A five-day golfing adventure through the Himalayas awaits, taking in some of Nepal’s most spectacular courses – as well as a bit of sightseeing along the way. You first touchdown in the capital, Kathmandu, before being whisked off to your resort just outside the city. The following day is your chance to hit the green, as well as visit some of Kathmandu’s finest cultural spots including Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath, one of the largest Buddhist monuments in the country. It’s then on to Pokhara via a short flight over the snow-capped mountains, with a full golf session booked at the stunning 'Himalayan Golf Course' that cuts into the steep valleys either side. Fly back to Kathmandu for more golfing in the Himalayan foothills back at Gokarna Forest Resort.

This itinerary is an example. It’s designed to inspire you and provide you with thoughtfully curated ideas. You can choose to do this exact itinerary or completely personalize it. All trips are 100% bespoke.

Highlights

• Golf Gorkana: David Mclay Kidd designed this course surrounded by the Himalayas, conveniently located near Kathmandu for easy access to Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath, one of the largest Buddhist monuments in the country.

• Himalayan Links: At a higher altitude is the "Himalayan Golf Course" of Pokhara, a course enclosed by towering canyon walls, gushing waterfalls, and the mountain peaks.

• Luxury in Kathmandu: After a long day on the greens, travelers bed down in Dwarika’s Hotel, the only luxury hotel in the capital of Kathmandu and a great base for seeing the city’s sights.

Day-by-Day

Day 1 Kathmandu

With the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas coming into view as you descend upon Kathmandu, touching down in the Nepalese capital can be an experience in itself. Meet with a tour representative upon arrival, who’ll help out with visa formalities and show you to your resort just outside the city. There’s a quick debrief on the golfing schedule for the next few days, leaving you plenty of time to relax in the afternoon/evening.

Day 2 Gokarna

This first full day in Nepal finds the perfect balance between golfing and sightseeing. Spend a morning session on Gokarna’s very own course, designed by David Mclay Kidd and surrounded by the snow-capped Himalayas forming a stunning backdrop. A dose of culture awaits in the afternoon, with the guided tour heading out to see the incredible 1,600-year-old Pashupatinath Temple, as well as the equally impressive Boudhanath, one of the largest Buddhist monuments in the country.

Kathmandu

Day 3 Pokhara

Depart the capital, heading to the airport after breakfast for an onwards flight to Pokhara. A session on the greens of ‘Himalayan Golf Course’ is scheduled for the afternoon, a spectacular course enclosed by towering canyon walls, gushing waterfalls and the sky-scraping peaks of the mountains in the distance. The course layout is challenging for all levels, and don’t forget to chill out with a drink at the clubhouse afterwards, perched 80 feet above the course at the top of the valley. Head back to Pokhara in the evening for an overnight stay.

Day 4 Kathmandu

Leave Pokhara behind after breakfast, making your way to the airport to catch a flight back to Kathmandu. The rest of the day is all yours to enjoy one final session of golf in the foothills of the Himalayas at the breathtaking Gokarna Forest Resort. Enjoy a farewell dinner before settling down for one last night in Nepal.
