SUMMARY

Know the destination

City, Mountain, Jungle, Precious People, Culture and Religion equal to Magic!

We will venture through a country full of energy, simple and humble with incredible and unforgettable experiences.

We will know through this itinerary its people, its main temples or stupas and beliefs where Hinduism and Buddhism mix a lot. We will go to the main cities where we will get lost in the streets full of typical crafts, food, high mountain equipment and more.

We can mix adventure and risk introducing ourselves into the jungle along with rhinos, alligators, elephants, bears and if we are lucky, bengal tigers. I invite you to my favorite country in Asia, Nepal.

DAY TO DAY Itinerary day by day

The prices that appear per day are referential and correspond to the sum of activities that were made that day

    DAY 1 USD

    Once you set foot in Kathmandu, you head to the Thamel neighborhood, the best place to stay, eat and be. On this first day I recommend getting lost in its wonderful streets, observing all the crafts, jewelry and if you like, take advantage of buying high mountain clothes and equipment at very low prices. You can also visit the Durbar Square in the historic center, of great architecture, which was unfortunately affected by an earthquake in 2015.

    DAY 2 USD 10

    We will prepare to go to one of the most beautiful and characteristic temples of the city called Swayambhunath or better known as Monkey Temple which is free. The place is an excellent viewpoint of the city and there you can watch the locals meditate turning the wheels of mantras. At the end of the day I recommend visit the crematorium and the only Hindu temple; the Pashupatinath, where their loved ones are cremate and a very special ceremony is held.

    DAY 3 USD

    We said goodbye to Kathmandu to go to Pokhara, the second main city which is also known because it is the starting point for different treks from Annapurna Base Camp. You will take a tourist bus on Kantipath Road on a trip that lasts about 7 hours. When you arrive in Pokhara I recommend you go for a walk and explore the center of the city by the lake, enjoy and relax.

    DAY 4 USD 5

    During the morning, hire a local boat in the lake to go to the first world peace Pagoda or Shanti Stupa where there is a giant Buddha that seeks to unite pilgrims of all races for world peace. This pagoda is perched on an island in the Phewa lake in Pokhara and its entrance is free. The beautiful journey takes 20 minutes rowing and another 25 walking up to the temple. You rent the boat in the same lake. Do not forget to haggle.

    DAY 5 USD 42

    We go to Chitwan in a trip for about 6 hours. You will arrive to the city of Sauraha and you must take a “taxi” that approach you to the edge of the park where your accommodation is. We hired the Chitwan Jeep Safari Cost tour which is a 4 hour trip and covers a 40 km route inside the park where you can see wild rhinoceroses, crocodiles, deer, birds and if you are lucky, even a Bengal tiger.

    DAY 6 USD 37

    This morning we take the Chitwan Canoe Ride, Short Jungle Walk and Elephant Breeding Center Cost, a 2 to 3 hour tour that consists of canoeing, hiking in the park and feeding the elephants. Always with a guide that goes to your care with a bamboo stick just in case. Yes, bamboo stick, as it sounds funny. The next day, the hotel can take us to the bus station to return to Kathmandu and take our plane.

RECOMMENDATIONS Tips for your trip

To eat go to the OR2K restaurant in Kathmandu and in Pokhara, good vegan food.

For an amazing coffee and spend a pleasant moment go to the Himalayan Java Coffee in Thamel, Kathmandu and Pokhrara.

If you are going to do some trekking and you are lack of equipment, I recommend you to go to the Marmot store in Thamel, Kathmandu.

In all hostels and hotels there is internet / Wifi, therefore I invite you to disconnect and not to buy a sim card for your phone.

Do not forget to always say hello with a NAMASTE.

Important information:

To enter Nepal, you must pay for the visa at the same airport according to your nationality and how long are you going to stay plus a photo of you carnet size.

To mobilize in Kathmandu, the easiest way to do it is by taxi from the street, always looking to bargain prices. They can take you to the attractions that are further away from your hotel.

There is a charge to enter the Durbar Square that serves for the reconstruction of the place affected by the 2015 earthquake, which is not necessary if you enter from another street that it is not the main.

Always bargain prices for everything except restaurants and do not walk alone at night.
