Trip Itinerary

Our guide will meet you in the hotel lobby and drive you to Boudhanath, the biggest Buddhist stupa in South Asia (the vehicle's capacity will depend on the number of people in the group). Since its construction in the sixth century by Shiva Dev, this massive stupa has been recognized as a holy site and a mound of exceptional beauty. We'll explore this stupa for about an hour.

We will travel from Boudhanath Stupa to Pashupatinath Temple, which is the most important place for Hindus, in about ten minutes. It is the shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva and his spouse, Parvati. The body is burnt on the banks of the famous Bagmati River. Because we Hindus believe that hell is below the earth and heaven is above the sky, when a body is cremated, the smoke is believed to travel to heaven, and the remaining ash is disposed of in the Bagmati River in Varanasi, India, which empties into the Ganges, which is also believed to have a connection to heaven.

Following lunch, we will travel from the Pashupatinath temple to the city of Patan. At lunchtime in Patan, we'll dine at a typical Newari restaurant. Most of the historical sites in Patan, such as the Krishna Temple, Taleju Temple, Mul Chowk, Sundari Chowk, Royal Spa, Bhimsen Temple, etc., were constructed under the Malla dynasty. But metal sculptures and handicrafts are another thing Patan is well known for.

We travel from Patan to the stupa of Swayambhunath, where you can see the Hindu Harati Mata Temple and the Buddhist stupas and shrines. The term "self-made" at the time of the incident is Shyambhu. You will primarily find Vajrayana and Mahayana Buddhism in Nepal and at this area; nevertheless, Theravada Buddhism is only found in one place in Nepal. We will be treated to breathtaking views over the Kathmandu Valley from both the east and the west and from the north to the south. After the tour, return to the hotel for a bit of relaxation, dinner, and a chance to look through the beautiful pictures you took that day.
