The Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour offers you to discover exciting cultural and natural places of Nepal that gives you a glimpse of this diverse country. This is an alternative tour package for Nepal Temple Tour developed by our trekking agency.

Starting the tour with a visit to a holy land for tourists visiting Nepal!

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 souvenirs shops, restaurants, hotels, bars and cafes.

Swayambhunath

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 hill-top, you will see an astonishing view of ever-growing city of Kathmandu which you’ll see creeping up the hills around the valley. This temple also is infamous in the name of “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

Afterwards, you’ll get to visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, a plaza of Royal Palace of former Kingdom and 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’, statue of god Kal Bhairab, Shiva Parvati temple, and other monuments. Visiting this palace gives you the knowledge of authentic art and architecture of Nepal.

Boudhanth

Later on, we will take you for a visit to Boudhanth. 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 1950s.

Pashupatinath

Next, we will guide you with visit to Pashupatinath, one of the holiest Hindu shrines from all over the world.  While visiting the last place for the second day of Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour, here, you’ll get to meet with 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 gives you a different sensation about the momentary life.

Traveling to Pokhara

On the 3rd day of Kathmandu-Pokhara Tour, we drive to Pokhara, the second biggest city in Nepal. The city is also considered to be one of the most scenic cities in the world. This picturesque valley houses various places full of natural beauty like lakes, caves, river, 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 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 Hindu scriptures) will provide you with an apparent understanding of human life-cycle in accordance to the nature. Subsequently, you will go to the World Peace Stupa. This is the Buddha temple lies on the southern hilltop of Pokhara city. From here you can enjoy the stunning sunset view.
