We start our tour visiting two more UNESCO World Heritage Site cities adjacent to Kathmandu: Patan and Bhaktapur. Patan is also known as The City of Fine Arts. Patan Durbar Square is one of the places in the Kathmandu Valley where the medieval arts and architecture still remain in their original state. The Durbar Square is full of ancient places, temples and shrines, noted for their exquisite carvings, mostly the Hindu and Buddhist monuments.
Similarly, the medieval town of Bhaktapur, or the Town of the Devotees, preserves medieval arts, architecture, culture, and lifestyle to this date. One is sure to feel like travelling back into the past while walking along the Bhaktapur streets and squares. Breakfast included.
We drive you to Pokhara, one of the most beautiful places on earth. The town offers magnificent views of Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchhare, five peaks of Annapurna and others. Pokhara owns numerous lakes, offers fishing, boating and swimming. It is also the gateway for trekking in the Annapurna Region. Reaching Pokhara, we visit Davis Fall and Gupteshwar Gufa Cave (also called Shiva Gufa). In the late afternoon, explore the surrounding lakeside and see the reflection of the Fish Tail Peak on the lake.

Some of the other places that we visit today include the Seti River Gorge, mountain museum, Bindhabasini Temple as well as many other cultural and natural landscapes.
