Cultural Heritage Tour of Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, Chitwan and Dhulikhel - 08 Days

Bhaktapur Durbar Square, an ancient palatial culture in the historic city of Bhaktapur, Nepal, reflecting some incredible master pieces of ancient Newari arts and craftsmanship.

This exclusive cultural heritage tour encapsulates the five major cities of Nepal, viz. Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, Dhulikhel and Chitwan, showcasing their exquisite heritage sites, cultural marvels and soothing panorama.  

Kathmandu, is not a just a funky and bustling capital of Nepal, but also an epitome of antiquity, as it is literally hemmed by plethora of iconic histo-cultural and religious sites. Patan on the other hand, is often referred as the monumental city, attributed to its unique masterpieces of medieval architectures.  With fascinating palatial display of the medieval era, Bhaktapur is another heritage town, dominantly dwelt by the people of “Newari” community. Once an important trading center in the ancient commercial route, linking Nepal with Tibet, the town of Dhulikhel, often referred as the “gateway to Tibet”, offers jaw-dropping panorama of some of the tallest mountains in the world. Chitwan, a lively city just about four hours’ drive away from Kathmandu, is iconized by a massive stretch of a conservation area known as the “Chitwan National Park”.  

If you are not one of those arduous Himalayan trekkers, and prefer to just cruise around sampling the antiquity of the medieval cities, this trip is akin to a diamond of the first water for you. The tour begins from Kathmandu with an informative heritage sightseeing, as you drive about in a comfy car, exploring an array of religious and cultural marvels in the adjoining cities of Patan and Bhaktapur. We like mixing up stuffs, because mixing avoids monotony. So, if you are a little overdone with the heritage thing, let’s give it a break and try out something different. How about a jungle safari? Yes, we will be taking you to the dense jungles of Chitwan, where you can get a bit wild while being in the wilds! Elephant safari, canoeing, bird watching and the indigenous cultural show……we bet, nothing as such would you ever have experienced even on your most memorable holidays till date! Towards the end of the trip, we find ourselves catapulted to the picturesque and tranquil premises of Dhulikhel. Eventually, relishing the some of the most flabbergasting mountain views from Dhulikhel, our trip wraps up with a drive back to Kathmandu.
