    In the morning after having breakfast we begin tour around Kathmandu with professional English

    Swoyambhunath –“the Self Existing One’. The oldest Buddhist stupa of Nepal situated in the small hill,

    from where you can see the nice view of Kathmandu valley. Historian believes that it is the oldest

    history of Kathmandu. No sooner you enter the periphery of Swoyambhunath you will see the monks,

    chanting religious words and monkeys chattering and hanging around the different temple and trees. It

    is also known as monkey temple, especially given by the tourist.

    Bouddha nath Stupa: the ancient stupa of Boudhnath is one of the biggest Buddhist stupa of Nepal,

    situated in the northern part of Kathmandu valley, which is one of the trading routes of Nepal with Tibet

    in ancient time. Tibetan merchants used to take rest and offers praying in this place during their trading

    time. Later when Tibetan refugees enter Nepal in 1950s, most of them decided to stay around the same

    place. Even now most of the monk in Boudhanath is from Tibet. Around the stupa you can see some

    Buddhist painting school of traditional paints “Thanka”.

    Pashupatinath Temple: Pashupatinath the national deity of Nepal is one of the most significant Hindu

    temples of Lord Shiva in the world, located on the banks of the Bagmati River in the eastern part of

    Kathmandu. The word Pashupatinath is derived from three Sanskrit words: “pashu” means organism,

    “pati” means protector, and “nath” means Lord. Hence in hindu mythology Pashupatinath means

    protector and Lord of all living things. The bank of Bagmati River is the cremation centre of Hindu dead

Testimonials

They were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!

My experience with Mega Adventures could not have been any better! When I arrived in Kathmandu, I was warmly received by a member of the staff who, after dropping my bags off at the hotel, kindly led me around the city. After spending a few days exploring that wonderful city and meeting my climbing guide, we flew out to Lukla to begin our trek. Our goal was to summit Island Peak with a stop at Everest base camp along the way for acclimatization. Throughout the trek, my guide and porter were incredibly supportive and engaging and taught me so much about the region and culture. Although we ultimately were unable to summit Island peak due to weather conditions (one of the greatest challenges of climbing) we did reach approximately 6,000m, the highest I had ever been. I was immensely satisfied with the climb. Though I have taken a mountaineering course previously and had the opportunity to climb many of the highest peaks in Washington State, I was new to the Himalayan Mountains. My guide taught me several new techniques to enhance safety while climbing and provided a safe, encouraging environment. I would highly recommend this guiding company, as they were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!
