Recently, Jeremy Clayton Woodhouse led the team of photographers from Australia and United States of America to these places in Nepal. The Team of Photographers also explored Bhutan for the Photography Tour.
Ms. Arial McIntyre Lang, one of the members of the team says some beautiful lines on their Photography Tour in Nepal and Bhutan with us.
The best memory of our trip was the view from Poonhill. From Poonhill we were really blessed with the view. Though I became ill, the night we reached Ghorepani, the guide encouraged me and took care of me so wonderfully that I could see through the top.
The Services of Explore Himalaya was flawless throughout our Photography Tour in Nepal and Bhutan. Meeting and handling was great, clear, concise and helpful. We stayed in great hotels. Both our guides cared about their country; they were informative and flexible with Photography constraints.
Overall, we had great photographic experience. However, I would recommend to add great Boudhanath stupa to the itinerary at 4 PM and to add one extra day in Trongsa.
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.

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.

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.
