Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 18 March 2010

For an Easter break, the lofty majesty of the Himalayas, home of the tallest mountains in the world is now accessible to travellers from Singapore via Delhi and Mumbai on Jet Airways. Eight-day Jet Airways packages are now available from a consortium of Singapore agents starting from a fare of Sin$1068.

The itinerary covers the rustic charms of capital Kathmandu including a visit to the 2000 year old Swayambhunath Stupa and Lalitpur, known for its fine metal work. Next, visit Pokhara, the second largest city in Nepal where an hour long boat ride at Fewa Lake awaits with captivating views of the beautiful Himalayan panorama. Great buys are found in the lakeside village from shawls to traditional chanting bowls. Stop over at the Tibetan refugee camp where barter trading is still being practised.

On day five, ascend to Nagarkot, 2300 m above sea level and soak in excellent views of the Himalayan range at sunset and even Mount Everest on a clear day. On the return to Kathmandu, visit the famous Durbar Square, Hanumandhok (Hanuman Gate) and Kasthamandap dominated by Shiva temple where the Living Virgin Goddess Kumari lives. At the same time, you will see God Shiva and Parvati Temple, Narayan Temple, Seto Bhairab, Kal Bhairab and Taleju Temple built in the 17th century.

 Before flying back to Singapore, spend some time shopping at Colabar Causeway or taking in the rich historical sights of Mumbai.
