DETAILED DECRIPTION

Known for its time-honored culture and pristine, panoramic views, Nepal is a unique combination of vibrant population and remote landscapes. While its larger cities provide endless opportunity for any visitor, the quaint villages scattered abundantly throughout the omnipresent mountains are indeed the most intriguing elements in this effervescent landscape. Begin your journey with an exploration of colorful Kathmandu. Then, continue on foot into the untouched mountains for an adventure unlike any other.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Kathmandu

Arrive right among the breathtaking, snow-capped mountains of Kathmandu, Nepal. After landing amidst endless natural beauty, greet your driver and allow yourself to be swept away by the tranquil grace of the panoramic views as he escorts you to your hotel. We recommend spending a beautiful night in the charmingly elegant Dwarika’s Hotel.

DAY 2: Kathmandu

Enjoy a delicious breakfast before taking to the city’s historic streets to explore the UNESCO-designated Durbar Square, a cornerstone of cultural Nepal that allows any visitor to feel like the royalty for which the elaborate architecture of this square was once reserved.

Finally, retire to your hotel for a relaxing evening of local food and drink.

Return to the mountainous trail and continue your incredible journey through the untouched, sub-tropical village of Patlekhet. Enjoy a mid-day shopping break in Pothana, a village popular among Tibetan traders offering handmade goods. After reaching the beautiful Basanta Lodge, enjoy a delightful lunch overlooking the Annapurnas. After, indulge in a guided exploration of the surrounding village of Dhampus before retiring to ta guest house for the night.
