Awesome Tour !!!

Mega Adventures provided the perfect itinerary for a short vacation in Nepal. 
We took a flight from Kathmandu to Chitwan to explore the sights, including riding the elephants in the jungle.
Then, we took a drive in a very comfortable car to Pokhara, with its beautiful Peace Pagoda and interesting caves.
Driving back to Kathmandu, we stopped and took the cable cars up to Manakamana Temple- a great day!
Evenings were spent walking the streets, shopping and eating great food. 
All arranged by Mega Adventures.
Our driver did a fantastic job and our guide, Ang Tendi Sherpa is the best!
I highly recommended Mega Adventures!

Fantastic !!!

I visited Nepal with my wife in December/January. I contact Mega Adventures International for my day trip to Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara. Mr. Ganesh CEO of the company arranged my trip in a fantastic way. I do not need to worry about hotel, flight, transportation etc. I stayed in Chitwan Paradise hotel in Chitwan and Pokhara Eco Resort in Pokhara. Food and logistic service were great. I would love to recommend my friends and families to go through Mega Adventure International. They treated us as a friend rather than guest!!
