Trip detail itinerary

Day 01: Arrive to Kathmandu; Transfer to Gokarna Forest Resort Flying to Kathmandu along the northern border of Nepal on a clear day is in itself an exciting and memorable experience as exotic panoramic view of snow-capped Himalayan peaks sprawls before you. We meet you at the airport and escort you to Gokarna Forest Resort. Gokarna Forest Resort, the only golf resort of Nepal is located just about a few minutes drive from the airport in a quite suburb in Kathmandu. The resort is set amidst the lush greenery of Gokarna Forest, the traditional hunting ground of Nepalese royalty. Tucked away in a quite corner of the resort is 'The Hunter's Lodge' which housed the Shikaris (hunting party) accompanying Royal Family members during their hunting trips in Gokarna Forest. The building is over a hundred and twenty years old. It has been carefully restored and now houses a quaint restaurant and bar. Apart from world class accommodation, the resort also features a Spa and an international standard Golf Course.

Day 02: AM - Sightseeing in Kathmandu / PM - Dinner at Garden of Dreams Kathmandu, the historical and cultural heart of Nepal, has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The city presents a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and western influence. There will be a half day guided tour to the UNESCO World heritage Sites of the holy Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath, Boudhanath - the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal, the 'monkey temple' of Swoyambhunath and the medieval palace of the Malla Kings at the Kathmandu Durbar Square.

After the sightseeing tour you will be escorted to the 'Garden of Dreams' or 'Swapna Bagicha'. Amidst the chaos of Kathmandu, the Garden of Dreams (located just two minutes walk from Thamel Chowk), opens up into a haven of peace and tranquility. A dream project of Field Marshal Kaiser SJB Rana, the neo-classical garden was built in the 1920s. Kaiser Shamsher erected six impressive freestanding pavilions, each dedicated to one of the six seasons of Nepal. These pavilions provide the Garden's architectural framework and complement the arrangements of flowers, shrubs, and trees. Unfortunately, of the original four acres and six pavilions (named after the six Nepali seasons), only 1.2 acres and three pavilions remain. The garden is built along the lines of an Edwardian Garden - paved perimeter paths, interposed by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surround a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It has an exquisite ensemble of fountains, pergolas, balustrades, urns, and statues. After exploring the Garden we sit out to enjoy dinner at the Kaiser Restaurant located at the corner of Basanta (Spring) Pavilion.
