Extend your stay
As you are flying via Delhi, for a longer adventure, you may wish to combine your exploration of Nepal's Sailung Valley, with visits to India's most iconic and cultural cities that make up 'The Golden Triangle', Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. PLEASE NOTE: if stopping off in Delhi you will need a visa for India. Please call for full details.
Ready and waiting!
After several months of hard work, which saw everyone pull together to make repairs to the guesthouses as well as to their own dwellings, the villagers of Sailung are enjoying receiving guests once again.
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • privately guided walks in the mid-hills of the Nepalese Himalayas
  • an accessible and authentic Himalayan experience
  • friendly hospitality in welcoming guesthouses
  • astonishing views, that just get better and better
  • special night in a tented camp for astonishing sunset and sunrise panoramas
  • luggage transported throughout your stay
  • opportunity to explore fascinating Kathmandu

It has been truly inspiring to see how the communities of the Sailung Valley have recovered after the earthquake of April 2015 and we are delighted that they are now able to welcome you back to share in this beautiful corner of the world again.

A few hours’ drive from Kathmandu and away from Nepal’s busy trekking areas, the hills and valleys of the little-known Sailung offer accessible walking and simply awe-inspiring scenery. Traditional villages are scattered across steeply terraced hillsides, separated by high wooded ridges and deep river valleys. With each ascent, ever-more breathtaking views of the Himalayas greet the eye, as memorable as the warmth of the welcome you receive on arrival at each mountain community. The people are curious about visitors yet supremely courteous; happy to let you enter their lives and keen to share their local knowledge.

Standing on the top of Sailung at 3146m, feeling the warmth of a rising sun, a full moon sinking to the west, surrounded by ancient stone shrines, waves of hills and valleys in all directions, not a breath of wind and utter silence… that was very special.

Our walking holiday in Nepal has been created in conjunction with Village Ways. With your own local guide, you explore the mystical Sailung Valley in the so-called Mid-Hills of the Nepalese Himalayas, while staying in village guesthouses. The people who live here work hard to cultivate a remarkable array of crops yet never to the detriment of their natural surroundings. They are conscious of their place in the rhythm of life, creating an overriding sense of harmony which encourages you to relax into the slow pace of rural life.
