Trip Information

This luxury tour has been designed to facilitate photographing (and experiencing!) your journey in the most popular destinations that Nepal is famous for.

Discover the magic and mystery of Kathmandu – immerse yourself in the fascination throughout the colorful array of bustling streets, busy markets, rich historic heritage, exquisite temples and religious sites. Take an early morning meandering drive to the hilltop of Nagarkot and Dhulikhel for a breathtaking sunrise. It’s the perfect place to view many of the Himalayan greats such as Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Gauri Shanker as well as Mount Everest; we believe it’s the ideal way to begin your day. Hike to Shivapuri National Park just off the edge of the city, and explore the marvelous forest and hiking trails filled with flora and fauna.

In Pokhara, the delightful scenic lakeside town with the spectacular backdrop of Machhapuchhre rising behind it all creates an ambiance of peace and magic. Pokhara is nestled in a tranquil valley and sports a tropical feel to it, a fact well appreciated by the beautiful diversity of flowers that bloom throughout. There are innumerable must-see places to discover, from the Gupteshower sacred Caves to the historical Memorial Museum dedicated to the famous Gurkha Warriors, Sarangkot hill and the World Peace Pagoda.

Tansen, the seat of Sen Kingdom that roved over the region for 300 years, is located approximately 330 kms away from Kathmandu. It is a typical and historical Nepali town with numerous fairs and festivals, religious and cultural events. The scenic beauty of whole Palpa district is absolutely awe-inspiring. The major attractions of Tansen are Srinagar hill, Tansen bazaar, the centuries-old Palace and Ranighat. Though it’s a small town, Tansen is filled with natural, historical and traditional treasures.

Another highlight of the tour is the amazing experience of the one-hour Everest flight that takes you within the camera range of some of the highest peaks in the world, and cruising this close to the awe-inspiring massifs of rock and ice is an out-of-this world experience. This scenic Everest flight offers the closest possible aerial views of Mt Everest, Kanchenjunga along with others along the Tibetan border.

During the course of this trip, you will have a professional guide at your disposal, and travel on a deluxe air-conditioned coach. All accommodation during the tour will be at three- or four-star hotels and resorts. You will have ample opportunity to purchase authentic souvenirs, including carpets, handicrafts, carvings and Thankas (traditional painting).
