Package Itinerary

Today, after breakfast at hotel, we start driving to Patan, the drive is approximately about 1 hrs. Patan is also known as Lalitpur, the second-largest town in the valley. The city is full of Hindu temples and Buddhist monuments with bronze gateways, guardian deities and wonderful carvings. Noted for its craftsmanship on metal, wood and stone, it is known as the city of fine art and beauty. Our tour consists of a visit to the Durbar Square representing the heart of the city. This square is full of ancient palaces, temples and shrines noted for their exquisite carving. The main attraction of the Patan Durbar Square is the courtyards of the ancient Royal Palace. The “Krishna Mandir” Temple is supposed to be the specimen of Shikhara style architecture in Nepal. It holds a commanding position in the palace complex of Patan city.

After having lunch in Patan we will continue to drive to our second destination site is the famous Hindu shrine Pashupatinath Temple. It is famous and religious temple among the Hindus, Pashupatinath temple offers great prospective on Hindus. This temple is situated amidst many other temples on the right bank of the river Bagmati.  Pashupatinath is the guardian spirit and the holiest of all Shiva shrines in Nepal.

Pashupatinath area is regarded as one of the most important places of pilgrimages for the followers of Hinduism. Thousands of devotees from within and outside the country come to pay homage to Pashupatinath every day. And on special occasions like Ekadasi, Sankranti, Mahashivratri, Teej Akshaya, Rakshabandhan, Grahana (eclipse), Poornima (Full moon day) people congregate here in far greater number. Pashupatinath area is also included in the list of world cultural heritage.

After Pashupatinath temple, we drive to Boudhanath.  Boudhanath Stupa is primarily for Buddhists.  You will be the next one to take walks around the big Stupa.  Buddhist walks around this temple, the walk known as KORA around the Stupa.  You will find locals, and elderly folks walking and praying around this Stupa.

The Great Stupa of Boudhanath is the focal point of the district, and in fact, until the 1980's there was very little else here. Since then, there has been a construction boom, and outwardly, at least, there is little these days to distinguish it from any other congested Kathmandu suburb. The culture, though, remains very much Himalayan with a strong presence of Tibetans and Sherpa, and this can be evidenced by the number of restaurants selling momo’s and thukpa and other Tibetan favorites. In fact, when traveling into the area, it is often the sight of maroon clad Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns that indicate you are getting close. Boudhanath remains a fascinating area with many Buddhist temples and eccentric characters, though, don't come expecting to find a peaceful and quiet environment to sit and contemplate the wonders of the Stupa.
