Small Group Travel

    Specialist group trip Nepal

    A rejuvenating escape in Nepal

    Henrietta Loyd invites you to join her on a revitalising and spiritual journey. The trip will include walking, visiting remote monasteries, camping in the wilderness and enjoying amazing meditation, yoga and other wellness experiences, many of which originate in Nepal.

    A captivating blend of Hinduism and Buddhism, this Himalayan kingdom is a wonderfully spiritual place, teeming with palaces, temples and medieval towns. It is also one of the most beautiful lands in Asia, home to rivers and mountains – including eight of the world’s 10 highest peaks – offering incredible trekking, as well as national parks that harbour the greater one-horned rhinoceros and the Bengal tiger.

    Your host, Henrietta Loyd, has meticulously crafted this itinerary for a small group of like-minded individuals looking to get away on a fascinating and restorative journey in a beautiful country. The trip focuses on wellness, spirituality and escapism – all things Henrietta loves and resonates with. This is slow travel at its best; you will spend longer in each place to get under its skin and engage with its people, and have time to really relax and rejuvenate on your holiday.

    For five nights, we have booked out exclusively The Happy House, a charming haven in the eastern Himalayas. Afterwards, you will spend your final two nights at Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel, a retreat that is all about happiness, health and wellbeing. Private helicopter charters will provide an amazing way to travel between each place.

    It is through our unrivalled knowledge and relationships on the ground that we have been able to create such incredible experiences in Nepal. These include sleeping under the stars in a spectacular spot in the Himalayan wilderness, waking up to views of Everest, and visiting the most beautiful local monastery to join the monks for morning prayer and lunch. 

    Overall, we promise you a truly extraordinary trip in this beguiling destination that will ensure you return feeling rewarded, restored and rejuvenated.

    *To fully enjoy this trip, guests will require adequate mobility and agility.

    The Highlights

    What Makes this Trip Spectacular

    The Happy House

    Staying at The Happy House hosted by Ang Tshering Lama

    We have booked out this beautiful wooden lodge exclusively for our group. Staying here, nestled in the mountains of the Lower Solukhumbu region, is an incredible experience – not only for its stunning location in a Beyul (‘sacred hidden valley’) in the Himalayas but also the privilege of being hosted by the owner, Ang Tshering Lama, in his amazing family home. Spending time with Ang is undoubtedly a highlight in itself. He is a local Sherpa legend and will take you to nearby villages, and monasteries built by his great-great-grandfather, to introduce you to the people who live there. He will give you an unrivalled insight into Tibetan Buddhism and Sherpa culture.

    Camping on Ratnange Ridge Nepal

    Hiking + sleeping under the stars in the Lower Solukhumbu region

    This is Himalayan majesty at its best. You will be embarking on some wonderful walks encircled by this spectacular mountain scenery, including to the Chiwong Monastery and the Ratnange Ridge, where you will camp for one memorable night.

    Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel

    Rejuvenating yourself on a wonderful wellness escape

    Focusing on wellness, spirituality and escapism, the itinerary has been carefully designed to be as revitalising as possible. You will enjoy a whole week of spiritual and cultural experiences, including sound healing and yoga with incredible teachers, Ramesh Sapkota and Rupesh Shrestha, monk-led meditation, singing bowl therapy sessions, massages and soaking up the local way of life accompanied by Ang Tshering Lama who is a local treasure. Dwarika’s Kathmandu, The Happy House and Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel all have wonderfully rejuvenating experiences on offer. 


    Support the Sir Edmund Hillary Hospital, Phaplu

    Visit the Sir Edmund Hillary Hospital with Ang, the place where he was born. The Happy House works very closely with the hospital, regularly helping with the health camps and other medical initiatives. It is extremely inspiring to speak to the nurses and doctors and learn about the vital work they do here in Phaplu and all over Nepal. The price of this trip includes a £250 donation per person to the maternity ward here – the only one of its kind in the region – and where your contribution will go a very long way. 

    Travel is precious: a journey through Nepal

    Our Last Trip


    The world has transformed dramatically since cazenove+loyd was founded in 1993. On every trip we take, we wonder how that destination will look in another 30 years. We are passionate about our destinations and understand that it has become more important than ever to conserve their wildlife, habitats and communities for future generations.

    Travel with Experts

    Meet Your Guides

    Ang Lama

    Ang Tshering Lama, your excellent local guide, comes from the Lower Solukhumbu region and was born in the Edmund Hillary Hospital, Phaplu. After growing up between Kathmandu and the mountains, he moved to the United States in his late teens and studied finance in New York. After graduating, he worked as a budget analyst for a year until he felt the mountains calling him home. Since returning to Nepal, he has put his heart and soul into restoring The Happy House to what it is today – a beautifully crafted home. He knows the surrounding area and its people like the back of his hand, and spends his time mountain-biking, doing yoga, reading and anything else that positively balances the mind and body.

    Henrietta Loyd

    Henrietta Loyd, the Co-Owner + Founder of cazenove+loyd, will personally host this trip. Henrietta has wanted to visit Nepal for years and was enthralled by the feedback from a recent trip made by one of the team. She has assiduously honed every detail of this fabulous itinerary, which is all about wellness, spirituality and escapism – all things she loves and resonates with. She believes nothing should be compromised. This means having The Happy House all to yourselves, sleeping under the stars in a stunning spot in the Himalayan wilderness or getting private access to a fascinating monastery and meditating with monks.



    Private access

    Our hand-picked specialists, guides and leaders ensure unrivalled insider access that you wouldn't normally be able to achieve unless you were travelling as a group, allowing guests to experience the destination in a very special way.

    Specialist guides

    Small group travel gives you an amazing opportunity to spend time with true experts in their field. Each trip is accompanied by an owner – either Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell or Henrietta Loyd – as well as top specialists, guides and leaders. 

    Travel with like-minded people

    Our small trips often form the beginning of life-long friendships. Much of the journey is spent as a group, but there is plenty of time to relax and enjoy your own space too. Henrietta and Christopher are brilliant at reading their guests and being proactive and reactive to the flow of the trip.

    Our small group trips are in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world. With that in mind, most of our itineraries include an inbuilt donation to a local initiative that you are likely to visit on the trip.

    The price of all of our small group trips includes domestic flights but excludes international flights. We suggest flights for our clients that work well with the itinerary and are happy to book and manage these flights. However, guests can also book their own international flights if they would prefer. 

    We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey. 

    We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility in order to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility on any one of our small group trips.

    We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.

    Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.

    We have put the relevant measures in place on every one of our small group trips, so that we are ready to welcome you safely. Sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties in which we will be staying are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements.
