DAY 1

Kathmandu 

Meeting at airport upon arrival by TourGenie representative. Transfer to hotel. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the Kathmandu Valley is the political and cultural heart of the Kingdom. 

The urban sprawl that makes up modern Kathmandu is in fact two places, the city of Patan and Kathmandu.

DAY 2

Kathmandu 

This morning you will be taken for a visit to the most famous places showcasing Hindu culture in Nepal, Pashupatinath.  This is the place where holy saddhus pray. The Pashupatinath Temple is a famous, sacred Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Pashupatinath and is located on the banks of the Bagmati River, 5 kilometres north-east of Kathmandu Valley in the eastern city of Kathmandu, which is the capital of Nepal. This temple complex is on UNESCO World Heritage Sites' list Since 1979. This "extensive Hindu temple precinct" is a "sprawling collection of temples, ashrams, images and inscriptions raised over the centuries along the banks of the sacred Bagmati river". We then continue to the holiest shrine for the Buddhist culture in Nepal, Bouddhanath, with its large stupa, this is the place where all devout Buddhists come for a pilgrimage.

DAY 3

Kathmandu 

Today you will be taken take you for a visit to Patan. Also known as  Lalitpur, this city is separated from Kathmandu only by the Bagmati River and is the second largest town in the valley. Lalitpur is fragmented from other cities due to its substantive architectural ancient masterpieces. Patan's central Durbar Square is absolutely packed with temples: Its an architectural center point with a far greater concentration of temples per sq. meter than in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur. Of all the places, the most interesting place within the city is the Tibetan refugee center, home to most of the valley's Tibetan population.  While technically refugees, the Tibetans are some of the wealthiest people in the valley because of the carpet industry they operate.  For those looking to bring home a fine Tibetan carpet, this is the place to shop. You will then go to Swayambhunath the golden spire of the 5th-century Swayambhu stupa is adorned with a colorful fluttering of prayer flags; it crowns a hill overlooking the Kathmandu Valley and offers fantastic views over the city of Kathmandu. Swayambhunath is one of the most recognizable places and symbolizes Nepal to the world through the painted eyes of Buddha that watch all who ascend the worn stone steps.

a journey of the old bazaar can be combined with a visit to the temple. Sightseeing to Devi’s fall, also known as Patale Chango is an awesome waterfall lying 2 km southwest of Pokhara.

 During summer and rainy season, the waterfall takes its real form, with gushing water splashing and making its way through the rocks. Just opposite of Devi’s fall, on the other side of the road,
