This trip itself an opportunity to explore temples and shrines of historical and archaeological interests in the medieval towns of Kathmandu valley where you will view sights that will take you back almost 300 years in time, where feudalism ruled the day until a single man called Prithvi Narayan Shah thought differently and unified a whole nation; that began a lineage of kings till present day Nepal. Added to this will be a blitz into Nepal’s exotic wildlife at the Chitwan National park. You will get to see the massive one-horned rhino, light-footed deer, an elephant breeding centre and the elusive tiger napping in the shade.

After this trip in the wild, you will drive to Pokhara through a lush, green highway where from the windows of your vehicle, your eyes will behold snowy mountain landscapes and in the course of your drive, you will pass through little hamlets and villages on the way that will give you some deep insights into Nepal’s rural lifestyles; till you finally reach Pokhara, a beautiful scenic lake town where nature is amplified with the views of majestic peaks almost at touching distance, clean water lakes with boating and canoeing thrills at your service.
