Nepal Himalayan experience starts in the mystical valley of Kathmandu that has living culture and the world heritage sites. The arts and architectures of Kathmandu’s temples, stupas, monasteries and palaces are comparable to that of no where in the world! On a clear weather day, the view of the Himalayas to the north of the valley is already alluring! From Kathmandu , its safe and faster to take the 30 minutes flight to Pokhara as the surface transportation recently has been boring because of the number of security checks on the highway and Sometime by an unpredicted blockade imposed by the rebels. The flight rewards you with spectacular views of the Himalayas in the right side.
Pokahra is referred as the Switzerland of Nepal and it’s beautiful indeed. Pokhara offers lakes, gorges and caves to the visitors and the best view points in its surroundings. From Pokhara, you will take a 20 minutes flight to Jomsom, a place like no where in the world! Jomsom spreads over both the banks of the Kali Gandaki. The towering peaks of Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri form an attractive backdrop. The views from Jomsom are enchanting as the Nilgiri (7,061 m) and Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) ranges reflect the golden rays of the rising and setting sun. The entire panorama is filled with a golden, glittering light which forms a dramatic contrast with the barren, black and dry mountains of the surrounding Kali Gandaki valley.
