Day 01: On the first day, our representative will pick you up from Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu upon your arrival and transfer you to the hotel, where a well decorated room (as per your request) suitable for the first conjugal night in Nepal awaits you. Depending on your arrival time, we take you to a sightseeing around Kathmandu after you take some rest and become fresh at the hotel.
Day 02: You will spend your second day in Kathmandu observing its historic and religious places. Although, the downtown Kathmandu is not so great due to the heavy traffic, haphazard infrastructure and disorganised system, there are some great places within the valley which are very beautiful and have religious/historic value. Some of the places you will visit are Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, the Swayambhunath temple (also known as Monkey temple), and Bouddhanath Stupa among others. (As per the availability of your time your stay in Kathmandu can be extended. There are many other good places to see, a visit in the outskirts of Kathmandu is very enriching in terms of natural beauty and the hospitality of the people).
Day 03: On the third day, you check out from the Hotel and head towards a picturesque city of Pokhara in the west of Kathmandu. We set out of Kathmandu on a tourist bus and travel to Pokhara, some 200 km west of Kathmandu. On the way, you can see very good landscape of terraced fields, hissing river and lush green forests. Upon reaching Pokhara, we check in at a hotel and take a walk in the beautiful city.
Day 04/05: We spend the fourth and the fifth day sightseeing around Pokhara. Pokhara is really a beautiful city with many lakes and caves. Like Kathmandu it is also a valley and has a much better landscape. We can see wonderful views of great mountains including Mount Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Annapurna and Dhaulagiri from here. There is a famous lake called lake Phewa in the heart of Pokhara. We will spend afternoon boating and swimming at the Phewa lake. On a serene morning, we can see a beautiful image of Mount Machhpuchhre reflecting in the lake's water.
There is an adrenaline rushing gorge like structure called Davies Fall at the outlet of lake Phewa. Water from the lake Phewa goes to Seti river through this fall. You can hear water gushing down the earth, but cannot see its base. River Seti in itself is another wonder of Pokhara. The river flows from inside the earth. From above you see a deep canal like structure and hear the gush of flowing water, but cannot see it.
Mahendra Cave, in the northern part of Pokhara, is another adrenaline rushing structure. It's a limestone cave with lot of stalactites and stalagmites. You need to carry a flashlight when you enter through the narrow opening of the cave. Generally, goose bumps appear on your body as you walk through the dark, narrow trail inside the earth. How far you can reach depends on you. People say, the cave connects to the base of Davies' fall at the other end.
If you can extend your stay in Pokhara by a few more days, you can visit Sharangkot, a hill station famous for its beautiful sunrise views and Lake Begnas and Lake Rupa in the outskirts of the valley. You can also choose to trek up to Ghandruk, a famous traditional Gurung village.
Day 06: Leaving behind the beautiful memories spent in Pokhara you leave for Terai, the southern plains of Nepal. A tourist bus takes you to Sauraha of Chitwan, a small touristy hamlet, just outside the famous Chitwan National Park (CNP). There are so many activities you can do in Chitwan including jungle safari, jungle walk and canoeing. After checking in at a riverside hotel and freshening up, we take a short walk along the trails of the jungle with a nature guide. We will spot the rare one-horned rhinos, elephants, deer, crocodile and many different kind of birds.
In the evening we take you to a cultural show, where local ethnic Tharu youths, show their traditional dances including the stick dance and the Mayur dance with utmost enthusiasm. Back to the hotel, we stay at the banks of the river and observe the jungle beyond the river as you take dinner.
Day 07: Today, you go inside Chitwan National Park riding on an elephant back. As you go deep inside the jungle you will see many animals in the wilderness. Rhinos, elephants, bear, deer and birds are common scene. Sometimes, you can also spot the rare Royal Bengal Tiger. Back from the elephant safari, you will take lunch at the hotel basking at the sun (depending on the season). In the afternoon, we will take you to a Tharu village nearby where you can observe their ethnic culture and enjoy their hospitality. A Tharu museum at the heart of the village portrays various things related to the rich Tharu culture. We will also take you to the only elephant breeding centre in Asia, where you can see young elephants playing with their mother.
Back at the hotel, we will organise a campfire with a barbecue (optional) for you in the evening, where you can together sing, dance and enjoy the final day of this trip.
Day 08: Return to Kathmandu
