With several UNESCO World Heritage Sites to choose from, it is best to take time out to marvel upon the architectural delights put forward by the Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur Durbar Square. Durbar Square basically means Palace Square and each of the Squares once belonged to the Kings of the respective kingdoms.

    Kathmandu Durbar Square is situated in Basantapur and consists of a complex of palaces, temples, courtyards and the KumariGhar. Kumari Ghar houses the only living Goddess in the world. Another important World Heritage Site is the Bhaktapur Durbar Square.

The usually bustling city, however, has the tranquility of its own.  After arriving in the Pokhara airport, drive to BegnasLake, which is situated in a 45 minutes drive away from the bustling city of Pokhara Lakeside.

     Treat yourself to the views of the Begnas Lake after checking into your hotel room. Begnas Lake is a freshwater lake in Pokhara valley. The water level of the lake fluctuates according to the season. On all seasons, however, the tranquil views of the lake always manage to attract a huge number of tourists. Boating in the lake is a refreshing experience but usually carried out in the better part of the morning. Some parts of the lake are also used as caged fisheries.

     The Begnas Lake and RupaLake are situated close to each other and are some of the largest, natural lakes in Pokhara. Both the lakes have a beauty of their own, heightened more by the surrounding valleys and the mountain panorama. The KotBhairab Temple is situated close by and the viewpoint of Rupakot is an equally perfect destination to witness the spectacle of mountain views of the Annapurna region.

This enchanting lake contains a temple in the middle and we can hire a boat in order boat around the massive lake. 2 hours trek. 3 hours of drive.

    Pokhara is not only home to beautiful lakes, but also to natural creations like caves. We will visit the famous Mahendra Cave and the Gupteshore Cave today.

The museum also hosts a string of pictures of mountaineers and basically everything that you need to know about the mountaineering history of Nepal.

    The World Peace Stupa is situated on a hill overlooking Pokhara. From atop the stupa, the glistening view of the Phewa Lake accompanies by the views of the sky high mountains makes the trip totally worth it.

  • Insurance Policy

    We personally don’t recommend or advertise any particular insurance organization but we can help you figure out what kind of insurance company you should make a deal with. We kindly advise our guests that travel insurance is mandatory before any other travel and trek agreements.

    Ways of triggering your insurance:

    • There are actually two ways that your insurance fund can be triggered and brought into action. The first type is where you will have to use your own money if any injuries occurs or any medical attention is needed. Then the insurance company will pay you later when you return home and show them the documentation of insurance as proof.
    • Another type is where if any medical attention is needed and your insurance needs to be triggered the insurance company will cover all the cost up front and you won’t have to spend a single penny that is not meant for such incident.

    Personally we recommend you to pick an insurance company who are willing to pay you while you need medical attention in Nepal during the time of evacuation and other medical emergencies and not after you return from Nepal.

     

    Main conditions to look for in an insurance policy:

    General insurance only offers medical evacuation up to 4000m but we will attain maximum height of more than this, so we advise our clients to search for a company that provides medical insurance and evacuation plans up to 6000m. If you are planning to climb any peak along with trekking please make sure your policy also pays for “Climbing” as an option.

    You will need to find a policy where your insurance is activated only for the days that you are trekking. If you suffer from altitude sickness and have to be evacuated in an instant you will have to trigger your insurance. These insurance can cost up to $5000. Although these kinds of evacuations are very rare we still need to be prepared for it. So to make any insurance claim you firstly need to get a medical report from a hospital of Nepal as proof before triggering your insurance claim. You will be charged about $150 as a medical fee by the hospital to get your medical reports and documentations before claiming your travel insurance. Some insurance also cover for minor interference and obstacles like flight cancellations to Lukla or even from Kathmandu to your home.

    As mentioned before, please look for an insurance policy that pays you during the time of emergency while trekking and not after you get back to your country.

    What you need to know:

    We inform you that any kind of medical fees that your insurance does not cover will be your responsibility. So we want you to have a very good and thorough look at the insurance policy before applying for it. We do not take any kind of responsibilities for insurance related payments and fiscal managements but we will help you get required documentations and reports for the insurance.

     

    Examples of insurance companies:

    Bigcattravelinsurance.com, WorldNomads, travelguard.com, Squaremouth.com

     

    Important highlights to remember:

    1. Makalu travels do not hold any kind of insurance related financial management work but we will help you acquire important documentations needed for processing your insurance policies.
    2. Choose an insurance policy where you don’t have to pay your own money while trekking in Nepal while in need of medical attention. In other words look for a policy where your insurance company will cover all the money related process if you need any kind of medical attention.
    3. Choose policy with evacuation plan up to 6000m and with an option “climbing” if you are climbing any peak as well as trekking.
    4. Some companies like WorldNomads have a policy where clients have to pay their own money while trekking if they need any kind of medical attention and you will be payed once you return home. So please make sure you have a very good understanding of what type of insurance policy you are agreeing to.
  • Cancellation & Changes

    There are two ways to deal with modification in travel plans. First is you can cancel the trip completely and second is you can postpone the date. But for any of these change to take effect we need to be informed 6 weeks before your booked trip date before cancelling or postponing the trip.

    Important note: In case of natural disasters and national political issues our hands are tied so we cannot undertake any kind of activities which we will take full responsibility of and make sure our clients get the flexibility of making decisions to either postpone or cancel the trip they initially advocated for. There will be no extra fees or cost for rescheduling but if you decide to cancel the trip volunterily our cancellation fees apply which is listed and described below.

     

    Cancellation fees rules:

    These are our specific rules for trip cancellations and refund fees involved:

    1. If we are informed by our clients at least 43 days before the travel date then the full deposit amount will be refunded after deducting 4% bank surcharge on total deposit amount.
    2. If we are informed by our clients 6 weeks before the travel date then we can refund complete deposit by just deducting $195 per person.
    3. If cancellation is done between 4 and 6 weeks of travel date then we can refund your deposit after deducting $395 per person. This is because we will have to pay to the hotels, guides and other personals involved to make this trip possible to recover their financial plans.
    4. If we are not informed between 4 and 6 weeks of travel date there will be no refund as there are many other workers and organizations that needs to be paid by us for planning your trip. Losing you as a customer means losing their employment opportunity which will harm involved worker’s financial status.

    So, we request our respectful guests to inform us about any kind of modification plans (postpone or cancellations) at least before 43 days of travel date. This will help us to refund your designated deposit and also maintain financial status of every worker and organization involved.
