The Story

Best time to go: October - April
Best for: Slow Travel, First Time Visitor, Cultural & Immersive

You don’t always need to head off trekking in the mountains to sit back and look up at the amazing mountain scenery that the country has to offer. Quite often, just leisurely staying in a great hotel with a good book, looking out over an amazing mountain vista is all you want, maybe doing a light day-trek from the hotel if you want to stretch your legs. Begin in Kathmandu, spending three nights properly getting to know the city, exploring the main highlights such at Durbar Square, Swayambunath, Pashupatinath, Boudnath and Bhaktapur as well as walking through the colourful markets looking at the stunning architecture. Fly to Pokhara and spend three nights in Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge which has dramatic views over the whole Annapurna Range. You can opt for a leisurely day-walk around the lodge, visit Pokhara, or just sit on the terrace being brought a glass of this or that, looking out at the views. Meander down by road to Chitwan National Park where you spend three nights in the luxury Kasara Resort. Take game drives out either in jeeps, elephant-back or on boat seeing the diverse wildlife that Chitwan has to offer. Fly back to Kathmandu, and spend your final three nights in the lovely Dwarikas Dhulikhel. Here you can look out over the Himalayan peaks to the north, take a few spa treatments, or head off into the amazing villages that lie just outside of Kathmandu.
