DETAILED DESCRIPTION

This luxury 8-day/7-night tour of Nepal begins in Kathmandu and takes an in-depth look at Nepali history in Kathmandu Valley and Patan City. From there, you'll delve deeper into the past with a visit to the former capital of Bhaktapur with its beautifully-preserved examples of woodwork, metalwork and stone art. On this trip, you'll also visit the Royal Chitwan National Park, home to more than 700 species of animals, including elephants, Bengal tigers and rhino.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Kathmandu

You journey begins in Kathmandu, where you'll be greeted at Tribhuvan International Airport by a driver, and chauffeur-driven to your hotel. Kathmandu's hotels are some of the best in Nepal, offering luxurious amenities and warm hospitality; we recommend the heritage-style Dwarika's Hotel, the Hyatt Regency Kathmandu and the Hotel Yak and Yeti. In the evening, you'll be briefed about your upcoming tour.

DAY 2: Kathmandu

Today you'll enjoy a full-day guided sightseeing tour in and around Kathmandu Valley. You'll see many interesting historic landmarks today, including Pashupatinath Temple – a Hindu temple devoted to Shiva, the stunning Boudhanath Buddhist stupa, and the ancient Buddhist complex Swayambhunath, one of the oldest religious sites in Nepal. You'll also be taken to see various sights around Kathmandu city before making your way back to your luxury hotel.

DAY 3: Patan City

Your excursions today will take you to Dakshinkali Temple, Shekha Narayan Temple, and Chovar Temple, all important religious sites. In the afternoon, you'll be guided around Patan City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a history that stretches back to the third century BC. Also known as Lalitpur, this ancient city contains many beautiful monuments, including the stone temple of Lord Krishna and Tushahity, the Royal Bath. After exploring Patan, you'll visit a Tibetan Refugee camp to watch woodcarving and carpet-weaving before returning to your hotel in Kathmandu.

DAY 4: Dhulikhel

Today you'll visit Bhaktapur, the former capital of Nepal and another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bhaktapur has remarkable examples of wood, stone and metal artwork, plus ornate ancient temples and perfectly preserved traditional architecture. Sites of note here include the intricately-carved Golden Gate and the Palace with Fifty-Five Windows. On your way to Dhulikhel, 26 miles from Kathmandu, you'll pass through beautiful landscapes of terraced rice fields and tiny villages. You'll spend tonight in a comfortable hotel in Dhulikhel.

DAY 5: Chitwan

Get an early start today, as you'll be heading off to Charaudi after breakfast. Here's where you'll start a thrilling half-day white water rafting trip on the Trishuli River. After stopping for lunch, you'll enjoy a scenic three-hour drive to Royal Chitwan National Park, where you'll have the chance to spot fauna - more than 700 animal species call the park home. Stay overnight at your resort in Chitwan – we recommend both the luxurious Tiger Tops Tented Camp and the cosy Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge, both wilderness retreats that allow guests to settle into a laidback pace.

DAY 6: Royal Chitwan National Park

Today you'll enjoy full day of jungle activities inside yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site – Royal Chitwan National Park. You can embark upon an elephant-top safari, where you can spot local fauna such as rhino, sambal deer and rhesus monkeys, or enjoy a spot of leisurely canoeing, or a walking wildlife safari with bird-watching. Chitwan National Park is also home to Bengal tigers, leopards, jungle cats and leopard cats, though they tend to be extremely elusive. In the evening, return to your accommodation in Chitwan and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle.

DAY 7: Kathmandu

Bid adieu to Chitwan today as you enjoy the scenic drive back to Kathmandu. In the evening you'll share a farewell dinner at a local restaurant, where you can sample authentic Nepali cuisine. Tonight, you'll spend your last night in Kathmandu, checking into one of the city's best hotels. The Hotel Yak and Yeti is a luxurious option, with a pool and 24-hour butler service, Dwarika's Hotel is a great example of a boutique stay with heritage charm, and the Hyatt Regency Kathmandu offers world-class amenities on 37 acres of landscaped grounds.

DAY 8: Depart

After checking out of your luxury hotel in Kathmandu, you'll be drive to the airport for your onward flight.
