Nepal - Community Project Travel

From beginning to the end the trip was fantastic. We had two wonderful guides with completely different strengths. Both leaders were very professional and caring. The trek was magnificent. It was well worth climbing to see the wonderful views once we reached Namche Bazaar. Our guides were wonderful. They did a great job of looking out for us on the trek and a fantastic job of looking after us in camp. The food was amazing. The porters were also really friendly and helpful and deserve medals for lugging all our gear around.


The local villagers at Jumbesi made us feel really welcome and put on a special dinner at the monastery. We were overwhelmed with the welcome they gave us and also the thank you. We had a great bunch of other trekkers on the trip and we were all matched up well with our room mates. We were very lucky with the weather and had day after day of awe inspiring views. There is not one bad thing that I can say about the trip. The trip was a life changing experience and I would love to do it all again. I would like to thank everyone involved. And I hope that one day I get to travel again with World Expeditions.

Sri Lanka is Soaring

27/02/2013

Elephants in Sri LankaSri Lanka is soaring as a destination in its own right, now elevated into the spotlight after landing in the #1 spot on the coveted Lonely Planet Best Country List in 2013. More than just an extension or stop over from India, Sri Lanka has its own unique charm that should not be overlooked.

After over two decades of civil war and political turmoil this magical island is now open for international travellers to discover. Low-cost flights and affordable prices offer amazing value for money and allow you to truly get off the beaten track while exploring divine ancient cities, pristine natural landscapes and diverse national parks.

Cycle through misty highlands and dense jungles, take a wildlife safari in Minneriya National Park to spot wild elephants, white water raft down the Kelani River, trek through tea plantations and rice paddies, relax on divine coastlines, tour the breathtaking grandeur of the ancient city of Anuradhapura, or sample delectable dishes with chef escort Peter Kuruvita.
