Buckle up for a day filled with architectural marvels, vibrant spiritual energy, and a glimpse into the rich tapestry of Nepali history and tradition.

    Morning:

    Swayambhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple): Begin your day at the iconic Swayambhunath Stupa, perched atop a hill overlooking Kathmandu. This ancient Buddhist monument, also known as the Monkey Temple, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a sacred pilgrimage site for both Buddhists and Hindus. Witness the sunrise, paint the stupa in golden hues, spin the prayer wheels, and observe playful monkeys frolicking around the complex.

    Swyambhunath 

    Kathmandu Durbar Square: Explore your surroundings in the heart of Kathmandu's ancient kingdom at Kathmandu Durbar Square. This vibrant plaza, once the royal palace grounds, is a treasure trove of intricate temples, ornate courtyards, and fascinating museums. Marvel at the Kasthamandapa, a three-story wooden temple believed to be built from a single tree, and discover the Hanuman Dhoka, the former royal palace.

    Kathmandu Durbar Square

    Patan Durbar Square: Next, hop over to the equally captivating Patan Durbar Square, a fine example of Newar architecture. Explore the intricate carvings and colourful facades of the Krishna Mandir, the Mahabuddha Temple, and the Golden Gate, a masterpiece of gilded metalwork. Don't miss the Patan Museum, which houses a rich collection of Nepali art and artefacts.

    Afternoon:

    Bhaktapur Durbar Square: Time for a trip back in time at Bhaktapur Durbar Square, a mediaeval town frozen in time. Stroll through the narrow alleys, admire the terracotta-tiled roofs and wooden balconies, and marvel at the Nyatapola Temple, the tallest pagoda in Nepal. Savour a local delicacy at a traditional restaurant and soak up the charming atmosphere. 

    Changunarayan

    Escape the city bustle and head to Changunarayan Temple, a 2nd-century Hindu temple nestled amidst lush greenery. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is believed to be the oldest temple in the Kathmandu Valley, boasting unique pagoda architecture and a serene atmosphere. Witness the panoramic views of the valley and let the tranquilly wash over you. 

    Evening:

    Pashupatinath Temple: As dusk descends, head to the sacred Pashupatinath Temple, a major Hindu pilgrimage site on the banks of the Bagmati River. Observe the cremation rituals along the ghats, a poignant reminder of the circle of life, and witness the evening puja ceremonies within the temple complex. Immerse yourself in the spiritual energy and witness a glimpse into Hindu beliefs. 

    Pashupatinath Temple

    Boudhanath Stupa: Conclude your whirlwind tour at the majestic Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the world. Walk around the stupa with prayer flags fluttering in the breeze, spin the prayer wheels, and soak up the vibrant atmosphere.

    Tourist Visa for Nepal

    Getting a tourist visa for Nepal is straightforward. Upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, you can quickly obtain your visa by presenting the required documents. The process typically takes 5-10 minutes, though there might be queues during peak tourist seasons. To avoid waiting, consider obtaining a visa from a Nepalese embassy or consulate before your trip.

    Transfer to Hotel

    Most travelers arrive by air. Our team at Nepal Trek Adventure will greet you at your entry point, usually at Tribhuvan International Airport. After collecting your luggage and completing security checks, look for our representative holding a sign that reads "Nepal Trek Adventure." They will escort you to your hotel in Thamel, a 30-minute drive from the airport.

    Orientation

    Once you're checked into your hotel and have had time to rest and refresh, we'll arrange an orientation session. This could be later the same day or the next morning during breakfast. We'll brief you on your upcoming trip, covering highlights, preparations, equipment, food, accommodation, and introduce you to your guide and porter. Feel free to ask any questions during this meeting.

    Last-Minute Booking

    We accommodate last-minute bookings, though they may be slightly more expensive than regular departures. Occasionally, you might find a last-minute deal if another traveler cancels their trip. We're always ready to help organize your trekking adventure, even at the last minute.

    Trip Extension

    If you wish to extend your trip, please let us know at least one day in advance. We'll arrange the necessary accommodations, transportation, and additional crew. Some additional costs will apply, which we'll discuss and agree upon.

    Currency Exchange

    You can exchange currency at Tribhuvan International Airport, your hotel, or various locations in Kathmandu. If you're in a hurry, you can also use USD, AUD, or CAD for your expenses, including accommodation, food, and tipping.

    Our Team

    The Nepal Trek Adventure team is professional, reliable, and experienced. Our staff are friendly, knowledgeable about local culture, history, food, and weather conditions, and trained in first aid. They are committed to making your trip memorable and enjoyable.

    Luggage and Storage

    You can store unnecessary items safely at your Kathmandu hotel while you trek. Your trip leader or hotel receptionist can help you with this before you depart.

    Meals

    Meals are provided according to your itinerary. If your package includes only breakfast (BB), you'll receive breakfast only. Full-board packages include all meals—breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Vegetarian options are available, and our guides will ensure your dietary needs are met.

    Electricity

    Electricity is generally available throughout Nepal, allowing you to charge your devices. However, occasional load-shedding and technical issues may occur, especially in remote areas.

    Drinking Water

    Ensure you drink only safe, bottled, or purified water during your trip. Avoid drinking from local rivers, streams, and taps.

    Communication

    Kathmandu offers excellent communication facilities. In remote areas, Wi-Fi may be available at hotels and restaurants, sometimes for a fee. Consider getting a local SIM card (NT or NCELL) for better connectivity, available at the airport or in Kathmandu. You’ll need a copy of your passport and a passport-sized photo to purchase one.

    Feedback

    We value your feedback, which helps us improve our services. You can provide feedback at our office, during the farewell dinner, or on TripAdvisor.

    Extra Personal Expenses

    Your personal expenses depend on your spending habits. Allocate some extra funds for alcoholic drinks, additional beverages, tipping, donations, and shopping.

    Typical Day

    A typical day starts with breakfast between 7-9 am. You'll then trek for 3-4 hours before stopping for lunch. After an hour-long lunch break, you'll continue tour  until around 4-5 pm. Always follow your guide's instructions for a safe and enjoyable experience.

      UNESCO Sites Day Tour

      A bit rushed for my taste, but definitely a good overview of Kathmandu's UNESCO treasures. It's amazing how much history and culture are packed into this small city! I would have liked more time at each site to explore independently, but I understand the logistics. Still, a great introduction for first-time visitors. Highly recommended UNESCO SItes Day Tour and NTA.
