Nepal is emerging more and more as a cultural destination, and rightly so! This Himalayan paradise not only hosts some of the world’s tallest mountains but also some of the world’s unique cultures.
The land of Living Goddess Kumari, abode of Lord Shiva, birthplace of Gautam Buddha, home to 123 different languages, 131 different ethnic groups, temples and stupas and most of all house to people who believe in ‘’AthitiDevoBhaba’’ (theguest is equal to god), Nepal is truly culturally diverse.
Nepal Explore Tour-15 days offers you an opportunity to visit the major attractions of the country in a short span. From exploring the World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu Valley to getting to observe the sunrise and sunset over the Himalayas from three different locations, this package gives you the most real introduction to Nepal.
Surprise your taste buds with local cuisines and get to know more about the origin of different religions and cultures of the country! We start off from the capital city itself, visiting famous landmarks including the three Durbar Squares. As we stroll the streets of Kathmandu, you will witness the local lifestyle. Overnight stay at Nagarkot where the next day starts with a spectacular view of the sunrise over the Himalayas is the best way to start a morning.
After having explored Kathmandu, we travel to Chitwan to enjoy sights of rare one-horned rhino, Bengal tigers and sloth bears among other wild animals. Jungle walks, elephant safari and canoeing are some of the activities we will indulge in during our stay in Chitwan.
Next, we explore the birthplace of Lord Buddha and other landmarks in Lumbini followed by a short visit of the ancient town of Tansen, famous for its rich heritage and production of Dhaka (handmade and uniquely patterned Nepali fabric).
In Pokhara, we visit different natural wonders such as the Phewa Lake, Davis Fall, and Gupteshwor Cave among others. We then leave for a short trek to Ghorepani in the Annapurna Region. The uphill climb to Poon Hill rewards us with a mesmerizing view of the sunrise over the Fishtail, Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, and other surrounding peaks. We then descend to Ghandruk, a typical village of Gurung people and a home stay destination.
By the end of the tour, you’d be familiar with the history of Kathmandu valley, would have visited the birthplace of Gautam Buddha in the Southern Plains of the country, trekked to the Annapurna region, toured Pokhara, seen Nepal’s wildlife up close and explored the ancient craft of handlooms.
Adventure Club Trek also offers Kathmandu Cultural Heritage Tour-2 Days, Kathmandu-Lumbini and Pokhara Tour-8 Days, and Kathmandu and Pokhara Tour-7 Days.
