Three weeks in Nepal is a celebration. Ms. Mathilde and Ms. Tinna Kellbergs from Denmark celebrated their 3 weeks’ vacation in Nepal with Explore Himalaya. The visitors from our sole Danish partner Kipling Travelexplored the cultural heritage sites of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur, trekked in the mid-hills of Nepal, recreated during the meditating hours at the serene environment in Kapan Monastery and visited the couple of hilltops during the visit that began on March 24 and ended on April 12, 2012.
The trip began at Kathmandu with the cultural sightseeing tour. Kathmandu is unique. Despite of colossal hustles and bustles the cultural treasures of the city are incomparable. The carnival city never gives up with the enriched Newari culture of merriments and enjoys almost every day at the scattered Hindu and Buddhist shrines worshipping the numerous symbolic deities within the sacred monuments.
Beyond few kilometers from the city, Kapan Monastery is an ideal location for getting the closer know how with the Tibetan Buddhist culture and meditation. Kellbergs experienced the eternal peace at the Gompa for three days. The spiritual peacefulness at the Gompa was followed by the bounty of scenic beauty in nature during their mid-hills trek to Kalobari, Samari and Nuwakot. Hilltops in Nepal are very special as they provide the glorious wide range of Himalayan views to the north. Kellbergs took the opportunities to visit one of the best hilltops of Nepal; Bandipur and Nagarkot.
As their trip ended at Nagarkot however, they had planned to spend their last days on a hilltop resort, Coontry Villa at Nagarkot. During those two days they explored the nearby regions in Nagarkot and got even closer with the country-side culture and beauty in Nepal.
On April 12, 2012 the departed Nepal with the joyful hearts.
