Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour is one of the most liked touring itineraries of NTA. It is a sweet weekly tour that begins from the Capital where you will discover all three ancient cities of the country—Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. The trip further extends to Pokhara, a place that will quench your thirst of seeing mountains from close and enjoy lakes unless you immerse in it. In Kathmandu Valley you will not only visit UNESCO Heritage Sites but get acquainted with Hindu and Buddhist cultures. Nagarkot is a perk to your visit where you will enjoy sunrise/sunset.

Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour is designed for newly married couple. We also suggest this package for those who are in relationship and want to spend some good or memorable time.
