Have you ever heard people talk about their Nepal travel diaries along the line “once is never enough”? If you have not, you will surely hear from yourself after you delve into the heart of the Himalayas. Also known as the ‘Roof of the World’ , Nepal surely is a heaven on earth with diverse culture, history, stunning landscapes, wild jungles, rich traditions, and trekking routes that one cannot get the taste of in one visit. However, NepalHiking presents this tour, which comprises the best of Nepal’s culture, wildlife, and hiking in one go.

Kathmandu Cultural Treasures Haunt

Out of 10 UNESCO world heritage sites in Nepal, 7 are in Kathmandu. So, we will first delve into Swoyambhunath Stupa, located at the top hill, offering a paranomic view of Kathmandu, which is also known as the ‘Monkey Temple’ Another visit is the  largest stupa in the world, ‘Boudhanath Stupa’ and then to the oldest Kathmandu Durbar Square, where history can be witnessed through the temples and the unique architecture. In the evening, visit Pashupatinath Temple, one of the most sacred Hindu shrines and be mesmerized by evening arati.

Exploring Patan and Bhaktapur Dubar Square

Venture into the ancient cities of Patan and Bhaktapur, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Patan, known for its artistic heritage, is home to Patan Durbar Square, filled with stunning temples, courtyards, and the Patan Museum, which offers insights into the region’s history and culture.

Visit Bhaktapur Durbar Square, another medieval city, and explore the Nyatapola Temple and charming streets filled with local crafts and traditional Newari culture.

Scenic Ascent to Chandragiri Hill

Located just 13 kms away from the bustling city of Kathmandu, Chandragiri Hill provides panoramic views of Kathmandu Valley and the Himalayan ranges from Annapurna to Everest. You will need to take 15 minute ride on a cable car to reach the temple of Bhaleshwor Mahadev.  It is a historical fact that Prithvi Narayan Shah, king of the Shah dynasty, during the campaign of unification of Nepal, observed from this Chandragiri hill and thought of unification of Kathmandu Valley.

Pokhara and Annapurna Region: Hiking Heaven

After the cultural treasures haunt, we will fly to Pokhara from Kathmandu by flight.  Pokhara sightseeing at places such as Talbarahi, Word Peace Stupa, Bindabashini Temple, boating at Fewa Lake, surrounded by the majestic Machapuchre mountain.

Trekking in the Annapurna Region

For those seeking adventure, Annapurna Region won’t disappoint. The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is one of the beloved choice for its relatively short duration and breathtaking sunrise views over the Himalayas. If you plan this trek in the spring season (March-May), you won’t be able to help but fall in love with beautiful blooming rhododendron and quails accompanying you with their ‘kuhoo-kuhoo’ along with majestic mountains waving hi to you.

Wildlife Watching in Chitwan National Park
