Our Cultural Heritage and Nature Experiences Tour is a perfect all-around journey through Nepal.  The 8-day tour takes us through Kathmandu, to Pokhara and Chitwan. The tour kicks of in Kathmandu, where you will explore the city's several UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Pashupatinath Temple, Swoyambunath (also known as Monkey Temple), Boudhanath Stupa, and Kathmandu Durbar Square.  Each place is rich in culture and history.  Swoyambunath is full of symbolism and is one of the oldest religious sites in Nepal (over 2000 years old!). The Buddhist temple offers an incredible view of Kathmandu. Pasupatinath Temple is the most famous Hindu temple in the country.  You can see sadhus (holy men) meditating, pilgrims bathing, and bodies being cremated on the banks of the Bagmati River.  Boudhanath Stupa is one of the largest Buddhist shrines in the world.  Here we can see monks and devotees circumnavigating the stupa. Finally, Kathmandu Durbar Square is an old palace of the former Kathmandu Kingdom.  It is one of three Durbar Squares in the Kathmandu Valley. 

Then, enjoy the 10 minute cable car ride up to Manakamana Temple, a famous worship site for Hindus.   The same day, we reach Chitwan National Park, famous for its biodiversity.  Take a ride on the back of an elephant and possibly see rhinoceros, deer, wild boars, and even a Bengal tiger.  There is plenty to do in Chitwan National Park, so use your days wisely. We'll also have delicious food and a get to experience a traditional Tharu dance.  This package is a perfect way to make the most of your eight days in Nepal. The final destination is  Pokhara, a beautiful lakeside city and popular destination for adventure tourism.  We head to Sarangkot for an exquisite tour of several famous sites: Bindawasini Temple, Davi's Fall, Gupteswar Cave, and Seti Gorge.
