Your tour guide will get you up from your hotel and take you to Boudhanath Stupa, which is located in the northeast corner of Kathmandu Valley. It is the largest stupa in the world and a symbol of Tibetan culture, tradition, and religion. The stupa is surrounded by calm, and the streets are lined with gift shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafés. You'll get one hour to explore this gorgeous spot. You'll pay a visit to Pashupatinath Temple, a Hindu shrine with historical and religious significance. Hundreds of Hindu devotees visit this temple alone to pray and receive blessings. If you visit this temple in February, you will be able to experience Shivaratri. It is commemorated since it is Lord Shiva's birthday. The burial and cremation may be seen on the Bagmati river bank on the other side of the temple. Now you'll be taken to Swoyambhunath, also known as the "monkey temple," by your tour guide. It is perched atop a hill with a breathtaking view of Kathmandu, overcrowding, and bustling highways. This stupa has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It houses the Gautam Buddha Museum as well as historic Buddhist holy monuments. There is a lot to observe in the city. The next stop will be Kathmandu Durbar Square. Through arts and architecture, this location has preserved Kathmandu's heritage and Nepali culture. You will have the chance to visit the "Kumari" temple, which is dedicated to the living goddess. Lunch will be served in a Nepali decent restaurant with traditional Nepali food. You may also take a trip around the square's weird street, where you might want to grab a bite to eat if it fits into your budget. Your tour guide will transport you to Patan Durbar Square. Patan, in the Kathmandu Valley, is one of the country's oldest cities, featuring many pagoda-style temples. Here you'll be able to see the city's rich architecture, culture, tradition, and landmarks. Before being transported back to your hotel by your tour guide, you'll go around Patan Durbar Square. During evening, yoga session at the hotel.
Manakamana is the Hindu Goddess's name. It is thought that the Goddess grants the people's requests. 'Mana' refers to the 'heart' or'soul,' while 'Kamana' refers to the 'desire.' Following Manakamana's service, a sightseeing tour of the local hamlet is included, as well as an overnight stay at the Manakamana Guesthouse. From Kurintar to Manakamana, there is a cable car service, Nepal's sole cable car service. It is a 10-minute cable car ride from Kurintar to Manakamana. On the way to Pokhara, Kurintar is 95 kilometers and two hours away from Kathmandu. Kurintar is located at a height of 258 meters above sea level. We shall continue our journey to Pokhara from here. Pokhara is about a 3-hour drive away with our private car. You will check into the hotel when you arrive in Pokhara. The second most popular tourist site in Nepal is located 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu at an elevation of 884 meters above sea level. Pokhara is known for the natural beauty of its magnificent lakeside setting, proximity to the mountains, and incredibly stunning views of the Fish-tail or Machapuchhare, which stands at 6997 meters. Phewa Lake, the Varahi Temple on its island, David's Fall, and Mahendra Cave are just a few of the fascinating things to see in this lovely city. Boating, fishing, and canoeing are examples of activities that can be planned.
Because of its natural beauty and attractions, Pokhara is a popular tourist destination in Nepal. After Kathmandu, it is Nepal's second largest city.

The hotel will offer breakfast, and the guide will accompany you on a day of touring. Pokhara's Peace Pagoda Stupa, Fewa Lake, Sarangkot, and different caves will be visited. You can now venture a little more afield. Drive or climb up to the Shanti Stupa (approximately an hour) (also known as the World Peace Pagoda). On a clear day, one can see the Annapurna Himalaya and down to Pokhara and Phewa Lake, thanks to a Japanese Buddhist organization that built it in 1973. Pokhara is the ideal location to attempt paragliding if you're looking for something a little more daring. Because of the consistent thermals, convenient take-off and landing places, and, of course, the wonderful views over lakes, villages, hills, and incredibly high mountains, it is frequently regarded as one of the top tandem paragliding spots in the world. The average flying time is thirty minutes. If paragliding isn't your thing, there are a variety of short walks in and around Pokhara that you may do instead, such as to the Sarangkot overlook. The major spiritual places in the city are: Bindabashini goddess temple: Located in the busy Pokhara city's northern outskirts, this is a temple dedicated to Goddess Durga, Pokhara's guardian deity. Bindabasini's gorgeous white pagoda-style temple is surrounded by a park-like environment and has a wonderful structure. The view from the crest of the hill is breathtaking. Gupteshwar Mahadev: Gupteshwar Mahadev is a Shiva temple nestled within the famed Gupteshwor cave. This cave is thought to be one of Nepal's longest caves. The roaring Davis cascade may be seen from this cave, which is near to the Davis Falls. Along the journey, we can view Lord Shiva statues and lingams here and there, and it is one of the best heritage sites. Overnight in Pokhara.
Travel to Muktinath by taking a 20-minute scenic flight from Pokhara Airport to Jomsom. The driving from Jomsom to Muktinath will take roughly 18 minutes, however the walk will take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to reach this holy spot. Muktinath Temple: Muktinath is a temple that is well-known and visited by those seeking emancipation, or "Moksh," on this planet. This is a Hindu and Buddhist sacred spot where people go to wash themselves of the sins they have committed over their lifetime. There are 108 sacred taps and two kundas called as the paap (sins) and punya (salvation), respectively. Overnight in Muktinath.
There isn't much to rush for today, so it'll be a relaxing day. After another visit to the Muktinath temple and a wander around the sacred complex, we return to Jomsom and spend the remainder of our time there. Jomsom has everything to offer for a high land’s lifestyle. Spend the night in a guesthouse.
