Nepal Tour Package: Days 1 & 2 in Kathmandu
Your Nepali adventure vacation will begin with pickup from Kathmandu Airport and arrival at your comfortable accommodation. You will have the remainder of day one to make yourself familiar with your new surroundings and embrace the spirit of the Nepali capital.
Day two will guide you through Kathmandu’s main attractions, including Nepal’s famous temples that have been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. The Hindu temple of Shiva at Pashupatinath will mesmerize you with its legendary history and holiness – only born Hindus are even allowed to approach it! Next on the list is Boudhanath, a magnificent Buddhist holy site housing one of the world’s largest stupas, a monument of truly epic proportions. Another major shine for Tibetan Buddhists is the Monkey Temple of Swayambhunath, inhabited by ascetic sadhus (holy people) and sacred monkeys and dating to the 5th century. And of course, your glorious city tour will not be complete without the grandiose Kathmandu Durbar Square, the monumental site of the royal palaces of Nepal with their sophisticated architecture employing skilfully-crafted wood-carved elements.
After meeting the striking sights of Kathmandu, you will travel to the picturesque resort village of Nagarkot where you will spend the night. Just why you have arrived to this scenic “hill station” at nearly 2,200 meters (7200 ft.) you will discover as soon as the sun rises in the morning. The view from Nagarkot is truly breathtaking: you will see the immense snowy peaks of the Himalayas shining before you, including the majestic Annapurna, Manaslu and Ganesh… and if you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain!
The rest of day three will be dedicated to Nepal’s rural heritage with walking tours of quaint villages and ancient towns. Day four will await you with an entertaining three-hour hike to the renowned Namo Buddha pilgrimage site deeply tied to the epic story of Buddha. Next on the tour is a visit of the charming Gorkha District and the traditional town of Bandipur which has succeeded to preserve its old-time customs and atmosphere, as well as Pokhara, the City of Lakes, known far and wide for its striking up-close views of the Himalayas’ eight-thousanders. To appreciate the charm of Pokhara’s surroundings, you will embark on a memorable boat tour of the scenic Fewa Lake.
Day seven will once more send you up into the hills – to picturesque Sarangkot, a village appreciated for its sunrise panorama of towering Annapurna, which ranks among the world’s most dangerous summits to attempt. After breakfast, you will explore the vibrant town of Tansen, once the capital of the regionally influential Kingdom of Tanahun.
Day eight promises one of the most famous locations in all of Nepal – the mythical birthplace of Buddha himself, Lumbini. Marked by a proud Ashoka Pillar, Lumbini is a site of utmost significance for the Buddhist faith and large numbers of dedicated pilgrims flock to it annually. Lumbini, deservedly a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features ruins of ancient monasteries and temples for you to explore.
This spiritual experience also marks a watershed in your tour – from the grandiosity of the mountains onto the variety of the jungles! Your Asian jungle safari will begin on the very same day – hop on the back of a friendly elephant and enter the dense tropical rainforest! Learn more about the elephant population of Nepal at the elephant breeding center and embark on a canoe expedition. And before dinner, witness a unique side of Nepali culture and see the Tharu stick fighting dance.
You will spend the next two days discovering the wonders of Chitwan National Park on the back of an elephant. A humid tropical area hailed as the Heart of the Jungle, Chitwan boasts an amazing variety of wildlife – you will have the opportunity to observe regal Bengal tigers, prowling leopards, sturdy rhinos, hazardous crocodiles and crafty king cobras, all in their natural habitat! Not to mention the hundreds and hundreds of curious bird species and unique plant species like the silk cotton tree, kapok.
On day eleven, you will say goodbye to the jungles of Chitwan and head back to Kathmandu late in the morning. On the way back, you will stop at Kurintar and take the cable car to the heights of Manakamana, a venerated Hindu temple high up on the ridges.
