Itinerary

Day
Day 1 Kathmandu

Arrive at the joining point hotel at any time on Day 1 as no group activities are planned except for a group meeting in the early evening, followed by dinner.

Enjoy a six-course dinner at Krishnarpan Restaurant, serving fine Nepali cuisine (organic, too), a slow dining experience reminiscent of the meals relished by the kings of yesteryear.

Kathmandu is fascinating at every turn and a great place to just wander, seeing where the city may lead you.
