Kathmandu, Chitwan, Lumbini, Palpa, Pokhara, Bandipur and Nagarkot (11N/12D)
The capital city of Nepal is busy and bustling with people and vehicle from dusk to dawn. Yet the city provides multiple opportunities and destinations for any traveller to visit. Many monasteries, temples and heritage sites are often visited in the Kathmandu valley. Historical places such as Kathmandu durbar square, Bhaktapur durbar square and Patan durbar square can be visited, which are the Kathmandu valley’s most popular visiting areas. Many people want to visit the temple of Pashupatinath, the stupa of Boudhanath and the stupa of Swayambhunath. During sightseeing in Durbar Square areas, tourists can appreciate the elegance of architecture.
In the southwestern portion of Nepal, Chitwan is situated. It is Nepal’s fourth largest district, occupying an area of 2,238 km2, and is renowned for its National Park. Chitwan National Park, which covers an area of 932 km2, was established in 1973 as the first national park in Nepal. Jungle events, such as elephant riding, jungle walking, canoeing, elephant bathing and jeep safari, were witnessed by most of the visitors. Chitwan National Park is so wonderful to meet rare animals of the world such as one horn rhino, gharial, leopard, tiger of Bengal, python of Indian rock and other species. The park was mostly set up to save the One Horned Rhinoceros, the Royal Tiger of Bengal and the Gharial Crocodile. With natural scenery, various types of species and animals, you can explore the whole area. Chitwan National Park was also designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
Lumbini, situated 22 km west of Siddharthanagar (Bhairawa), was the birthplace in the 7th century BC of one of the most respected people throughout history, Siddhartha Gautama, best known as the historical Buddha. This was a teeming monastic site and a significant place of pilgrimage during the years after the life of the Buddha, but the site was largely forgotten until the discovery of an inscribed pillar left behind by the Buddhist emperor Ashoka in 1896, among a collection of monastic remains.
Perched high above the River Kali Gandaki, Palpa (Tansen) is an undiscovered city whose reward is precisely that. When you uncover the facts of a rich past, there is a feeling of adventure here, all the while witnessing everyday life in this mountain village. Any intricately carved Newari windows will be found here; there you will hear the clacking of looms. Though it does not have Bandipur’s pretty smile, over time, these deeper charms appear. If you’re fortunate, the mist that always carpets the Madi Valley in the morning, known locally as the ‘White Pool,’ would be one. Just make sure to wear your walking shoes: all the exercise you need will be provided by the steep streets.
With stunning landscapes, adventure sports, and lodging and food options galore, Pokhara checks all the right boxes. Lakeside Pokhara is the best spot to refresh your batteries, whether you have returned from a three-week trek or undergone a difficult bus ride.
The scene is a chilled-out version of the Thamel neighbourhood of Kathmandu, stretching along a calm lake ‘s shore with bobbing paddle boats. You will enjoy a clear view of the snow-capped mountains from the lake, and probably even from your hotel room, only 20 or so kilometres away. Pokhara has far more to it than its laid-back elegance. It also boasts a thriving adventure-sports industry: it is arguably the finest location on the globe for paragliding and is lined by rivers of white water. There is an interesting museum devoted to a world-famous soldier called Gurkha. And finally, it is the gateway to and beyond the world-famous treks in and across the range of Annapurna.
Bandipur is a living museum of the Newari culture, one of Nepal’s most charming cities, a beautifully preserved village crowning a lofty hill, its main street lined with traditional row houses. Time appears to have stood still here, while maintaining this magic while improving the city as a destination has taken a lot of work. Derelict houses have been revived as cafes and lodges, and the verge of decay has drawn out temples and public structures. It has a distinctly European feel with its attractive 18th-century architecture, pedestrian area and outdoor dining.
Nagarkot is a grand hilly town amidst snow-covered mountains. It stands in excess of 7,000 feet (2,000 meters) above sea level and offers awesome perspectives on the Himalayan mountain range. You can view the majestic mountains that miniaturize this little town.
