What To Expect
Meet up with your guide and walk to the nearest bus-stand. Jump on local transport to one of the holiest temples for Hindus all around the world- Pashupatinath. Join your guide through the spiritual journey as they provide an insight into the Hindu religion, the cycle of birth and death and the story behind the Sadhus - Hindu Holy Men, who renounce their hedonistic social life to devote their life to Shiva (Hindu God of Destruction) to whom the temple is dedicated. Witness one of many cremations along the banks of Bagmati river and on the sanctimonious grounds of temple. Interact with soot-smeared, saffron-clad, dreadlocked Sadhus.
Spiritually high, travel by local transport to reach the largest Buddhist Stupa in Nepal (possibly, in the world). Follow the pilgrims circumventing the Stupa spinning the prayer wheels. Offer prayers to Lord Buddha lighting a traditional butter lamp at the main entry way to the Stupa. Converse with one of the resident monks and learn more about the Buddhist philosophy. Food for thought, time to fill the stomach! You have time for lunch at a roof-top restaurant commanding an enticing view of the Stupa. Following lunch walk in to the abode of one of the most sought after astrologers in Nepal. Be amazed by how he deconstructs the mystery that is you and your future. Return a transformed person!

As dress standards are conservative throughout Asia and as this trip visits religious sites, modest clothing is strongly recommended, even swimwear. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, light, and long clothing is both respectful and convenient in the predominantly warm Asian climate. Singlets, tank tops, and topless sun bathing are all unacceptable. In visiting religious sites men often need to wear long trousers and women a long skirt or sarong.
Children below 6 years are free of charge.
