Real Nepal Tour

Nepal village tour with soft hikes, great mountain scenery and authentic countryside experience.

Dhampus VillageRather than superficial and touristy side of the country, this tour offers you an opportunity to immerse yourself in the peaceful life of Nepali countryside and watch the daily lives of the villagers from near. After exploring the heritage sites in Kathmandu, we take you to two scenic villages - Bandipur and Dhampus, both near Pokhara. reachable after few hours of soft hiking. For two nights you will sleep in village lodges surrounded by private houses and can be part of the lives around.

We start the trip exploring the heritage sites and tourist attractions in Kathmandu and fly to Chitwan national park in the plain land of Terai.. The  Chitwan natioanl park. is one of Asia's best preserved tropical national park where you can see one horned asian rhinos, different species of deers, elephants, crocodiles, leopards and if lucky even the Bengal tigers. The safari activities include canoeing on the river, bird watching, elephant back safari, elephant breeding centre visit, participating in elephant bathing etc.

BandipurAfter the tropical forests of Chitwan , we drive for 3.5 hours to the cool hills of Bandipur which is en route to Pokhara . The drive is very lovely through countryside and preserved forests. In Bandipur,  you will find a true countryside experience, traditional houses and village life unspoiled by tourism. The view of the Himalays you see form Bandipur is one of the most spectacular, a really very long panorama from east to west of Nepal. The exploration of the village is equally rewarding.

Next morning we drive for 1.5 hour to  Pokhara where we enjoy the nice lakes, impressive close view of the Annapurna and Fishtail mountains and a boat ride on the Phowa lake . We also visit t the cave and waterfall.

We will then hike to Dhampus and stay in a family run lodge in the ethnic Gurung village. The farm terraces, the cultural experience and the very close view of the Annapurna mountains will be an unforgettable treasure for a long time to come.

This is a highly recommended and popular tour with us, for those who are looking for village experience, tranquility and beautiful mountains.
