Detail Itinerary

Upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, an airport representative from Ambition Himalaya will pick you up and take you to the hotel. After getting fresh in the Hotel we will take a rest and later will start exploring the town. If we have time, then we will go for dinner at a typical Nepali cultural restaurant for dinner with the director of Ambition Himalaya. We will discuss the trip in detail before returning to the hotel.

Meals Included: Complimentary welcome dinner

Early in the morning, we will drive to the airport for a magical and stunning mountain flight. For people not doing any treks, a mountain flight is the best option for stunning views of the Himalayas.

Our mountain flight is about for an hour and after that, we will return to the airport. We will return to the hotel and shortly we will start our sightseeing tour in Kathmandu valley. Our sightseeing covers 4 major places as below:

Our first day of sightseeing tour in Kathmandu will be started after having breakfast in the hotel. The director of the company will introduce us to our tour guide. We will start the trip by sightseeing in Patan.

Patan is a wonderful heritage site situated in the valley with thousands of years old monuments and creativity. Continuing our trip, we will go to Bhaktapur; one of the major heritage sites of Nepal, as also listed by UNESCO. Bhaktapur also has different kinds of attractive and creative carvings to look at. Bhaktapur was a palace a long time ago and now all these palaces are here for sightseeing.

After ending our trip to Bhaktapur, we will drive to Nagarkot; a magical hill station. Nagarkot is a popular hill station at a one and half hour’s drive from Kathmandu. This top of the hill is popular for sunrise and sunset viewing. For those who do not have time to go trekking, this hill has been a good option for viewing the Himalayan panorama.

Meals Included: Breakfast

We will have breakfast in the hotel and start walking down to Changu Narayan Temple. This temple is also an old Hindu temple situated near the Kathmandu valley. The hike to Changu Narayan is pleasant, hike through small villages and pine forests.

The hike is about 3 hours from Nagarkot and it’s downhill almost everywhere. We will explore tiny towns and smiling local people. Finally, after reaching Changu Narayan, we will take a look there and plan to drive to Kathmandu.

Meals Included: Breakfast

Swoyambhunath: The tour will start from Swoyambhunath, also known as ‘Monkey Temple’ among tourists. Swoyambhunath is one of the most popular holy sites for Buddhist people all over the world. This area is inhabited by lots of monkeys and that is why the area is called Monkey Temple by tourists. Swyambhunath is a holy place situated on the top of the hill on the west of Kathmandu valley.

Pashupatinath: After Swoyambhunath, we will continue our tour to Pashupatinath. Pashupatinath is the biggest and most popular Hindu holy temple among Hindus, mostly in Nepal and India. This is a popular temple located on the bank of the Bagmati River in Kathmandu valley in the east of Kathmandu. Only typical Hindus are allowed to enter the main entrance of the Temple. Pashupatinath Temple is one of the oldest temples in Kathmandu.

Bouddhanath: Bouddhanath is another most popular and sacred Buddhist stupa in the Kathmandu valley. This holy place is popular among Buddhist people all over the world. This stupa is located in the North-East of Kathmandu valley. The stupa’s massive mandala makes the stupa one of the largest stupa in Nepal. The Bouddhanath area is inhabited by Tibetan refugees for a long time.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: Finally, we will conclude our tour to Kathmandu Durbar Square; one of the most advanced sites in Kathmandu. Kathmandu Durbar Square gives you a spectacular example of the traditional architecture of Kathmandu Valley.

The whole palace is crafted with amazing crafts by the typical people of Kathmandu Valley; Newars. This palace was originally a royal palace before the royal family moved to another palace. Another characteristic of the palace is the only ‘living goddess of Nepal. Every year there is a celebration in the palace during the Dashain festival with the ‘Virgin Living Goddess of Nepal’.

Meals Included: Breakfast

Today is the last day for us in Nepal if we do not have any other plans to do. Depending on our flight time, we will prepare for the departure. If we have some hours, then we will probably go to the shops to see if we can find any souvenirs.
