Overview

Dharan and Ilam are two cities located in eastern Nepal, known for their natural beauty and cultural diversity. Dharan is renowned as a contemporary urban center with clean streets and well-developed infrastructures, setting a standard across the nation. Here, the fusion of Hindu and Buddhist culture with modernity is palpable, evident in sacred places such as Budha Subba, Pindeshwor, and Dantakali. Dharan also serves as a gateway to the hill station of Bhedetar, the religious site of Barahachetra, and the renowned Namaste Jharna waterfall. One cannot overlook the distinctive characteristic of Dharan—the striking blue hue over 80 percent of its rooftops—which has earned it the name of, "Blue Roofed City."

 

Ilam is a municipality located in eastern Nepal, in the Ilam District. With a long history of tea cultivation dating back to the late 19th century during the British colonial era, Ilam has become renowned for its high-quality orthodox tea, which is exported worldwide. The region's tea industry is a major source of employment and revenue for the local population, contributing significantly to its economic development and putting Ilam on the global map. Ilam district has a lot of beautiful places which attract domestic and international tourists equally. Places like Kanyam, Shree Antu, Sandakpur, and Pathibhara Devi pull tourists in large numbers, and rightfully so. 

 

Kanyam is a tea estate, where Nepal’s first tea factory is located. We can explore the tea gardens, taste the locally produced world-renowned tea, and ride horses across the vast acres of tea plantations. Similarly, Shree Antu is the area where the first sunrise of Nepal can be observed, but to witness this, one needs to hike for about half an hour to Antu Danda

Mountain Tiger is renowned for its adept leadership on treks, boasting experienced guides and attentive staff who cater to every aspect of your journey for nearly two decades. As a certified sustainable travel operator, we wholeheartedly support the concept of community contribution, engaging in diverse philanthropic endeavors.

You have two options for booking your flight to and from Nepal: you can either book directly through our platform, or you can reach out to us, as our sister company is an IATA certified ticketing agency, and they can assist you with the booking process.

The best time for the East Nepal Tour is during the pre-monsoon (spring) season (March to early June) and post-monsoon (autumn) season (Mid September to November) when the weather is relatively stable, and the skies are clear.

We recommend having cash of around USD 15-20; it should suffice for any additional costs you may need for a day.

Generally travelling solo does cost more compared to traveling with a group, as you’ll be responsible for covering all costs independently that includes food, accommodation, transportation and even leverage in negotiation. However, our program is structured to minimize additional expenses for solo travelers, requiring additional costs only for private trips or in the event of tour date postponements.

It's advisable to dress modestly out of respect for local customs and traditions, especially when visiting religious sites such as temples or monasteries. While there isn't a strict dress code for most attractions, it's best to avoid clothing that is too revealing or inappropriate for a cultural setting. If we'll be visiting any sites with specific dress code requirements, such as temples or religious monuments, we’ll surely inform you in advance so you can dress accordingly.

We advise against consuming street food in Nepal without consulting us first, as only a few vendors maintain proper hygiene standards. Additionally, it's important to take precautions such as wearing a pollution mask during tours, applying sunscreen and wearing a sun hat to shield yourself from the sun's rays, and only drinking filtered water to ensure your safety and well-being.

Tipping is customary during treks in Nepal but less common during tours. While Nepal doesn't have a strong tipping culture, it's entirely optional if you choose to tip and the amount is at your discretion.

Mountain Tiger Nepal has cancellation and refund policies. Please visit our terms and conditions page for more information.
