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.

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.

Enjoy the final hours in the lakeside city with breakfast at the hotel. Afterwards, we will retrace our tracks through the same route as before. The 200 km journey to Kathmandu along Prithivi Highway will take around 6 hours to complete. Depending on how early we leave, we will arrive back at the capital anywhere between the afternoon to early evening. During your leisure time, you can relax at your hotel or explore Thamel neighborhood and shop for souvenirs. We can also arrange a quick guided trip to the Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Rise and shine early to visit Pashupatinath and witness the morning aarati (prayers). Tourists and non-Hindus aren’t allowed inside the main temple complex but that isn’t an issue as the hills beside the Bagmati River offer fantastic views of most of the temple. You will be able to see the main structure, along with the morning aarati, shraddas, funerals and various other rituals going on around the temple, depending on how long you choose to observe. 
Click some pictures here and then return back to the hotel once you’re satisfied. After breakfast, one of our staff will assist you in reaching the airport if you have a flight scheduled. Otherwise, you are free to continue with your holiday as you wish.
