    Got your trekking pants on? Good. Fly from Kathmandu to Phakding then start walkin’. Check out Namche Bazaar, have a lil’ look at old Everest, bliss out in the coolest...
  • About the Himalaya

    • If Tenzing Norgay is your big-time idol and you’ve got an inherent passion for prayer flags, then pack your hiking boots because Nepal is awaitin’.
    • Whether you wanna trek to Everest Base Camp, explore Buddhist Tibet or chill out by Pokhara’s serene lake, the Himalayas are a pocket of patchouli just waiting to be explored.
    • So jump on a Geckos Himalaya trip and hit the Annapurna trails, drink chai in Kathmandu, hang out in Lhasa, go whitewater rafting in Chitwan and let the mountains do all the talking. Breathe deep, friends.
    • Touchy:
      It’s considered offensive to touch anything with your feet in Nepal (shoes and floors are obvious exceptions).
    • Individuality:
      Nepal’s flag is the only one in the world that’s not rectangular or quadrilateral (that means a four-sided shape).

    Ain't no Mountain High Enough

    The "Ain't no mountain high enough " tour was an amazing experience. Starting in Nepal settled us in to a different culture and we emersed ourselves into what the beautiful country had to offer including Buddhas birthplace and momo's! We then headed into the land of Papadums and butter chicken and fell in love with the bright and always suprising India . Our great tour guides always went that extra step to make our trip a memorable experience that I will take away with fond memories.

    The Road to Kathmandu

    The trip was all that I expected and more. The professionalism of the two guides - Pradeep and Binod - was amazing. They were so organised, informed and helpful, and went over and above their duties to ensure that we were looked after at all times - this even extended to getting medications when anyone fell ill. There were 2 members of our tour who elected from the onset to be 'Independent" of the group, making things very difficult for both tour leaders, as well as the rest of the group. The way that Pradeep and Binod handled this was a real credit to them both. They ensured that the rest of the group were in no way compromised by the actions of these 2 ladies. I would really like to thank both of them for making this trip so fantastic. A lifetime experience that I will dwell on for many a year. I would not hesitate to use Gecko Tours again if all their guides are as good as the two we had!
