Background

The famous Khotang Halesi Pilgrimage Tour takes you to the eastern hilly region in Nepal, Khotang district. Halesi lies at a hilltop between two holy rivers of Dudh Koshi and Sun Koshi and is a popular destination for pilgrims. According to mythology, Halesi is a place where Lord Shiva resided to hide from the demon Bhasmasur. Similarly, Buddhists people believe that their great Guru Rinpoche attained salvation while meditating here. As such, Halesi Mahadev and its vicinity hold special regards in the culture and beliefs of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. This historic, religious and spiritual journey is a worthy short trip in Nepal. 

 

The 6-day Khotang Halesi Tour starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. You will be escorted to your hotel and head for the tour the next day. On the second day, our well-experienced tour guide will accompany you for a sightseeing tour to Boudhanath, Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Stupa, and Kathmandu Durbar Square. These sites have great historical, cultural and religious significance to the people of Nepal. You could experience the local Nepali cuisine and enjoy shopping in the vibrant market of Kathmandu. On the next day, we take a ride from Kathmandu to Halesi, explore Halesi for a day and get back the next day. Halesi Mahadev is one of the prominent Hindu pilgrimage sites and the temple is also equally revered by Buddhist adherents. Halesi offers a spiritual gift to its visitors but is not limited to just that. Distant snowcapped mountains are visible from here as well and the rhododendron forests and wildlife make this place a perfect short tour.  The ride is easy and passes through beautiful hills and forests following some rivers alongside.
