Here at TTG we love a success story, and Nepal tells a pretty spectacular one. After the April 2015 earthquake caused Kathmandu’s most popular visitor attractions – including Boudhanath Stupa, Durbar Square and a number of Himalayan mountain paths – to come crumbling down, the country’s tourism industry took a substantial hit. But Nepal has made an impressive comeback, and is now offering more tours and treks than ever before. In this guide we look at what’s new in Nepal so that you can convince your clients the rehabilitated country is even better than its pre-earthquake self.

 

We’ve also created a contingency plan for you, for when bucket-list tours around the world are oversubscribed or restricted by permits. Can’t get your clients on the Inca Trail? Are your customers keen to see wild gorillas but unable to pay thousands of pounds for a permit? We’ve got you covered in a round-up of the best alternative tours to the classics.

 

Then, for those clients that want fully immersive, hands-on adventure travel without taking to bohemian backpacker trails alone, we’ve picked out escorted touring operators that offer interactive experiences. If you think that caring for pandas and trying Peruvian cooking is just for the independent traveller, it’s time to think again.

 

Towards the back of this guide we’ve asked representatives from some of the best tour operators in travel for portfolio updates, their unique selling points and best agent benefits. This means you can be on the ball when it comes to global touring and adventure travel, and meet not only your clients’ needs, but yours too.
