CNY Holiday trip review

Fantastic first time visit
Our family recently toured Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Bhaktapur, Pokhara and Chitwan using the services of Rabindra and iTourNepal. Everything was fantastic—from initial communications via email to tailoring activities to appeal to a 9-year old. Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and visit a raptor rescue and parahawking center in Pokhara because we expressed interested in birdwatching. When we mentioned that that one member of our party was a professional chef, Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and a tour of an organic farm outside of Bhaktapur. .....
We found Rabi and his associates to be punctual, flexible, knowledgeable and kind—in fact, perfect hosts for a perfect 10-day vacation. 'i Tour Nepal' particularly specializes in personalized small group tours, and we can not recommend them highly enough.

Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan Tour

The golden triangle of Nepal - 8 days

Kathmandu Chitwan and Pokhara are the most popular tourist destinations of Nepal. Nepal’s peak tourist season is set focusing on trekking and traversing high mountain passes. It snows in the Himalayas but these three destinations are far lower than the snowline and temperature are moderate to travel during the Chinese new year holiday. The snow over the Himalayan peaks and its layers of mountains make the scenery even more beautiful. Similarly this is when colorful birds migrate to Chitwan national park all the way from Siberia. The low grass and need of sun makes it possible to see more wildlife down in Chitwan national park. Chitwan is at the elevation of 150 m above the sea while Pokhara is 800 m.
