Eight of the ten tallest mountains in the world stand within Nepal’s borders, including the legendary trekker magnets of Mt Everest and Annapurna.
If the big peaks are beyond your ambitions or you don’t like the idea of lining up behind 500 people to attempt the summit of Everest, we highly recommend a most unusual trek through the foothills surrounding Chitwan National Park. The first trek in Nepal to be designed on responsible tourism principles, you’ll stay with local Magar and Gurung families in traditional homestays, feast on food grown right in the village, and learn about the subsistence culture of the semi-nomadic Chepang people. This is an amazing trek through untouched forest – and the views of snowcapped peaks are pretty special, too.
Push your Nepal trip into wildlife overdrive with a safari through the fantastic forests of Chitwan National Park, home to tiger, leopard and the endangered one-horned rhinoceros.
