Nepal

Guarded to the north by the highest mountains in the world, Nepal is a pocket-sized, landlocked country of uncompromising beauty. Capital city Kathmandu is a bustling treasure-trove of ancient temples, shrines and palaces. It is also a base from which to visit the medieval towns of Bhaktapur and Patan in the Kathmandu Valley with their incredible palaces, historic temples and vibrant culture that has remained unchanged for centuries. To the west, few places can claim such a perfect setting as the lakeside town of Pokhara where the towering Himalayas offer some of the world's most spectacular trekking. For those interested in the natural world, Bardia and Chitwan national parks are rich in wildlife including the one horned rhinoceros, gharial crocodile and elusive Royal Bengal tiger. Pettitts have led the way in designing tailor-made holidays and tours to Nepal for over 25 years.

Customer Testimonial

Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip around India which hugely exceeded expectations, thanks in no small measure to the meticulous planning and organisation by yourself and your team and the excellent and very personal service from your local agents, guides and drivers. Many thanks indeed for making everything so easy and comfortable for us, and, in particular, for organising the late switch of hotels for our last night, which enabled us to finish our holiday on a high.
