Tour Itineraries > Kathmandu Valley & Jungles (7 days / 6 nights)

Kathmandu - Nagarkot - Chitwan


This seven-day itinerary offers cultural and historical tours of ancient Kathmandu valley and wildlife tour in one of the most popular national parks of Nepal, the Chitwan National Park.

For centuries Kathmandu valley has been at the hub of Nepalese national life. Apart from being the seat of monarchial and political power, it is also a vast open-air living museum of art and architecture, culture and music which have been enriched over the ages by an intermingling of various ethnic races, peoples of diverse origins and religious beliefs. Driving over winding roads, you visit the tiny settlement of Nagarkote, 32 kms east of Kathmandu at an altitude of 2,099m. Within half a day’s drive crossing the hilly area of the valley to the lower flat lands of the Terai lies the Chitwan National Park, the former hunting reserve for the ruling Ranas, European royalties and Viceroys of India and now a national park protecting wildlife since 1973. The Chitwan valley, lying between the Churia and Mahabharat range and drained by two major rivers, the Narayani and the Rapti, is home of Royal Bengal Tiger, one-horned Asia Rhinoceros, Gangeic Dolphin, over 450 species of birds and many other wild animals.
