Different packages available with
Arrive into Kathmandu and transfer to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure. You might like to walk into the centre of the city to explore the markets, food stalls, and drinks. Kathmandu has a lot of pubs and bars too, and the nightlife here is also tantalizing because of many nightclubs, so come back at night and enjoy a bit of nightlife.
You will find an enthralling repository of Nepalese art, history, culture and tradition when you go in for a Kathmandu sightseeing tour. The topmost tourist locations that are a must for a visitor to Kathmandu are:
After a comfortable night at your hotel, start by exploring Thamel, a popular tourist spot in Kathmandu. It’s a commercial hub and the centre of the tourist industry in Kathmandu, a kaleidoscope of crowded space, narrow lanes, hotels, travel agents and shops selling artifacts. Thamel, in fact, is one of the most picturesque places in Kathmandu and has been the center of interest right since the Hippie days of early 70’s.
For lunch you can try out local cuisine. There were many restaurants here that serve traditional as well as Continental cuisine. Traditional Daal-Bhaat-Tarkari thali is highly recommended.
After lunch, you can drive to Kathmandu Durbar Square, also known as Basantapur or even walk down from Thamel as it is quite close to it. This way you see more of Thamel and the narrow lanes bustling with shops.
Kathmandu Durbar Square is one of three Durbars in the Kathmandu Valley and is also known as the Hanuman Dhoka Palace Complex because of the kneeling statue of the Hindu god, Hanuman. It is located in front of the old royal palace of the Nepal Monarchy. The palace itself has beautiful architecture, and houses the King Tribhuwan Museum and the Mahendra Museum.
The Durbar Square is actually made up of two sub-areas. The outer complex has some interesting temples, such as the Kumari Ghar – the home of Nepal’s Living Goddess. It also holds the Kasthamandap, Shiv-Parbati Temple, and the Jagannath Temple. Dont miss the massive statue of Kal Bhairav, representing Lord Shiva in his destructive manifestation, in an open temple.
Today explore a selection of temples including Swayambhunath, Boudhnath Stupa and Pashupatinath – a sacred Hindu temple.
Start with the Buddhist centres in town, and the Swayambhunath Temple is normally the first stop. You got to do some early morning workout as you climb 365 steps to visit the Swayambhu Temple, an ancient Buddhist Stupa situated on a hilltop. The architecture is quite breath-taking, and the massive Vajra (thunder bolt scepter) is stunning. The eyes of the Buddha are painted on all four sides of the stupa as if Lord Buddha is keeping a watchful eye on every devotee. The view of Kathmandu city is stunning from the top.
The Great Boudha Stupa is next. It is the most sacred Stupa for the Tibetan Buddhists and also a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Stupa reportedly entombs the remains of Kassapa Buddha. The soothing chants of “Om Mane Padme Hum” are mesmerizing. There are about 50 monasteries to house the monks and Tibetan refugees in the complex.
If you are feeling tired and hungry, there are rooftop restaurants here with a panoramic view of the 100-foot dome of the Boudha Stupa and try out the Nepali snacks set, Khaja, a perfect snack item.
In the afternoon or early evening hours, go and visit the almighty god, Lord Shiva’s temple, the Pashupati Nath Temple to attend the evening aarti and offer prayers. Pashupati Nath temple is a famous and sacred Hindu temple complex on the banks of the Bagmati River. There’s also a crematorium on the banks of the river. Only Hindus, Buddhists of Indian or Tibetan descent are allowed into the main Pashupatinath Temple.
Day 4 The Durbars
Next morning, it’s time now to explore the other two Durbars, which are near Kathmandu. You can head to Patan Durbar Square first, which is situated at the centre of the city of Lalitpur, just 7 kms from Kathmandu. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Patan is one of the oldest Buddhist cities and is also known as Lalitpur (city of fine arts). It is a centre of both Hinduism and Buddhism with 136 bahals or courtyards and 55 major temples. The three main courtyards in the palace are Mul Chowk, Sundari Chowk and Keshav Narayan Chowk. Krishna temple made of stone, five storied Kumbheshwar temple and the Golden Temple are some of the main highlights of Patan. The figures and carving made out of wood amazes the visitor and leaves one awestruck.
You can now head to the next destination, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, which is about 20 kms from Kathmandu. Bhaktapur has the best-preserved palace courtyards and is the oldest city centre in Nepal, listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Bhaktapur literally means place of devotees. It was also known as Bhadgaon or by the Newari name Khwopa.
This is the most beautiful, open museum type Durbar, holding exciting and the finest examples of medieval excellence with different palaces, courtyards, royal bath, sculptures, pagodas, Shikhara style temples and Buddhist monastery displaying rich culture and wood, metal and stone artworks.
Do try JU JU while in Bhaktapur, or Nepal. Don’t miss tasting this special type of curd, sold in earthen pots. It is a special type of curd called “Ju Ju(king) dhau. Its truly “Divine.”
Take a short flight to Pokhara to enjoy at the second largest city in Nepal. The gateway to the Himalayas, Pokhara is full of lakes with views of the snowcapped peaks.

In the afternoon, spend time boating on the misty Phewa Lake and visit the Tal Barahi temple in the lake and offer prayers to goddess Barahi. The lake is often blanketed by lavender water hyacinths and has a faint emerald hue due to the surrounding lush-green fields and forests.
Continuing to the southern fringe of the lake, take a trek to the World Peace Pagoda, a beautiful dome shaped Pagoda shining atop a hill and has four images of the Buddha facing the four directions.
Enjoy your evening and experience the night life at Pokhara, a hippie haven of the past.
In the morning, visit Sarangkot to see the sunrise over the Annapurna and Fishtail mountains, and then move to Nayapul, near Pokhara to indulge in a short duration easy trek in the Himalayas. Today, you start trekking to Ghorepani Poonhill/Annapurna View Trek.
This is a walking adventure in the Himalayan foothills of the Annapurna region. You trek in the lower mountain zones and because of the low elevations, you don’t feel the strain. The panorama of the high mountains on the vista leaves you amazed and the spectacular shining view of the Annapurna range will certainly cast a hypnotic spell. The panoramic views of the mountain peaks in the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range are simply stunning.
The hike to Poon Hill from Pokhara takes 2–3 days to see the beautiful Himalayan Range. The sunrise from Poon Hill is particularly mesmerizing. During the trek you will stay in friendly teahouses. Annapurna South, Barasikha, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchru (also known as Fishtail mountain), the Dhaulagiri mountain range and Tukuche Peak are all on show on this short trek to Poon Hill into this beautiful region.

Day 11 Bandipur
Travel to the ancient Newari town of Bandipur located between Kathmandu and Pokhara (3 hours drive form Pokhara) to experience a well-preserved town with many fine examples of 18th century architecture, as well as small cafes, shops and temples.
This is a very picturesque sight, and an example of the living and breathing abode of Newari culture in the Gandaki Zone at 1030 metres above the Marsyangdi River. Bandipur is a perfect weekend retreat from Kathmandu or Pokhara. The town has more of a relaxing vibe, with the laid-back ambience of a small European neighbourhood.
Since the opening of air-field at Pokhara, and also the construction of Kathmandu-Pokhara highway, Bandipur lost its place on the tourist map. But if you are interested in ancient culture and amazingly preserved Newari architecture, a visit ot Bandipur, also known as the “Little European Village” of Nepal is a must.
