Mr. Jan Cassoee and Mr. Niels Daniel were on a Nepal tour with Explore Himalaya from December 22, 2012 to January 9, 2013. Danish guests through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel, made their trip memorable, visiting the best of Nepal as well as few other noteworthy places like Bandipur, Tansen, Nuwakot and Janakpur.
Prior the tour beyond Kathmandu valley, they spent a day for the brief sightseeing tour around Kathmandu. They also made to connected villages of Khokana and Bungmati to experience the remote traditional Newari lifestyles.
The trip beyond the valley began from Samari. After, a couple days of homestays at Samari and Nuwakot, a long drive along Siddartha, Prithivi and Mahendra Highways kicked off. Stopping for the exploration around the cities lying nearby or on these Highways, the Danish visitors made the perfect visits to the places of tourist attractions like Bandipur, Pokhara, Tansen, Chitwan and Janakpur.
After, 12 days of worthy trip to the culturally and geographically diverse locations of Nepal, the visitors were back at Kathmandu. At Kathmandu, the visitors visited the remaining cultural sites in the valley in their own. The glory of Kathmandu has remained intact for centuries with numerous cultural, historical and religious sites within it.
The Danish made their late departure on January 9, 2013 with beautiful and everlasting memories of Nepal.
Ms. Simonsen Bodil was the member of Danish lineup which was on the Nepal trip from October 6 to October 26, 2012. The Danish squad through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel had the home-stays trip to Sele and Samari, trekking expedition to Langtang, sightseeing tour around Kathmandu and Pokhara and the rafting thrill in the Seti River. The visitors had the wonderful retreat during their entire tour in Nepal. Explore Himalaya as their travel guide in Nepal recorded some of her beautiful sentences regarding the excursion.
Here she goes….
“During our first meeting we felt confident as we knew Explore Himalaya was always a step ahead in terms of providing better services. We had the people we needed and we had the best tour guide Sanu. The supporting staffs and our guides made the very good team work”.
“Every hotels, home-stays and camps we stayed in, had the very good standard of services. Home-stay in Samari was exceptionally excellent. Despite of tough natural conditions in the Langtang region hotels were good enough to stay. Meals were good considering the topographical conditions in Nepal. Our transportation was given a high priority with sound cars all the time”.
“5-6 hours of excursion a day in a row is good, 8 hours of journey is even better if we are resting the next day. However, from my point of view, 2-3 hours of day hiking during the trek sometimes could be adjusted in other long trekking day to save the time for some other destinations”.
“Overall the tour to Nepal was exceptionally good and Explore Himalaya is an amazing travel guide around Nepal”.

I am not the type of person that would usually take a trip from Beijing to Kathmandu by land. I had no idea what international travel was like or how difficult it can be gaining entry into Tibet. In fact I still don’t because Explore Himalaya made it easy for me.
