You will arrive in Nepal at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (IATA code: KTM). The transfer to the hotel will follow immediately.

Kathmandu, the colourful capital of Nepal, is a fascinating blend of traditional architecture and symbols of the 20th Century. Its rich artistic and cultural heritage is evident where ornately carved balconies mingle with beautiful shrines and temples.

The first day of your tour is simply an arrival day with no pre-organised activities, in order to allow time to relax and see some of the sights of your own.

Explore on foot or bi-cycle Rickshaw the many attractions this city has to offer. The backstreets around Durbar Square and Palace are bustling with life with throngs of people going about their lives and selling on the road. Random cows wander the streets, taxis hoot and narrow alleyways overflow with spices, vegetables and handicraft shops with intriguing and unpleasant smells, incessant noise and pollution – triggering a sensory overload. You could also venture to ominously named freak street or Jochne named by the hippies during the 1970s.

Overnight stay in Kathmandu

The morning in Kathmandu is reserved for sightseeing: a visit to Swayambhunath and a tour of Kathmandu, also known as Kantipur, the capital of the Kingdom of Nepal. Foreign tourists have only been allowed to visit the kingdom, which was previously hermetically sealed off from the outside world, since 1950. It is not primarily the numerous palaces and temples of art-historical significance that make it one of the most fantastic destinations in the world.

The very special atmosphere of Nepal is rather to be captured on the bazaars in the alleys, in the colourful hustle and bustle between worldly and sacred life, between working and living. The Hanuman Dhoka Palace on Kathmandu’s Durban Square in the middle of the numerous temples of the old city, where the last Nepalese royal family had its seat until 1908, is literally outstanding. To this day, the most important Hindu festivals are celebrated at this place. Look forward to visiting the temple of the “Living Goddess”, where the Kumari embodies the tutelary goddess of the Hindu kings of the valley, Taleju, and has a third eye on her forehead, which symbolizes her divine power.

She is allowed to exercise her office only as long as she is pure in the ritual sense, which means that she must not bleed. With the first menstruation this has an end. Now you drive to the Swaysambhunath Stupa, which is 4 km away. It is the oldest stupa in Nepal with about 2,000 years of age and stands on a western hill. From here the all-seeing eyes of Buddha can overlook the Kathmandu valley. The importance of this stupa for the Buddhists can be compared to that of Pashupati for the Hindus. The history of its origin is accompanied by numerous legends that go back 200,000 years when the Kathmandu Valley was created.

Pashupatinath, the most important sanctuary of the Hindu world besides the Indian Varanasi, is located 5 km east of Kathmandu’s centre and is the seat of Shiva. Whoever dies here reaches Shiva’s residence directly, Shivakola, without having to make the long journey of births and rebirths. There are eight fireplaces in front of the temple where families can say goodbye to their deceased before their sons scatter their ashes in the Bagmati River. Tourists are only allowed to view the temple from the eastern side of the river.

Only Hindus are allowed to enter the temple; non-Hindua are excluded from the interior of the main temple, which is strictly monitored. The highlight of the year is Shivaratri Day in February or March, when Pashupatinath becomes an important pilgrimage centre.

Afterwards you drive to Bodnath to visit the 40m high stupa there. The diameter of the largest stupa in Nepal is 100m in the base. King Man had it built in honour of Buddha in the 6th century. Following the advice of the divine Mani Jogini, it was built on a base with an octagonal shape, which is a perfect mandala when viewed from above. Overnight stay in Kathmandu.

Today’s program is a visit to Chitwan National Park on the Indian border, which was founded in 1973 as Chitwan National Park, the first national park in India.

It covers an area of 932 square kilometres of the southern foothills of the Himalayas, the Terai, and borders directly on India in the south. It has been declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, which is not surprising given the abundant wildlife of rhinos, elephants, Bengal tigers, leopards and bears, to name but the most important. Gangetic dolphins and crocodiles are at home in the Narayani River and 450 bird species complete the wildlife paradise. Overnight stay in Chitwan National Park.

The whole day is reserved for visiting the National Park. Here you can expect elephant safaris, boat trips, game drives and a hike, always accompanied by experienced guides who have all kinds of background knowledge and are happy to pass this on to you. Overnight stay in Chitwan National Park.

You drive to the geographical centre of the country to Pokhara, 200 km west of Kathmandu. The southern edge of Pokhara forms the shore of Lake Phewa, the second largest lake in Nepal, and in the north the southernmost river of the Annapurna Massif borders the urban area. In Nepal’s third largest city with 190,000 inhabitants, the residences of the gods, i.e. the natural sanctuaries, are the focus of attention rather than those created by man.
