Kathmandu -Lumbini and Pokhara Tour

Duration: 8 Days

Nepal is the holy grail of mountains, but it is also the abode of gods and hence extremely rich in unique culture. If you were looking for an introduction to Nepal and its culture in a short duration,  Adventure Club Trek’s Kathmandu-Lumbini and Pokhara Tour-8 Days package do just that! We explore the various scattered cultural heritage of Nepal, many of which are UNESCO world heritage sites in these 8 days. 

From the meditating gods in medieval shrines in the busy Kathmandu to the birthplace of Buddha, Lumbini, Tansen which is a Newari town in the Dhaka ( Nepali fabric) capital Palpa and the lake city of Pokhara, this tour takes you nooks and corners of Nepal  We begin our tour from the Kathmandu valley visiting two of its three Durbar Squares, Kathmandu and Bhaktapur squares are medieval palace complexes featuring numerous temples and other structures. 

Walking along the premises of the Durbar Squares, one cannot help but admire the magnificent scriptures on the age-old wooden and stone architectures, the woodcraft and unique style of the buildings. 
The pagoda style temples and old houses with hand-crafted windows identify Nepal’s medieval architectural style. Indulge yourself in knowing the Buddhist culture better as you visit the Boudhanath and Swayambhunath Stupa.  Explore the premises of the Pashupatinath where you can also see Babaji (a person devoted to Lord Shiva), open cremations on the bank of Bagmati river and other Hindu rites and rituals. We depart from Kathmandu to Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha to explore the famous landmarks including the Sacred Garden and the Ashoka Pillar. 

While on our way to Pokhara, we stop at the ancient town of Tansen in Palpa.  The small town known for producing Dhaka ( uniquely patterned Nepali fabric) is filled with old palaces and houses. The spectacular views of the peaks in Mahabharat range and the hospitable people add more to the beauty of the place. Finally, we arrive at Pokhara, a city filled with natural wonders, where we visit famous landmarks including the Phewa Lake, Davis Fall, and Gupteshwor Cave among others.

Pre-Trip Meeting 

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
