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.

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. The final part of the trek winds through Renjo La Pass 5360m and slides down to Lukla via Lumde, Thame, Namche and Monjo. 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.

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.

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.
British travelers Ms. Christine and Mr. Michael Patrick McDonagh recently were on Kathmandu and Chitwan Tour with us. They had an incredible experience during the private day tour of the UNESCO enlisted Heritage sites of Kathmandu and wildlife safari at Chitwan National Park. Before their departure they had something to say about their holiday in Nepal with Explore Himalaya.
Elephant rides in the jungle of Chitwan National Park and visit to the outstanding Bhaktapur Durbar Square with such excellent guides are the best memories of our trip to Nepal.
The service of Explore Himalaya is excellent. Every time our Tour Officer turned up on time and he was very helpful. Dwarika’s Hotel, the hotel we stayed in Kathmandu was outstanding with superb staffs. Guides were very knowledgeable and articulate. Nothing bothered us throughout our trip in Nepal. We would fully recommend Explore Himalaya to all the travelers planning to visit Nepal.
Vishnu Narayanasamy from Singapore and seven other fellow travelers were recently on a holiday to Nepal with Explore Himalaya. The tour included the highly revered pilgrimage destination Muktinath, private day tour of Pashupatinath, Boudhanath and Bhaktapur Durbar Square in Kathmandu valley, the wildlife safari in the UNESCO Heritage Site Chitwan National Park and the sightseeing tour of the most beautiful city in Nepal, Pokhara.
After the completion of the holiday which comprised diverse activities Mr. Vishnu said few lines of admiration regarding their holiday to Nepal.
If I have to pick the best memory out of many, that would be the visit to Muktinath and obviously the bathing in holy 108 taps in Muktinath Temple premises.
Talking about the services of Explore Himalaya I would say, it was faultless. Meeting and handling was done beyond our expectation. Hotels we stayed in were clean and comfortable. Guides throughout our holiday in Nepal were very knowledgeable and accommodative and the field staffs of the company were always available. The team assigned to serve our group went out of their way to advice on sites and made the last minute changes due to unforeseen circumstances which we admire very much. We would recommend the fellow travelers to pick Explore Himalaya as their travel partner in Nepal.
Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
