Discover the best of Nepal with us as you come face to face with friendly locals living in medieval-style towns, ride an elephant through a popular national park, encounter an intriguing collection of sacred Buddhist and Hindu shrines and enjoy multiple views of awe-inspiring Himalayan peaks. Your guided tour of Nepal will include:

 

The Kathmandu Valley, with its three traditional cities of Patan, Kathmandu and Bhaktapur, is a UNESCO world heritage site. The rich history of the valley spans nearly two thousand years. Religious and cultural festivities form a major part of the lives of people residing in the nation’s capital, Kathmandu. The city is said to have more gods than people and more temples than houses. Wandering through the narrow streets, you will see devotees paying visits to open temples, a daily ritual for locals. After visiting several Hindu and Buddhist shrines, you will develop your understanding of the theoretical links between the two ancient religions, including the famed concept of karma.
