Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pharping, Trishakti Marg, Kathmandu 44600, Nepal

At 10:00 am, your expert Guide for this tour will pick you up from your Hotel’s Lobby and drive for Pharping. By 11:00 am, you will reach Pharping and start sightseeing of Asura Cave, self-arising Ganesh, Vajrayogini temple, Shesnarayan temple, Gorakhnath temple.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Dakshinkali Temple, 20km (12mi) From Kathmandu, Kathmandu 44600 Nepal

Continue sightseeing of Dakshinkali Temple.

The blood-soaked temple of Dakshinkali, a favourite Hindu pilgrimage destination, is set at the confluence of two sacred streams in a rocky cleft in the forest. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Kali, the most bloodthirsty incarnation of Parvati. To satisfy the blood-lust of the goddess, pilgrims drag a menagerie of animals down the path to the temple to be beheaded and transformed into cuts of meat by the temple priests, who are also skilled butchers.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Chilancho Bahal, Kiritipur Ring Road, Kirtipur 44618 Nepal

At 3:00 pm, drive back to Kirtipur.

Kirtipur, located on a hill to the southwest of central Kathmandu is one of several ancient kingdoms in the Kathmandu Valley that were once independent, but now make up part of greater Kathmandu. Kirtipur is thought to be one of the oldest settlements in the valley. It’s a prime destination to learn about the Newar people, who are one of Nepal’s many distinct ethnic groups and the original inhabitants of the Kathmandu Valley. Come to Kirtipur for exquisite architecture, hilltop temples, and sweeping city views.

Wandering around its winding streets feels like walking through a traditional Nepali village, yet Kirtipur also offers some of the finest views of sprawling Kathmandu and the hills and mountains beyond. It’s full of cobblestone streets, old brick houses with elaborately carved door and window frames, and multitiered pagodas.

During this tour, you will visit Bagh Bhairab temple, Chilancho Stupa shrine, Uma Maheshwar temple, and a Theravada Buddhist monastery. Enjoy a Newari lunch, before you return to your hotel.

Day tour ends as your guide drops you off at your hotel.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
