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.

My friends and I did the Annapurna Panorama trek! We had a wonderful trip where we visited new places every day. The trek took six days, and the guide was very nice and helpful. The nature is amazing and the price is acceptable. If you only have 1 week for trekking I would recommend this trip!

We booked a mountain flight using this tour company, Rishi is the best! He is very welcoming and the experience was very smooth from start to finish. The actual flight couldn't have been better, the day was clear and we got to see Mount Everest with no problems. I will greatly recommend Encounters Nepal to anyone!!

Arriving late at night in Katmandu wasn't a problem with Hotel and hotel pick up organised by Encounters Nepal. On a very short trip to Nepal I needed the local knowledge to plan my trip and Encounters had just that knowledge booking my flights, hotels and tours with ease. Thanks to them I have some life long memories

My son and I had a limited time to arrange a trek in the Annapurna region and with the fantastic assistance of Rishi it all came together seamlessly. A great guide, porter and tour company. A flight over Everest was an added bonus

Great guide, on this trek you see how every one lives and if ur really lucky even have a meal with the family inside. Went as high as 4000mtrs and we slept at 3500mtrs one night. Trek has its easy and steep parts but there was no rush as u have plenty of time each day. Good entry level trek

Quick easy way to see Mount Everest. Rishi was very helpful and also honest about the pros and cons (possible flight delays and cancellations etc), however mine went really smoothly with just a half hour delay. Tip: ask for front or back seats of plane, the middle seats - you will see the wing, but does add to some photo... More
