Itinerary

ITINERARY CHANGES: Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It is important that you print and review a final copy prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in country. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary seasonally to ensure our travellers have the best experience. Your tour leader will keep you up to date with any changes once on tour. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES: A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and may be on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.

Day 1 - Kathmandu - Spiritual Nepal
Your short break adventure begins at 3pm with a tour of Kathmandu covering all spiritual bases. Visit the holy Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, dedicated to Shiva, and get the lowdown on Buddhism from the monks at Boudhanath, one of the largest stupas in the world. Spend some time with the Sadhus (Hindu holy men), and peer into your future with a local astrologer before being dropped back at your hotel. Spoiler alert: there are mountains aplenty, and probably dinner and a drink.
Day 2 - Kathmandu - Path to a Hidden Monastery
Escape the city with an early departure to explore Kathmandu's beautiful surrounds, accompanied by a guide. Take local transport to Budhanilkantha and visit the temple dedicated to Vishnu, then begin hiking through the surrounding farmlands into Kathmandu's nearest forest reserve – Shivapuri National Park. Hike to Nangi Gompa, a hidden Buddhist monastery, and take in the spectacular views of Kathmandu Valley and the surrounding snow-capped peaks. Descend through the woodlands and past waterfalls to the end point at a local bazaar. From here, you'll travel back to Kathmandu on the local bus to enjoy a free evening in town.
Day 3 - Kathmandu - Nepali Cooking Class & Rickshaw Night Explorer
Today you'll take a Nepali cooking class with a local social enterprise helping marginalised women. The class will be run at the headquarters of Seven Women, which began in 2006 after an Australian woman met seven struggling women in a tin shed in Kathmandu. She paid for a trainer to teach the women how to make products to be sold both locally and internationally. Now,12 years later, over 5000 women have been educated, trained and employed by Seven Women. You'll meet some of the women involved and hear the stories of how this social enterprise has made such a massive difference in Nepal through literacy classes, skills training and income generation program. Later, take a tour through the local greenhouse and learn about Nepalese vegetables and seasonal produce, then use them to cook some of Nepal's delicious traditional dishes. Once the meal has been prepared, you'll sit down and dine together. Tonight experience the wonderful and sights of Kathmandu by night on a rickshaw tour.
Day 4 - Kathmandu
Your short break comes to an end today and there are no activities planned. There are no activities included today, but if you'd like to continue exploring there are more fantastic Urban Adventures available, including exploring the ancient cities of Patan and Bhaktapur.
