With the infectious presence of sun-drenched lowlands, majestic Himalayan peaks glistening with snow, ancient hand-carved temples and sprawling cities, Nepal has a lot to offer to foreign travelers.

And whenever you choose to visit Nepal for your holidays, there are some places which you should never miss out on as they stand out with their incomparable charms & exquisiteness. Among such places are Kathmandu and Pokhara. Filled with quintessential historical and cultural sites, a trip to both these awe-inspiring cities will be a great way to experience an authentic stay in Nepal. So, with that thought in mind, we have designed our Kathmandu Nagarkot Pokhara Tour.
