Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Top Nepal Experiences and Attractions

Top Nepal Experiences

  • Strolling past the more than 50 temples and palaces that sprawl across Durbar Square in Kathmandu, and the smaller collections of religious architectural treasures in nearby Patan and Bhaktapur.
  • Trekking for days around the Annapurna massif for breath-taking views of that awesome range.
  • Clambering aboard an elephant for a rock-and-rolling ride through Royal Chitwan National Park to spot rhinos, wild boar, crocodiles, monkeys and other resident wildlife.
  • Photographing scenery – towering mountains, deep green-clad valleys, glacial rivers, plummeting waterfalls – that rivals any on earth.
  • Discovering tiny villages laid out along narrow cobblestone streets that could have been plucked from medieval Europe and transported to their present idyllic setting.
  • Interacting with some of the most friendly people anywhere -- whose perpetual greeting, Namaste (na-ma-stay), which means “welcome,” says it all.
  • Observing the extent to which religion is as much a part of life as eating and breathing to most Nepalese, who express their devotion throughout the day and into night at both immense places of worship and tiny family shrines.

While I was in Nepal last year. Nepal is also one of the best destinations in the world. More different than in other countries. Diversity in culture, religion, landscapes, land of mountains and beyond mountains. Thank you Travel Max Guide for organizing my round trip to Nepal.

Stride Travel site helped me find the exact trip of my dreams. I put in the places I wanted to visit and many tours came up. I could easily research each tour - the difficulty, pace and most importantly price. The site was easy to use and great benefit as it shows proven and reliable operators and I felt confident in their choice as all the reviews and information was right there.
I would definitely use Stride as my search engine as they simplified the process and gave access to all the necessary information I needed.

From there I compared and chose Inside Hidden Kingdoms offered by EXPLORE. The tour company was great…I actually talked to a person in North America re the trip. Questions were answered promptly by phone or email. Prices were as stated.
The tour itself was amazing. Our guide Udaya was affable and responsive to requests and needs of the group. …he was one of us - a guiding light with a great sense of humour. On the tough climbs he stayed with the slowest and encouraged us all. The tour was everything I could hope for from 2 relaxing days touring the Sunderbans by boat something I wanted to experience close up. Our travels to North Bengal including train and bus were amazing and informative. The local guides chosen by EXPLORE were flexible and receptive to questions, queries and planning. Every guide from the Sunderbans to Darjeeling to Bhutan was excellent, local and well chosen
We had some tough drives through construction in Sikkim and our drivers couldn’t have been better…we always felt safe on all our mountain drives with our competent drivers chosen.
The variety and pace was also fun - We camped, stayed in cabins and hotels - some were especially beautiful. The information noted it would be full on and it was but not so much to exhaust. We were up at dawn to see the sun rise over the mountain…relaxed in a boat in the Sunderbans, experienced Kolkata and Katmandu, were in traffic jams in hectic Gangtok and experienced tea estates and rice fields, highlands and valleys, jungles on our many travel days. We enjoyed Darjeeling and the toy train, Sikkim’s many faces but I think we really enjoyed the Hidden Kingdom of Bhutan…a small interesting newly opening country. Our guides here were full of stories, history, and characters. We walked through rice fields freshly harvested, climbed Tigers Nest with very patient guides and camped by the Mochu River.
The food throughout the trip was tasty and filling. The breakfasts provided were very substantial for our busy days.
There were no surprises as from the beginning we knew we had many long travel days up and down the valleys and mountains which I loved to see. Throughout we had the steady guidance of Uddaya as plans progressed or changed according to the weather, season, traffic or festival in progress.
Food, lodging, pace were exactly as stated but what is impossible to write is the experience itself full of wonderful people, fun things to try or taste, challenges met and experiences galore.
Stride brought me to Explore and Explore fulfilled its promise…..
Thank you for a trip of a life through West Bengal and these Hidden Kingdoms

Nepal Tours and Travel Guide

Nepal Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Just the mention of “Nepal” tends to conjure up images of mountain climbers laboriously, and dangerously, ascending towering snow-capped peaks -- and for good reason. After all, this Tennessee-sized country, tucked between India and Tibet, is home to eight of the 10 tallest mountains in the world, including fabled Mount Everest and the magnificent Annapurna Range.  

But there’s much more to see and do in Nepal than climb mountains; it’s a country that can appeal to a diverse group of travelers. For starters, those who prefer more level challenges than scaling mountains, trekking in Nepal is as good as it gets anywhere (though trekking may well involve elevation gain, too).

Wildlife, Wild Rivers, Friendly People and More

Wildlife viewing can equal that in Africa. Rafting on remote class four and five rivers brings some of the most adrenaline-pumping whitewater on earth. And then there are the Nepalese people, a mélange of more than 100 ethnic groups with their own modes of dress, cultures, and dialects -- and who are among the friendliest in the world. Meeting at least some of them is a highlight of any Nepal trip.

Throw into the mix Nepal’s awe-inspiring collection of ancient temples, pagodas and monuments and you have something-for-everyone variety.

The Long and Short of Trekking

You don’t have to be in mountain-climbing shape to trek in Nepal.  The choices range from short jaunts not much more difficult than walks you might take at home to weeks-long hikes over challenging terrain.  One difference is that your walk through Nepal might lead through a rhododendron forest, past rice fields and overlook stunning landscapes in the shadow of soaring mountains.  

Those so inclined may opt for a pony trek, which will be easier on your feet but perhaps not on a different body part.

Everest Base Camp

Mount Everest’s 29,029 foot height makes it not just the tallest but also the most famous peak in the world. Trekking to Everest Base Camp at 17,598 feet is by itself an icon of world travel.  

Still, Everest has plenty of nearby competition. The magnificent Annapurna Range includes the 26,545-foot mountain for which it’s named and 13 other peaks that rise over 22,970 feet.  The  dramatic gorge that has been gouged out between Mount Annapurna and it 26,795-foot neighbor, Mount Dhaulagiri, is said to be the deepest canyon on Earth.

Temples and Pagodas

About 90 percent of the Nepalese people are Hindu and most of the rest are Buddhist, but over a span of 2,000 years the dividing line between those faiths has virtually disappeared.  Many Nepalese worship the gods of both religions and hold sacred the shrines of the other – and what shrines they are!   

What’s said to be the largest collection of temples, pagodas and religious monuments in the world dazzles visitors with their elaborate carvings and colorful adornments. While the greatest concentration of religious structures is in the squares of Kathmandu and its ancient sister cities of Patan and Bhaktapur, there are smaller shrines in virtually every town and village, and many more peppered about the countryside.

Wonderful Wildlife

While Nepal may not rank among the best known safari destinations in the world, it has an almost full alphabet variety of animal life, from alligators to yellow bittern birds, and much in-between. Elephants, rare one-horned rhinoceroses, royal Bengal tigers, and elusive snow leopards are just a few of the animals that roam the forests.

More than 850 recorded species of birds share treetops with chattering monkeys. Many animals are concentrated in national parks that have been established for their protection. The opportunity to meet and mingle with residents of this natural zoo is reason in itself to sign up for a tour to Nepal.

Exotic Kathmandu

Kathmandu offers a taste of much that Nepal has to offer in a fascinating if somewhat frenetic setting that can fill several busy days of sightseeing.  The religious architecture in Durbar square, old neighborhoods of narrow cobblestone streets, and people praying and paying tribute to their god or gods virtually around the clock are echoed throughout the country.

Sound good? Let Stride help you get to Kathmandu and beyond -- all the way to Everest if you like, though the choice is yours.
