The four best places to visit in Nepal to get a sense of the country’s culture and environment are Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini and Chitwan. So we take you to these cities and to visit the landmarks within them in this fun-filled tour perfect for a vacation with family or friends. From national parks to lakes and from temples to monasteries – you will see them all.
We will receive you as you land into Kathmandu and take you to your hotel. You will begin exploring Kathmandu from the first day itself as we will take you on a tour of Kathmandu – a city which is a melting pot of ancient traditions and modern sensibilities. Our final destination for the day will be the Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple. This Buddhist monastery that sits on a hilltop has a peaceful atmosphere and provides panoramic views of the Kathmandu Valley.
We ride to the famous tourist town of Pokhara in a tourist bus. It is a seven hour trip through serpentine roads carved into the hills with stops for lunch and snacks in villages along the way. At Pokhara, the lakeside area offers an amazing nightlife to relax you after the long drive here.
It takes about six hours to reach Lumbini which lies southwest from Pokhara in a tourist vehicle. As you know, Lumbini is the birthplace of Lord Buddha and Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims come here from all over the world.
The first half of the day will be spent sightseeing in Lumbini. The atmosphere here is peaceful and there are monasteries, temples and a museum to see here. After lunch, we will head east to Chitwan in a luxurious tourist bus. You will be treated with views of hills and forests throughout the five to six hours’ journey to Chitwan National Park. We will stay in a jungle resort inside the national park.
There are so many fun activities in Chitwan National Park that one day is not enough. Elephant safari, jeep safari, watching wildlife, canoeing, mixing with indigenous people of the jungle – the options are so many that you will be spoilt for choice.
As one day is not enough, engage in some more fun activities before returning to Kathmandu. A tourist bus will take us to Kathmandu in five to six hours. Mountain Kick will host a farewell dinner in the evening to end your great Nepali vacation.
We will drop you to the airport.
In Kathmandu, you will stay in a three-star hotel while you will be staying at standard guesthouses during your travel. There will be electricity, internet, laundry and hot showers in all of the places you stay and your room will have an attached washroom. You will have to share your room with a fellow traveller in our typical package. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 50.
All you need to bring for this tour is simply some comfortable clothes. You don’t need any special gear for touring around Nepal. Just make sure you have clothes according to the season you are arriving.

As one of the core guiding principles for Mountain Kick, we always give back to the mountain community in any way we can as a means of gratitude. The people who live in the Himalayas and share their homes with us deserve to have all their little problems fixed which seem very basic for outsiders but are commonplace in rural Nepal. The people lack proper access to healthcare, sanitation and education but a little effort from travellers goes on a long way to solve these issues. Mountain Kick has made it its corporate social responsibility to help improve the living standards of the local community. We make donations to their cause, organize social campaigns and programs and also have a few trips designed to mix a little volunteer work in your holiday.READ MORE ABOUT CSR
