Nepal 7-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 17 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Nepal.

Seven days in Nepal is just enough time to complete a 4-day trek with enough time to get to and from the trailhead. In the Annapurna region, the Ghorepani or Ghandruk treks are both great options, while travelers interested in the Everest region can complete the Namche or Pikey Peak treks. If budget isn't a constraint, Everest Base Camp can be reached with a combination of trekking and an unforgettable helicopter ride. Not interested in trekking? A week is also sufficient for an in-depth cultural tour of the Kathmandu Valley, a city tour from Kathmandu to Bandipur, or a fast-paced tour of Nepal's Golden Triangle.
