Attraction details
Owner description: Encounters Nepal Dot Com is an ethically governed and environmentally aware Trekking & Adventure Tour Operator. The company exists to promote and share with others the diverse geographical beauty as well as the cultural wealth of our homeland, Nepal, as well as that of some of our neighbours, such as Tibet and Bhutan. Predominantly, it is the mighty Himalayan ranges that attract visitors from all over the world to Nepal. Upon arrival, guests to our country are then also captivated by the interplay of the majestic mountainous landscapes with the overriding hospitality of the Nepali people. Our rich spiritual life and our many vibrantly joyous customs are born of the melding of the Hindu and Buddhist cultures which have co existed here side by side for centuries. This adds a mystical dimension to most travelers’ experiences in Nepal. It is this interplay of magnificent landscapes, of friendly and welcoming people from many different ethnic backgrounds and the complex, beautiful overlay of religious rites and cultural practices that make a sojourn in Nepal a life – enhancing, sometimes even life changing, experience for all.Our company is proud to be able to show overseas visitors all facets of our beautiful land, through stunning mountain treks, at both lower and higher altitudes, depending on our guests’ interests and their physical capacities, to wild life safaris in the Terai, on the plains or rafting on mighty rivers.We stand proud knowing we act at all times as an ethical and compassionate employer of local staff and our company is also involved with local conservation organisations and environmental agencies in order to preserve the natural wonders with which Nepal has been blessed.

Our guide, Giri, was excellent. He guided us, ordered and served or meals, even woke us up when necessary. We always felt that he had our best interests at heart and he did all he could to make sure our trip was a success. Also, our porters were always friendly and helpful, I don't know how they carried our bags... More

Rishi is the man. He's a fixer in the good sense of the word. He hooked us up at every stage of our trip here in Nepal. Driver, plane tickets, ultralight flights over mountains he knows all. His English and Hindi are both good and he came to our hotel to check on things. I can't imagine a better employee... More

Bhutan had presented a unique experience on my first visit there with Encounters Nepal in April 2013. Returning again to Nepal in June this year, I decided to spend some of my time in the region, exploring a little more of Bhutan, again with Rishi Nepal's company, and opted for a 10 day tour into Central Bhutan.

When I arrived to Kathmandú I visited plenty of agencies and talked to many people, asking for prices to do the trekking. Encounters Nepal was not the cheapest option, but they seemed the most professional to me by far... and when you are going to spend three weeks in the mountains, you do not want to risk, so I finally...
