Student vacation tour – itinerary

Day 1: Arrive at Kathmandu airport, transfer to hotel. Our tour guide will give you pre-tour information. Overnight at selected hotel.

Day 2: Morning breakfast,
get ready for full day sightseeing starting from Pashupatinath, is one of the four most important religious sites in Asia for Shiva devotees. Pashupatinath, dedicated to Shiva the Destroyer, is the holiest Hindu pilgrimage destination in Nepal. Although the Pashupatinath Temple was only built in the fifth century. A gold-plated roof, four silver doors, and woodcarvings of the finest quality decorate the pagoda temple of Pashupatinath. Then visit Bouddhanath- this is among the largest stupas in Asia, and it has the focal point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. Many people believed that this stupa was built in 5th. Century. Visit Swoyambhunath, Swoyambhu literally means 'Self-Existent One.' Swoyambhunath is believed to have been established more than 2,500 years ago. An inscription dated 460 A.D. states that the construction was carried out by King Manadeva. By the thirteenth century Swoyambhunath had developed into an important Buddhist learning site. The history of Kathmandu Valley is said to have started with the beginning of Swoyambhu and also visit Patan Durbar Square-houses the residence of the former family of Patan. The Square and its surroundings provide very good example of ancient Newari architecture. The palace has three main courtyards the central and the oldest is Mul Chowk. To the west of the complex are a dozen free standing temples of various sizes and styles. Krishna Temple, Bhimsen Temple, the Golden Temple of Hiranya Varna Mahavira and Sundari Chowk mark the architectural excellence of its era. The Sundari Chowk with the sunken bath of Tusha Hiti, contains exquisite woodcarvings, stone, and metal sculpture. Patan Durbar Square also houses a temple of Taleju Bhawani. Back to hotel.

Day 3: Morning breakfast,
tourist bus drives to Pokhara. The serenity of Phewa Lake and the magnificence of the fishtailed summit of Mt.Machhapuchhre (6,977 m) rising behind it create an ambience of peace and magic. Evening free to relax at Pokhara. Leisure walk along Fewa Lake and boating on your own or onward activity. Overnight at selected hotel.  

Day 4: Start your Pokhara guided sightseeing tour,
 Start with Sheti gorge, Davi's fall locally known as the Patale Chhango (Hell's Fall). Devi's Fall (also known as Devin's and David's) is a lovely waterfall, Vindyavashini Temple, and Mahendra cave-another of nature's wonders in Pokhara is the Mahendra Gupha. This large limestone cave is locally known as the House of Bats, an apt name for it.

Testimonials

Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek

My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Mission Eco-Trek provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional -even beyond what we had expected from the contract....

Namaste!
