Nepal hit the headlines of global media after the quake 25/04. Devastation prevails in few parts of central Nepal but the rest of the Himalayan country is absolutely safe as if the quake never struck in these places. Nepal is still the ideal destination for travelers seeking diversified alpine adventures and it still has many sites that manifest the glorified cultural legacy of sovereign country.
Few monuments in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu collapsed but many of them still stand tall. Trekking Regions like Langtang and Manaslu suffered the tremor of the quake but the regions like Annapurna, Dolpo, Kanchenjunga and Everest are still intact and are as beautiful as they were before 25/04.
The disaster has gone and the recovery has begun. As a responsible travel agent based in Nepal, we assure you that Nepal is a safe destination to travel. Trust us and continue to travel Nepal because the biggest priority we put while operating tours and treks in Nepal is your safety. Once again we urge every foreign traveler to travel to Nepal.
Best of Nepal that comprises the three major cities of Nepal- Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan is Nepal’s one of the best selling cultural tours. Kathmandu boasts on cultural heritages, Pokhara wows on natural delights and Chitwan is a wildlife paradise. Recently few of our clients had the Best of Nepal Tour. After the tour, they shared their experiences in Nepal.
The best memory of the trip was flying over the Himalayas, the stay at Bandipur & Tibetan Refugee Camp.
The meeting and handling of Explore Himalaya was excellent, effective and on time. Both the guides in Pokhara and Kathmandu were good. The transport was excellent. The driver who took us to Pokhara was excellent.
I highly recommend Explore Himalaya as a service that takes the hassle out of you. It’s been already an exceptional experience in Nepal.
-Mr. Kenneth Thomas Sutton, Austrailia
Every different place has been memorable for different reasons. We’ve loved the “hustle & bustle” of Kathmandu to the peacefulness of Bandipur and Pokhara and the breathtaking mountain views.
Explore Himalaya’s meeting and handling was great. They met us with smiles on their faces. It was a perfect way to start our trip. All the hotels were clean and fantastic. Our guides Nabu &Prakesh were amazing. They were funny, polite and never boring. Every member of staffs from the driver to manager has been great. The transport was clean and safe.
100% YES! I will recommend Explore Himalaya to other travelers who are willing to visit Nepal. The whole experience has been mind blowing fun, informative. We loved every minute our stay in Nepal.
It has been an amazing and wonderful experience with great staff. A real credit to Explore Himalaya.
-Ms. Denise Appleton & Ms. Lauren Lidford from United Kingdom
An ideal family holiday, Wonderland of Himalayas is a composition of diverse activities of Nepalese highlights, which offers glimpses of every touristic attractions of Nepal. The soft and low altitude trek to Poonhill Ghorepani in Annapurna Region is the prime highlight of this holiday in Nepal. Allowing enough time in the typical hamlets of the region, in order to dig more into rural culture is an interesting part of the trek. During the trek you get to witness magnificent oak and rhododendron forests as you ascend to alpine meadows that afford spectacular views of the Annapurna Range. After the trek, a completely new activity for your holiday is designed. Wildlife Safari at Chitwan National Park atop a giant Asian elephant is considered one of the best wildlife activities in Asia. Encountering with several wild animals and spotting hundreds of species of birds are the major highlights at Chitwan. The mountain flight at the end of the tour is just like a sweet dessert. Mountain Flight takes you to the snow dominant Everest Region, where the gigantic peaks soar up to the sky.
Two Australian families, Welchs and Symmons recently explored the wonderland of Himalayas. Two weeks long holiday in Nepal made them fall in love with the country. Paul Welch after the completion of the trip wrote some sentences about their experiences during the holiday in Nepal.
Trekking was wonderful. Especially Rupen and the boys were very good. Jeep Safari at Chitwan and spotting sloth bears and several rhinos were very interesting and the Mountain flight was excellent opportunity to view the scenic nature.
Explore Himalaya’s service was excellent. Sabin, our Tour Officer was very attentive and took good care of us. Hotels and transportation were very good- reliable and comfortable. The team of Explore Himalaya is an outstanding and highly recommended team. We would rate their service with five stars and recommend Explore Himalaya to all the travelers to Nepal.
Everest High Passes Trek is globally considered one of the most challenging treks. Also known as “3 Passes Trek” the trek starts at Lukla and winds through the traditional Everest Base Camp Trial till Dingboche 4410m. Nangkar Tshang 5616m could be an ideal day hike activity from Dingboche before the trek enters the Chukkung Valley. Cross Passing Kongma La Pass 5535m once again the 3 Passes Trek enters Khumbu Valley. Exploring Kalapattar 5545m and Everest Base Camp 5357m, the Everest High Passes Trek then heads towards the famous Gokyo Valley. On the way, climbing Awi Peak 5245m could be an interesting part of the trek. Cross passing Cho La Pass 5330m, the trek officially enters the Gokyo Valley. Gokyo Valley, the valley Lakes is the prime highlight of the Trek. Gokyo Ri 5360m, a ridge above the valley which offers the stunning views of Everest and Makalu is a bonus reward at Gokyo Valley.

Everest High Passes not only test the trekkers endurance, it also offers the natural and cultural highlights of three major valleys at the base of Everest; Chukkung (Imja), Khumbu and Gokyo.
Three New Zealanders, Ms. Grayling Colleen, Mr. Kevin Cruickshank and Mr. John Pope with an American trekker Mr. Brown Sean were on this challenging 3 Passes trek with us. After the completion of the trek the group also enjoyed the wildlife activities at Chiwan National Park.
Here we have a short testimonial by Ms. Colleen and Mr. Kevin after the completion of their trekking and wildlife holiday in Nepal.
The sceneries and the landscapes during High Passes Trek where we also had an opportunity to meet kind local people and the wildlife activities at Chitwan are the best memories of this Holiday.
The service of Explore Himalaya was very good; the staffs were very helpful, guide was excellent and the hotels we stayed in were great.
We would definitely recommend Explore Himalaya to friends and family.
Trekking in Nepal is always a fascinating experience. If a wildlife tour and rural activities are added to a trekking adventure while exploring Nepal with a family, the vacation definitely becomes a blast. Six Danish travelers, Poulsens and Panduros through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel recently trekked and toured around Nepal with us. Their tour began with the cultural sightseeing tour to traditional Newari villages, flanking Kathmandu; Bungmati and Khokona. They also visited few Heritage sites in Kathmandu out of many, which represented the prosperous civilization of ancient and medieval Nepal. The school visit and the homestay programs at Nuwakot, a famous mid-hill village of central Nepal allowed them to closely understand the culture of rural Nepal. Prior to their departure to Nuwakot the mountain flight was eventually the best air travel of their lives. The group had the trek to Langtang which was the prime highlight of their holiday to Nepal. Their trek to Langtang covered the famous Kyanjin Gompa, Langtang Village and the day hike to Tsergo Ri. As soon as Langtang Trek was completed for the wildlife adventure, the group headed towards Chitwan, a famous wildlife park in the central lowland terai of Nepal. Chitwan was amazing experience for the Danish group. After enjoying the diverse aspects of Nepal for eighteen days the group departed Nepal on April 16, 2014.
Here we have few lines by Poulsens and Panduros regarding the holiday in Nepal with Explore Himalaya.
The activities at Chitwan National Park and the trek are the best memories of our holiday to Nepal. Bathing with the elephants at Chitwan and mingling with the nature during trek were awesome experiences. Our guide Lamababu is a great guide to travel with.
The services of Explore Himalaya were great. Everything was super. Meeting and handling, guides, office staffs and hotels we stayed in, everything were perfect. You have taken care of us in a very nice way.
We would recommend a tour like this to others and certainly with Explore Himalaya.
