The culturally and architecturally rich Kathmandu stands at an elevation of approximately 1,400 metres (4,600 ft) in the bowl-shaped Kathmandu Valley of central Nepal. It lies at the crossroads of ancient civilizations of Asia and is known as the "City of Temples" because of its numerous and unique temples. The city has a profound history, spanning nearly 2000 years, as inferred from inscriptions found in the valley. Religious and cultural festivities form a major part of the lives of people residing in Kathmandu.

(Note:Tourist Visa can be obtained upon arrival at the airport)

You will first visit Swayambhunath, a temple and monastery, which is one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for Buddhists. It is also known as the Monkey Temple because of the holy monkeys that live there. Swayambhunath is situated amidst a beautiful natural scenario on the top of a hill, offering a generous panorama of the peaceful city.

You will then be taken to Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu Durbar Square, and Boudhhanath Stupa.

In the Pashupatinath Temple, you will find one of the greatest Shiva sites and a Hindu shrine, visitors will have the opportunity to observe different ceremonies and specific rituals of Hindu worship. The most intriguing scene is the cremation area on the banks of the river, next to the temple where visitors can witness a Hindu burial ceremony.

Kathmandu Durbar Square is the next stop. You will be able to enjoy the intricate Newa architecture, used by the indigenous Newari people Kathmandu. The Square is a place of living history in the heart of the ever-modernizing Kathmandu.

It offers an excellent view of the mountains as their tremendous shadows shimmer over its clear waters. Savour the view on a peaceful boat ride.

The next stop will be the beautiful Seti Gandaki, the holiest river in Nepal, worshipped by Hindus as a form of Lord Vishnu.

Day 6
Pokhara

In the morning you will be picked up at your hotel. From your hotel we will walk to the lakeside where we will board a rowing boat, which will bring us to the start of out hike. After we enjoyed the boat ride on the peaceful Phewa Lake or hike begins at the foothill forest. Through the forest we climb up to the World Peace Stupa, located on a hill over viewing Pokhara and Phewa Lake. The views from the World Peace Stupa can be absolutely stunning. On a clear day you will see the Himalayas reflecting in the Phewa Lake. Pokhara lies mystically in between these major eye-catchers. The hike to the top will take us between 60 and 90 minutes.

After having absorbed the amazing view and snapped the necessary pictures to show at home, we will enjoy lunch at the top.

Devi's waterfall is located 45 minutes down the hill. The waterfall directly goes into a deep and narrow canal with no ends. It is believed that this deadly waterfall took the life of a tourist named David, who fell down into the cannel and was never found, and hence the name David waterfall, named in his memory by the people of Pokhara.

At the other side of the road we will visit Gupteshwor Cave. The cave is used by locals as a place of worship for lord Shiva and thus anyone entering the cave will be required to take of their shoes. After passing the shrine we will enter the real cave. The cave is almost three kilometres long, and believed to be one of the longest Caves in Asia. In the cave we can view beautiful eroded limestone. During the monsoon season the cave is closed due to flooding.

From the Gupteshwor cave we walk back to our hotel through the dam side. The walk back takes us another 20 till 30 minutes.

In the evening you get to enjoy a mouth-watering, traditional Nepalese dinner. Due to its diverse geography and culture, Nepal has a wide range of foods for you to experience. Dal bhat, for example, is a traditional dish of lentils and spices served with steamed rice. You will also enjoy a range of spicy chutneys, or achaar, all produced using fresh local ingredient along with few other local dishes.

The remainder of the evening will be at leisure to relax or explore.
