In Patan we take you to visit Patan Durbar Square, Hiranya Varna Mahavira, and Mahaboudha, which are very close to the old palace, believed to have been built in 299 AD. There are many famous and beautifully carved windows, doors and balconies. Mahaboudha is made of Terracotta bricks and pagoda style structure of Mahavira dedicated to Lord Buddha. It is built in 13th century. Swayambhunath is 2000 years old Buddhist stupa (Chaitya), known as monkey temple. Boudhanath is one of the most popular Buddhist pilgrimage center. The legend has it that Goddess Manjushri found a shrine here after she drained the water from the lake. The stupa represents the mind of the Buddha. It is believed to have been constructed in the fifth century by King Mandeva. Pasupatinath is the holiest Hindu shrine in the world dedicated to Hindu god ‘Shiva.’ The temple is located on the bank of Bagmati-river. Every year on the day of Shivaratri, (Night dedicated to Shiva) in February, Hindu sadhus (pious men) and pilgrims from all over the world comes to pay respect to Pasupatinath.

Pokhara is your first stop before you head to the mountain. It is a small city situated by a lake. From Pokhara travel up the winding road to the mountain that has crispy cool air. After a short drive you walk to Chandrakot; you are in the middle of the mountain villages. You could see himalayan peaks real close. It is simply great to see the wonderful view of the mountain and the snow caped Himalayan range. The walking trail to these villages and camp are wide and easy for your legs – age is not a barrier. If you enjoy walking it is simply nice. The trek staffs in the camp welcome you and make you comfortable. Even if this is your first time in tent, you will enjoy it thoroughly. If kids are around they love to enjoy camping, especially when it is just below the lofty peak. The magnetic attraction of the mountain is enigmatic. In the evening you will have bar-b-que dinner with wine and 3 course camping meals. Sit around the camp fire and exchange your story of the past days. Next morning you are wakened up to see the mountain range that put on different colour than what you saw the previous evening.
