Upon arrival in Tribhuwan International Airport Kathmandu you are met by our representative and he will assist you to your private car and you proceed for tour of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Bhaktapur Durbar Square - one of attractions in Bhaktapur. The district has an average elevation of around 1,320 meters, and at its highest point is a mere 1,350 meters above sea level. Among the three major cities of Kathmandu valley, Bhaktapur retains some of its ancient way of life, reminding you of what the entire Kathmandu valley must have looked like during the medieval period. The remarkable architecture, the exquisite woodcarvings and metal craft that can be seen around the city takes one back to the time of the Malla rulers who patronized art like no other dynasty. The pagoda style temples rise above the Bhaktapur skyline, the Pottery square, the Palace (Durbar) Square which dates back to the 12th century, where devotees still celebrate their centuries old festivals and the temple squares that still remain vibrant, are Bhaktapur’s major attractions. The City’s archaic look itself draws tourists besides the elaborate festivals that remain unchanged for centuries. The Durbar Square is one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the valley.

Chitwan

Whole day Jungle Safari (Elephant ride, canoe ride, visit to Elephant breeding center, bird watching etc.) There is also a slogan "Visit Chitwan, Ride Elephant" popularized for promotion of tourism in Sauraha. Four persons can ride an elephant at one time. Seated high on the back of a trained elephant exploring the grassland and core area of the park, you became a integral part of the life of the national park. The elephant safari through, not the most comfortable rides, is an amazing experience. And it doesn't take to long spot at least a rhino in the forest. They generally last between 1 and 1.5 hours. If you came to Chitwan to relax, the canoe ride is a good way to do so. Also after a few days in the wild, this is great chance to become calm again with a canoe you will slowly pass the shores of the rivers which are full with amazing crocodiles and beautiful birds. During the trip you are accompanied by a guide who will tell you about the animals. Off course you don’t have to peddle yourself as a boatman joins the ride. Of all the animals, elephant probably are the most graceful. On your visit to the hattisar (Elephant Breeding Center) you will demonstrate how elephant’s meals are prepared and how they eat, and you will get various information on the nature and habits of elephants. The unique center was established in 1985 for the captive breeding of domesticated elephant trapping for domestication. Located in Sauraha the Elephant breeding center was set up to protect the endangered elephants in the region. There are often many baby elephants there and a small museum. The center is walkable from Sauraha but it will take 1 hour depending on the heat and road conditions. Tours or rickshaw transport are available part of the way.

International Mountain Museum: The museum is situated just 1.5km south from the Pokhara airport.

It provides information on mountaineering, the world’s mountain system, mountain cultures, environments, prominent people in mountain history, mountain geography, ecology, exhibition of mountaineering history and implied methods. Opens daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Davis Fall (Patale Chhango): The water flowing from Phewa lake shows a wonderful fall. We find hollow sandy part and a heavy fall of water within its natural trench. It looks really amazing scene of rainbow with sunlight when a volume of water falls in the deep rocky gorge and produces the water vapor especially in summer. Tibetan refugee camp: Since 1959, a group of Tibetan refugees have been living in Nepal. One such is Tashiling Tibetan Refugee Settlement at Chhorepatan, which is located near two popular sightseeing sites i.e. Davis Fall and Gupteshwar Mahadev Cave. One may visit Tibetan monastery, hand-made carpet factory, schools etc. in this community. Gupteswore Mahadev Cave: Gupteshwar Mahadev cave is just opposite sides of Davis Fall where the Hindu religion people worship a temple of their great god Mahadev inside the cave. Bindabasini Temple: It is located on the top of a small hill at the north end of the old bazaar. This is believed as one of the oldest temples in the valley, and is most famous in Pokhara. On lucky days, one may get to witness a Hindu wedding ceremony taking place, in the premises of this temple. One hour boat rides in Phewa Lake (5/6 Pax in one boat). Sail the boat on the lake over the mountain shadows. Chat with your loved ones and say ‘wow…’ together with your family over blue water. Those are the wonderfully relaxing ways. After boat rides, you will be given a free time in famous Lakeside Street (just outside the hotel area) for shopping or just road around or simply sit down at one of the coffee shops beside the lake and enjoy.

Morning tour of Swoyambhunath Stupa.

The Swayambhu Maha Chaitya with the semi-closed eyes of the Buddha overlooking the valley from all four directions is the most prominent monument and landmark of the valley.
