Review

Beginning in Kathmandu, spend two days with your private guide exploring the spectacular temples and stupas, the religious sites for Buddhists and Hindus. Visit surrounding towns to appreciate the Newari architecture and craftsmanship. Take an early morning flight to view the majestic peaks of Mt. Everest, Makalu and other mountains – a once in a lifetime experience.

Next visit the Royal Chitwan National Park for two nights. Once a hunting ground for aristocrats, the park is now a protected area, and you have the chance to spot one-horned rhino, leopard, deer, sloth bear, and perhaps even the elusive Bengal tiger, all while riding high atop an elephant's back.

After a good rest and exploring the elusive wildlife, fly to the trans-Himalayan town of Jomsom via Pokhra. All along the flight you will have clear views of Mt Annapurna, Machapucharre and other peaks sometimes as close as almost touching the mountain itself. This is a flight with some amazing views!

Spend one night in Jomsom at over 3,000m before returning to Kathmandu for last minute shopping before taking your onward flight.

Max your Awim Stay at the exclusive Dwarik’s Hotel. Built upon a rich tradition of Nepali hospitality and incorporating some of the country’s most exquisite architectural traditions, The Dwarika’s Hotel in Kathmandu is an authentic experience of Nepal’s ancient cultural heritage.

The hotel houses an extensive collection of artefacts from the 13th century onwards, and the buildings and courtyards house some of Nepal’s best craftsmanship – capturing the beauty and spirit of an ancient city. The amalgamation of Nepal’s heritage with its longstanding tradition of hospitality makes The Dwarika’s Hotel in Kathmandu an intimate experience of a refined Nepali lifestyle. 

Getting There

If you are travelling from Europe or the US east coast, it is likely that you will fly into New Delhi and then connect with a short flight to Kathmandu. For those travelling from Australasia or west coast of the US are likely to fly into Bangkok and then take a flight to Kathmandu. There are also some flights connecting with Hong Kong.

On arrival you can exchange your money at a bank just before immigration. Nearby is the visa counter where you can pay for your visa if you haven't got one already. While departing, for an international flight check-in at least two hours before departure, if not earlier as the counter gets busy during high season.
