Trip Overview

Nepal, the cradle of towering Himalayas, boasts majestic mountains, a tapestry of vibrant cultures, an array of exotic wildlife in its national parks, and unique landscapes.

The Discover Nepal Tour is an ideal itinerary that showcases the nation’s key attractions.

This tour focuses on major urban centers, with Kathmandu, the temple-laden capital, at its heart. Famous for its pagoda-style temples and royal palaces, Kathmandu (1338m) is a historical treasure trove, home to three ancient royal palaces constructed during the Malla dynasty.
