Tea-House Trekking, Kathmandu Sightseeing, Gentle Cycling, Jungle Safari or Paragliding

This is the ultimate, “do-it-all” adventure! Teahouse trekking in the Mount Everest region, gentle cycling through the Middle Hills, walking tours through the backstreets of the ancient city-kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, and your choice of paragliding or wildlife jungle safari. Culturally rich and lots of fun, this is an action-packed two weeks in Nepal!

TRAVEL IN STYLE

  • This trip utilizes high-end teahouses during the trek, and boutique, hand-picked accommodation throughout.
  • Carry only a light daypack as porters will carry your main bag.
  • Gentle Cycling means your shuttle van carries you to the top of the mountain; you coast down the backside past local villages and along terraced mountainsides.
  • Delicious food and imported drinks.
  • Personally hosted by Eli
