Begin your journey with an introductory tour of Kathmandu City. Visit Durbar Square, an intricate network of palaces, courtyards and temples. This was once the seat of the ancient Malla kings of Kathmandu. Head to Swayambhunath Stupa, which is perhaps Nepal’s most iconic temple complex. Afterwards, continue on to the colourful Boudhanath Stupa. This is the largest and most popular Buddhist complex in Nepal, drawing in many Buddhist pilgrims from around the world. A pair of giant painted eyes at the top of the temple, recalling those of the Buddha, keep a watchful gaze over the surrounding town. Proceed to Nagarkot and step back in time in Bhaktapur City, a living museum of remarkable medieval pagodas carved with elaborate Buddhist and Hindu symbols, and cobblestone streets and alleys peppered with redbrick homes.

Notes: Some major and significant historical sites in Kathmandu were extensively damaged by the earthquake in 2015 and are currently being restored.

Boudhanath Stupa
Rise early today for your chance to observe one of the best sunrise views of the Himalayas. Enjoy a picturesque drive to Pokhara with breathtaking views of the snow-capped Himalayan mountain range from afar. Pokhara is an idyllic lakeside city and the gateway to the Annapurna Circuit – one of the most popular trekking circuits, with excellent vantage points of the mighty Mount Everest. At the borders of Pokhara is Phewa Lake where it is possible to see Macchapucchre and Annapurna mountain ranges reflected on the surface of the crystal clear water.
Phewa Lake
Visit Sarangkot this morning, from where you can see Annapurna and the peaks of Dhaulagiri (8167m) in the west, to Maccapuchhare (6997m), and the rounded peak of Annapurna II (7937m) in the east. Thereafter, visit a Tibetan refugee camp. Many Tibetan refugees fled to this city in the 1960s after the Chinese invasion of Tibet, and now live here in exile. Most are self-sufficient, earning their living selling souvenirs around the lakeside or producing and trading woollen carpets and other handicraft items. Travel onwards to Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave, a cave dedicated to Lord Shiva, one of the many Hindu gods.
Himalayas
Return to Kathmandu, stopping at Thamel, a shopping mecca in Nepal. Meander through shops for souvenirs such as handicrafts, jewellery, or clothing, or relax and unwind at a local café. Dine on authentic Nepalese cuisine and enjoy a dance performance this evening.
