About Your Trip

Spot rare wildlife and embrace serene Himalayan landscapes on this 11-day Nepalese adventure. Ride a rickshaw through the capital, Kathmandu, and visit nearby Kirtipur before heading north to Nuwakot – a village known for its seven-storey palace complex. Continue west to Sarangkot, where you’ll be treated to spectacular views of the Annapurna Range, and boat across Phewa Lake in Pokhara. Learn how to make traditional momo dumplings, go white-water rafting on the Seti River, and search for Bengal tigers and rhinos in the Chitwan National Park. Finally, return to Kathmandu and wrap up your trip with a farewell dinner.
