Durtation: 7 Days

Price: US 549 All Inclusive

Spiritual Tour in Nepal is specially designed for devotees to visit the most popular temples in Nepal. On this 7 days trip, you make it to quite a few of them.

Starting from Pashupatinath temple - one of the most renowned Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, - located on the bank of Bagmati river in the capital city of Kathmandu.

Thousands of devotees come to worship this temple which is built in pagoda style and has a golden crown. There is a belief that Nepal and Nepalese are blessed and protected by Lord Pashupatinath. This temple occupies 0.64 hectares of land with more than 500 temples and monuments alongside the holy river - Bagmati. 

From Pashupatinath, you are taken to the Boudhanath stupa. Boudhanath is the largest Stupa in South Asia stupa & worshipped especially by Buddhist followers as a symbol of Lord Buddha. The unique thing about the stupa area is that the atmosphere surrounding it is very enchanting and peaceful.

Next, you are then driven to Patan Durbar Square at Lalitpur district. It is a place where many temples are located within a small periphery. All the temples are built on a unique and distinct style and have their own values. You can spend time on the periphery of Patan Durbar Square, take photos, and have lunch in the nearby restaurants.

The next day, you start your trip towards the Manakamana temple - three hours of drive from Kathmandu. The literal meaning of "Mana" means mind and "kamana" is fulfilling. Devotees believe that if prayed wholeheartedly - your wishes come true. 

Manakamana temple has a Magar priest - as opposed to the brahmin priest, which is a unique tradition in itself. In the evening, you can see the devotees praying in the temple and the ringing sound of holy bells is very pleasant to the ears. You can rejuvenate your soul. From Manakamana Mandir (temple), you can further hike to Bakreshwor Temple.

The next day, you visit Budhanilkantha Mandir, the temple with the unique shaped statue of Lord Vishnu in a sleeping position.

From Budhanilkantha, you are taken to Swayambhunath Stupa/Temple situated at the hilltop, from where you can get the amazing views of Kathmandu valley. Swayambhunath is worshipped by both Buddhists and Hindus. Also sometimes called the monkey temple as tons of monkeys to roam around freely in the periphery.

From Swayambhunath temple, you are taken to the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The Durbar square is the most happening heritage site in Kathmandu valley. Darbar means palace in Nepali and this palace was home to king and queens in history, thus, has its own unique value.

Also, you can visit the Kumari Ghar. Kumari (a Living Goddess), is worshipped by the Buddhists and Newar people. There are many temples and architecture to explore around. You can take pictures and learn so much about the history of ancient Nepal.

The next day, after early breakfast, you immediately leave for Chandragiri. Chandragiri has both cultural as well as historical value in Nepal. Culturally - there is a Shiva temple located at the top of the hill and historically, as The Great King Prithvi Narayan Shah (unifier of small kingdoms of Nepal into one), first got attracted to the Kathmandu valley when he saw the view from the top of this hill.

You take the cable car ride to reach the top and enjoy the view as well as be a devotee to the temple. After that, you head towards Kirtipur valley, which has been able to preserve its culture and tradition to date. It is resided mostly by the Newar community thus, you can try varieties of Newari food here in Kirtipur. There are many temples situated, the view is amazing from the valley, nonetheless, you get to see the culture and lifestyle of the people.
