You'll be greeted at the airport by a local guide and transported to your hotel in Kathmandu, where you'll have a free evening to get to know the city.
The next day, you'll journey to the mountain village of Nagarkot, where you'll spend a night before heading back to Kathmadu via the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bhaktapur Durbar Square. While in Durbar Square you'll watch a Thangka painting and singing bowl performance.
The same evening you'll see a traditional dance show with a Nepalese dinner in Kathmandu. The following day you'll take a tour of the city, including Kathmandu Durbar Square -- which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- plus Boudhanath stupa and the sacred Buddhist shrine at Swayambhunath.
On the fifth day of your holiday, you'll arrive in Pokhara and spend two days exploring the surrounding area, including Phewa Lake, Gupteswar Cave temple and Devi's Falls, as well as visiting the Gorkha Museum. From there, you'll also take an early-morning drive to Sarangkot to see the sun rise behind the Annapurna mountain range.
You'll then head to Chitwan National Park, which teems with wild rhinos, tigers, leopards and deer. Chitwan is "one of the best wildlife-viewing national parks in Asia", according to Lonely Planet, and you'll immerse yourself thoroughly on a guided nature walk with birdwatching, a jeep safari through its dense jungle and a peaceful ride along the RaptiRiver in a traditional tree canoe.
You'll spend a final night in Kathmandu before flying home to the UK.
