We begin today’s sightseeing tour with a visit to Swoyambhunath also called as Monkey Temple; a 2500 year old site, it is said to be the Radiant Lotus of the valley-mythology settled when the water was drained by Manjushri, the god wisdom. The Five dhyani Buddha attended by their consorts are enshrined at the base of the stupa, then continues tour into Boudhanath.

The Boudhanath Stupa is the world’s largest Stupa and of Tibetan Buddhist Culture in Nepal. Antique shops where you can buy things of you preference relating to Buddhists religion such as Thankas and etc.

After the Boudhanath, you will proceed to Pashupatinath Temple stands along the side of Bagmati River. It is the sacred temple for Hindus. Thousands of people including foreigners visit this temple everyday; this temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, is also a site for Hindu Cremation. During the festival of Shiva Ratri, the temple is crowed by hundreds of thousands of devotees.

Our 13-day tour around Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan would not be so fulfilling without the organization to the very small detail by Himalayan Windows Tours. The proceedings with the visas to Tibet and Bhutan, the daily sightseeings and moving around the places were all well planned
