Classic Nepal Tour

Pokhara-Tansen-Lumbini- Chitwan –Kathmandu
Extremely scenic overland tour, highly recommended.

Classic Nepal Tour This is yet another highly recommended classic tour offering varities of experiences in a single tour.

Starting with Kathmandu, we visit medieval temples and monuments and the busy and colourful local markets.In Pokhara we enjoy the serene lakes, green hills and the stunningly beautiful Himalayan panorama. We also visit the waterfalls and caves and go for boating on the Phewa lake.

We leave Pokhara for Lumbini driving along a very scenic highway via Tansen, a hill station overlooking the plains of Terai.This drive passes through green hills, dense forests, river valleys and beautiful Annapurnacontryside and finally reaches the tropical plains of Terai in Lumbini.

Lumbini is the birth place of the Buddha, founder of Buddhism. Obviously the place is of great religious importance. The main highlights here are the  birth stone put to mark actual birth place of Buddha and the Ashoka pillar put there some 2300 yrs before by the Indian Emperor Ashoka in his campaign to mark all the important sites related to Buddha's  life.

The drive   Lumbini to   Chitwan national park on a lovely drive through the plains of Terai.In Chitwan we enjoy elephant back safari, canoe ride, elephant breeding centre visit, birdwatching, etc and see wild animals like rhinos, peacocks, crocodiles, deers etc.Back in Kathmandu we celebrate your amazing trip with farewell Nepali dinner.
