Itinerary Details
 

Day 1: Kathmandu
On your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be received and transferred to your Hotel. We will then have a small briefing about the entire trip. You will be given a lot of practical information about how to utilize your time perfectly in Nepal and also about what to expect and what not to. While you are in Kathmandu you will be able to see all its charm in full glory. It is a beautiful city with an exciting harmony of the old and the new. This city has a wonderful history that dates back to almost 2500 years.
In the afternoon we will take a guided tour of the Swayambhunath Stupa, held holy by both the Buddhists and the Hindus equally. The sightseeing will continue till the evening. You will also be able to visit the famous Durbar Square which was the hub for hippies in the early 70s. Today there is a wonderful museum that might amuse you.

Day 2: Nagarkot
In the morning we will set out for the Pashupatinath Temple, the guardian deity of the Kathmandu Valley and one of the most revered temples of Hindus all over the world.
This temple is located on the banks of the Bagmati River. Here you will have a chance to see the last rites of the Hindus. We will then move towards the Boudhanath Stupa. This is a site revered by the Buddhists and the surrounding areas are inhabited by Tibetan refugees. There are a lot of Buddhist art and craft items for sale at the surrounding areas.
We will then move to the east towards Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur is an ancient town and the name literally means "city of devotees". The city has a beautiful durbar Square with myriad temples dedicated to the Hindu Gods and what were once palaces now stand as museums. There is the beautiful Nyatapola temple and exquisite newari architecture can be seen in the form of the Pujari math and the Duttratraya temple.
We will head towards Nagarkot in the afternoon. The road starts ascending and winds as it follows pine forests and farmlands and villages. Once we reach Nagarkot you will be taken to your hotel.

Day 3: Kathmandu and Patan
The view of the sunrise from Nagarkot is nothing less than splendid. The Annapurna range can be vividly seen here expanding at a stretch of about 270 degrees. When the sun reflects on these snowy peaks the view becomes absolutely spell binding. After breakfast, we will move towards Patan in Lalitpur.
Patan is a real treat for any curious visitor. It has temples, palaces, ancient houses, centuries old alleyways and great newari cuisine serving restaurants. It is believed that the city was built after the Buddhist Drama Chakra (the wheel of righteousness). There are four Stupas around Patan which was built about by the Indian emperor Ashoka.
We will be visiting the Durbar Square which houses the Krishna Temple, Golden temple statues of bronze.
We will return towards Kathmandu and head for Thamel which is the tourist hub in Kathmandu.

Day 4: Departure
