Following the devastating earthquakes in Nepal on the weekend of 25th April, the FCO is advising against all but essential travel to the country.
Abercrombie & Kent sends its heartfelt condolences to the people of Nepal at this traumatic time.
You don't have to exaggerate, embroider or wax over-lyrical when it comes to Nepal. The facts speak for themselves. With more than 1500 peaks over 5,000m, and several over 7,000, serating the widescreen spine of the Himalayas, the remote kingdom has more high mountains than anywhere else on earth. It is, quite simply, trekking heaven.
And Nepal doesn't just offer epic 360-degree views; it has traditional unspoilt villages, dense forests and orchards, along with wild rivers, temples and stupas festooned with prayer flags.
But to get the most from this fascinating destination, to savour some of the best walking on earth, you want to sty in comfortable, brilliantly located lodges, in the hands of highly trained, passionate guides with properly remunerated porters. You want an operator who understands Nepal's unique rewards and its challenges.
A&K's large team of highly qualified staff have provided premium travel across the region for over 25 years. With longstanding partners in Nepal, the best 4WD vehicles and senior guides including cultural and conservation experts, we offer seamless travel connections and remarkable experiences off the mainstream tour radar.
Enjoy an Abercrombie & Kent luxury Nepal holiday in 2015, 2016 and you'll find glorious hikes, and fascinating religious and cultural sites. Kathmandu has temples galore from Teleju and Swayambhunath, to Pashupatinath, and nearby UNESCO listed Bouddhanath Stupa, a city landmark.
To the Northwest, tranquil Pokhara, in the foothills of sacred Mt. Macchapuchre with three of the world's ten highest peaks within 30 miles, is the majestic gateway to the Annapurna range; while the world heritage site of Chitwan National Park, in subtropical south-central lowlands, has forested hills, magnificent birdlife and very rare Bengal tigers.
On our Nepalese trekking holidays, we offer a huge variety of walks from short but still super scenic strolls and mini-hikes to the Annapurna and Everest spectacular - a chance to taste both dramatic regions, with an interconnecting flight that reveals the earth's highest mountain and surrounding summits at close quarters.
And we don't just guarantee snow-licked peaks; we guarantee festivals. Colourful joyous festivals. The country's reputed to have more celebrations than there are days in the year. As we said: why exaggerate? Nepal offers so much - and with A&K it's all possible.
