Trekking and spirituality

This itinerary develops after the arrival in Kathmandu and its discovery, with an exciting trekking in Tibet that crosses lakes, wonderful meadows, mountain forests, and nomadic fields, as well as two key points of Tibetan religious culture.

Minimum departure 4 participants

Best period: mid-May – mid-October

1° day

KATHAMNDU (- / - / -)

Arrival in Kathamndu, transfer to your hotel.

2° day

KATHAMNDU (B / - / -)

Day dedicated to the visits of Kathmandu. Visit Kathmandu, the capital and only metropolitan center of the country. Located at 1337 m above sea level, it is a city full of contrasts with its urban agglomerations that contain an extraordinary cultural and artistic heritage. In the center of the old city, founded in the 12th century by the Malla dynasty, the historic Durbar Square is located, and the Palace Square, where the kings of the city were crowned; it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979. On the Durbar Square and the two neighboring squares overlook the ancient royal palace with balconies and wooden windows decorated with fine carvings; Hindu temples and monasteries consecrated to Brahma the creator, Vishnu the conservative, Shiva the destroyer and the regenerator, and splendid buildings with courtyards, such as the Dimora Della Kumari, a maiden chosen as the living goddess of the city. The maze of streets in the old city branches off all around. Continue to Swayambhunath, also called "monkey temple" for the large colony of monkeys that lives there; the large Buddhist complex dominates the city with the watchful eyes of the Buddha that scrutinize the valley in every direction. The hill on which the temple stands was, according to legend, an island that emerged over a large lake that submerged the entire Kathmandu valley, its historical origins date back to 460 AD. You're going back to the hotel.

3° day

KATHAMNDU (B / - / -)

In the morning visit of Patan, it is the second-largest city in the valley and is located south of Kathmandu, but has been partially incorporated by the capital. Historically it is known by the Sanskrit name of Laliput, "city of beauty", founded in 250 BC., and ruled by local aristocrats and finally conquered by Malla rulers. Patan's Durbar Square is dotted with temples, palaces, and buildings, which form an extraordinary collection of Newari architecture.

4° day

KATHAMNDU (B / - / -)

Withdrawal of visas, in the morning visit of the Changu Narayan temple located in the district of Bhaktapur, at about 45 minutes from Kathmandu. The current temple, located on top of a hill, was rebuilt in 1702 following a fire, but its origins date back to the 4th century and have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The suggestive temple, consecrated to Vishnu in its incarnation of Narayan, is reserved for Hindus, but the real jewels are represented by the ancient sculptures that dot the courtyard. Continue to Bhaktapur (5 km, about 30 minutes), the third-largest urban center in the valley, on the ancient commercial route to Tibet. The city is splendid and has kept intact the traditional character of the Malla era, in its Durbar Square, in the temples, shrines, buildings, fountains, and the streets animated by potters, woodcarvers, weavers, and numerous artisans of centuries-old traditions. In the afternoon transfer to Nagarkot. Location located on the edge of the Kathmandu Valley at 2175 m above sea level, it offers spectacular views of the Himalayan mountains with Dhaulagiri to the west and Kanchenjunga to the east. Between October and March, the view is particularly clear. Weather permitting, stroll through the hills dotted with villages that have preserved the customs and traditions of the past.
