Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their trips

Introducing Nepal

Nepal is a travel destination unlike any other. Visiting this relatively small, mountainous country with its amazing people leaves nobody untouched. Its amazing treks, views, and culture are second to none. Read more

When is the best time to visit? 
Spring and fall are Nepal's peak trekking seasons, but winter and summer are becoming increasingly popular, as well. For Nepal's jungle region, Chitwan, the best time to visit is in the winter. Read all the details here

Things to do in Nepal
Nepal has many epic treks to choose from, ranging from a few days to several weeks. Newer activities such as mountain biking and rafting are on the rise. Discover all the possibilities in our overview of the best things to do in Nepal, or browse our growing list of Nepal Tours.

How many days do you need to visit Nepal?
Although 3-5 days is enough to explore the Kathmandu Valley, we recommend spending at least a week in Nepal where you can combine Kathmandu or Pokhara with a short (but rewarding) trek. With more time, you can tackle a longer, more challenging trek that takes you higher up into the Everest, Annapurna, or Mustang region. For any trip over 7 days, you also have enough time to visit Chitwan, Nepal's jungle region, to catch a glimpse of wildlife. Read more

Getting around Nepal
Kathmandu is Nepal's main hub and all of your adventures will begin from there. There's a limited public bus network, but the best way to get around is by private jeep and domestic flight. Learn more about your options of getting to Pokhara, getting to Chitwan, and getting to Lukla, the jumping-off point for Everest. Read more

Explore trips by duration: 5 days · 6 days · 7 days · 8 days · 9 days · 10 days · 11 days · 12 days · 13 days · 14 days · 15 days · 16 days · 21 days

Manaslu Circuit Trek: The Ultimate Off-The-Beaten-Path Trek in Nepal - 18 Days

The Manaslu Circuit Trek features everything you'd want from a classic trek in Nepal: Epic scenery, intimate encounters with local people and their ancient culture and a 5100m (17,000-ft.) Himalayan pass crossing. Kimkim's trusted partners in Nepal organize weekly group departures during the Spring and Fall trekking seasons, as well as private treks that can run on any date from February to June and September through November.

Three Passes Trek: Ultimate Trek in the Everest Region - 22 Days

The Three Passes trek is the ultimate Everest experience. This route takes in all the highlights—both in terms of mountain views and local Sherpa culture—and combines them into a complete journey through the Everest region. Keep in mind, this trek is one of the most challenging teahouse treks in Nepal.

This short trek gives you access to one of Nepal's classic viewpoints of the Annapurna range. You'll follow ancient trails that connect local communities, pass through blooming rhododendron forests and rice paddies, and enjoy views of snow-covered mountains. At night, sleep in comfortable teahouses located in small villages along the route.

Looking down the Langtang Valley

Langtang Trek - 11 Days

The Langtang Valley has long been a favorite trek due to its expansive views, interesting Tamang culture, relatively gentle pace and accessibility from Kathmandu. The 2015 earthquake and subsequent landslide had an enormous effect on the region, but aid and reconstruction have recently reopened this valley to trekking again. Not only is it still a beautiful trek, your visit will also provide vital support for local livelihoods.

Beautiful Gokyo lake and village

Gokyo Lakes Trek - 16 Days

The sparkling, pristine blue and green waters of the Gokyo Lakes are one of Nepal’s most memorable sights. They comprise the highest freshwater lake system in the world, at around 5,000 meters. The Gokyo Lakes trek is ideal for people who want to trek in the Everest region, but who want more variety of views and fewer nights spent at very high altitude.

How Many Days Should You Spend in Kathmandu?
How Many Days Should You Spend in Kathmandu?

Maddeningly chaotic but never dull, Kathmandu is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, and religions. Not merely a jumping-off point for a Himalaya trek, it's also a worthwhile destination in its own right, with a legacy of myths and legends seen in the historic pagodas lining its dusty streets. Even if you're here for just one day you can profit from the highlights of this uniquely beautiful metropolis.

13 Days in Nepal - 6 Unique Itinerary Ideas

With thirteen days in Nepal, you can spend time in a few destinations to get a taste of what the country has to offer or you can commit to one particular region, which you can explore by foot, raft, or safari (and in some cases, all three). For trekking, consider getting away from crowds: Pikey Peak, the Khopra Ridge, and the Dolpo region are off-the-beaten-path, offer incredible views, and opportunities to learn about local villages and their heritages. You can also travel through Nepal in style; stay in luxury accommodations after a day of trekking, take a helicopter tour of the Himalaya, or sleep in a deluxe resort in a jungle, where you’ll be lulled to sleep by the trumpets of the property’s resident elephants. Read on for some inspiring ideas!

Phoksundo Lake
Lake Phoksundo Trek - 13 Days

This epic yet fairly easy trek takes you through the vast Dolpo area of Western Nepal; because it's only been open to trekkers since 1989, this is one of the least-explored regions of this country. You'll pass through wonderful Himalayan forests, traditional villages, picturesque rivers, and magnificent waterfalls. The highlight is Lake Phoksundo, considered a natural treasure in Nepal and is sacred to Buddhists and followers of the Bonpo religion. Along the way, you'll see rich flora and fauna, including musk deer, blue sheep, great Tibetan sheep, Himalayan tahr, and perhaps even the very rare and elusive snow leopard.

Trek to Khopra Danda · Nepal - Nov 26 - Dec 2, 2019

Traveler: Cathy P. - Local specialist: Kripa Sunuwar

We had a wonderful time on our 7 day trek to Khopra Danda which we organised through Kripa from Himalayan Trails. She was so easy to deal with and informative. Our guide Tandu and porter Chhing were marvellous. They made sure that we were always looked after and comfortable. We had great weather and clear skies so the views of the Annapurna mountains was breathtaking. There was plenty of walking up and down hills so our trekking poles got plenty of use.

Truly a trip of a lifetime and an experience that will always stay with us.
Nepal was always a destination I've wanted to visit. Sangita was an almost pleasure in lining up a trip that covered all you would want out of a trip. Always available, plenty of recommendations.
The entire experience was seamless. A perfect mix of culture, food, history, adventure & relaxation.

Sangita & Bipin are wonderful warm & welcoming. The ideal host and can easily tell they love what they do and go the extra mile. When I travel I look for those unique experiences. We are very grateful to Sangita & Bipin for showing us their country, traditions and the time we got to explore Nepal.

We felt that warm hospitality of feeling at home while being away. A lot of thought, care & personal touch went into the experience. Well organized, spaced out and perfectly fitted.
Each stop had it's own unique feel & charm. The trekking was an incredible experience and definitely something we'd like to do again.

We really enjoyed the welcoming dinner & Farewell dinner with Sangita & Bipin left us with a warm fuzzy feeling at the beginning & the end. I highly recommend Sangita for booking your trip to Nepal! Truly a gem of a trip & unforgettable time in Nepal.

Thanks so much for a trip of a lifetime

All the best from Canada - Namaste :)

What a fabulous introduction to Nepal my recent trip was. Whilst primarily visiting Nepal to attend a conference, I organised a 12 day tour to follow the conference using kimkim and their local Nepalese travel agent Sangita & Bipin and the team from HNB. “Wow” did I hit the jackpot, Sangita & Bipin were fabulous and put together a trip to encompass all my requirements of wildlife, natural and cultural sites along with an insight into to the cultural history of Nepal. From the first meeting Sangita was a true professional, continuity providing advise, updates on tour program and where needed calming words whilst I experience the frustrations of airport delays through out the length of the tour. In fact she went far and beyond when one of my travelling colleagues inadvertently left some expensive electronic items in her hotel room and didn’t realise till we were some two hours out of Kathmandu and could not contact the hotel by mobile phone - a quick WhatsApp message to Sangita and within five minutes the items had been located and placed in safe storage for pickup on return to Kathmandu. Sangita and her team use top rated guides, drivers and provided excellent accommodation during the length of my trip. A highlight was having breakfast on the balcony of the Sarangkot Mountain Resort overlooking Annapurna south mountain on what was an exceptionally clear morning. There were many trip highlights from the overnight trek to Australia camp with guide Bhim who is a top rate guide and certainly made the trek the fantastic experience it was, but the one highlight that will last a life time was the cultural tour of Kathmandu provided by Bipin, I can’t say enough about this experience-for me this was what the essence of what I wanted an insight into the cultural history of Nepal. Yes you can explore Kathmandu on your own with out a guide, but you don’t experience or receive the insight into the culture delivered by a local with an extensive knowledge and more so a passion for the history of his country - Bipin your in-depth tour will always be a lasting memory. So if you are planning a visit to Nepal for a multi- day trek or just to experience all it has to offer non trekking visitors I can highly recommend Sangita and Bipin and the HNB team they run a five star operation.
