Nepal is a country that leaves a profound impact on everyone who ventures within its mountain-ensconced realms. From the ancient religious sites of Kathmandu, Muktinath and Pokhara to the breathtaking natural architecture of the Himalayas – and, of course, the highest mountain in the world – it’s not hard to see why.

This is a land of striking contrasts. The cacophony of downtown Kathmandu sits in perfect parallel to the utter serenity of the spectacular Himalayan peaks, where you can hike for hours with nothing but the gently fluttering prayer flags adorning the trails.

There are countless incredible treks in Nepal just waiting to be explored. Perhaps the famous Mount Everest Base Camp trek has always held pride of place on your travel bucket list, or you fancy ticking off the “best long-distance trek in the world”: the Annapurna Circuit – here is where you will find your calling. Or, you could even climb Himalayan summit, be it Island Peak or the formidable Ama Dablam.

Whether you’re looking for adrenaline-inducing trekking adventures or an introspective hike in unrivalled scenery, Nepal is a mountain lover’s heaven.

However, it’s not all about the towering summits and rugged ridge-lines. Nepal is also a country with a fascinating and unique history, which trekkers can experience throughout their trip.

From the moment you arrive in the bustling backstreets of Thamel, Kathmandu, it will become apparent that you are in the midst of an incredibly diverse and vibrant culture. Street vendors scour the crowds for a sale whilst sitting beneath ancient stupas strewn with Buddhist prayer flags. Businesspeople stop for a spot of dal bhat, whilst monkeys watch on from the electrical lines above, awaiting the opportunity for leftovers.

Yet, just beyond the cityscape, one can always observe a majestic backdrop of the highest mountain range in the world. Just miles beyond the city and into the foothills, hikers will find old Bhotian buildings, virtually untouched for centuries, and ancient temples with their prayer wheels leading the way up the mountains.

In Nepal, everything leads you to the mountains – the high stupas, even the prayer flags that bless every path. All you have to do is follow, and prepare to be amazed.

“We have just had our first experience with The Bucket List Company, and are already planning our second trip! We completed Everest Base Camp in March 2019. If you want an amazing adventure with no stress or worries… this is it!

The attention to detail was excellent at all times. You are looked after from the moment you book your trip until you return to the UK! The guides and porters were amazing – nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to The Bucket List Company, dreams do come true!”

“Fantastic trip to Everest basecamp from start to finish. Can’t fault Keith and his team both English and Nepalese for the help and guidance they give throughout the tour. I’m already planning my next trip with the bucket list company. I would 100% recommend them not just for the trip itself but the knowledge and experience you get before, during and after.”

“Everest base camp 03/19. Easy booking system, monthly payment option- perfect. Always pleasant, knowledgeable, happy to help/ chat if any queries on phone, email, social media. Straight forward contact with lead guys Keith & Jake from airport and throughout trip. Made it so easy to simply turn up to all overnight stays, tours etc. Appear to have established good contacts/ company in Nepal. Everything ran smoothly throughout, no issue, would book with the bucket list company again.”

“When you book a Bucket List experience you want the company you book with to understand that for you this is once in a lifetime event and make it that little bit different. Having travelled with three other ‘group travel’ companies I can say that TBLC understand more than most that the little things matter. The pre travel part is stand out; from a welcome gift on booking, monthly installment options or the excellent training weekends you get an early impression you will be looked after and when on trip you certainly are. I recently returned from EBC and the organisation an execution of the trip was excellent, once travelling you don’t have to think about a thing

And the care and attention from both UK and local guides cannot be faulted. A couple of days I found the going very hard but I always had someone by my side for reassurance and encouragement which I have to say probably got me to Base Camp. I would have no hesitation
in recommending TBLC to others, they’re a first class company who helped me tick a biggie off that bucket list!”

“Great staff, very helpful throughout the whole process, they have a very good payment method which makes any trip affordable! Even to a student like myself! 

The trip was very well organised, and any question was answered with confidence there and then, showing great knowledge of the country and trek we were doing. 

The staff were also very motivating, I don’t think I would’ve made it to Base Camp if it weren’t for Keith helping me… All the guides were amazing, working throughout the day, and then in their breaks making sure we were all comfortable with food and drink (included in the price).

I do not have a bad word to say about the trip, and I will be booking another one with the Bucket List team in the close future! 

P.S. ‘Rate Keith’s Jake’ 9.56/10. With .44 taken away for lack of beard.”
