Cultural and Religious Heritage Sites

Nepal is a land brimming with cultural and religious treasures. The cities here boast magnificent temples, giant stupas, monuments, and ancient Durbar squares bustling with religious practices. For your sightseeing in Kathmandu, you will visit the mighty Hindu Temple, Pashupatinath Temple, marvel at the majestic Boudhanath Stupa, delve into the spiritual ambience of Swayambhunath Stupa, and witness the historic charm of Kathmandu Durbar Square. In addition, several festival occasions and Jatra’s make this city a living heritage. Newari culture is one of the key attractions of Kathmandu. If your visit matches the festival time, you will be lucky to have the opportunity to witness festivals such as Indra Jatra, Bisket Jatra, Gai Jatra, and Rato Machindranath Jatra, which are noticeable Jatras (festivals) of Newari communities.

Similarly, when transitioning to Pokhara, Pokhara is a natural paradise; however, it houses several prominent religious heritage sites such as Bindhyabasini Temple, Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave, and Taal Barahi Temple, which you will be visiting during your sightseeing. These religious heritages present a spiritual essence seamlessly blending with the natural wonders of Pokhara. From the chaotic streets of Kathmandu to the serene landscape of Pokhara, Nepal’s cultural and religious diversity can be explored through this tour. 

Natural Attractions

This exciting tour will let you immerse yourself in the varied natural beauty of Nepal, letting you experience the difference as you transfer from one destination to another. Kathmandu and Pokhara, the cities you will be visiting, are major tourist hubs with an abundance of natural wonders. However, this short tour focuses on the natural wonders of Pokhara, located amidst the lap of the Himalayas, which is a chaotic yet serene destination. The scenic ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara itself offers you a changing landscape with green hills and rushing rivers alongside the drive. Here in Pokhara, you’ll encounter a variety of awe-inspiring natural attractions, including the cascading wonders of Davis Falls, the serenity of Phewa Lake with its majestic Himalayan reflections, and the breathtaking panoramic views from Sarangkot

While Pokhara is the main highlight for natural attractions, Kathmandu’s outskirts, such as Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, Chandragiri Hills, and Nagarkot, are the scenic destinations surrounding the valley, offering a range of outdoor options such as hiking, cycling, and jungle exploration to let the visitors get the best from nature. If you want to visit these areas or be involved in any of these activities, you can change your sightseeing destinations. We can personalise your experience to include the activities that best suit your desires.
