Trans-Himalayan region of Mustang and Dolpo are possible during this time. These areas lie under the rain shadow and receive no rainfall during monsoon. Cultural tours to Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini etc. can be taken anytime of the year. Winter is ideal for wildlife safaris as the popular wildlife spotting national parks are situated in the tropical zone.
There is so much to do in Nepal, that you’ll be spoilt for choice. While Trekking in Nepal is the most popular activity, visitors also find other outdoor activities equally engaging. Activities on offer include short day hikes, cultural tours, food tours, photography tours, adventure activities like rafting, bungy jumping, mountain biking, paragliding, rock climbing etc.
It depends on where you want to go and what you want to do. If you want to explore only Kathmandu, you can do it in a day or two. If you want a multi-city tour, Kathmandu-Pokhara-Chitwan for instance, you need at least 4-7 days. Treks can be of shorter or longer duration. It all depends on your choice. Ghorepani-Poonhill Trek is one of the shortest and easiest treks. It takes only 3 days (starts and ends in Pokhara) to complete the trek. Popular treks like the Everest Base Camp trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek or the Manaslu Circuit takes at 2 to 3 weeks to complete.Learn More
I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.
Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.
So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.
One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.
Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
