Nepal is where many of us got serious about our love affair with mountains, with travel, and with the varietal inhabitants of the welcoming world. In A Nepal Medley, we proudly display this much-loved land in its grand variety, offering everything from Himalayan lodge-to-lodge hikes to river rafting to visits to the country’s jungly lowlands, where tigers are still to be seen. These four trip modules are craftily designed to be taken as individual trips, or in one 28-day extravaganza, as each can dovetail into the next seamlessly. Hence, Lodge-to-Lodge Trekking in the (sublime) Annapurna Foothills ends on Day 7 at Pokhara, and the Seti River Float can become Day 8 of a longer trip—or Day 1 of a shorter trip. We are ready to put it all together for you, in whatever form your schedule, ambition, and desire to experience Nepal dictate.

Consider these trip options as well:

Seti River Float
Day 1: drive to Damauli, start class 1 and 2 river raft, overnight camp on Seti River • Day 2: day at Seti River camp, with hikes to nearby villages • Day 3: more rafting, then drive to Kathmandu, Pokhara, or Royal Chitwan National Park. (UNESCO World Heritage site)

Bardia National Park
Day 1: fly to Nepalganj, drive to Bardia National Park, game viewing in the park • Day 2: game viewing from elephant back • Day 3: game drives, boat safari, jungle walks • Day 4: drive to Nepalganj, fly to Kathmandu.
