Tihar, or the Festival of Lights, is a five-day Hindu festival in the autumn that celebrates the intimate relationship between animals and people. It also worships Laxmi, the goddess of wealth, culminating in Laxmi Puja when rangoli patterns are made with colored powder and flowers. This trip will take you on a journey from Kathmandu to the old Malla kingdoms of Bhaktapur and Patan, and the lakeside city of Pokhara. Along the way, you will stay with local families to enjoy the full flavor of this magical festival.
This ten-day tour is a great option if you're short on time yet keen to see the Everest region. You'll spend your nights in the beautiful Himalayan lodge and your days either trekking or flying through the Everest region by helicopter. Kongde, the highlight of the trek, is a panoramic ridgeline perched about the Everest region that few trekkers get to visit.
This Best of Nepal tour perfectly mixes adventure and cultural exploration with relaxation. Featuring multiple days of trekking through the Annapurna foothills, you will start in the Kathmandu Valley before flying to Pokhara to begin the trekking portion of the itinerary. Discover Gurung villages and ancient temples and feed elephants and safari in the Chitwan National Park.
The Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys provide the perfect balance of Nepal's cultural and natural highlights. You'll start with Kathmandu's main cultural attractions before going overland to Pokhara, stopping en route at Bandipur, one of Nepal's most picturesque villages. After exploring Pokhara, you'll have additional time in Kathmandu to relax and sightsee before your flight home.

Great Vacation in Nepal. I spent twelve amazing days in Nepal. The main reason for my happy staying is the wonderful personalized itinerary prepared for me, by Sangita, a knowledgeable and perfectionist Local Tour Director.
