Let us introduce you to Nepal, while taking care of every detail of your trip. Your journey begins with a stay at a retreat in the Himalayas, in the old trading town of Dhulikhel. From this sumptuous base, you’ll bear witness to the incredible beauty of a Himalayan sunset and explore the extraordinary World Heritage Site of Bhaktapur City.

An overnight in one of Kathmandu City’s premier hotels provides an exhilarating change of scene and allows you to tour another World Heritage Site, the Pashupatinath Hindu Temple. Get a taste for Nepal‘s rich culinary tradition with dinner in one of the city’s finest restaurants.

You’ll then be flown out to an exclusive resort at the foot of the Himalayas. Feel the benefits of massage and guided yoga, up the tempo with scenic hikes, or visit a Tibetan village. You’ll also get to spend the night in the charming lakeside town of Pokhara.

Next up is the spectacular Chitwan National Park for an elephant-back safari and adventures such as a visit to an indigenous Tharu village and jungle hikes, before you return to Kathmandu. Experience Buddhist life with guided tour of Boudhanath Stupa temple and the World Heritage Sites of Swoyambhunath ‘the Monkey’ Temple and Patan, the city of fine arts.

Private tour of Bhaktapur and Pashupatinath Private tour of Bhaktapur and Pashupatinath

Today you will be taken through the Kathmandu Valley to explore two of the most incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Bhaktapur and Pashupatinath. Your first stop is Bhaktapur, one of the three ancient cities within the Kathmandu Valley. It is also known as Bhadgaun, meaning the city of devotees and is the home of true medieval art and architecture in the Valley. Lying fourteen kilometres east of Kathmandu city, Bhaktapur was founded in the 9th century and is shaped like a conch shell. Not only because of its famous carved peacock windows but also due to its museum, Bhaktapur is the centre of traditional Nepalese wood carving. Compared with other royal cities in Patan and Kathmandu, Bhaktapur is the most original and without a doubt the most historically authentic as it is literally a living museum where farmers dry their harvest, potters turn their wheel and people go about traditional life as they have done for years. You can explore and have lunch here overlooking a classic ancient town square before moving onto the main part of Kathmandu city to see Pashupatinath temple. One of the holiest temples in the Hindu religion, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva, one of the three main gods in Hinduism. Situated on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River, Pashupatinath is the main cremation site for Hindus in the Kathmandu Valley, with cremation ghats lining the Bagmati River below the temple. It is such an important pilgrimage site that any Hindu should visit it once in their life and there is a constant stream of sadhus coming and going from Nepal and India.
