Nepal 10-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 15 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Nepal.

Combine a classic short trek in the Himalaya with multiple days of sightseeing on a 10-day trip. Consider spending 4 days on the Ghandruk Trek in the Annapurna foothills, and 4 days viewing wildlife in subtropical Chitwan National Park. Or, take advantage of your extra days and access more remote trekking areas—the 7-day trek to sacred Phoksundo Lake, for example, is in the far-west Dolpo region and requires multiple flights to reach. And non-trekkers can combine tours of the Kathmandu and Pokhara Valleys for culture and adventure off the trail.
