Kathmandu valley, Chitwan, and Pokhara valley have been the mainstay of our Nepal cultural Tour,  for the sheer luxury of the diversities it offers in a single framework of a tour. It has something for everyone. If your proclivity lies in culture, art, architecture, and religious aspects, historical Kathmandu valley sparkles with it in every corner. For wildlife enthusiasts and photographer, Chitwan displays wildlife in its natural canvas seriously and also provide peek into ethnic ways of life, far removed from the flamboyance of modernity. And Pokhara always brings into the forefront, the ethos that Nepal is synonymous with - the mighty Himalayas ranges and varied form of activities and attractions that thrive under the shadow of Mt Annapurna.
These tours offer a slight deviation from the normal framework, adding a deft touch by incorporating local tourist bus rides in-between places, providing opportunities to rub shoulder with local people, interacting with them, and in the process offering far more authentic means to have insights into religious, cultural and social structures. Options are available to travel with a private vehicle is available as well.
After visiting local attractions and sights in  Kathmandu valley, the travel to dramatically different Chitwan, with jeep safari and elephant rides that take you closer to wild lives that form the central theme of this region along with peeking into tribal life that thrives on the fringes of the forests reserve. Our next port of call is the scenic Pokhara valley with lakes and surrounded by snow-capped peaks. Returning to Kathmandu valley, the journey culminates in the medieval town of Bhaktapur where you will see its history craftily carved and ornate in its wooden architecture that adorned the city.
