Trip Overview

Get ready to embark on capturing some of the vivid moments handed down to you by nature as you travel to the best places Nepal offers. The country of the eight highest mountains in the world, Nepal happens to be one of the most popular destinations for adventure and landscape photography.

Whether you’re an admirer of the diverse culture or like to immerse completely in the abundant wildlife, this trip is an exciting getaway for all the adventurers and passionate shutterbugs. The tour provides you an opportunity to know the rich biodiversity of the much-protected and conserved country. This tour allows you to grasp the Nepali terrains as well as its varied topography. It starts right from the capital of the nation, Kathmandu, and explores popular cities of Chitwan and Pokhara to scenic villages like Ghorepani, Poonhill, and Nagarkot.

The Trekking and Wildlife Photography Tours is a treat to the eye of the explorers, as you get to travel around the most loved places of the country. The tour in the capital takes you to the renowned historical UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Swayambunath Stupa, Bhaktapur, Kathmandu, and Patan Durbar square. Additionally, the travelers will also tour around one of the oldest Hindu temples in the capital; The Pashupatinath Temple. One of the major highlights of the tour is your visit to the district of Chitwan, a hub for rare and endangered wildlife and its conservation areas. 

The trip introduces you to some of the most scenic places in Nepal. You’ll visit the famous World Peace Stupa in Pokhara as you behold the beauty of the iconic Phewa lake. The journey itself provides plenty of opportunities for enthusiasts to catch the magical sunrise and sunsets at different locations. We assure you, you will be truly mesmerized by the beautiful Pokhara city. A challenging yet equally enticing day awaits as you take a short trek to one of the most loved journeys; the Tadapani-Ghorepani-Poonhill route. The weariness of the trek feels a lot better when you are greeted every day by the majestic giants! On a bright, clear day, you can witness a wide stretch of the Himalayas, including Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, and Nilgiri, to name a few.

We see this tour as an experience that allows both the emerging and experienced photographers to enjoy nature, wildlife, and surroundings as they hone their photography skills. It offers the perfect balance of photography, culture, nature, and wildlife. Whether you’re a street photographer, a landscape enthusiast, or into nature photography, we bet you will enjoy this journey of knowing the magical side of Nepal!

All you have to do is be present at the moment as you get closer to experiencing the wilderness.

Jayadatta Narasipura, USA Dear Ganga and the entire team, We, Narasipura family would like to thank you and your team for making once in a lifetime experience possible. All three of us loved every minute we spent in the Himalayas and Nepal. After my EBC trek, I wanted to experience Himalayas again with my family. Your team made it possible. Every day, we knew what to expect because Paban explained us on previous evening and in the morning. In seven days, we trekked in the lush green forest, saw numerous waterfalls, were inside the clouds, refreshed ourselves in the river and stream water, took multiple breaks with tea, coffee. Even though it was very hard, especially from 3rd to 5th day, we managed to get over the fatigue to continue because of Paban, Gokul and Ganesh’s help and encouragement. They used to tell us to take it easy (Aaramse jayenke) then we can do it, no need to rush. Paban modified the plan/itinerary based on the time of the day and our physical condition. We always ended the day before 5pm. Paban was flexible and booked the best teahouses, he made our trek very enjoyable. On fourth day, we were scheduled to trek to Upper Sinuwa. He changed it, we stayed at Lower Sinuwa. Because of 4th day’s change of plan, he modified fifth day trek too. Every day, as soon as we woke up, we started off with a hot cup of coffee or tea, they served to us without fail. Enjoying first few minutes of the day looking the sunrise in the mountains with a hot drink was so peaceful and relaxing. At the end of every day, we had fun, talking, playing cards, and having delicious dinner with fresh fruits as dessert. It was a beautiful experience. Paban, Gokul and Ganesh treated us royally and with respect, we are grateful to them. Spending last two days of our trek in the Machapuchare and Annapurna basecamps were a bliss, surrounded by the Annapurna mountain range was just amazing, and unbelievable. On the last day of the trip, we loved the cultural tour of the three cities, we were mesmerized by the artwork. Hope we can come back and enjoy Nepal again. We appreciate everything you did for us to accomplish our dream trek. Datta Trip done between 9th to 18th May 2022
Richard, UK "After extensive research regarding which trekking company to entrust with helping me with my dream holiday I chose The Nepal Hiking Team. This was for a number of reasons.
  1. Ganga and his team were super flexible, quick to respond, and allowed me to build a bespoke holiday that suited my schedule.
  2. When things went wrong at my end, they were quick to come up with solutions to help me out
  3. They understood this was a once in a lifetime experience for me, and answered my many and varied questions.
Once I arrived in Nepal it was immediately clear I had made the right decision. I was picked up from the airport, and driven to the hotel where I met Ganga and my guide Dinesh. Dinesh checked that the equipment I had brought with me was suitable, and NHT provided me a down jacket. The next day we flew out of Kathmandu, to EBC and Island Peak. Dinesh looked after me for the next 12 days in the mountains. He is an expert on the local area. Point at any mountain, and he can tell you how high it is and what its name is. He has travelled extensively over the area for more than 8 years, and he uses this knowledge to enrich your holiday experience. Every hotel you stay in, he knows the owners, and ensures you get a comfortable room. Need your washing done, or a hot shower? He will recommend where (and where not!) to get it done. When you are walking the trails he can tell you how much further you have to go, what bits will be difficult, and which easier. If you are looking to book with Nepal Hiking, and are lucky enough to have Dinesh as a guide then you are going to have a fabulous trip"
Walt Risley, USA When searching for a trekking company I wanted to go with a local group. All the reviews for Nepal Hiking Team were excellent so I choose them. From start to finish they had their act together. Initial correspondence and any email questions were answered by Ganga, the man in charge, by the next day. They kept me up to date with everything I needed as far as entry into Nepal. Picked me up from the airport and got me to my hotel without an issue. I joined a couple from Canada for the trek. Our guide Prakash never left our side from breakfast to dinner. He expedited the flight to and from Lukla which would have been a hectic process without him. Since all of us were in our 50s he established early that we would be in no rush. Whether we got to our next location at 2pm or 4pm didn’t matter. I would rather be outside enjoying the trek than in early playing cards. I felt safe and looked after with him. This trek is tough. It’s much steeper than I anticipated and the altitude change from place to place does not reflect the ascents and descents which on some days doubles the heights you actually do. They ascents into Tengbouche and at Dugla pass are particularly tough but at a slow steady pace they are doable by any who are reasonably fit. Once at the guest house the service didn’t end there. Prakash took care of all our needs. Making sure we had enough to eat and enough water. He wouldn’t leave our side until we turned in for the night which was often quite early. His personality was very soothing. We could not have accomplished what we did without him or our 2 porters. While English was not their strength, they would carry our gear ahead of us to the next location and often double back to see if we needed help and were more than happy to help with our day packs. They also accompanied us on some of the acclimation hikes in case some or one of us wanted to climb higher, splitting us up. After the trek everything was taken care of. I needed a PCR COVID test for a tour in Abu Dahbi the day after I left Kathmandu and Ganga arranged for a nurse to administer it to me in the hotel. Seamless. It’s a long review but I really can’t say enough about these guys, especially for the price. For all the service we got it was amazingly reasonable. Would definitely use this company on any return trip to Nepal and highly recommend!     You can also read this review on trip advisor.
Nicola Ross, Australia The Annapurna circuit trek was one of the best treks I’ve ever experienced. I completed it with my sister (we are both in our early sixties) on a private tour in April 2022. It was very well organized by Nepal Hiking Team, a very professional organization. Nina provided wonderful advice on the trip initially. Our guide, Hari was experienced, attentive, capable, and kind. He made the trip a success for us, along with Nomoratz, our porter, who carried our gear with such good humour. The Himalayas are the most majestic mountain range in the world. The trek was very strenuous and challenging, (more for me than my sister) but was such a wonderful experience. We have learned so much about Hinduism and Buddhism and have developed a great affection and respect for the Nepalese people. They are wonderful hosts with a rich culture we have enjoyed learning about. I highly recommend this company, our guide, and porter if you are considering trekking in Nepal. This country offers real adventure, beauty, and cultural experiences to those who venture here. See this review on TripAdvisor (click here)
Beste Gokkilic Yazar, Turkey We did eight days Mardi Himal trek and it was a very pleasant experience. The whole team arranged everything with great professionalism and they were equally precise when something unexpected or out of the plan happened. They took great care for us both during our accommodation in Kathmandu and the trekking period as well. Our guide Dinesh was also extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend him, he was always there with his stunning hospitality when we needed. He is also a great teacher, taught me some of the basics of Nepalese language too :D. I would definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team if you have any plans to travel to Nepal for trekking purposes.
