Package Itinerary

After breakfast, we set out to explore the palaces, temples and monasteries of Kathmandu valley. We begin from Pashupatinath Temple-one of the holiest Hindu Temples in entire South Asia. The temple is situated on the bank of sacred Bagmati River, which is a tributary of the sacred Ganges. Admission to the temple is reserved for Hindus only, yet we can have close up view of the temple from the other side of the river. The temple and the surroundings are vibrant with rites and rituals performed by Hindu devotees. We will also have the opportunity to watch the Hindu cremation services in the bank of the river.

The next stop would be the giant Boudhanath Stupa-Asia’s one of the largest Buddhist shrines. The stupa with 100m (328 ft) diameter and 40 m (130 ft) height can be spotted from many view points in Kathmandu. There are a number of Buddhist monasteries around and the area is dominantly Tibetan in character and reminds very much of the Barkhor area of Lhasa. After a lunch break in Boudhanath, we head to Bhaktapur-one of the three medieval principalities of Kathmandu valley and best the preserved one. Bhaktapur, with its Durbar Square and beautiful temples, intricate wood carving in the balconies and windows and fabulous stone sculptures and clean, brick paved streets give the impression of being an open air museum.

The major attractions of Bhaktapur are the palace of 55 windows, the giant Taleju Bell in front of the palace, the gold gilded gate with beautiful metal works in its semi circular pediment, the royal bath tank inside the palace, 5 storied Naytapola temple that survived the earthquake of 1934, Duttratraya Temple, and Pujarimath complex with Peacock window-the masterpiece woodcarving in Nepal. We walk through the narrow alleys with private houses on both sides, and visit the potter’s square where we learn the traditional methods of pottery making and sneak a peek into the wood carver’s workshop near Duttratraya. After spending a good amount of time in Bhaktapur we will return to the hotel late afternoon.
