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.

What our Customers Say

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:

I had the pleasure of travelling to Nepal with The Bucket List Company. From attending a training weekend in February right through to our final landing at Heathrow after our trip to base camp in October, everything was thought out and carried out in a non pressurised professional way. I would highly recommend this company to anybody.

“Great adventure made even better by the team at the bucket list company. Nothing was too much and their calm heads when there were some challenges helped everybody have an amazing time. If you’re going to Base Camp, choose these guys as you are in safe and friendly hands.”

“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!”

“Faultless Everest Base Camp trek in March 2019. When you book a trip on your bucketlist its a once in a lifetime experience and you want to have the best experience ever. 

With the Bucketlist Co. you come to realise that the careful planning and thought that goes into their trips ensures you get the experience you want. The whole trip ran without hiccups and everyone from guides to fellow travellers helped make this the trip it was.

Would not hesitate to recommend this company or book another trip with them in the future.”

“Just got back from the Everest Base Camp trek. It was an absolutely amazing experience. Would definitely recommend The Bucket List Company. Their UK leaders and local guides made sure that everyone was safe and well looked every day of the trip. I have been on two training weekends prior to departure, which were also very well organised and took place at great locations in Wales. Everyone at TBLC are super friendly and ready to answer your questions any time before, during or after the trip. Booking in advance and being able to spread the payments meant that I could afford the trip of my dreams despite being a uni student. No hidden costs, kit list received well in advanced so again it was easy to tick everything off it over a longer period of time. 

Already booked two other trips. Huge thanks to the whole team, especially Keith (company owner) and Jake (best “not a tour guide” leader) for making our trip unforgettable! Can’t wait for the next adventure with the Bucket List Company!”

“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.”
