Itinerary

DAY 01 : ARRIVE IN KATHMANDU
On arrival in Kathmandu, you will be greeted & provided with warm assistance by our representative to be transferred to the hotel. Check-in overnight at the hotel and refresh yourself before a wonderful expedition with Tours Zoo. Overnight stay at the hotel.
DAY 02 : IN KATHMANDU – FULL DAY SIGHTSEEING
After breakfast, you will visit the temple of the Living Goddess, who acknowledges the greetings of the devotees from the balcony of her temple residence. Chosen at the age of four or five, the Kumari Devi is the most important of the several living goddesses in Nepal. After going through strict criteria of selection, she moves into the temple with her family, leaving only to attend a few festivals each year. Visitors can have a quick glance of her acknowledging the greetings of her devotees. However, at the offset of puberty, she becomes mortal again. We then visit the Durbar Square and its array of temples overlooked by the Hanuman Dhoka Palace, the ancient residence of the Nepalese Royalty. Also, visit Swayambhunath, perched on a hilltop on the southwestern part of Kathmandu, Swayambhunath is one of the most important religious and cultural sites in Nepal and is associated with the birth of the Kathmandu Valley civilization. Approximately 2000 years old, the Swayambhunath stupa, is a dome 20 meters in diameter and 32 meters high and is made of brick and earth mounted by a conical spire capped by a pinnacle of copper gilt. Many other smaller temples and places of religious importance for both Hindus and Buddhists are a perfect example of the symbiotic co-existence of different religious beliefs only found in Nepal surroundings. . The hill is heavily wooded on all sides with indigenous plant species, and troops of monkeys, giving it the nickname of “Monkey Temple”. The height of Swayambhunath also makes it a good vantage point and on clear sunny days one can see the Himalayas to the east. Later visit Patan or Yala as it is known today is located on the southern banks of the Bagmati River and is one of the three main cities in Kathmandu Valley. The city is believed to be the first settlement in the Valley and was established by the Kirat dynasty who ruled for more than 1200 years from the 3rd century BC. Patan is famous for its amazing collection of fantastically carved temples, palace courtyards, water sports, public baths, and houses with their equally elaborate wood, stone, and metal carvings under the patronages of the Kirat, Lichivi and Malla kings. Patan has more than 1000 temples and monuments dedicated to the uniquely Nepali mix of Buddhist and Hindu gods, chief among which are the mounds erected by the great Indian Emperor Asoka in the four corners of the city when he visited Nepal in 250 BC. Patan Durbar square is one of the seven Monument Zones that make up the Kathmandu Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site. The beautiful day comes to an end and enjoys your overnight stay at the hotel.
DAY 03 : IN KATHMANDU – FULL DAY SIGHTSEEING TOUR OF PASHUPATINATH, BOUDHANATH AND BHAKTAPUR
After breakfast visit, Pashupatinath: The temple of Pashupatinath located on the western banks of the Bagmati River on the northeastern side of Kathmandu, is one of the most important Hindu pilgrimage sites in the world. Pashupatinath, which means “Lord of all Animals”, was considered the main protector deity of Nepal. Discovered by a cow herder, the inner sanctum of the temple has a lingam, a stone phallus with four faces around it. As one of the many forms of Lord Shiva, one of the three main gods of the Hindu Trinity, Pashupatinath draws Hindu pilgrims from all around the world, especially on MahaShivaratri, the “Night of Shiva” which falls in early spring. Other temples like the KiratesworeMahadev, Bhairav, Guheswori, and Gorakhnath have their own tale of origin and importance. Pashupatinath is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit Boudhanath Bouddhanath is claimed to be the largest Buddhist stupa in the world for its base of 82m. The chief legend is that of the 5th century Lichivi King Manadev who built it to do penance. Revived after rediscovery in the 15th century it gained a reputation among Tibetan Buddhists especially after the 19th century Rana Prime Minister appointed a Tibetan monk as its chief abbot. 50 more monasteries surrounding Bouddhanath make up the Kathmandu Valley World Heritage Sites. Also, visit Bhaktapur – One of the three main cities in the Valley, Bhaktapur is located east of Kathmandu and is, in reality, a medieval city where the Newars, the main inhabitants still follow age-old traditions and customs. Established around the 9th century Bhaktapur is known for its fertile land and was still a small farming village when Patan and Kathmandu were already well-established towns. The capital city of the Valley in 1377 BC during the reign of the Malla dynasty and flourished as a major urban centre from the 15th century onwards, the best example of Nepali craftsmanship include Palace of 55 Windows built-in 1697, the five-storied Nyatapola Temple, the KashiBiswanath Temple, the Dattatreya Temple among many others. One can witness ancient traditions carried out even today as they were centuries ago in many areas of the city such as in Potters Square.
