A small part of Nepal has had a big earthquake in April 2015. We participated in relief and are now working in recovery. socialtours is open for business, and we are even more determined to be professional, and build back better. You can help us in the process. Tourism is more important than ever. A free day in Kathmandu or Pokhara can still be a day of discovery. Discovery of Local Food and Cuisine, of local handicrafts producers, or organic food, or a discovery of livelihoods, or the insides of Buddhism. At socialtours, we believe that these unplanned days will be the moments you will remember the most in Nepal, whether you learn how to cook, go to a coffee farm, or just cycle around the small picturesque communities around these cities, or hike on our 8000'ers of Kathmandu (yeah, 8000 ft. not meters). Yes, we also conduct off beat treks and adventure activities around these magnificent day inspirations. Talk to us, we will HIGHLIGHT your trip to Nepal.

The best way to spend relaxing morning in Kathmandu and learn the recipe for one of the traditional Nepali foods. We choose the momo lesson and after the chef took us shopping at the local markets, she explained us how to prepare everything like the...More

We didn't choose to do a cooking class, instead we opted for the "Slice of Kathmandu" walking tour. Our guide was a charming, smart young woman named Anura Rai. Anura helped us navigate the winding lanes of central Kathmandu, sharing interesting facts and stories and...More

This was a highlight of Kathmandu for me. We made dal ba'at, curry veg, pickles and a tomato sauce with rice and a salad. Our guide helped us pick the vegetables at the market, and we enjoyed the hands on approach to making food. Thank...More
