    Major Highlights of the Tour (We will visit the Following Sites)

    1. Swayambhunath Stupa - The Monkey Temple (World Heritage Site):

    Swayambhunath Stupa is the oldest and most enigmatic of all the sacred sites in the Kathmandu valley, Swayambhunath Stupa is a golden spire perched atop a conical wooded hill. From every angle of the valley, one can see its tall white dome and glistening golden spire. The stupa was a significant Buddhist pilgrimage site by the fifth century AD, according to historical documents discovered on a stone inscription. You can watch over the valley from the top of a hillock on its western side. Since there are so many monkeys living there, Swayambhu is also known as Samhengu and the Monkey Temple.

    2. Pashupatinath Temple (World Heritage Site):

    Pashupatinath Temple is one of the holiest Hindu temples in Nepal. It is located on the banks of the Bagmati River on the eastern edges of Kathmandu. Pashupatinath is the most important temple dedicated to the god Shiva. There are several monkeys wandering over the entire Pashupatinath area. While exploring the holy temple you may see some sadhu baba Ji as well. Sadhus are nomadic yogis who practice asceticism in an effort to break free from the cycle of rebirth and death. They have very distinctive features, including distinctive yellow body paints.

    Many people travel there solely to participate in the large Aarati that the temple’s pujari performs to worship Lord Shiva each evening. People travel from all over the world to Pashupatinath to celebrate Shivaratri, also known as the Night of Lord Shiva, which is a widely observed celebration in Nepal.

    3. Boudhanath Stupa (World Heritage Site):

    Boudhanath Stupa is a 2500 years old Buddhist stupa in the Valley built in the 5th century and since then it has stood solidly on the skyline, commanding it with its purity and beauty. It is the largest spherical stupa in Nepal and one of the biggest stupas in all of Asia. Boudhanath is a highly well-liked tourist site. More than 50 monasteries surround the stupa complex, which is surrounded by a sizable population of Tibetan refugees and Buddhist pilgrims. The architecture of the monasteries was influenced by Tibetan exiles. 

    Boudhanath stupa is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Kathmandu, which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. The Boudhanath stupa is designed like a mandala. It stands for a three-dimensional representation of the Buddha's journey toward enlightenment. And with four pairs of eyes of Lord Buddha in four cardinal directions keeping an eternal watch over the people and their doings. Besides Buddhist people, numerous other religious individuals also visit the buddha stupa on a daily basis. These places are pristine and tranquil, which gives off a wonderful aura. The aroma of various incense fragrances fills the air around Boudhanath. The atmosphere feels more pleasant, religious, and pure.

    4. Patan Durbar Square (World Heritage Site):

    The Patan Durbar Square, located in the center of Lalitpur District, is home to a vast collection of excellent art and architecture that our predecessors carved and etched on wood and metal. This city is renowned for its temples, shrines, statues, monuments, festivals, culture, etc. that showcase the craftsmanship of our ancestors. Even today, when we go through Patan's narrow lanes, we can hear the tapping of tiny hammers being used by artisans to create various idols and ornaments.

    The territory of Patan showcases Newari architecture and cultural & customs that peaked during the rule of Malla rulers who were excellent builders and lovers of the arts. The locals celebrate a lot of jatra and other cultural events over there and this place is one of the best tourist destinations included in the valley tour.

      Thank you for the excellent service.

      We had a great experience in Nepal with Luxury Holidays Nepal.  It was easy and comfortable to confirm and book the tour. We were very happy with the services of LHN. The Tour Guide  Rahul was so nice. He assisted us very well during the tour. The Driver Krishna was also very good. He helped and supported us in carrying our luggage and his driving skill is amazing. They managed our trip very beautifully and provide us with comfortable accommodation. We enjoyed every moment of this trip. We’re planning on another trip with LHN next year and had requested Rahul again as our guide.
