The sheer size of Mount Everest when you look down is a mind-blowing experience, twice the size of the French Alps and more awe-inspiring from above. Sometimes the mountaintop feels so close that you could almost reach through your window and touch it!

Discover The Heritage Haunts Of Kathmandu

Begin your tour at Pashupatinath, an immensely revered pilgrimage site built in the design of a Buddhist pagoda. At the Swayambhunath Temple, its your turn to spin the sacred prayer wheels that encircle its huge circular base, each embossed with Buddhist mantras. Admire the traditional Buddhist artwork placed within the shrine (chaitya) and afterwards, attend a prayer session by Buddhist monks. Afterwards, travel to the ancient Boudhanath Stupa, one of the oldest and largest Buddhist stupas in Nepal. Admire its graceful architectural lines and watch Tibetan pilgrims circle the Stupa as part of their prayer rituals. You can light a traditional butter lamp and offer your prayers, if you wish.

What our guests say about this trip

Enchanting Travels provided peace of mind for both myself and my daughter who was traveling internationally by herself. The accommodations booked were perfect. The Trip Coordinator was personable, patient, flexible and available through the entirety of the trip. From booking through trip completion, the experience was amazing. I would absolutely choose Enchanting Travels again!
