Nepal Tour with short Trek is a short trip to explore Nepal in its entirety, from the countryside to the city and from the city to the Himalayas, passing all the nooks and crannies that traveler wants to explore. It is a unique program developed by Nepal Tour and Trekking Service P. Ltd for travelers who prefer to trek and tour in one package.
This itinerary will be handy for all travelers who want to visit Nepal's rural and urban settlements. Nepal is a culturally diverse country with different ethnic territories. It will also help the researchers observe Nepal's rural life and the gigantic Himalayas.
As the itinerary for ten days will visit the city life and observe the fusion of religion and culture of city dwellers versus village life. Visit the historical monuments of the capital and monitor near the Kathmandu Valley. The program deviates towards the Pokhara, where you can see the difference between the two cities.
Finally, you will take a short trek in the Annapurna conservation area to see nature at its best. It will go through the village, through the hills, rivers, forests, various suspension bridges, and finally to Ghorepani and Poon Hill to see the beautiful sunrise and many mountain ranges, including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhere, and many more mountains. From Poon Hill, you can see Nepal's gigantic Himalayas, which are over 8000 meters high. The mountain range of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Machhapuchre (Fishtail), and many more will attract every trekker with its beauty.
The trip is not only focused on the Himalayas, as the itinerary is more research-based. Here you will see the detail of rural and urban life, how people lived in the mountains without roads and other facilities. Their daily activities and hospitality towards travelers will fascinate you a lot.
Upon arrival at the International Airport, our representative will meet, greet and transfer you to your respective hotel. After checking in at the hotel, our staff will provide a short briefing about the program.
After Check-in at the hotel and getting fresh up, you can explore the famous tourist area of Kathmandu, namely Thamel and Kathmandu Durbar Square. In the evening, we will offer Nepalese cuisine in an authentic Nepalese restaurant with a cultural program. Overnight stay in our respective hotel.
After breakfast, depart for a city tour. Kathmandu is a city of temples. The tour will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage sites as following.
Pashupatinath temple is a world-renowned Hindu sanctuary and one of the most important pilgrimage destinations globally, located along the sacred Bagmati River. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. You can see the body is cremated in the cremation process, an essential part of Hindu culture.
Buddhist temples and stupas are the most visited monumental sites. Boudhanath stupa, about 5 km east of Thamel, Kathmandu Durbar Square, located in the heart of Kathmandu, preserves medieval stone and wood crafts of the Newari and the abode of the virgin goddess Kumari and Swayambhunath Stupa is some of them. The medieval arts and architectures are unique. Return to the hotel and have a rest. Overnight stay at the hotel.
After having a delicious breakfast at your hotel, our tour guide will drive you to Patan and Bhaktapur to visit the ancient palace. Compared to Kathmandu, it is quieter, less frenetic, and more Buddhist. Patan is called the city of arts for its incredible wood carvings. But the people of Patan call it Lalitpur, a city of beauty. Patan is listed in a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has its royal palace with gilded doors and windows. Patan Durbar Square is not a very large area, but it is a concentrated mass of temples. It is all arranged regularly, so it doesn't feel crowded. It displays the most impressive Newari architecture seen in Nepal.
Bhaktapur, the city of devotees, has many names and even more facets. Formerly also known as Bhadgaon, Khwopa, and Khwopinggram, this ancient Newar city is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This city, once an independent kingdom, has a fantastic Durbar Square with its 55-windowed palace. Numerous temples surround the square with exquisite stone carvings of animals and idols. From there, there is the option to travel around the city to other religious sites with temples. Most likely, your final destination will be the impressive Nyatpole temple square.
Bhaktapur is famous for its pottery. The city still retains a medieval atmosphere with its winding houses, cobblestone streets, narrow alleys, and traditional squares. The countryside begins just outside the city walls. During harvest time, the entire potter's square is full of rice
In April 2015, Nepal was rocked by a massive earthquake. The damage to the Durbar squares in the valley was dramatic. Some temples were destroyed, others damaged. However, most of the treasures are being restored to their former glory. In the case of some temples, restoration work will take several years.
After visiting Bhaktapur, you will go to Nagarkot for the sunset, a hill station, but rather a village, located at an altitude of 2100 meters above sea level. From the top of Nagarkot, you can see the vast snow-capped Himalayan ranges. Overnight stay in our respective hotel.

Travel insurance is vital for all guests wishing to travel with us. Travel insurance should cover both medical and emergency evacuation expenses.

If you do not have insurance while trekking in Nepal, not only will your life be in real danger, but it will end up costing you your health and your bank account.

Although tipping is not mandatory, it is a great way to show your appreciation to the people who helped you enrich your vacation experience. It all depends on how satisfied and happy you are with the services. There is no set amount, but many of our clients give a tip of 10% of the trip's total price.
No, you cannot purchase travel insurance in Nepal.
We strongly recommend that all of our clients arrange travel insurance before booking any of our trips. If you get illness or injury during trekking in the mountains, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is high. Therefore, purchasing travel insurance is highly recommended for anyone signing up for one of our trips. However, you should care when selecting a policy, as some insurance companies make exceptions for adventure travel.
Before purchasing insurance, read the fine print and make sure your insurance company knows your itinerary and agrees to cover all activities during your trip. For example, if you plan a trekking or climbing (mountaineering) expedition in the Himalayas, your insurance should cover emergency air/helicopter rescue, including medical expenses. For a group trip in an urban area, air/helicopter rescue coverage is mandatory. When you book a trip with us, you must send us a copy of your insurance policy (e.g., your insurance certificate) or bring it with you when you travel.
Most of our guides speak English, which is a common means of communication. Besides, they are trained, experienced and know the areas very well.

We made a 12 day trip to Nepal with
Nepal Tour and trekking service P. Ltd including Kathmandu, Pokhara, Ghorepani
Poon Hill Trek, and Chitwan. I can't say enough about our experience. Our first-time
Trek in Nepal with Mr. Kishor, Tour Manager, took outstanding care of us
throughout the trip. Even before we left our country, they were super
responsive to our questions.
They were professional, made sure we knew the information we needed and organized everything so our stay was stress-free. For the low price of the tour, the hotels we used were fine, and, not knowing what to expect, Chitwan was an unexpected delight.
Throughout the hike, it was tough, and we had all kinds of weather, but our guide Shiva and his team took care of us and allowed our group of ten to each hike at their fitness level. The porters were great and took care of our large backpacks, and even after hiking all day had smiles and energy to enjoy the evenings.
My wife is not very physical, either, so this hike was a little test. She loved the experience, and now we are thinking about doing Everest Base Camp or something similar; if we do, it will be with Kishor and his professional team.

In January 2017, we did a 10-day
family tour of Nepal with Nepal Tour and Trekking Service P. Ltd. We visited
Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, and Poonhill.
Everything was perfect. Perfect organization, cheap but comfortable hotels, good care, competent guides, and all this at a relatively modest price. The company's organizers - the young men, who have gone the way from the simple carriers to the masters of the flourishing tourist enterprise, were delightful to us. They understand very well what is necessary for the tourist and they offer it. I hope that you will help organize another trip to Nepal.
by Julie Heilmann, Greenland
My friend and I recently booked a
10-day Nepal trip with short hiking. I cannot speak highly enough of this
company. Kishor, who briefed us on arrival, took us out to dinner at the end of
our trip and made sure we all have a comfortable journey.
Rupesh, our fantastic tour guide who spoke excellent English, had a great sense of humor while remaining professional at all times and took care of us throughout the trip, and our driver, who drove us safely through the crazy traffic to Pokhara, Chitwan, and around Kathmandu.
Overall a great experience. Incredible, unforgettable tour, thanks to all involved.
by Mario Schwab, Germany
Wonderful tour in Nepal
A fantastic tour through many parts of beautiful Nepal. Everything was wonderfully organized and facilitated. Our hotels were great, our driver was excellent and had an almost new car, and we all had confidence in his ability to navigate the roads and with other drivers. Above all, we all agreed that our guide, Shusma, was fantastic.
Shusma managed to keep us on schedule without pressuring us and let us stop when we needed to. Her knowledge of the places, geography, people, and even the botanical information was incredible; even stopping to point out local wildflowers, their names, their use in herbal medicine, and local culture was excellent.
Your calm demeanor and willingness to make sure everyone is well and happy, along with your motto of "good people, with good thoughts," was inspiring. Congratulations, Shusma, and keep up the excellent work. You are a real asset to the trip company. As one of the other trip participants said, "You were our best tour guide."
by Sophie Dostie, France
We were a group of seven on a volunteering trip to Kathmandu for few days. Kishor and his team personally welcomed us and took care of all our needs from airport transfers, hotel booking, meeting arrangements, translation, etc. We highly recommend Nepal Tour and Trekking Service P. Ltd. Kishor and his team are very professional, friendly, helpful, and go out of their way to make your trip memorable.
by Holly Corbett, Australia
It was the trip of a lifetime! Everything was exceptionally well organized and taken care of. Mr. Kishor was beneficial before the trip while I was in Kathmandu and made sure we had the best experience possible. Bishnu and Naresh are highly knowledgeable and excellent local guides to create an environment where all the guests treated our porters as part of the trekking family, which was not the norm with other trekking groups. It helped to create a solid team for the Trek.
