Full description
On the first day of the tour, be picked up by your guide at 10:30 AM and begin your exploration of Kathmandu valley. First visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pashupatinath Temple. This temple is one of the most sacred locations in Hinduism, and is the oldest of its kind within Kathmandu, dating back to the 5th century. Afterwards, travel to see Swayambhunath Stupa, one of the most spectacular monuments within the valley. See also Boudhanath Stupa, one of largest stupas in Nepal. Visit Kathmandu Durbar Square in front of the old royal palaces, another World Heritage Site. This site is notable for being the cultural and historical hub of the valley. After exploring all of these landmarks, be returned to your hotel or residence to complete the first day of the tour. Start the second day with a pickup by your guide at 10:30 AM. Travel for one hour southeast to Panauti, one of the oldest towns in Nepal. Here there are many temples dating back to the 15th Century or earlier. Visit Brahmayani Temple as you cross the Rosi and Punyamati rivers. Continue then towards Indreshwor Temple and Unmatta Bhairav Temple. Observe the various idols of Hindu gods and goddesses and wood carvings within the temples. Travel onwards to Namobuddha where the site of the Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery is located. This is one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in the world. It is known as the place where the Buddha, in a previous life, gave his body to a starving tigress and her cubs. Commemorating the famous story, there is a shrine and stone slab on the top of hill with great panoramic views of the Himalayas and surrounding villages. After exploring both towns, return to your hotel or residence.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour!! Kathmandu Valley is breathtaking but our guide, Bharat, made it so much fun. He was full of information and just a joy to be around. We were completely comfortable from the moment we met him and we learned so much! Highly recommend. :)
