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 Nepal Medley, our Michael Steigerwald proudly displays this much-loved land in its grand variety, offering everything from Himalayan lodge-to-lodge treks to visits to the country’s jungly lowlands, where tigers are still to be seen. These three trip modules are craftily designed to be taken as individual trips, or in one 22-day extravaganza, as each can dovetail seamlessly into the next. Hence, Lodge-to-Lodge Trekking in the (sublime) Annapurna Foothills ends on Day 7 at Pokhara, and the Bardia National Park can become Day 8 of a longer trip—or Day 1 of a shorter trip. Michael is ready to put it all together for you, in whatever form your schedule, ambition, and desire to experience Nepal dictate.
