The Kathmandu Pokhara Tour leads you towards the Kathmandu valley initially where you’ll get to enjoy the architectural environment of Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. These squares were built by ancient Malla kings centuries ago when Nepal didn’t even exist. These durbar squares represent the peak of Newari architecture and comprise of landmarks like the Taleju temple, Krishna Temple, the Golden Gate, Kumari Ghar. After dwelling in this medieval art, you will find yourself climbing the stairs to reach Swayambhunath. This stupa has ties to the Tibetan relic ‘Manjushree’ and is a holy place for Buddhists. Besides, another stupa awaits us in Kathmandu, which is the Boudhanath Stupa. This is another vital stupa that represents the influence of Buddhism in the urban commute.
Spend the night in the quaint Nagarkot hill station, and later drive along the Prithivi highway to reach the natural landmark that goes by the name of Pokhara. There is much to do in this city as you will first do boating in the Fewa lake and visit the Tal Barahi temple.
