socialtours.com travels & socialtreks.com adventures is a Nepalese company based in the centre of Kathmandu’s tourist district - Thamel. Our tailor made trips promote and preserve Nepal’s rich cultural and ecological diversity. Keeping our passion for people and nature close to our heart we endeavour to tailor make extraordinary trips to suit extraordinary people.


Nepal is regarded as one of the adventure capitals of the world and the majority of our trips cater for clientele who have a passion for adventure, a love of nature and a curiosity in culture. Some of our best products are trekking adventures covering the three major areas of Nepal (Everest, Annapurna and Langtang), but we also offer a little off-the-beaten-track adventure. Our treks range from a 21/2-day hike in the Chepang Hills of Chitwan to a full 24-day expedition trek of the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary.

For the adrenaline junkies Nepal has the world’s second highest bungee, the world’s giant‘est’ swing and for those who want to go even higher, tandem paragliding.  All this with the spectacular Annapurna range as a backdrop. Water lovers have the opportunity of rafting and kayaking on some of the world top rivers, under the guidance of fully trained river guides, renowned worldwide for their skill. For those who enjoy a bit of self-powered adventure Nepal offers numerous mountain biking trails. We have the longest altitude drop in the world, from a 5000m+ pass in Tibet to 1100m in the Bhote Koshi Valley. For people with more stamina we run trips from Kathmandu to Lhasa (around a 1000kms) and the even longer expedition to Mt. Kailash.

On our safari trips, wildlife enthusiasts have the chance to view the endangered one horned Rhino from atop an Indian Elephant, and if really lucky a glimpse of the Royal Bengal Tiger. A visit to Chitwan National park and you will be in the presence of 470 species of mammals, 500 species of birds, 126 species of fish, 150 species of butterflies and 47 species of reptiles!

For more cultural/spiritual experiences our trekking for health programmes combine trekking with meditation, yoga, ayruveda and shamanism.  Many of our trips incorporate homestays, which offer a total submersion in local traditions and village daily life. Finally, for those who need a little encouragement to accomplish their lifelong dream our life-coaching trips will guide the way to you realising your final goal.  We also run day heritage tours within the walls of the Kathmandu Valley.  These daytrips are easily combined with any of our longer trips and are a good introduction to your stay in Nepal.

Alongside our trips in Nepal and Tibet we also run trekking and cultural programmes in the Kingdom of Bhutan. Here you can experience the old world charm of a country where the people have been able to preserve their traditions and customs.

So, everyone else also offers these trips, what makes us different? We do it with a little gentleness, support the local communities, reduce the risks of environmental damage and preserve Nepal’s diversity of culture.  With all this in mind we aim to exceeding your holiday expectations.

Our clients are as diverse as our trips.  They travel from all four corners of the earth and range from a seven-year-old trekker to an eighty-three year old volunteer. Our competent guides have even safely guided a visually impaired woman through the Langtang region during the monsoon season.


At socialtours.com travels & socialtreks.com adventures we believe that cultural exchange is the core of tourism. If you wish to take this transfer of cultural understanding to the next level then volunteering is for you. Working together with selected organisations worldwide, we provide opportunities for volunteers to come into contact with real people and make a difference in their lives.


At the very start of the company, socialtours.com travels and socialtreks.com adventures developed a guideline for travelling responsibly in Nepal and set themselves a responsible tourism policy to which the endeavour to adhere too. These early efforts placed us as leaders in the responsible tourism movement within Nepal, something all team members are very proud of.

responsible tourism policy
We have produced a policy outlining a set of responsible points that we have set for ourselves. We cannot claim that we have achieved every point to our complete satisfaction, but continue to pursue our goal.  We have voluntary allowed out actions to be audited by an external mediator in an attempt to better ourselves in this field.

responsible travel guidelines
As a traveller, you have a role to play in responsible tourism. We always provide guidelines in our pre-departure information, reiterate this information in our pre-trek briefing and all our guides instill this on the trek.
