Days 1-4 – Kings and gods of the valley

Wander between cobbled streets and scattered temples in the atmospheric medieval cities of the Kathmandu Valley, feeling utterly lost in a timeless daydream. Combining the enchanting chaos of Kathmandu with nearby Bhaktapur and Patan and get straight to the heart of mystical valley culture. Weave between fluttering prayer flags, watch monkeys scamper through temple complexes and kids play with paper kites in the cobbled streets.

Days 7-13 – Sunrise at Poon Hill

Take a short trek through forests and villages for an epic sunrise view. Watch colours paint the sky and clouds drift below you as dawn breaks over Poon Hill, perched between snow-tipped Himalayan peaks. Over five days, you’ll climb twisting stone staircases, hike through the lush foothills and get a real taste of trekking in Nepal. You’ll set off to catch the sunrise well before dawn, trekking in the dark with your guide and your head torch. Watching golden light flood the snowy peaks as the sun creeps up between the mountains, your efforts will be rewarded a thousand times over.
