The Best of Nepal (Kathmandu, Pokhara & Chitwan) (8 days)
A close encounter with mysticism, culture, history and the wild
A trip that gives you an opportunity to explore temples and shrines of historical and archaeological interests in the medieval towns of Kathmandu valley where you will view sights that will take you back almost 300 years in time, where feudalism ruled the day until a single man called Prithvi Narayan Shah thought differently and unified a whole nation; that began a lineage of kings till present day Nepal. Added to this will be a blitz into Nepal’s exotic wildlife at the Chitwan National park. You will get to see the massive one-horned rhino, light-footed deer, an elephant breeding centre and the elusive tiger napping in the shade.
After this trip in the wild, you will drive to Pokhara through a lush, green highway where from the windows of your vehicle, your eyes will behold snowy mountain landscapes and in the course of your drive, you will pass through little hamlets and villages on the way that will give you some deep insights into Nepal’s rural lifestyles; till you finally reach Pokhara, a beautiful scenic lake town where nature is amplified with the views of majestic peaks almost at touching distance, clean water lakes with boating and canoeing thrills at your service. You will also see some natural wonders of nature in water falls and gorges and at dusk, when the sun dips behind the mountains, glimpses of twilight lighten up the skies that herald the end of day….and as you slumber after a wonderfully tiring day; the sound of crickets gently put you into blissful sleep…..its another day that will go into your diary….a story for the generations to come. A memorable trip that stays with you for a lifetime.
