Culture and heritage tour is not only about visiting cities, but its also about meeting people from different ethnicities, religions, and backgrounds. Asia has a lot of countries which have a very rich history and unique religion and people

Culture and tradition give a unique identity to a country.  Historically and culturally significant sites with centuries-old tradition are included in our Culture and City tour packages. Traveling is not only about visiting new places but meeting new people, knowing about new culture and tradition which eventually broadens your horizon.

People who visit Nepal rarely miss a chance to marvel at the fine craftsmanship of ancient times. Kathmandu's cultural tour will take you to three medieval kingdoms of Kathmandu valley and heritage sites listed in UNESCO. Among eight cultural heritage sites listed in UNESCO, Kathmandu valley is home to 7 of them. If you want to stroll in the traditional villages inhabited by Newars of Kathmandu valley then we have designed tours that will take you around the villages of Patan and Bhaktapur.

The best season to do cultural and city tours are spring, autumn, and early winter when it’s neither too hot nor too cold. The early mornings and late evenings in autumn and early winter may get a bit chilly. In summer, afternoons can be hot but morning and nights are cool. If you don’t mind touring in snow and rain then you can tour in monsoon and winter.

Guinness World Record holder Gives Third Rock Adventures a Review!

werner berger

Werner Berger is the Guinness Book of World Records holder for being the oldest person in the World to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven (7) continents (incl. Mt. Everest).

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.

- Werner Berger
