Overview

The land of Nepal is gradually gaining popularity among golfers. For the himalayan golf tour, you can play in three major cities of Nepal: Kathmandu, the capital city of the country; Pokhara, the tourist capital of the country; and Dharan. Gokarna Forest Golf Resort and Royal Nepal Golf Club in Kathmandu, the Himalayan Golf Course in Pokhara, and Nirvana Country Club in Dharan are the options provided for you to choose from. If you want, you can also customize the golfing in Nepal package in terms of timing and location. Golfing in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Dharan is an experience like no other, particularly as you get so close to nature. For standard packages, we choose Kathmandu and Pokhara for your golfing locations, but it is up to you where you want to play golf in Nepal. To begin with, our trip starts with sightseeing in Kathmandu, followed by golfing in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

The first golf course established by General Kiran Shumsher in 1971, a cow-gazing land before, was established after he observed this sport during his visit to Scotland. The royal family used to play at this club during their regime. Currently, the club has a 9-hole golf course, which generally organizes over 26 golf tournaments annually and holds the first-ever Nepal Open Golf Tournament.

Located on the northeastern side of the valley, Gokarna was a hunting ground for the former Kings of Nepal. Gleneagles Golf Developments of Scotland designed this 6,755-yard, 72-hole, 18-hole golf course. It is also considered to be one of the best in Southeast Asia. You will find spotted deer, barking deer, monkeys, and different species of birds to accompany or distract you while you are playing.

Likewise, the Himalayan Golf Course is considered one of the most unique golf courses in the world. This 6,900-yard, par-73,18-hole golf course provides scenic views of the Annapurna Himalayan Range and a river flowing right through the course. Isn’t that some way to enjoy a golf tour in Nepal?

The 18-hole Nirvana Country Club is a perfect escape from city life to countryside scenes. The golf club is located in Dharan, on the eastern side of Nepal, which offers a tranquil and scenic environment for golfers.

Naata Treks delivered an absolutely class experience! The Irish charm and camaraderie among the guides added an extra layer of enjoyment. The breathtaking views and the ‘craic’ along the way made it an adventure of a lifetime.
