This Nepal tour has special programs of rafting, trekking and hiking for your adventure. Sightseeing around Kathmandu valley’s cultural heritage sites is followed by rafting in Trishuli River. Then, the trip takes you to Pokhara, where you start trekking to Ghorepani. Thenafter, trekking to Poonhill and hiking to Ghandruk comes in our itinerary.

You’ll love everything you see on your way to Ghorepani, Poonhill and Ghandruk. After you admire the natural beauty of Ghandruk and break ice with the local Gurungs and their culture, it’s time to go back to Pokhara again, where you’ll get to view an amazing sunrise in Sarangkot. The tour now takes you to Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha. You’ll then go to Chitwan for having a close experience with wildlife. The trip’s destination is back to Kathmandu valley as we visit Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Pharping, and Chobhar.

After all these, guided sightseeing at Bungmati, Khokana and Patan City will almost bid adieu to this tour as you’ll have one leisure day before departures. How amazing this all-Nepal tour is! Certainly worth every minute of each of 20 days you spent in this wonderland that we call Nepal.
