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.
Upgrade to Luxury Hotels
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.
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.
Pokhara and Tiger Mountain Lodge
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. For more information check out our Pokhara page.
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.
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
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.
The Gokyo Valley is renowned for its spectacular lakes and scenery, which arguably offer some of the best views in the Himalaya! Our Gokyo Heli Extension is a worthwhile short and spectacular addition to your Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek. It includes a short scenic flight from Pheriche which takes us to the lakeside village of Gokyo. From here we climb the nearby Gokyo Ri (5,357m), where we find ourselves surrounded by the Himalayan giants of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cholatse and Ama Dablam. Perhaps one of the world's most spectacular picnic spots, we take the time to enjoy lunch and absorb the stunning landscape around us. After trekking back to Gokyo we continue onwards with our journey, flying back to Kathmandu.
