Nepal Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, trekking guides and off-the-beaten-path places in Nepal
Hello and welcome to our Nepal travel blog. You will find all our Nepal blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Nepal travel blog because you are considering a visit to the subcontinent, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to the region. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Nepal.
A country very close to our hearts, Nepal is arguably where this website was born. We began our full-time nomadic lifestyle with seven months of living in Kathmandu followed by many travels ‘beyond’. Hence the name of our travel blog. That extended stay in Nepal wasn’t our visit, or last, trip to Nepal but it is somewhere we are well overdue for another visit. Mark has trekked all of Nepal’s major trekking trails and is somewhat of an expert; his favourite region for trekking is Langtang.
Our Nepal blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
