We will be driving to Swayambhunath Temple major attraction of this Tour. Swayambhunath is situated on a hilltop rising above Kathmandu city; you can spot it from afar as the crown of the temple glints in the afternoon sun, with all the prayer flags fluttering above it. Legend has it that once the entire valley was filled with water, it was an enormous lake, which grew a lotus.
Thus valley came to be known as Swayambhu, meaning "Self-Created." This is also an essential stop for Buddhist pilgrims on their Kathmandu Tour. Climb up the 365 steps to reach the "Swayambhunath" Stupa. It is also popularly known as the Monkey Temple, as it is home to troops of mischievous primates.

This Tour runs all time of the year, but we recommend doing it during either Spring (March to May) or Autumn (September to November). Nepal is a country whose climate depends on the monsoon. There is usually a dry season, which runs from October to May, and the monsoon season, from June to September.
From June to September, the monsoon season is characterized by heavy and violent rains that reach their peak between mid-June and the end of August. We do not recommend this period of heavy rainfall when the heat intensifies. In September, the rains become less intense, especially in the valleys, especially those near Tibet, where they are even non-existent.
The dry season, from October to April, is the most recommended. This is the time when Nepal's traditional festivals take place. The sunshine is necessary, the atmosphere pleasant during the day, with maximum temperatures reaching, in Kathmandu, 16 degrees celsius in January, the coldest month. February, March, April, and November are the most pleasant as the air softens, with maximum temperatures reaching 24oC in April. Excellent period for tourism and trekking. The dry season is preferred to discover Nepal.
We offer airport pick-up and drop-off services. On arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, our representative will meet you and drive you to your hotel. On the last day of your trip you will be transferred to the international airport well in time (3 hours prior to your flight’s scheduled departure) to catch your flight.

Some of the vaccinations require six months for a complete course and it is advisable to take the full course before embarking on an adventure to a foreign country. You may not have to worry about tropical illnesses if you are trekking in the mountains. You highly recommended COVID 19 Vaccine.
Nepal is one of the safest and hospitable countries in the world for travelers.
