This one week itinerary in Croatia will let you see the highlights of this beautiful country. Starting in Zagreb, the capital, and making your way down south to Dubrovnik, stopping to see Plitvice National Park, the ancient port cities of Zadar and Split, then spending a few days relaxing on the beach on the island of Hvar before ending your trip back in Dubrovnik.
Ranging from 12-16 days, this famous trek takes you to the foot of Mt. Everest and is steeped in mountaineering history. Not only does it have some of the most iconic mountain views in the world, it is rich in culture and heritage of the Sherpa people.
More similar to Tibet than Nepal, the Upper Mustang Valley is marked by its stark beauty, unique culture, and was until 2006 its own mountain kingdom.

“kimkim was a life-saver! I had no time to figure out our fast-approaching vacation trip to Hawaii. kimkim came in and swept me off my feet to vacationland, without a care in the world. After asking all the right questions about what would make a "perfect vacation" for us, they quickly created a trip personalized to match our every request, and made us want to jump on the plane immediately!”
“I used kimkim in January 2015 to book a trip to Nepal for me and my husband. They provided immediate access to a truly knowledgeable local resource that helped with every detail of my trip planning from choosing the best hotels to questions about what to pack. The whole team at kimkim was extremely easy to work with and they gave us the resources we needed to feel confident and excited about every detail of our trip. I highly recommend working with kimkim.”

For many of us, travel planning has become a painful experience; we spend countless hours researching online and are left with too many choices.
Instead, imagine talking with a local travel expert, someone who knows the destination well and can offer curated travel advice. A person who loves recommending great experiences based on your personal interests. And what if they could put the entire trip together to easily review and book in one place?
We believe this is the future of travel — bringing the local expert back into the trip planning process equipped with the tools to put together a truly amazing trip.
We're excited to be part of your travel experience, whether it's a once-in-a-lifetime adventure or a short holiday with your family.
