Nepal

Our verdict:

The majestic Himalayas are only the start of Nepal’s attractions, from ancient temples to stunning lake views, wonderful wildlife and even the chance to visit the birthplace of the Buddha. With low single supplements and tailormade trips, it’s easier for solo travellers to head off the beaten track too.

Recommended tour operator: TransIndus

TransIndus says

The tiny Kingdom of Nepal may be most famous for Mount Everest and the majestic Himalaya but you don’t have to be a mountaineer to enjoy a holiday here – and it’s one of our most popular destinations for solo travellers.

  • cultural wonders
  • see Mount Everest
  • wildlife encounters

Amongst the many places to visit, you won’t want to miss time in Kathmandu itself, whose ancient quarter is home to 50 temples. Discover the beauty and wildlife of the Bardia National Park or enjoy a safari walking with elephants in the Chitwan National Park. Relax in lakefront Pokhara, from where you can see stupendous views of Mount Everest, and visit Lumbini, birthplace of the Buddha.

All of our trips are carefully crafted to ensure you enjoy every seamless moment, getting under the skin of Nepal, its rich cultural heritage, the wildlife and natural splendour.

We offer a range of private tailor-made holidays if you prefer to travel solo but most single travellers opt to join our small group tour.

Nepal Experience is a nine-day trip for between four and 16 people, with departures in March and April.  It is the perfect introduction to Nepali culture, history and natural environment with an expert English-speaking guide throughout.

You’ll travel through the Himalayan foothills of the Kathmandu Valley and discover the incredible medieval temples in historic Bhaktapur before heading to Bandipur for that breathtaking first glimpse of the Himalaya.

You will also visit Pokhara and the chance to glimpse the wealth of wildlife in the Chitwan National Park.

This trip represents outstanding value for money – you can pay a modest single supplement or we can try to find another participant of the same gender so you can share a room with no supplement.

You can travel to Nepal at any time of year but the best months for weather and visibility are February, March, April, October and November.
