USD On Request

Manakamana (mana means soul and Kamana means wish) to fulfill temple is 100 km / 3 hrs away from Kathmandu. Cable car sweeps up an almost impossibly steep hillside to the ancient Manakamana temple, one of the most famous temples in Nepal. Hindus believe that the goddess Bhagwati, an incarnation of Parvati, has the power to grant wishes. Pilgrims sacrifice the goat or free pigeon according to their vow as their wishes are fulfilled. Besides being the center of culture and religion, the ridge top Manakamana temple also overs good view of mountain ranges. 

Gorkha, 140 km west of Kathmandu at an altitude of 1,135m, is the ancestral hometown of Nepal's royal family. Gorkha's small town is perhaps the most important historical town of Nepal. From its hilltop fortress, King Prithvi Narayan Shah had unified Nepal. The British term "Gurkha" evolved from the name Gorkha, referring to the famed fighting soldiers of the region. Its main attraction is the magnificent Gorkha Durbar with a fort, a palace and a temple with extensive views of the surrounding valleys, and the Mansalu range.
