Why travel to Nepal

A fusion of both Hinduism and Buddhism, it’s teeming with palaces, temples and mediaeval towns; one of the most beautiful lands in Asia, it’s home to eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. Its rivers and mountains offer some of the world’s best trekking and rafting, its national parks shelter the One-Horned Rhinoceros and the Royal Bengal Tiger and its people exude life, colour and warmth.

Our Destination Experts can arrange one-of-a-kind experiences in Nepal from a helicopter safari over the Himalayas, offering unparalleled vistas of Everest’s majestic peaks to private trekking expeditions with expert guides, exploring hidden trails while savouring gourmet cuisine and comfy camping accommodations.

Dwarika’s, Kathmandu

Dwarika’s is owned and run by three generations of the Shrestha family. Nepal’s only heritage hotel, it has been beautifully restored using local brick and antique wood carvings.

Designed in the style of a Newari village, the luxurious rooms are scattered around a spacious courtyard filled with terracotta pots, running fountains and even the occasional monkey. You will find elements of the country’s diverse cultural heritage throughout, furniture created by generations of traditional carpenters, textiles, linens and embroideries handwoven with Nepali patterns. The perfect mix of comfort and authenticity, we think this family-run hotel represents Nepal at its best. Dwarika's also serves superb Nepali cuisine in the traditional dining room and is a short distance from the centre of town.
