Gorkha Durbar; As the birthplace of king Prithvi Narayan Shah, the Durbar has huge significance for Nepalis. The great Shah was born here around 1723, when Gorkha was a minor feudal kingdom. Upon gaining the throne, Prithvi Narayan worked his way around the Kathmandu Valley, subduing rival kingdoms and creating an empire that extended far into India and Tibet.

The Durbar is an important religious site, so leather shoes and belts etc should be removed. Most pilgrims enter through the western gate, emerging on an open terrace in front of the exquisite Kalika Temple, a psychedelic 17th-century fantasy of peacocks, demons and serpents, carved into every available inch of timber. Only Brahmin priests and the king can enter the temple, but non-Hindus are permitted to observe from the terrace.

The east wing of the palace complex contains the former palace of Prithvi Narayan Shah, the Dhuni Pati, covered in elaborate woodcarvings. This structure was severely damaged in the earthquake, so expect lots of scaffolding. Nearby is the mausoleum of Guru Gorakhnath, the reclusive saint who acted as a spiritual guide for the young Prithvi Narayan.

If you leave via the northern gate, you’ll pass the former Royal Guest House – note the erotic roof struts and the crocodile carvings on the window frames.

Down from here is a vividly painted Hanuman statue, and a path leading to a large chautara (stone resting platform) on an exposed rocky bluff with awesome views and a set of carved stone footprints, attributed variously to Sita, Rama, Gorakhnath and Guru Padmasambhava.

To reach the Durbar, you can climb an exhausting stairway of 1500 stone steps, snaking up the hillside, or take a taxi along the road winding up to a car park just below the northern gate.

Ghalegaun is popular scenic tourist destination with an elevation of 2,100 metres above sea level in Lamjung District. The village is situated at approximately 108 km northwest of Kathmandu and 12.5 km northeast of Pokhara, Nepal. The beautiful tourist village is surrounded by Annapurna Circuit. The SAARC Village Tourism Museum is one of the attraction of Ghalegaun which is inaugurates by Bidhya Devi Bhandari in 2017.

Pokhara ticks all the right boxes for your holidays in Nepal, with spectacular scenery, adventure activities, and accommodation and food choices galore. Whether you’ve returned from a three-week trek or endured a bus trip from hell, Lakeside Pokhara is the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
The scene is a chilled-out version of Kathmandu's Thamel neighbourhood, stretching along the shore of a tranquil lake with bobbing paddle boats. From the lake, and possibly even from your hotel bed, you can enjoy a clear view of the snow-capped mountains, just 20 or so kilometres away.

There’s much more to Pokhara than its laid-back charm. It also boasts a booming adventure-sports industry: it is arguably the best paragliding venue on the globe and is surrounded by white-water rivers. There's a fascinating museum dedicated to the world-famous Gurkha soldier. And last but not least, it’s the gateway to the world-famous treks in and around the Annapurna range and beyond.

Palpa; Perched high above the Kali Gandaki River, Tansen is an untouristed town whose reward is precisely that. There is a sense of discovery here as you unearth the evidence of a rich history, all the while experiencing daily life in this mountain village. Here you'll notice some intricately carved Newari windows; there you'll hear the clacking of looms. While it doesn't have the pretty face of Bandipur, these deeper charms emerge over time. If you're lucky, one will be the mist that often carpets the Madi Valley in the morning, locally known as the 'White Lake'. Just be sure to bring your walking shoes: the steep streets will provide all the exercise you need.

Lumbini; Located 22km west of Siddharthanagar (Bhairawa), Lumbini was the birthplace of one of history’s most revered figures, Siddhartha Gautama – better known as the Light Of Asia– in the 7th century BC. During the years following the Buddha's lifetime, this was a teeming monastic complex and a major place of pilgrimage, but the site was lost to history until the discovery in 1896 of an inscribed pillar left behind by the Buddhist emperor Ashoka, amidst a sea of monastery ruins.
History moves in cycles – over the last few decades, a new complex of stupas, monasteries and temples built by Buddhist nations from across the globe has risen from the marshland surrounding the modest-looking but hugely significant Maya Devi Temple, located on the exact spot where Buddha was born.

Lumbini sees more pilgrims than sightseers, and a contemplative mood prevails, but the opening of a new international airport at Siddharthanagar (slated for completion in 2018) is set to raise the profile of Lumbini and other sites linked to the life of the Buddha, including nearby Tilaurakot, where Prince Siddhartha lived a live of luxury before embarking on the path to enlightenment.

Chitwan has a particularly rich flora and fauna. Nepal's first national park, the Chitwan National Park together with the adjacent Parsa National Park support a species diversity much higher than any other on the Indian subcontinent. Rare species include Bengal tiger, gharial, rhino, leopards, mugger crocodile, Indian rock python and several species of deer. The protected areas are guarded by a battalion of the Nepal Army and patrolled by anti-poaching units.

Wildlife Adventure in Chitwan Nepal offer you the best of Chitwan;  a wilderness of rich ecosystem that includes mammals, birds, reptiles and water animals of many kinds. We also introduce you to the Chitwan experience: the colorful Tharu Culture, their lifestyle, culture and tradition. Prepare yourself to dissolve wilderness adventure in Nepal

Manakamana Temple; From the tiny hamlet of Cheres (6km before Mugling), an Austrian-engineered cable car soars up a vertiginous hillside to the ancient Manakamana Temple, the apex of a religious vacation for Hindus far and wide. The temple itself is somewhat disappointing – it's relatively small, and seemingly held together by scaffolding since the 2015 earthquake. But the journey up and the cultural experience at the top make this trip worth doing. Hindus believe that the goddess Bhagwati, who is enshrined here, has the power to grant wishes, and many newlyweds arrive to pray for male children. Tacky, the goddess of bad advertising, also reigns: as the cable car rises, you'll see enormous corporate billboards embedded in the mountainside. Non-Hindus will get many curious glances and endless opportunities to meet fellow travellers, including extended families from India.
