Hari can guide you through the ancient buildings and bustling marketplaces, and really give you a sense of the past whilst appreciating the present. You might want the opportunity to shop for food in the exotic markets full of fresh and exciting produce? To cook your own Dal Bhat or MoMo?  Whatever you want to do in Kathmandu we can help you achieve your dream. Contact us and we can design your city break especially for you.


Village Guide - Prabha

The village stays in Surya Ma village, Nuwakot district will be enhanced by the treks and tours offered by Prabha.  Jungle excursions in the locality and unique access to local people and culture are some of the fantastic benefits of booking a village stay with us.   Booking village stays brings much needed resources and employment to an area not much touched by tourism.  Experience a basic and fulfilling life in breathtaking scenery far removed from the bustle of Kathmandu.  Resources spent here really make a direct, positive improvement to the lives of women and children in the village.

Himalaya


The Himalaya

The Himalaya is Sanskrit for ‘abode of snow’ stretching across the northeastern portion of India. They cover approximately 1,500 miles and pass through the nations of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, Bhutan and Nepal. The Himalayan range is made up of three parallel ranges often referred to as the Greater Himalayas, the Lesser Himalayas, and the Outer Himalayas.

While intimidating mountains like Everest and K2 tend to dominate our perceptions of the region, the Himalayas are rich in biodiversity. Climates range from tropical at the base of the mountains to perennial snow and ice at the highest elevations. These complex and diverse eco-regions are interconnected: an ecological threat to one is ultimately a threat to many.
