Itinerary

Day 1Kathmandu
Namaste! Welcome to Nepal. The adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 5pm. Quirky Kathmandu is a fun mix of ancient architecture and contemporary development. For decades, it’s been a legendary destination, the first stop for exploring the mightiest mountains in the world. Its streets are filled with signs of the country’s long artistic and cultural heritage, and you can explore the narrow lanes of Pashupatinath, filled with holy men, monks, bicycles, incense, goats and even sacred cows. Discover crowded market places, bazaars, and hole-in-the-wall eateries that are the centre of Nepali life, as prayer flags flutter overhead.
Day 2Nagarkot
After breakfast, head to Nagarkot (approximately 3 hours). Along the way you'll visit Bhaktapur and Changunarayan, both of which have been protected by UNESCO Heritage status. In Bhaktapur, begin your explorations at Durbar Square, which is reputed to be the most beautiful piece of art in Nepal. Durbar Square is home to the majestic Lion Gate and Golden Gate. After exploring the beautiful temples of Bhaktapur, travel to Changunarayan, which is located on a high hilltop that is also known as Changu or Dolagiri. The temple is surrounded by forest with a champak tree and a small village. The temple is known to be the oldest temple in the history of Nepal. Continue to Nagarkot and take in the awesome Himalayan views it offers.
Day 3Pokhara
Wake up nice and early and be greeted by a 180° sunrise view. Be sure to have your camera ready to snap the glory of the surrounding Himalayan peaks in the morning light. It's well worth the early start! Afterwards, head back to the Kathmandu Airport (1.5hrs) for a short flight to Pokhara (the flight takes approximately 30 minutes). Arriving in Pokhara, we head out as a group for a boat trip on the lake, Phewa Tal. Relax lakeside and enjoy the lush and tranquil surrounds against the backdrop of incredible mountains, and spend some time at Barahi Temple, which is situated in the middle of the lake itself. Tonight's accommodation has fantastic grounds to spend some quality family time in; make the most of that swimming pool.
