Day 03

In Kathmandu

  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • AM: Visit Pashupatinath Temple
  • PM: Visit Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Boudhanath Stupa
  • Overnight at the hotel

Breakfast at the hotel

Morning Visiting Pashupatinath Temple is the most sacred Hindu shrines in the world. The richly-ornamented pagoda houses the sacred linga, or phallic symbol, of Lord Shiva. Chronicles indicate the temple's existence prior to 400 AD. Devotees can be seen taking ritual dips in the holy Bagmati river flowing beside the temple. Cremation of the dead body Hindus/Buddhist takes place at the bank of Bagmati River at Pashupatinath.

Then, you will be driven to Bhaktapur for sightseeing tour of one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Visiting Bhaktapur means "the city of devotees" in Nepali language. It is also known as Bhadgaon and was founded in 889 AD by King Anand Dev. Today it covers an area of four square miles and is flanked by Khasa Khusung and Hanumante Rivers. The palace complex in the middle of the city portrays the prosperity of the Malla years and the details at which the crafts people then worked. The Palace of Fifty-five Windows stands in the square, which was also home to many kings of Bhaktapur. The kings of Bhaktapur ruled over Kathmandu and Patan from the 12th century to the 14th century.

Then you will be driven to Boudha to explore one of the largest stupas in South Asia and it is also known as a Little Tibet

Visiting Bouddhanath Stupa is among the largest stupas in South Asia, and it has become the focal point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. The white mound looms thirty-six meters overhead. The stupa is located on the ancient trade route to Tibet, and Tibetan merchants rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many of them decided to live around Bouddhanath. They established many gompas, and the "Little Tibet" of Nepal was born.

Boudhanath Stupa

This "Little Tibet" is still the best place in the Valley to observe Tibetan lifestyle. Monks walk about in maroon robes. Tibetans walk with prayer wheels in their hands, and the rituals of prostration are presented to the Buddha as worshippers circumambulate the stupa on their hands and knees, bowing down to their lord.

Evening Farewell to Nepali Dinner with a local ethnic cultural show at one of the finest Nepali Restaurant

A mixture of various ethnic groups have made Kathmandu Valley a unique place not only for its cultural and tradition, but also for its authentic cuisine. Decorated in traditional Nepali ambience, soft lights cast long shadows in the room. Tradition paintings along with old handicrafts and soft melodious music makes for a truly enchanting evening. Another feather in its cap is the traditional folk music and cultural dance program performed every evening.

The idea behind it is to familiarize the guest(s) with the costume, traditions and life styles of various ethnic groups in Nepal.

Overnight at the hotel

Meals included: Breakfast and dinner

Practical information

Notes about your Accommodation

Although accommodation choices in Nepal are expanding and overall standards improving, please note that whatever the level, from basic guesthouse to high end city centre hotel, you should always be prepared for standards to be different than in the West. For example, even in the best hotels, plumbing and electricity supplies can be somewhat erratic and although the welcome is always warm, service levels may be less efficient than you may be used to.

Natraj Trekking will be pleased to welcome all category of clients, hence, we have categorized package trip as Standard, Superior and Deluxe as per the categories of hotel (e.g. 3, 4, 5 star hotels at each place). Please note that our ground services are same either client chooses Standard or Deluxe package but hotels will be different (as per the category). Our selection of hotels to be used for any category are chosen based on standard of hygiene, standard of service and food, location, etc

Best Season

Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and spring (February to April) are the best seasons for the Discover Nepal tour. However, this tour can be organized throughout the year.

What to Wear

Light weight clothing is recommended from May through October. Warm garments are required in October- March. An umbrella or a raincoat is a must for the rainy season (May to August)

Packing for your trip

Here we make a few specific recommendations with regard to your tour. Please use this list as a guideline. Adjustments to the list can be done according to your needs, interests, duration of your trip, season of your trip, etc.

Luggage: One main piece of baggage and a daypack. You will find it more convenient to travel light when outside Kathmandu. Any extra luggage can be stored in Kathmandu hotel. Total allowance: 44lbs/20kgs.

Clothing: You can expect to wear short sleeved shirts and t-shirts during the day in the Spring and Autumn months but it does get cool in the evening, so bring some warmer clothing as well (especially in Dec/Jan as these are the coldest months). It's worth bringing a good quality waterproof. No bright coloured clothing for Chitwan. Do not wear lycra tights or leggings or very short shorts as the Nepalese find these offensive.

Footwear: Comfortable shoes (eg. trainers) and sandals, plus lightweight boots if you wish to take part in any walks.

Equipment: A torch. Binoculars for animal & bird watching in Chitwan National Park, a universal bath plug and antibacterial hand wash, are useful to have along.

Recommend clothes for Chitwan Visit

A jacket or sweater from November through February. Lightest clothing with sunglasses and hats from April onwards. Pants should be worn during elephant rides. Bright colours such as red and white should be avoided since these colours have been known to upset the rhinos. Comfortable walking shoes are essential. Please carry only the bare necessities but not jewellery and valuable items. During the warmer months swimming suits are recommended

Pre-Trip Meeting

On the second day of the itinerary (before you departure for the city tour- about 8 AM), we host a Pre-Trip short Meeting at the hotel by your our guide. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide tour briefing and other practical information regarding trip.

Please bring the following thing on the meeting
  • Passport copy
  • Travel Insurance Policy
Electricity in Nepal

Nepal's Electricity is 220-240 Volts and 50 MHZ (some countries like U.S and Canada are 110-120 volts/60 MHZ).

  • In Nepal electric Plugs are of two or three round prongs, but not flat prongs as found in use in the United States or in other countries.
  • If your appliance's plug doesn't match the shape of these sockets, you will need a travel plug adapter in order to plug in. Travel plug adapters simply change the shape of your appliance's plug to match whatever type of socket you need to plug into. If it's crucial to be able to plug in no matter what, bring an adapter for both types.
  • If you are planning on taking a hair dryer, electric shaver, curling iron, laptop computer or other electrical devices on your travels, in these cases, you will need to obtain either a voltage adapter (electrical converter) or a plug adapter for your travels, most often both. Most voltage adapters for travel convert 220-240 to 110-120, usable by your American and similar appliance. A plug adapter, on the other hand, allows you to plug into a foreign outlet.
Note on Itinerary

Although we do our very best to adhere to the schedule above, Discover Nepal tour itinerary is subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control including unexpected weather and terrain conditions.

Why with Natraj Trekking

Natraj Trekking is the one of the leading and oldest tour operator in Nepal since 1967. We organize tour for Tibet and Bhutan as well. We excel in this field because we genuinely love what we do and are committed to providing you with the best services as we commit you.


Tipping is the accepted way of saying 'thank you' for good service. Tips do not form part of the wages of your guides, porters and trek crew but they are very much appreciated. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. Normally the tips are given at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the tips with a bit of ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last evening, to mark the end of the trip. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work.
