Unlimited possibilities await you in Nepal!

Find the answers to your bewilderment, as you observe the ancient temples and stupas give way to towering cityscape.  The city in its bare essentials confers the experience of being in the past and present at the same time.

Get energized! Let the majestic mountain ranges provide you with perennial encouragement to move on and experience pure nirvana beside the mystical “Gosaikunda” lake at 4380 meters. Restrain your trepidation, as you prepare to plummet several meters below tied to a Bungee cord, to face a raging river at The Last Resort and feel alive, and put your fear behind.  Unbelievable you thought, come on over let ecstasy take you over.

Overnight in Kathmandu.

Accommodation: Aryatara Kathmandu Hotel
Day 02 : Kathmadu sightseeing tour

Wake up to a new day, Kathmandu beckons.  Step out to the streets and dodge the scores of people, who smile at you when you leave the way, courtesy counts here! Or weave around the caravan of cars in the traffic jam; their horns along with the tinkling of temple bells nearby, orchestrate an unchained symphony. Follow the aroma of international cuisine in the restaurants, cut short by the strong fragrance of incense from the temple altar. Such is the city, vibrant, colorful and culturally enwrapped.

The only way to carry around the images of the distinctive stupas and temples at the “Durbar Square” is to capture them in your heart or the 16 GB memory card. The cobblestone paved roads lead you to the “Kumari Ghar” house of the Living Goddess “Kumari,” take a bow and feel blessed. The old “Freak Street” at Jhonchhe Tole, has the same atmosphere, since the hippie culture in the 1960’s. The National Museum enlightens you with the past.

Visit the “Swayambhunath Stupa,” or the monkey temple atop a hill that offers a breathtaking view of the city below. The red caped monks there will bless you with peace, while the monkeys will taunt you.

Team up with Hindu devotees to offer respects to the gods at “Pashupatinath” Temple, watch the“Babaji’s” as they watch you with intent eyes! A short drive takes you to “Boudhanath,” one of the largest Buddhist stupa in the world. The Tibetan settlers there illustrate their life as in Tibet. These historical and religious structures are listed as UNESCO heritage sites.

Ease back and enjoy trying out some of the town’s recommended eatery. Head out to “Thamel” area and meet people from different parts of the globe, there’s a heady mix of music from the Eastern and Western world. And beer is affordable!  Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 03 : Transfer to The Last Resort: 3 hrs drive

It’s time to test your challenging spirit, roughly 3 hours drive from Kathmandu. The Last Resort bets thumbs down your courage as it offers some of the most action packed optional activities available for adrenalin junkies. Brace yourself for an adventure of a lifetime, canyoning gives you an absolute rush of excitement as you abseil down steep canyon walls or step on the ledge and jump down into the raging Bhote Koshi River below.  Sit back and relax in one of the many camps pitched out near to the forest, the adventure continues tomorrow.  Overnight at the Last Resort.

Included meals: Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: The Last Resort
Day 04 : Bungee Jump (Optional), rafting, transfer to Kathmandu

It’s a new day; it is also the time to experience a feeling that is entirely different. The apprehension that builds up, as you approach the last few steps towards the edge of that ledge, it’s sure going to give you the creeps folks! Clench your teeth and shut your eyes tightly, as you free fall down 160 meters of oblivion, the jerk from the ropes jolts you awake, that’s when the adrenalin kicks in, shout out or scream, it’s going to be rapturous. Plus you can hide the funny facial expressions; they will be taking a video of this anyway.  (Please note that Bungee Jump is optional, it is not included in our list).

Then there’s rafting in the white waters of “Bhote  Koshi” River, it is another fun filled activity that energizes you as a whole, join a raft full of screaming people and feel free to scream as well. The Bhote Koshi river rafting is a full bodied experience; it is way beyond simply sitting idly and paddling. The occasional sense of calm comes around, when the raft glides on forward in a still pool of water, but only for a brief moment as the next second you will be heading down a raging rapid. The experience is just enlivening!

Roll down the windows on the highway back to Kathmandu; let the rushing wind caress your face as you watch the terraced hillocks and village houses pass by in a blur. Overnight in Kathmandu.
