Overview

A journey like none other, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tour takes you to all the UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites of Nepal. Beginning our journey from Kathmandu valley, exploring its rich history filled with medieval arts and architecture. The ancient city of Kathmandu is a captivating blend of legends, mysticism, and urban vibrancy. Kathmandu’s past is filled with tales of mystical beings and its birth from the actions of a Bodhisattva who emptied a massive lake. Now a bustling urban hub, Kathmandu is a blend of the old and the new. 

 

From Kathmandu we take a flight to Lukla, gateway to Mount Everest, starting a mini trek adventure in the Sagarmatha National Park. The 6 days trek commences as we make our way to Phakding from Lukla the very day we land there. From Phakding, we climb a steep path, savoring awe-inspiring vistas of the magnificent Himalayas, flowing glacial rivers, colorful prayer flags, and sacred mani stones. We get our first glimpse of Mount Everest as we make our way to the delightful Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar by early evening. Namche stands as the largest and most prosperous town in the Khumbu region, hosting a bustling bazaar every Saturday. The next day, we take our day off and acclimatize in Namche by hiking up to the Syangboche airstrip and the world's highest hotel, Everest Hotel View. From Namche Bazaar, we trek to Tengboche and explore the famous Tengboche Monastery. 

 

After landing back to Kathmandu, we go on a continuous journey to Lumbini and then to Chitwan simultaneously. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lumbini comprises the sacred garden, monasteries, and archaeological remains, providing visitors with an opportunity to explore the historical and cultural significance of the area. In addition to its religious importance, Lumbini offers visitors a unique cultural experience. The Lumbini International Monastic Zone features monasteries built in various architectural styles, reflecting the diversity of Buddhist traditions from around the world. Visitors can observe and participate in Buddhist rituals, meditation practices, and cultural programs organized by these monasteries. 

 

Chitwan National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a significant conservation area, protecting some of the last remaining populations of endangered species like the one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tiger, and Asian elephant. Chitwan's unique ecosystem and biodiversity have made it a crucial area for environmental research and conservation efforts. It is one of Nepal's major tourist attractions, drawing visitors from around the world to experience its natural wonders. The park offers a range of activities, including jungle safaris, elephant rides, canoeing, and bird watching, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the region's rich wildlife.
