Nepal: The Classics

The Classics

Journey through the jungles of Chitwan, immerse yourself in Kathmandu, and trek the Pokhara hills. The three together are called the Golden Triangle of Nepal and each location is the perfect jumping off point for any customized program.

Chitwan – Chitwan is the country’s powerhouse when it comes to wildlife, including the elusive Bengal tiger. Embark on jungle treks, ride elephants, and immerse yourself in the local culture.

Kathmandu – Buckle up for a wild ride or sit back and relax. Kathmandu is whatever you want to make of it and Backpacker Concierge is here to guide you through the decision making process.

Pokhara – Its sleepy vibe and proximity to some of the country’s most popular hiking trails makes Pokhara a favorite for many travelers.

Chitwan

Let the facts speak for themselves. Chitwan has:
- 408 out of the 435 one-horned rhinos in Nepal
- 61% of the country’s birds, 540 species of them to be exact
- An elephant breeding center, vulture conservation program, gharial breeding center, and turtle conservation program

Needless to say, Chitwan is the country’s powerhouse when it comes to wildlife, including the elusive Bengal tiger. Spend a few nights here and take part in jungle walks straight out of the African savannah, ride elephants to rhino watering holes, and immerse yourself in the tribal Tharu culture with homestays and cooking lessons.

Kathmandu

Buckle up for a wild ride or sit back and relax. Kathmandu is whatever you want to make of it and Backpacker Concierge is here to guide you through the decision making process.

Where do you want to stay? Immerse yourself in the chaos of Thamel with its narrow lanes, modest hotels, and plethora of eateries. Or, take refuge in the quiet suburbs of Patan, Bhaktapur, or even at a nearby organic farm.

What do you want to do? Embark on a walking tour of the city with a local guide, take a cooking class, chill out in a private park, or escape the city and embark on day-trips to the countryside.

Pokhara

With a population of only 200,000 it may come as a surprise that Pokhara is Nepal’s second largest city. Its sleepy vibe and proximity to some of the country’s most popular hiking trails makes Pokhara a favorite for many travelers. On offer is a range of accommodation from truly budget beds to sophisticated lodges nestled within the lush hills.

Use Pokhara as a jumping off point for:
- Hilltribe and Annapurna trekking
- Organic farming
- Lake activities, paragliding, and birdwatching
- Journeys to Bandipur, Chitwan, and beyond
