The tiny country of Nepal has the highest mountains on the planet. Mt Everest, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Fishtail, Mt. Dhaulagiri and a lot more add to her endless beauty. Imagine clicking photographs, at close quarters, the snow-capped Himalayan peaks of Nepal. If it sounds like you, our Himalayan Sunrise Tour is definitely the tour program for you. This is a great program that we are offering for your memorable stay in Nepal.
In this program, we will take you to three separate places for sunrise and sunset views. The first one is a mountain flight, the second one is from Nagarkot and the third one is, you guessed it right, Sarangkot – the number one viewpoint in Pokhara. This tour program includes sightseeing of cultural and artistic heritage of Kathmandu Valley. This program is also for you if you want a short but mesmerizing trip in Nepal. You will get to enjoy the mysterious culture of Kathmandu, and have close-up views of the greatest mountain range on Earth.
You will enjoy this trip as it is close to the city, yet it takes you to vantage points that are totally detached from the noise and crowd of the city – in a couple of pristine mornings. This Himalayan Sunrise Tour from Orbit Alpine is ideal for everyone, and especially recommended in winter.
