Cultural Village Tour (Standard)

Join us in this 8 nights & 9 days trip and experience Nepali people's rural lifestyle untouched by modernism and get mingled with their culture, beliefs and rituals. This village tour begins from Kathmandu itself with the observation of ancient art, architecture and Newari culture. Newars are the early settlers of Nepal who are well known for their artistry, festivals, culture, food and aesthetic taste. The credit of creation of most of the world heritage sites of Kathmandu valley including Patan Durbar Square goes to Newars. After observing ancient artistry and scenic beauty of Kathmandu valley, Khokana and Bungmati, we head towards Bandipur to enjoy spectacular views of Himalayas and Marsyangdi Valley.

In Pokhara, you can lose yourself in the beauty of lovely lakes, Himalayan scenery, temples and ancient monuments. After one day sightseeing tour of Tansen, we drive to Lumbini, the Buddhist pilgrimage site, where Gautam Buddha- apostle of peace and the light of Asia, was born in 623 B.C. In the afternoon, we visit many historical sites including museums, stupas, fort gates, old city walls and moat and observe the remaining traces of Buddha and his philosophy in Tilaurakot where Lord Buddha spent 29 years of his life.

Authentic Experience of Rural Nepal

This was my second visit to Nepal, still startling and as good as the first. There is so much to explore and you have less time. During this visit we went to the “real Newari villages” of Bungmati and Khokana and learned about their colorful history, unique culture and olden lifestyle. Besides the poor sanitation and living condition of the people, the vast stretches of cultivated mustard field, the greenery of the hills and the snowy peaks were very inviting and truly majestic. We tasted the Newari food (Haans ko Choela and Chyaang) which still linger in my pallet. I would love to try more but I had limited time. I would surely go back again in the near future to try something new.

Real Insight into Village Life

The village tour was great; I saw rural Nepal and experienced the life outside the cities. The walk via the narrow gullis of Bandipur was full of discoveries and more often I got lost and my guide would find me every time. The people were warm and friendly; we really had time to interact with them and got a chance to look close into their unique cultural life. The ambiance was truly delightful and made our trip a lot more fun. The bonus was a spectacular panorama of the entire Annapurna Range, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and Langtang from a natural view tower of Bandipur.
