Nepal Classical Round Trip

Introduction

Nepal is a worthwhile destination, not only for adventurers and hardcore trekkers, but also for visitors who want to experience an outstanding culture and landscape, without sacrificing a certain comfort. Our classical Nepal journey begins in Kathmandu, which lies at an altitude of only 1,300 meters above sea level. Here in the Kathmandu Valley you will visit several historic towns, temples and shrines.

Then a domestic flight takes you to Pokhara at 900 meters altitude, and you enjoy with a little luck with the weather, the fantastic views of the Annapurna mountain range, you take a scenic boat ride, and visit various holy sites and places of pilgrimage.

Finally, you will experience on foot, by boat and on elephant back, animals in the wild in the subtropical Chitwan National Park. You will get a comprehensive insight into the jungle world of the park, which is located in the south of the country. The park provides habitat for 400 species of birds, the rare Indian rhinoceros, bears, leopards, wild boars, crocodiles and antelopes.
Before you travel back to Kathmandu you visit Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha. Here you immerse yourself  into the world of Buddhist monasteries from all around the globe.

You will be accompanied by experienced, local tour guides and drivers with well maintained, comfortable vehicles. We’ll make suggestions for hotels and program complements in accordance with your budget, your travel time window and your wishes. Our network of local contacts allows you to experience this fascinating Himalayan state up close and without any travel stress.
