Kathmandu Day 01. ARRIVE KATHMANDU
Upon arrival at Kathmandu airport, you will be met, assisted and escorted to your hotel by our representative.

After checking in, you can relax for sometime and later in the afternoon proceed for half day sightseeing of Kathmandu city and Swoyambhunath Stupa.

Kathmandu City: Kathmandu Durbar with its medley of temples and shrines is the traditional seat of the royalty where Kings are crowned and their coronations are performed. The big bell; Kal Bhairav Temple; Jagannath Temple with its erotic carvings on the temple struts; Kasthamandap - the temple believed to have been built from the wood of a single tree and from which the city of Kathmandu derives its name, are some views you will enjoy on this tour. But on top of the list is the Kumari Ghar - the temple of the living goddess. For most of the year, the Kumari is available to greet people from the balcony of the temple. Photography is strictly prohibited here. Spend some time browsing through a typical Nepalese market place.

Swoyambhunath Stupa: These 2000 years old stupas are situated approx. 1.8 miles west of Kathmandu on a hillock overlooking the Kathmandu valley. This is one of the most glorious Buddhist temples. It is decorated with the famous "Buddha's eyes", and is surrounded by temples and Tibetan monasteries.

Stay overnight in Kathmandu.

After an early breakfast proceed for half day sightseeing of Pashupatinath and Boudhnath.

Pashupatinath: Lying on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River, this is the country's most important Hindu temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. It was built in 1696 with a two-tiered golden roof and silver doors and is famous for its superb architecture. Each year it draws numerous devotees from all over India.

Boudhnath Stupa: It lies approx. 5 miles east of Kathmandu. This is one of the largest Buddhist Shrines in the world, dating before the birth of Christ. It is the religious center for Nepal's considerable population of Tibetans and there are a number of thriving monasteries. This area is also referred to as 'little Tibet'.

In the afternoon visit Patan City.

Patan: Also known as Lalitpur meaning city of devotees is where you will visit the Patan Durbar Square with its exquisite architectural masterpieces depicting the Newar craftsmanship. Krishna Mandir - a stone structure with 21 spires; Hiranya Varan Mahabihar - the Golden temple; and Mahaboudha - a masterpiece in terra cotta, are some of the other highlights of the tour. After the tour you will continue to the Tibetan Resettlement Camp where Tibetan refugees are rehabilitated. You will see women weaving carpets on their looms.

Stay overnight in Kathmandu.

Local Lady Day 03. KATHMANDU - POKHRA
After an early breakfast proceed by surface to Pokhra.

Pokhra is situated approx. 131 miles east of Kathmandu and is one of the most scenic spots in the country. The Himalayan panorama of the Annapurna range with the dominating peak of Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail) forming the backdrop for the city is a sight to behold. There are many lakes in Pokhra, the major being Phewa lake which is situated on the southernmost point of the city and is a popular tour spot.

Relax in the afternoon and later in the evening enjoy a boat ride on Phewa Lake.

After an early breakfast drive from Pokhra to Kanre for about an hour. We sort out our gear; we commence our walk to Tolka (1850mts). As soon as we leave Kanre, the trail climbs up through the forest and reaches the Australian camp (1950mts) in about one and half hours where one is rewarded by a panoramic view of the Himalayas extending from Dhaulagiri 1(8167mts) to Lamjung Himal (6932mts). After a detour we continue to walk to Pothana (2050mts), a walk of half an hour, during which you will enjoy the splendid views of Machhapuchhre/Mt. Fishtail (6995mts), Annapurna South (7219mts), and Hiunchuli (6441mts). Another 2 hours uphill trek through dense forest of rhododendron and fir, you will arrive at a small pass called Deurali at 2150mts, from where you can once again enjoy the view of the mountains we saw from Pothana. After a steep descent through a dense forest of birds, ferns and orchids walk along Modi Khola Canyon down to picturesque Tolka village at 1850mts. The descent is another 2 hours walk.

Stay overnight in lodge at Tolka.

This morning after breakfast we continue our trek to Chomrong (2170mts). The walking time is approx. 6 hours.

At first the trail descends a long stone staircase to a suspension bridge past some streams, paddy fields of rice and wheat and some unusual oval-shaped houses looking down the Modi canyon valley. This will bring us to the village of Landruk at 1646mts in about an hour. This village has a large collection of teahouses and lodges. The trail now turns up north of the Modi Khola valley, passing alongside rice terraces, then through forests, where one can enjoy a very classic waterfall. After about an hour's walk we arrive at Himal Pani from where a stiff climb will lead to Jhinu Danda at 1750mts where we stop for lunch. There is a nice natural hot spring bath down the river about 15 minutes away and if you so desire you could take a dip. After lunch, we start to walk for Chomrong. It's a long, steep climb, broken only by a few teahouses and a cluster of tea shops at Taglung and then the trail rounds up a bend and enters the big village of Chomrong, a predominantly Gurung village. This village lies tucked close to Mt. Hiunchuli (6441mts) and is the best place to see Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, and Machhapuchhre.
