Nature and Culture tour in Nepal

 
In spite of its small size, Nepal is blessed with unique natural and cultural diversity. We have designed Nepal Cultural and Natural Tour package to give you a glimpse of natural and cultural attractions of Nepal. The highlights of Nepal Cultural and Natural tour include visit to the historical Kathmandu Valley, natural Pokhara and wild Chitwan National Park
 
Kathmandu Valley holds a natural pull for tourists, no less because it hosts seven world heritage monuments: Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur Durbar Squares, Pashupatinath and Changu Narayan temples, Sowymabhu and Boudha stupas. Pashupatinath is the biggest and Changu Narayan the oldest Hindu temples in Nepal. Equally mesmerizing is the architectural beauty and artistic excellence manifested in the many palaces, courtyards and statues of the three Durbar squares. You will have two full days to explore all these valuable landmarks before leaving for Pokhara. 
 
Known for impressive panorama of Annapurna, Macchapuchre and Dhaulagiri peaks, Pokhara is a valley of perfect natural bliss. Here is a city of beautiful lakes, museums, bat caves and waterfalls. Multiple options are also available for adventure geeks from paragliding and boating to rafting and hiking. 
 
From Pokhara you will next head to Chitwan National Park, Nepal’s oldest protected area and a world heritage site. The park and the surrounding region were once Asia’s playground for biggest mammals and reptiles, today it is a sanctuary for Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos, Bears, Crocodiles and many more. Take time out to go on jungle activities such as bird watching, nature walk, canoe ride or simply visit gharial crocodile and elephant breeding centers. You can also observe and learn the culture and lifestyle of the indigenous Tharu community.   
 
 
Some of the major activities you will enjoy in Chitwan National park are as follows: 
 
Canoe Trip: You can enjoy canoe trip on either Rapti River or Budhi Rapti River which border the National Park. You can see two types of crocodiles, the Gharial and Mugger basking on the river bank. 
 
Bird Watching: For the bird watchers, the park is a paradise island with over 450 species of exotic birds both domestic and migratory birds. Many are threatened, e.g. the Great pied hornbill, Bengal Florican, Peregrine falcon, lesser adjutant storks, etc. A bird watching trip will be a memorable experience. 
 
Jungle Drive: A tour by four wheel drive in the less distributed areas of the park to track the rarer species. You will visit Ox-bow Lake and museum of historic interest relating to the park. 
 
Nature Walk: Our experienced naturalists will accompany you to the more specialized habitats. This is the ideal opportunity to explore and experience at closer quarters and beauty of the flora and fauna. The authority of the naturalist must be closely observed to obviate any risks from wildlife attacks. 
 
Elephant Breeding Centre: This is the first Elephant breeding centre in Asia. You can see baby elephants socializing with their parents and other babies. This centre is government owned and its purpose is to raise the young elephants, and to train them to convey tourist around the region. 
 
Village tour: Excursion in Tharu village will grant you an exhilarating experience. Tharus are the indigenous inhabitant of the Terai. We offer guided cultural tours to meet the people and experience their traditional self-sufficient way of life. 
 
Cultural Program: In the evening you will get an opportunity to be a part of Tharu folk dance. The drummers and symbolic stick dancers perform traditional movements and invite guests to join them in this rhythmic display. Such cultural shows performed by Tharus will be an unforgettable experience. The Tharus in traditional colorful costumes are sure to captivate you. 
 
Elephant safari: Take an elephant ride to view the wild life of the area in their natural habitat. 
 
Elephant Bathing: If you enjoy watching elephant bathing or want to get involve then this is definitely for you. 
 
Crocodile Walk: One more option is to go for crocodile walk. The trail passes into grassland and forest along the bank of Rapti / Narayani river.
