The Swayambhunath Temple is located at the hilltop & is a sacred monument from where you get to observe the serenity of entire beautiful Kathmandu valley. The temple consists of various statues of Lord Budhha and very enchanting atmosphere. Nearby, a 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 a sacred pilgrimage site & the dominant temple of Lord Shiva. The temple is built in pagoda style with a golden crown and four silver doors.

Surrounded by the mandala (encircled 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, 35 km from Kathmandu, is very popular 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).

The home to the vibrant Newari culture, this is also the city of festivals. The 55 windows palace, the tallest pagoda in Nepal, the Pottery square and the museums in Bhaktapur has made it the best palace area in Nepal and also a must-visit place in Nepal when you are here. The entrance fee 15 USD is a bit on the higher side but once you go to the Bhaktapur Durbar Square you will be happy with the price you have paid.
