Classic Nepal Tour


Nepal is an attractive destination not only for trekkers and adventure enthusiasts but also for travellers who are looking to explore its fascinating landscapes comfortably. Our Classic Nepal Tour begins in Kathmandu at an altitude of only 4250 ft. Here in the Kathmandu Valley you visit historic cities, temples and shrines.

Then you take a flight to Pokhara, 2950 ft. where a fantastic view onto the Annapurna mountain range can be enjoyed. Experience an idyllic boat-trip and visit various sacred sites and places of pilgrimage.

Finally, in Chitwan National Park you experience wildlife-safaris by foot, boat or on elephant to gain a comprehensive insight into the jungle world. The park provides habitat to more than 400 bird species, the rare Indian Rhinoceros bears, leopards, wild boars, crocodiles and antelopes.

Before returning back to Kathmandu you visit Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha. Emerge yourself into the world of Buddhist monasteries from all over the world.

You will be accompanied by experienced, local guides and drivers with well-maintained, comfortable and appropriate vehicles. We provide you with our suggestions for hotel- & accommodation in line with your budget, timeframe and preferences. Our network of local contacts allows you to experience this fascinating Himalayan state close-up and without stress.
