Day 01: Kathmandu
You will be met at the airport and then driven through the bustling streets of this town – a blend of ancient and modern. After hotel check in, you can relax and maybe wander through the streets.

Day 02: Sightsee in Kathmandu
Begin your journey to Nepal with a birds eye view – an early morning, 45 min breathtaking flight that soars over the valley and takes you see the unmistakable Mt Everest – to the Nepalise she is “Mother of the Universe”, and to us, the world’s highest peak.

Back on the ground, you will spend the reminder of the day exploring the streets and sites of Kathmandu. The best place to begin is Durbar Square and the many interesting places clustered around - Hanuman Dhoka, ancient royal palace, Mahadev and Parvati Temples, Kumari Bahal and the House of the Living Goddess. Later you can visit the Buddhist stupa of Swayambuhnath set atop a hill and crowded with monkeys. Then explore the local bazaars.

Day 03: Sightsee in Kathmandu
Lets devote this day to exploring art, architecture and history. Drive through the countryside towards the ancient city of Patan, also known as the “City of Grace and Fine Arts”.  On the way, you may stop at the Tibetan Refugee Crafts Centre. At Patan, there are many interesting places to visit - a sky-piercing Taleju Temple, a statue of Yogendra Malla, carved balconies of wood, ancient windows, curio shops and bustling bazaars.
After lunch we take you to the ancient maedieval capital, Bhaktapur. Its many interesting streets provide you a window into ancient life. You may choose to explore the royal palace, which has a small but excellent west wing museum. See also the Golden Gate, (the Sun Dhoka) which is the entrance to the Palace of 55 Windows, renowned as the most significant piece of artwork in all of Nepal. Later, visit the greatest living example of traditional Nepalese temple architecture, and highest temple in the Kathmandu valley, the Nyatapola Temple.

Heading back into Kathmandu you visit one of the most important Buddhist stupas in the world at Boudhnath, and wander the market under the all-seeing eyes of Buddha.
Furthering our journey we visit one of the holiest Hindu shrines in the world - Pashupatinath Temple. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is situated on the bank of the river Bagmati. Its pagoda style temple with gilt roof and richly carved doors is magnificent and a visit here is a must.

Day 04: Kathmandu - Pokhara
Today, after having enjoyed several days exploring the rich heritage of Nepal, we head to higher views to be moved by Nepal’s natural wonders. The morning flight quickly lands you in Pokhara, a popular village town where snow-capped mountains reflect in its placid lake. Pokhara is the starting point of some of the most famous treks and day trips in Nepal and boasts some great sites. This day relax by lakeside and explore the sites while drinking in the majestic mountains above you.

Day 05: Sightsee Pokhara
Rent some bicycles and explore the valley and its three lakes, Rupa Tal, Begnas Tal and the largest and most well known, Phewa Tal. Take an excursion with a picnic lunch to Devi Falls.
