Kathmandu and Pokhara are two of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal and is known for its rich cultural heritage, ancient temples, and bustling city life. Pokhara, on the other hand, is a scenic city located on the banks of Phewa Lake and is surrounded by the Annapurna mountain range.

A Kathmandu and Pokhara tour typically begins with a visit to Kathmandu’s famous Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses several temples and palaces. Other popular attractions in Kathmandu include the Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple, the Pashupatinath Temple, and the Boudhanath Stupa.

After exploring the cultural and historical sites of Kathmandu, the tour moves on to Pokhara, where visitors can enjoy scenic views of the mountains, go boating on Phewa Lake, and visit the World Peace Pagoda. Other popular activities in Pokhara include trekking, paragliding, and white-water rafting.

Overall, a Kathmandu and Pokhara tour offers a unique blend of culture, history, and natural beauty, making it an unforgettable experience for travelers.

Pokhara may not seem far from Kathmandu (the cities are only 126 miles / 204 km apart), but the Nepali terrain and road quality make for a very long drive. That’s why many travelers opt to choose fly.

Fantastic Experience! Nepal tours tailored the holidays exactly to my needs and my short time constraints. A very knowledgeable staff and guides! – I will definitely recommend them. I will use them next time when I return with my family to do a trek in Pokhara hopefully next year!
