Best of Nepal Tour (Discover Nepal)

14 days discovering all aspects of Nepali life.

You will travel as part of a small group on this two week Nepal holiday, discovering all aspects of Nepali life - from its bustling cities to its bloom-filled valleys. 

Meeting your group in Kathmandu, you’ll have a two day locally-guided tour of the valley. You’ll visit Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath stupa and nearby Bhaktapur with its artisans, narrow alleyways, and community centric courtyards before heading to scenic Nagarkot overnight where you can wake up to watch the sunrise over the Himalayas. 

There is just time to head back to Kathamandu and Patan city to see some of the finest palaces and temples in the whole of Nepal before leaving city life behind for the wilds of the royal Chitwan national park.

In Chitwan, you'll have two days to explore, including a full day safari in the park which is one of the best places in Nepal for spotting rhinos and tigers in the wild. In the evenings there'll be time to relax and experience some local culture such as a Tharu Stick Dance demonstration. Leave some space on your memory card however because you're next destinations are Lumbini (the birth place of Buddha) and Pokhara, one of the most picturesque parts of Nepal. Here you’ll spend an afternoon boating on beautiful lake Phewa, soaking in the magnificent reflections of Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Peak) and the Annapurna range. 

No trip to Nepal would be complete without putting on the walking boots and heading out on a trek and so we've included five whole days of trekking, staying in well-equipped lodges along the way. The trails are breathtakingly scenic, passing through rhododendron forests, sub-tropical valleys, and charming villages inhabited by the local Gurung and Magars people. If timings allow, you will also get to see the sunrise from Poon Hill. A mecca for photographers and one of Nepal's most famous view points, it offers panoramic vistas of the Himalayas and is not to be missed.

All Nepal Tour

I have always dreamed about travelling to Nepal. Being a single traveller I appreciated the help and support that the drivers and tour guides gave me in my journey to make this dream a reality. After living in Turkey for four years, and stuggling to learn Turkish, it was a relief to find out that both the driver and tour guide spoke excellant english. I grew to admire the driver's skill on mountain roads full of heavy truck traffic, and the amazing general knowledge of the tour guides.Some of the special memories that will always stay with me include hearing the sound of the buddhist mantra being played whilest viewing the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal, enjoying the peacefulness in the Lumbini Gardens and walking through villages early in the morning.
 
The view of Mt Everest eluded me for most of my trip but I was fortunate enough to catch a glimse of the famous mountain as the plane flew out of Katmandu. Now that I am back in Istanbul teaching young children, I share my special memories of Nepal with others through listening to the beautiful Nepalise music and looking at a picture book of Nepal. It was a great holiday and one not to be missed.
