In Kathmandu, you will visit the 4 UNESCO world heritage sites and head towards Pokhara. Pokhara is famous for Mountain View and its lakes. Chitwan offers the best jungle safari experience in Asia.

Mount Kailash Manasarovar Tour starts after crossing the border from the Nepalese side and heads towards this sacred site for 4 different religions Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon, and Jain. Mt. Kailash, at 6714 m, is often referred to as Tise, Kailasa & Kang Rinpoche (Jewel of the Snows). It has been celebrated as Mt. Meru, the Axis Mundi and as the center of the physical & metaphysical universe in many eastern cosmologies.Hindus worship this mountain as the residence of Lord Shiva, the destructor of the universe. Buddhists mythologies refer to this holy mountain as a terrestrial projection of the cosmic Mandela of Dhyani – Buddha’s & Bodhisattvas. The wheel of Life; for the Bonpo, Kailash was the sacred nine-story Swastika Mountain, upon which the Bonpo founder Sherab alighted from heaven. Four of the great rivers of the Indian subcontinent originate from here: the Karnali, which feeds into the Ganges (south); the Indus (north); the Sutlez (west) & the Brahmaputra (the Yarlung Tsangpo, east).
