Kathmandu Valley is extremely rich in art, architecture and cultural. The city is home to a number of vibrant world heritage sites that enrich the daily way of life in Nepal. Tour highlights include the holiest shrine in Nepal, Pashupatinath as well as the impressive white Buddhist Stupa in Boudhanath.
Our safari will take place in Chitwan National Park. The park is natural world heritage site that is well known for its rich bio-diversity and it is located just 5-6 hours drive to the southwest of Kathmandu in the lowlands of Nepal. Your tour will take in the wildlife and birds that we have in Nepal.
The cultural part of this trip is very easy going and open to people of all fitness levels. However, the trekking element, going to Ronbuk, which is at 4,900 metres is suitable for people with moderate to good fitness levels.
March to May is one of the best times to travel with lots of flowers in bloom, especially rhododendrons in the mountains. While the sky may not be crystal clear as during the autumn months, it is the second busiest season for trekking and travelling.
June to August is wet but the mountains and hills are covered with lush, full green forests and vegetation. The daily cloud coverage means that mountain views are not guaranteed but as very few people travel during this time it can present the perfect opportunity for people to explore the trails and nature in quiet.
September to November are the busiest months due to predictable weather and mostly clear skies. The mountain views are spectacular but the most popular trails can become quite busy.
The winter months of December to February are good to travel due to the clear skies and the reduced number of travellers. However, you should be prepared for cold temperatures.
