Travel to the three most happening tourist destinations in Nepal – the Kathmandu Valley, Pokhara, and Chitwan. Your tour has been packaged such that you get a fine share of nature, culture and fun. From the heritage sites of Kathmandu, to the jungle safaris of Chitwan and to the lakes of Pokhara, this tour guarantees fun at every step.
One of us will be there to pick you up as you land into Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu (4,600 feet). Your journey starts the next day and we will brief you on your big trip.
We will take you on a guided tour to three iconic monuments in Kathmandu which are included in the Unesco’s World Heritage List. Our first stop will be the Pashupatinath Temple, one of the biggest and holiest shrines in the world of Hindu god Shiva. We visit another 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 visit the Bhaktapur Durbar Square. The square is a former royal courtyard where there are several ancient temples and monuments to visit. The place is rich in culture and preserves the traditional way of living. 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.
The main reason for coming to Nagarkot is for viewing sunrise which, according to tourists, is an amazing sight. Nagarkot also offer best views of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest and the Annapurna range. We will head to Pokhara in the day and it takes about seven hours through serpentine roads in the hills to get there. 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.
We will take you to the World Peace Pagoda in the morning. It is a beautiful place to explore and see the city, the lake and the mountains. We will head down to lakeside for lunch and embark for further sightseeing in the city. We will visit the Tibetan Refugee Camp, the Gupteshwor Cave, and the Davis Fall this day.
We will wake up early to travel to Sarangkot just in time for sunrise. It is a short drive to the top of Sarangkot hill from lakeside and you will be treated one of the most beautiful scenes of rising sun from here along with a beautiful panoramic view of the Himalayas. Mount Annapurna, Mount Dhaulagiri, and Mount Manaslu can be seen ahead of you while Pokhara city and the Phewa Lake are visible below. Sarangkot is also a popular destination for paragliding enthusiasts.
We will leave Pokhara behind and head south to Chitwan in a luxurious tourist bus. You will be treated with views of hills and forests throughout the five to 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.
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.
You only visited three historical and religious monuments in Kathmandu and now is time for some more. There are more temples and former royal courtyards to see in the Valley which are all rich in culture and heritage.
We will take you very close to Mount Everest in an hour-long mountain flight.

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
