This tour is a blend of Kathmandu sightseeing and Pokhara visit.
Kathmandu, the capital city, is the only metropolitan city of Nepal. Kathmandu is now a densely populated and a time-poor city. However, the culturally and historically important places of the city remain intact. The setting of Kathmandu is comprised of numerous temples, palaces, museums, commercial and non-commercial places, hotels and restaurants. In Kathmandu, we will walk around the major places of the city viz. Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath and Pashupatinath.
The Kathmandu Durbar Square is one among the three royal cities of Nepal. It is also known as Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square. The Swayambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa and Pashupatinath Temple are major religious places of Kathmandu. They relate to Buddhism and Hinduism. Pilgrims from neighboring countries also come here to visit these places.
Patan and Bhaktapur are parts of the Kathmandu Valley. The Patan Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square are other two royal cities of Nepal. Both the places are famous for the wood carving, stone carving, architecture of the temples and palaces situated there. Numerous Buddhist and Hindu temples that were constructed centuries back still exist in these places.
Nagarkot is another tourist destination in Nepal. The view of snow-capped peaks especially the Lantang range is wonderfully seen from Nagarkot. The Nagarkot Tower is usually crowded during sunrise and sunset.
Pokhara is the city of lakes. Pokhara has always been known for its natural beauty. The closely seen Himalayas and pure lakes, rivers and gorges are the identity of Pokhara. The major attractions of Pokhara are Phewa Lake, Rupa Taal (lake), Begnas Taal, Mt. Machhapuchhare, David’s Fall, Seti river and the Lake side restaurants.
