Highlights

 

Uncover spectacular landscapes, magnificent mountains, tiny villages and ancient cities on this 11 day Best of Nepal tour.

Set out for the remarkable Kathmandu Valley on a full-day sightseeing excursion that sees you learn more about this region; the most densely populated in Nepal. It is teeming with UNESCO World Heritage Sites (there are seven, to be exact) and no shortage of fascinating things to see and discover, including various temples and shrines. Highlights include Patan Durbar Square, Boudhanath Stupa and an ancient royal palace. Put Pokhara, the second-largest city in Nepal, in your sights and be left breathless as you take in the magnificent outlook across the Himalayas from tiny village of Sarangkot. These panoramas are so spectacular, it makes the prospect of an early morning wake-up call more than worth it! Equally jaw-dropping views are promised once you complete the hike to Naudanda, another small local village.

See some of Pokhara from the water as you take a boat ride across Phewa Lake, and then get a bird’s-eye vantage point once you summit the hill on which the World Peace Stupa sits. Make your descent down the slope to Davi’s Falls. Take a walk on the wild side with time in Chitwan, a district renowned for its wildlife encounters. Venture into a local village on a guided tour, and head off on jungle walks, elephant safaris and bird-watching excursions through this lush landscape. Plus experience the cultural side to the region with a Tharu stick dance show. Return to Kathmandu for a day trip to Bhaktapur to visit Bhaktapur Durbar Square, among other landmarks. Finally, sit down to a delicious dinner of Nepalese cuisine and watch a traditional dance performance – the perfect way to end your time in Nepal.

 
 

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Kathmandu

Make your way to the airport and catch a flight that takes you to Nepal! You land in Kathmandu, the Nepalese capital city, are met upon arrival by a transfer who will take you to the hotel for check in. Have the rest of the day to relax after your flight, or get out into the city to begin exploring the neighbourhood around the hotel.

Day 2: Kathmandu (B)

Meet up with your fellow travellers after breakfast, and head out on today’s excursion to the Kathmandu Valley. The Valley is the most densely populated place in Nepal and is made up of three major cities: Bhaktapur, Kathmandu and Lalitpur (also known as Patan). There are seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites to see within the Valley, including the Durbar Square in each of the districts, plus a number of temples and stupas. See the ancient royal palace that was once home to the rulers of the Malla Dynasty, and admire the Boudhanath Stupa, which is the largest Tibetan Buddhist temple of its kind outside of Tibet. The group returns to Kathmandu in the early evening and the night is yours as free time.

Day 3: Kathmandu – Pokhara (B)

Set out on the scenic drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. This trip takes about six hours and sees you make a pitstop at the Ganesh Himal and Manaslu peaks – both make up some of the Nepalese Himalayas. Continue to Pokhara afterwards and arrive in this beautiful city, known as a launching pad for those tackling the Annapurna Circuit through the Himalayas. It is also the second-largest city in Nepal and is popular for its adventure sports, stunning lakes, and cluster of temples and shrines. You have the evening as free time to begin uncovering Pokhara’s charms.

Day 4: Pokhara – Sarangkot – Naudanda – Pokhara  (B)

Embrace an early wake-up call as the group makes the drive out to Sarangkot. This village may be tiny, but it offers out-of-this-world views of the Annapurna Himalaya. Sunrise and sunset are two of the most popular times for visitors to Sarangkot, but the sweeping outlooks will impress any time of day. Have your camera fully charged and primed to snap photos – though no photography could ever do justice to the in-person panorama that encompasses Fishtail, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhare. Breakfast is taken at a local hotel ahead of a hike to the village of Naudanda. This trek takes about three hours. Return to Pokhara by car and have free time for the rest of the afternoon.

Day 5: Pokhara – Peace Stupa – Pokhara  (B)

Hop into a boat for a ride across Phewa Lake. Make the roughly one-hour hike up to the World Peace Stupa and be rewarded for your efforts with incredible views of the lake, the Himalayas and the Pokhara Valley. Begin the downhill descent to Davi’s Falls and see this ancient cave system, which is also the longest in South Asia. Travel by coach back to Pokhara and have free time.

Day 6: Pokhara – Chitwan (B, L, D)

Your time in Pokhara comes to an end as the group moves to its next destination in Nepal: Chitwan. This drive is expected to take about six hours. Upon arrival, join a wildlife tour through the village of Tharu.

Day 7: Chitwan (B, L, D)

The Chitwan district is arguably best-known for its wildlife encounters, and that is exactly what’s on the itinerary today. The full-day agenda sees you take a walk through the jungle and then hop onto the back of an elephant for a safari ride through this lush landscape. There is also an option to visit an elephant breeding centre. Tonight at dinner, enjoy your meal as you watch a traditional Tharu cultural stick dance and show.

Day 8: Chitwan – Kathmandu (B)

Put your eyes to the test on this morning’s bird-watching tour and challenge yourself to spot as many species as you can. Afterwards, the group makes the return drive to Kathmandu. The trip takes about five hours and the evening is yours as leisure upon arriving back in the Nepalese capital.

Day 9: Kathmandu – Bhaktapur – Kathmandu (B, D)

Head out on a morning excursion to Bhaktapur to see its Durbar Square. The square is recognised for its heritage landmarks and monuments, many of which document the ancient kingdoms and former rulers that used to preside over the area. The legacy of Bhaktapur is rich and varied, and you might even spot bullet holes in the walls of some of the old royal palaces. There is a delicious farewell dinner tonight, celebrating your final night in Nepal. It is served in a hotel known for its exceptional Nepalese cuisine, and there is also a cultural dance performance. 

Day 10: Kathmandu – airplane-takeoff– Australia  (B)

A transfer picks you up at the necessary time and takes you to the airport for you to board your return flight to Australia.

Day 11: Australia    

Arrive home today.
