CUSTOM TRIPS TO NEPAL
PRIVATE TRAVEL FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
Custom isn't complicated: in fact over 70% of our travelers visit Asia on a Custom Journey. And here's the beauty, a custom trip to Nepal departs on dates of your choosing and you travel only in the company of loved ones to destinations entirely up to you. You determine the trip length and focus. The type of Nepal lodging is up to you, as are included meals. All trips are accompanied by expert private local guides and drivers, all for about the price of a group departure (or if you choose, the sky is of course the limit).
To get started, view our Nepal sample itinerary below or customize one of our signature Small Group Trips to suit your travel dates.
Please note: In light of the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal, Custom Journeys to certain regions may not be possible. Please contact your Travel Expert for more information before booking.
