Throughout the tour, you will stay in some of the best hotels and lodges in each region. We will arrange the best-recommended 3-star hotels with beds and breakfast. In Chitwan, you will have your breakfast, Lunch, and dinner. You can try different street foods or special local foods that are only available in certain places. Palpa and Kathmandu are famous for Newari food. If you want changes or improvements in the accommodation, we can make them at your request.
Usually, all breakfasts are included in the trip, and sometimes Lunch and dinner are included depending on the itinerary. Typical meals offered at the accommodations include some Nepalese dishes and some international cuisine of pizza and chips. However, as a responsible tour operator, we encourage you to consume local food whenever possible, as it supports the local economy, and this local food is always fresh.
You eat at the hotel where you stay (if included), our guide will suggest what is safe and suitable to eat there. Breakfast usually consists of porridge, eggs, bread, and fruit, Lunch is a simple meal based on pasta, rice, or noodles, and dinner is two courses consisting of soup and a main course. All drinks are at an additional cost.
Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation, and we do not charge an individual supplement. We believe that solo travellers should not pay extra for the journey. Single travellers joining a group trip will be accommodated in double or shared rooms with a person of the same gender during the trip. If you prefer your single room, you will have to pay for a single room supplement, although this is only available in Kathmandu, not on the trip.
A typical day
You will have the morning at leisure in the city, and after breakfast, you will depart shortly for a day tour. The day tour can last between 5 and 7 hours, depending on the routes. After the excursions, you can relax with a beer on the terrace of your lodge before dinner. Dinner is taken in the dining room, which is usually heated in some way. It is an excellent time to review the tours' events so far and do some general socializing. If dinner is not included in the tour price, you may take it to the restaurant of your choice.
About $400-600 (or the equivalent in Australian dollars, Euros, etc.) exchanged into local currency should be sufficient for various personal expenses, such as tips to the guide, drinks for all excursions and meals in town. It is not necessary to obtain local currency (Nepalese rupees) before departure. British Pounds, US Dollars, and Euros are also accepted for exchange in Nepal. If you prefer not to carry all your pocket money in cash, it is possible to withdraw money (Rupees only) from ATMs in Kathmandu and most cities using your debit or credit card.
Tipping is the best way of saying thank you for good service. Tips are not part of the salary of tour guides, porters, and drivers, but they are very much appreciated. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be contingent on good service. Tips are usually given at the end of the trip. It is better to do this as a group rather than individually. Most groups tip with a small ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last night to mark the end of the trip. The tip should be determined by the group as a whole, with everyone contributing equally that everyone is happy. We recommend 5-10% of your trip.
There is no baggage limit for excursions, but it should not weigh more than 15 kg if it is a trekking excursion. For the domestic flight to Chitwan, Pokhara, and Lumbini, there is a limit of 20 kg. It is possible to leave clothes or other items at the hotel in Kathmandu that is not needed on a trip
ATMs are available throughout the city area of Nepal, and their accessibility has gradually been extended to rural areas. In Pokhara and Kathmandu, numerous ATMs operate regularly and accept most international cards. In modern times, most cities and some places along the Everest Base Camp trekking routes have ATMs. The best places to find ATMs are around Thamel in Kathmandu and along the lakeshore in Pokhara.
Nepal has four distinct seasons: spring, summer (monsoon), autumn, and winter. Spring lasts from March to mid-May, with pretty warm days and some showers in late spring. Temperatures in spring are around 22-24°C.
The summer or monsoon season starts from May until August or the first week of September. The hills become lush and green during this season, while temperatures become hotter, reaching 30°C or sometimes higher during heat waves. Trekking in Nepal is highly uncomfortable in summer, as the trails become wet, muddy, and slippery.
Autumn begins in September and lasts until November. It becomes cool with clear skies, making it the most popular season for trekking in Nepal. During this season, temperatures are perfect. 25°C is a maximum during the day and a minimum of 10°C during cool nights. Typically, there are no more than 2 or 3 rainy days in Nepal during the autumn and winter months.
Winter in Nepal begins in December and lasts until February. Nights are freezing, with temperatures sometimes even below freezing. However, the maximum daytime temperature in winter can reach 20°C. During the winter season, the mountains are covered with snow and offer a breathtaking view of the towering Himalayan peaks.
There are many exciting things to do in Nepal for travellers of all types. Since Nepal is popularly known as the trekking land. Trekking is at the top of many things to do in Nepal. Nepal's most popular trekking tours are Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Langtang Valley Trek, Poon Hill Trek, Upper Mustang Trek, Gokyo Lakes Trek, and Gokyo Ri Trek, and many more. There is also the experience of helicopter tours on scenic flights over the snow-capped Himalayas. Nature and wildlife watching tour is another thing to do to take the opportunity to explore a typical Tharu village. Other things to do in Nepal include a private tour of the World Heritage sites in Kathmandu, a mountain biking tour, and many other adventure sports.
The standard voltage of electricity in Nepal is 230 V, and the frequency is 50 Hz. Suppose the standard voltage in your country is between 220 and 240 V, as is the case in the UK, Europe, Australia, and most countries in Asia and Africa. In that case, you can use your electrical or electronic equipment in Nepal without the need for a converter. However, if the standard voltage in your country is between 100 and 127 V, as is the case in the USA, Canada, and most countries in South America, you will need a voltage converter to use your devices. If you are unsure of the voltage, you can look on your device to see where you can find a label. If the label says something like "INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz", your device can be used in any country in the world.
The plugs and sockets used in Nepal are type C, D, and M, usually with three small or large round pins. Type C is the standard European plug, which also works with plug E and plugs F. Type D plugs are mainly used in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and many African countries and only work with D plugs. Type M is the same as type D but has larger pins and only works with M plugs.
Of course. It is a condition of signing up for one of our trips so that you are protected against total costs that may arise due to trip cancellation, flight delays, epidemics, pandemics, or other medical problems and accidents. If you plan a trekking trip, it is best to include high altitude medical insurance covering ambulance flights, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs. Keep in mind that the cost of emergency treatment, evacuation, and rescue is incredibly shocking in the event of illness or injury or any of the above. Therefore, we strongly recommend travel insurance for anyone signing up with us. We do not manage or sell insurance to our clients, so we advise you to do this yourself in your home country. There are many reliable insurance companies around the world where you can purchase your travel insurance.

In March 2019, we made our first visit
to Nepal. We were very well taken care of by Kishor, Kul and their staff.
The trip was a great success and allowed us to learn about the people's culture, customs, and way of life and enjoy spectacular views of the mountains and see the wildlife up close. We were fortunate to see one horn Rhino. Our nature guide in Chitwan gives us extensive information about the terrain, buildings, and people we saw.
We can wholeheartedly recommend this travel agency to anyone who wants to take a trekking tour in Nepal.
by Leonard N. Sanchez, USA
Kishor, Kul, and the other staff of
Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd helped me to have a great time in
beautiful Nepal. They advised and arranged buses and flights, tours, and treks.
They covered not only Nepal but also Tibet
The friendly and efficient service made me feel safe and relaxed during my time in Nepal. I have highly recommended it.
by Kelley D. Barron, USA
My husband and I just completed our trip
to Nepal, organized by the Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. Once
again, the organization was excellent, the quality of the accommodation chosen
for us was superb, and any unforeseen incidents were resolved quickly and
smoothly. The trip went like clockwork, and we were very fortunate to see the
beautiful tiger and rhino in Chitwan National Park. Our guide was excellent. He
is passionate about his country, and his professionalism and knowledge are
exceptional. It also carries over to his staff, all charming, friendly,
responsible, and attentive personalities. Many thanks to Kishor all Team for a
truly remarkable experience.
We look forward to revisiting Nepal very soon.
by Natalie Lacasse, France
From the moment we were met at the
airport by Kishor and his driver Vim, we knew we were in good hands. The
experience we had was something I will cherish for the rest of my life. Kisho
was an absolute gentleman at all times, always up for fun, very knowledgeable,
and most importantly, flexible. Our driver Vim was also immense, probably the
most patient driver globally, very articulate and knowledgeable himself. We
visited temples, palaces, went on safari in Chitwan National Park, lived like a
local for three days, danced, cooked excellent food, went fishing, watched
elephants (!), ate at some fantastic restaurants and stayed in a mix of hotels
and guesthouses and much more. Our schedule was packed; we were overwhelmed by
the country and the people. Kishor and the team mastered it for us, and I can't
recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much. Surely we will back again in
by Jeremy Bennetts, Australia
I spent a week in Nepal with two other
friends exploring Kathmandu, Pokhara Chitwan, Lumbini, and Nagarkot. At first,
I was scared to travel to a relatively unknown place. However, the whole
experience was pleasant, enjoyable, and worry-free, thanks to Kishor for
perfect organization. Kishor was well thought out the program put together: we could
see many sights without feeling too rushed or bored. The guides who accompanied
us to the sights were also very competent and friendly and offered exciting
insights into Nepalese history and culture. We especially enjoyed our stay in
Pokhara, where we could see the beautiful lakes, woke up to a view of the
Himalayan range, and watched the sunrise at Sarangkot.
Throughout the trip, Kishor made sure we sampled the delicious local food and made us feel welcome and comfortable in Nepal, spending time with us at meals and ensuring we were satisfied. He made a point of going over our itinerary with us and was responsive to our needs and expectations. I would revisit Nepal and would recommend them if you are looking for a fun, affordable, enjoyable, and carefree trip in Nepal :)
