The cultural highlights of Nepal combined with Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, and Nagarkot Tour is a visual feast of magnificent mountain views, lush green forest, and terraced fields with a mixture of Buddhist foundations and Hindu culture with natural wildlife safari. Awe-inspiring views of the white peaks of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I, and Manaslu, the world's highest mountain, are plentiful here.

The scenic territory is also a perfect place to connect with a spiritual side. Wilderness extending over miles with various picturesque, isolated hamlets, small villages, river embankments, and forested pathways impart a sense of connecting with the higher self and yet serene countryside. Nagarkot is a naturally inbuilt hill station of Nepal from where a traveler can enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains.

Naturally, Pokhara is the second-largest beautiful city in Nepal. Chitwan has several outstanding wildlife reserves home to hundreds of species of birds, wild animals, and butterflies, including various exotic and endangered species. For the jungle activities: one can go for an open Jeep safari, Tharu village tour, Bird watching, Tharu traditional Dance, Canoe Trip, and nature walking. Walk forest paths lined with mosses, ferns, and orchids.
