Unknown Rural Heritage Nepal- Nuwakot, Famous Farm location

Rural Heritage Nepal

We have shown the itinerary on the basis of a complete holiday purely for illustrative purposes. Naturally as tailor-made Nepal holiday specialists we would be happy to discuss additional options, whether it be other activities, more/less sightseeing, alternative/upgraded accommodation etc dependent upon your interests, preferences and time available. We even tailor-make a suggested 'what to pack' list for you based upon your ultimately chosen Nepal tailor-made holiday too.

Day 1 - Arrive Kathmandu

Arriving at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you'll be met and travel by private vehicle towards the Langtang Himal, into the rural foothills of the Himalayas and the beautiful village of Nuwakot. It's around 4-5 hours drive on a mountain road that when you reach the 2000m pass you'll be greeted with panoramic Himalayan views. You'll be staying at the Famous Farm. A former Newari Manor House, tastefully converted to provide atmospheric accommodation. It has its own large, private hillside gardens, as well as vegetable growing area and is a firm favourite with couple and families with children alike particularly as there a ducks, chickens, turkeys and goats running around the gardens.

 

NOTE- If you're international flight is scheduled to arrive later than 1400hrs, we recommend overnighting in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur as an extra night to the itinerary.

 

Accommodation: The Famous Farm  -   Nuwakot

Included Meals: Dinner

 

Day 2 - Explore Nuwakot

Adjust to Nuwakot time, i.e. slow, relaxed and peaceful. In the morning a member of Famous Farm staff will take you on a little walking tour of Nuwakot village environs. You may appreciate visiting the school here (the local kids will be happy to see you all), as well as the small school for deaf, mute children (the only one of its kind in Nepal). Outside the main school is a large, flat area that the kids use to play. You will be made very welcome to join in and play too if there's a kickabout going on, or a spot of skipping, or whatever the the local children are up to. English is taught at school in Nepal from an early age and the local kids will be very, very pleased to try out what they have learned. Of course interactive cultural encounters cannot be manufactured, but our staff will be very happy to help you or your family engage with the friendly people of Nuwakot. The afternoon is free for you to explore further, or get involved with whatever might be going on that you or your family might like. Enjoy another tasty Nepali dinner at the Famous Farm and as we have an open kitchen here, by all means pop in and see how they prepare typical Nepali cuisine

Accommodation:  The Famous Farm, Nuwakot

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 

Day 3 - To Bandipur

After breakfast you'll travel to Bandipur by private vehicle (approx. 3-4hrs). Following the highway for a short while, you then turn left to ascend a mountain road that climbs up around 900m into the hills on the southern side of the Trisuli River Valley. Here lies the small, peaceful, ancient town of Bandipur, which occupies an enviable 'eagle's nest' location perched high in the hills with uninterrupted views over to Manaslu and the Annapurnas. Your accommodation here is located in the heart of the town and in a welcoming pedestrianised area. From the terraces of the Old Inn there are commanding views of the Himalaya and there's a very relaxed feel about Bandipur. In the afternoon a member of our staff from The Old Inn will take you on a familiarisation walk around Bandipur.

Accommodation: The Old Inn -  Bandipur

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 

Day 4 - Explore Bandipur

Today you can explore Bandipur and beyond at your leisure, chill out on the Old Inn Terrace and enjoy the Himalayan views, read that book you've always promised yourself you would read, or whatever else takes your fancy. One additional option would be to take a guided walk to the hill village of Ramkot, one of the last places in Nepal where traditional round houses can still be found - please note, that this option must be booked in advance at additional cost.

Accommodation: The Old Inn, Bandipur

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 

Day 5- Private transfer to Kathmandu Airport. Depart Nepal

A private transfer will take you to the airport for your return international flight. The journey time is around 4-5hrs, so international flights that are scheduled to depart Kathmandu late afternoon onwards are recommended.

Included Meals: Breakfast

 

NOTE- If you're international flight is schedule to depart earlier than 1600hrs, we recommend overnighting in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur as an extra night to the itinerary, or leaving Bandipur on the afternoon of day 4 and overnighting in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur.  

 

 

Of course there's no reason to depart today, your Nepal holiday can be readily tailor-made.
