Itinerary

We have carefully planned out each day to give you the best possible experience. From exploring historic landmarks to tasting delicious local cuisine, each day is packed with adventure and excitement. Join us as we take you on a journey through some of the most fascinating destinations in the world.

When you land at the Tribhuwan International Airport, complete all customs procedures and meet up with our representative outside the terminal. They will be waiting to greet you with signboards of your name. They will also escort you to your hotel where you can freshen up after your flight. In the evening, you can simply relax at your hotel or visit our office for introductions and briefing regarding the tour.

After an early breakfast, you will be picked up from your hotel. After meeting up with everyone and packing all things, we will depart from Pokhara. It generally takes around 6 hours to complete the 200 km journey from Kathmandu to Pokhara. While driving along the Prithivi Highway, we will have a stop at Kurintar. From Kurintar, a cable car facility is available which will take you all the way to Manakamana. The side trip to Manakamana will take a few hours depending on how crowded the cable car station is.  Afterwards, we will continue following the Trishuli River and head out of Gorkha. Once at Pokhara, you will have some leisure time to spend as you see fit.

Today, we will visit our first major religious site, Muktinath. First, we head to the Pokhara airport to catch a flight to Jomsom. Muktinath is located at a distance of around 25 km from Jomsom and can be reached in an hour or so via Jeep. After the jeep ride, you will need to hike further for 10-15 mins to reach the temple.

Known as a place of liberation, Muktinath attracts thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims every year. There are various interesting spots to explore nearby, including the holy ponds, 108 water spouts and the perpetually burning flame at Jwala Mai. You may also go collect some Shaligrams, which are said to be a form of Lord Vishnu, if you like.
After a while, we will trek back down to our jeep for the return drive to Jomsom. As it is unlikely that there will be a return flight to Pokhara on the same day, we will instead spend the night at a lodge in Jomsom.

Accommodation – Lodge, Meals – Breakfast, Dinner

Enjoy scenic aerial views of snowcapped peaks, glaciers, lakes, lush hills and forests around the Annapurna region on your morning flight to Pokhara. Once at Pokhara, we will check into our hotel and have our breakfast. We will spend the day exploring the various famous spots and landmarks around the lakeside city such as Davis Falls, Gupteshwor Mahadev, Bindabasini Temple, Talbarahi Temple, World Peace Pagoda and more. It is also possible to go for a boating session in Phewa Lake if you want. We will stay overnight at the hotel in Pokhara.

After breakfast, we will pack our stuff and head out for a full day drive to Lumbini. There will occasional breaks during the journey, including one for lunch. We will stay overnight at a hotel in Lumbini.

Today, we will explore the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, Lumbini along with our second major religious site, the Maya Devi temple. Apart from the Maya Devi temple, there are various other interesting landmarks to explore such as the Ashoka pillar, Puskarini Pond, Tilaurkot Palace, Bodhi tree and more. We will stay overnight at a hotel in Lumbini.

Once again, we will have a full day of driving to our next major location, Janakpur. We will cover a distance of around 380 kilometers over 8-9 hours. The typical rural Nepali scenery of green hills, quaint villages, winding roads and rivers will surely be a pleasant experience. As usual, we will stay overnight at a hotel in Janakpur.

Accommodation – Hotel, Meals – Breakfast, Dinner

We will rise early today to visit the Janaki Mandir, a breathtaking model of Koiri architecture with a lot of religious significance. The temple is also popularly known as Nau Lakha Mandir, referring to the cost of its construction (Nine Lakhs i.e. Nine Hundred Thousand Rupees). This temple dedicated to Janaki (Sita) is over a century old, as it was constructed in 1910 AD. Once we’re done exploring this huge temple complex, we will head back to the hotel. Afterwards, we will have an afternoon drive back to Kathmandu.

Accommodation – Hotel, Meals – Breakfast, Dinner

With our tour almost at an end, we will have one more day of exploration; this time around the archaic capital. Also sometimes called the city of temples, Kathmandu is home to numerous religious, cultural and historical sites. Our tour will begin early in the morning at Pashupatinath, where we will witness the morning Aarati (ritual) taking place. Then, we’ll head over to Boudhanath for breakfast, which is only a few kilometers away. Next, we will visit Swayambhunath, a hilltop Stupa surrounded by numerous small Hindu and Buddhist shrines. Finally, on our way back to the hotel, we will stop at the old palace, the Kathmandu Durbar Square. In the evening, you will have free time to explore Thamel and purchase some souvenirs if you wish.

Accommodation – Hotel, Meals – Breakfast, Dinner

Enjoy the last day of the tour with some delicious breakfast at your hotel. If you have a flight scheduled, one of our staff will assist you in reaching the airport a few hours before your flight. Otherwise, you are free to continue your holiday as you wish.
