This February, we welcomed a mammoth group of 54 Singaporean corporate travelers from Pejandy Corporation Pte Ltd. The group spent 5 nights 6 days in the two iconic cities of Nepal, Kathmandu and Pokhara. The cultural tour that started from 14 February not just included the natural and cultural highlights but also had special delights like Annapurna Heli Tour, mountain flight, Zipflyer, Chinese New Year celebration and even a refreshing picnic in the wood. This tour provided the members with a welcome relief from their daily work life, and also offered them a chance to share beautiful moments together, which helps in making Pejandy a bigger and stronger family.
This multi activity tour comprised of Singaporean families with members ranging from 6 years of age to 80. So, the trip was more like an extended family tour rather than a bunch of colleagues just sharing corporate bonding. The group started their tour with a mountain flight the very next day after arriving in Kathmandu. After the magical views of stunning Himalayan range, they flew to Pokhara. Enroute they had yet another beautiful aerial experience of endless Himalayas including majestic Mt Manaslu and Annapurna. Once in Pokhara, they explored the city, did boating and had a pleasant stroll along lakeside- something typical in Pokhara. However, that was just a beginning. On 17th Feb, the group had a picnic at Dibolla, a quaint wooded area with a flowing river nearby. The same evening, they had a mini “lantern festival” to welcome Chinese New Year “The Year of Dog”. Well, a tranquil evening and gliding lantern rising up and up was some sight to behold!
The next day came with another greater delight of having an adventurous heli tour to Annapurna Base Camp. To organize a heli tour in the Himalayas for a group of 54 people was a feat in itself. However, everything went perfect with our two standby choppers. Thanks to Fishtail Air, one of our subsidiaries, who made this challenging tour flawless and memorable! After the real close up view of Annapurna, the members flew back to Kathmandu on the same day.
The thrilling memories of Pokhara were still fresh in mind but Kathmandu was all set to offer some historic moments. In Kathmandu, they visited two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Swayambhu and Patan Durbar Square. Both places known for immense architectural and cultural wonders offered rare glimpses of the heritages dating back to medieval age of Nepal. Finally after spending 6 days exploring the two mesmerizing cities, the trip concluded. However, the trip was not limited to touring alone – the group also took delight in the culinary richness of Nepal in some handpicked restaurants in Kathmandu and Pokhara including Kava, Pho 99, Boomerang, Mezze, Evoke, Gokarna House etc.
So as you can see, so many things and so few days – yet the trip made sure to hit up all the best spots and best activities by the end. As it is said “A happy employee is a happy business”, so needless to say, “Happy Pejandy” at the end!
