8-Days Nepal Highlight

This is a sightseeing program that includes the major historic, cultural and religious sights of the three Newari cities of the Kathmandu Valley - Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur as well as a glimpse of Newari village life.

Each of the three cities (Kathmandu, Patan & Bhaktapur) is centered around its Durbar Square where museums, temples, courtyards and squares reveal the best of traditional art, crafts and architecture.

Patan's museum is particularly impressive whilst in Bhaktapur the essence of the medieval town can still be felt as the city preserves its own unique identity.

The ancient and enigmatic Swayambhunath Stupa is the most sacred of the Valley's Buddhist shrines whilst Pashupatinath is the largest temple complex in Nepal and one of the most sacred places dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva in the whole subcontinent.

The stupa of Boudhanath attracts pilgrims, particularly Tibetans, from throughout the Buddhist Himalaya. Bungamatic and Kokana are typical Newari villages with typical village architecture and narrow, unpaved streets where the rituals of daily life are always in full swing.

A full day sightseeing program that includes the main historic and religious sights of Kathmandu,
Kathmandu's Durban Square is a constant, teeming mass of life. With over 50 monuments, some dating back to the 12th century, the most famous are the remains of the old Royal Palace and teh Kumari Bahal, residence of the living goddess.

On a wooded hill to the west stands the incredible golden-topped stupa of Swayambhunath, dating back at least as far as the 5th century. It is the most sacred of Buddhist sites in Kathmandu and Newari Buddhists are the most fervent devotees.

Tibetan Buddhists are mostly found around the great stupa of Boudhanath - making a holy circumambulation or within the maze of temples and stalls surrounding it.

The Valley's holiest Hindu temple is equally alive with atmosphere and devotees - Pashupatinath is one of the most sacred shrines to Shiva on the entire subcontinent. It is situated on the banks of the Bagmati River, whose waters offer the same guarantee of release from rebirth as the Ganges. The same promise applies to the dead and this is also Nepal's most important Hindu cremation site.

Bhaktapur, founded in 889, was once capital of the whole valley. As well as an impressive Durbar Square and numerous temples, Bhaktapur is famous for its pottery - whole streets are filled with pieces of all shapes and sizes set in the sun to dry.

Day 04 Kathmandu - Bungamati - Kokana


Breakfast at hotel.
The villages of Bungamati and Kokana offer a fascinating glimpse of rural life in the Kathmandu Valley. In both villages life takes place more on the streets than inside with villagers spinning, caring for children, gossiping, processing crops in the sun. Wood carving is a tradition alive and strong here and it is possible to see beautiful pieces being produced, including doors and window frames. Bungamati is also one of the two homes of the rain god, Raato Machhendranath. Kokana is particularly renowed as a producer of mustard oil.

Dhulikhel is renowed for its views of the Himalaya - particularly impressive at dawn and nearby Namobuddha is an important pilgrimage site.
