A vacation that only dreams are made off…
This is a geographical combo of nature in all its diversity that can only be found in Nepal where you discover temples and incense laden shrines as old as the mountains in the three historical once-upon-a-time bitterly feuding kingdoms of vast Nepal. This tour will awaken your senses of a living history. This trip takes you on a mystical wonder tour where the past continues to alive on in the present, where cultures of yore still exist to this day ingrained into a people by warring kings of a past lineage who created religious practices laced with superstition to convince their subjects and is strictly followed to this day. Included in the tour is the ancient city of Bhaktapur, the medieval Hindu temple and cremation ghats at Pashupatinath and the massive Buddhist stupa at Boudhnath, said to be one of the biggest in the world. The tour also covers captivating temples at Patan Durbar Square and Swayambunath, familiarly known as the ‘monkey temple’ physically placed on a small hilltop from where the grandstand views of the Kathmandu valley is a masterpiece to behold…
Added to this we drive into Nepal’s thrilling wildlife at the Chitwan National park. We will get to see the enormous one-horned rhino, light-footed deer, and an elephant breeding stable and if you are lucky, maybe even the subtle tiger napping in the shade.
After this trip in the wild, we will drive to Pokhara – ‘city of lakes’ through a lush, green highway where from the windows of your vehicle, our curious eyes will wander towards snow laden mountain ranges and as we cruise along, we cruise across lush meadows and vibrant colorful villages that tell us a lot of how the local folks live their lives in Nepal’s rural settings where over 60 percent of the population of the country do farming as a means of survival; till we drive into Pokhara, a beautiful, attractive lake town that displays the naturalness of nature by the grandiose peaks that are far but yet seem so near, fresh water lakes and dancing boats to give us excitement and good feelings of which a holiday should be made off. This amazing combo venture would be ideally enjoyed with the family and loved ones for the lovely landscapes it offers in the laps of some of the highest mountains in the world…so much to talk about when we return home with sweet memories never to be forgotten…
