Explore Nepal

“It is better to travel than read thousands of books”

This phrase does not fail to give an idea of the importance of traveling. We are so lucky to have such a naturally beautiful country with such broad cultural and ethnic diversity. As time goes by, the interest of travelers has increased from simple BUDGET TOURS to LUXURIOUS TRAVELS. A simple BUS DRIVE to expensive charter HELICOPTER FLIGHTS. A few hours of HIKING to three-month-long treks like the GREAT HIMALAYAN TRAIL. A casual HILL WALK to difficult climbing attempts to the World's highest Mt. EVEREST. All different people around the globe have different methods to explore the destination that is Nepal.

  • Day Tours / Day Trips

    Traveling in a guided tour gives massive knowledge on the history and culture of the local area. The certified tour guide will explain the details of the sights. If not a guided tour, we can simply provide you with a comfortable car for short visits. It is an amazing feeling to go through even the simplest of activities. Traveling in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet is very different as you might notice that the South Asian people are very relaxed for even the smallest of things others may not bother about. Every visit has a unique experience. There are definitely many options with add ones. A day visit to the popular local market like Asan, touristic towns like Thamel, Jhose and many Durbar squares. An unique blend of Hindu and Buddhist sights of Nepal Mandala which is since centuries back can be a great experience. Short drive and hikes to hilltop viewpoints/villages can be done in a package or by private tours.

As per the WWF, Nepal is the first country to double its national tiger population, with the Royal Bengal Tiger now covering its entire roaming lands. Similarly, numbers of the exquisite one-horned rhino have also marginally increased through the contribution of local authorities. As a diplomatic token, Nepal often gives a live rhino as a diplomatic gift to other countries.

Tharus have a unique culture of living in the Chure foothills of Nepal. Native Tharus are another attraction whose great contribution to preserve wilds as well as go along with eco-friendly activities [ www.indigenousvoice.com]
