The fertile Kathmandu Valley lies in the tract of land that is of immense importance to the monarchs like the lichhavis and the mallas, and later the shah kings who continued monarchy even as late as 2006.

Strategically placed between the southern Mahabharat Range and the majestic northern snowcapped peaks of the Great Himalaya Range, Kathmandu Valley is a fertile saucer-shaped tract of land of unbelievable richness, both literal as well as figurative, with a dazzling cultural tradition of art, music and architecture. The pagoda design, unique to Nepal and famous throughout Asia, is Nepal’s cultural legacy to the world, its designs carried to the Chinese Emperor’s Court in the 13th Century by Newari virtuoso architect Arniko. Each of the three cities of Kathmandu Valley - Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan - are legendary with the presence of carvings, stupas and the influence of several ancient cultures rolled in one and with seven UNESCO world heritage sights to boot.

The capital of Nepal, Kathmandu City evolved around a single wooden structure used as a rest stop by travellers--- pilgrims as well as peddlers, passing through the ancient trade route between India and Tibet. The wooden rest stop called the kastha mandap lends the city its unique name still stands in Kathmandu’s vibrant central Durbar Square. Kathmandu is the hippie hub of the world with its eccentric cafes and bookshops and curios to collect.

 

 

 and with seven unesco world heritage sights to boot. y even as late as 2006. Overnight stay will be at Kathmandu.

Breakfast will be at the hotel.

Proceed for sightseeing.

Pasupatinath is one of the most sacred Hindu shrines in the world and part of the Panch Kedar, the five holiest temples to Shiva. The majestic two-tiered pagoda structure of the temple is embellished with gold and silver. Shiva’s bull, a six feet tall black stone Nandi guards the entrance which is restricted to Hindus only, although the tourists are mostly allowed.

The magnificent Swayambhunath Stupa or the ‘Monkey Temple’ is a 40 – min walk from Thamel area where you can not only peacefully sit and observe one of the oldest Buddhist pilgrimage sites but also click pictures with the friendly monkeys.

On the outskirts of Kathmandu, the awe-inspiring Boudhanath is the largest stupa in the world. There is a whirlwind of activity around the stupa throughout the day. Devotees circle it to worship, children play around it, curio stores blare out Buddhist chants to promote the selling of the trinkets which are the memoirs, ceremonial drums beat in nearby monasteries and the heady smell of incense and butter lamps hanging heavy in the air. Above them, all, the stupa’s giant Buddha eyes keep watch. 

Overnight stay will be at Kathmandu

After a wholesome breakfast, you will be escorted to the airport to board the flight to Pokhara.

Pokhara is the quaint little city on the Phewa lake in central Nepal. It is the entrance to the Annapurna circuit with the Tal Barahi temple and the picturesque exhibit of the mountain ranges surrounding it.

However, it’s the relatively modest Mt. Fishtail (Macchapuchhre) that is the most unique element on the Pokhara horizon. The twin-peaked side of Machhapuchhre that resembles the tail of a fish is not visible from Pokhara, from where it rather looks like the Matterhorn. Machhapuchhre is considered a holy peak and not open for climbing.

Overnight stay will be at Pokhara.

Wake up at dawn for an early morning visit to the high vantage point of Sarangkot for a fabulous view of the Annapurna range.

After breakfast, our representative will take you to the deafening Patale Chhango (or Hell’s Waterfall) where the waters of the Pardi Khola noisily disappears into a gap in the ground. It is said that decades ago, a foreign tourist, either a woman named Devina or Mrs Davis, or a man named David or Devin, came too close to the waterfall and was swept into the earth by the force of the water, giving the waterfall it’s colloquial name of Devi’s Fall. There is no evidence to prove the validity of this folk legend though, and the story appears to be a warning to fear the sublime in nature.

Next stop will be the Bindhyabasini Temple to Durga where the deity is a shaligram or an ammonite fossil million of years old and found only in the high Himalayas proving that these stupendous summits were once underwater.

The Seti Gandaki River which roars through Pokhara unseen or largely underground can be observed from near KI Singh Bridge in the Northern part of the city.

After lunch, our representative will take you through the city by driving to the Begnas Lake & Rupa Lake located 15 Km from Pokhra divided by a forested hillock called Panchabhaiya Danda, offering the perfect natural retreat with their relative solitary presence.

The Tibetan Monastery will be the last stop for the day.

Overnight stay will be at Pokhara

 

In the morning you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Kathmandu. A Wild Voyager representative will meet you at the airport and assist you with your hotel transfer.

The tour will be a full-day visit to Patan and Bhaktapur.

Patan lies on the banks of the Bagmati River and is the second-largest city of Kathmandu Valley and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A spacious, busy Durbar Square - crowded with locals who gather there to relax on the temple steps or catch up on the gossip - yields to numerous narrow winding alleyways snaking out in every possible direction. The Patan Museum, located inside Patan’s Central  Darbar Square is a combination of 3 museums and has historical sign8ificant art relating to Hinduism, Buddhism and the traditional architecture of the place is awe-inspiring.

The next stop will be the coffee boutique ( the only one in Nepal) called coffee boutique (the only one in Nepal) called coffee at kat-ma where coffee is served by the smiling staff. You decide what amount you pay for your coffee. It has a jazz conservatory upstairs with great live music and you can buy massage oils, paper and soap made of coffee.

Near the Northern edge of the Durbar Square, stands the majestic five-tiered pagoda structure of the Kumbheshwar Mahadev Temple. The oldest temple in Patan, this structure dates back to the 14th century.

Bhaktapur, the “City of Devotees” stands on a hilltop a few miles east of Kathmandu. One of the four Malla Era capitals of Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur is a magical place and another UNESCO world heritage site.

Bhaktapur is stunning with its majestic temples, pagodas, stupas, and charm of the old world with its ancient structures and momo shops. The smell of incense will relax and calm you as you walk along. Fittingly, Bhaktapur served as the backdrop for much of filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci’s stunning “Little Buddha.”

Overnight stay will be at Kathmandu.

Breakfast will be served at the hotel. Later, proceed to airport to board the flight for Delhi. Later the Wild Voyager team will escort you to New Delhi International Airport for your onward flight.
