Nepal has a history rich in cultural and religious evolution and advancement. The testimonials of those periods survive in modern times through the monuments which have been well preserved for hundreds of years as national heritage. This travel package takes you on a tour of the most beautiful heritage sites in the country spread across several cities with a healthy dose of sightseeing and adventure to keep things interesting.
We will receive you at the Tribuwan International Airport as you land into Kathmandu. As you must be tired from your long flight, we will take you straight to your hotel.
This is the day for visiting some heritage sites. We visit Unesco World Heritage Site of Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the country. It is believed that the Stupa is a tomb of an incarnation of Lord Buddha.We then drive to Bhaktapur to visit the Changunarayan Temple, another 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. 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.
After waking up early for a glimpse of beautiful sunrise at Nagarkot, we head south to Chitwan National Park in a luxurious tourist bus. You will be treated with views of hills and forests throughout the seven hours’ journey to Chitwan. 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.
It takes five hours to reach Lumbini which lies west from Chitwan 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 atmosphere is peaceful and there are monasteries, temples and a museum to see here.
The first half of the day will be spent sightseeing in Lumbini. Then our tourist bus will take you to Palpa in about three hours. We will travel to upper regions of Palpa to the historic city of Tansen which has several temples and palaces to visit. You will also be treated with spectacular views of the Himalayas from here.
We will head to Pokhara and it takes a little less than four hours to reach there. Pokhara is the most beautiful city in Nepal and that is why tourists from all around the world come here. The lakeside area is a great place for tourists to hangout and the nightlife here is amazing.
There are plenty of places to visit in Pokhara like the Devi’s Falls, the Bat Cave, the World Peace Pagoda, the Phewa Lake, and many more. Pokhara is a great place to go shopping in the day and partying in the night.

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
