Best of Kathmandu Tour – 5 Days

Enjoy our an unforgettable journey with the Best of Kathmandu Tour, a comprehensive 5-day adventure that covers all the major sightseeing spots in the Kathmandu Valley. This tour not only offers breathtaking views of the Himalayas at sunrise or sunset but also provides the opportunity for a short hike around Nagarkot. Alternatively, you can take a drive to the rarely visited architectural marvels of Nala-Panauti and the sacred Buddhist site of Namobuddha. Here’s a detailed itinerary to guide you through this enriching experience.

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu

Your adventure begins as you arrive in Kathmandu, the vibrant capital city of Nepal. After settling in, you’ll embark on a half-day city tour. The first stop is Kathmandu Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site teeming with historic palaces, courtyards, and temples. Next, you’ll visit the Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple, renowned for its panoramic views of the city and its significance to both Buddhists and Hindus.

Day 2: Full Day Tour of Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Patan

On the second day, you’ll immerse yourself in the spiritual and cultural heart of Kathmandu. The tour begins with a visit to the Pashupatinath Temple, one of the most sacred Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. Following this, you’ll explore the Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest stupas in the world and a pivotal center of Tibetan Buddhism.

In the afternoon, the journey continues to Patan City, also known as Lalitpur. Patan is famous for its rich cultural heritage, particularly its tradition of arts and crafts. You’ll visit Patan Durbar Square, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring ancient royal palaces, temples, and courtyards.

Day 3: Bhaktapur and Nagarkot

The third day takes you to the medieval city of Bhaktapur, known for its well-preserved architecture, pottery, and rich culture. Here, you will wander through Bhaktapur Durbar Square, visit the 55-Window Palace, and admire the intricate wood carvings.

In the afternoon, you’ll drive to Nagarkot, a hill station renowned for its stunning sunrise and sunset views over the Himalayas, including Mount Everest. This serene location is perfect for a peaceful retreat amidst nature.

Day 4: Excursion to Nala-Panauti and Namobuddha or Hike Around Nagarkot

Day four offers two enticing options. You can choose to take an excursion to Nala-Panauti, a hidden gem of architectural beauty with its ancient temples and serene ambiance. From there, you’ll continue to Namobuddha, a sacred Buddhist pilgrimage site believed to be where Lord Buddha, in a previous life, offered his body to a starving tigress and her cubs. This site is not only spiritually significant but also offers spectacular mountain views and peaceful surroundings.

Alternatively, if you prefer to stay close to Nagarkot, you can enjoy a short hike around the area. The trails around Nagarkot provide an excellent opportunity to explore the lush green hills, local villages, and terraced farmlands, all while enjoying the crisp mountain air and breathtaking scenery.

On the final day, you’ll be transferred to the airport for your departure from Kathmandu. As you leave, you’ll carry with you the rich memories of your journey through this historically and culturally vibrant region.
