Manish Khemka, Prakash Sharaf and their families started touring the Best of Nepal from May 11, 2012. The best of Nepal covers the cultural tour in Kathmandu valley, wildlife safari at Chitwan and sightseeing tour of Pokhara. They explored these destinations in a week time and departed Nepal on May 20.
On the arrival day at Nepal, the family was escorted to Chitwan 126km south west from Kathmandu. The first city of best of Nepal, Chitwan prides on Chitwan National Park. The park is the home of several endangered species. Penetrating the dense woods sitting on the top of elephant to observe these very rare species like one-horned rhino, Bengal tiger etc. is an absolute adventure.
Best of Nepal tour took the Indian family to another exotic city in Nepal; Pokhara. Pokhara, is the city of lakes, caves and glorious Himalayan views. Pokhara offers every modern amenity, yet it is closely surrounded by nature on every sides. Oaring the wooden oars at crystal clear Phewa Lake on a traditional wooden boat with the mesmerizing Himalayan views on the background and the lake itself is an extreme privilege offered by nature.
Finally, the last destination of the best of Nepal tour is Kathmandu valley. The heritage valley is full of heritage sites. The Durbar squares at Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan, Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath, Boudhanath and Changunarayan are the culturally, historically and religiously rich with primordial arty displays.
After, the exploration to all these sites the Indian family took a free day on their own. They wondered around Thamel, Asan and shopping sites in the valley. They were pleased with the hospitality we provided them.
The meeting and handling was very good and on time. We were provided lots useful tips about the Kathmandu and trek. During trek our trekking staffs were very helpful. Lodges were good with warm welcome every time. Itinerary was good and flexible and adapted to our needs.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
