Nepal’s Mount Everest looms large in popular culture as the tallest mountain in the world, challenging generations of mountaineers and adventurers. After our time in the sun-drenched tropics of India, we move on to Nepal’s higher altitude to view this unique region from a totally different perspective.

Our 16 Day Deluxe India with Nepal takes us to Kathmandu, in the shadow of the Himalayas, a melting pot of Indian and Tibetan cultures fondly called “The Roof of the World.” We’ll stay at Dwarika’s Hotel, modeled after the palaces of Newar Kings and home to a fascinating collection of 13th century artifacts.

Beneath the tallest mountain range in the world, we gather for a private lecture and conversation with an experienced Mt. Everest sherpa. Listen to stories of climbers’ determination and courage as they attempt to reach the peak of the world’s tallest mountain.

In clear weather, we rise before dawn for our flightseeing tour with views of Mt. Everest, soaring 29,000 feet above sea level. Embrace the exhilaration of viewing the dramatic Himalayas and glorious Mount Everest as the morning sun casts golden shadows on the mountain peaks. Our exploration of rural Nepal takes us to the town of Nagarkot, where we can admire spectacular panoramas of the Himalayas and the Kathmandu Valley. We end our Himalayan adventure with a sumptuous celebration dinner of Nepalese specialties in Kathmandu.
