The Kumari Goddess:  Chosen at the age of four or five, the Kumari Devi is the most important of the several living goddesses in Nepal. She is selected using a very strict criteria and she moves into the temple with her family, leaving only to attend a few festivals each year. She sits on the balcony regularly, acknowledging the greetings of devotees. Her reign however lasts only until puberty, when she becomes a normal mortal again.

Swayambhunath:  Perched on a hilltop on the southwestern part of Kathmandu, Swayambhunath is one of the most important religious and cultural sites in Nepal and is associated with the birth of the Kathmandu Valley civilization. Approximately 2000 years old, Swayambhunath stupa is a dome 20 meters in diameter and 32 meters high and is made of brick and earth mounted by a conical spire capped by a pinnacle of copper gilt. Many other smaller temples and places of religious importance for both Hindus and Buddhists, a perfect example of the symbiotic co-existence of different religious beliefs only found in Nepal, surround it. The hill is heavily wooded on all sides with indigenous plant species, and troops of monkeys, giving it the nickname of “Monkey Temple”. The height of Swayambhunath also makes it a good vantage point and on clear sunny days one can see the Himalayas all the way to the east.

Patan or Yala:  Patan, as it is known today is located on the southern banks of the Bagmati River and is one of the three main cities in Kathmandu Valley. The city is believed to be the first settlement in the Valley and was established by the Kirat dynasty who ruled for more than 1200 years from the 3rd century BC. Patan is famous for its amazing collection of fantastically carved temples, palace courtyards, water spouts, public baths and houses with their equally elaborate wood, stone and metal carvings under the patronages of the Kirat, Lichivi and Malla kings. Patan has more than a 1000 temples and monuments dedicated to the uniquely Nepali mix of Buddhist and Hindu gods, chief among which are the mounds erected by the great Indian Emperor Asoka in the four corners of the city when he visited Nepal in 250 BC. Patan Durbar square is one of the seven Monument Zones that make up the Kathmandu Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Early morning drive to Sarangkot to view the sunrise or take a mountain flight for aerial view of the mountain range. Visit Bindebasini temple en-route. Come back to hotel for breakfast. Later visit Devis Fall, Gupteshwor Mahadev, Tibetan Refugee Camp and Lake Phewa.

Sarangkot:  Start off your day with a bang and grab an incredible view of the beautiful Nepal sunrise on this 2.5-hour tour. A professional guide will bring you from your hotel to the small hilltop of Sarangkot that offers a breathtaking view of the sunrise, the Annapurna range and Pokhara. Peek over the valleys and grab your camera for this true introduction to Nepal. Sarangkot is one of the most popular destinations, visited by tourists year after year. Here, you will see the magnificent sunrise and view of the Annapurna range. Watch in wonder as the colours dance over the top of the mountains, displaying nature in its truest form. As the first rays of the sun gradually dissipate the darkness in the lower plains of Pokhara valley, the scenery will simply astound you. While you take in the sunset, you may also do some sightseeing on the hill. If you look south, you will be able to see an amazing view of Pokhara and its lake on the north-western outskirts of the city.

Bindhyabaseni Temple:  Pokhara is a popular destination in Nepal, filled with many fascinating spots for tourists to investigate. One of the most popular and most visited of these is the intriguing Bindabasini Temple, known locally as Bindhyabasini Mandir. Standing proudly atop a hill, this striking temple looks calmly over the bustling city of Pokhara. The white pagoda-styled building of the Hindu Bindabasini Temple quietly sits at about 3000 feet above sea level along the renowned Annapurna and Machhpuchhare mountain ranges. It is located near the busy Old Bazaar of Pokhara, a centre of commerce in the Himalayas.

After breakfast, proceed for sightseeing tour covering Devis Fall, Gupteshwor Mahadev, Lake Phewa, Tibetan Refugee Camp.

Devi's Falls:  It is a waterfall located at Pokhara. The water forms an underground tunnel after reaching the bottom. This tunnel is approximately 500 feet long and runs 100 feet below ground level. On 31 July 1961, a Swiss couple named Davi went swimming but the woman drowned in a pit because of the overflow. Her body was recovered with great effort three days later in river Phusre. Her father wished to name it "Davi's falls" after her. Its Nepali name is PataleChango, which means "underworld waterfall". This is one of the most visited places in Nepal. After exiting the tunnel, the water passes through a cave called Gupteshwor Mahadev or "cave beneath the ground". The Phewa Lake dam is the water source. The cave also acts as a tourism site because it has a complex layout and people even forget the way inside the cave.

Gupteshwor Mahadev:  Across the road from Devi’s Falls, this venerated cave contains a huge stalagmite worshipped as a Shiva lingam. The ticket allows you to clamber through a tunnel behind the shrine, emerging in a damp cavern adjacent to the thundering waters of Devi’s Falls.

Phewa Lake:  Phewa Tal is the travellers' focal point in Pokhara, and is the second largest lake in Nepal. In contrast to the gaudy tourist development of Lakeside, the steep southwestern shore is densely forested and alive with birdlife. The lush Rani Ban, or Queen’s Forest, bestows an emerald hue to the lake, and on a clear day the Annapurna Mountains are perfectly reflected on its mirror surface.

Tibetan Refugee Camp:  Many of the Tibetan refugees who hawk souvenirs in Lakeside live in the Tibetan refugee settlements within and around Pokhara. The largest settlement close to Pokhara is TashiPalkhel, about 5km northwest of town at Hyangja, on the road to Baglung. With prayer flags flapping in the breeze in the rocky valley, it genuinely feels like you’re in Tibet. The colourfulJangchubChoeling Gompa in the middle of the village is home to around 200 monks.
