What to expect

Cover all spiritual bases on this multifaith Kathmandu tour! Meet up with your guide and fellow travelers at the meeting point and hop in for a ride in a cab to the largest Buddhist Stupa in Nepal: the Boudhanath Stupa. Rotate the prayer wheels and offer prayers to Lord Buddha by lighting a traditional butter lamp. After a short 15-minute walk, you'll get to Pashupatinath Temple, the largest Hindu pilgrimage site of Nepal. Here, you'll get the chance to learn more about Hindu beliefs, the cycle of birth and death, and the stories of Sadhus - Hindu Holy Men, who renounce their social life to devote their life to Shiva. You can also get your future read by a local palm-reader!

Witness one of many cremations along the banks of the Bagmati River, and interact with Sadhus. As the sun goes down, find yourself surrounded by locals as they participate in the mesmerizing every-day ritual called “Aarati,” which is an offering of lights to Lord Pashupatinath. Make sure you keep near your guide and your group, it's easy to get lost in the crowd!
