It is suitable for all age groups and is available for booking at any time of the year. The Best of Nepal 10 Days Tours makes for a perfect family holiday with the elderly and kids, as it is an easy-going tour that doesn't demand extreme physical strength. You'll travel by road on a comfortable tourist vehicle and only hike small distances.

Nepal is undoubtedly known for the Himalayas and mountain adventures like trekking and mountaineering. However, there's much to explore within this small Himalayan country of Nepal, blessed with natural and cultural heritage.

During your 10 days tour in Nepal, you'll visit beautiful Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas that bring peace to the chaotic city. Similarly, you'll wander in the natural settings of rivers, lakes, hilltops, and a national park, witnessing the unique flora and fauna native to the country. Furthermore, you'll also learn about the glorious history of Nepal, which has never been colonized by any other nation.

What makes the Best of Nepal 10 Days Tour even better? It's the humble and hospitable nature of Nepalese people that keeps you smiling throughout the journey. Not everyone could communicate with you in English, but they'd surely greet you with a smile and "Namaste."

Let's learn more about the places you'd be traveling to during your 10 Days Nepal Tour.

Kathmandu Valley

Kathmandu Valley is a large valley comprising 3 districts: Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur. The valley is also where the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, is located. For your Best of Nepal Tour, you'll visit all major tourist attractions in the valley, some religious and some historical. Starting from the religiously significant Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, we'll continue our tour to the famous Buddhist shrines Bouddhanath and Syambhunath in Kathmandu and finally to Patan Durbar Square in Lalitpur.

On our last tour day, you'll be taken to the ancient city of Bhaktapur to visit Bhaktapur Durbar Square and the surrounding places like Nyatapol, Pottery Square, and Shidha Pokhari. 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.

One last day remains in your "Best of Nepal – 10 Days Tour," and we utilize the day to its fullest by taking you on a day trip to Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur Durbar Square is the main attraction of Bhaktapur, along with Nyatapol, Pottery Square, Siddha Pokhari, and Rani Pokhari.

Bhaktapur Durbar Square is renowned for its vast and tragic historical features, including heritage monuments that still echo the vibrant histories of this once-ancient kingdom. During the unification of Nepal, king Prithvi Narayan Shah attacked the kingdom of Bhaktapur Durbar & bullet holes can still be seen on the palace walls. King Prithvi eventually brought an always-at-war feudal Nepal under one rule.

After taking a historical tour of Bhaktapur, we will drive you back to your hotel. Don't forget to try Ju Ju Dhau (traditional Newari sweetened yogurt) when you're in Bhaktapur. We invite you for a farewell dinner on your last evening in Nepal. Let's celebrate the beautiful country of Nepal together.
