Route : Kathmandu - Chitwan - Pokhara - Sarangkot - Bandipur - Kathmandu - Nagarkot

The more than 5000 years old manuscripts explain Nepal as the “Land of Gods”. At the top of each hill, the god is believed to live. The vibrant city Kathmandu is famous by the title “The city of temples” which alone features seven UNESCO world heritage sites viz. Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath stupa, Basantapur (Kathmandu) durbar square, Swayambhunath stupa, Patan Durbar Square, Changu Narayan Temple and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. More than ten different religions are exercised in Nepal among which Hinduism and Buddhism are the major. Lumbini; the birthplace of Lord Buddha’ is located in the southern part of the country. It’s also a UNESCO world heritage site.
The mountains in the north, where the Hindu gods are believed to live, are yogic spots for the meditators. There are 1310 peaks of altitude more than 6000 m and eight of them viz. Mount Everest (8848 m), Mount Kanchenjunga (8586 m), Mount Lhotse (8516 m), Mount Makalu (8481 m), Mount Cho Oyu (8201 m), Mount Dhaulagiri I (8167 m), Mount Manaslu (8156 m) Mount Annapurna I (8091 m) are more than 8000 m in height. Hence Nepal is also called “The Land of Eight Thousandars”. Though the nation is not at an equal pace with the third world on modern development she has everything poured in her by nature.
The Chitwan National Park and the Sagarmatha National Park being included as the UNESCO world heritage sites is a clear indication of it. The Chitwan National Park is also called “the Second South Africa” for its richness in flora and fauna. The only home of one-horned rhino in the world is also a habitat of Royal Bengal Tiger and elephant. The tourist city Pokhara is a city of lakes which is also a gateway for trekking to the Annapurna massif. The presence of altitude based on three different regions viz. Himali (mountain) region, Pahadi (hilly) region and Terai (plain) region and human adaptation according to the places have brought variety in the customs, living, cropping, celebrating, etc. So Nepal is a country with unity in diversity. This package is for those who wish to indulge in the cultural and natural aspects of Nepal visiting the destinations viz. Kathmandu, Chitwan, Pokhara and Nagarkot.

The major attractions of the square are the 55 window palace, Nyatapola temple, Bhairav Nath temple and Golden Gate. Our next visit is Bouddhanath Stupa where we take lunch.

The canopy has 13 stages. The brick fence has 108 images of meditation Buddha. Pair of Buddha’s eyes in the stupa symbolizes the awareness. The stupa is a center of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. Later, we visit the Pashupatinath temple, located on the bank of Bagmati River, which is the biggest Hindu shrine of Nepal. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva; the creator of Yoga and dance. Saints visit here for the shelter to meet death and the cremation in the bank of the river which meets the holy Ganges River. Those who attain death in Pashupatinath are believed to be reborn as humans. The main temple has the gold plated copper roof and 4 silver doors which is the masterpiece of Hindu architecture. A huge golden statue of Nandi is in front of the main door. Only Hindus are allowed to enter the main temple but there are many different monuments available in the bank of the Bagmati River. The eastern bank of the river offers a complete view of the main temple. The western bank has Panch Deval (Five temples). The right bank of the river has spots for funeral procession.

After refreshment, you head for an hour boat ride in Phewa Lake and visit the Tal Barahi Temple; the temple of goddess Kali, inside the lake.

Day 07: Early sunrise view from Sarangkot, then proceed for half day sightseeing.

We drive to Sarangkot early in the morning for the sunrise view. Sarangkot (1600 m) is one of the hills in the periphery of Pokhara valley. It’s the vantage point to observe magnificent snowcapped Annapurna Himalayan range, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Phewa Lake, and the Pokhara valley. The sunrise from the apex of the mountain provides a stunning view. Sarangkot is also known for Paragliding, Ultra-light, Zip-flying, and Bungee jump. Returning from there to the Pokhara valley we go sightseeing in the places viz. Davi’s fall, Mahendra cave, Bindhyabasini temple, Gupteshwor cave, Seti Gorge and Bats cave. After the sightseeing, you’re driven to the hotel in Pokhara.
Davi’s fall is known in Nepali as ‘Patalo Chhango’ which means ‘Underworld Waterfall’. On July 31, 1961, while swimming, one of the Swiss couple Davi was drowned and 3 days later her body was recovered. Since then as per her father’s wish the place is named Davi’s fall. The fall seems to be falling inside a bottomless hole.
Gupteshwor Cave is the sacred pilgrimage dedicated to Lord Shiva; the god of the gods. The word Gupteshwor refers to the hidden god. The limestone cave has an iconic Shiva Linga inside and the underground water flow. Those suffering from medically incurable diseases come here and stay for a long to get cured.
Mahendra Cave has got its name in remembrance of the late king Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev. It was discovered by the shepherds in the 1950s close to Seti River. It’s an exclusive example off cave in Nepal containing stalactites and stalagmites. A statue of Adiyogi Shiva is inside the cave. The limestone dropping to the grounds generates electrical sparks making the cave more delightful. is a cave located close to the Seti River. It is a rare example of a cave system in Nepal containing stalagmites and stalactites. A statue of Hindu Lord Shiva can be found inside the cave. The cave gets its name from the former King Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev. This cave was discovered in the late 1950s by young shepherds of Pokhara. Since then it has remained one of the most visited places in Pokhara. The canal is completely dark with continuously dripping water overhead. The cave is full of limestone, which falls to the ground and continuously forms electrical sparks. Due to the darkness, artificial lighting is provided inside the cave.
Bat Cave is located 10 minutes’ walking distance away from Mahendra cave and is a natural habitat of bats. The entrance seems narrow but the cave is 25 m high and 150 m long. The inner walls of the cave have the images of gods 7 goddesses, elephant tusks, etc. It’s the shelter of 15,000 plus bats.
Bindhyabasini temple is located between Bagar and Old Bazaar of Pokhara. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Bhagawati and is the foremost Shaktipeeth and one of the oldest temples in Pokhara. The temple is in the Shikhara style and has a statue of goddess Bhagawati with 8 Bhujas (hands). It’s believed that one wish can be fulfilled by worshipping in the temple. Having more than one wish is taken as greed.
Seti George in a section of the holy Seti River. The word ‘Seti’ refers to ‘white’. The river is named so because its’ fed by the snow of Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail) and Annapurna Himalaya which pass through limestone because of which the water is white in the gorge. The river is famous for rafting which drives via Damauli along the greenish jungle to Trishuli River near the most sacred place Devaghat. Seti Gorge is a scenic place for photography enthusiasts.

Day 08: Drive from Pokhara to Bandipur (1030 m) - 03 hrs. drive

After breakfast, drive from Pokhara to Bandipur (1030 m) via Prithvi Highway which takes approximately 3 hours. Reaching to Dumre, we escaped from the highway and head towards Bandipur. Bandipur is the old historic town which is full of architecture, caves, incredible views and unspoiled landscapes. It's a vantage point to observe the panoramic Annapurna range, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Marsyangdi valley and Langtang. The civilization is full of Newari culture.

Day 09: Full day sightseeing in Bandipur

After breakfast, hike to the hilltop and observe the panoramic view of magnificent hills. The mountains that can be seen range from Dhaulagiri in the west and Langtang in the east. Plains of Chitwan and Manakamana in the east can also be seen. Then visit Siddha Gufa (the largest cave in Nepal), Patali Dwar (Door to heaven), Tundikhel, Martyrs Memorial, Magar Villages and so on. The fig trees present in Tundikhel are taken as the symbol of Brahma, Vishnu and hanuman. Since the morning fog can disturb the distant vision so afternoon or moment before sunset would be best to enjoy the view from the hilltop.

Day 10: Drive Bandipur – Kathmandu – Nagarkot – approx. 7 hrs. drive.

Leaving the beauty wherever it is, it’s a time to return to Kathmandu. There are two options viz. flight and drive transfer. Flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu is about 3o minutes’ and the drive for the same destination is about 6/7 hours’. Both the means are exciting as one provides an eagle view to the landscape and another provides a natural view of each place from proximity. Upon arrival in Kathmandu you’re taken to the Nagarkot; a hill station in Bhaktapur. Your overnight is in a hotel in Nagarkot.

Day 11: Free day In Nagarkot.

Though it’s named as a free day there’s so much to see. It’s just that you may not need guidance. Nagarkot is famous for its sunrise and sunset view. So wake up in the morning and enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the horizon over the hill. Also, enjoy a panoramic view of the Dhaulagiri Mountain range to the Kanchenjunga. Feel the greenery in the surroundings as well as the singing of the birds. On a clear day have a glance upon the Ganesh Himal (7,111 m), Langtang (7246 m) and Manaslu (8463 m). Set back and relax in Mother Nature.

Day 12: Final Departure

This day is mixed up with pleasant and unpleasant. You are leaving this beautiful Himalayan country and at the same time have a lot of things to show and tell with your circle. But we see you back in the future because ‘Naturally Nepal! Once is not enough’. Have a safe journey.

What to Wear

  •   Women:  We recommend women wear long, loose, conservative clothing such as sleeved shirts or trousers. For longer stays, consider purchasing a traditional sari, a kurta (a long shirt), or salwar and kameez (baggy pants). Scarves and shawls are worn throughout the year and can be fashionable as well as functional. Dressing in Indian attire shows cultural appreciation and will help avoid drawing unwanted attention.
  •   Men: Most Indians wear loose cotton shirts, polos, or button-ups with pants or jeans. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are uncommon, even during the hotter months.
  •   Traveling north or to the Himalayas: Bring warmer clothing like sweaters, long-sleeved shirts, or light jackets. Temperatures can dip down to freezing at times.
  •   Shoes: Bring durable shoes or sandals that can get dirty. Sandals, flip-flops, or flats are especially handy because they are easy to slip off when entering temples or homes.
  •   Places of Worship: Women should cover their heads, legs, and shoulders when entering a temple. Men should refrain from wearing shorts or they may not be permitted inside.
  •   Safaris: Early morning safaris can be chilly. We recommend wearing several layers including a sweater or jacket that can be removed as the day warms up. A thin hat or gloves may also help.

Passport and Visa

  •   Passport: Your passport is your most important travel document and must be valid for at least six months before arriving in India. If your passport is falling apart, make sure to replace it before coming.
  •   Visa: A visa is required for any visit to India. Contact your embassy or the Indian consulate to learn how to obtain one. If you are visiting India and a neighboring country, you must apply for a double or multiple entry visas from the Indian Embassy.
  •   Photocopies: Make sure to print and bring copies of your passport and visa with you. Store them separately in a secure place. Email yourself a scanned copy for easy access and be sure to leave a photocopy with someone at home. If your hotel has a safe, leave your passport and carry a photocopy with you. Also, be sure to bring a second form of identification.
  •   Lost or Stolen Passport: If something happens to your passport, immediately report the loss to the local police and get a written statement. Contact the nearest consulate for a replacement.


  •   Malaria and Dengue: All year long in areas below 2000 meters of altitude, there is a chance of contracting mosquito-borne malaria and dengue. You can prevent potential mosquito bites by wearing long clothes and frequently applying mosquito repellent. Make sure to consult with your doctor before coming.
  •   Travel Insurance: If you fall ill, treatment or transportation home can be extremely expensive. Travel insurance is highly recommended.
  •   Vaccinations: No vaccinations are required. However, if you are staying longer than 30 days, we recommend you receive the following shots: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, polio, diphtheria, rabies, measles, mumps, rubella, Japanese encephalitis, typhoid, yellow fever, and meningococcal.
  •   High Altitude Sickness: When visiting high altitude areas, be sure to ascend slowly and take enough time to acclimatize. You should be physically fit before venturing on any strenuous climbs.


  •   Currency: The national currency is the Indian rupee. Check the latest exchange rates before you arrive so you have a better idea of how much you are spending.
  •   Credit Cards: Credit cards are widely accepted in India, but keep in mind they’ll be of no use in remote areas. It’s helpful to carry a mix of cash and traveler’s checks.
  •   Bills: Be sure to always have smaller denominations of rupees (1s, 5s, 10s, 100s, etc.) as stores and rickshaw drivers will not always have exact change.

Eating & Drinking

  •   Eating: Try to consume cooked foods during your stay. Avoid street food, raw vegetables, and unpeeled fruit. Food in India can be incredibly spicy. So, be cautious when ordering hot curries.
  •   Drinking-Water: Drink only sealed bottled or filtered water. Avoid putting ice in your drinks as the water may be from the faucet.
  •   Alcohol: The legal drinking age is 25. It is uncommon and sometimes prohibited to drink alcohol in India, especially in sacred places.


  •   Haggling: Bargaining is commonplace in this part of the world and should be taken with humor and an open mind. Remember, you have no obligation to purchase something you have been haggling on. If you are uncomfortable with the price, politely decline and walk away.
  •   Respect: Locals work long, hard hours for only a few coins. So,  please make sure you always pay a fair price. The work of an Indian craftsman is just as valuable as the work of any other person.
  •   Touts: Some locals and public drivers may try to lead you into shops to receive a commission for your purchases. Should you not wish to visit a particular shop, firmly and politely state your disinterest and walk away.
  •   Responsibility: Epiconic Travel will not be held liable for any shopping purchases or shipping costs.

We recommend the following:
  •   Airport Assistance: 300 INR per transfer
  •   Restaurants: 5-10% of the total bill
  •   Baggage Handlers: 20 INR per piece of luggage
  •   Guide/Escort: 400-500 INR per day
  •   Drivers: 250-300 INR per day
If traveling in a group, please confer with your tour leader before tipping.  


  •   Show Respect: Taking pictures of day-to-day life is possible in most places. However, we request that you respect the privacy of those who do not wish to be photographed. Please ask when possible to avoid any uncomfortable situations. Furthermore, please respect the rules of religious institutions and check before taking photos in temples, mosques, and other places of worship.
  •   Being Photographed: Strangers may request to have their picture taken with you even if you have never met before. While this may seem strange, remember that as a foreigner, you are just as exotic to them as they are to you. If you feel uncomfortable having your picture taken, politely decline and walk away.
  •   Meet the People: Take time to get to know a person before snapping their photos. Most likely, this will make them more willing to have their photo taken.
  •   Security: Note that photography is strictly prohibited in and around airports, military installations, and other sensitive areas. Please check for notices before taking photos.
  •   Photograph Scams: Some people may approach you and ask to have their picture taken. While this may seem like an excellent photo opportunity, don't oblige them unless you are willing to pay the fee they request afterward. Be especially wary of snake charmers and people in costume who earn a living this way. It's best to avoid these situations by politely declining and moving away.
  •   Photograph Journeys: Contact Epiconic Travel to learn more about our special photography journeys.


  •   Beggars: You will encounter a large number of beggars around temples and tourist areas. It may seem distressing, but in India, they form an integral part of the alms-giving process, which has roots in religious practices.
  •   Keep in Mind: Beggars who congregate around hotels and monuments do so because they can earn more than the average daily wage by targeting sympathetic foreign visitors.
  •   How to Give: Epiconic Travel recommends you do not give money to beggars, especially children. Giving money or small gifts encourages begging and future harassment of other travelers. If you wish to help alleviate their suffering, please let us know and we will put you in touch with a registered charity.


  •   Spiritual Offerings: Sometimes locals who look like holy men will try to put a Bindi (red dot) on your forehead or tie yarn around your wrist before requesting payment. If you don't wish to pay for this service, politely decline any attempt to do so and remove yourself from the situation.
  •   Handshakes: A simple handshake can quickly turn into a palm reading or an offer to paint your hand with henna. Instead, give the traditional "Namaste" prayer greeting when encountering strangers. This also conveys respect.
  •   No Such Thing as Free: You may be told some service or a small gift is free only to be asked for payment or a "donation" later. Be smart and use good judgment.

Respecting the Culture

  • Keep in mind that India may not have the same standards of living or traditions as your home country. Please be respectful of these differences and embrace everything that India has to offer.
  • Please show respect by refraining from public displays of affection, coarse language, and other inappropriate behavior.


  • In general, follow the same basic ecological rules you have in your country while traveling.
  •   Water: Pure water in India is a luxury, so please use it sparingly. In remote areas, stick to neutral soap to avoid any negative environmental impact.
  •   Batteries: Return home with any dead batteries as India lacks a dedicated battery recycling system.
  •   Camping: Campgrounds should remain clean after your departure to minimize human impact.
  •   Keep Your Volume Down: While visiting nature reserves, please make sure to keep quiet and respect the wildlife.
  •   Trash: Please properly dispose of any garbage by placing it in a wastebasket.
  •   Animals: For health and safety reasons, keep your distance and avoid contact with any animals you encounter.

Traveling by Train

  •   Delays: More often than not, your train will be delayed; sometimes by more than an hour. Relax and rest assured you will make it to your destination. Always assume your train will arrive on time and show up at least 30 minutes beforehand.
  •   Food: Resist the temptation to purchase meals on the train or at the railway station as it may upset your stomach. Make sure any food you buy is packaged and only drink bottled water. Also, it is best to take the skin off the fruit before eating it.
  •   Toilet Types: Indian trains offer squat and seated bathroom facilities. It is smart to bring your toilet paper and hand sanitizer in the off chance the bathrooms run out. Train toilets empty directly down onto the track so be courteous and only use the bathroom while the train is in motion.
  •   Insects: It’s not uncommon to see insects around the bathroom areas and trash receptacles. A train worker can spray insect repellent if you encounter any bugs in your cabin.
  •   Open Doors: Most Indian trains allow passengers to open the entry doors while the train is in motion. Be cautious when passing them on your way to the bathroom area. Epiconic Travel recommends you avoid venturing near the open doors.
  •   Epiconic Provisions: To make your train experience even more enjoyable, Epiconic Travel provides clients with their own linen sheets, pillow covers, snacks, and basic toiletries.

Women Travelers

  •   Clothes: See the “What to Wear” section on page one.
  •   Swimsuits: Normal swimwear is fine at beach resorts. Otherwise, wear long shorts and a t-shirt when swimming in public.
  •   Jewelry: Avoid wearing expensive-looking jewelry and/or giving off the impression of wealth.
  •   Taxis: Though Epiconic Travel will provide a driver for your journey, be cautious when venturing out on your own. Avoid taking cabs home alone at night and never agree on having another male in the car with you besides the driver.
  •   Common Misconceptions: It is common for Indians to direct their conversations toward males, even if questioned by a woman. Men do this to show the woman respect since speaking to her can be perceived as flirtatious.
  •   Staring: As a foreigner, you will naturally stand out. Although people will take extra notice of you, it is usually a harmless curiosity. Still, it is always best to travel with a male or in a group and make safe travel decisions.
  •   Be Home Before Dark: Avoid walking around town at night, especially if you are alone or in an isolated area.


  • India is home to over 400 living languages that vary from region to region. English is a second language for most people and some do not speak it at all. Remember to be patient and avoid using slang in conversation. This will make communicating easier and less frustrating.


  • There are numerous Wi-Fi spots in major cities and many hotels have Internet. Be aware that not all Internet areas will have a broadband connection.

Making Phone Calls

  •   Cell Phones: There is cell phone coverage throughout India. Be sure to check with your service provider before calling, texting, or web browsing to avoid expensive roaming charges.
  •   Prepaid Phone Cards: These are available throughout India though you can also purchase one before you arrive. Phone cards are generally more cost-effective than using your mobile phone.
  •   Country Code: +91
