Thank you so much again for all of you help. My trip to India and Nepal was fantastic and absolutely flawless! Everything worked out perfectly and I will definitely use you again when I plan to return...which I will. I will definitely recommend you to anyone that wants to travel to that side of the world. Take Good Care and Good Luck!Warm Regards
I like this Highland Asia Company because of people, who are working in it. They always try to do their best, to fulfill everything, on what you agreed before beginning of the trip. This is important for people, who decide to travel in Asia, because experienced tourists know, that it's not always like this here.Vladislav Rajevski
Thank you for your kind words. You will be the first person I contact when I am ready to visit the countries you represent. Also, I will pass your name on to other travelers. My best to you and your company.Marion C.
I met your nephew in Nepal, he did an excellent job. Our guide and driver in Bhutan were awesome, too. Our guide in north India was wonderful, it was great to have a Tibetan-Buddhist guide for us. I want to thank you for your service, you did a great job planning the trip and taking care of the problems that arose.I appreciate your help.Juan C. and Cynthia A.

Passport and Visa for Nepal
Like most other countries, Nepal also requires that the remaining validity of your passport must be a minimum of six months when you depart the country. You also need a dedicated blank visa page for visa stickers and some blank spaces for entry and departure seals. Except for Indian nationals, all foreign travelers need a visa for entry to Nepal.
Nepal Climate and Weather
Nepal's climate varies with its topography and altitude ranging from an arctic climate in the mountains to the tropical in the southern lowlands. The northern mountain region, around an altitude above 3,300m, has an alpine climate with considerably lower temperature in winter as can be expected.
Money Matters in Nepal
Nepali currency is called Nepal Rupee and indicated as NRS or simply Rs. Nepalese Rupees exist in denominations of Rs 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1000. There are coins found in denominations of 5, 10, 25, 50 paise and Rs 1 and 2. One rupee equals 100 paise. Indian currency is also in circulation of Nepal except for the large bills of 500, 1000, and 2000.
Travel Safety in Nepal
Tourists are safe in the New Republic of Nepal. More than decade-old Maoists insurgency has ended with the abolition of 2 and half-century-long monarchy, and the country is towards peace and stability.
Festivals of Nepal
It stood when a western Scholar said Nepal has as many temples as houses, as many gods as populations. And as many festivals as the number of days in a year. Nepal has a long line of festivals throughout the year. Some of the major festivals are listed here.
Ethics and Etiquettes in Nepal
Travelers are always on the lookout of less frequented, untrodden, and wilderness areas for their trip. We usually receive requests from our clients that they want to go off-the-beaten paths and want to avoid popular touristy areas. But those less frequented or un-trodden areas no longer remain pure.
Preparing For A Trekking Trip To Nepal
Although you don't need to be an athlete to trek in the Nepal Himalaya, some degree of fitness level is required. The better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the trip. Trekking is about taking your time, setting your own pace, and enjoying the experience to its fullest. Commonly, most first-time trekkers are concerned that they won't keep up but soon discover that a steady pace will have them in camp well before they would have expected.
