Outline Itinerary

Welcome to the Himalayan Kingdom Nepal. Upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel room by one of the Pearl Holiday representatives. A short meeting will be held to introduce you to your guide and to discuss in brief about your tour in Nepal.

On your first day of the trip, you will visit four UNESCO enlisted cultural heritage sites of the valley, Swayambhunath, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Boudhanath, and Pashupatinath. With an early morning breakfast, you will first visit the UNESCO enlisted cultural heritage site Swayambhunath. Swayambhunath: Dedicated to Lord Buddha, Swayambhunath is a Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site. Discovered in the 5th century, the stupa consists of a dome as the base representing the world, above which is a cubical structure painted with the eyes of Buddha watching over the city from all directions. Along with this, there is a pentagonal toran present above each of the four sides with statues engraved in them. Behind and above the Torana there are thirteen tiers of enlightenment. In front of the stupa is the Harati temple dedicated to goddess Harati as a guardian temple of the stupa. The stupa is adorned by the prayer flags of different colors each carrying representing different meanings. Visit the Dewa Dharma Monastery, peace pond, and enjoy the 360-degree panorama of the city from the top of the hillock. Kathmandu Durbar Square: The Kathmandu Durbar Square is the former residence of the Malla and Shah kings who ruled over the city many years ago. The complex is surrounded by quadrangles, revealing courtyards and temples adding beauty to the place. It is known as Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square, a name derived from a statue of Hanuman, the monkey devotee of Lord Ram, at the entrance of the palace. The area is the most visited place inside the valley with many attractions including Taleju Bhawani temple, Kumari Ghar, Gaddhi Baithak, Kal Bhairav, and many more. Explore the site and admire the complex Newari architecture that dates back to centuries ago. Pashupatinath Temple: The Hindu pilgrimage site, Pashupatinath is located at the bank of the holy river Bagmati. Built by Prachanda Deva in the 5th century, the temple has an enormous figure of Shiva lingam enclosed inside the highly ornated silver doors. Accompanying the main temple of Pashupatinath are other numbers of temples dedicated to different gods and goddesses. The cremation site at the bank of the river is another thing you will see during your visit. The cremation ritual of the Hindu is followed by a number of rituals that will be the attraction for you in this visit. Get the details of the rituals and their importance from your guide. Boudhanath: The largest stupa in the world, the stupa of Boudhanath dominates the skyline with its 36-meter height. With monasteries and Tibetan communities residing around the area, Boudha is the center of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. The stupa replicates the Mandala of Gyangtse of Tibet, and is one of the major pilgrimage sites for Buddhists from around the world. The massive stupa has 147 niches and 108 images of the meditational Buddha inset behind copper prayer wheels. Just like that of the Swayambhunath, the stupa also has compassionate eyes of Buddha on each side symbolizing awareness and the 13 tiers of symbolizing the way to enlightenment. Circumambulate the big prayer wheels and visit the monastery while you get the full details on the site from your guide. All of the cultural heritage sites you have visited today have complex metal and wood carvings that depict the tales of different events and symbols of the deities. After completing the sightseeing, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Pokhara. On your Pokhara arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel room where you will spend the night.

Pokhara the magical city here we come. The major highlight of the day will be the sunrise view from Sarangkot, Paragliding, and then a tour around the city. So the trip starts early in the morning from the vantage point Sarangkot. Sarangkot: A place in Pokhara you cannot miss visiting. Elevating at an altitude of 1600m, Sarangkot is renowned for its panoramic Himalayan range including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Macchapuchre. The viewpoint provides an expansive view of the city extending from north to the south including the Phewa Lake. Early in the morning, people gather in Sarangkot to enjoy the view of the sun coming above the Himalayas scattering its golden light all over the snow-capped pinnacles. Enjoy the magnificent views and click pictures to capture the splendid moment. Paragliding: Apart from just enjoying the panorama from the hills of Sarangkot, one can actually glide in the air of Sarangkot while enjoying the unobstructed sights of the lakes, city, and Himalayas. In recent years, Paragliding has become the topmost attraction of Sarangkot. The city is considered to be one of the best places in the world for tandem paragliding, hence as the day begins, you can see parachute flying up above in the sky in a very large number. On this day tour, you will get a chance to glide up in the sky and enjoy the sights for 30-45 minutes or even for an hour according to your choice. Pokhara city sightseeing: Pokhara is blessed with a number of attractions that will make your Pokhara tour worthwhile. In order to make sure that you don’t miss the magnificent places to visit in Pokhara, we have selected the top 5 best attractions of the Pokhara city. Phewa Lake: Boating in Phewa lake is something you cannot afford to miss while you are in Pokhara. The second-largest freshwater lake in Nepal, Phewa lake is one of the major attractions of Pokhara. Situated in the middle of the lake is the two-storied Pagoda style temple, Tal Barahi temple. Dedicated to the goddess Durga, the temple and the lake both have religious importance to the Nepalese. Davis fall: The stunning Davis fall fed by the Phewa lake creates a 500 feet long underground tunnel as it reaches its bottom. Originated from the water of Phewa lake, the mysterious fall does not flow into a river but into a pitch dark hole that disappears in the Gupteshwor cave leaving a gushing sound. Gupteshwor cave: Discovered in the 16th century, the Gupteshwor cave is located near the Davis fall and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The inner sanctum of the 3 km long cave has a self-emerging Shiva Lingam. Visitors will be able to explore the long, deep, and dark cave and witness other numerous figures of gods and goddesses lying close to God Shiva. International Mountain Museum: Established in 1995, the International Mountain Museum in Pokhara has documentation of the history, development, and the legendary achievements in mountaineering in Nepal and throughout the world. The museum has a remarkable collection of artifacts, original gears, stories, and photographs of the mountains, inhabitants of the mountain region, and the explorers who have climbed the highest peaks in the world. Apart from this, the museum also gives an elaborative description of the Himalayan life and about its inhabitant through different media. After visiting these attractions, you will get back to Kathmandu for your next day's flight to your home.

This is the last day of your amazing trip. Activities can be added in today's itinerary if your flight is in the evening or in the afternoon.

Trekking Grade:

The Everest base camp trip is a fairly challenging journey. It is moderately long trekking which goes into the country's most elevated mountain. So travelers require more energy and the trip is actually tiring which includes 5-8 hrs. (approx.) of walking per day on the rocky edges. It doesn't require previous experience, but you must be physically healthy and better if you do regular exercise. If you love walking at high altitude, then this trip is for you.
