    As per our schedule, the fun begins from today. You will tour Kathmandu—City of Temples. Our tour guide will show you four UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites located in the capital city. The tour begins from Kathmandu Durbar Square. It is a historical place that covers five acres land in the heart of Kathmandu. There is Hanuman Dhoka Palace, Kumari Ghar, Kasthamandap and many more things to observe.

    The earthquake of 25th April 2015 destroyed many temples and historic building but despite the fact, the charm of the site is still there and things are in the reconstruction phase.

    After roaming Durbar Square we drive to Pashupatinath Temple. The temple is regarded as greatest Hindu shrine where Lord Shiva is worshipped in the form of Linga.

    Bouddhanath Stupa is located in close distance from Pashupatinath. It is an octagonal mandala structure stupa and Lord Buddha is worshipped here. In the vicinity of Bouddhanath, there are more than 50 monasteries where you can visit and see the metal structure of Lord Buddha and many other Buddhas.

    Swoyambhunath is the last destination of our visit today. It is located in a cliff and the view of Kathmandu valley is really nice from here. Swoyambhunath is also known as Monkey Temple as many monkey of Reus species are found here.

    It is a dome-shaped structure above which pyramid-shaped metal structure is placed. At the bottom of that metal structure, you can see eyes of Buddha in all four directions.

    ‘Self-Existing’ is the meaning of Swoyambhunath. It means that when there was nothing in the valley the Swoyambhu used to exist. Legends say that the civilization of Kathmandu Valley began with Swoyambhunath.

It is a drive of around six hours riding on Prithvi Highway. You will enjoy the countryside Nepal while on the way. The lush green vegetation, hills and Trishuli River will fascinate you. The beautiful view of Fishtail Mountain from the window of your coach is equally appealing.

      In Pokhara, you get some time to roam around. Here you can have an experience of boating in Phewa Lake. Lakeside walk in evening is truly wonderful.

              Overnight in High Camp

                It is a kind of leisure day. While on trekking this type of rest is essential for trekkers as it reduces the chances of being arrested by high altitude sickness. It helps to adjust your body to increasing elevation and this is known as acclimatization.

                Despite rest day, we will be exploring the local area. The scenic beauty of the area will drive you crazy especially, the view of Annapurna and Fishtail Mountain.

                  We will walk on descend course today. Walking amid forests is pleasant. You will see terraced fields on the way before getting at Mardi Khola (River). Trekking along the bank of Mardi we arrive at Siding village.
