Nepal

Overview

For many years, Nepal has attracted visitors who are drawn to the stunning Himalayan vistas, ancient temples and exotic wildlife. Its relatively small size allows for a varied tour, even for those who only have time for a short stay. Experience a breathtaking scenic flight past Mount Everest or Sagamartha as it is known locally, stroll through the busy Hindu and Buddhist temples in Kathmandu and observe rhino in Chitwan National Park. For those who enjoy walking, we can suggest gentle day treks starting from the lakeside town of Pokhara which is renowned for its views of the Fishtail Mountain. Kathmandu can be reached by daily flights from London and Manchester via Doha or can be combined with a tour of north India by flying to or from Delhi, Varanasi or Calcutta.

Kathmandu

In the heart of Nepal, tucked away in a valley lies Kathmandu. In many ways, life here has remained unchanged for centuries under the watchful eyes of the Boddnath Stupa which observes the daily crowds of worshippers who come to walk around its circumference. Although the city is noisier and busier than ever before, the Durbar Square is still impressive with its palaces and temples. The Swayambhunath Stupa and Pashupatinath Temple are key destinations for the country’s Buddhist and Hindu populations respectively but visitors are welcome to explore. For a glimpse into how life once was, visit Bhaktapur, a short drive away and watch as potters and weavers practise their crafts. The town of Patan is also close by and worth a half day tour.With two or three nights, you can really gain a taste for life here and start to appreciate the gentle nature of the Nepalese.

Chitwan National Park

Set in the southern region of Nepal where the climate is subtropical, Chitwan was designated a National Park in 1973 in order to protect the indigenous one horned rhino and Bengal tiger. There are many other mammals and over 400 species of birds. The park may be explored in a number of ways; on foot, by jeep, on elephant back and by river. Most guests spend two to three nights to enable them to experience at least some, if not all, of these options. The surrounding villages can also be visited between the early morning and mid-afternoon game drives.

Pokhara

Set on the shores of Lake Phewa and watched over by Fishtail Mountain and the Annapurna Range, Pokhara is a lovely place to visit for a few days to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. It can also be used as the starting point for treks of one day or for longer
overnight trips. Mountain biking and boating on the lake are two other popular pastimes. To reach Pokhara, you may drive or fly from Kathmandu or drive from Chitwan National Park.
