The real start of your tour of Kathmandu is today. So, this is a big day for you. You'll soon get to discover the unique culture of this lovely city. Kathmandu is the capital and largest city of Nepal. Its most famous destination is, of course, the famous Durbar Square.

Your tour guide will stroll you along with the Kathmandu Durbar Square. This square is replete with amazing ancient palaces and temples. It is a showcase of Nepali architecture and culture. It is situated in front of the old royal palace, surrounded by great architecture that colorfully showcases the craftsmanship of Nepali artists of the past centuries. Here, you will see the palaces of the Shah and Malla Kings.

You'll also get to visit the Pashupatinath Temple, one of Hinduism's holiest places in the world. It is located along the riverbanks of the Bagmati River. This temple complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you will be bewildered by the sprawling collection of ashrams, temples, images, and inscriptions.

Afterward, you can go straight to the Boudhanath Stupa, the world’s largest stupa and a UNESCO Heritage Site. Its massive mandala is very impressive. Then, you will see the Swayambhunath Temple, in the west of Kathmandu City. Its name, of course, means "self-existent. This temple is known for the monkeys that reside in the area. Hence, it is also alternately called the "Monkey Temple." The monkeys in this temple are playful and known for their notoriety; so be very careful in dealing with them.

It is a lovely and pleasant lake city, considered as the tourism capital of Nepal. Pokhara is best known as an adventure tourist site. You can enjoy paragliding or bungee jumping per request. At Pokhara and surrounding valley, you will see myriads of ancient temples and gambas, as well as the captivating view of the Annapurna range.

While the first glimmer of the dawn comes, our driver will drive you to the upper parts of the Sarangkot. Arrive at the parking lot in about 30 minutes, you will walk to the observation deck and wait quietly for the magnificent sunrise. View for an hour, our driver will send you to your hotel for breakfast. Paraglide in Sarangkot is available on request. In just a short run, you can rise into the air, to view the magnificent lakes and mountains. Pokhara is called "the city of lakes", which is dotted with calm lakes, and we believe that the view of Lake Phewa, with its tranquil fishtail peak in the background, will inspire your photography.

Davis Falls is a famous waterfall near Pokhara. The wonderful thing about this waterfall is that below there is a Mahadev Cave, also known as Gupteshwor Cave. The waterfall suddenly disappears in the cave and then emerges from the ground several kilometers away to form an overground river. The cave is bubbling with hot air all year round, and you can feel the obvious heat with your hand.

The Seti River Gorge is the most beautiful section of the Seti River, which flows right through Pokhara city. The canyon is deep, more than 100 meters high, and the view of the valley is magnificent and beautiful. Visitors can experience its majesty while walking across a drawbridge (Mahendra Bridge).

Bindabasini Temple is the most famous temple in the old city of Pokhara and is also a good viewing platform. It is dedicated to Goddess Durga- the deity of supreme power, which is right in the center of the Old Bazaar. Stroll around the bazaar, an ethnic marketplace with three to four kilometers of shops, bars or restaurants along Lake Side, you can buy some souvenirs or enjoy some Nepalese cuisine to relax.

After dinner, walk around the Lakeside area, you will find there is a lot more to do in the evening.
