Itinerary

Discover Kathmandu, Nepal’s legendary capital. Climb to Swayambhunath for fantastic views and visit the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to learn more about low-impact trekking in the region.
Discover the picturesque Nepalese countryside. Relish the stunning vista of sunrise over the Himalayas at the hillside retreat of Nagarkot. Descend through terraced farmlands to the medieval town of Bhaktapur via Changu Narayan, the oldest temple in Nepal.
Climb to the ancient citadel of Nuwakot for some breathtaking views of the valley below.
See Nepal from water-level while rafting along the Trisuli River. Camp overnight on the riverbank and fall asleep to the sounds of the wilderness.
Start the morning with some more rafting before transferring to Bandipur. This hilltop village has been largely untouched by tourism and is an excellent opportunity to experience Newari village life.
Once part of the trade route between India and Tibet, Pokhara lies in the shadow of the Annapurna Range. Prepare for the trek ahead with a ramble up to World Peace Pagoda or learn about Nepal’s ethnic history at the Pokhara Museum.
Take roads less travelled on a hike through the remote Siklis area. Walk along the Mardi Khola River before crossing terraced fields and alpine forests to Tara Top - the 180-degree panoramic views of the ranges are breathtaking.
Follow a small stream down through the Pokhara Valley before transferring back to town. Unwind in one of the many lakeside cafes, take a boat ride across the lake or pick up some colourful Nepalese or Tibetan trinkets in the Old Bazaar.
This incredible adventure comes full circle back in Nepal’s exciting capital, Kathmandu.
