MAGIC OF NEPAL

Duration : 6 Days
Months : Feb-May and Sept- Nov

 

  Touring of Kathmandu and Pokhara Valley

This 6 day tour is a kaleidoscope introduction to the enchanted valley of Kathmandu spotlighting several world heritage sites. Emerald Buddha stupas, tranquil pagoda temples, ornate grand palaces and royal mansions, Kathmandu is a city of endless sight-seeing opportunities. The beauty of its natural landscape and traditional architecture, skillfully built temples and shrines are a testimony to its rich heritage. Around the capital, stretch a fertile agricultural landscape and a variety of excursion getaways.

Bouddhnath - The huge stupa of Bouddhnath, which is the largest in the country and among the largest in the world. It's also the centre for Nepal's considerable population of Tibetans. Late afternoon is a good time to visit. This is when prayer services are held and the locals turn out to walk around the stupa (if you want to join in, do walk in a clockwise direction). Surrounding Bouddhnath are a number of monasteries, but be discreet and respectful if you intend visiting them.

Pashupatinath Temple - On the banks of the Bagmati River, is Pashupatinath, the country's pre-eminent Hindu temple and one of the most significant Shiva temples on the subcontinent. As the Bagmati is a holy river, Pashupatinath is very popular with tourists; the ghats (river steps) immediately in front of the temple are reserved for the cremation of royalty.

Pokhara - This lake city is renowned for its setting rather than it's historical or cultural endowments. It’s location by the lake and proximity to the mountains make it an ideal place for recovery, trek, go walking or curl up with a book. There's a batch of Tibetan settlements, a hilltop monastery, magnificent views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Machhapuchchhre, and the pretty Devi Falls nearby. Day walks can be taken to Sarangkot (1592 m), the limestone caves at Mahendra Gufa or Rupa and Begnas Tals lakes. Another option is the three to four-day Annapurna Skyline Trek.
