Nepal has a Monsoonal climate with four main seasons. Autumn and spring are the two most favourable seasons for visiting Nepal. Autumn (September to early December) brings in clear weather with sunny days and warm nights. Spring (March to May) with occasional rain falls. From June to September, is the monsoon season.

Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It is the hottest season, with temperatures ranging from 32 degrees C to 45 degree C, so not ideal for travel. The "Monsoon" (although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall) extends from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. 90% of the rain Rajasthan can expect occurs during this period. Lakes and rivers will be higher from mountain run-off and flowers and grasses come to life, bringing added colour to the landscape.

The Post-monsoon period is from October to November. The average maximum temperature is 33 degree C to 38 degree C, and the minimum is between 18 degree C and 20 degree C. The official "season" for hotels in Rajasthan starts in October. It’s a great time to travel - warm and sunny during and perfect for exploring and relaxing.

The fourth season is "winter", and runs from December to March. With day time temperatures still in the high 20's during the day this a very popular time to travel. Hotels are at the their busiest over the Christmas and new year period. Be aware though that December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also fairly standard to expect some fog in the major cities of Northern Rajstasthan and Delhi in December and January.

On arrival you will be met by your private guide and driver and we recommend two nights so that you can take in the all major sites including Durbar Square, Boudhanath Stupud and Pashupatinath Temple. The history here is extraordinary and you private guide will effortlessly bring all of the ancient sites alive for you.

Pokhara

The next stop is to Pokhara, the adventure capital of Nepal. From Kathmandu you will take a short internal flight to Pokhara and here, the world is your oyster in terms of adrenaline pumping experiences such as paragliding and zip lining. However, if that is not of interest Phewa Lake is a beautiful and a relaxing place to stroll with a lovely relaxed charm which much of Pokhara offers. Again, like in Kathmandu, you will have a private guide and driver with you to help you uncover the beauty of the region.

Accommodation: The Pavilions Himalayas ( 2 nights )
Day 5-6

Annapurna Region

Pokhara is not only a beautiful spot to spend a couple of days but it is also the gateway for the incredible Annapurna range.

Today, after breakfast, you will continue on to your next village stop of Ghandruk. As you climb out of the Modi valley you are treated to spectacular views and interesting scenery as you pass through working rice fields, forests and small little hamlets. On reaching Ghandruk you will have time to rest and unwind in the afternoon, or spend some time exploring the surrounding area further with your guide.

Day 8-9

Kathmandu

As you depart the trek, descending back to Pokhara you’ll have the chance to get acquainted with the beautiful villages in the region as you pass through areas such as Patlekhet and Pothna, full of charm and character. On arrival in Pokhara you will be met by your private car to the airport for your onward flight to Kathmandu.

From Delhi you’ll take a quick train ride to Agra, and from here you will be able to witness this masterpiece.

Jaipur

To end your trip in India you will have three nights in Jaipur which a 4-5 hour drive from Agra. The scenery that you will pass through is stunning and if you can spare the time, we suggest breaking up the journey with a one night stop along the way which is a brilliant way to experience the rural side of India. If time is tight, then this is not an issue as your guide will make interesting stops along the way, making the drive more of an experience rather than just a transfer.

Jaipur is an enigmatic city and full of rich cultural heritage. As Rajasthan’s capital the historical palaces of the city are breath-taking and the streets are full of vibrant bazaars, rickshaws and camels that all come together to create the unique character and colour of the city. The romantic notions of India are well and truly felt here making it the perfect spot to end your epic adventure.  Here we have included a tour with a private guide to the famed Amber Fort, the City Palace, Palace of the Winds as well as a walking tour through the bustling craft bazaars of the city.
