Tour PlanExpand All
Day 01

On arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be met by our representative and transferred to the hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure. On your arrival day, you will have a welcome dinner with typical Nepali cultural shows before embarking on your cultural tour of Nepal to explore the world heritage sites. O/N at the Hotel.

Day 02

There will be a full-day world heritage sightseeing tour of Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, and Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Bouddhanath: – is the largest and the most fascinating religious structure ever built in Nepal. This colossal Stupa is known as Boudhanath, the god of wisdom. This Stupa stands upon a massive octagonal basement. It is in various levels of terraces, painted in pastel, and adorned with prayer flags of five different colors. The area of Boudhanath is also known as ‘Mini Tibet’ since you will see many monasteries, which were primarily constructed in Tibetan style in the last three decades. The settlement of Boudhanath has the largest community of Tibetan refugees.

Pashupatinath: Located 5 km east of Kathmandu, Pashupatinath is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It has a two-tiered golden roof and silver door and is considered one of the holiest shrines for Hindus. Although only Hindus are allowed inside the temple, visitors can see it and the activities performed on the temple premises from the eastern bank of the Bagmati River.

Kathmandu Durbar Square is a wondrous cluster of ancient temples, palaces, courtyards, and streets. The most noteworthy are the Hanumandhoka Palace complex and the Taleju temple. To date, all central state and social ceremonies, including the solemnization of coronations, are carried out in one or the other courtyards within this complex.

The royal enclave presently houses three museums. The monuments in and around the area are so charming that each appears more wondrous than the one next to it. During this tour, you will also visit the Temple of Kumari (the Living Goddess), which represents a very ancient Hindu deity of Nepal locally known as Taleju, which is Buddhist by birth. The building has intricately carved wooden balconies and window screens. The Kumari acknowledges greetings from her balcony window. Once a year, during the Indra Jatra festival, the King of Nepal seeks the Kumari’s blessings. O/N at Hotel.

PM: World Heritage tour of Changunarayan and Bhaktapur.

Changunarayan is Kathmandu's most ancient Hindu temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Another fact is that the complex was built on a peninsula that was not submerged in water like most of the valley.

The lavishly decorated two-tiered principal temple stands on a spacious courtyard and is literally littered with artistic and priceless statues, idols, and sculptures, some dating back to the 4th century AD.

Bhaktapur is one of three sister cities that retains a medieval charm. Visitors to this ancient town are treated to myriad wonders of cultural and artistic achievements.

The past glory of the Malla rulers continues to be reflected at the Durbar Square. Pottery and weaving are their traditional industries. Bhaktapur is famous for woodcarving, the Bhadgaolen top (cap), and curd. O/N at Hotel.

Day 09

World Heritage Tour of Patan Durbar Square and Swayabhunath.

Patan—The ancient city of Patan, lying 5km southeast of Kathmandu, is known as the city of fine arts. It is full of Hindu temples and Buddhist monuments. The diversity of medieval culture, which allowed both Hinduism and Buddhism to flourish, has left a rich legacy of impressive sightseeing in this city for today’s visitors.

Swyambhunath, visible from afar on a hilltop to the west of Kathmandu, takes pride in being one of the world’s most glorious Buddhist Stupas. Its existence is linked to the creation of the Kathmandu Valley out of a primordial lake. This hill is a mosaic of small Chaityas and pagodas.

Swayambhunath is perhaps the best place to observe religious harmony in Nepal. It offers excellent views of the Kathmandu valley. PM is free. O/N at the Hotel.
