KATHMANDU DURBAR SQUARE:
It is one of the major attractions in the valley. The word Durbar Square translates in English as palace complex and this durbar square is listed as a World Heritage Site. Clustered around Durbar Square is the old palace, which has been converted into a well-equipped museum. Numerous other beautiful temples, shrines, Kumari Bahal or the House of the living Goddess, Kastamandap (a house build from the wood of a single tree) and other small temples are scattered everywhere in the square. The main palace building is 9 stories high and anyone can climb up to the top and experience panoramic views of the city.

SWYAMBHUNATH:
It is one of the oldest Stupas in the Kathmandu valley. Sitting on top of the hill to the west of the valley, its unique architecture is one of the most easily recognizable symbols of Nepal. From here one enjoys sweeping and expansive views of Kathmandu City. Legend has it that once upon a time the valley was a lake known as the serpent’s lake. Saint Manjushree cut the southern part of the valley and drained the water out, making Swayambhunath the first exit and an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists

PATAN DURBAR SQUARE:
It is a concentrated mass of temples, the most stunning display of Newari architecture to be seen in Nepal. Listed in World Heritage Site, the former Royal Palace complex is the center of Patan’s religious and social life and houses a museum containing an array of bronze statues and religious objects. One remarkable monument here is a 17th century temple dedicated to the Hindu God Lord Krishna and built entirely of stone.

POKHARA:
The rare combination of snow-clad peaks and snow fed lakes and rivers has helped to make the valley of Pokhara (210kms/131 miles from Kathmandu) one of the most picturesque natural attractions in the country lying virtually in the geographical center of Nepal. Located on the main road between Kathmandu and Bhairawa, perhaps there is no other place in the world from where Great Himalayan peaks can be admired from such  close quarters. The Bindhyavasani Temple on its well-kept platform overlooks a modest amusement park. Phewa lake, skirted by large numbers of unpretentious lodges and simple restaurants, is a great beauty spot for visitors to relax in nature’s rich ambiance.

OPTIONAL PROGRAM: One-hour daily Mountain flight is operated by Airlines to view the mighty Himalayan peaks including Mt.Everest. This is the closest one can go to the peaks without having to trek. Please note that the flights do not land anywhere and all you will be offered is an aerial view. Duration of the flight will be of around 45 minutes to an hour. The aircraft will be BEECH (USA) – 18 seater and SAAB – 32 seater, but out of 32 seats, they sell only 16 seats so that everyone can get a window. The operation of the flight is strictly subject to weather conditions. The operation of the flight is between 07 am to 10 am only.
