Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal

Welcome to Kathmandu! As soon as you touch down in this magical land at the top of the world, you’ll be eagerly greeted, and then whisked off to your comfy hotel at the heart of the city. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the Kathmandu Valley is the political and cultural heart of the Kingdom. The urban sprawl that makes up modern Kathmandu is in fact two cities, Patan and Kathmandu.

Day 2City Tour to Bhaktapur and drive to Nagarkot (Hill Station)

Today you can indulge in the mystical warmth of this city. A tour around the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, the museum of medieval art and architecture with many examples of sculpture, woodcarving and colossal pagoda temples consecrated to different Gods and Goddesses are in for you today. The main attractions of the Bhaktapur Durbar Square are the 55 Window Palace, the Lions gate, the small Pashupatinath temple, Vastala temple, Nyatapola temple and the Bhairavanath temple.
The city where Nepali medieval times are preserved. It emanates the vibes of an ancient city which is why it is listed as one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites. It pre-sents a genuine living history, with its pagoda style wooden temples, stone water spouts, brick lined narrow alleyways, intricately carved traditional wooden Nepalese houses, and magnificent mountain ranges.

After you explored Bhaktapur, you reach Nagarkot, a hill station situated at the north of Bhaktapur and famously known as being the key viewpoint to enjoy the beautiful sunrise and sunset with the chain of the mighty Himalayas in the distance. Just above Bhaktapur lies the hill with the Bagishwari Saraswatisthan (Manjushree cave) where Milarepa, a Tibetan tantric Yogi used to meditate.

Day 3Nagarkot - Patan - Swayambhunath

The hilltop Nagarkot, at the eastern periphery of the Kathmandu valley, is the second highest peak in the valley at more than 2000 meters above sea level. Reaching the top after an hour long exciting and winding drive you will see the surreal view the Mount Everest among the Himalayas. The next stop, Patan Durbar Square, is one of the examples of the ancient Newari architecture of the Malla reign. The major highlight today is the Krishna Temple with 21 pinna-cles built in Shikhar style. Once called the city of Bihars and Bahils, Mahaboudha is the terra-cotta masterpiece of 14th century. Buddhist must-see places include Hiryana Verna Mahabihar, Rudra Verna Mahabihar and Ashokan stupas.

Even though being so close to the bustling city you will feel so far away from the noise and hustle.

The next stop Boudhnath, is the world’s largest stupa with 36 meters. It lies about 6 km east of the center of Kathmandu. The design of the stupa is really fascinating, with hundreds of prayer wheels and 108 small images of Buddha all around.

It is surrounded by numerous rooftop restaurants so enjoy your lunch while having an astonishing view over the stupa.

New foods, experiences and immersing –
Nepal is an amazing country with a beautiful countryside and most importantly beautiful people. Honestly the most comforting and humbling place to visit. I have learned a lot about myself through trying new foods, experiences and immersing myself in a culture, which is very different. I cannot say enough about the team and their connections throughout the country.
