Day 01 – Arrive in Kathmandu

You will be picked up from the airport and brought to your hotel in Thamel. You can have a rest and wander around the tourist area with many souvenir shops.

Day 02 – Visit Bouddhanath and Pashupatinath

After breakfast you will go to Boudhanath Stupa, an important centre for Tibetan Buddhism. The stupa is one of the largest stupas in the world. It presents Buddha eyes on all four sides. The nose represents the number 1, symbolizing unity and the way to reach enlightenment. Above this is the third eye, symbolizing the wisdom of the Buddha.

Close to Bouddhanath is Pashupatinath, one of the holiest shrines for all Hindus, located on the banks of the Bagmati river. Thousands of followers come to pay homage to Pashupathinath every day. Elderly Hindus come here to find shelter for the last weeks of their lives, to meet death and be cremated on the banks of the river. You will see numerous platforms where cremations take place on a daily basis. Overnight in Thamel.

Day 03 - Kathmandu Durbar Square and Swayambunath

In the morning you will go by walk from Thamel to Kathmandu Durbar Square. On the way there you will see some nice temples, the local market and you can experience the Nepali life style. Durbar Square is very much the sacred heart of the city. Here you can visit the living goddess Kumari, who acknowledges greetings of devotees from the balcony of her temple residence. Durbar Square is filled with ancient temples and a museum showing some history of Nepal. Many of these temples were damaged during the earthquake, but it is still worth seeing.

Next, you will get a transfer to Swayambunath (Monkey temple). This white dome  is the most ancient Buddhist shrine in the valley. The temple is located on a hill, with 365 steps leading you up to the temple. The pilgrimage is covered in colorful prayer flags. From the top of the hill you have a great view over Kathmandu valley.

Day 04 - Kathmandu to Pokhara

After breakfast, you take a short flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. You will reach in about half an hour. You will be transferred to your hotel. Take a dive in the swimming pool or relax by the lake.

Day 05 - Sightseeing in Pokhara

Early in the morning a car will take you up to Sarangkot from where you will have the most beautiful views of the Annapurna range, including Machhapuchhre, at sunrise. After a nice breakfast, the guide will take you around Pokhara. See the closeby waterfalls, walk up to the World Peace Pagoda and take a boat on the lake.

In the afternoon you can sit down by the lake or buy some souvenirs. If you like to be a bit more active, you can rent a cycle. Or go paragliding or bungeejumping!

Day 06 to 09 – Poon Hill trekking

Coming 4 days you will be trekking in the Annapurna region. The trekking trail passes through charming settlements of Gurung and their slate-roofed houses, amazing rhododendron forests, and unparalleled scenic mountains. Poon Hill, the heart of Annapurna, displays beautiful views at sunrise. It is breath taking, as the sun changes its colour from pink to gold to silver – a rewarding experience! On average you walk 6 hours per day. During the trekking you stay in teahouses or lodges. All your meals will be included. At the end of the trek you will come back to Pokhara, where you will be staying in the same hotel as before.
