Day 2: Full day sightseeing tour (Pashupatinath, Bouddhanath and Bhaktapur)

After an early breakfast, we set out on a guided tour to the primary historical spots in Kathmandu. We will tour symbolic monuments, temples, monasteries, palaces and UNESCO World Heritage Sites that include: Boudhanath, and the temples of Pashupatinath. As we stroll along the exotic locales of Kathmandu, more diversified cultural settings in the valley welcome us with warm hospitality. At Boudhanath, we get deep insights into Buddhism. This may invoke your spiritual senses. We next cruise down a scenic highway to medieval Bhaktapur. Spread over an area of 6.88 sq km, 12 km south-east of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur or Bhadgaon showcases the grandeur of the Golden Age of Nepali art and architecture. Built by King Anand Dev Malla in the 9th century, the city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. It has become a model for heritage conservation since then.

At the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, we will experience fine examples of sculpture, woodcarving and pagodas dedicated to different gods and goddesses – a delightful attraction are the erotic statues of the gods in the act of Kama Sutra at Nyatapol & Dattaraya Temples, Golden Gate and the Palace of 55 windows etc. at dusk, we get ready to proceed to our hotel for an overnight.

Day 3: Tour of Patan, Swayambhunath & Kathmandu Durbar Square

After breakfast we escort you to Patan, one of three medieval cities in Kathmandu. Patan is a destination for connoisseurs of fine arts. We take a tour of the Patan Durbar Square - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in the square is the Patan Museum (originally a Malla palace), Krishna Mandir - a stone temple of Lord Krishna with its 21 spires and bas-relief art depicting scenes from the Mahabharata and Ramayana epics, Royal Bath or 'Tushahity' and surrounding Hindu and Buddhist temples. Leaving Patan we take a short drive to Swayambhunath or Monkey Temple. "Swayambhu" signifies "self-created" and signifies the belief that the hill emerged spontaneously from the great lake that once covered Kathmandu Valley. Our next stop is Kathmandu or Basantapur Durbar Square. Listed as a cultural World Heritage site by UNESCO, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a cluster of ancient temples, palaces, courtyards and streets that dates back to the 12th and 18th centuries. At the square you will find Hanuman Dhoka Palace Museum, Taleju Temple, Kumari Ghar (House of the Living Goddess), Kasthamandap and other temples and buildings as old as the city itself. Overnight at our hotel.

Best Time to Visit

If you come to Nepal and have a flexible schedule, then take the time to visit these places.  Nepal always has something to offer its guests.  During the peak season (October to December) and (mid of February to May), the stunning panorama of the Himalayas is at its crisp-beautiful-best, but there is really no season in which Nepal is not a beautiful or pleasant place to visit.
