Sample Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive Kathmandu

On arrival in Kathmandu, your guide will meet you and accompany you to Dwarika’s Hotel - a welcoming oasis of calm amid the hubbub. Welcome to My Way Travel! This level of personal service (such as private transfers, private tours etc) is what you can expect throughout your trip. A few services (eg boat cruises) will be shared, but we'll always make sure you're aware of these.

The remainder of your day will be at leisure to enjoy the hotel facilities, take a dip in the outdoor pool, or treat yourself to a relaxing massage at the Himalayan Spa.

Day 2
Historic tour of Kathmandu, Dwarika’s 12-course Nepali feast

Immerse yourself in Kathmandu’s history with a morning exploring several ancient sites. Start with a wander around Durbar Square - the traditional heart of the capital where the city’s kings were once crowned - through a labyrinth of lanes lined with shrines, temples, teahouses and markets, with your guide pointing out places of interest. See the Hanuman Dhoka (Kathmandu’s Royal Palace); Itum Bahal, which boasts the largest ‘bahal’, or Buddhist monastery courtyard, in the old town; and the intricately carved Kumari Chowk, home to the young Kumari or living goddess.

Hike to one of Kathmandu’s most iconic sites: UNESCO-listed Swayambhunath, the Monkey Temple, which offers a fascinating mix of Buddhist iconography and Hindu deities, and an extraordinary eye mural looking down over the Kathmandu Valley. In the afternoon, head back to Dwarika’s Hotel for some leisure time before enjoying the evening’s legendary 12-course Nepali feast. You may want to eat lightly during the day in preparation!

Day 3
Fly to Pokhara

Once in Pokhara, your guide will take you to the Tiger Mountain Lodge: a relaxed retreat offering extraordinary views of snow-capped peaks and misty valleys from its lofty location. Take the rest of your day at leisure to relax and settle into the Lodge, where you’ll likely be tempted into the inviting infinity pool and those spectacular mountain panoramas.

Days 4 & 5
Adventure activities in Pokhara

Take pre-breakfast tea and homemade biscuits on your veranda as you soak up the picturesque surroundings, with the distant mountains glowing in the morning sun - a pretty fantastic way to start the day!

The range of activities on offer at Tiger Mountain Lodge means you can be as adventurous or easy-going as you wish. Hike along shorter, nearby trails through farmland and local villages, or opt for a full day’s trek along a more challenging route for rewarding panoramic views. Thrill-seekers can go white-water rafting on the Upper Seti River, or paraglide on thermals above Sarangkot Hill. If all that sounds a bit too energetic, then enjoy whiling away blissful hours by the pool instead.

Day 6
Drive to Chitwan National Park, afternoon activity

Depart Pokhara in the direction of the Indian border, to Chitwan National Park. Arrive at your lodge on the outskirts of the National Park in time for lunch, and take time to unwind before embarking upon an afternoon of personalised activities.

Tiger Tops Tharu Lodge takes a unique approach to its activities, and your experience will be entirely tailored to your own preferences and wishes. You could go wildlife spotting by boat along the Narayani River, by open-top jeep, or on foot through the jungle, which is a particularly exhilarating experience. The lodge naturalists have recorded over 300 species of bird in the surrounding habitats and you can join them for a bespoke bird-watching tour. You can also visit nearby Tharu villages to learn about the region’s indiginous traditions and talk with locals about daily life in their farming communities

Day 7
Explore Chitwan National Park

Immerse yourself in your choice of activities in and around Chitwan National Park. Your day can be as fully-packed or relaxed as you wish. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a dawn-to-dusk itinerary - the lodge is a wonderfully serene setting, and you can easily spend a few hours just relaxing by the pool or swaying in a hammock in the gardens.

Days 8
Travel to Dhulikhel, unwind at Dwarika’s Resort

Head to Bharatpur airport for your flight to Kathmandu, and travel on to Dhulikhel. Your accommodation for the next few days will be at the sumptuous Dwarika’s Resort, with its serene atmosphere and inspiring mountain views - a perfect place to relax and reflect. Enjoy Ayurvedic-inspired treatments in the renowned Pancha Kosha Himalayan Spa, consult the onsite Ayurvedic doctor, and visit experts in meditation, naturopathy, yoga and astrology. Dwarika’s has a specially-designed maze to enhance morning meditations, and a peaceful healing room constructed from Himalayan salt. Away from the spa, there are art, pottery and cooking classes to take part in, and walking trails to explore both in the resort grounds and beyond.

Days 9 & 10
At leisure in Dhulikhel

Take the next couple of days at your own pace, unwinding in the resort or heading out to explore the town and surrounding hills. Combine the natural serenity of the resort’s idyllic location with its wellness-focused facilities and home-grown produce, and take time to discover more about Dhulikhel’s history and culture.

Day 11
Depart from Kathmandu

After breakfasting with a last, lingering look at the snow-capped Himalayan peaks on the horizon, travel to Kathmandu for your onward flight.

An amazing trip out together by Stephen at My Way Travel! This was our second trip ( went to Vietnam and Cambodia 2019). Stephen is great to work with- very flexible and listens to what we wanted to do. This trip was originally scheduled for April 2020. A honest company that asked if I wanted my deposit back and I said no - that I would use it in a future trip! How many companies around the world did this???? We had great guides In Bangkok and Chiang Rai and Chiang Rai. Fon was full of energy and fun in Bangkok. Ann was one of the best guides I have ever had- she took us to a couple of places not noted on the tour. We went for a hike at a waterfall and visited the cave where the Thai boys were rescued in the cave. Both Ann and Fon gave us wonderful suggestions for restaurants. I would absolutely recommend Stephen and My Way Travel! We plan to use him again in planning Bali!

Our group of 26 people traveled to Japan & Thailand with My Way Travel, and had an incredible time. This was our third trip with My Way Travel and the trip was planned perfectly with every detail accounted for. Our tour guides were exceptional in every way. They exuded a warmth and friendliness that immediately put us at ease, making our trip more enjoyable. Not only were they amiable, but they also had extensive knowledge about the places we visited. We would highly recommend My Way Travel to anyone planning a trip to Asia.

We have just returned from a 16 Day/15 Night trip to southeast Asia including stops in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand planned by Stephen at My Way Travel. We reached out to My Way Travel with quite a tall order asking them to arrange a trip for us that included visiting 9 cities in 15 nights! From the first point of contact, our experience with My Way Travel was absolutely fantastic. Stephen was very attentive and let us customize our tour however we pleased. All of the hotels he booked for us were incredible and the tour guides and drivers made us feel like family. It was very easy to keep in touch with Stephen throughout our trip via Whatsapp. The only thing we really needed during our trip was to add baggage for one of our flights and he was able to take care of it the day before we arrived at the airport. All the drivers/guides showed up on time and made transferring from airport to hotel to tour to wherever extremely easy. I will definitely recommend this company to anyone that plans on traveling to Asia.
