    KIRTIPUR – History says that the ancient city of kirtipur was founded by shiva deva between 1099 ad and 1126 ad and during the reign of the malla kingdom in the 15th century the city was developed for human settlement. Kirtipur’s fortress was considered impregnable. The gurkha king prithvi narayan shah laid siege to it three times before 1768 a.d. finally taking the town and then, it is said, only after it had been betrayed. Even today the weapons from those former battles are mounted at the roof of bagh bhairav temple.he exacted terrible revenge for heavy gurkha losses – his brother was among those killed – by cutting off the nose and lips of every man and boy over the age of 12. Only wind-instrument players were spared – they were required to celebrate his triumph. The line of the old town wall, pierced by 12 gates, is still clearly visible. Most of the townspeople were weavers and farmers, the lower castes living outside the wall.

    Lunch at Patan on your own.


    Patan is situated in the center of Patan city, also known as Lalitpur, houses the residence of the former Patan royal family. Patan Square and its surroundings are good specimen of ancient Newari architecture. The city of Patan is believed to have been built in the third century B.C. by the Kirat dynasty. It was expanded by Lichhavis in the 6th century A.D. and again by the Mallas in medieval period. The Malla kings ruled the Kathmandu Valley until the ascension of the Shah dynasty. In 1768, King Prithvi Narayan Shah began his campaign to unify Nepal and Patan became a city in the kingdom of Nepal. Krishna temple of red stone, dedicated to Hindu Lord Krishna was erected in the 17th century. The temple is considered to be the first one to be constructed in Shikara architecture. Thanks to this attribute, it holds a commanding position in the durbar square.

    PM: Visit Swoyambhunath.


    Swayambhunath or more commonly known as Monkey Temple. The place has a lot of monkeys… This temple complex offers spectacular views of the entire Kathmandu Valley. The temple is up the hill. From the temple, you can have the whole city view from the temple. The Buddhist Stupa at the top is impressive that has eyes painted onto it. The Stupa is a golden spire crowning a conical wooded hill. It is the most ancient and enigmatic of all the holy shrines in Kathmandu Valley. It has a lofty white dome and a glittering golden spire that are visible from all sides of the valley. Historical records found on a stone inscription give evidence that the Stupa was already an important Buddhist pilgrimage destination by the 5th century A.D. i.e. before the coming of Buddhism in the valley.

    Sightseeing to Bhaktapur Durbar Square.


    Founded in the 12th century by King Ananda Malla, Bhaktapur was the capital city of the Greater Malla Kingdom until the 15th century and was an independent kingdom from then until the 18th century. The last three Malla rulers of Bhaktapur were Jitamitra Malla, Bhupatindra Malla, and Ranjit Malla. These rulers played key roles in building the palaces and temples of Durbar Square. In 1744, Prithvi Narayan Shah, descendent of Dravya Shah, who was the founder of the Gorkha dynasty, began a conquest march in the Kathmandu Valley, capturing and unifying Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, and the smaller towns of the Valley under one rule. After a period of instability and a bloody coup in 1846, Jang Bahadur Kunwar Ranaji took control of Nepal.

    Pashupatinath is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. This massive temple complex sits alongside the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Only Hindus are allowed to enter the courtyard of the temple, whereas tourists can see the temple from the eastern side of the Bagmati River. It is a place where century-old Hindu rituals are practiced in their astonishing initial form, giving a chance to the visitors to feel the unique spirit of Hindu traditions of life, death and reincarnation. According to a legend recorded in local texts, especially the Nepalamahatmya and the Himavatkhanda, the Hindu Lord Shiva once fled from the other gods in Varanasi to Mrigasthali, the forest on the opposite bank of the Bagmati River from the temple.

Sarangkot is only 5 km from lake side, Pokhara. Sarangkot is the highest view point for a sunrise and it is just 1592 m high. Sarangkot is 5 degrees cooler than Pokhara. Many tourists come to Sarangkot for sunrise view and go back after few hours. From Sarangkot, on the northern direction we can see Dhaulagiri in the far west. Annapurna range is visible when the weather is clear on the same side. On the southern direction the village overlooks the city of Pokhara and its lake on the north-western outskirts of the city.

    Devi’s fall – this waterfall marks the point where the Pardi Khola stream vanishes underground. When the stream is at full bore after monsoon rains, the sound of the water plunging over the falls is deafening.

    Gupteshwor cave – it is considered 599 years old. While the young local people went deeper, they found out that an idol-like object resembling Lord Shiva had formed naturally on the spot. Later on, it was taken to be Lord Shiva and the local people formally consecrated and installed it at the mouth of the cave in 1992.

    Seti Gorge – It means white water river. It is silently flows in centre part of Pokhara. The silver colour river made the wonderful gorge, which called Seti gorge. Seti gorge is an unique and wonderful looking. It flows through the deep rifts of the conglomerate mountains.

  • Day 07

    After leisure breakfast, visit Bungamati and Khokana village.

    Bungamati, a classic medieval Newari village of 16th century situated in the foothills of the southern side of the valley, inhabited by Newari farmers, whose second occupation is wood carving. An ideal location to see medieval village structure and lifestyle. Moreover, one can enjoy the harvesting of rice and the wood carving, the only station to see live doing carving by local Newars. Karya Vinayak Temple is dedicated to Ganesh. The view is spectacular from the Karya Binayak, surrounding by trees and large bamboos and can look at the Bagmati valley to the foothills. The temple is not particularly interesting and Ganesh is simply represented by a natural stone. Khokana, fifteen minutes walk away, past the important Karya Binayak shrine on a tree-covered hillock, is the village of Khokana. Slightly smaller than Bungamati, with a population of about 3,000 Newari Buddhist. It is famous for its mustard-oil manufacturing. It is worthwhile to seek out one of the village’s oil presses, located in poorly lit factories with medieval atmosphere. Khokana’s streets are brick and stone-paved with central gutters. The village’s main temple is dedicated to the Goddess Rudrayani, one of the valley’s nature goddesses.
