Massive mountains, golden temples, fluttering prayer flags, Buddhist stupas, wild yaks and awesome people, Nepal REALLY has it all (and then some).
With King Kong-sized peaks (quite a bit bigger, if we’re being technical), crystalline lakes, cute tea-houses and mountain-bound monasteries, a trip to Nepal will take you to infinity and beyond.
Travel to Nepal on a Geckos tour with a small crew of 18-29 year olds and you’ll get to drink a zillion cups of spicy chai in Kathmandu, visit the world’s most famous climbers convention (otherwise known as Everest Base Camp), be blown away by the beauty of the Annapurna Ranges, capture insanely good panoramic shots of the Himalayas and get as close as you’ll ever get to a Bengal tiger (if you’re lucky) in Chitwan National Park.
Travelling to Nepal is an arresting experience full of life-changing moments; you’ll see fat yaks, breathe thin air, gape at too-good-to-be-true vistas, and discover muscles you never knew you had - trekking will do that to you! Unless you are a muscleologist of course, and then you'll already know what we're talking about.
Some of our tours & treks in Nepal visit high altitudes.

Nepal travel highlights
Trek a rugged trail through the Annapurna Mountains
Experiences (and views) don’t get more epic than this. Meet locals in villages, stay in hilltop lodges and take the best photos of your short life
Feel the vibes at Kathmandu’s Bodhnath Stupa
Strung with colourful prayer flags, this impressive Tibetan Buddhist temple is the holiest of its kind outside Tibet
Ride the white water rapids of the Trisuli River
These rapids have names such as ‘Ladies Delight’ and ‘Snell’s Nose’, so…that’s awesome

Nepal at a Glance, May 2017
WOW! My first trip with Geckos/outside the US and what an amazing time I had. You learn so much about the local culture. From boat rides down the Ganges to zipping through the streets in Tuk-Tuks and gazing in amazement at the Taj Mahal, this is an experience you will never forget! Trekking is hard but sometimes the reward is a homestay where the local family sings Happy Birthday to you and wish you well! NAMASTE
