The Kathmandu Valley has preserved its centuries-old heritage in its original form. So spend three days in the Valley hopping from one heritage site to another in this vacation which will leave you with enhanced sense of local culture and traditions.
A Mountain Kick representative will receive you as you land into Kathmandu and take you to your hotel. We have a pre-trip meeting scheduled for the day where we run you through the itinerary.
We will begin sightseeing with Kathmandu Durbar Square, a centuries-old royal courtyard where the former palaces and temples still stand in their former glory. You will feel like you have got back in time as the people and neighborhoods here have remained the same for ages.
We then move on to the Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple. This Buddhist monastery that sits on a hilltop has a peaceful atmosphere and provides panoramic views of the Kathmandu Valley.
Another prime attraction in Kathmandu is the Patan Durbar Square in Lalitpur district. Patan Durbar Square is a prime specimen of Newa architecture used as royal palace in the 1600s. Medieval temples, buildings, and statues, although damaged by 2015 earthquake, still decorate the former royal courtyard.
From there, we will head towards the Pashupatinath Temple, one of the biggest and holiest shrines in the world of Hindu god Shiva. And before wrapping up the day, we will visit another heritage site of Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the country. It is believed that the Stupa is a tomb of an incarnation of Lord Buddha.
Mountain Kick will host a farewell dinner in the evening to officially end your vacation.
We will be there at the airport to see you off.

As one of the core guiding principles for Mountain Kick, we always give back to the mountain community in any way we can as a means of gratitude. The people who live in the Himalayas and share their homes with us deserve to have all their little problems fixed which seem very basic for outsiders but are commonplace in rural Nepal. The people lack proper access to healthcare, sanitation and education but a little effort from travellers goes on a long way to solve these issues. Mountain Kick has made it its corporate social responsibility to help improve the living standards of the local community. We make donations to their cause, organize social campaigns and programs and also have a few trips designed to mix a little volunteer work in your holiday.READ MORE ABOUT CSR
