A Quintessential Nepalese Luxury Experience
Nepal combines dramatic Himalayan views, enchanting golden temples, charming hillside villages and untamed jungle wildlife watching together to create one of the world's great travel destinations. The Nepal Himalaya is the ultimate goal for mountain lovers. Some of the Himalaya’s most iconic and accessible hiking is available here, with rugged trails to Everest, the Annapurnas and beyond. However, we prefer to see Nepal at a more refined pace, admiring the peaks over a sunset gin and tonic from a Himalayan viewpoint, casually strolling through the medieval city squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, and joining Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims on a spiritual stroll around centuries-old stupas and monasteries. Nepal is also a great place to learn about everything from Tibetan Buddhism to how to make the best dumplings. Learn about the rich history of local culture, while experiencing all the comforts of modern day high-end travel. Join us on a specially curated Nepalese cultural tour for discerning travelers!

Kathmandu, the largest city in Nepal, is the political and cultural capital of the country. Kathmandu is a city where ancient traditions rub shoulders with the latest technological advances. However, it is the grandeur of the past that enchants the visitor whose gaze may linger on an exquisitely carved wooden window frame, an 18th century bronze sculpture or the spiritually uplifting stupas. Like any big city, Kathmandu has seen rapid expansion in the last decade, but despite the hustle and bustle so typical of metropolitan cities, its people remain as refreshingly friendly as ever. Retaining its ancient traditions, Kathmandu is blessed by a Living Goddess and is enriched by endless ceremonial processions and events that take to the streets every now and then with throngs of devotees seeking blessings. These religious festivals are steeped in legend and are quite a spectacle with chariot processions and masked dancers often possessed by the spirits of deities

In Pokhara there are a number of adventure activities to keep you occupied including trekking, mountain flights, paragliding, boating, fishing, swimming and more.
Chitwan literally means “heart of the jungle”. In recent years Chitwan has jumped to the top of the list of things to do in Asia. It is a truly a wildlife adventure of a different kind – jungle safaris on elephant backs or jeeps, birdwatching, canoe rides and nature walks. The Chitwan National Park is Asia’s best preserved conservation area, where wildlife thrives and their habitat remains intact. Only half-hour flight from Kathmandu, the park lies in the Inner Terai lowlands and consists of Sal forests, tall elephant grasslands, hills, ox-box lakes and flood plains of the Narayani, Rapti and Reu rivers. Enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Natural) in 1984, the park spreads over an area of 932 sq. km
