One of the newest additional to our arsenal is the GO LOCAL series - where we focus on trips that bring our the hidden secrets of Nepal, and allows travellers to experience Nepal like a local.

Here is what people are saying about these experiences:



Carlos & Beatriz

Both my friend and I we are very satisfied with the professionalism of the services and the staff who dealt with us. We have very much appreciated the kindness and full availability of the agency contact people. We have liked very much the program and itinerary which is perfect for first comers in Nepal and recommend to use it as a basis for future travellers. In particular, we thank warmly Bipin and especially our guide Jangbu Sherpa for their assistance and constant support. Mr Sherpa is an excellent person and very good professional who knows how to treat foreign tourists and knows a lot about the country. Also the accommodation chosen was very good and comfortable. Perhaps only a couple of remarks where some improvement could be made.

Our cooking class was the perfect way to finish our trip in Nepal, We have eaten Dalbhat nearly everydayso it was very useful learning how to make it so we can eat it back in Austrailia. Our teacher was excelent!!

She explained things clearly, had great English ,skills and made the experience reallu fun.

Highly recommended

Rise of the artisans


A local tour of Bhaktapur from peacock guest house walking around to Peacock window then into the peacock paper making house to see our guides houses which is being rebuilt following the earthquake.

He is gathering carved pieces that have been taken from buildings that have been demolished.

Recycling in making paper and recycling using the beautiful carved pieces.To lose these artisans would be tragedy.

It was lovely to see a different side of Nepal.

The sory of the Artisan is really amazing. I do like to have some insight into normal living the various region plus this tour certainly delivered on this expectation.

Great tour, Would also have like to hear a womens perspectives on life in Bhaktapur.

This course was so much fun ! We made two types of momos and learned several diffrent ways of folding them. Sakun walked us through each step and showed us ho to do it, then gave us tips on anything we had trouble with (mainly the folding techniques)

She and A smita were very friendly and great to talk to about Nepali food, culture and traditions and the end results were delicious !!! I loved the momos and souce and the chocolate momo at the end made a great dessert.Thank you so much for the awesome experience.I plan to use what i have learned to make these delicious snachs at home.
