I’ve been using Designer Incentives for the last 5-6 years and have run events with them in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. They are very prompt and creative with their responses and are always flexible with programme elements, constantly finding ways to make an incentive more memorable for guests. Their operational work is always exceptional during the events as well with every detail planned and carried out flawlessly. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism is first class and to top it off, they are a lovely group of people that I consider not only a DMC partner but also friends.Elliott Grant

Time difference / travel time
Nepal is 4 hours 45 minutes ahead during the UK’s summer time and 5 hours 45 minutes ahead during the UK’s winter time.
There are no direct flights from the UK to Kathmandu, however there are excellent flight connections via the Middle Eastern, India and Asia carriers.
Flying time from the UK is just over 11.5 hours.
Draped along the sky-scraping peaks of the Himalayas, Nepal is a land of yaks, stupas and Sherpas and some of the best trekking on Earth. Sandwiched between Tibet and India, Nepal is a Mecca for those seeking pristine mountain vistas, culture experienced amongst the pilgrim-filled old stupas and monasteries that dot the country, and the medieval Durbar squares of the old capitals of the Kathmandu Valley.
Nepal offers exceptional experiences for MICE, from the spectacular mountain flights to the Everest Valley, followed by a private helicopter trips bringing your client to within touching distance of the snow-capped peaks, to Royal Enfield motorcycles tours through the streets of Kathmandu and the surrounding villages. Or an audience with a living Hindu Goddess learning first-hand about their traditions, and hosting your gala evening in a UNESCO World Heritage site.
- Excellent international flight access into Kathmandu with multiple airlines including Etihad, Emirates, Qatar, Oman Air, Cathay, Thai & Air Malaysia.
- Diverse hotel offering for MICE programs to include the authentic Dwarika’s Group and international hotel chains such as the Hyatt Regency, Marriott’s, Radisson & Shangri-La’s, or private tented camps overlooking the Himalayas.
- Given Nepal’s diverse geography, there’s a plethora of unique and memorable places to host your client events.
