11 Days Nepal Highlights Round Tour Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews

After deciding that trekking is too tough for me, I told to Ram that I wanted to go for a tour this time. And I went for 11 days tour in Nepal which included all the amazing places that didn't require me to walk long hours. I visited places ranging from Birthplace of Buddha to home of one-horned Rhino to paragliding in Pokhara. During these 11 days, there wasn't a minute when I was bored. I was tired, yes, but enjoying amazing food after a long day visiting wonderful temples, historical places, rivers, forests is the best type of relaxation. I want to thank Sublime Trails for planning this amazing trip for me and my friend.
