Welcome to the Nepal Kathmandu tour by Erco Travels. Local representatives from Erco Travels will be present at the Kathmandu airport to receive you and assist you in transfer and check-in at the hotel. Spend the rest of the day in relaxing and adapting to the local environment.
Begin the Kathmandu day tour by visiting the Durbar squares that include Hanuman Dhoka (complex of structures with the Royal Palace), Kumari Ghar (a palace in the center of Kathmandu) and Kasthamandap (a three-storied temple of Gorakhnath). After that, you can visit the Pashupatinath temple (Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva), which is located at the bank of Bagmati River. Evening time is for shopping. Return to the hotel for the night.
Today you can visit the Boudhanath, one of the holiest sites in Nepal for the Buddhists. The huge mandala of this stupa (structure with top in the form of a dome) makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal. Other major attractions are Swayambhu (a Buddhist stupa) and Changu Narayan (ancient Hindu temple) on the outskirts of the city.
Now it is time to visit the Chitwan. After a five-hour drive, arrive at the Chitwan National Park and proceed straight to the forest lodge for check-in. It is the first National Park in Nepal and is home to many species of mammals, reptiles and birds. You can have a short safari tour in the evening, if you want to.
Begin an early-morning jungle safari to see the rich wildlife of Chitwan National Park. The other key places of tourist interest near Chitwan are Beeshazar Lake and Narayangarh. Return to the lodge for overnight stay.
Next destination of this tour is the second-largest city in Nepal, Pokhara. It is a major tourist destination and serves as a base for trekkers who wish to trek across the Annapurna Circuit. On arrival, check-in at the hotel. In the afternoon, you can enjoy the scenic view of the surroundings from the two hilltops nearby. Evening is free for leisure activities. Overnight stay will be in the hotel.
On the full-day tour of Pokhara, you can visit the Barahi Temple, Gita Mandir and the Bhimsen temple. Water sports in Phewa Lake are also a major tourist attraction. You can visit the Pokhara Regional Museum in the evening. Return to the hotel for overnight stay.
After breakfast, it is now time to proceed to Dhulikhel on a four-hour drive. On arrival, proceed to the hotel for check-in. Dhulikhel is popular as a tourist destination because of the view of Himalayas from here. You can visit the Narayan Temple and the Harisiddhi Temple in the evening. Dinner and overnight stay will be in the hotel.
The entire day after the breakfast is free for leisure activities. You can have a small trek uphill to the Bhagwati (Kali) Temple or visit the GaukhureshworMahadev Temple east of the town.
On the last day of this tour, check-out from the hotel and proceed to Kathmandu by surface. On arrival in Kathmandu, head for the airport to board the next flight back to the home country. Thank you and have a happy journey with best wishes from Erco Travels.
