This short journey is designed for the modern traveler who seeks to experience the majestic beauty of Nepal, but has time constraints that only allow for a one-week break from the demands of the office, home, or family. Nepal is an enthralling destination where you’ll find a fascinating juxtaposition between the hustle and bustle of the capital and the supreme peace and majesty of Mt. Everest. Spend your first two days of this journey in Kathmandu, where you’ll bargain for goods at the bazaar and interact with locals. On your third day enjoy a sightseeing mountain flight to Mt. Everest. You’ll be accompanied by a Sherpa guide who’s summited Everest and he’ll point out the routes as well as regale you with stories of the world’s most alluring adventure. Pokhara’s historic sites and bazaar are next up and you’ll spend two days here before returning to Kathmandu for a final look at the city’s ancient temples, as well as a visit to a rug weaving center for Tibetan refugees.

You need just seven days to experience this journey, but you’ll come back with a lifetime of memories.

Activity Level

This is an easy to moderate touring trip. Please note that roads conditions in Nepal leave a lot to be desired and the traffic can appear to be wild and unregulated. Sightseeing excursion can be exhausting and long (6-7 hours) thus giving the tour a “moderate” rating. Bathroom facilities during sight seeing excursions and long drives are frequently nonexistent and limited to the facilities at a local restaurant, which could be just an “out-house.”
