Why you'll love this trip
  • Beginning and ending in Kathmandu, there's ample time to discover the capital's staggeringly rich cultural and artistic heritage.
  • Soak up wild surroundings during a two-night Feature Stay in a stylish and elegant resort on the border of Chitwan National Park, where you’ll be treated to a fabulous outdoor dinner beneath a sky full of stars.
  • Get an intimate look at Nepali culture and cuisine during an unforgettable Exclusive Experience; a cooking class with the Seven Women, a social enterprise helping disadvantaged women in Nepal.
  • Witness world-class mountain scenery during a breathtaking Mount Everest flight and a picturesque hike through the inspiring landscapes of Pokhara.
  • Pay a visit to a Tibetan community during an Exclusive Experience where you’ll learn about local life, enjoy a traditional cooking demonstration and sit down together for lunch.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Nepali infrastructure is still returning to normal after the 2015 earthquake, so some delays are inevitable. Embracing the slow pace and meditative atmosphere will go a long way toward your enjoyment of this beautiful country.
  • The drive from Pokhara to Chitwan is on very windy roads as you climb up and down mountains, be prepared for a lot of corners and don't forget to buckle up.
  • A moderate fitness level is required for the hike in Pokhara and walks in Chitwan National Park. This trip does not go to high altitude, so acclimatising will be relatively easy.

Our guide Subash was brilliant, friendly and approachable and able to deal with all the surprises that happened during our trip. Nepal is beautiful and should be explored thoroughly for its charm and ruggedness. The locals are truly fabulous.

We had a wonderful time. I believe it all happened with the complete leadership and knowledge of Nabin. Throughout the whole trip he was upbeat and positive no matter when ,or where . I appreciate him being a leader , like a son To elder people and very considerate and respectful towards others. When we decide to come back to Nepal, hopefully we have him again or someone that could fill his shoes. Thank you Nabin.
