Indeed everything about this part of Asia feels like Mother Nature's carefully curated exhibition, which makes the culture that springs from it all the more fascinating. First there's the singular capital, Kathmandu, one of the oldest inhabited places on earth, full of beautiful temples and vibrant festivities. Everything here is built to survive the elements, from landscape-traversing rickshaws to a cuisine shaped by often harsh conditions.
Few places in the world will make you feel like such an intrepid explorer, but navigating both the natural wonders and cultural specificity of Nepal requires a little help. That's where Culture Trip steps in. Our 11-day adventure, starting in Kathmandu, provides a truly authentic Nepalese experience. We'll take you on rickshaws around the city, on a village excursion to see an awe-inspiring temple complex, and to meet an Everest summiteer.
You'll also get more than your fair share of outdoor adventure. Boating on the second-largest lake in Nepal, rafting down the Seti River, tiger- and leopard-spotting on a wildlife safari, and a mind-bogglingly scenic hike are all on the itinerary. And if you're intrigued by the local cuisine, how about a lesson on making steamed momo dumplings? Don't worry, you’ll eat them after.
