Nepal Tourism Trending and it's not for Trekking
Bookings for the 'Roof of the World' are going through the roof! Demand for two week multi-activity holidays increases by 30%
Mention Nepal to most people and immediately trekking in the majestic Himalayas springs to mind. But, with most Himalayan treks being lengthy and challenging affairs, not everyone wants to spend their holidays walking every single day.
As most people are restricted to two weeks holiday at a time, even the likes of the Everest Base Camp trek are just too long. An impossible dream for most.
Mark Knowles, the UK based Sales Manager for Snow Cat Travel says, "more and more people were asking us what they can do in Nepal as a two week holiday. They want to see the Himalayas naturally and want to do something different too".
Recognising this trend, Snow Cat Travel purposefully developed a wide range of multi-activity adventure holidays in Nepal to suit various levels of ability and taste.
With the large increase in demand, this appears to have paid off.
As Mark says, "no one was really offering anything different. The choice was either trekking or an overland tour. Yet, there are so many other activities you can enjoy in Nepal too; mountain biking, rafting, paragliding, micro-light flights, zip line, wildlife safaris etc. We decided to piece all the various activities into fun, but meaningful tours. Of course we'd often include a day or two of trekking as well, but we made certain that each and every one was not only unique, but that it could be done in two weeks".
However, Snow Cat Travel has also maintained its 'bigger than most' choice of classic Himalayan treks. "Trekking certainly hasn't gone away", says Mark, "we've seen an increase there too, particularly for our range of shorter treks, which were again developed with a fortnights holiday in mind".
Although Snow Cat Travel offer a massive amount of varied itineraries, Mark is adamant in pointing out that, "we specialise in exclusive, bespoke tours. Our itineraries are intended to be as varied as possible, but importantly they are suggestions. More and more families are wanting to visit Nepal too and as there is no such thing as the average family, our expertise and knowledge means that we can design a holiday that is just right for their family, not someone elses family".
From the lofty heights of Mount Everest, to the lowland sub-tropical jungle and with some of the friendliest locals to be found anywhere in the world there is indeed something for everyone in Nepal.
Snow Cat Travel even have a web page dedicated to "weird and wacky" ideas to include in a Nepal holiday too, from tribal home stays to meeting Kung Fu Nuns!
