The monuments in the Square were built between the 12th and 18th centuries and this is where most of the state ceremonies are performed up till today. Start with a visit to Kumari Ghar, abode of the Living Goddess. Also visit Kasthamandap, Kathmandu’s most famous pagoda, said to have been built from the wood of a single tree in the early 16th century. The city of Kathmandu derives its name from this monument. You will also visit the Big Bell and Kal Bhairav, an ancient and impressive stone relief of Lord Shiva in one of his fearsome manifestations. 




Day 2: Kathmandu. You have the option of experiencing the Everest flight this morning – your hotel travel desk can arrange this. If you decide to take this flight, Boudhanath Templeon your return you will freshen up and have breakfast.
Experience a tour of `Patan City` one of the three queen cities of the valley. Patan is the city of fine arts, and you will start with an exploration of the Durbar Square here. The museum here houses a collection of ancient bronzes and religious objects. Other noteworthy monuments are the impressive carvings at the 17th century Krishna Mandir and Mahavihar, the 12th century Golden Temple of Lord Buddha. There is a break for lunch.
Late afternoon
– Visit the Swayambhunath temple and stupa, Kathmandu’s oldest and best known religious monuments. With a history that may go back as far as 2500 years, this ancient complex is also a World Heritage Site. The temple and stupa are built on a hilltop and are visible from most of the Kathmandu Valley. The devout walk up the hill from the base (365 steps), most tourists prefer to drive up 85% of the way and then use the steps on the other side of the hill.




Day 3: Kathmandu – Pokhara. You are at leisure in the early morning. In the mid-morning you are assisted with your check-out by an ETI Travel Facilitator and then driven to the airport to board the morning flight to Pokhara. Arrive at Pokhara and you are greeted at the airport by an Easy Tours Facilitator and your chauffeur. You are driven to your hotel and assisted with your check-in.
Pokhara is part of a once vibrant trade route extending between India and Tibet. To this day, mule trains can be seen camped on the outskirts of the town, bringing goods to trade from remote regions of the Himalaya. This is the land of the Magars and Gurungs, hardworking farmers and valorous warriors who have earned worldwide fame as Gurkha soldiers.
The serenity of Phewa Lake and the magnificence of the fish-tailed summit of Machhapuchhre (6,977 m) rising behind it have to be experienced to be understood. At an elevation lower than Kathmandu, it has a much more tropical feel to it, a fact well appreciated by the diversity of beautiful flowers which prosper in the valley. The valley surrounding Pokhara is home to thick forests, gushing rivers, emerald lakes and of course, the world famous views of the Himalaya.
You are at leisure for the balance of the afternoon.




Day 4: Pokhara. You have the option to drive to Sarangkot early this morning to view the spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas. If you do this you will return to your hotel later to freshen up and have breakfast.

Afternoon - Enjoy a boat cruise on Phewa Lake passing the simple three-story villa where the King of Nepal maintains his winter home. Stop at the small golden temple to the Hindu god Varahi which is nestled in foliage on an island in the centre of the lake. You will see many fishermen and other pilgrims take their long canoes (carved from tree trunks) to the island to visit the shrine.
