Days   Activity
1   Arrival in Kathmandu, transfer to hotel. Briefing in the evening

2   Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing:
Boudhanath: This ancient colossal Stupa is one of the biggest in the world. The base of the stupa takes the shape of a mandala (symbolizing earth): on this four tiered base sits the dome (symbolizing water): then comes the spire (symbolizing fire): the umbrella (symbolizing air) and the pinnacle (symbolizing ether). The spire is made up of 13 steps, representing the 13 stages on the journey to nirvana. Pashupatinath: The most important Hindu temple in Nepal. It's one of the most important Shiva temples on the subcontinent and draws numerous devotees from all over Nepal and India. Kathmandu Durbar Square: Durbar in Nepali means 'palace' and in Patan and Bhaktapur, as well as Katmandu, there are Durbar Squares in front of the old palaces. The king no longer resides in the old Royal Palace in Katmandu: the palace was moved north to Narayanhiti about a century ago. Clustered around the central Durbar Square and the old Royal Palace (Hanuman Dhoka) are numerous interesting temples, the Kumari Chowk or Kumari Bahal (House of the Living Goddess) and the Kasthamandap (House of Wood)

3   Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing:
Patan Durbar Square: Patan is separated from Kathmandu only by the Bagmati River and is sometimes referred to as Lalitpur, which means 'city of beauty'. Patan has a long Buddhist history and the four corners of the city are marked by stupas said to have been erected by the great Buddhist emperor Ashoka around 250 B.C.Patan's central Durbar Square is absolutely packed with temples: it's an architectural feast with a far greater concentration of temples per sq. meter than in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur. Swayambhunath: The Buddhist temple of Swayambunath, situated on the top of a hill west of the city, is one of the most popular and instantly recognizable symbols of Nepal. The temple is colloquially known as the 'monkey temple' after the large tribe of monkeys that guard the hill and amuse visitors and devotees with their tricks and antics.

4   Drive to Sundarijal:
Sundarijal means â??beautiful waterâ? and you will see numerous waterfalls along the way. Hike uphill to Chisopani. The views of Himalayas are stunning from this area. About 6 hours walking.

5   Hike to Nagarkot:
Walk northeast in the Shivapuri Nature reserve. Look for some of the many birds that are common here - the plaintive Himalayan babbler, a flock of bright mini vets or perhaps spy a crested serpent eagle patrolling the treetops. It is an easy walk over ridges and through villages with excellent mountain views and valley. Overnight in Nagarkot.

6   An early morning rise for those who wish to see the Sunrise over the Himalayas. After breakfast in Nagarkot, Drive to Changunarayan and Bhaktapur
Bhaktapur: The third of the valley's ancient cities is another century-long rival of Katmandu. It has an impressive number of artistic treasures; it is rightly called "a living museum". The oldest part of the town is around Tachupal Tole (Dattatraya Square), to the east. Bhaktapur was the capital of the whole valley during the 14th to 16the centuries and during that time the focus of the town-shifted west, to the Durbar Square area. Much of the town's great architecture dates from the end of the 17th century during the rule of King Bhupatendra Malla. Changu Narayan: The beautiful and historic temple of Changu Narayan stands on a hilltop at the eastern end of the valley, about four km north of Bhaktapur. Although the temple dates from 1702, when it was rebuilt after a fire, its origins go right back to the 4th century and there are many important stone images and sculptures dating from the Licchavi period. Drive to Kathmandu. Overnight in Kathmandu.
