Being the country with World’s tallest Mountain Mt Everest (8848m), the Experience Nepal package would be incomplete without touring the mountain. However, this is not possible in 12 days.- Don’t get upset, though.

MOUNTAIN FLIGHT

Needless to say, Nepal Experience Tour is the most versatile trip package. It gives you the glimpse of overall Nepal in just 12 days. Our Experience Nepal trip is an adventure-mix which comprise of relaxing city tour at Pokhara to the steep trek of Ghorepani and the gurung culture in Ghandruk. Besides that, the escapade continues to safari and bird watching in the Chitwan National Park. The tour further relents watching the Himalayan vista from Poon Hill; spending the night at Sarangkot. All in all, the package in itself is a wonder and the fun in it will amaze you.
