Background
Nepal has the perfect harmony of culture and natural beauty. The beautiful old towns preserve age-old traditions and the architecture has stood the test of time, even earning the titles of UNESCO World heritage sites. These sites are spread out in three different cities which go by the name of Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Lumbini. This UNESCO world heritage site tour is designed to provide you the best of these 3 cities. After taking this tour, you’ll be awakened both naturally and culturally.

This trip, in particular, will first take you on a tour of Kathmandu, then take you 300 kilometers southwest towards the spiritual town of Lumbini, then up north to the hills again to the beautiful valley of Pokhara. We will explore the UNESCO sites in Kathmandu that may depend on your preference but will be around the holy sights of Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, and Pashupatinath and also the Durbar square home to both the Malla and Shah dynasties. On the Next day, we will thoroughly explore either Patan or Bhaktapur or a bit of both depending on our schedule. We will explore the primary towns of the Durbar square, and the subsequent towns such as Thimi, Khokana, and Bungmati. From here on, we move to Lumbini where we take a journey exploring the roots of Gautama Buddha and the beautiful monastic zone. Pokhara is a relaxing end to this trip as this beautiful city has a variety of options that can cater to any of your needs. If you wish to relax, then unwind by the lakeside or go boating in the Phewa Lake. You may also take a trip to the nearby locations with caves, waterfalls and other lakes, or hike up to vantage points in the World peace pagoda or Sarangkot for a wondrous view. If you are an adventure seeker then be sure to be open to looking at Sky diving, Ultra-flight, and Zip lining before heading there. There is no real set season to carry out this trip as not much hiking or trekking is required. The tour ends once you drive back to Kathmandu from Pokhara.

Our Tour Guides at Miteri Nepal have immense knowledge and experience to take you through every nook and cranny of the cities and heritage sights in depth. We promise that you’ll have a satisfying and unforgettable experience. Plus, we provide unmatched value for money.

  • Day 02: Kathmandu World Heritage Sites visit

    Kathmandu has been listed as a world heritage site. However, UNESCO divides it into seven more areas as heritage sights that are in Kathmandu. Today, we head to the Kathmandu durbar square which is nearby the Thamel. The Durbar square was home to both the Malla and Shah Kings, thus we see a mixture of architecture. Around the area, we see Pagoda and Shikhara style buildings. From here, we make a trip to the Swayambhunath temple which lies on the outskirts of the main city area. It was once said that this the stupa guards a Lotus that floated above the Lake of serpents of what Kathmandu once was (according to myth). From here on, we head to Boudhanath. The whole area is home to people of Tibetan origin and the town values Buddhism greatly while inside the premises you will see people praying, spinning the prayer wheels or meditating. We head out to the Pashupatinath temple too. The temple complex is large and it houses a host of shrines of great importance in Hindu religion. You are free to explore around the area, however inside the main area is exclusive to Hindus only. Overnight in Kathmandu.

  • Day 03: Bhaktapur/Patan World Heritage Sites visited

    The three old towns of the valley are Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. All three durbar square share similar traits of Shikhara and Pagoda style architecture and painstakingly elaborate wood carvings in support pillars and window. Once you get to Bhaktapur, you will see the Naytapola temple which will remind you of the Taleju temple in Kathmandu. It is widely believed each Malla king wanted their town to outdo their counterparts in the other city thus these ambitious structures were constructed at the time. It is believed that the areas were first under Kirat rule earliest before the Lichhavi came and perfected the old towns while the Malla’s tool the architecture to their apex best. The notable sights to visit in Bhaktapur are the Golden gate, the art gallery and the Museum, Bhupatindra Malla statue, Naytapola temple, 55 window palace, Dattatraya square, and the old market. While in Patan the attractions are the central Durbar square with the Krishna temple, the Patan Museum and Yoga Narendra Malla pillar and others that include Mahabouddha temple, Sundhara, Hiranya Varna Mahavihara, Jagat Narayan and Mul Chowk.

  • Day 04: Drive from Kathmandu to Lumbini

    Today will predominantly be a road trip which will take us down from the winding hills of the valley to the flatlands that Lumbini is in. On your way, you can see endless seas of Rice paddies and Mustard fields along with thatched roof houses. Upon arrival in Lumbini, transfer to your hotel for a much-needed rest. Overnight in Lumbini. 

     

  • Day 05: Lumbini Sightseeing

    Lumbini is widely recognized to be the Birthplace of Lord Buddha as Siddhartha Gautama. When Mayadevi came to Lumbini to take a bath in the pool that is when she gave birth to Lord Buddha. This area is designated as the sacred garden area and houses 3 shrines. The Maya Devi temple is of prime importance as it has some intact ancient ruins of the Kingdom and also supposedly marks the first seven steps of Lord Buddha as an infant. The Asoka pillar inscribed outside the premises is said to mark this area as the exact location of his birth, while on the same premises beside the temple are ancient ruins and a very old Bodh tree laden with prayer flags. The monastic zone houses 29 Monasteries from countries all over the world, while the Japanese made World peace pagoda is situated at the New Lumbini Village area. The monasteries in the Monastic zone include of both Mahayana and Theravada inspirations, with countries such as China and Thailand even putting their traditional architecture in the mix. Lumbini is said to be the birthplace of Buddha but the ancient Kingdom’s capital was said to be 27 km west in Tilaurakot before it was destroyed by a North Indian conqueror King. If you wish to explore this area you will need to head 27 Km west. Overnight in Lumbini.

  • Day 06: Drive from Lumbini to Pokhara

    The drive from Lumbini to Pokhara sees an increase in altitude and climbs the hills from flat plains. The drive is scenic and amazing pictures of the nearby surroundings. The road has many steep turns and setbacks so be careful. Once you arrive in Pokhara, you can head to your hotel and take a much-deserved rest. Overnight in Pokhara.

     

  • Day 07: Pokhara Sightseeing

    Pokhara in many ways could be the flagship city of tourism in Nepal. The famed lakeside is home to many wonderful eateries and shops and once in Pokhara, you can explore the lake through boating. The hills of Sarangkot and the World Peace Pagoda are wonderful short hiking destinations, but can also be reached by car. From the top of them, you can catch wonderful views of the Annapurna Mountain ranges and more, and the sight is even more perfect during the sunrise or sunset thus this can be done at either the beginning or end of your trip in Pokhara. Just like Phewa Lake, there are other two beautiful lakes called Rupa and Begnas Tal, which are a short drive away and can provide an even more serene experience. Do visit sites like the Mahendra cave, Gupteshwor Cave and Davis falls. We can prepare a permit and ticket beforehand and then you can go for activities such as paragliding, Ultra flights (weather permitting) and Zip lining for a truly thrilling day.

    This is the last road trip of our itinerary as we travel through the fairly well populated hilly countryside of central/western Nepal.
