Visit Patan, the 'city of beauty' with its many palaces and temples embellished with intricately carved gods and goddesses in erotic poses. Visit to the sculpture foundry to meet a master sculptor of sacred images. For centuries the Nepalese have become famous throughout the world for their statue making and after a visit to the foundry, you will know why. Here we learn the lost wax process and even have the opportunity to actually model the wax in our hands. Having observed how the sacred art is created, one now can really appreciate the masterpieces of Hindu and Buddhist art that are housed in the temples and monasteries of Nepal — the Land of Gods. Follow our guide as he gives you an insider’s guided tour of the Buddhist temples in Patan — the City of Beauty. Travel to the typical Newar village of Bungmati. Founded in the 7th century, Bungmati is home to one of the most important Gods of the Kathmandu Valley known as Matsyendranath, the God of Rain and compassion, worshipped equally by Hindus and Buddhists, and accredited by local people with the introduction of rice plantations in the valley. The rich heritage and relatively unchanging lifestyle of the Newar people is clear to see both in Bungamati and in the nearby village of Khokana, which we also visit. On the southern edge of the Kathmandu valley, the mighty Lichchhavi rulers of Nepal established Khokana in the 7th century that remains relatively isolated from modern Nepali life.

The scenic valley of Pokhara is an enormous sunlit playground covered by green-forested hills, waterfalls and terraced fields.

Devi’s fall, locally known as Patale Chhango (Hell's fall), is an awesome waterfall.
