DETAIL ITENIRARY

Our tour leader will be at the airport with our company’s logo. Once you will met the leader you will be warmly welcomed and will be transferred via chartered vehicle to the hotel in Kathmandu which will require approx. half an hour’s drive through roads and intricate streets. And after check-in at the hotel and refreshing, you will be briefed regarding your hotel, its surrounding areas and your wonderful tour itself.
Today after breakfast, we shall commence our sightseeing at four must see UNESCO World Heritage Sites namely SwayambhuNath Stupa, Kathmandu Durbar Square, BoudhaNath Stupa and PashupatiNath Temple where each has the history of Kathmandu Valley’s establishment. Kathmandu, also known as ‘The City of Temples’, is vibrant and has many histories and mythologies.SwayambuNath Stupa: Located in the eastern outskirt of Kathmandu and atop a foothill, SwayambhuNath Stupa; the oldest stupa in Nepal, is a drive of approx. 15 minutes. The main entrance to the stupa is at the base of the foothill and is facing east from where 365 stone-steps (each represents a day of the year) lead all the way up to the top. The scared area of the stupa comprises monasteries, Ajima (Hindu Temple with goddess) and the white dome itself right in the centre. Since the stupa is atop the foothill, it offers wonderful views of Kathmandu Valley and amazing Langtang mountain range up in the north. The stupa is also known as Monkey Temple amongst foreigners as holy monkeys dwell there.Kathmandu Durbar Square: Located right in the centre of Kathmandu city, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a drive of approx. 10 minutes eastwards from SwayambhuNath Stupa and was the palace for Malla Kings and even for some Shah Kings. The area comprises many pagoda styled artistic Hindu temples built between 12th to 18th centuries as well as the temple namely Kasthamandap, which was built with the wood from a single tree and also where Kathmandu derived its name from. The area also houses Living Goddess Kumari (A young virgin girl from Shakya clan who is selected as the goddess Kumari via tough competition. Once she reaches her puberty or receives heavy loss of blood due to wounds/cuts, she is replaced with the other young virgin girl who will have to go through the same tough completion).BouddhaNath Stupa:BouddhaNath Stupa is the largest stupa ever built in Nepal. The stupa is located in the north-east outskirt of Kathmandu and is a drive of approx.20 minutes north-eastwards from Kathmandu Durbar Square. An old trading route between British-India and China-Tibet used to pass through this area so it became popular with Tibetans, for some of the Tibetan businessmen settled here for their business prosperity. The main stupa is right in the middle and is surrounded by souvenir shops, restaurants, Tibetan painting schools and monasteries.PashupatiNath Temple: Located in the eastern part of Kathmandu and on the west bank of holy Bagmati River, PashupatiNath Stupa is approx. drive of 10 minutes southwards from BouddhaNath Stupa. The temple belongs to Lord Shiva and is considered as the holiest Hindu’s temple of whose river bank sees cremations. Hindus only are allowed into the main temple complex whereas Non-Hindus are allowed to view the temple from the eastern bank of Bagmati River.This Evening,we shall drive to Nagakot via Arniko Highway (it leads to Tibet eventually) first and then through winding road up to the top of Nagarkot itself. First, we shall pass through the most developed areas of the cityand then through typical countryside.Nagarkot:Located eastwards from Kathmandu, Nagarkot is a popular hill-town and is approx. 1 hour’s drive from Kathmandu. The drive to Nagarkot is scenic and offers wonderful views of surrounding areas including snowy mountains at the north. One can enjoy the splendid views of green hills, valleys and above all – the magical vistas of panoramic snowy mountains starting from Dhaulagiri (8167m; the eight highest mountain on earth) at far left to the Mt. Everest (8150m; the highest mountain on earth) at far right. 
Today, we make an hour's drive to Sundarijal (1350m), our trek start point. From Sundarijal, trek to Chisopani (2300m). We begin our trek along a small hydroelectric plant. The trail then enters through into the Shivapuri National Park.  The first settlement we come across is Mulkharka mostly inhabited by the Tamang people. Then we walk along the ridge through a forest of oaks and rhododendron to Chisopani. 
After taking our morning breakfast, we head for a journey to Kutumsang. Our today's trek starts with a decent crossing meadows and fields. Enjoy the magnificent views of the Langtang mountains. Thus we arrive at Pathi Bhanjyang and Gul Bhanjyang. From Gul Bhanjyang, the trail climbs the ridge to another pass. Another downhill trek from the pass takes us to Kutumsang. 
We climb above Kutumsang on a steep trail mostly through fir and rhododendron forest where there are no permanent settlements. The trek continues to Yurin Danda with magnificent views of the Himalayas. Finally, we arrive at Tharepati for our overnight stay. 
Today we head for Tarkeghyang. During early part of the trek, the trail descends until we cross the Melamchi Khola. Then we trek up to Tarkeghyang passing through Sherpa settlements. Enjoy the Himalayan peaks ofter appear before you glistening in the sunshine. Discover the village and its monastery which is one of the oldest and biggest monasteries in the region. The village is more popularly known as Helambu, since most of the inhabitants belong to the Helmu caste. 
Since, we do not gain altitude that much today, it's going to be comparatively easy walk today. We forests, streams, and waterfalls. The trail makes a sweep around the wide valley end between Parachin and the Sherpa village of Gangyul.  From Gangyul, we arrive at Sermathang. Discover the village. There is also a Buddhist monastery at the highest point of the village.
