FULL DAY KATHMANDU TOUR

Breakfast at hotel AM: Visit Monastery and Kapan Nunnery Kapan Monastery lies to the north of the famous Boudhanath Stupa and is a monastery in Gelug tradition of Tibetan Mahayan Buddhism. Gifted with a majestic view of the city, the Monastery also is a home for 360 monks, lamas, teachers and workers alike from all over Nepal and Tibet. The Monastery is committed in helping all beings develop their full potential of infinite wisdom and compassion as taught by Lama Thubten Yeshe, the establisher of this monastery. (Note: Visitors are restricted during the course of meditation retreat in Kapan Monastery. These courses only take place if there are enough students. In such case, alternative monastery visit in the same area will be provided) Kapan nunnery was established more than 2 decades ago under the spiritual guidance of the founders of Kopan Monastery, there has been rapid growth as there were only few nunneries in Nepal and India. Each year the nunnery admits 30 nuns. 50% of these nuns are orphaned, 25% come from homes with single parents and the rest from very poor families. The nunnery provides full scholarship to each and every nun including accommodation, healthcare, food and education. Many of the nuns go on to become doctorates in Buddhism and inspirational spiritual teachers. We will have a lunch on Local Restaurant.. PM: Proceed for sightseeing tour to Pashupatinath Temple and the Boudhanath Stupa Pashupatinath temple: One of the most sacred Hindu shrines in the world, Pashupatinath lies in the bank of river Bagmati. The two-storied pagoda houses a sacred lingum, or the phallic symbol of Lord Shiva. Although the temple dates back to the 4th century, it was brought into its present shape in the early 18th century. The temple is most noted for its gold-plated roofs and silver-coated doors. Sadhus and sages, who follow the lifestyle of Lord Shiva, are seen covered with ashes and loincloths. The banks of the river Bagmati, is also considered one of the holiest places in which to get cremated and cremations can be witnessed here. All tourists are requested that certain respect is shown for the grieving. Continue to Boudhanath, possibly the world's largest Buddhist Stupa and a site of great veneration for Buddhists. Around the stupa have sprung up number of monasteries of the different sections of Tibetan Buddhism including one (on the west side of the stupa) that houses an enormous seated statue of Maitreya Buddha splendidly adorned.

KATHMANDU

KATHMANDU – POKHARA BY FLIGHT

Breakfast at hotel Fly to Pokhara and transfer to hotel. Flight time: 30 min Pokhara, Sub-Metropolitan City is the second largest city of Nepal and is situated about 200 km west of the capital Kathmandu. It serves as the headquarters of Kaski District, Gandaki Zone and the Western Development Region. Pokhara is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. Three out of the ten highest mountains in the world — Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu — are situated within 30 miles (linear distance) of the city, so that the northern skyline of the city offers a very close view of the Himalayas. Due to its proximity to the Annapurna mountain range, the city is also a base for trekkers undertaking the Annapurna Circuit through the ACAP region of the Annapurna ranges in the Himalayas. PM: Half day sightseeing tour of Pokhara Valley Devi’s Fall: Locally known as Patale Chango (Hell’s Fall) also known as Devins and Davids is a lovely Waterfall which is about 2 km south West of Pokhara airport on the Siddhartha Highway. Legend has it that a trekker by the name of Davy, was washed away by the Padi Khola and mysteriously disappeared down into an underground passage beneath the fall. Mahendra Cave: Another of nature’s wonders in Pokhara is the Mahendra gufa. This large limestone cave is locally known as the House of Bats an apt name for it. A two- hour's walk to the north of Pokhara, it is best to bring our own torch to see the stalactites and stalagmites, as well as the local winged residents. Seti Gandaki Gorge: Another of Pokhara's natural wonders is the Seti Gandaki River. Flowing right through the city, the boisterous river runs underground at places. Amazingly, at certain places the river appears hardly two meters wide. However, its depth is quite beyond imagination, over 20m. Mahendra pul, a small bridge near the old mission hospital, provides a perfect view of the river’s dreadful rush and the deep gorge made by its powerful flow. Read more

PM: Visit Mountain Museum and Gurkha Museum Mountain Museum: Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), established on 1 Nov 1973, initiated the establishment of International Mountain Museum (IMM) in Pokhara.
