Day 03: Kathmandu
Discover Kathmandu with our experienced and fun guides - spend the day walking and listening to insider stories about Kathmandu. The guided sightseeing tour under ‘Glimpse of Kathmandu’ covers Bouddhanath Stupa and Kathmandu Durbar Square with food tasting at restaurants around our points of stopover.
Bouddhanath (World Heritage Site): This is the world's biggest Stupa located about 2 kilometers to the north of Pashupatinath Temple. This colossal edifice is known by the name of Bouddhanath, the god of wisdom. It is difficult to assign a period to its creation, as some believe that it was built during the reign of either Shiva Dev or AnshuVerma in the 7th century AD. The design is much like the Swayambhu Stupa, except that the spire consists of squares diminishing in size successively, instead of circles. Bouddhanath attracts Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world.
Kathmandu Durbar Square (World Heritage Site): Kathmandu Durbar Square is an overwhelming frenzy of art and architecture. The medieval palace complex is erected in different styles right beside the Kumari Temple. The enormous courtyard is locally known as the Basantapur Durbar, or Nautale Durbar, and the locality is called Basantapur. The square was constructed in 1770 AD upon the initiation of King Prithivi Narayan Shah to commemorate his successful conquest of the Kathmandu Valley in 1768 AD. The massive pagoda-like structure in the centre houses the tutelary deity of the Malla Kings. The palace building is a maze of stone-paved quadrangles. Coronation ceremonies, until recently, were performed in the main courtyard, the NyasalChowk. The palace façade is a mosaic of intricately carved windows, shaded by gently sloping roofs of shimmering brown tiles.
Day 04: Kathmandu - Nagarkot - Bhaktapur
Besides the fine craftsmanship of doors and windows, art and architecture, Bhaktapur is equally famous for its lush green fresh vegetables within the valley. Utilize the morningexploring the renowned medieval town of Bhaktapur.
For a taste of truly authentic Newari food, we visit a local farmer’s house to taste a home cooked meal made from local ingredients. The spicy food served in the traditional plate made from leaf called ‘lapte’ is worth an experience. Don’t forget to taste the strong local brew called ‘aaila’ and ask them to teach the recipe and components.
After lunch, learn from a local farmer how Kathmandu’s most famous vegetables are grown and take home some freshly picked ones from your new farmer friends. Continue your hike along the countryside visiting various plantations, meeting locals and taking tips of growing vegetables to reach Nagarkot. Watch the magnificent sunset and panoramic view of the valley.
Finish your journey with an entertaining dinner of fusion cuisine by bonfire at camp-site perched among the hills.

Navin Benson de Cozynuk à été absolument remarquable tant pour son professionnalisme que pour sa bienveillance, à faire que notre voyage en INDE , soit un voyage fabuleux. Une grande ponctualité du chauffeur, des hôtels très bien choisis, des visites organisées. Un tour organisé sur mesure. Un très grand merci.
Agencia 100% fiable. Navin y su equipo nos han tratado fantásticamente y Bophal, el conductor, ha sido sin duda lo mejor del viaje. Atento, agradable y muy cercano. Si contactais con la agencia preguntad por él y seguro que no os arrepentis. Gracias por todo. ♥️
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and we traveled around northern India for over 2 weeks. The planning of such a trip takes alot of time and details. If found the perfect company with Xasmin (CozyNuk) working particularly Navin. I would without hesitation use Navin again to help plan a future trip to India (which was magical).
