With its majestic treks, bustling markets, friendly people and forests which are home to tiger and rhinoceros, Nepal has so much to offer. The remote Kingdom of Nepal contains more of the world's highest mountains than any other country and it is dominated by the soaring snow-covered peaks of the Himalaya. The Annapurna Range, where winding paths link rural villages and yak pastures, is a mecca for walkers, and for the serious hiker, Mustang remains the ultimate trekking goal in Nepal. While the Everest summit is the ultimate physical challenge, you don't have to be a world-class mountaineer to appreciate its majesty.

However, Nepal is much more than just a trekking destination. The breath taking beauty and clear air of the region are powerful magnets if you are looking for peace, solitude and a gentler pace. Kathmandu's bustling streets, markets and people form an intoxicating riot of noise and colour while the great forests and grasslands of Chitwan are home to endangered species including the Bengal tiger, one-horned rhinoceros, leopard and sloth bear. The kind and friendly people of Nepal give the country its unique karma;Hinduism and Buddhism co-exist in complete harmony and the spiritual nature of the Nepalese is apparent at every turn, its landscape liberally scattered with multi-coloured prayer flags.

Nepal with A&K
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. Nepal offers so much - and with A&K it's all possible.
