Nepal, a tiny mountain nation, wedged between the high wall of the Himalaya and the steamy jungles of the Indian plains, is a land of snow peaks and Sherpas, yaks and yetis, monasteries and mantras. Every year, thrones of travelers are drawn to its mystical allure and Nepal offers an astonishingly diverse array of attractions and landscapes.

This tour will show you the best of what Nepal can offer.  We will bring you to stroll through the temple-lined medieval city squares of Patan and Bhaktapur, get teased by the cheeky monkeys at Swayambhunath Temple, receive blessings from the Boudhanath Stupa and visit the popular Pashupatinath Temple. In addition, chase the sunrise and sunset at transquil Nagarkot as well as roam through Chitwan National Park for the amazing wildlife there. If you are lucky, you might even be able to spot a tiger! What are you waiting for, you should be here!
