Welcome at Kathmandu International airport by our representative, Transfer to Hotel –After check in sightseeing of Shyambhunath + Kathmandu Durbar square
Kathmandu Valley - The Heart of Nepal
Kathmandu Valley, the capital and heart of the country essentially symbolizes all that is Nepal. Having seen the rule of various dynasties, the culture and society of Kathmandu has evolved through time to give it a most unique characteristic.
Swayambhunath - The Self Born
Perched on a hilltop on the south western part of Kathmandu, Swayambhunath, is one of the most important religious and cultural sites in Nepal and is associated with the birth of the Kathmandu Valley civilisation. When the Valley was still an ancient lake, a predecessor of the historic Siddartha Gautama Buddha planted the lotus seed here from which came the light of Swayambhu, the “Self Born”. The Boddisattva Manjushree drained the lake by cutting a gorge in the southern edge of the valley in a place called Chobahar from which the Bagmati River flows out, south bound, and established the Kathmandu Valley civilisation.
Kathmandu Durbar square
It is easy to be overwhelmed by the seemingly uncountable monuments in the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The house of the Living Goddess, the ferocious KalBhairab, the red monkey god, and hundreds of erotic carvings are a few examples of the sights at the Square! The buildings here are the greatest achievements of the Malla dynasty, and they resulted from the great rivalry between the three palaces of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. The Valley was divided among the children of YaksyaMalla. For visitors today, and for the Nepalese, it was serendipitous that they, and later their offsprings, began an artistic warfare trying to outdo each other in splendid constructions. Kings copied everything their neighbours built in an even grander style. A visitor who wanders around the Square will see a round temple in the pagoda architectural style, the temple of Goddess Taleju (who played dice with King Jaya Prakash Malla), and an image of Shiva and Parbati sitting together among the many monuments.

Davis fall & Guptshwor Cave:
Devi’s or David’s fall (PataléChango in Nepali) is a lovely waterfall in the city’s southern edge. Legends have it that a lady by the name was swept into the waterfall never to be discovered again. In early years since the waterfall began to attract visitors, the nearby area was sparsely populated and much of the waterfall site was unattended. In the recent years, the conservation efforts to protect the waterfall and its premises are underway. The latest facelift around the waterfall is a testimony of ongoing conservation initiative.
Although the waterfall is open to visitors throughout the year, the best time to visit is during the monsoon season when the floodgate of the Fewa lake barrage is opened to ease the water level. The rushing flow of water through the narrow moraine canyon into the deep ground hole forms a spectacular site.
The all new look of the waterfall comes with a landscaped garden, a wishing well, and a model Nepali countryside home perched on top of the waterfall for visitors to sit and relax.
Just across the highway from the Devi’s fall is the famous Gupteshwor cave. This underground cavity is quite a fascinating occurrence for its close proximity to the waterfall. What appears to be a narrow entrance to the cave balloons up inside to form a first wide platform housing a temple of lord Shiva. A further down the stairs and through a narrow passage leads to the main cavity with high walls aligned closed to wet stalagmites and stalactites. About 25 meters beyond this point is the main drop zone of the Devi’s waterfall after sinking in the ground.
International Mountaineering Museum:
Sprawling over 13 acres of idyllic lush green landscape the International Mountain Museum is one of the must see while in Nepal. Established by Nepal Mountaineering Association in early 2004 the museum was conceived with an idea to work towards promoting the understanding of the mountains, its people and culture, flora and fauna, and the proud mountaineering history.
The first section of the museum features the mountain peoples from Nepal and other countries and their lifestyle portrayed through the clothes, crafts, utensils and models. The second section has mountain rocks, geological specimens and old and new posters on display. The last section consists of the display of tools and equipment’s used by famous mountaineers including Junko Tabei, the first woman to summit Everest.
The museum provides free tour guides and documentary shows throughout the day. The Buddhist prayer room inside the main building also features periodic worships by monks, an age old tradition of many ethnic groups of Nepal’s Himalayas.
There is a 31 feet model of Mt. Manaslu and a quad faced climbing wall for outdoor indulgence. The cafe, souvenir shop, and resting sheds overlooking the Annapurna range make IMM one of the most peaceful places in Pokhara. IMM opens daily and occasionally hosts special events.
