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:

“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.”

“I can’t thank these guys enough… I just completed Everest Base Camp, and what an amazing experience it has been. From the moment of booking to getting home, everything has been thought of. 

If you want a trip of a lifetime, with no hassle, meeting some amazing people, then book with these guys. I am already looking to book my next trip.”

“Just returned from the Mt. Toubkal trek – the first trip I have taken on my own. I had an absolutely amazing time, all made possible by The Bucket List Company.

Any queries I had were answered, and the team were fully supportive.
Keith, Isaac and the local guides were brilliant. If you are thinking of taking on a challenge I fully recommend The Bucket List Company.”

“Ok, so if you aren’t Wonder Woman or the female version of Edmund Hillary (although we did have our very own Ironwoman – unfortunately not me!) but you fancy a bit of a challenge/adventure, then this is ideal! 

This trip will challenge you mentally and physically, but because you make new amazing friends and have such a laugh – along with seeing the vibrancy of Morocco – you soon forget about how much you are struggling. The elation of achievement when you reach the top is phenomenal, and worth every foot step! 

Other companies may offer the same trip, but I doubt they give the same level of expertise from the moment you pay your deposit! Everything has been thought of, from the advice about equipment to buy/rent, to the tips for working with our amazing guides and porters.

And then there’s our Bucket list Company rep, Gareth! Gareth, aka Billy Boy Wonder, was the best expedition leader you can ask for. He was always positive, encouraging, smiling and calm, even when there was a drama or something didn’t go according to plan. Oh, and ask him about his belly dancing skills!

I would highly recommend this company, and will be booking another trip! If you have any doubts, don’t! Just book it! You won’t regret it, and will finish the week with a permanent smile, some lovely new friends and priceless memories! Thank you to everyone on our trip. And at last I can say: “Got the t-shirt and wearing it!”

“We recently returned from a fantastic Scuba Diving trip in Gozo, This was our first time using The Bucket List company and we were really impressed with everything from booking the trip to the return flights home, it was all so easy with no stress. Everything was perfectly organised, the group – 18 of us, got on really well and the trip leader, Keith, was a great host. We’re already planning our next trip with The Bucket List Company.”

“This bucket list ticks all boxes!

What can I say? I just back from the Mount Toubkal trip and it has been the experience of a lifetime.

Since I booked this trip, The Bucket List Company have kept in contact with me, asking if needed any help with anything and keeping me updated as well.

On the trip they really do look after you and you get great value for money. They make sure they hire the best local guides to help look after you and those that have the best local knowledge. What I liked about the company is that they help you on the trek and make sure that, if you are struggling a wee bit, they have guides there to encourage you on or go at your pace without rushing you. 

If you are looking to tick stuff of your bucket list, they are the ones to make that dream happen. I have already booked Nepal for 2020 and will be looking for a trip in 2021.
