Experience Adventure with Shepherd Holidays: Your Trusted Himalayan Companion

Our Story

Shepherd Holidays Pvt Ltd, trading under the esteemed banner of Shepherd Holidays, is a trailblazing travel enterprise situated in the heart of Nepal, Kathmandu. Founded in 2019 by the enterprising entrepreneur, Bandhu Ghimire, and an experienced team with a decade of industry knowledge, Shepherd Holidays has rapidly established itself as a leading name in the realm of travel and adventure.

Our Expeditionary Vision

Shepherd Holidays' mission is nothing short of extraordinary: to curate personalized travel experiences that plunge our clients into the splendor and enigma of Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, and India. Armed with a profound understanding of these countries' unique geographical wonders and cultural legacies, our offerings transcend the boundaries of typical vacations, transforming them into meticulously crafted expeditions that unveil the captivating beauty of the Himalayan realms.

Navigating the Pandemic Storm

In the early days of Shepherd Holidays, our journey was met with an unexpected obstacle as the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc worldwide. We bore the brunt of this storm with grace, albeit not without challenges. Sixty-seven bookings were canceled, and operations had to be halted for a year, resulting in substantial losses. However, our unwavering faith in our efforts and a positive attitude propelled us forward. Despite the economic downturn in the tourism sector, our dedicated team continues to sprint ahead, heralding the arrival of brighter days.

The Challenge of the Digital Era

In an era where tourism trends have shifted towards e-commerce, where travel experiences are compared like everyday consumer goods, Shepherd Holidays strives to stand apart. We understand that the tourism industry cannot be reduced to mere features and pricing. Factors such as accommodation, field staff quality, vehicle conditions, additional amenities, and time spent at each destination significantly influence the overall experience. For instance, a Kathmandu sightseeing tour can be a brief four-hour journey or an immersive adventure lasting several days.

Despite of limited resources in the market we have gained precious goodwill and a loyal client base, driven by referrals and repeated visits.

At Shepherd Holidays, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to providing comprehensive services to maintain our clients' trust. Our success in the tourism industry is intricately tied to our clients' satisfaction and happiness.
