Overview of Kathmandu Pokhara Tour

Peregrine Treks and Tours welcome you to experience Nepal’s most popular and beautiful destinations. It is five nights and six days Kathmandu Pokhara Tour package. In this package, you will have a lifetime opportunity to experience the diverse culture, food, lifestyle, wildlife, and natural resources. Further, you will enjoy favorable weather conditions offered by the two cities, namely Kathmandu and Pokhara.


Kathmandu Pokhara Tour Highlights

  • City tours in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
  • Opportunity to see cultural and geographical diversities.
  • Witness historical architectures, sculptures, temples, etc.
  • Witness the beautiful Himalayan range of Nepal in a relaxing environment.
  • Experience adventure sports and activities.

The first destination of 5 Night 6 Days Kathmandu Pokhara Tour Package is the city of Nepal – Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, you will go sightseeing in three ancient cities named Kathmandu Durbar Square. It is a UNESCO world heritage site where you can closely monitor Nepal’s ancient history, rich in architecture and culture, through the wood and stone carvings, pagoda temples, palaces, etc.

Then after, you will witness the other UNESCO world heritage sites such as Boudhanath Stupa, Swayamnbhunath Stupa, popularly known as Monkey Temple, and Pashupati Nath temple. All of these venues portray the religious harmony established in Nepal for centuries. Also, the spectacular architecture will grab your attention and set beautiful photographic moments.

The city of Paradise – Pokhara

From Kathmandu, you will head towards Pokhara Tour by land. If you want to avoid the 8 hours long drive, you can opt for an air route. Pokhara is the second biggest city in Nepal after Kathmandu. However, it is lesser busy and more peaceful since the population is far lesser. The city offers various picturesque destinations and spectacular mountain views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre (Fishtail), etc.

Similarly, view of the early sunrise from Sarangkot and sightseeing at several amazing caves (Mahendra Cave/Bat Cave), and boating in Phewa Lake are moments worth experiencing and sharing. Other attractions are Davis Falls, mountain and cultural museums, and temples.

For adventure lovers, there is provision for Paragliding, Bungee Jumping, Zip Flyer, Mountain Biking, rafting, etc. At night, you can relax with good food and drinks in any restaurants and bars situated on the lakeside. If you want to extend your Kathmandu Pokhara Tour, you can extend your Chitwan Tour Package by two days.

    Road Conditions and Safety:

    In most of Nepal’s areas, roads are poorly maintained and lack safety features. Especially, hill roads are vulnerable to monsoon season resulting in blockade due to landslides and erosions. Such conditions cause significant numbers of accidents and fatalities. Traffic jam is a big problem faced by people in major cities. Various incidents of violation of traffic laws have been registered in Kathmandu and other major cities. Many drivers are not adequately trained and licensed yet to drive on the streets. Be aware and avoid getting into such a vehicle.

    To drive to two-wheeler or four-wheeler motor vehicle in Nepal, you should have an appropriate license for the particular vehicle. Otherwise, you will be punished according to traffic laws. We suggest you not expose yourself to any problems during your stay in Nepal.

    Nighttime Travel:

    The streets outside the Kathmandu valley lack proper lights, and road conditions are not in good condition. So it is safe if you avoid traveling during the night time out of Kathmandu.

    Motorcycle Travel:

    Know the speed limit of riding bikes and apply safety measures while riding a motorcycle in Nepal. Fatalities from motorcycle accidents have risen dramatically all over Nepal in recent years. Never forget to wear helmets and safety gear, and do not ride bikes carrying more than one person.

    Buses:

    If you need to travel via bus, we suggest you choose day travel rather than night buses due to abnormal road conditions in most rural areas. Long-distance travel could be exhausting, and you might want to hop onto the roofs of buses for some adventure. Never travel on dangerous ceilings to avoid accidents, and traffic police as roof travel are against the traffic laws.

    Taxis:

    Although taxi rides are much more expensive than buses, they could be safer and more convenient. All taxis have a meter, but taxi drivers usually do not charge you based on the meter. You better negotiate taxi fare before you step onto their taxi; otherwise, you could be overcharged. If you feel like being cheated, contact freely to file a complaint to the traffic police on the street nearby or the local police station.

    Pedestrian Travel:

    You might not find a separate lane for pedestrians except a pedestrian bridge. Usually, a person should be careful enough to walk safely on the side of a road, follow zebra crossings, and use a pedestrian bridge to cross a busy highway. Otherwise, there are several cases of pedestrians facing traffic fatalities in Nepal.
