Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrival: Your Himalayan Adventure begins with your arrival at Tribhuven International Airport. Your representative of Global Axis Travels will greet you and take you to your hotel in the heart of Thamel. Here, you will find people speaking languages from every country of the world. Take the time to relax, or go out and enjoy the nightlife. Thamel is a fun place with plenty of action.

DAY 2 – Kathmandu: Today will be a leisurely day. Tour the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu Durbar Square and Swayambhu. Durbar Square means the kings palace, and you will discover nearly 60 incredible temples. From here, tour the ancient palace and then go up to Swayambhu for an incredible view of the Valley. Swayambhu is a Buddhist heritage site, with a large stupa and many temples. Explore the temples that dot the hillsides as you watch the rhesus monkeys in action. The temple is known as "Monkey Temple" because of all the monkeys who are fun to watch. But be careful, they like to steal your lunch. The monkeys don't always have the best manners. Spend the evening enjoying Thamel. 

DAY 3 – Day Hiking : This morning, plan to get up early as we take in a sunrise over the Himalayas at Nagarkot. This famous location is a highpoint of the Kathmandu Valley overlooking the mighty peaks of the Himalayas. On a clear day, you can even see Mt. Everest in the East. Many of the 8,000+ meter peaks are visible from Nagarkot. Here we will have breakfast and then make a leisurely trek to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Changu Narayan. This is about a 5 hour trek that takes you along the rim of the Valley, past quant villages where you will see people farming and living as they have for thousands of years. Changu Narayan is an ancient village where you will be able to see the Newari people doing woodcarvings as well as a chance to visit the oldest temple in the valley.
