Scenic Nepal Tour   

Printer Version Page

Scenic Nepal Tour takes you through the amalgamation of nature and history touring you at Kathmandu, Pokhara and Nagarkot. Kathmandu valley is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal and has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The valley offers you a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence. Pokhara on the other hand is virtually located in the geographical center of Nepal and there may be no other place in the world from which the great Himalayan peaks can be admired from such a close distance. Pokhara is marked by a half dozen lakes of varying sizes, all linked by a trekking trail. Hence, it is also known as a Lake City of Nepal. It is Nepal's tourism capital and the second largest tourist destination too.
