Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Kathmandu

Arrive in Kathmandu and you’ll be transferred to the Hotel Nirvana Garden where you will stay for 2 nights.

The hotel is within walking distance of the Royal Palace and other highlights of Kathmandu but sits in its own tranquil garden where flowers, lush vegetation and a waterfall take you away from the bustle of the city.

Day 2: Sightseeing tour of Kathmandu

After breakfast you’ll be taken on a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu with an English speaking guide and a private vehicle. Take in the frenzy of Durbar Square, where Nepal’s kings were crowned and worshipped amongst the shrines and monuments that fill this pretty UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Highlights include Jagannath Mandir, a 14th Century temple that is carved with inscriptions in several languages. Telaju Mandir is the square’s most beautiful temple, dedicated to Taleju Bhawani, a wrathful form of Durga who once demanded human sacrifices.

Another impressive sight is Swayambhunath Stupa, one of the most revered shrines in the country. Perched atop a conical hill, it’s lofty white dome and glittering golden spire is not only a major landmark of Kathmandu, but equally, a symbol of Nepal as well as being an important Buddhist Pilgrimage.

Day 3: Drive to Panauti

Today you will be driven to Panauti, which will take around 1.5 hours and stay overnight in a homestay. Panauti is a small traditional town that was integrated in Nepal in the 13th Century and retains a charming historic feel from its many ancient temples, including Indreswor Temple, one of the highest pagoda style temples in the country.

Day 4: Day with host family in Panauti

You’ll spend today with your host family in Panauti, participating in various activities in the fields and community. It is a fantastic opportunity to really get under the skin of Nepal and learn the traditions and culture from its people.

Day 5: Drive to Last Resort

Today you’ll drive to Last Resort, close to the Tibetan Border, which will take around 4 hours. The resort is set amongst sprawling terraced slopes and dense jungles and built from local stone and wood. You’ll be sleeping in the luxurious tented camp, set in lush gardens where you can stargaze each night in the darkness.

Day 6: Day at leisure in Last Resort

You’ll spend today enjoying the facilities at the Last Resort, whether it’s having a relaxing massage amongst the quiet beauty of the area or packing your day full of wild activities like:

  • Bungee jumping – the 160m high bungee jump is one of the best in Nepal, with one of the longest free-falls in the world. The natural beauty of your surroundings will make the jump even more exciting.
  • Canyon Swing – This is the world’s highest giant swing, offering you a full on adrenaline filled adventure. Not for the faint hearted, the twin lines will swing you 240m at up to 150km per hour.

*Note that activities are not included in the cost; please book and pay for these locally*

Day 7: Drive to Bhaktapur

Today you’ll return to Bhaktapur and visit the Durbar Square with an English speaking guide. The central square is a hive of activity and the 55 Window Palace is the architectural highlight of the square. Enter through the glittering Golden Gate and explore the various temples and shrines that surround the cobbled square. Your final night in Nepal will be spent at the Bhadguan Guest House.

Day 8: Departure at any time

On your last day you’ll be transferred to Kathmandu Airport for your onwards flight.
