“Due to the current blockade of Nepal and the lack of diesel available, there are about 1/3 of the public buses running. This tour required use of the public bus, it was really, really overcrowded and uncomfortable, not only physically but felt we were taking locals places making it hard for them to go about their daily life. Our guide was amazing, lnowledgeable and guided us in culturally acceptable behaviour.”
ITINERARY

Meet up with your guide and walk to the nearest bus-stand (20 mins approx). Jump on local transport to one of the holiest temples for Hindus all around the world- Pashupatinath (20 mins approx). Join your guide through the spiritual journey as they provide an insight into the Hindu religion, the cycle of birth and death and the story behind the Sadhus - Hindu Holy Men, who renounce their hedonistic social life to devote their life to Shiva (Hindu God of Destruction) to whom the temple is dedicated. Witness one of many cremations along the banks of Bagmati river and on the sanctimonious grounds of temple. Interact with soot-smeared, saffron-clad, dreadlocked Sadhus.

Spiritually high, travel by local transport to reach the largest Buddhist Stupa in Nepal (possibly, in the world). Follow the pilgrims circumventing the Stupa spinning the prayer wheels. Offer prayers to Lord Buddha lighting a traditional butter lamp at the main entry way to the Stupa. Converse with one of the resident monks and learn more about the Buddhist philosophy.

Food for thought, time to fill the stomach! Lunch at a roof-top restaurant commanding an enticing view of the Stupa.

Following lunch walk in to the abode of one of the most sought after astrologers in Nepal. Be amazed by how he deconstructs the mystery that is you and your future.

Return a transformed person!
