Join us for an unforgettable experience of sightseeing around Kathmandu City. Get off the bus and walk down the cobblestone aisles to where the erstwhile kings of the Malla Dynasty and some of our Shah Kings resided in “Kathmandu Durbar Square,” better known as “Hanuman Dhoka” locally. Observe the ancient temples and see their stories unfold through pictures of the intricately carved out details of “Devi’s” and “Deities.” Witness the “Kumari Ghar”, the home to living goddess “Kumari,” who is believed to be pure in body and soul. Then get your hippies clothes on and take a walk down memory lane for the old “Freak Street” at Jhonchhe Tole still has a 60’s and 70’ air about it.
Peek into the history of Nepal, at the national museum nearby. A short ride later, you will be climbing up the 365 steps to reach the “Swayambhunath” Stupa. Better known as the “Monkey Temple,” it is home to troops of mischievous primates. View the city from a different vantage point, it is simply exhilarating. Chat with the monks and pray for world peace.
Hungry? Try some local "momo’s" for lunch (they are simply irresistible).
A quick drive to another part of the city, and it’s time to put on your walking shoes ready with your cameras. Witness a long line of Hindu devotees thronging the premises at the Pashupatinath Temple, take some selfies with the “Babaji”- an ascetic. A short drive takes you to “Boudhanath,” one of the largest Buddhist stupa in the world. Walk around and spin the big prayer wheel or shop around for trinkets. All this is in a day and you would still be left craving for more. These historical and religious structures are listed as UNESCO heritage sites. Overnight in Kathmandu.
After breakfast a 30 minute flight from Kathmandu, takes you to the “Lake City” Pokhara. Look out for another one of our happy representatives; he will drop you off at to your hotel.
Pokhara city has a lot to offer, in terms of natural beauty. The photographer in you will love, as the view of Phewa Lake with the serene “Fishtail” mountain in the backdrop is picture perfect. Hop in for a drink in some of the local pubs, which line the streets at the lakeside area.
You will be spoilt with choices as boating, bird watching, kayaking, swimming, and canoeing are some of the excursions available at the lake. The locals are warm and friendly; engage in a conversation for, you never know what you are going to find out. The “Varahi” temple in the middle of the lake sees Hindu worshippers every Saturday.
A short drive across the city will take you to Davis falls, or “Patale Changgo” in Nepali is actually an underground waterfall. The water flows underground through its natural tunnel of 500 feet from the fall made by the water currents beneath the land.
Another attraction is the watching the Seti Gandaki standing atop the Mahendra Pul (Pul: bridge). Flowing right through the city, the boisterous river runs completely underground at places. Amazingly, at certain points the river appears hardly two meters wide, but its depth is, well over 20 meters!
As the evening draws closer, it is time to head back to your hotel. Overnight in Pokhara.
Early risers are in for a treat! A short drive before the crack of dawn, “Sarangkot” welcomes you with the most amazing view of the sunrise. Head down to the hotel for a well-deserved breakfast, but the Pokhara odyssey continues.
The Old Bazaar is a bright and colorful marketplace, ethnically diverse as its traders. Just about 4km from Lakeside, it is a pleasant
, spot, speckled with shops selling everything from clothes to cosmetics and gold! Take a leisurely stroll around the stores and, shop and haggle with the locals for the right prices. At the heart of the bazaar you can marvel at the “Bindyabasini” Temple. The 16th century architecture is sure to delight you; it is dedicated to the goddess”Durga,” the deity of supreme power.
Find your peace at the “Shanti Stupa”, or the World Peace Pagoda. Founded by Nichidatsu Fujii, a Japanese Buddhist monk, it denotes world peace. The view of Annapurna range in the background is simply breathtaking.
Conclude your day with a wholesome authentic Nepalese cuisine in Pokhara. We recommend the “Thakali”, dinner prepared with love by local ethnic mothers. After dinner, there is plenty of nightlife to enjoy as there are lots of bars and pubs in the Lakeside area serving your favorite drinks up until midnight. But don’t overindulge as you have to travel tomorrow. Overnight in Pokhara.
Bid farewell to Pokhara and say hello to Chitwan! The 2.5 hours drive takes you through some of the most captivating landscapes. Home to diverse wildlife and tribal “Tharu” communities, it houses one of the many national parks, and is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
In the afternoon, you might be taking your first elephant ride, for it is a good way to get closer to the animals in the wild and the right time to whip out your camera, as you might spot the famous one- horned rhino or the elusive Royal Bengal tiger. Overnight in Chitwan.
After a hearty breakfast, we will usher you off to the elephant stables, and if you want, you can even give them a bath in the river. An afternoon walk through the jungle will take you to the banks of “Rapti” river, spot various aquatic life while canoeing through the calm waters such as the Gharial (alligator) and the Mugger crocodiles
A lunch break inside the park will provide you with a sweet respite from your saunter. Thereafter, join us on an adventure jeep drive through the jungle. Birdwatchers will be delighted at the diversity. Finally the drive will take you to the Gharial farm; watch as caretakers protect these creatures from total extinction.
Sit back and relax and let serenity take over in the evening, broken only by the sounds of nature. Overnight in Chitwan.
It’s time to say goodbye to Chitwan and start a four hours drive to Kathmandu covering 155 km. Halfway through our journey to Kathmandu, we will stop at Manakamana Temple gates. The temple is located on a ridge 1302 meters above; it is accessible via cable cars. Dedicated to the goddess Manakamana, it is believed that she fulfills wishes; however, just don’t tell us what you wished for or it might not be fulfilled.
The adventure is not over yet! After you reach Kathmandu, we are heading off to the hills again. A half hour’s drive and you can see yourself breathing in the fresh mountain air with the view of rolling hills at Nagarkot. Chill out with some cocktails or grab a bottle of lager at the hotel. Unwind your stiff joints for there’s more to do tomorrow. Overnight in Nagarkot.
The amazing sunrise at Nagarkot, with the view of Mount Everest and other snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, is simply breathtaking; the panoramic view of the Kathmandu valley below is an added bonus.
Grab some breakfast; you will be heading off to another fun-filled adventure two hours driving covering 68 km from Nagarkot. The Last Resort is located on top of the “Bhote Koshi” river gorge, at Tatopani close to the Tibetan border. Time to get your adrenalin pumping! The Last Resort offers a wide variety of exciting programs. Jump off the 160 meters bridgewith a bungee cord tied to your ankles, if you dare! The list goes on: canyoning, canyon swings, high ropes, and tandem swings. Overnight at Last Resort.
Scream with excitement as the waves of fresh water crashes against your face and hold on to the raft as the torrents in the “Bhote Koshi” river tosses and turns you. Whitewater rafting is definitely a fun activity.
