Highlights

Nepal is a beautiful and fascinating country, and this tour has been designed to give you a taste of many of the country's highlights, without featuring any strenuous trekking or white water rafting activities (these can always be added in if you wish). You'll see Hindu and Buddhist temples and stupas, explore interesting hilltop villages, see spectacular mountain views and enjoy some wildlife safaris in Chitwan National Park.

Accommodation is in a mix of heritage properties, wildlife lodges and boutique style hotels; we're not aiming for luxury, but comfortable, clean, friendly and interesting places to stay a step higher in standard to our normal group tours. The tour itself can be shortened or extended, and also combined with time in India, Tibet or Bhutan if you wish.

The tour starts in Nepal's bustling capital city, Kathmandu. First we'll take a spectacular Everest mountain viewing flight, then explore the old city on foot with a local guide, and visit the huge Buddhist Swayambunath stupa overlooking the city. Next we head to the Newari hilltop villages of Gorkha and Bandipur en-route to Pokhara.

The lakeside town of Pokhara sits at the foot of the Annapurna range of mountains, and various excursions or day walks are available here. Our next stop is Chitwan National Park, where you have plenty of time for a range of safari activities in the park, looking in particular for the endangered one horned rhino and any signs of tigers, as well as many other wildlife. The tour finishes back in the Kathmandu valley with a stay at the beautiful Dhulikhel Mountain Resort and visits to the important pilgrimage sites of Pashupatinath temple and Boudhanath stupa.

Detailed Day Wise Itinerary

DAY 1 : KATHMANDU

The urban sprawl that makes up modern Kathmandu is in fact two cities, Patan and Kathmandu.

 

DAY 2 : KATHMANDU

This morning you will be taken for a visit of the Hindu culture in Nepal, Pashupatinath. This is the place where holy saddhus pray. The Pashupatinath Temple is a famous, sacred Hindu temple dedicated to Pashupatinath and is located on the banks of the Bagmati River 5 kilometres north-east of Kathmandu Valley in the eastern city of Kathmandu the capital of Nepal. This temple is considered one of the sacred temples of Hindu faith .The temple serves as the seat of the national deity, Lord Pashupatinath. This temple complex is on UNESCO World Heritage Sites's list Since 1979. This "extensive Hindu temple precinct" is a "sprawling collection of temples, ashrams, images and inscriptions raised over the centuries along the banks of the sacred Bagmati river". We then continue to the holiest shrine for the Buddhist culture in Nepal, Bouddhanath, with its large stupa, this is the place where all devout Buddhists come for a pilgrimage. After completion of these two spots, you will be taken take you for a visit to Patan. Also known as Lalitpur , the city of beauty is separated from Kathmandu only by the Bagmati River and is the second largest town in the valley. Lalitpur is fragmented from other cities due to its substantive architectural ancient masterpieces. Patan's central Durbar Square is absolutely packed with temples: Its an architectural center point with a far greater concentration of temples per sq. meter than in Kathamandu or Bhaktapur. Within the city also lies the Tibetan refugee center, home to most of the valley's Tibetan population. While technically refugees, the Tibetans are some of the wealthiest people in the valley because of the carpet industry they operate. For those looking to bring home a fine Tibetan carpet, this is the place to shop. You will then go to Swayambhunath the golden spire of the 5th-century Swayambhu stupa is adorned with a colorful fluttering of prayer flags; it crowns a hill overlooking the Kathmandu Valley and offers fantastic views over the city of Kathmandu. Swayambhunath is one of the most recognizable symbols in Nepal and the painted eyes of Buddha watch all who ascend the worn stone steps.
