Exotic Nepal Explore Tours - 08 Days

Swayambhunath also known as monkey temple is one of the most revered Buddhist sites in Nepal.

Iconized by the lofty Himalayan peaks, astounding topographical extremities, uncommon natural beauty, plethoric histo-cultural emblems and a harmonious blend of different ethnicities, Nepal emanates its sheer unique identity in the international arena.  Be it a nature lover, a gutsy adventurer or a solemn wanderer in the pursuit of inner peace and spiritual stimulation, Nepal is akin to a Shangrila for anybody longing for an unprecedented bliss. This tiny Himalayan terra firma has something of everything to offer the choosy and uncompromising adventure penchants; that’s the reason why it is regarded as one of the tourism heavyweights, despite its meager size. The “Exotic Nepal Tour” is a specially crafted package to familiarize you to this uniqueness and grandeur of Nepal. The trip circumferences the major tourist hotspots of Nepal viz.  Pokhara,Lumbini and the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu itself.

This eight days’ tour begins with an enticing exploration of Kathmandu valley. Antique temples, stupas and artistic palace squares are so vividly scattered within Kathmandu that at times, you might just reckon the city to be a massive museum of interesting heritage sites. Witnessing the sophisticated hotels and lavish shopping malls at one end and aged palaces, shrines and monuments at the other reveals how well the modernity and antiquity hang together in this flamboyant capital of Nepal. From Kathmandu, our trip steers towards another heavenly looking vale- Pokhara. Hemmed by the luscious mountain ranges, Pokhara is enviously blessed with fascinating landscapes and a chain of stunning lakes. The shadow of the Mt. Fishtail being reflected as a tail of a huge fish, on the flat countenance of “Fewa Lake”, is the kind of sight that woos anybody; not a surprise why there is a famous Nepali song attributed to this phenomenon that says, “Fewa taal ko aagan maa laelae, machhapuchhre chhaya”. Fewa is not the only catch; the Rupa and Begnas lakes are equally inviting. After sampling the very best of Pokhara, we cruise to the historical premises of Lumbini, a birth place of the icon of peace and benignancy- Lord Gautam Buddha. Nepalese are peace lovers and the reason is obvious, “Buddha was born in Nepal”! We explore this little town of great significance and then drive back to Kathmandu, which wraps up this awesome tour.
