Pashupatinath Temple and Bodhnath Stupa Tour from Kathmandu
  • Pashupatinath Temple and Bodhnath Stupa Tour from Kathmandu

    Cover all the spiritual bases on this multifaith Kathmandu tour. Learn about Buddhism in Boudhanath, meet holy Hindu “sadhus” in Pashupatinath, and then look into your future with a local palm-reader. Fingers crossed there's travel, glory and a lottery win ahead!

    Meet your guide at the centrally located Kathmandu Guest House and hop on a local bus to Pashupatinath, a significant Hindu temple devoted to the god Shiva. Your expert guide will explain the Hindu spiritual beliefs surrounding the cycle of birth and death.

    You’ll also have the chance to interact with the colorfully dressed Sadhu monks. Learn why the holy men give up worldly goods to signify devotion and liberation.

    Outside the 17th-century temple, along the banks of the Bagmati River, cremation ceremonies regularly take place. Respect mourning families by refraining from photos or watching the ritual.

    Next, travel by local transport for a short distance to Bodhnath. The shrine is an important religious site for Tibetan Buddhists, and one of the only places in the world that you can see the daily routines of Tibetan monks. The stupa sits along a historic trade route that stretches across Lhasa, Tibet, Nepal and India. Today, people still come to Bodhnath to pray before undertaking a daunting journey such as climbing the Himalayas.

    Marvel at one of the world’s largest stupas as your guide explains Tibetan traditions. You might even see pilgrims spin prayer wheels as they circle the stupa. You’ll also have the opportunity to talk with resident monks about Buddhism and the practices you witness at Bodhnath.

    After wrapping up at Bodhnath, enjoy a relaxing lunch at a nearby rooftop restaurant with a fantastic view overlooking the stupa (own expense). Then walk to the home of a renowned astrologer who will do a reading for you (own expense), if you wish!

    After an enlightening day exploring Kathmandu’s spiritual side, your guide returns you to your hotel.

      You are an amazing guide Bipin. He knows this town, it's little alleyways and the best locations for that special photo. Loved it, recommend it.

      This tour was excellent. When I think of all the things we did while in Kathmandu, the images from this tour are the ones I remember first. Walking the streets and taking a local "bus taxi", took us out of our comfort zone and gave us an incredible insight to what a day in the life of a local is. Pashupatinath Temple with the Sadhu monks and the cremations across river, are both unforgettable visions. Because it was a holiday, there was lots of activity at the Bodhnath stupa. No matter where you looked it was a scene worthy of a postcard. High recommend this tour.

      I really liked the tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, kind and easy-going. I did not much like the fact that I was stuck with other people on the tour who were not so much fun to be around with. I guess its hit and miss. Next time I might get lucky and get to know some great people!

      Nice friendly local guide. Be prepared for a lot of walking. You also catch a local taxi but which is an experience in itself. You get a good over view of each of the temples. Its not a huge group of people on the tour just how many you book with so it is very personal. The guide was willing to answer any questions.
