Overview

Looking for a Nepal adventure that goes beyond trekking?  Did you know that Nepal is one of the most cultured and bio-diverse countries on earth?

No other place on earth allows you to see the world’s highest mountains,  with yaks and buffalo (and maybe a yeti sighting) to sub-tropical jungle, with tigers, crocodiles, endangered one horned rhinos, and elephants, with stops at ancient religious and cultural sites along the way, all in one trip.

Make a plan to experience a taste of Nepal beyond the famous treks. From high snow capped peaks of the Himalayas in the north to the flat plain in the south; from exotic heritage tour of Kathmandu to the relaxing natural mountain atmosphere of Nagarkot; from wild life safari in Chitwan to nature excursion in Pokhara; all are set to give you the best taste of Nepal.  Nowhere will you find such a diverse tour experience in one go.

Your visit of the heritage sites in Kathmandu valley will take you to ancient Buddhist stupas, medieval palace squares, a Hindu cremation center in the open on the bank of a river, to show you the diversity in culture and the amazing craftsmanship of the ancient and medieval artisans of Kathmandu. You can rest and relax by the evening on the mountain top along the Kathmandu valley ridge. See a breathtaking view of the Himalayas and a stunning sunrise from the hill station then get ready to explore the wild life in Chitwan, one of the finest national parks in south Asia. You can expect additional exceptional close up views of the Himalayas from Pokhara and be thrilled by an optional adventure activity like paragliding, the world’s highest, longest and fastest zip flyer, bungy jumping or maybe an ultra-light flight. And take in the beautiful countryside life and culture during your bus rides.

This trip let’s you experience a true taste of everything that Nepal has to offer, by combining all of its diverse and beautiful places and activities into one trip. Give it a thought that there is more to Nepal than trekking; come experience it yourself and you’ll be overwhelmed with the extraordinary experience of traveling all of Nepal;

Once back home, you will want to share your amazing experience with your friends.

Kathmandu sightseeing and Nagarkot

After breakfast in the morning we go for the Kathmandu sightseeing tour. We will tour the UNESCO CULTURAL HERITAGE sites today which includes: Swoyambhunath - The oldest Buddhist Stupa in Kathmandu Valley, a beautiful home to lots of monkeys thus also known as Monkey Temple, it\'s also a perfect vantage point to see Kathmandu valley. Pashupatinath- A holy pilgrimage site for Hindus and is a Hindu Crematorium. Watch as the Hindu dead bodies are cremated in the most unique way in the world; we come across men with ash rubbed bodies, matted dreadlocks, the typical look of Hindu Holy Men known as Sadhus. Boudhanath- the biggest Buddhist temple in the world; a site for Tibetan Buddhism where we can visit monasteries, watch the Holy Monks busy in their chanting ritual going around the temple. Patan Durbar Square- A Medieval Royal Palace area which is also known as the city of fine arts, we can see the finest example of metal and stone carving back to 14th century as well as the amazing Nepali Architecture. Later on, we will drive to Nagarkot for about 1.5 hrs and stay overnight there. Nagarkot is a beautiful hill station 32 Kilometers east of Kathmandu and famous for sunrises and Mountain Views. We can enjoy the breathtaking view of Langtang range in the Himalaya along with other magnificent mountains including Sisa Pangma, Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishankar and also a tiny glimpse of Mt. Everest on a very clear day. Sunrise from here is as fascinating as it can be. The cool weather there makes us wish for more days there but so sad, we are checking out from here tomorrow.

Nagarkot - Bhaktapur - Chitwan

Early morning wake up for the sunrise. We will check out the hotel after breakfast and drive for about 40 minutes to Bhaktapur for a sightseeing tour of the world heritage town. After about 2 hours’ sightseeing of Bhaktapur, we start driving to Chitwan National Park. It takes us about 6 hours to reach this beautiful National Park in the south of Nepal. Chitwan national park was once the hunting ground of British and Nepalese aristocrats. Today, the animals - elephant, rhinoceros, tiger, leopard and deer - are protected, not shot. The greatest thrill here is to scout for wildlife on the back of an elephant. This national park is enlisted in the UNESCO’s Natural Heritage Site.
