Kathmandu Valley 's Highlights :
Welcome to Nepal , the land of adventure! Kathmandu Valley , the capital of Nepal , is situated at 4,423 ft. above sea level. The valley is surrounded by semi-green hills, terraced fields and towering snow-capped peaks in the backgrounds. Kathmandu , Bhaktapur and Patan are the major towns in the valley. All three are of great historic, cultural and artistic interests. The architectural history of the valley is said to have begun with the Lichhavi and the Malla kings. Today, the ancient monuments and temples are the center of attraction for visitors, particularly the seven World Heritage Sites, designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Please find brief descriptions of each site in the itinerary below.
Not only the ancient temples and monuments that make the valley interesting but also the diverse cultural groups that make their home here. It is the base camp for all visitors to Nepal and a perfect place to explore history and culture of this Himalayan Kingdom . Nepal being an undeveloped country, its shape and face is changing daily bringing environmental degradation, and is affecting the world heritage sites. The influence of modernization is engulfing the ancient treasures of Nepal . Therefore, we request the visitors to contribute their good ideas on how to save the world heritage sites of Kathmandu Valley by improving its environment.

We offer fine quality hotels and resorts in Kathmandu and its surrounding hills when you are on our tour programs. The valley rims, Nagarkot and Dhulikhel are perfect places to escape the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu . From these hilltops, you can enjoy striking mountain views, sun set and sun rise over the high Himalayas , and breathe fresh air in the ambience of the tallest mountains in the world. We organize treks of various lengths in the surrounding hills to provide you opportunities to visit local villages to explore the local cultures. People who plan to spend more than couple days in the Kathmandu Valley should consider these treks.

Trisuli River Rafting:
Trisuli River may not offer extreme challenges for those experienced and thrill seeking paddlers, but it offers an easy float to some exciting rapids every now and then. Trisuli is good for those who have short time and want to sock in the Himalayan river while traveling to Chitwan Jungle Park safari or to Pokhara trekking. It is perfect for first time rafters to experience white water rafting and families looking for easy river trips. The panoramic view along the river is superb.

Chitwan Jungle Park-Adventure Safari:
Royal Chitwan National Park is a well planned and developed resort destination in southern Nepal . The variety of animals found in Chitwan Jungle includes the endangered Royal Bengal Tigers, one horned-rhinoceros, four-horned antelope, striped hyena, bison, Gangetic dolphin, gharial crocodile, reptiles, rhesus monkeys, and sloath bears. There are over four hundred different species of birds including marsh mugger peckers and other migrating birds that make their home here. The five to six feet tall Elephant grass provides an excellent habitat for wildlife to thrive here.

Highlights of the Chitwan Jungle Park activities are elephant rides to see the elusive Royal Bengal Tigers, one-horned rhinos and other animals; dugout canoe trips to see Gangetic dolphins, gharial crocodiles and the beautiful scenery; bird watching; a tour of the Tharu village to explore their culture and to see how they live. The Tharus also come to the resorts to present their traditional song and stick-dance performances, and lastly play and bath with elephants in the Narayani River .
