What Makes This Trip Special

Breathe in the culture and mountains of Nepal. A truly unique itinerary for travellers who want to connect with the Himalayas. Thousands of years of tradition have led to this tour design, as we meet a range of Himalayan ethnic groups and share their companionship.

A journey that begins in Kathmandu, takes in views of the Annapurnas and Langtang, and invites you to share moments of tranquility with singing bowls, meditation and relaxation. Think of this as a Himalayan version of “Forest Bathing”, but with monks and nuns and joss sticks and magnificent mountains and the spring air in Pokhara.

Your escort for this journey is Adrian Tischler, a qualified yoga instructor with a decade of experience living and studying in the sub-continent. His gentle guidance along the way will open the door to relaxation sessions and even a few yoga classes, if you feel inclined, while you breathe in the spring air of the Himalayas.

FAQ for Nepal

How Long Have you Been Running Tours to Nepal?

It's been ten years since Ewen Bell first started guiding trips to Nepal. His favourite season is winter when the air is cool and dry in the mountains, giving clear views of snow-capped mountains.

How Much Cash Do I Need?

Not much at all. All meals, permits and ground transport are covered already. If you're not buying much in the way of souvenirs then $20 for a sim card and maybe another $50 for drinks should cover the basics. We also provide a more detailed "Pre-Departure Pack" when you book in the tour.

Are The Walks Hard?

No, most of the walking is very very easy. There are a few steep bits that are very short, but we also have the added impact of a little altitude in the mix. So we do everything gentle, and every walk is optional.

What Shoes Are Good Shoes?

The terrain in Nepal is always uneven, which means solid walking boots with high ankle support is recommended. We don't do heavy walks on the Be Your Best tours, but we do expect to travese dusty and rocky trails.

How Cold Are The Guesthouses?

Very cold. We travel on the edges of winter and the night air can drop to zero degrees. Guesthouses are energy poor and offer no heating, so we supply sleeping bags for additional warmth where necessary. Some people feel the cold more than others, while some people get too warm inside the sleeping bags. Please note that not all our itineraries travel to higher elevations or use trekkers guesthouses.

Do We Have Electricity Every Night

Yes. Everywhere we travel is good for electricity, although the supply can drop out for hours at a time. Charging camera batteries or a laptop each day is never a problem.

Will I Have Mobile and Internet Access?

Yes there is mobile networks at every place we stay on the tour. The networks do vary so roaming connections may vary also. We recommend a local sim-card for cheap internet access as hotel internet is often slow.

How Do I Get A Visa?

We supply all travellers with a detailed Pre-Departure Pack when they book for a tour, which includes how to apply for "Visa on Arrival" and a lot of other information such as help with packing. For more general information we recommend you read through the brochure shown below.

What Restrictions are In Place in Nepal?

Masks are a part of daily life in Nepal and will be required in many public settings. We ask that all travellers obey all local public health regulations during the trip.
