TRIP OVERVIEW

The Himalayan country of Nepal was closed to foreigner until 1950s. Thus, the country has always been a subject of fascination to people from different walk of lives like researchers, trekkers, scholars, and travel lovers alike. In the medieval times, the Kathmandu valley was divided into 3 kingdoms, with each kingdom trying to outdo other in terms of architecture. Thus, the history has given us beautiful and exemplary settlements from medieval times.

In Kathmandu, we will visit the courtyards and palaces of these three former kingdoms which are listed in the UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.  The beautiful wooden carved palaces and porches, the countless shrines and stupas, and the perpetual vibrancy of the old Newari settlements will transfer you to a period dating back to centuries, which is just an hour’s drive from the International Airport. We will also visit the holy shrines and stupas of Pashupati Nath, Swayambhu Nath, and Boudha Nath among other temples which are of great historical and religious importance to Hindus and Buddhists alike in the country. The valley of Kathamndu is endowed with 7 world heritage sites, which we will visit in span of 2 days.

For centuries, Nepal has been an extremely fascinating destination for people from all walks of lives like travelers, scholars, and researchers for those interested in spiritual, art, culture and adventures. Once, the Kathmandu Valley was divided into three kingdoms. The positive side of those time were, each kingdom wanted to outdo the other kingdoms in terms of art and craft. That is the reason, now we can admire and enjoy the unbelievable dedication in building the temples, Palaces, Stupas and Natural Water sprouts etc. The Kathmandu valley itself is endowed with seven World Heritage sites.

From Kathmandu we will drive to the city of Chitwan which lies in the lowland of Terai region in the tropical forests. The beautiful city houses the most popular national park in the country, the Chitwan National Park. We can go for bird watching as the region is home to whopping 400 species of exotic birds. We can also go jungle safari on a jeep, or ride on an elephant’s back to elevate the whole experience. You can indulge in water canoeing in the serene Rapti River and also watch endangered Ghariyal crocodiles, the fish-eating crocodiles residing in its bank. Nepal is home to a quarter of the population of this almost extinct animal. We will also visit the elephant breeding center, which is one of the highlights of the Chitwan trip and spend some quality time with gentle baby elephants. In the night, we will attend the Tharu Cultural Program. Tharus are the indigenous people of the region and are believed to be auto-immune to Malaria which infested the forests of Terai until 1960s.

From Chitwan we will drive to the most popular tourist destination in the country, Pokhara. The valley is home to more than 3 pristine lakes such as Begnas and Rupa. While in Pokhara, we can indulge in adventurous activities like Paragliding which offers stunning vistas of 3 peaks over 8000m including the majestic Annapurna. Pokhara is also the fifth most commercial paragliding spot worldwide. We can enjoy other equally enthralling activities like zip flying and white water canoeing among others.
