I named this trip Nepal 101 because it will be your first time exploring the beautiful country. Like any other first experience, I want this trip to be deeply engraved in your memories with all its moments, places, and people. We'll be doing a round-trip starting from the capital city, Kathmandu, to the fun activities-filled Pokhara, then to the divine Lumbini, and finally returning to Kathmandu to go home. During this trip, you'll experience almost everything, from diversity and adventures to spirituality and nature. Oh yeah, get ready for a roller-coaster of food heaven as well! Along with other mates, we'll taste some of the mouth-watering dishes of Nepal.

==>Hey there, fantastic traveler! I'm Sam, a 25-year-old from India who loves traveling. I have already been to South Korea, China, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Nepal besides India, exploring a plethora of fantastic places, and cultures, and meeting wonderful people along the way. I'm currently exploring every nook of Nepal while anticipating my upcoming exciting Bhutan trip. I want to share with you that you will have the best time with me, not just because of the beauty around you, but also from the solo travel stories I've experienced across Asia. I can't wait to meet you in person, running wildly across Nepal, the country of Mount Everest, and the never-ending beauty of Mother Nature.

==>As for the accommodation, it'll mostly be hotels, B&Bs, and hostels depending on the location. In Kathmandu, there are a plethora of options available to choose from. For Pokhara, I would suggest Hotel Hidden Kingdom, a wonderful new hotel at a convenient location, and Hotel Nirvana at Nagarkot (I've personally been there and can guarantee the experience). I want this trip to be as economical as possible without compromising on comfort, hygiene, or privacy. Connect with me and let me know your preferences, and I will find the accommodation that fits our needs and style. We've got everything covered! So what's stopping you? Hop in and have the time of your life! Let me know in the Q&A section if you have any questions about the trip!

Day 1-3
Every stop in our trip is divided into three parts: sightseeing, activities, and food to try. On our first stop, we'll be traveling around Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. Sightseeing places include the famous Swayambhunath Temple, Pashupatinath Temple, and the Durbar squares of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. Activities include enjoying nighttime at Thamel and pottery at Bhaktapur. We'll be trying the Newari Kaza set, Thakali Kana set, momos, Chatamari, and Youmari. I personally loved Bhaktapur for its cultural vibes and lots of delicious food, be it Nepalese or Westers. I'll take you to wonderful places that offer tasty treats and sauces (Yes, sauces are Nepali's specialty). Just walking around Kathmandu, you can feel the peace seeping into you. We'll be traveling around in a taxi while in Kathmandu.


Day 3-6
Our next stop is all about adventures. We take a bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara to enjoy the countryside scenarios (Takes about 8-12 hours). Sightseeing places include the famous Phewa Lake, Devi's Falls, and Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave. Activities include boating, paragliding, and bungee jumping. We'll be trying fried trout fish, Gundrk and Dhido, and dal bhaat tarkari. Tripmates can freely choose the activities they want to participate in. We'll be traveling around in a taxi while in Pokhara. I personally recommend a few activities with the company, 'The Cliff'. I've tried out the world's second-highest bungee jump, sky cycling, and giant ping and they are all worth the time and money. Connect with me to know how my experience was. I'll be delighted to share it!

Lumbini Province

Day 6-7
This is the birthplace of Buddha, so it's a must when you come to Nepal. Time to be spiritual after a bus ride from Pokhara. Sightseeing places include the Mayadevi temple, Monastery clusters, and Bardiya National Park. We'll be trying Tikiya chat, Pakuada, samosa, and panipuri. Trip mates can try any other foods during the entire trip.


Day 7
It's time to go back home, with a heart filled with lots and lots of memories with the trip mates. I wish to see your faces filled with happiness and peace by the end of the trip. Hoping to see you sometime soon on another exciting trip. In addition to the aforementioned itinerary, you are welcome to join me in other activities like Vispaasna, Buddist mediation for 10 days with no devices, no talking and just staying still, cooking classes in Thamel, and so on. These activities will need additional time and cost.
