This package offers you some wonderful impressions of the Himalayas during a multi-day hike, an Asian jungle safari in Chitwan National Park, a mountain flight towards Mount Everest and some city trips filled with culture and tradition.
In Kathmandu we visit Boudhanath Stupa an Pashupatinath. Boudhanath is the largest stupa in Nepal and the holiest Tibetan Buddhist temple outside Tibet. It is the center of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu and rich in Buddhist symbolism. Pashupatinath Temple, with its astonishing architectural beauty, stands as a symbol of faith, religion, culture and tradition. Thousands of Hindus pilgrims from all over the world come to pay homage to this temple, which is also known as ‘The Temple of Living Beings’.
Bhaktapur is a quite city in Kathmandu valley, Unesco World Heritage and famous for its pottery and woodcarving.
Pokhara is a beautiful city to relax after the trek, perfectly located with a view at the mountains (Annapurna region) and Lake Fewa. There are cozy cafes and restaurants, and the possibility to join a boat trip or get a massage.
The mountain-trek in this journey is a short and rather light one, which gives you a very nice impression of the Himalayas. You will pass through typical villages, past rice fields on farm terraces, rhododendron forests and higher uphill through rocky areas where it might snow. The sunrise on Poon Hill is the highlight of this trek, where you will get a fantastic view of the highest peaks under a red glow.
This trek is easily achievable with children (every day’s distance can be covered at a slower pace if needed).
You are never far away from local villages which means that an extra porter or horse can be arranged in case of problems.
The Chitwan Jungle experience is a 3 days trip to the southern region of Nepal. This national park at the border with India provides protection for the endangered Bengal tiger, rhinos, crocodiles, bears, snakes, deer, countless species of birds, etc. You can explore this natural beauty from the back of an elephant, from a wooden canoe or during a walk with a nature guide.
In Dadhikot you will stay in our own bed&breakfast at the countryside, far away from tourism, very quiet situated between the rice fields, with a view of the capital in the distance and the Himalayas at the horizon.
The mountain flight is a flight of about an hour in a small plane (16 to 20 pers.). The flight goes towards the Everest region where you can set eyes on the astonishing Himalayas.
