This day is for sightseeing around the Kathmandu Valley. We will provide you an experienced guide and a private vehicle to travel around. The city is full of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We will be visiting Boudhanath Stupa – one of the largest stupas in the world, Swoyambhunath – the oldest stupa of Nepal, which is also known as Monkey Temple. Also, we will pay a visit to the largest Hindu temple of Nepal- Pashupatinath, which sits along the sacred Bagmati river. Here, we will see Hindu holy men meditating, pilgrims bathing, and occasionally funeral fires burning on the ghats. Then, we will visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, located at Basantapur. Kathmandu Durbar square is a two-millennium old plaza. It houses the medieval royal palace, temples in the signature pagoda styles, and many more beautiful traditional architectures. Walking around the area feels like you are on the trip to ancient Nepal with its age-old structures all around. Although most of these structures got destroyed by the earthquake of 2015, there are still beautiful monuments left. After we finish the sightseeing tour of Kathmandu, we will move towards Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Bhaktapur Durbar Square is the place where royals used to live and ruled the Kathmandu Valley. This whole place is such a beauty that UNESCO has selected the entire city as a World Heritage Site. Here, we will see lots of palaces and temples built in the pagoda and shikhara style. The major attraction of this place is the fifty-five window palace. Other attraction includes the Lion Gate, the Golden gate, art galleries and the statue of King Bhupatindra Malla. Our last stop will be at Lalitpur, where we will learn about Nepalese history. The evening is planning for a further trip. Today, we will provide a detail explanation of our journey onwards.
Drive to The Last Resort, Cannoning program
The Last Resort is the top organization in Nepal to offer some of the adrenaline-packed activities for adventure enthusiasts. Be ready to experience an adventure of a lifetime as cannoning offers you an absolute rush of the thrill as you step on the ledge and jump down into the deep pools of water below. After enjoying cannoning, relax in one of the camps set up near to the forest as further adventure awaits you the next day.
Bungee jumping, rafting then drive to Kathmandu
Today, you will freefall down from the 160 meters high suspension bridge over the wildest river of Nepal, Bhote Koshi River. Then, you will enjoy rafting in the white waters of the Bhote Koshi River. Rafting is another exciting activity that energizes you as a whole, join a raft full of adventurous people, and enjoy the electrifying rafting. The Bhote Koshi River rafting is a complete experience that is beyond merely sitting idly and paddling. Occasionally, there comes a sense of calm when the raft glides on forward in a still pool of water. But, the calmness lasts only for a brief moment as in the blink of an eye, you will be moving down a soaring rapid. The experience is such exciting that the words cannot express it. After completing all the activities, we will head back to Kathmandu, enjoying some magnificent scenery on the way.
Drive to Dhunche (2030m)
Dunche is a small town in the hilly region of Rasuwa district. The road to Dunche is a smooth, winding, and broken sometimes by bone-jangling sections. You are sure to be amazed when you see a bus packed inside out with people, chickens, and goats, rumbling downhill. After arriving at Dhunche, stroll around the village and meet the friendly locals. In the evening, you can prepare for tomorrow’s trekking in the Langtang region.
Trek to Singh Gompa (3270m)
The whole walk to the Singh Gompa is quite pleasant. You walk through a forest full of oaks, hemlock, and fir trees. If the weather is clear, you might also get some mind-blowing views of the Langtang Peak, Ganesh Himal, and a few of the Tibetan mountains. The view from the Singh Gompa makes for some great pictures. Besides, there is a cheese factory near Singh Gompa where you can taste some native cheese in Nepal.
Singh Gompa to Gosainkunda (4460m)
We will be walking for a long time to reach Gosainkunda. The rocky trail allows you to get some enchanting views of many massifs, including the Himalchuli, Mount Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal. If the weather permits, you can get the view of the Annapurna range soaring in the backdrop. Enjoy the walk as you pass the forest, rivers, and cross over the multitudes of hillocks that inhibit the way to the magnificent Gosainkunda Lake. Gosainkunda Lake can be breathtaking. Stand at the bank of the lake and watch as the breeze sends quivers on its surface and let calmness set in as the serene waters lull you to the core. You will see the rough shrines nearby spattered with red powder as the bright color distinct the dull tones of the rocks. The bank of the lake is full of colorful prayer flags that flutter in the wind.
Day Eight :
Gosainkunda to Ghopte via Laurebina Pass (4609m)
Departing from Gosainkunda, we climb uphill to the Laurebina Pass and walk above the clouds. You get a heavenly feeling seeing the sea of clouds below. The trail then moves towards a rocky cliff and rolling hills in the background. Likewise, the prayer flags that fills the area shows the Tibetan influence in the region. From here, we move downhill to the Helambu valley with gorgeous views of the Himalayas in the north and forested hills to Ghopte in the south. Helambu is a native village with stone houses, lying in the middle of the base of the vast mountain ranges. Its beauty will capture you, making you never want to leave the place.
Ghopte to Khutumsang (2440m)
Walking through the rocky terrain, we move towards exquisite vegetation, as we walk towards Khutumsang village. The lush green meadows full of colorful prayer flags and small stupas along the way make you lose the sense of time. Moreover, the fog spread in the air adds to its beauty. And, the snowcapped peaks follow us from Ghopte to Khutumsang.
Khutumsang to Chisopani (2375m)
Chisopani is the name of a village at the top of the hill. From here, we can get a panoramic view of the majestic Himalayas. It is also the first stop in the famous Helambu trekking trail. There are only a few lodges here, and they all use solar energy for electricity.
Chisopani to Sundarijal, then drive to Kathmandu
Today, you will live the wilderness behind and return to the outskirts of the concrete jungle. As you climb down towards Sundarijal, you will see that it is quite a famous destination for locals to enjoy a quick wilderness. You might encounter a considerable number of people on a day hike or picnic. As we descend, the roads become more extensive, and you will see ways with vehicle accessibility. From here, we take a vehicle and return to Kathmandu.
Drive to Chitwan, Elephant Safari in Chitwan National park
The trip to Chitwan National park is just as beautiful as any trek in Nepal. The national park allows you to witness the wildlife nearby. While there, keep your eyes open to see the renowned one-horned Rhino. The elephants are gentle and climbing on their back, and you can enjoy the wilderness of the Chitwan National park.
Safari Inside the Chitwan National Park
