Brief information about the places we will visit during this tour:
Boudhanath Stupa is one of the largest stupas in the world and is the religious and cultural center of the broad community of Tibetan Refugees in Nepal. It is a holy place rich in Buddhist symbolism.
Pashupatinath is the most important Hindu Temple in Nepal and is set on the banks of the sacred river Bagmati. It is not only a religious destination, but a mix of art, culture, peace, and devotion. Hundreds of rituals are performed every day on its premises, which are considered an open, living museum. In the age of mythology, Lord Shiva and his consort lived here by this tributary of the holy Ganges.
Patan - Once one of the independent kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, Patan is also the oldest existing Buddhist city in the Valley. Despite its close proximity to the capital Kathmandu, its ‘preserved’ ancestral culture distinguishes Patan as a unique place to experience. Patan is also known as Lalitpur, the “City of Beauty”, and its unique Durbar Square is surrounded on all four sides by awe-inspiring temples and shrines
Pokhara - Nepal’s number 1 adventure and leisure destination. Pokhara is one of the most famous paradises for hikers who love trekking. It rises right at the foot of the mountains and is the second-largest city in Nepal. The town is located in the Gandaki area, which is lush and green, rich in hills, valleys, and lakes (even large ones) that develop along the valley bottom. Precisely these lakes have given Pokhara the friendly name of the City of 7 Lakes, a property thanks to which the area is full of itineraries, hiking trails, and ideas for cultural visits.
Tatopani (1190m) meaning ‘hot water’ in Nepali is a very small village that gets its name from the hot springs that emerge from the rocks beside the Kali Gandaki River.
Tukche is a tranquil humble town of cobbled streets and white houses. It is home to Thakali people, who are reputed to be fine hosts and great cooks.
Kagbeni - At 2,800 meters above sea level, Kagbeni is a village where the influence of Tibetan culture is tangible, with prayer wheels, a stupa, and a five-century-old monastery. The name of the village derives from “kag” (mass of stone) and “goods” (the confluence of the two rivers. In the past, it was an important stop along the Salt Road. The houses have flat roofs on which wood and hay are left to dry in the sun for the winter and are built close to each other along narrow alleys, which give Kagbeni the appearance of a labyrinth. The main attraction of the place is the Thupten Samphel Ling Gompa, which means “Monastery of the place in which to stop and develop concentration on the teachings of the Buddha” and even today it is the heart of spiritual life for the community.
Muktinath is a pilgrimage destination for both Hindus and Buddhists. The village lies at the bottom of a valley, at 3,800 meters high, at the foot of the Thorong La pass. Its Vishnu Temple, considered sacred, is one of the oldest Hindu shrines consecrated to the god; inside it is kept a precious golden image representing the God Vishnu almost as tall as a person. The courtyard is adorned with 108 pipes from which a stream of pour holy water comes out.
Marpha - Unlike other villages, Marpha has preserved its unique heritage and architecture. At 2,680m, wedged between a steep sandstone cliff and cultivated fields that dominate the Kali Gandaki, is an example of the Thakali way of life. The houses have flat roofs built with mud, which is used to dry grains and fruits, and doors and windows outlined by cherry wood panels. Under the narrow cobbled streets runs an extensive drainage system. The area surrounding this stone village is remote.
