Run by: Selective Asia
Reference number: Ancient Cities of Nepal
Nepal is synonymous with mountain trekking and boasts some of the most impressive, challenging hikes in the world, but there’s so much more to this land-locked, Himalayan country then trekking. Culture and religion are the bedrock of Nepal and our Ancient Cities of Nepal itinerary delves deeper into the country’s rich, ancient heritage.
Over the course of eleven days you’ll visit numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites, travel to all three former royal cities of the Kathmandu Valley, spend time with a local family for an insight into everyday life, and stay overnight in a monastery. Spectacular scenery will€company your journey. On your return to Kathmandu at the end of the holiday you’ll have a much greater understanding of Nepalese life and the history of this welcoming land.
