We start in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, and have a number of days to explore the fascinating towns of the Kathmandu Valley. This is the historic religious, cultural and administrative centre of the country.
We explore the city of Kathmandu as well as Pashupati. Boudhanath and Patan. These towns are fascinating and have ancient squares, Buddhist stupas and palaces. The Kathmandu Valley is a thriving and bustling place and we will be able to photograph a number of historic buildings as well as some of the incredible people of Nepal.
From Kathmandu we move on to the ancient town of Bhaktapur to explore its own UNESCO listed Durbar Square. Leaving the more bustling towns, we head on to the atmospheric village of Nuwakot to have our first experience of rural Nepali life.
We then drive to the remote and well-preserved hilltop settlement of Bandipur, set on a high ridge to explore the preserved buildings and local countryside.
Proceeding on to Lake Begnas,we will have time to explore the lake as well as preparing for our mini-trek. This is a part of the so-called Royal Trek - and takes us along trekking paths, through some tiny villages where we will get the chance to interact with and photograph local villagers. The trek has stunning views and passes through a lot of interesting rural scenery.
We spend an overnight camping before trekking onwards to a vehicle, where we proceed to Pokhara. We have time to explore Pokhara before returning to Kathmandu.
