Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu Tour in December vs. June
Either December or June is low season for traveling Nepal. Traveling Nepal in these months has both pro and cons. Low season means, there will be less people traveling in Nepal and most of the sightseeing point will be less crowded.
Beneficially, travelling in these months of winter and monsoon; you will find you peace. Taking pictures of monuments while visiting birthplace of Lumbini or temples in Kathmandu will be perfect. At Pokhara most of the restaurant will be lesser busy than in the month of October or April. That is how; waiter/ess will get more attention at your table. Hotel accommodation might be cheaper and the cost for the tour package might be negotiable.
In contrary, monsoon season is cloudy and winter is cold. Mountain View from Kathmandu or Pokhara might not be as perfect as in the peak traveling season. And if you love making friends while traveling, this is not the right time to travel Nepal.
Although it is cold in the winter – weather is better than in the rainy season of June. So December is recommended than June. But note that, June has mild temperature and the afternoon rain is most probable.
Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu Tour in April vs. October
Clear weather, bright stars, White Mountains reflecting on Phewa Lake welcomes many tourists in the month of October and April. Both of these months are peak season for travel in Nepal.
As a peak season for travelling to Nepal, crazy crowd in the sighting spots, hard to take your single picture might annoy you. But our local guides will try their best to avid the crowd. Nepalgram is proud of happy clients.
Even though both April & October are on the bright side of traveling season in Nepal, it is recommended to travel Nepal in October. October has festivals in whole Nepal. Whereas April has festival Kathmandu which you might not get in right time – on your tour schedule.
If you want to get the better weather and less people – choose April over October and forget about festivals like Dashain and Tihar – celebrated across Nepal.
Pokhara I famous as the lake city, do not forget to enjoy boating. The reflection of Annapurna mountain range over the lake you are boating makes your tour a lifelong memorable. Have your dinner by the lake or spend time around the lake.
Most of the days will be busy with scheduled tour activity; however spending time at Mayadevi temple in Lumbini and spending evening at Pashupati Temple during Kathmandu tour will be interesting.
Most of the sightseeing point will be explained by guide to his/her perfection. But still if you ask more – you will explore more insight and in spirit.
Unlike to trekking or high altitude tour activity, you will not suffer from any of the health related issues; but if you have any questions – ask your guide. Nepalgram do not leave your concern unaddressed.
Private trip vs. Group join Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu Tour
Private trip are always flexible than group join, obviously. However Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu tour is famous as a group joins tour activity. But believe me, group join tour can be cheaper but it is not fun at all.
Private trip of Pokhara Lumbini and Kathmandu will allow you plenty of time to take picture and spend as much time you wish to spend in one place. For example you can spend more time in Australian monastery at Lumbini and less at Mayadevi temple as per your preference. If you feel like relaxing for couple of minutes in front of Mayadevi temple under the tree of Bar-Pipal, you can do so.
Whereas in group join trip the entire group member will follow guide and any of the team member is subjected to do as directed by guide. In big group, guides are called leaders.
Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu Tour vs. Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu Chitwan Tour
Among these 2 tour package, tour of Kathmandu & Chitwan is missing in Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu tour.
Tour of Kathmandu will include 4 major UNESCO heritage sites of Kathmandu. Famous Hindu temple, Buddhist stupa and historical palace of Kathmandu are one of the major attractions of Kathmandu in Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu Chitwan tour.
Whereas Chitwan is famous for jungle safari in Chitwan national park by jeep or with elephant ride. In Chitwan jungle safari will allow you to witness the wild nature of Rhino, leopard, bear, deer, elephant and many other animals? However, this national park safari has cultural insights as well. At Chitwan tourist will have opportunity to spend a night at Tharu cultural museum, here you will know how the people of low Terai region look like and what their tradition is?
1. Anthropological aspect
Comparing “Pokhara Lumbini Kathmandu” tour and “Kathmandu Pokhara Lumbini Chitwan” tour huge insights of Nepalese anthropology will be skipped.
Tharu cultural house in Chitwan and UNESCO heritage sightseeing in Kathmandu are major insights, which are famous in Nepal tour. Adding tour of Chitwan national park is not only the nature but also people, culture and tradition in an evening show. Whereas, Kathmandu is a complete cultural museum and capital of Nepal preserves more of its tradition and antiquity.
2. Natural scenery
Regarding the nature; Kathmandu has very less to show you. From the rooftop of hotel you might be able to see White Mountains in distance or if you top up for Nagarkot sunrise tour, you might see more nature, while being at Kathmandu.
Whereas Chitwan is about natural scenery more than cultural program in the evening, at a cultural house. Chitwan national park is famous for preserving many endangered animals including one horned rhino. Elephant breeding center, jungle walk, jeep safari, close contact with deer and peacocks will be overwhelming. Towards the end of the day sunset at the Rapti River side of Sauraha resort is chilling.
