World Heritage Site in Nepal

This type of tour has a significant importance in the promotion of ethical and rural tourism. Knowing the fact that tourism helps the people living in the rural areas, we have designed this tour including the visits to the World Heritage Sites. People living in the rural areas could share their interests and needs. The tour also has an approach with the school children in a village and some deprived people in such areas. These children and people could be benefited by such visits. The entire tour is inspired culturally so that a tourist coming from other parts of the world could enjoy it. This type of tour is designed specially for those people who would prefer a relaxed tour with full of ethnic excursions.
