Slow Beauty in Nepal
Snow covered peaks rising above high valleys covered by blooming apple trees. A monastery on a ridge. Overlooking a village untouched by roads. While trekkers are licking sun outside a high altitude tea-house. A local festival puts color on daily life. Color on a place where dreams, poems and pictures unfold. At Go Beyond Asia we have for more than 20 years inspired travelers to explore less known treks in the Himalayas.
Nepal is Himalaya
25 years ago we trekked for months in Nepal. First Everest Base Camp in a long 30 days strenuous trek, then off to the Annapurna chain, then up the valleys and into the Kingdom of Mustang. And we fell in love.
22 years ago we opened our service office in Nepal, in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, as 90% of all travelers get into Nepal through Kathmandu. Since then we have serviced thousands of curious travelers. We called our operation Highlander because that was what we truly were. Mountain people. And because that is why travelers go there: to experience the Himalayas.
For 10 years there were conflicts in Nepal and partly due to that Nepal has been the country least benefitting from the Asian growth. Now there is stability and the war is over.
Though Nepal is still one of the poorest countries in the world.
But, what Nepal lacks in infrastructure and monetary wealth, is compensated for by the friendliness of the Nepalis, and the scenery. 8 of our world’s 14 highest mountains are in Nepal. So naturally what we are specialized in here is adventure, trekking, rafting, you name it.
Below under "tours" you will see a selection of the treks and adventures we offer.
But you are welcome to contact us if you have a special request. A special adventure, just for you.

When to go to Nepal?
The prime seasons to visit Nepal and do trekking are spring and autumn.
So if it fits in your planning go in one of these periods. In 1000 meters height the temperature is normally a bit more than 25 degrees in the day hours, but still chilly in the night. Perfect for trekking and other physical adventures like mountain biking and rafting.
In spring, from late February most years, to early May, flowers and plants blossom. All rice fields get crispy green, and the sky is mostly clear with little rain. In high altitude basecamps most climbing expeditions are preparing for climbing in late April and early May.
In summer, normally from mid May to mid August,it is the rainy season, and heavy or light rain falls most days. Due to the rainfall it gets muddy in most of the mid-hill mountain areas, and therefore we normally do not recommend trekking in Nepal during this period. An exception is the areas called Dolpo and Mustang. It is in Nepal, but actually weather wise on the Tibetan plateau. In summer it is mostly dry here and fine for trekking.
In autumn,September through November the sky is mostly clear after the summer monsoon with fine visibility in the mountains. Autumn is less green than spring but it is harvest time.
In winter, the upper valleys and high altitude areas get heavy snowfalls, and temperatures are low. It is mostly experienced trekkers going to Nepal in the winter. The winter you are suggested to trek in lower altitude, visit Kathmandu and other cities, visit Chitwan National Park and the trek around the Kathmandu Valley.
