We then make a scenic drive along the highway to Pokhara, stopping midway for an overnight at the hill station of Bandipur. This charming town has traditional architecture and a spectacular panorama of the Himalaya. We enjoy a leisurely stroll around the village and a brilliant sunset as the stars then come out. The next morning after witnessing the sunrise we continue at a leisurely pace with a picturesque drive to Pokhara.
Pokhara is a restful city west of Kathmandu and nearby is a large, scenic lake. The majestic surroundings of mountains and the lake make Pokhara a must-visit for every tourist in Nepal. Our Pokhara Valley Tour features one of the most scenic valleys in Nepal.
We continue on from Pokhara with a drive through a serene valley along the Siddhartha Highway for a stopover at Tansen. Tansen is a large town along a ridge top with spectacular views. We soak up the atmosphere of this lovely town before we continue onward on a pilgrimage to the revered birthplace of Buddha. Buddha was born in the southern plains of Lumbini and into a royal family with the name of Siddhartha Gautam. His mother Queen Maya, died shortly after his birth. Our Lumbini tour takes us to the heart of history and we visit the birth site and majestic temples in the area.
The next morning we make a short drive to the dense jungles of Chitwan National Park. Our wildlife specialist takes us on a thrilling safari and a chance to see some of Asia’s rarest and largest animals including the one-horned rhino and Bengal Tiger as well as over 400 species of birds. There will be photo opportunities and informative descriptions by the guide.
After the safari thrills, lounging at the peaceful lodge and soaking up the views and retelling the day’s safari adventure will be a memorable event. Dusk on the plains with the darkening of the skies as the stars come out will put you in another world.
