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 – walking, visiting remote monasteries, camping in the wilderness and enjoying some amazing meditation, yoga and other wellness experiences, many of which originate here 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 in the eastern Himalayas, a charming haven that was named the 'Best Remote Retreat' in the Tatler Travel Awards 2021. Afterwards, you will spend your final two nights at Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel, which 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.


    The journey you will take

    On this fantastic small group trip, you will travel from Kathmandu to The Happy House in the remote eastern Himalayas for five amazing days’ exploring this spectacular corner of the world. You will finish your journey at Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel, a wonderful mountain wellness retreat.

    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.

    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.

    The Details


    The price of all of our small group trips includes domestic flights but excludes international flights. We have suggested flights we recommend that our clients travel on that work well with the itinerary and are happy to book these and manage them for you however, if you would prefer to book your own flights that is fine too. We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport to make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. 

    Navigating the Airport

    We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. For clients who have been unable to travel due to COVID-19 in the last few months, we have had outstanding success at making alternative arrangements and deferring their bookings to a more suitable time in the future – in most cases, at no additional cost. Similarly, in the event of cancellation, we have actively worked with our suppliers on the ground to recover funds and, to date, have either managed to recover 100% of the funds, or the majority of the funds, with the balance in the form of a credit note where possible. 

    Going forward, we can guarantee that should you not be able to travel due to COVID-19, we can defer your ground arrangements to a date that you are able to travel, subject to availability and seasonality, at zero cost to you and have secured a no increase agreement with our suppliers for travel until the end of 2021. We are also able to change both international and domestic flights, but this may incur additional cancellation and alteration fees imposed by the airline, which we will mitigate when we can. For added peace of mind, all client funds deposited with us or suppliers are held in a distinct ring-fenced account, until such time as they become payable.

    We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of COVID-19 cover in the event that you, or a member of your party, contract the virus either before or during your trip. 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. Get in touch with us to find out more. 

    Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd 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 so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely once borders are open. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. Every trip starts with a blank piece of paper and is totally tailor-made to you. However, we understand the demand for destinations that can be reached by direct flight and itineraries designed to avoid built-up and crowded areas and staying in smaller hotels, private houses and on boats that you can take with family and friends. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination and can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.

    Our small group trips have a fixed number of spaces, set dates and a set price per person. 

    We fully appreciate that paying the full balance for your holiday 60 days or more in advance, when it’s not clear if your trip can take place, is a daunting prospect. To offer further reassurance and allow you to defer payment of your balance for as long as possible, we have agreed with our suppliers to make balance payments as late as 30 days prior to departure, allowing us to ensure your trip is viable before asking for any balance payment. To allow for payment to be received from you and paid to the relevant suppliers in time, we will invoice you a week to 10 days prior to that balance payment being due.
