Whether you seek private travel experiences, small group tours or a bespoke itinerary, our impressive guides give you the opportunity to see the world through a new lens as they reveal the magic of Nepal.

Your luxury experience begins from the moment you arrive in Kathmandu. Catch a glimpse of local life as you weave through the cacophony of traders’ yells, rickshaw bells and intoxicating smells. Once in the serenity of your luxury accommodation, Nepal’s enchantment will have already taken hold.


What makes Nepal an extraordinary luxury destination?

From the moment you arrive in Nepal, the tiny landlocked nation will capture your imagination. Witness towering mountain peaks, remote hilltop monasteries, crystal clear rivers and friendly, smiling people.

Ain’t no mountain higher

Of the world’s ten highest peaks, eight are in Nepal. Serious mountain climbers and leisurely ramblers alike can explore walking trails among giants. A&K can organise a Himalayan scenic flight by plane or helicopter to get you up close and personal with Mount Everest, standing tall at 8,848 metres above sea level.

Reconnect to nature

Rejuvenate your mind, body and soul as you breathe in crisp alpine air and marvel at jaw-dropping panoramas. Witness snowy mountain peaks, deep gorges and intriguing mountain caves. Hear thunderous waterfalls drop into rushing rivers. Discover remote alpine lakes and glistening glaciers. Explore protected national parks and try to catch a glimpse of the elusive Bengal tiger, Indian rhino and 500 species of birds.

Exciting cities and vibrant culture

Nepal is a deeply spiritual place and no matter your faith, it’s impossible not to be moved by the country’s rich heritage. Hindu and Buddhist traditions go back more than two millennia; while today’s diverse multiculturalism derives from centuries of migration, trade and conquest. Welcome to a fascinating mosaic of medieval plazas, lands laced with sacred sites and  the gentle sound of prayer flags fluttering in the mountain breeze.

How can you experience the best of Nepal?

Abercrombie & Kent Nepal journeys include private trips, luxury small group tours and bespoke adventures from short stopovers to lengthy explorations. Nepal is also included as a highlight on the exceptional 23 day Cultural Treasures Private Jet Journey.

To ensure your luxury holiday in Nepal exceeds your expectations, we spend time upfront to learn about you. This allows A&K travel specialists to design itineraries that perfectly blend your interests with alluring experiences and lavish relaxation.

Award winning accommodation in Nepal

Abercrombie & Kent only partners with best-in-class accommodation providers. Luxury hotels, lodges and guesthouses are handpicked to enrich your journey.

For instance, when visiting Kathmandu, you may experience sophisticated service at the five-star Dwarika’s Hotel. Winner of the Pacific Asia Travel Association’s Heritage Award, the hotel immerses you in culture with 13th century artifacts and thoughtful design elements.

A serene escape from the bustle of city life makes for a relaxing retreat as you settle into Nepalese life. Dine in one of four world-class restaurants within the hotel or explore options beyond the courtyard walls. However, in surrounds as luxurious as these, it can be hard to leave.

When to Go

Abercrombie & Kent recommends visiting Nepal between March - April and October - November when pleasant conditions make it ideal for trekking, wildlife viewing and cultural experiences. When you visit depends on what you want to experience.

If you seek jaw-dropping mountain vistas, then October to December typically offers the clearest skies. However, the colours and aromas of springtime’s Holi Festival and rhododendron season in March have been known to lure many a traveller.

A&K can design a special journey to coincide with unique cultural events. New Year celebrations in April are a sight to behold as locals picnic in parks and a festive ambience fills the air. Similarly in October or November, Tihar essentially the equivalent of the Indian festival Diwali, lights up communities during a five-day Hindu celebration.

December- February are the winter month when temperatures are low but the views are clear and it is quiet on the trails. From May, humidity and heat intensifies until the monsoon season arrives (June-September), obscuring the jagged peaks with heavy skies but offering a great time to explore the lively cities.
