Nepal Tour Eight Days Itinerary Brief

This eight-day Nepal tour is unique because of the combination of heritage, nature, wildlife, and mountains. All three cities will present you with very different experiences. Starting from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, you will be diving deep into Nepal's history, architecture, and culture. Kathmandu is known as the city of temples, as every corner has one. This city is home to numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like an open museum. You will explore palaces, courtyards, temples, shrines, stupas, bustling markets, and lively streets. Here, you will learn about the Nepalese people's faith. You will drive to Nagarkot on the same day to spend the night.

The tour then goes to Pokhara en route, stopping at the Manakamana temple. On the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, we will stop to visit Manakamana Temple, a sacred Hindu temple. Situated on a hilltop at 1,302 meters, we must use a cable car to reach the top. For more information about Cable Car please visit the link Manakamana Cable Car. The view of the landscape is stunning while travelling by cable car. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Bhagwati, who is believed to fulfil the wishes of her devotees. We will then continue the tour to Pokhara. Pokhara is known as the city of lakes. There are many small and big lakes around and in the city. You will stay overnight at the Lakeside (like Thamel in Kathmandu). It is a bustling tourist hub made at the bank of Phewa Lake. Pokhara is all about getting close to nature. Here, you will explore viewpoints, caves, and waterfalls. You will also see the western Himalayan mountain panorama of Annapurna (8,091 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), and Fishtail (6,993 m). And our last destination of the Nepal tour for eight days is Chitwan. Chitwan is home to dense forests and numerous flora & fauna. To make the tour more intimate, we will take you to the indigenous village of Tharu. A short time with them observing their stick dance, vibrant attire, and hospitality will give a new turn to the tour. And the following day, we will spend a whole day in Chitwan National Park doing various adventurous activities. The tour in the national park begins with a canoe ride down the Rapti River, during which you can see multiple species of birds, crocodiles, and even freshwater dolphins.

Then you will go into a jungle to explore the park's vegetation and spot smaller animals and birds. We then have a small break and begin a jeep safari deep in the wilderness. The safari lets us see animals like tigers, rhinos, elephants, deer, monkeys, and wild boars. End the tour by visiting the elephant breeding centre.

Side Trips During The Tour

Manakamana Temple

You will visit the Manakamana Temple on the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The temple has a rich history dating back to the 17th century. It is believed that the goddess Bhagwati appeared in a dream of King Ram Shah of Gorkha and asked him to build a temple in her honour. The king followed the goddess's command and built the temple, which has since become a popular pilgrimage site for Hindus.

The temple is adorned with beautiful carvings and artwork and is visited by thousands of devotees annually. The main prayer hall of the temple is decorated with gold & silver plated statues of various deities, including the goddess Bhagwati. The temple also has a sacred pond called "Gorakh Kunda", believed to have healing properties.

Bindabasini temple is located in the heart of Pokhara. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Bindabasini, who is considered to be a form of the goddess Durga. It is one of the oldest and most significant pilgrimage sites for Hindu devotees. The temple is on a hilltop, and you must climb several stairs to reach the main shrine. The history of the Bindabasini temple dates back to the 17th century. The temple was believed to be built by the King of Kaski, Khadga Bikram Shah, to honour the goddess Bindabasini.
