Tour Details

The Paradise of Nepal Tour allows you to discover the rich history and vibrant lifestyle of the locals. High in the Himalayan Mountains lies the small kingdom of Nepal. The lofty mountains, deep valleys, lush jungles, exotic wildlife, diverse people, and their unique culture and traditions have increased their value to a great height. This tour will provide you with the opportunity to mediate in the serenity of the Himalayas, along with a full insight into the cultural, traditional, natural, and historical aspects of the places and the people and their lifestyles.

 
Kathmandu Valley is known as the city of temples, and the culture and architecture tour in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur is also regarded as the best sightseeing tour in Nepal. Pokhara is the gateway to most of the treks into the Annapurna Region and is blessed with panoramic views of the Himalayas like Machhapuchhre (Mt. Fishtail), Mt. Annapurna, the Dhaulagiri range, and others. Lumbini, a sacred site, is the birthplace of Lord Buddha and is a decorated site with more than 10 international monasteries built by the respective nations. This tour will take you to discover all the highlights of Nepal.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu

As you arrive at the airport, one of our friendly Asian Heritage Treks & Travel representatives will be waiting for you with a sign with your name. You will then be quickly dropped off at your hotel. Along the way, you’ll see iconic landmarks such as the Open Cremation Place (Pashupatinath Temple). You will also pass the Royal Palace Museum (Narayanhity) and the tranquil Garden of Dreams, all before arriving in Thamel. Your hotel, conveniently located in downtown, puts you right in the heart of the tourist district. Once settled, our representative will be available to answer any questions and go over your travel plans. Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to explore Thamel’s vibrant streets at your leisure.

Includes: airport transfer, an overnight stay at Yatri Suites & Spa or a similar one.

Day 2Sightseeing in Kathmandu

Part I

We will visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There you can find many typical wood-carved ancient temples and buildings that reflect the ancient Kathmandu city. We’ll go to the Ashan and Indrachok markets to try Lassi (a yogurt, water, and fruit drink) and Samosa (a baked potato and vegetable dish). Then you’ll head to Swaymbhunath, the Monkey Temple. There you can observe religious harmony and tolerance between Buddhist and Hindu religions. In addition, you will enjoy a panoramic view of Kathmandu and the Himalayas.
­

Then you’ll visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Boudhanath Stupa. It was built in 600 A.D. and is the world’s only stupa of its kind, reflecting Buddhism. Kopan Monastery, near Boudhanath, is renowned for Tibetan Buddhism. The Kopan Monastery is located in the beautiful hills above Kathmandu. The setting is serene and peaceful, with breathtaking views of the city below as well as the surrounding countryside and mountains. Bouddha serves Tibetan cuisine. Boudha has gained popularity as Kathmandu’s Tibetan food center, thanks in part to its distinct taste from the typical Nepali palate. Popular foods to try in Boudha include Laphing, Khapse, Thukpa, Thentuk, and Shaphaly.

Part II

Afterwards, you’ll visit the Pashupatinath Temple, one of Southeast Asia’s most important Hindu pilgrimage sites. You will explore the surroundings and observe the Hindu people’s ritual body cremation ceremony on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. In the evening, we will witness the Pashupatinath Aarati. The Bagmati Aarati is a major attraction, and Pashupati is well known for it. In Hinduism, Aarati is regarded as the highest form of prayer. The “Aarati at Pashupatinath” honors the sacred river Bagmati and the Pashupatinath Temple. Followers at the Aarati perform a dance form known as “Tandav.” Lord Shiva is performing this dance. As a result, during the Aarati, followers perform Tandav to pay their respects to Lord Shiva.
