Group and Club Organisers

If you’re organising a trip for a group or a club we will offer one free place for every 10 bookings made. You can use this for your own travel, to reduce the overall cost of the trip for everyone or even offer it as a fantastic prize for your group members or for charity. Contact us for more information and for conditions.

Travelling On Your Own?

Many of our clients are travelling alone but want to join a group trek or trip for the group atmosphere and to get the best value for money. We are happy to arrange for you to join a trip or to find other solo travellers interested in forming a group. We won’t ask you to pay single supplements as we’ll arrange for you to share a room with someone of the same sex. If you end up with a single room or tent we won’t charge any extra but if you specifically request a single room or tent we’ll have to make a small charge for this service. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Mountain Flights to Everest

Mountain flights have become a popular tourist attraction in Nepal. Four airlines offer regular flights into the snow capped peaks of the Himalayas, the closest you can come to Everest, the highest spot on earth, without having to climb it! These flights offer an hour’s panoramic viewing of the Himalaya. Travellers leave Kathmandu in the early morning for an hour of spectacular mountain scenery. All passengers have a window seat and receive a map of the Himalayan range. The crew provide local knowledge pointing out the peaks as you pass and there is opportunity to get an even closer view and excellent photo opportunities by visiting the cockpit. A great short but memorable experience.

Jungle Safaris

Jungle safari by charter elephantWhile the high Himalaya makes up Nepal’s northern region, the southern lowland, know as the Terai, is covered with dense tropical jungles teeming with diverse wildlife and exotic birds. Here you will find some of the most exciting safari destinations in the world, travelling into deep jungle on elephant back – what we call a ‘silent safari’ by charter elephant, to view animals in their natural habitat. Other thrills of the safari include canoe rides on the jungle rivers, nature walks, bird watching excursions and village tours. The Royal Chitwan National Park (932 sq. km) is the most popular safari destination with more than 43 species of animal including the endangered One-Horned Rhino, Royal Bengal Tiger, Ghariyal Crocodile, Four-Horned Antelope, Striped Hyena and the Gangetic Dolphin. Chitwan is close to Kathmandu and easily accessible - only 165km overland, just 25 minutes flight to Bharatpur airport adjoining the Park or a relaxing river raft away. Safaris can be your main adventure and short safaris (for example 2-3 days) can be combined with treks or other activities as a very memorable ‘extra’.

Special celebrations, functions, group receptions or events

It can sometimes be difficult, time consuming or almost impossible to try to organise a special event or function in an unfamiliar country, where you may not have the necessary contacts or local information that make things easier. If you’d like help with planning a special celebration, function, event or reception for 2 to 200 (or more) guests, let us know what you’re looking for and we can help with all the planning and organisation, including finding a venue, organising menus, venue styling and decoration, issuing invites, and more.

Personal Shopping Guide

For all serious shoppers! If you’re looking for something specific or simply want a knowledgeable local guide to help with your purchases and take you to the best retail locations, we are able to provide a personal shopping guide for you whether it’s for an hour, half a day, a full day or more. We can also arrange a car and driver to transport you and your purchases to your accommodation so you don’t have to worry about how to get it all back. Whilst we don’t organise overseas shipping ourselves, we can help you with your arrangements to do so. And if you inform us in advance, we can also locate the very best places and source the items you are looking for at the best quality and prices.

Thrill Seekers

For those looking for an extra adrenaline rush, we offer a number of activities to whet your appetite. We offer all of these activities either as the main focus of your holiday or in combination with any of our treks, tours, safaris or other activities. Priced from only £45. Contact us for details.

Rafting and Kayaking

White Water Rafters

Nepal has a reputation as one of the best destinations in the world for white water rafting. Its thundering waters, coming from the glaciers of the mighty Himalaya, provide unmatched thrills for rafting and truly immersing yourself in the landscape. Choose from some of the following adrenaline rushes:

The Trisuli River: Grade 3
  One of the most popular of Nepal’s raftable rivers. With easy road access and proximity to Kathmandu, this river ride offers plenty of excitement for first time rafters. You can even combine this with a trip to Pokhara or to the Royal Chitwan National Park.
     
The Kaligandaki River: Grade 4+
  120km of continuous challenges, winding through remote canyons and deep gorges for three days of intense rapids among stunning wilderness and mountain views. Trips on the Kaligandaki begin and end in Pokhara.
     
The Bhote Khosi Grade 5+
  This is a two day run of pure adrenaline, only 3 hours from Kathmandu. 26km of continuous white water soaks rafters as you shoot through a maze of canyons and boulders. Swimsuits and adrenaline junkies only.
     
The Marshyangdi Grade 5+
  The raging Marshyangdi run is four days of uninterrupted white water. Flowing through the gorges of the Annapurnas, and sandwiched between 52km of boiling foam and towering peaks. Trips on this run start from Pokhara.
     
The Karnali River Grade 5+
  Nepal’s longest and largest river, located in the far west. To arrive at the Karnali’s banks requires a two day trek from Surkhet in the Terai region. Spectacular landscapes, abundant wildlife, narrow gorges and the most challenging rapids are the attractions of this serious expedition rafting river. During most of this trip you’ll travel through wilderness untouched by human habitation.
     
The Sunkosi Grade 5+
  This is Nepal’s second offering for serious expedition rafting, more accessible than the Karnali and only 3 hours from Kathmandu. The Sunkosi offers an incredible stretch of exhilarating white water with a run of 270km requiring 8 to 10 days to complete and with road access only at the beginning and end of this trip.

Microlighting Over the Pokhara Valley

Take a journey through nature and enjoy a 15, 30 or 60 minute microlight flight over the Pokhara Valley. Fly over Buddhist monasteries and beautiful Lake Phewa, see Fish Tail Peak close up and enter the hidden and remote Seti Valley.

High Himalaya Skiing

Working with our Himalayan partners, we are the only travel operators to offer high Himalayan skiing for a real thrill on one of Nepal’s highest walk up trekking peaks.

Paragliding

For the more adventurous, a paragliding trip (tandem or solo) will take you over some of the best scenery on earth as you share airspace with Himalayan Griffin vultures, eagles and kites and float over villages, monasteries, lakes and jungle, absorbing the spectacular views of the majestic Himalaya from a unique perspective.

Bungy Jumping

One of the world’s longest bungy jumps is set up on a bridge straddling the Bhote Kosi gorge near the border with Tibet. At 160m drop into the gorge this is higher than the highest bungy in New Zealand and is becoming a very popular adrenaline rush. The recently introduced option of swing bungy is another increasingly popular option. Many travellers choose to combine a bungy jump with white water rafting or a short safari.

Private Charter Helicopter flights over Kathmandu or Pokhara Valley

We can arrange private charter helicopter flights to take you over the Kathmandu or Pokhara Valley for magnificent views. Another option is to retrace part of Sir Edmund Hillary’s expedition route including a visit to famous Tengboche Monastery in the lap of Everest.

Elephant Polo

Welcome to polo with a difference! Every year in December polo enthusiasts flock to the annual World Elephant Polo Tournament in Chitwan, southern Nepal. Similar to horse polo –with the obvious (big) difference, nine elephants take to the field, each team with 4 elephants and one for the umpire. The player sits behind the elephant driver, working together in this game of strategy and speed. We can arrange trips to Chitwan National Park where the Polo Tournaments are held, including opportunities to share in giving the elephants a bath, enjoying a jungle safari by charter elephant, collecting food with them or even arranging a lesson in elephant polo and a chance to watch the Tournament in December. Please be aware that the Tournament is hugely popular and accommodation in particular gets booked up rapidly. Contact us early if you’re interested in attending a Tournament game.
