Single room available
Meals Provided: None
Day 2 - Explore the bazaars and busy streets of Kathmandu

This morning we have arranged a walking tour visiting the bazaar and the Durbar Square area, the centre of old Kathmandu. Much of the day to day life of Kathmandu takes place in the bazaar: a fascinating mixture of people selling fruit, vegetables and spices; potters spinning their wheels to produce small household bowls and containers for temple offerings; devotees visiting their favourite gods at temples and small shrines dotted along the sides of alleyways; rickshaw wallahs honking their horns and the ever present sacred cow wandering amongst it all. In the afternoon we plan to visit the Temple of Pashupatinath on the banks of the Bagmati River, the holiest Hindu shrine in Nepal and also Bodnath, the largest stupa in the country and a destination for Buddhist pilgrims from all over Nepal.

Accommodation: Shangri La Hotel(or similar)

Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 3 - Discover the ancient City of Devotees and drive to Nagarkot

In the morning we visit the almost perfectly preserved city of Bhaktapur, also known as Bhadgaun or City of the Devotees. Bhaktapur feels more like a huge medieval village with its potters wheels and its many intricate stone and wooden carvings. We then continue to our lodge at Nagarkot on the Kathmandu Valley rim. Sunset views from Nagarkot back across the valley to Kathmandu are very impressive.

Accommodation: Nagarkot Sunshine Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast & Dinner
Day 4 - See the sunrise over the Himalayas in Nagarkot

Thirty five kilometres east of Kathmandu and at an altitude of 2,174 m, Nagarkot stands on a ridge between the Kathmandu valley in the west and the Indrawati valley in the east. We make a pre-dawn walk from our lodge to a nearby hilltop along the ridge to catch a spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas, and then return to the lodge for a late breakfast. There are many other possibilities for short walks during the rest of the day, including visits to neighbouring farms growing crops of fruit, vegetables and grain, under the spectacular backdrop of the snow capped Himalayan peaks.

Accommodation: Nagarkot Sunshine Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 5 - Drive to Kurintar and enjoy whitewater rafting along the Trisuli River (optional)

We make a morning departure to drive out of the high Kathmandu valley and descend to the foothills where we overnight at the much lower altitude of about 262m. As we leave the valley, on clear days we will have views of the Ganesh, Manaslu and Annapurna ranges of the Himalaya. En route we have the option of a half-day's whitewater rafting on the Trisuli River (Grade III-III+). No previous experience required. Includes all permits, services of experienced river guides, helmet, life jacket and lunch. We recommend that you are confident swimming for at least 25 metres unaided if participating in the rafting. As the rafting finishes at the beach just below our accommodation, those who do not wish to raft may relax by the hotel pool. Please note that there are some road improvement works taking place in Nepal, but they being carried out at night so there will be little or no change to the journey times. On the odd occasion that works continue in to the day time there may be slightly longer journey times, but this is rare and unlikely to have an adverse effect on the itinerary.

Accommodation: Riverside Springs Resort(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast & Dinner
Day 6 - Visit Gorkha and walk through local villages.

Next day we make our way to the small hill bazaar of Gorkha (1 1/2 hour's drive) where the surfaced road ends. The town which gave the feared Gurkha soldiers their name was also the place from which King Prithvi Narayan Shah set out to unify Nepal in the 18th century. A walk up to the ridge on which stands his old palace fort is well worth the climb. The view over the surrounding Annapurna and Manaslu ranges is spectacular.

Accommodation: Riverside Springs Resort(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 7 - Visit the Manakamana Temple and drive to Pokhara

In the morning there is an option to visit the nearby Manakamana Temple (1302m), the sacred place of the Hindu Goddess Bhagwati, using Nepal's only cable car imported from Austria and inaugurated in 1998. Local people call the goddess the wish fulfilling deity and the temple is a popular pilgrimage site. Afterwards, we continue our journey on to Pokhara situated beside Lake Phewa Tal beneath the Annapurna range.

Accommodation: The Lake Side Retreat(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 8 - Walk through the Gurung and Chettri settlements and take in views of the Annapurna range

On our first morning in Pokhara, we take a walk through some small Gurung and Chettri settlements to the World Peace Pagoda, situated on a ridge above Pokhara. From here there are spectacular views of the mountains making up the Annapurna range which at this point are only 48km away - from Dhaulagiri in the west to Annapurna II in the east. The rest of the day is left free to explore the tranquil town of Pokhara, perhaps taking a boat trip on the lake, or simply sitting back and admiring the breathtaking beauty all around.

Accommodation: The Lake Side Retreat(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 9 - Discover Pokhara's Mountain Museum and visit the Tashiling Tibetan settlement

Today we'll visit the Mountain Museum housing expedition memorabilia and information on ethnic groups, flora and fauna. We'll also visit Tashiling, a long established settlement of Tibetan refugees. We spend some time here watching wool being sorted, dyed and eventually made into Tibetan carpets which are exported all over the world and then visit the village's Buddhist monastery.

Accommodation: The Lake Side Retreat(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 10 - Drive to Bandipur and explore the town and its bazaar

Leaving Pokhara we take a short drive to the hilltop town of Bandipur. After a short walking tour of the town and the bazaar there is free time to explore this traditional Nepali town. Bandipur is a small, quiet town that doesn't attract as many tourists as nearby Pokhara. There are several small temples to visit and stunning views back across the Himalaya. You can also take an optional walk to Siddha Cave, the largest in Nepal with a huge interior full of impressive stalactites and stalagmites.

Accommodation: The Old Inn Bandipur(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 11 - Drive to Chitwan National Park

Today we drive from Bandipur to Chitwan National Park. Once a private hunting ground, Chitwan is now a National Park, with thick tree cover and tall elephant grass sheltering a wealth of animals, most famously the one-horned Rhino. Our lodge is located just across the Rapti River, outside the park, near the village of Baghmara. Throughout your stay you will be kept busy during the day (except for a couple of hours around lunch time) with many activities available, including jeep safaris searching out the one-horned rhino, bird watching, jungle walks and drives and dugout canoe trips along the Rapti River. Canoeing will be dependent on the water level, floating silently down the river in a traditional dugout canoe gives us the opportunity to spot many varieties of water birds. On a nature walk in the company of trained native naturalists you can walk along trails in the less densely forested parts of the park. An early morning bird watching walk near the river will reveal many of the 450 bird species that can be found in the park, especially kingfisher. A trained naturalist will help you get the best enjoyment and interest from these excursions.

Accommodation: Jungle Villa Resort(or similar)

Day 14 - Free time in Kathmandu

Today is left free to explore Kathmandu. You may like to visit Swayambunath stupa, perched on a hilltop and also known as the 'monkey temple' because of its resident group of very inquisitive primates. Or perhaps Patan, the 'city of beauty', whose Durbar Square has the finest collection of temples and palaces in the entire country.

Clothing

You can expect to wear short sleeved shirts and t-shirts during the day in the Spring and Autumn months but it does get cool in the evening, so bring some warmer clothing as well. In December and January evenings can be very cold and you will need a down jacket and thermal layers. It's worth bringing a good quality waterproof. No bright coloured clothing for Chitwan. Do not wear lycra tights or leggings or very short shorts as the Nepalese find these offensive. Nagarkot can be cold most times of the year.

Footwear

Comfortable shoes (eg. trainers) and sandals, plus lightweight boots if you wish to take part in any walks.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

One main piece of baggage and a daysac. You will find it more convenient to travel light when outside Kathmandu. Any extra luggage can be stored in Kathmandu hotel.

Equipment

A torch. Binoculars for animal & birdwatching in Chitwan National Park, a universal bath plug and antibacterial handwash, are useful to have along. You may also want to bring with you ear plugs and insect repellant.

Tipping

Explore leader
At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Tour Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognised part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. Accordingly, you should allow £25 for tipping. In order to make things easier for you, the Tour Leaders may organise a group's tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour.
