Meals: Not Included

Pashupatinath Temple
After breakfast drive to Pashupatinath Hindu Temple, 28 kilometer North-west from Nagarkot is the holiest of all the Shiva shrines in Nepal and is the abode of Lord Pashupatinath, the guardian spirit of Nepal. The temple of Pashupatinath is a sizeable double-roofed pagoda of brass and gilt; the gateway is plated with silver. It stands on the western bank of the Bagmati about five-kilometer northeast of Kathmandu and contains the sacred Linga of Lord Shiva. Before the temple stands an enormous gift figure of the bull Nandi, the mount of Shiva, flanked by a golden trident. There is a crematorium outside the temple by the side of the vast but narrow river, and the wood environments are dotted with small monuments. On the occurrence of the yearly festival of Maha Shivaratri (February/March), the temple is visited by thousands of believers including a large number of pilgrims from Nepal and India. The temple is also the site of several other festival and ritual taking place throughout the year.

Bouddhanath:
This Colossal Stupa, one of the biggest in the world, is situated 2 kilometers north of Pashupatinath. The splendid some of Bouddhanath Stupa is approximately 120 ft in diameter, 1hec in width and 43m in height. Its straightforwardness of form is its principal feature, unique amongst massive Stupas in the valley in its lack of the attached five shrines of the Buddha. Some believe it characterizes fat Adibuddha (Half Buddha), the first or Primitive Buddha, free of conceptual releases. Only the steps built into it on the north side, seemingly the ladder that Sakyamuni ascended into Tushita heaven, berks its regularity. A thick layer of whitewash coast the dome and the form of a double lotus depicted in saffron water paints it. This can be supported on various promising dates and is also done annually on Dashain Purne (Full Moon at the time of Dashain) occurring on the Full Moon in September by the Bouddhanath Area Development Committee. Bouddhanath, the dome, is an adds terrace with a remarkable 108 niches filed with stone sculptured deities of the Nyingmapa School’s pantheon. They replace the usual five Buddha shrines in defining the content of the Stupa-Mandala, these images were almost certainly commissioned all at once by Sakya Zangpo in the 16th century when the present Stupa was built or after that. On top of the Stupa, there are five symbols of Water, Ether, air, fire, and earth.

Swyambhunath (Monkey Temple)
It lies on 10 KM west from Boudhanath Stupa. It is said to be two thousand years old, making it one of the world’s oldest and well-known Buddhist charities. The Chaitys (Stupa) which forms the main structure is composed of a solid hemisphere of brick and earth supporting a lofty conical spire capped by panicle of gilt copper. Painted on the four-sided base of the spire are the all-seeing eyes of Lord Buddha. It stands a hill as Stupa style.

Road Conditions and Safety:

In most of Nepal’s area, roads are poorly maintained and lack safety features. Especially, hill roads are vulnerable to monsoon season resulting in blockade due to landslide and erosions. Such conditions cause significant numbers of accidents and fatalities. Traffic jam is a big problem faced by people in major cities. Various incidents of violation of traffic laws have been registered in Kathmandu and other major cities. Many drivers are not adequately trained and licensed, yet they drive in the streets. Be aware and avoid getting into such a vehicle.

To drive to two-wheeler or four-wheeler motor vehicle in Nepal, you should have an appropriate license to the particular vehicle. Otherwise, you will be punished according to traffic laws. We suggest you to not expose yourself to any problems during your stay in Nepal.

Nighttime Travel:

The streets outside the Kathmandu valley lack proper lights, and road conditions are not in good condition. So it is safe if you avoid traveling during night time out of Kathmandu.

Motorcycle Travel:

Know the speed limit of riding bikes and apply safety measures while riding a motorcycle in Nepal. Fatalities from motorcycle accidents have risen dramatically all over Nepal in recent years. Never forget to wear helmet and safety gear and do not ride bikes carrying more than one person.

Buses:

If you need to travel via bus, we suggest you choose day travel rather than night buses due to abnormal road conditions in most of the rural areas. Long-distance travel could be exhausting, and you might want to hop on to the roofs of buses for some adventure. Never travel on the dangerous ceilings to avoid accidents and traffic police as roof travel is against the traffic laws.

Taxis:

Although taxi rides are much more expensive than buses, it could be safer and convenient. All taxis have a meter, but taxi drivers usually do not charge you based on the meter. You better negotiate taxi fare before you step onto their taxi; otherwise, you could be overcharged. In case if you feel like being cheated, contact freely to file a complaint to the traffic police on the street nearby or the local police station.

Pedestrian Travel:

You might not find a separate lane for pedestrians except a pedestrian bridge. Usually, a person should be careful enough to walk safely on the side of a road and follow zebra crossings and use a pedestrian bridge to cross a busy highway. Otherwise, there is several cases of pedestrians facing traffic fatalities in Nepal.

Road Conditions and Safety:

In most of Nepal’s area, roads are poorly maintained and lack safety features. Especially, hill roads are vulnerable to monsoon season resulting in blockade due to landslide and erosions. Such conditions cause significant numbers of accidents and fatalities. Traffic jam is a big problem faced by people in major cities. Various incidents of violation of traffic laws have been registered in Kathmandu and other major cities. Many drivers are not adequately trained and licensed, yet they drive in the streets. Be aware and avoid getting into such a vehicle.

To drive to two-wheeler or four-wheeler motor vehicle in Nepal, you should have an appropriate license to the particular vehicle. Otherwise, you will be punished according to traffic laws. We suggest you to not expose yourself to any problems during your stay in Nepal.

Nighttime Travel:

The streets outside the Kathmandu valley lack proper lights, and road conditions are not in good condition. So it is safe if you avoid traveling during night time out of Kathmandu.

Motorcycle Travel:

Know the speed limit of riding bikes and apply safety measures while riding a motorcycle in Nepal. Fatalities from motorcycle accidents have risen dramatically all over Nepal in recent years. Never forget to wear helmet and safety gear and do not ride bikes carrying more than one person.

Buses:

If you need to travel via bus, we suggest you choose day travel rather than night buses due to abnormal road conditions in most of the rural areas. Long-distance travel could be exhausting, and you might want to hop on to the roofs of buses for some adventure. Never travel on the dangerous ceilings to avoid accidents and traffic police as roof travel is against the traffic laws.

Taxis:

Although taxi rides are much more expensive than buses, it could be safer and convenient. All taxis have a meter, but taxi drivers usually do not charge you based on the meter. You better negotiate taxi fare before you step onto their taxi; otherwise, you could be overcharged. In case if you feel like being cheated, contact freely to file a complaint to the traffic police on the street nearby or the local police station.

Pedestrian Travel:

You might not find a separate lane for pedestrians except a pedestrian bridge. Usually, a person should be careful enough to walk safely on the side of a road and follow zebra crossings and use a pedestrian bridge to cross a busy highway. Otherwise, there is several cases of pedestrians facing traffic fatalities in Nepal.
