Incentive Tour in Nepal

Draped along the spine of the Himalayas, Nepal is a land of sublime scenery, time-worn temples, and some of the best hiking trails on earth. It is a poor country, but it is rich in scenic splendor and cultural treasures. The kingdom has long exerted a pull on the imagination of travelers from near and far. It is the kind of country that lingers in your dreams long after you leave it. This is why so many travelers are drawn back to Nepal, armed the second time round with a greater appreciation of its natural and cultural complexity, a stout pair of walking boots and a desire for sculpted calf muscles!

ITINERARY IN DETAIL
Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu,
* Kathmandu is the capital and largest city of Nepal.
It has a population of 1.5 million and is located at an altitude of 1300m in the Kathmandu Valley. The city is named after an ancient temple called “Kaasthamandap” which means “wooden shelter”. Expect a “sensory overload” when you arrive. The city is crowded, noisy and polluted. Traffic is crazy and the noise is incessant as vehicles horn loudly while driving madly through congested & narrow streets. Kathmandu has an amazing historical, cultural and artistic heritage. There are seven UNESCO World Heritage sites located in the Kathmandu including the three Durbar Squares at Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Kathmandu has always been a travelers’ Mecca - although the tourist profile has changed. In the 1960s, the typical visitor was a free-spirited hippie looking for an alternative lifestyle whilst searching for enlightenment. In the 2000s, the typical visitor is a relatively well-heeled Gore-Tex clad traveler looking for a different holiday experience in an unusual & exotic location. Instead of cheap food & cannabis, the modern tourist is more interested in shopping, photography and a nice latte / lemon cheesecake in one of Kathmandu’s up-market cafes and restaurants.
* Drive to Dhulikhel, Beyond the Kathmandu Valley, there are two popular places to view the distant Himalayan Mountains. Nagarkot and Dhulikhel are located 32 km from Kathmandu. Both offer views of the Himalayas at sunrise. While the road to Nagarkot is steep & winding, the road to Dhulikhel is a relatively easier drive. Dhulikhel also provides an opportunity for the visitor to observe village life in a typical Nepali countryside. Check into Dhulikhel Lodge Resort
* Lunch at the Resort. After lunch, take a leisurely 2-3 hours village walk to 1000 stone staircase
* Barbeque Dinner & stay overnight at Dhulikhel Lodge Resort.


Day 02: DHULIKHEL – KATHMANDU – POKHARA
* Wake-up call. Go to vantage point to see the Himalayas at sunrise.
* Breakfast
* Depart Resort for Kathmandu Domestic Airport
* Flight to Pokhara, arrival in Pokhara – Lunch at Moon Dance Restaurant.

After lunch, drive to Sarangkot and trek down to Lake Side. Trekking is Nepal’s no. 1 tourist attraction. Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to do the 15-21 days Everest Base Camp Trek or the 16-18 days Annapurna Circuit Trek. These treks are quite arduous for most people. You need stamina and endurance to cope with 7-8 hours of daily trekking which will include steep ascents and descents. The half-day Sarangkot-Lake Side trek will allow you to experience trekking in Nepal under relatively pleasant circumstances. Our trekking/camping experience is organized by Sherpa Trekking Service – they have lots of experience organizing treks to Everest & the Annapurnas. If you love this experience, you can come back for the 15-21 days ultimate Himalayan trekking experience. Sarangkot offers the most panoramic views of the Annapurna Himalayan peaks from Dhaulagiri (8,167m) to Machhapuchhare (6,997m). On a clear day, you will be rewarded with superb panoramic views of the western Himalayas. Viewing the Annapurnas from Sarangkot under perfect conditions has been described as a “religious experience”.
* Transfer to Hotel after arrival in Lake Side Area.
* Dinner with cultural show and stay overnight at Hotel in Pokhara.


Day 03: In POKHARA
* Wake up call and breakfast,
* Pokhara is Nepal’s 2nd largest and most picturesque city.

Machhapuchhare (“Fish Tail Mountain”) & the other Annapurna massif reflected on the serene waters of the lake. Life is quiet, civilized and enjoyable at the Lodge. On the other hand, the village on the lakeshore is full of travelers eating, drinking, shopping and reverberating to the sound of “om mani padme hum”.
* Visit following places with our tour guide;
Davi’s Fall;
Locally known as Patale Chhango (Hell’s Fall), Devi’s fall (also known as Devin’s or David’s) is an awesome waterfall lying about 2 km south-west of Pokhara airport on the highway to Tansen. An interesting modern legend says that a foreigner named David was skinny dipping in the Pardi Khola (river) when the floodgates of the dam were opened, sweeping him into an underground passage beneath the fall, never to be seen again.
Gupteshwar Cave; Gupteshwar Cave or Gupreswar Gupha, considered sacrosanct by the locals, is 2 km from Pokhara airport. The 3km long cave has some large hall-like rooms and some passages where one is forced to crawl. A Shivalinga, phallic symbol if Hindu Lord Shiva, is preserved in the cave.
The Phewa Lake; Phewa Lake, majestic in stretch and beauty, is the second largest lake of Nepal. Foremost attraction in the lake is the pagoda style temple which holds the shrine of Barahi or Water Goddess. Another attraction is the amazing image of Mt. Machhapuchhre and Annapurna in the clear water of the lake. One is advised to view the south-eastern side of Phewa Lake for it has the best views. Tourists can also indulge in activities like fishing and canoeing. Several verities of fish can be found in the lake. Nearby forest is the residence of numerous animals and birds.
Begnas Lake; Begnas Lake, the second largest lake of Pokhara Valley, is 13 km away from Pokhara. The lake is a nice destination for the tourists who want to pass some time in seclusion. They can indulge in activities like boating and fishing. Nearby jungle is the residence of more than 150 species of birds. Water fowls can be observed from the northern part of the lake.
Barahi Temple; This is the most important religious monument in Pokhara. Built almost in the middle of Phewa Lake, the two storied pagoda is dedicated to the boar manifestation of Ajima, the protector’s deity representing the female force Shakti. Devotees can be seen, especially on Saturdays, carrying male animals and fowl across the lake to be sacrificed to the deity.
World Peace Pagoda; The pagoda is a massive Buddhist stupa and is situated on top of a hill on the southern shore of Phewa lake. Besides being an impressive sight in itself, the shrine is a great vantage point which offers spectacular views of the Annapurna range and Pokhara city. You can get there by crossing the lake by boat and then hiking up the hill.
Himalayan Views; The magnificent Annapurna panorama that’s visible on the northern skyline of Pokhara is quite incredible. The main peaks are Annapurna I to IV and the beautiful Machhapuchhare (or Fishtail Mountain, so named after its twin peaks). Besides these, you can also see the Himchuli, Varahashikhar, Gangapurna and other peaks. The mountains will probably be hidden in the clouds between April and September. A nice evening on the banks of Fewa Lake with the mountain range as the backdrop is what Pokhara is really about!

In a famous hunting expedition, King George V and his son Edward VIII managed to slaughter 39 tigers and 18 rhinos in a single blood-soaked afternoon. Unfortunately, habitat loss and poachers continue to decimate the number of tigers and rhinos. Today, there are less than 80 tigers and 500 rhinos left in the Park.

Pashupatinath Temple, In October 1979 Pashupati area was declared as the World Heritage Site by UNESCO, with its astonishing architectural beauty, stands as a symbol of faith, religion, culture and tradition. Regarded as the most sacred temple of Hindu Lord Shiva in the world, Pashupatinath Temple’s existence dates back to 400 A.D. It is a pagoda style two tiered golden roof with exquisitely carved four silver doors containing in its sanctum a phallic idol with four faces facing each direction and the other fifth one is looking up towards the zenith. A temple dedicated to Shiva was constructed at the present site by Lichhavi King Supushpa Verma according to an ancient chronicles. However the present temple is claimed to have been built by King Bhupatindra Malla in 1697 AD. This most sacred abode of Shiva, who is the God of the gods- Mahadev-, merits a visit by all Hindus, at least once in a lifetime, to be truly blessed and cleansed. It is believed that pilgrimage to the four dhams like Dwarika, Kedar, Rameshwor and Jaganath of India becomes meaningful only after a final darshan of Pashupatinath and by taking a holy dip in the Bagmati River and conducting a proper puja. There are temples of other Hindu deities in Pashupati premises like Bhairavnath, Vasukinag, Parbati Temple, Ram Mandir, Vishworup, Gorakhnath, Kirateshwor temple and dozens of temples dedicated to different gods and goddess. Legend has it that a cow would frequently escape from its herd and offer milk on a Jyotirlinga which denotes the point where the temple stands today. It is said that certain cowherd much to his surprise found the self generated Jyotirlinga when he dug the spot where the cow would give milk. The spot immediately became the center of worship that has been continued till today. A considerable part of the temple vicinity is converted to rest and prayer areas. Behind the temple on the banks of Bagmati is a crematorium for Hindus. At the other end of Pashupatinath Temple area is the temple of Guheshwori dedicated to Shiva’s consort Parbati also known as Satidevi. There is also a deer park at the back of the temple across the Bagmati. One may also observe Sadhus smeared with ashes and dressed in lion clothes and the Hindu Brahmins offering Tika and blessing to the visitors.

The Bouddhanath stupa, also called by many as Khasti Chitya, is one of the oldest stupas in the country. The claims made in various religious and literacy texts regarding the erectionn of the stupa are varied and conflicting.

Likewise, at the bottom level, it is surrounded with the praying wheels embossed with the famous mantra Om Mani Padme Hum fixed in more than hundred and forty niches.

It is believed that it was founded in the third century B.C. by the famous Buddhist emperor, Ashoka, who visited the town while on a pilgrimage from Northern India and built four stupas that enclosed the centre of the old town.

Not only because of its famous carved peacock windows but also due to its museum, Bhaktapur is the centre of traditional Nepalese wood carving. Compared to other royal cities in Patan and Kathmandu, Bhaktapur is the most original and is without a doubt the most historically authentic. We will visit the Durbar Square (palace square) with its array of temples overlooked by the Palace of Fifty-five Windows built by King Bhupatindra Malla. We will also visit the Taleju Temple which is the best example of Pagoda style structure in Nepal. It stands majestically on five terraces, on each of which stands a pair of figures.
