Nepal

Think Nepal and just picture some of the world’s best trekking set against dramatically picturesque snow-capped Himalayan mountains. We love to reveal Nepal’s other hidden and remarkable secrets, from its timeless culture and off-the-beaten track charms. Historically, Nepal was on the old exotic trading route between Tibet and India. Nepal became a melting pot of cultures and people resulting in a wonderful fusion of Hinduism and Buddhism. A luxury Nepal holiday with Millis Potter brings it all to life.

Kathmandu’s temples and pagoda style medieval buildings are mesmerising. Simply walking through its ancient alleyways and markets provides you with a timeless link to Nepal’s colourful past. The wonderful Nepali people have eked out their lives on its steep hillsides. They created the dramatic rice paddies that Nepal is so well known for. Just meeting the locals is a pleasure, who you will find will be the most genuine and hospitable people.

A trek through rural villages and foothills can be as easy and short as you would want. Opt for hikes in the Annapurna or Everest Base Camp, or further afield. Needless to say, as all our luxury nepal holidays  are tailor-made, you can experience Nepal without even trekking. You can take a helicopter ride into remote areas before returning to a luxury lodge at night. Moving south, you raft down mighty rivers that lead into the Ganges Plain.

You reach the flat plains of the Terai, where you find the jungles of Chitwan and Bardia. These are teeming with exotic birdlife, one-horned rhino, amazing birdlife and even tiger. At Millis Potter, we will allow you to immerse yourself into the many experiences which bring the destination to life. We will tailor an itinerary to Nepal totally around your interests. It might be a honeymoon, a family adventure to Nepal, a walking holiday or a cultural tour. A luxury Nepal holiday is all about using the finest guides, boutique hotels and experiences.

Nepal Experiences

This is a selection of experiences that allow you to see the destination in new and interesting ways. Almost all our experiences include a private guide, and can be then tailored to your particular interests. Indeed, many of the experiences we offer are created individually for our guests, so this list is by no means conclusive. In fact, we leave a couple of our best ideas up our sleeves for when you enquire with us.

Chitwan & the Terai

The southern lowlands of Nepal are called the Terai, and are well known for the superb wildlife on offer. Chitwan and Bardia National Parks are both well known for the one-horned rhino, deer, Bengal tiger, leopard, muggar crocodile, sloth bear and over 500 species of birdlife.

Central Nepal

The areas between Kathmandu and Pokhara make up the central regions of Nepal, linked by the main Tribhuven Highway that links the two cities. As you head off the main road, you find some interesting towns and villages.

Kathmandu Valley

Kathmandu is one of the most fascinating cities in the subcontinent. It was cut off from the outside world until the 1950s, and so it retains its own distinct character, architecture and history. Kathmandu is awash with pagoda style buildings, temples and shrines, and its narrow streets and bustling markets are ideal just to wander around seeing the traditional Nepalese way of life.

Pokhara & Annapurna Region

Pokhara is the gateway to the Annapurna Region, idyllically located next to the dramatic Phewa Lake with the snow-capped Annapurna Range as a backdrop. It is the main base for a trek into the mountains of Nepal.

Nepal Info

Flying Time: 13-14 hours from the UK via Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Doha or Delhi.

Recommended Airlines: Oman Air, Qatar Airways, Etihad and Jet Airways.

Time Zone: UTC +5:45

 

View over Pokhara, and Annapurna Range, Nepal

January

Visiting Nepal in January

January is a great month for views, although it gets a little chilly at higher altitudes, which means that Everest Treks are not really possible, especially to Base Camp. Annapurna Treks are certainly possibly in the foothills, with temperatures lovely by day for walking, and dropping down to about 5 Degrees at night. Most lodges have lovely fires to keep you warm.

February

Visiting Nepal in February

A perfect month for a luxury Nepal holiday. It starts to warm up, and the views are still magical throughout Nepal. It's the peak month to trek in the Annapurna Range, so ensure you book well ahead to get the lodges you want.

Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Kathmandu, Nepal

March

Visiting Nepal in March

It starts to get a little warmer in the day, and March is wonderful time to visit Nepal. The rhododendrons come into bloom making the trekking exceptionally picturesque. The days are longer meaning you can walk a little further. Its a superb time to visit the wildlife parks of Chitwan and Bardia.

April

Visiting Nepal in April

April is considered the last month to trek, with day time temperatures rising quite a bit meaning you need to stop for water quite often. The views are still good, although generally better in the mornings before the clouds cover the snow-capped mountains. In the late afternoon, you might expect a short shower which helps to clear the views for the following morning. Kathmandu welcomes the many mountaineers hoping to climb Everest the following month. It is another great month for wildlife viewings in the Terai.

Everest, Nepal

May

Visiting Nepal in May

May is traditionally the Everest summit month, and you can certainly do the Everest Base Camp Trek to see it in full swing. Given the higher altitudes, the temperatures aren't too cold for you, although the views at lower elevations on the trek can be shrouded in cloud.

Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu, Nepal

June

Visiting Nepal in June

It starts to get really very hot in the early part of June, making trekking almost too hot in the Annapurna Region, although you could visit the Kathmandu Valley for a cultural tour. The monsoon breaks at the end of June when the temperatures drop, but the humidity rises.

July

Visiting Nepal in July

July and August are some of the wettest months to travel to Nepal. You can of course visit Kathmandu, but expect rain, and views shrouded in cloud!

August

Visiting Nepal in August

The monsoon is in full swing, so we don't really advise travel in August for a Nepal holiday.

September

Visiting Nepal in September

The monsoon starts to ease in September, but can last until the end of the month meaning that the snow-capped mountains can still be covered in cloud. If you do want to travel in September and trek, we advise to leave it towards the end of the month if you can.

Pokhara, Nepal

October

Visiting Nepal in October

October is one of the best months for a Nepal holiday. The monsoon has left the country green and lush, the clouds have dissipated, revealing the snow-capped mountains to reveal themselves and the temperatures are lovely for trekking and touring. An excellent month to trek in the Everest Region before the winter temperatures arrive. The wildlife parks are OK to visit, but the undergrowth has returned making sightings more difficult.

November

Visiting Nepal in November

November is pretty much the best month to travel to Nepal. The views and temperatures are at their very best, but do note that there can be lots of visitors during November, so book well in advance to get the hotels and trekking lodges you want.

December

Visiting Nepal in December

The temperatures start to drop in December, meaning you get chilly nights, but day-time temperatures for trekking at lower altitudes (under 3000 metres) is absolutely fine. The views are perfect, and in many ways is a 'secret season' for a Nepal holiday, especially if you want to do an Annapurna Trek.
