As mentioned in the Kathmandu, Pokhara & Chitwan Round tour itinerary, we’ll step out for a thorough Kathmandu Valley sightseeing. The valley is dotted with quite a few cultural heritage sites, so we’ll only go to the must-visit ones. Starting from Monkey Temple(Swaymbhunath Stupa), one of the important Buddhist Stupa, we’ll slowly move to other heritage sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square and Bouddhanath Stupa.
Ticking the Kathmandu city’s heritage sites, we’ll go for the remaining heritage sites of the Kathmandu Valley that lie in Lalitpur and Bhaktapur city.

Following a memorable day in Kathmandu, we’ll turn to the west, where Pokhara is located around 204 KM away. It will be a scenic drive of 5-6hrs upon a winding highway through the beautiful landscape of Nepal.
On the other part of the day, we’ll reach Pokhara and freshen up a little bit at our hotel. Then we went around the Lakeside of Phewa Lake, which is just by the city. We’ll use this time to enjoy the lake’s view, boat riding in the lake, and hangouts in the area. For the night, we’ll get back to the hotel in Pokhara.
In the beautiful vicinity of Pokhara, we’ll wake early before sunrise to go to a hilltop called Sarangkot(1,519m/4,984feet). For that, we will drive asap to the place just to observe the breathtaking sunrise, Annapurna Region’s mountains view, and the sight of the Pokhara valley too. That particular view from Sarangkot will keep us amazed for a while.
Afterward, we’ll drop back to our hotel from the top for breakfast and to begin the full day of Pokhara Sightseeing. Popular places like Mahendra Cave, Davis Fall, World Peace Pagoda, International Mountain Museum, and others will be on our to-visit list for the day. While we tour Pokhara, the Phewa Lake and Macchapuchre( Mt Fishtail) will keep on teasing us the whole day. This day full of touring will end back in the hotel of Pokhara.

Now is the time when we’ll be able to explore the wildness of the first national park of Nepal. The first choice place for jungle safari in Nepal, Chitwan National Park, is home to many distinct and endangered animals. We’ll go on an elephant ride or jeep ride deep in the forest of the park.
