Experience the sights of Kathmandu with a qualified English speaking guide. See some ancient temples nestled within the city, places that have remained the same for centuries. But don't just see them; get a valuable insight from a knowledgeable local guide. You will be amazed. Kathmandu has more surprises than you can imagine.

Kathmandu has a wealth of accommodation options.  On our standard expedition departure we stay at a good, western standard, mid-range hotel but if you feel you would like to upgrade to luxury style, we can assist with booking alternative hotels.

Visit Chitwan or Pokhara

  • Chitwan National Park


Chitwan National Park is one of the major draw cards in Nepal outside of the Himalayas themselves. This is a World Heritage listed wildlife reserve that protects over 932 square kilometres of wilderness that is home to a raft of different wildlife.  While there you will have the opportunity to see one horned rhinoceroses, monkeys and deer, and if you are really lucky you might even see a Royal Bengal Tiger.  Since you are in Nepal, why not stay a little longer and experience this gem. For more information check out our Chitwan page.

Perched 1,000 feet above the Pokhara Valley with a spectacular Himalayan backdrop, Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge provides a perfect haven, the essence of tranquillity. This side trip is ideal for guests pre and post-expedition, or for those wishing to take day walks exploring local communities, bird-watching, gentle exercise, or just to relax in a typical Nepalese rural setting.

Privately Guided Treks

We are also able to offer Privately Guided Treks to ensure your needs are best met. AC have been fortunate to work with many privately guided groups over the years with exceptional results.

Film your Trek

Have a camera man join your expedition and document the entire thing! Choose from a variety of options for different budgets. You could have a full colour book and short film, or a full documentary for television. Your trip is the trip of a lifetime; why not keep it to show your friends and family

Island Peak

Add a private guided climb of Island Peak to your trip.  A superb entry into Himalayan climbing, Island Peak is mostly non-technical with some basic snow climbing skills required to achieve the ascent.

Gokyo Extension

 Trek over the challenging Cho La Pass to visit the Gokyo Lakes region. This is a highly recommended extension for fit and experienced trekkers.

An early start sees the group going over the 5,380m pass by late mid-morning (fantastic views back to Ama Dablam and of Cholatse) and then descending off the steeper side of the pass into boulder fields and trails with a more remote feeling to them. By the end of a superb day’s Himalayan trekking we reach the small village of Dragnag. The next day we cross the Ngozumpa Glacier and after a couple of hours reach Gokyo for a well-earned rest. There are options to climb Gokyo Ri (5,357m) later on or trek further up valley to view some of the stunning Gokyo lakes (of which there are five).

We then begin the trek out from the Gokyo region with a beautiful day of trekking to Machermo, before re-joining the main trail at Namche Bazaar. The trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla is a long day before the early morning flight back out to Kathmandu on the last day. Departure flights from Kathmandu need to be scheduled for the following day. Costs for the Gokyo Extension are US$450 per person. For more information contact our office or click on the Trip Notes above.
