Feature adventure holidays
We’ve developed a range of dedicated solo holidays & solo travel packages; exclusively for people booking on their own. Around 40% of all our passengers are solo travellers.
If you think that Nepal is just for trekkers, think again. This fabulous country’s rich history and culture were evident throughout the tour from the fabulous architecture of Bhaktapur to the spiritual devotion shown by villagers in the small towns like Nuwakot and Bandipur.
For me it was beauty of the small villages like Nuwakot that proved the highlight. We stayed in the ‘Famous Farm’ which is a beautifully restored traditional property in a truly idyllic setting overlooking the hills and valleys of Himalayan foothills with the snow capped high peaks visible to the north. The friendly staff provided us with excellent food made from the produce of their own organic garden.
In Nepal the high mountains are never far away and the dominating Annapurna range viewed from the lakeside town of Pokhara form one of the most impressive skylines anywhere in the world. We rose early to see the view from Sarankot a ridge above the town as the first rays of dawn illuminated the glaciated peaks. The great arc of the Annapurnas surround the peak of Machapuchare - the most perfect mountain I’ve ever seen.
Our visit to the Chitwan was the perfect end to the tour. The national park is in the warmer lowlands near the border with India and is a great place to see the endangered one-horned rhinoceros. On an early morning elephant-back safari we saw a total of five of the extraordinary creatures at close quarters. They didn’t seem concerned as our elephant drivers took us to within about 10m. The dugout ride down the Rapti River gave me a chance to indulge in a little bird watching as there are many colourful species to be seen.
