Kathmandu Exploration Day

After breakfast in the morning, we take you for the Kathmandu sightseeing tour. We are going to do the UNESCO CULTURAL HERITAGE TOUR today which includes:

• Swoyambhunath: A journey up to this monumental stupa with glittering golden spires provides the travelers with a picturesque view of the Kathmandu Valley and it is a must visit for those who wish to dive in the knowledge of Buddhism. The word Swoyambhunath means self-existent one and history dictates that it was made in the 13th century. At Swoyambhu, immerse yourself in the devotion of God by spinning the prayer wheels, with a backdrop of religious prayer ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ and the beautiful fragrance of incense.

• Boudhanath: The Boudhanath Stupa takes its place among the largest stupas in South Asia. The gigantic white mound spreads 36 meters, and on top of it, there\'s a square tower consisting of the holy Buddha eyes facing all four directions. Prayer flags tied to the stupa flutter in the wind carrying the hopes of people to heaven. As Tibetans inhabited the area in the 1950s, you can see the remains of Tibetan culture to this day too and enquire with them to get in-depth knowledge about their culture. Turn the prayer wheels and circle the stupa as you say your prayers amidst the crowd and pleasant yet strong fragrance of incense.

• Pashupatinath: One of the most revered Hindu pilgrimages in the world is ‘Pashupatinath.’ A small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva was built here in 879 AD, but the temple stood in its current format 1697 AD when King BhupatindraMalla made it. This temple is an example of architectural magnificence as the gold-plated roof, silver roofs and woodcarvings of the highest caliber soothe and simultaneously amaze you. The temple comprises of Linga images of Lord Shiva along with numerous statues and shrines. A walk in this temple shows you the true meaning of life as in the yards you’ll see young boys doing ‘Bratabandha’ which starts their journey to adulthood and on the other hand you’ll witness the deceased being cremated in the banks of the holy river Bagmati, indicating that life is short. Talk with the sages residing there and expand your knowledge on Hinduism.

Patan City: Patan houses the famous Patan Durbar Square which was once the abode of the kings of Patan. The Square is a perfect example of Newari architecture at its prime and shows that the Malla rulers were the masters of the art. The square is home to Krishna Mandir, Bhimsen Temple, and the Golden Temple. Further tour the SundariChowk to learn about the fascinating samples of woodcarvings, stones. There you’ll see a massive stone platform, made for the extremely religious king who was said to endure great hardships to attend true peace. Enjoy the traditional Newari dishes in the restaurants there and watch as the urban life passes.

We 3 amigos organised a personalized 10 days Everest Panoramic View Trek an with Kathmandu Heritage Site visits. Mr Rajan looked after us very well and sorted out all our extra requests professionally and without hesitation. We had another great experience with his trekking company and the price was not bad either. I do recommend for the younger trekkers to use Bikram as your guide as he looked after us very well and joked and ate with us most of the time and not forgetting our porter we named Lucky. The hotel we stayed at in Thamel was great as well which Mr Rajan arranged. On our third trip in 2020 we will use this trekking company again for the Mount Kalash trek
