Dec 3, 2018

Patagonia… to put it simply - If it’s not on your bucket list, then you need a new bucket list. We thought for weeks about how we would describe the natural beauty of Patagonia and after weeks of thinking and discussing, we ended up with less than we started. What we can tell you is that it's by far, the single most beautiful part of the world that we have ever been able to experience. Many times in our stay, we found ourselves gazing at something, in some direction, trying to put thoughts to words, but coming up with absolutely nothing!

Nestled high up in the Himalayas, beautiful Nepal is completely landlocked. With India surrounding the east, south and west and Tibet to the north, this place is a trekker’s paradise offering an epic combination of Himalayan views, golden temples, charming hill villages and jungle wildlife.
