Kathmandu and Pokhara Tour is a tour package itinerary made especially to visit two places in Nepal, the capital city Kathmandu and the lakeside city of Pokhara. This tour is for six days in which you get to visit places of interest in both of them and do some activities accordingly.
In Kathmandu, the Kathmandu and Pokhara tour takes on a tour of four places that have a historical, traditional, cultural and religious value to not only the people of Nepal but as well to the world over. These places are Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Temple and finally Boudhanath Stupa. After a bus or a flight journey, whichever one is of your choosing, you head for Pokhara, in what is termed as a memorable journey, for it gives you the pleasure of either viewing rural Nepal form the top or on the road, with its lush verdure hills, villages and rivers while on the way. Then in Pokhara, you get to do another set of activities, like seeing the sunrise over the Mountain Peaks of Annapuran, Machhapuchhare and others. Down then for a city tour of places special for tourists. You go to visit temple caves, waterfalls and other temples, plus take a ride a boat on the Fewa Tal/Lake.
Though this is just a six day trip to Kathmandu and Pokhara, there is much, which can be had from such a trip. The first is in Kathmandu. Here on the first day, you visit Kathmandu Durbar Square. This place is the old historical township of the past kings with the palace, squares and the various temples to the deities. Next, it is onto Pashupatinath Temple which was built in the fifth century to honour Lord Shiva. It has a special place in the heart of the locals as well as internationally. From here it is onto Swayambhunath that has the story of Kathmandu Valley’s formation and Boudhanath Stupa. In Pokhara, it is the sunrise in Sarangkot, the city tour and boat ride which takes the time galore. Finally, when it all said and done, you head back home.
How are the tours conducted from Place to Place?
Well, all the tours in the city are in a private vehicle and when your move from one town to the other, it is either by tourist bus or if you wish by plane with an extra charge for it. You stay at three-star accommodation throughout the trip.
