This tour will let you see how two different religions and cultures co-exist peacefully in Kathmandu. Pashupatinath lies on the banks of Bagmati River and this Hindu Temple precinct consists of temples, ashrams, inscriptions and images. Boudhanath area, which is just 5 mins drive away from Pashupatinath, is rich in Tibetan Culture within Kathmandu and is home to more than 50 Tibetan Monasteries (Gompas).
Religion is a way of life and at the heart of every religion lies designated sacred places where deities are remembered and worshiped. These sacred places are often the birthplace center of the finest architecture, symbols, and culture within that religion. Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa also bear these hallmark.
The trip will last for about 5 hours. Our designated guide will come to pick you up from your hotel in Kathmandu. As soon as all of our team members assemble, we will take you to Pashupatinath in a private van.
