Nepal

I regard my trek with my sons (in Nepal) led by Satish as one of the highlights of my life. ...Satish's care was just extraordinary....I could not recommend World Expeditions and Satish too highly.

Southern Turkey Trails

For walkers interested in exploring two of Turkey's most special natural and historic regions this itinerary will not fail to inspire. Taking in the wonders of Istanbul, we head into the country's interior to the fascinating Cappodocia region where a series of day walks will uncover a treasure trove of sights. These include ancient churches and monasteries from the Byzantine era and elaborate underground cities. Amongst these relics is a living culture of traditional villages and river valleys, but the region is best known for the unique rock formations and chimneys manicured by old civilizations to carve out houses and churches. The next stage of our journey centres around the beautiful township of Fethiye, with day walks along various sections of the Lycian Way. This rugged mountain region offers splendid views, archaeological sites and quaint villages. In the company of our expert local guide, these very different regions of Turkey promise a fascinating window into the country's rich and varied history.
