About socialtours

socialtours is a five time responsible tourism award nominated company with mentions on National Geographic Adventure and Lonely Planet. It has also been mentioned as one of the sustainable travel companies in a UNWTO publication.

We offer tours in four different categories:-

GO LOCAL | Discover hidden secrets These are specially designed offbeat tour extensions in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan in Nepal, and also include our more extensive tours that are cross-country. These trips are innovative and creative and work on preservation of culture and also spreading the tourism dollar to beyond the run of the mill tours.

COOK like a LOCAL | 3.5 hours
THROW your own SOUVENIR | day tour
NEWAR village WALK | day tour
WALKING with MONKS | day tour
CROP to CUP | day tour
GREEN triangle of NEPAL | one week
GREEN TRIANGLES of Nepal and India | 18 days

GET ACTIVE | soft adventure in the safety of professionals These trips are meant to take active and not so active people (not to forget families) on a taste of adventure, and trips generally also include the GO LOCAL series in the beginning or end of the trip. This can include trekking, hiking, walking, mountain biking, rafting, paragliding and the plethora of adventure activities offered in Nepal. Each trip is custom tailored to individual traveller or group requirements. We do regular popular trips in Nepal too, but what really gets us excited are the following

Tamang Heritage Trek | 7 days
Nepal Family Adventure | 12 days Best of Nepal - Trek, Raft, Jungle | 17 days
Yoga in the Mountains | 14 days
Muktinath Revisited | 14 days
Nepal Inside Out | 15 days
Great Himalayan Trail | between 7 days to 150 days

GET IMMERSED | Special interest travel These trips highlight a particular festival, or focus on a particular practice in Nepal, and take one deeper into this experience. This could be a trek that goes with Nepalese people, or a photography tour, or a practice of balancing good and evil prevalent in a particular month between Buddhists and Hindus, or a wildlife watch. Highly custom tailored itineraries, these look at niche markets and interests.

DANCING with SHAMANS | 12 days
SHERPA Dashain Trek | 5 days
RED PANDA watch | 16 days
RICE Planting Festival | day tour

GET INVOLVED | Philanthropic Travel The last category is for philanthropic travellers and service learning. We take time in conducting all the due diligence required in identifying priorities at a project and matching them with project requirement. Apart from this, we work with agencies working in development in Nepal, notable at the moment with Save the Children to identify projects that could benefit from our support and design trips that will fund-raise for these causes.
