Nepal Highlights

Mountain kingdoms don’t come much better than this. From the flourishing intrigue of Asia’s coolest city, Kathmandu, to the dazzling vistas of Nepal’s mountainous ring, Nepal is somewhere incredibly special. Everest awaits.

STUPAS, PRAYER FLAGS AND MOUNTAINS

Landlocked in South Asia and nestled in the Himilayan mountain range, with rugged trails leading up to the highest mountain peak in the world, Nepal is the ultimate trekking destination. Beyond the mountains and world-famous Everest, uncover Nepal’s heritage in Kathmandu, get your adrenaline pumping paragliding in Pokhara, and see endangered wildlife in UNESCO World Heritage site, Chitwan National Park. There’s a lot to explore here.

CULTURE IN KATHMANDU

Home to the country’s only international airport, a trip to Nepal wouldn’t be complete without a visit to its temple-studded capital city to explore the country’s history and culture.. Sprawling in the shadow of the Himalayas, Kathmandu is crammed with medieval temples, wonderful architecture and, surprisingly, incredible street art. Wander around the bustling alleyways and eat like a local enjoying traditional Nepalease dishes from momos (steamed dumplings) to arguably the most famous food of Nepal, the Dal Bhat consisting of lentil soup and rice.

EVEREST BY HELICOPTER

Be star-struck by panoramic views as you soar high above the snow-capped Himalayas on your very own private helicopter tour, witnessing the pointed peak of mighty Everest and gaining a rare opportunity to appreciate this most coveted of mountain’s relationship to the mammoth range of which it forms a part.

LUXURY HONEYMOONS IN NEPAL

For couples seeking an ‘off the beaten track’ experience, Nepal is the place to go. Embark on an out of the ordinary adventure, cycling through the world’s deepest Gorge, Cali Gandaki, passing through arid desert, conifer forests, and snow-capped mountains. Or why not stay in a Taj Safari Lodge on the outskirts of Chitwan National Park with an infinity pool looking out over the jungle? It’s here you’ll set off on a wildlife safari at dawn or dusk spotting elephants, tigers, sloth bears and more, before cozying up around the bonfire under the stars for a romantic dinner.

LUXURY HOTELS IN NEPAL

From admiring the views of the Rapti River from the edge of the plunge pool to sleeping in grand four-poster beds and relaxing in freestanding bathtubs in Kathmandu, Nepal isn’t short of luxury and boutique hotels. With a number of hotels encouraging the banning of poaching and giving back money to local communities, Nepal is ahead of the game when it comes to conservation.

CITY BREAK IN KATHMANDU

Perfectly positioned in the heart of Kathmandu, but set back from the crowds, Dwarika’s hotel stands out from the rest. The beautiful architecture and wooden windows outside, together with the individually designed rooms boasting antique furniture hand-woven linens inside, give a sneak preview into Nepal’s ancient heritage here. Relax in the pool by the tiled courtyard or dine in the hotel’s gourmet restaurant enjoying traditional dishes such as steamed dumplings and bean sprout soup.

CONSERVATION CONSCIOUS

As you leave the bustling city and enter the green Himalayan hillsides, The Pavilions Himalayas, is the perfect boutique hotel mixing modern comfort with traditional Nepalese touches. Sitting just outside Pokhara, in a valley surrounded by farmland and mountain rivers, this eco-hotel offers utter seclusion with its high ceilings and private terraces. Working with local communities is at the heart of The Pavilions Himalayas ethos, ensuring they give back to the local community and avoid imported foods. Their weekly changing menu to ensure the use of fresh and local produce has us foodies at Black Tomato hooked.
