Trip Highlights

Nepal is considered a very exciting country for holidays and Kathmandu Pokhara Tour is an option. From the uninhabitable Himalayas to the lush green plains Nepal offers various kinds of diverse land and culture. It has such geographical and ecological diversity. The Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour offers you to discover exciting cultural and natural places in Nepal. So, we promise this will give you a glimpse of this diverse country.

 

Starting the Kathmandu Pokhara Tour!

 

The tour starts with walking around Thamel, a holy land for tourists visiting Nepal from around the world. Located within the heart of Kathmandu, this place is a fascinating spot full of souvenir shops, restaurants, hotels, bars, and cafes.

 

Swayambhunath

 

The next day, we will guide you for sightseeing of four outstanding heritages inside Kathmandu valley. Firstly, you will visit Swayambhunath, an impressive Buddhist temple located on the western hilltop of Kathmandu valley. From the hilltop, you will see an astonishing view of the ever-growing city of Kathmandu which you’ll see creeping up the hills around the valley. This temple also is infamous for the name “monkey temple”  as monkeys can be roaming around the temple. But, since these monkeys have already grown friendly to the visitors to the temple there is nothing to worry about.

 

Kathmandu Durbar Square

 

Afterward, you’ll get to visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, a plaza of the Royal Palace of the former Kingdom and the former residence of Nepalese Royalties before they shifted to Narayanhiti Royal Palace. The Durbar square is also the home of Nepal’s Living Goddess ‘Kumari’, the statue of god Kal Bhairab, Shiva Parvati temple, and other monuments. Visiting this palace gives you knowledge of the authentic art and architecture of Nepal.

 

Boudhanath

 

Later on, we will take you for a visit to Boudhanath. The Bouddhanath is the biggest Buddhist Stupa in Nepal that is structured as an outstanding mandala-shaped plinth. People who follow Tibetan Buddhism believe this is the holiest Buddhist temple outside Tibet. The neighborhood around the temple provides a home away from home to Tibetan refugees since the 1950s.

 

Pashupatinath

 

Next, we will guide you with a visit to Pashupatinath, one of the holiest Hindu shrines from all over the world.  While visiting the last place for the second day of the Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour, here, you’ll get to meet Hindu sages. Besides, you’ll also see the open cremation of dead bodies on the banks of the Bagmati River. These cremations done as per Hindu rituals give you a different sensation about momentary life.

 

Traveling to Pokhara

 

On the 3rd day of the Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour, we drive to Pokhara, the second biggest city in Nepal. Pokhara is one of the most scenic cities in the world. This picturesque valley houses various places full of natural beauty like lakes, caves, rivers, gorges, Himalayan views, etc. During our visit to David’s Fall (Water Fall where water vanishes within the earth’s crust), you’ll get to see one of the most iconic structures of nature’s creations whilst enjoying the peculiarity of the Nepalese Sub-tropical humid climate.

The visit to Mahadev Cave (an unearthly cave that houses a Shiva Lingam i.e. the symbol of reproduction according to Hindu scriptures) will provide you with an apparent understanding of the human life-cycle by nature. Subsequently, you will go to the World Peace Stupa. This is the Buddha temple that lies on the southern hilltop of Pokhara city. From here you can enjoy the stunning sunset view.

 

Himalayan Sunrise from Sarangkot

 

The next day early in the morning you will be taken for a ride to Sarangkot hill to see Sunrise over the Himalayas and great views of Mount Fishtail, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Lamjung in the distance. In the afternoon you’ll visit Bindavashi temple, the most sacred temple of local people, and the Seti River Gorge. Among the last of the events, you’ll participate in Pokhara will be going boating on the Fewa lake. Boating also includes a visit to Barahi Temple, a temple situated on a small island in Phewa lake.

On the fifth day of the Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour, we’ll drive back from Pokhara, to Kathmandu. After the completion of your journey to and from Pokhara, we invite you for a farewell dinner when you’ll be served authentic Nepali cuisine in a typical Nepali restaurant in Kathmandu.
