Nepal is not just about dramatic mountains and monasteries. Its allure and mystique also lie in traveling through its beautiful valleys, trekking up the hills and jungles, bird watching, a day at its wellness villages and losing yourself to the peace and quiet of nature. Nepal as a tourist destination is the most sought-after place for trekkers and bikers from around the world, who come here to experience the mountains and the green valleys, the beautiful sunrise, the lakes and gorges and even the amazing wildlife. Our Nepal holiday takes you to Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. At Kathmandu’s Durbar Square get a glimpse of the living goddess. The square, listed as one of the eight Cultural World Heritage sites by UNESCO, is a cluster of ancient temples, palaces, courtyards and streets that date back to the 12th and 18th centuries. Nepal is officially a Hindu state, but it also has a rich Buddhist culture, so enjoy the temples and the stupas at Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Swayambhunath. Take some time out in the afternoons to try your hand at some thangka painting at the old Tibetan Thangka painting schools in Kathmandu. Or you can also experience sound therapy with the Tibetan singing bowls at the Kathmandu Center of Healing.
Pokhara with its pristine Phewa Lake, the magnificent Machhapuchchhre or Fish Tail Mountain, the vanishing river Seti, and its many caves are a tourist’s delight. At the Royal Chitwan National Park, get to stay at a forest lodge and travel on the back of an elephant to see the one-horned Asiatic rhino
