This diverse and active holiday in Nepal promises to be an unforgettable adventure!

You'll travel with your own experienced guide who will explain to you the history, culture and wildlife of this fascinating country. You start in Kathmandu, staying in a characterful hotel, and we take you on an exciting tour, where you'll see temples, squares, a Tibetan craft centre, the famous 'monkey temple' of Swayambunath, and Patan City, the town with a thousand golden roofs.

Next comes five days of trekking in the Annapurnas with your guide and porter, and staying in traditional tea-houses en route. The exact route that you take is flexible - have a word with your guide before you set off about how far you want to walk and what you are interested in seeing, and they will plan out a suitable route for you. Whatever route you take, you will be up in the mountains from the start, enjoying fabulous views of the Annapurnas. You will also have the opportunity to meet the remote community of this area.

Next, you take part in two of the most popular activities in Nepal - rafting and wildlife watching. Rafting down the Trisuli River you pass through some really beautiful scenery and is a wonderful experience. There are a few bits of white water which add to the excitement but this is not a difficult river and the rafting is suitable for people with no previous experience. Of course, it changes with the seasons but a support vehicle is always close at hand should the river be too fierce for you at any point!

Chitwan is a really fabulous part of Nepal and you'll see some of the diverse wildlife that live down in the Terai. That's an area of grassland plains and forest that stretches for miles along the foothills of the Himalayas.

Following your time in Chitwan you return to Kathmandu and enjoying a full day's tour of the Kathmandu Valley. This includes a trip to the medieval town of Bhaktapur, famed for its Newari craftsmanship and architecture, and to the Pashupatinath Temple, with its tiered golden roof and silver doors. And we'll take you to Boudhanath, the world's largest stupa and a major site of veneration for Buddhists.
