We like to organize our trip to Nepal as an individual private trip. With a German-speaking guide you will actively and individually discover unique mountain landscapes in the foothills of the Annapurna Massif, mixed with a highly interesting culture. Unforgettable experiences away from large streams of visitors make the journey a unique experience. Immerse yourself in the wonder world in the Himalayas – Nepal.

A journey for mountain, animal and culture lovers through one of the most beautiful countries in Asia. Nepal is a land of contrasts. At a distance of only 200 km, you will experience the snow-capped, highest mountains in the world as far as the subtropical lowland of the Terai on the Indian border.

The highlight of our trip is a 7-day Himalayan trekking tour in the foothills of the Annapurna Massive, with easy day hikes and a walking time of 4 – 6 hours daily. This unusual tour takes us to an area that gives us unique panoramas of the Himalayan mountains. Close enough to touch, we admire the mighty Giants of the Himalayas with the snow-covered Annapurna massif (8,091 m), the Dhaulagiri massif (8,167 m) and Machapuchare (6,993 m). The daily sections are unproblematic and mountaineering knowledge is not required. The hikes are to be mastered for every mountain lover with average condition. The luggage transport is taken over by porters, the participants carry only a light day baggage.

Another highlight of the trip is a visit to the Chitwan National Park in the lowlands of the Terai. It was founded in 1973 as a sanctuary for the endangered rhinos and in 1984 declared a national park by UNESCO. On the back of tame elephants, we roam through the jungle. The reserve is home to rhinos, deer, wild boars, crocodiles, alligators, river dolphins, tigers, leopards and more than 400 species of birds.

The ancient imperial cities of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur are Nepal’s cultural heritage. They are pearls of architecture. Between temples, pagodas, stupas, palaces, bazaars and markets we move in another world.
