This tour includes three full days in the city centre of Kathmandu valley that provides insight into the rich cultural heritage of Nepal that includes Nepalese culture, lifestyle, art, and architecture date back to centuries. Besides the regular sightseeing tours of temples and Gods, the tours allow you to understand and feel more about the culture of Nepal. It is indeed true this is the very reason why the valley is on the heritage list of UNESCO. Many people find the Kathmandu valley as an open museum. Besides the regular places, we take you to Kritipur, Bungamati, and Khokana. These places where culture is very much traditional are less frequently visited by tourists.
Pokhara is the next popular tourist destination after Kathmandu. The serene lakes and the close-up view of the majestic Himalayan peaks are simply wonderful. The Pokhara valley lies in Nepal Midland. In the south is Mahabharat-Lekh and to the north is a high Himalayan range. It covers an area of about 125 square kilometres. It lies equidistant (170 km) between Tibet to the north and India in the south. Pokhara derived its name from the word "pokhari" meaning lake and is dominated by Machapuchere Himal (6997m) - the "Fishtail" shaped peak and the giant Annapurna Range. We stay overnight in Pokhara before the trek.
Upon arrival in Kathmandu, we take you to see the cultural heritages of Kathmandu valley listed by UNESCO in its World heritage list. Durbar squares of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur, Stupas of Swambhunath and Boudhanath, and the Hindu temple of Pashupatinath and Changu Narayan are all located within Kathmandu valley in the city centres except Changu Narayan. You will find Kathmandu an open museum. Most of the buildings are made of wood engraved with meticulous design with metal doors and roofs. These monuments are central to many festivals that happen here throughout the year. It is best to visit during the festival time. After the tour of Kathmandu, you would be thrilled to find rich culture, lifestyle and art, and architecture that date back to centuries still thriving. After going through many temples, images of Gods, and architecture that are part of the heritage we take you to Nagarkot (2195 m) to see sunrise view over the Himalayan range including Mt. Everest. We enjoy the mountain and its cool, fresh air. Nagarkot is situated on the northeastern rim high above the valley. Our next destination is Pokhara. It is famous for its serene lakes and closes up view of the Annapurna and Machhapuchare Himal. We spend two nights in and around Pokhara taking an easy walk on the ridge near Phewa lakes and a boat ride from the foot of Sarankot to your hotel. You get to see mountain villages, meet villagers and get a close-up view of Machapuchare peak and the whole range of Annapurna Himal. We fly back to Kathmandu, stay overnight before flying home.
