This short tour is designed as a “first taste” of Nepal: showcasing the cultural landmarks in two cities and an 80km landscape panorama of the Himalayan giants north of Pokhara.

Despite the devastation caused by the recent earthquakes in Kathmandu, we still have much to offer that will show you the richness of our architectural, spiritual and cultural history. We have been shaken by the recent events, but the spirit, warmth and friendliness of our welcome remains, everywhere, sincere. Enjoy our cuisine and revel in the diversity of our ethnic, linguistic and spiritual diversity.

Be awed by the ‘chaotic nature’ of the multi-layered traffic on our roads (people, hand and motor vehicles – and animals) all vying for the limited space – but with patience and acceptance.

Spend a day visiting five of the Kathmandu Valley’s World Heritage Sites: Swayambhunath (the “monkey temple”); the city’s historical Durbar Square with ancient temples, unique art and architecture; Patan’s Durbar Square; the Hindu temple Pashupatinath and Bouddhanath, the world’s largest stupa.

 Take an early morning flight along the Himalayan chain (sit on the right of the plane) to the holiday playground of Pokhara. The city nestles between lovely Lake Phewa and the 50km Annapurna Range to the north.

Visit the main sites in and around the city; Nepal’s only Mountain Museum; the Tibetan Refugee Centre with displays of Tibetan crafts including Buddhist icons and carpets. Watch sunset from the Peace Pagoda on the lake and enjoy a panoramic Himalayan sunrise from the hill village of Sarangkot (showcasing three of the world’s fourteen 8 000m peaks).
