Day 1

Friday. Welcome to Kathmandu and the start of your holiday! You’ll be met and transferred to your hotel where you will receive a welcome drink and a briefing about your trip.
Overnight: Kathmandu

Day 2

Nepal's capital Kathmandu is a fascinating blend of old and new and the largest and most cosmopolitan city in Nepal. This morning we visit Bodhnath stupa, a beautiful Buddhist worship site with spinning prayer wheels and prostrating pilgrims. Our next stop is the ancient city of Bhaktapur, Nepal’s cultural gem which has maintained its traditional lifestyle and is famous for its pottery. We explore Bhaktapur’s beautiful Durbar Square and visit local families to see Ju Ju Dhau (yoghurt) being made and to try our hand at pottery making. Our final stop is Patan, the old Newari city with a historic Durbar Square. This evening enjoy dinner and a cultural Nepali dance performance.

Kathmandu – Chitwan. On day 3 we travel by road to Chitwan National Park, arriving in time for lunch. Hailed as one of Asia’s finest game parks, Chitwan is home to elephants and rhinos, sloth bears and striped hyenas. The remains of day 3 and the whole of day 4 allows free time for you to choose from the various optional activities available in Chitwan National Park.

Day 5

Chitwan National Park – Pokhara. Today we take travel on to scenic Pokhara, gateway to the magnificent Annapurna Range, which consists of five mountains over 7200m and Machhapuchare Mountain at 7000m. The local people believe that Machhapuchare is sacred to the god Shiva and therefore is off limits to climbing. There’s time to relax this afternoon and perhaps take a stroll around the lakeside market.
Overnight: Pokhara  |  Breakfast

This morning we watch a beautiful sunrise at the hill top World Peace Pagoda which offers spectacular views of the Annapurna range.

We’ll also enjoy a rickshaw ride from Hanuman Dhoka to Thamel, through the bustling back streets of the city which is a great way to observe the everyday life of the locals.
