Nepal Travel Insights

Buddhist prayer flags above the valley along the Manaslu Circuit trek

Manaslu Circuit Trek - The Ultimate off-the-beaten-path Trek in Nepal - 13 to 19 days

The Manaslu Circuit trek is far less crowded than other classic treks in Nepal and remains a true remote adventure, despite its increasing in popularity since teahouses were built here in 2010. The Manaslu trek features all the great aspects of a classic trek in Nepal: epic scenery, spectacular suspension bridge crossings and a 5100m (17,000-ft.) Himalayan pass.

Everest Base Camp Trek

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.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

One of Nepal's most classic short treks, this route takes you to the foot of some of the tallest mountains in the world. Along the way, you'll spend the night in two famous base camps with close-up views of Annapurna I and Machapuchare.

Khopra Danda Trek

The Khopra Danda trek (also known as the Khopra Ridge trek) is a great alternative to the more popular (and more crowded) Ghorepani trek, taking you higher still to another great viewpoint of the Annapurnas.

Upper Mustang Trek

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.

The 10 Best Treks in Nepal

Nepal is home to some of the most spectacular treks in the world. While the most famous treks such as Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit have earned their reputation for a reason, they've become a victim of their own success and are no longer the most highly ranked treks due to large crowds of adventure seekers. These treks still make the list but are no longer on top. Up and coming treks, such as the Manaslu Circuit Trek and the Three Passes Trek, are now considered better options for those hikers who seek the ultimate Himalayan experience.

Best Things to Do in Nepal

With the highest mountains in the world, Nepal is a diverse country that rises from dense jungle to snow-clad peaks in just over 100 miles. Its capital and largest city, Kathmandu, is a bustling metropolis with deep ties to history, culture and ancient religion. Its religions - Hinduism and Buddhism - melt together and lure Western travelers. With unparalleled terrain and adventure, Nepal never fails to deliver an unforgettable experience.

When is the Best Time of Year to Visit Nepal?

One of the most common questions we get from travelers is "When is the best time of year to visit Nepal?" The standard answer that you’ll find in most guidebooks is that spring and autumn are best for visiting Nepal, since the weather tends to be moderate and stable, with clear skies. However, due to the complex nature of Nepal’s geography and climate there is a lot more to this. An ever increasing number of travelers visit Nepal in winter and summer, and for good reason. With the right information, travel plan and preparation Nepal is a great year-round destination.

Nature and wildlife tour, Nepal - Nov 19 - Nov 30, 2016

Traveler: Daniela D. - Local specialist: Mads Mathiasen

The organization was superb. We do these kind of trips a lot and I can honestly say that we have never had one as well organized as this one. At every step, the drivers or guides were always ready for us and every aspect happened like clockwork. We live in Germany where you expect that kind of organization, but to enjoy it in Nepal hardly seemed possible. Our congratulations on a job well done! Also, the guides were all fantastic - friendly and knowledgeable. Most national parks in the world... read more

The organization was superb. We do these kind of trips a lot and I can honestly say that we have never had one as well organized as this one. At every step, the drivers or guides were always ready for us and every aspect happened like clockwork. We live in Germany where you expect that kind of organization, but to enjoy it in Nepal hardly seemed possible. Our congratulations on a job well done! Also, the guides were all fantastic - friendly and knowledgeable. Most national parks in the world have guides who know the big animals and birds of prey, but our guides in Chitwan knew every bird and butterfly as well.

We discussed the trip and made changes to his original concept several times but he never tried to force us into his plan and cheerily re-worked the itinerary until we were happy with it.

Traveler: Natasha A. - Local specialist: Raj Gyawali

Raj was extremely helpful from the very first day. He was very approachable. He was also very hospitable after we arrived in Nepal. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our trip and will definitely be recommending both Raj (Social Tours) and Kimkim to future travellers.

Ghorepani poonhill trek, Nepal - Nov 19 - Nov 26, 2016

Traveler: Axel A. - Local specialist: Ngima Dorji Sherpa

We have been home for about one and a half weeks now. We are really happy with how our trip went. The views were stunning and I think that both me and Victor would like to return someday for a longer trek. Thank you for all the help. It would have been some much harder to do without you two.

Ngima and our guide Lhakpa were great and everything just worked.

“Looking to do Khopra Ridge Trek this October”

We are looking at the Khopra danda trek for 2 reasons: we want to trek a bit longer than 4 days, but the full Annapurna is a bit too much for us. Also, we like the idea of the Khopra bit of the trek being a bit off the beaten track

“Looking for a trek lasting 4-5 days”

While we are in the country for 8 days, we have an event we need to attend in kathmandu so would be most interested in a trek lasting 4-5 days.
