Half day sightseeing
Pashupati Temple.One of the most mesmerizing rituals at Pashupatinath Temple is the Pashupati Bagmati Aarati (a religious ritual which involves cleansing in the river, or in oil). Bagmati is the holy river which flows through the temple. The river divides the temple into two sides, with the main Pashupatinath Temple being on one side and the location of the Aarati is performed on the other.Bagmati has great importance in Hindu religion. It is believed that taking a holy bath on this river washes away sins.
Swyambhy Stupa (Monkey Temple)A journey up to the Buddhist temple and Unesco World Heritage Site of Swayambhunath is one of the definitive experiences of Kathmandu. Mobbed by monkeys and soaring above the city on a lofty hilltop, the ‘Monkey Temple’ is a fascinating, chaotic jumble of Buddhist and Hindu iconography. Even the 2015 earthquake failed to topple Kathmandu's best loved temple. You will see many monkeys who will continue to go about their business while you enjoy the views of the stupa. You can also walk up the 365 stone steps and be rewarded with a view of the whole Kathmandu Valley along with the monkeys.
Bhaktapur Durbar Square
After breakfast there will be a shorter drive to Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Bhaktapur, once the capital city of the Malla reign has remained one of the major attractions for tourists from the beginning of tourism activities in Nepal. Since the downfall of the Rana-Regime, Nepal has opened up to the outside world and has observed gradual growth in incoming cultural tourists. Many tourism entrepreneurs have established souvenir shops in Bhaktapur and it is a bustling, spiritual place. Enjoy the rustic shops, local Nepalese people and the magnificent temples surrounding you.
Patan Durbar Square is the ancient Royal Palace of Patan and faces on to a magnificent Durbar Square. This concentrated mass of temples is perhaps the most visually stunning display of Newari architecture to be seen in Nepal.
