Lumbini, birthplace of the Buddha, has been an important centre of pilgrimage for Buddhists and Hindus for 2 500 years. It lies in the Terai region of southern Nepal, not far from the famed Chitwan National Game Reserve. Our nine day tour will showcase these World Heritage landmarks and includes visits to rural Bandipur and urban Pokhara south of the high Himalayas.
This Landmark Discovery tour offers travellers and families an exciting introduction to the country south of the High Himalaya – while including spectacular views of the ice giants. Explore our largest cities (which still have much to offer, despite recent earthquake damage); drive through rural community middle hill and lowland scenery before enjoying the thrill of a nature adventure in our premier Game Reserve.
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.
This short Budget tour will give you a brief introduction to “Nepal south of the Himalayan chain.” Explore the landmarks in two of our major cities. The road journey between them will introduce you to rural, agricultural, Nepal: its Middle Hill forested scenery and glimpses of the high Himalaya to the north.
