Trip Information

Our Photography Tour 13 days takes you to a beautiful photographic journey where you take pictures of all wonderful landscapes, heritage sites, diverse lifestyle and culture  in the most popular destinations of Nepal.

Discover the magic and mystery of vibrant Kathmandu – immerse yourself in the fascination throughout the colorful array of bustling streets, busy markets, rich historic cultural heritage, exquisite temples and religious sites. Take an early morning meandering drive to the hilltop of Nagarkot and Dhulikhel for a breathtaking sunrise view. It’s the perfect place to view many of the Himalayan giants such as Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Jugal, Rolwaling and Everest range from here. Hike to Shivapuri National Park just off the edge of the city, and explore the marvelous forest and hiking trails filled with diverse 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 sacred Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave to the International Mountain Museum, 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 the whole Palpa district is absolutely awe-inspiring. The major attractions of Tansen are 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 our photography tour is the amazing experience of the one-hour Everest mountain 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, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kanchenjunga and neighbouring peaks 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 vehicle. The accommodation conveniences will be at three star hotels, and can be customized as per your requirements. We are happy to help you tailor this photography tour for you. The added bonus, you will have ample opportunity to purchase authentic souvenirs, including carpets, handicrafts, carvings and Thangkas (traditional Tibetan Buddhist painting) during the trip.
