Both the Durbar Squares have historical values for you to learn something insightful about Nepalese history and an amazing atmosphere to spend some time in.
Pokhara is the second destination of our Best of Nepal 10 Days Tour and a favorite among travelers as it is rich in natural beauty and is way less populated than Kathmandu. You'll boat in the amazing Phewa lake, crawl into the natural caves, witness pristine waterfalls, watch mesmerizing sunrise from Sarangkot, and hike to the hilltop of Naudanda for a breathtaking Himalayan view of Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Machhapuchre.
The visit to Tal Barahi Temple in the middle of Phewa Lake and the World Peace Pagoda at the top of a hill gives a spiritual twist to your natural tour of Pokhara. The beautiful lake city of Pokhara has tons of fantastic cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, and clubs for you to enjoy in the evening.
Chitwan National Park
Chitwan National Park, established in 1973, is the first national park of Nepal and is listed among UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The national park, situated in the subtropical lowlands in south-central Nepal, is home to the rare One-horned Rhinoceros. Tourists mainly visit Chitwan National Park to see the Rhinos, but the national park is a complete package housing many other animals and birds like Bengal Tiger, Clouded leopard, elephants, crocodiles, deer, Asian Openbill, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Red-vented Bulbul, etc.
While in Chitwan, you'll go on Jeep Safari in the national park forests, Elephant Back Riding, Canoe Riding in the river, Jungle Walk, Bird Watching, Elephant Breeding Center visit, and a local Tharu village tour. You'll also enjoy the Tharu cultural stick-dance performance while having a delicious Nepali dinner.
Best Time for the Best of Nepal Tour
The 10 Days Best of Nepal Tour can be booked for any month of the year. However, if you want the tour to go smoothly, avoid the summer/monsoon months of May, June, July, and August.
As Chitwan is located in the lower Terai region of Nepal, it gets really hot in the summer, and the temperature can go as high as 40 degrees Celcius. On the other hand, Pokhara receives the most rainfall in the entire country, with an annual average rainfall of over 3900 millimeters. If you happen to be in Pokhara in the monsoon, don't be surprised if it rains continuously for weeks.
Hence, October to March is the safest and most pleasant window of the year to plan the Best of Nepal Tour of 10 Days.
We offer private as well as group-joining trips for the Best of Nepal Tour package. Please select the dates and book your tour. Feel free to contact us at Outfitter Nepal for any queries. We can also organize a customized trip just for you.
