However, 9 Days Nepal Tour will give you some splendid opportunity to witness some of the toppers on your 'Best Scenes List' in just 8 Nights and 9 Days. This impossible feat is possible due to the rich diversity of Nepal in various aspects and of course our well-organized and meticulously designed itinerary. 

At Kathmandu, UNESCO heritage site such as the Durbar Square, Pashupatinath temple, Swayambhunath temple, and the Boudhanath Stupa are our primary places of interest.

Kathmandu Durbar Square was constructed in 12th century AD and is surrounded by small temples and courtyards and was the ruling palace of the Malla dynasty. Now a museum, we can explore various ancient relics and get a chance to explore the history of the Rana regime and the Shah Dynasty.

The Swayambhunath temple is located at the hilltop & is a sacred monument from where you get to observe the entire beautiful Kathmandu valley. The temple consists of various statues of Lord Budhha and the entire atmosphere is very enchanting. Nearby Hindu temple also has been constructed, thus, a pilgrimage site both for Buddhists and Hindus.

Located at the bank of Bagmati River, the Pashupatinath temple is one of the sacred pilgrimage site & is one of the dominant temple of Lord Shiva (among the 12 ). A temple built in pagodas style has a golden crown and four silver doors.

Surrounded by the mandala (encircled by prayer wheels), the Boudhanath Stupa, at the north-east of Kathmandu is the largest Stupa in South Asia. Also a pilgrimage site, the location holds a great significance for Buddhists devotees as well as the entire population. 

Nagarkot - a very popular hill station, 35km from Kathmandu, for throwing some extremely phenomenal & spectacular sunrise and sunset views of the sparkling Himalayas including Mount Everest.

Pokhara – is a very beautiful city yet often descried as a city of lakes. One can witness Mount Fishtail, ranges of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri as soon as one enters the city. Other landmarks of Pokhara are Davis Fall, numerous caves, Phewa lake & boating activity, International Mountain Museum (IMM).

Fantastic experience when traveling with Adventure Mission Nepal

My experience in hiking in Nepal was excellent with Adventure Mission Nepal Tours. The guide was very knowledge on the hiking trails and most attentive to all of my needs. The tour package also represented excellent value for money and was cheaper than most other tours of a similar itinerary and duration. Also I was most impressed that the tour company gave a portion of its proceeds to charity. Finally, the owner of the tour company treated the entire tour group to a wonderful dinned and entertainment on the last day of the tour. All in all you cannot go wrong in selecting Adventure Mission Nepal Tours.
