Day1  Arrival in Kathmandu
Upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, we will meet you with a private car to take you to your downtown hotel and help you check in. You will have the rest of the day free to rest and relax at your hotel, or you can walk around the nearby Durbar Marg area and the tourist hub of Thamel on your own.

Accommodation:Overnight in Kathmandu

Day2  Kathmandu – Optional Mountain Scenic Flight, Bhaktapur, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambunath
Early this morning you will have the option of taking a scenic mountain flight to see some of the highest mountain peaks in the world, including Mount Everest. We would take you to the airport to board your sightseeing flight early in the morning, with the flight lasting around one hour. You would get an up-close look at some of the world’s highest peaks in the Himalayan mountain range as well as the many glaciers on the mountains. After your flight, we would take you back to the hotel for breakfast. (Optional)

After breakfast at the hotel, we will begin exploring some of the most iconic sites of Kathmandu. First up is Kathmandu Durbar Square, one of three royal palace squares in the Kathmandu Valley, and the royal residence for Nepalese rulers until the 19th century. This was also the site for important ceremonies such as the coronation of Nepalese monarchs for centuries. One interesting feature at the south end of Kathmandu Durbar Square is the Kumari Chowk – a gilded cage that holds the Kumari, a young girl chosen through an ancient and mystical selection process to become the human incarnation of the Hindu mother goddess, Durga. This “living goddess” is worshipped during religions festivals and makes public appearances at other times when the appropriate fees are paid to her guards.

From Kathmandu Durbar Square, we will move on to Swayambhunath Temple, also known as the Monkey Temple due to the swarms of monkeys that inhabit the area. The Buddhist stupa at Swayambhunath is at least 1,500 years old and may be as many as 2,000 years old. It has a gilded spire and huge white dome located under thousands of multicolored prayer flags, with the spire having four faces of the Buddha looking out in all 4 directions. This religious complex consists of the ancient stupa and a variety of shrines and temples that are revered by both Buddhists and Hindus.

After Swayambhunath, we will travel about 14 kilometers (9 miles) on to the city of Bhaktapur, an ancient village notable for the best preserved palace courtyards and old city center in Nepal and its rich culture, temples, and wood, metal and stone works of art. After exploring Bhaktapur, we we will travel back into Kathmandu to spend the night.

Accommodation:Overnight in Kathmandu

Swayambhunath

Bhaktapur Durbar Square

Day3  Kathmandu – Patan Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Boudhanath
We will start off tomorrow’s sightseeing with a visit to Patan Durbar Square. We will drive about 5 kilometers (3 miles) southeast of Kathmandu to the city of Lalitpur to explore Patan – another former royal complex filled with ancient architectural masterpieces such as dozens of Buddhist and Hindu temples, pagodas, stone and wood carvings and the former royal palace buildings. The city of Patan is believed to have been established around 2,300 years ago by the Kirat Dynasty. From Patan, we will move on to Pashupatinath Temple, a pagoda-style Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Pashuptinath is the oldest Hindu temple in Nepal, with its origins dating back to around 400 B.C.

After visiting Pashuptinath, we will travel on to Boudhanath, a massive Buddhist stupa that dates back to the 5th or 6th century A.D. The Boudhanath stupa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is where thousands of pilgrims make a ritual circumnavigation of the massive dome. The stupa is surrounded by many monasteries and other supporting religious architecture.

In the evening we will have a farewell dinner with the small group together at a traditional local restaurant.

Accommodation:Overnight in Kathmandu

I had to mention our tour guide – Puktso because he is too nice. He is very passionate and thoughtful when he talked with us on the daily tour arrangement. We reschedule a little bit and he gave us great ideas. I like all the stories and insight knowledge on local life he shared with us. We enjoyed a wonderful trip with his company.

My best friend and I were looking forward to taking the train ride from Xining to Lhasa. Unfortunately, until the day we landed in Chengdu, our tour operator (different from Asia Odyssey) was unable to purchase the tickets for us. I contacted Danny after Googling and he was extremely helpful. Within 3 hours of contact, he had our train tickets. They were delivered to our hotel the next day before we left for Xining, and until we boarded the train, he was in contact with us to ensure that everything went smoothly. Thanks to Danny, we got to experience this once in a lifetime journey! Highly recommended for excellent and fast response! Thanks, Danny!

I wanted to visit Tibet for a very long time. Since I live in abroad, this wish was like The Everest Mountain, unreachable. After we contacted Ms. Kate, (高小乐), everything became so easy. Kate was very knowlegeable about Tibet, and very patient with our questions. We have been with her for about a year to prepare for the trip. She has provided excellent services. Due to the considerable preparation, the trip went better that I expected. This was the most memorable trip I ever had thusfar. Thanks Kate!

Vielen Dank, Claire, für die tolle Organisation unserer 10-tägigen Reise durch Tibet. Bei den teilweise sehr kurzfristigen Änderungen unserer Reiseroute, warst Du immer sofort zur Stelle und hast uns zusätzliche Optionen, Hotels und Flüge vorgeschlagen und gebucht... in perfektem Deutsch! Das war klasse! Wenn wir nochmals nach Tibet kommen, buchen wir auf jeden Fall wieder über Dich! Danke für alles!

Initially our tour consultant AMY did a fantastic job of coordinating our tour. This included arranging our small group to meet up in Lhasa despite us arriving there on different days. The accommodation was great and AMY followed up during the tour to ensure everything was going smoothly. Great Job AMY !!

On the tour itself we were accompanied by JESSICA for whom I cannot speak highly enough. Her explanations in all the various locations proved she was very knowledgeable. Her English was clear and she was always willing and able to answer any queries. Best of all, there was not a single day when she did not greet us with a happy and friendly smile. Participated in countless photos with us. The tour was unforgettable thanks to AMY, JESSICA and Asia Odyssey Travel.
