One word: Himalaya. Nepal is a pilgrimage every walking devotee must make

Adventure Holidays in Nepal

When it comes to Nepal, one word says it all: The Himalaya. For this magical kingdom sits high on the spine of the world’s most famous mountain range. Nerve-tingling scenery, a complex culture and some of the best walking trails in the world make Nepal a mecca for the adventure traveller. Here you can trek to the top of the world, raft down raging rapids, cycle awesome mountain passes or simply contemplate the meaning of life as you listen to monks chanting.

Life in Nepal adds new meaning to living on the edge, a delicate balance of high altitude, hard work and social festivities, all steeped heavily in ancient tradition. And although poor, Nepal's culture is rich. It’s not hard to see why this is a haven for Buddhism, and you’ll come across monasteries, village temples, and prayer flags atop passes and houses wherever you go. The people leave an indelible impression too.

Expert view: Essential Nepal holidays

Valerie Parkinson, Exodus Asia Base Camp Manager & Guide, has been leading treks in the Himalaya for more than 30 years, and has spent over 50% of her life surrounded by the most magnificent mountains on Earth.

1. Trekking Everest and the surrounding mountains: “Straddling a ridge with breathtaking views of Everest, Thyangboche Monastery is the holiest place in the Sherpa highlands. En route to Everest, Hillary and Tenzing paused for a blessing. We stay in the teahouse next door, so close you can hear monks chanting.” 

2. The Annapurna Region – in luxury: “Not all Himalayan trekking holidays require roughing it. Our low-altitude route through villages and farmland to the Annapurna foothills includes five nights in luxury Ker & Downey lodges, all of which have en suite bathrooms and proper duvets. In Himalaya Lodge, the snow-capped Annapurna peaks feel close enough to touch …”

Responsible travel

Exodus has set up and supported many projects in Nepal over the decades, from installing solar cookers and donating smokeless stoves, to supporting a tree nursery in Braga (Annapurna’s) and helping supply water and hydro-electric power to several villages.

Following the 2015 Nepal earthquake, Exodus’ emergency fundraising appeal raised over a quarter of a million pounds. This enabled us to provide immediate and longer-term emergency support in the necessary areas. Exodus worked with volunteers from Nepal Medical College to run a medical camp in the remote village of Thulopatel in 2016, and sponsored Health Partnership Nepal to run a medical camp in Charikot in 2017. We are also proud to support Freedom Kit Bags (providing sanitary wear) for women in Nepal..
