We will be there to receive you at the airport as you land into Kathmandu and take you to your hotel.
This day is for looking around Kathmandu. Like you may have seen in pictures, Kathmandu is a melting pot of tradition and modernity where you will see western-style hangouts nestling among ancient temples and palaces. There are seven World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu so you will encounter culture aplenty. In the evening, we will take a short drive to Nagarkot Hill Station. The weather and the scenic beauty of the place make Nagarkot the most popular hill surrounding the Kathmandu Valley.
Bhaktapur is downhill from Nagarkot so it is an easy walk for a couple of hours. In Bhaktapur, we will visit the Changunarayan Temple, a World Heritage Site. The temple is located on top of a hill and surrounded by a forest and is believed to be the oldest temple in Nepal. We will return to Kathmandu in the evening.
A holiday is incomplete without a little bit of thrill. Here we have plenty of it as we go rafting in the Trishuli River. A three-hour drive takes us to Charaundi where the rafting begins. With help from our guides and trainers, you will raft from Charaundi to Kurintar with grade 2 and 3 rapids. We will camp overnight on the river bank.
We have another day for rafting in the Trishuli River. Later in the day, we will take you to Chitwan in a tourist bus. It is approximately a one to two hour drive with beautiful scenes of the hills throughout the way to keep you entertained. We will stay in a 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.
We will leave Chitwan behind and head northwest to Pokhara in a luxurious tourist bus. You will be treated with views of hills and forests throughout the approximately seven hours’ journey to Pokhara. The lakeside area is perfect to chill out if you are tired from your long drive here.
Pokhara is a beautiful city and there are so many natural and man-made locations to visit. We will take you on a guided tour of the Bindabashani Temple,Old Pokhara City, Seti river gorges, Gorkha Museum, the Phewa Lake and the Barahi temple. The lakeside area is perfect for hanging out after sunset.
Our tourist bus will take you back to Kathmandu in about seven hours. The view outside the window is very beautiful as we pass through rivers, hills and towns along serpentine roads all the way through to Kathmandu. We will have lunch somewhere along the way.

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
