Art, Culture and Trekking in Nepal, with Sangeeta Thapa
The striking contrast between the kinetic streets in Kathmandu and the vast, silent Himalayan Mountains is an extraordinary experience for any traveller visiting Nepal. The sense of a pure culture, which has remained untouched by foreign colonisation, is almost palpable and it is this deep tradition and the unfailingly friendly people which make it so special.
This journey weaves between the historic palaces and modern art galleries of Kathmandu before flying to the Annapurna Mountains within the Himalayas for a few days of complete tranquillity in overwhelmingly scenic surroundings.
“Our aim is to give you an inside track into a country which has an ancient past as intriguing as its developing future”.
In Kathmandu you will be personally guided by Sangeeta Thapa a gallery owner and curator with an undying passion for Nepalese art and culture. Her knowledge and experience will lead you to some of Kathmandu’s most treasured secrets with exclusive access to galleries and museums to help you access the city from a local perspective. You’ll dine with local artists and meet expat residents, each with their personal view on political, historical and modern life in Nepal.
From Kathmandu you will fly to the central Himalayas where you will stay at a mountain lodge with views that cannot fail to leave you open-mouthed as you first step onto the outdoor terrace. Here we have arranged local artists, yoga instructors and guides to personally guide you through the Himalayan way of life in a way that very few visitors have the chance to experience.
