Overview

Spirituality is something people do not talk much about. It is a journey to go through ourselves to know ourselves better. But everyone is so busy in a world full of materialistic things that they have overlooked the inner elements.

Just the way it is essential to go out on a journey somewhere, it is equally necessary to go on somewhere inside us. The inner journey into ourselves is the journey that takes us to places in life. If you are also on the journey of self-reflection and knowing yourself, this one-day Spiritual Sightseeing Tour in Kathmandu is the best bargain.

Hand-crafted by an expert team of Sabbatical Explore Nepal, Spiritual Sightseeing in Kathmandu is a short tour for those who are into spirituality and religious things. It happens in the capital of Nepal, which we believe is the capital of spirituality as well.

Unsurprisingly, the historical city of Nepal is home to various Hindu and Buddhist spiritual places that are well popular across the world. The likes of Pashupatinath Temple, Swaymbhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple), and Boudhanath Stupa are from here only. And this Spiritual Sightseeing Tour in Kathmandu reaches the doors of the just-mentioned spiritual sites.

From the holiest Hindu Temple, Pashupatinath, to one of the largest spherical Buddhist stupas in the world, Boudhanath, this one-day tour goes to the places where we will find nothing but nirvana, peace, and spirituality. These are the sites where people across the world arrive just to know themselves from different angles. And that is why you must visit these places if your wish is the same.

What you seek shall find you. And we believe that Spiritual Sightseeing Tour in the outskirts of Kathmandu is just a medium for you to reach there.

Itinerary

Day 1: Spiritual Sightseeing Tour in Kathmandu

The Spiritual tour starts and ends in Kathmandu. As you will be already in Kathmandu, we will be at your hotel to pick you up for the tour. You will join an experienced tour guide from Sabbatical Explore Nepal after breakfast. From your hotel, we will drive towards Pashupatinath Temple. If there is no congestion, we will reach on time.

As you may know, Pashupatinath Temple is one of the most important Hindu temples around the globe. Located on the shores of the Bagmati River, a holy river, Pashupatinath is a religious and spiritual site inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, one of the principal deities of Hinduism.

We will explore the temple area, which comprises various temples and shrines. The best thing about Pashupatinath is the spirituality is in the vicinity. We will hear people praying, the river flowing, and people mourning and cremating their loved ones. For your information, the banks of the Bagmati River in Pashupatinath are the holiest place to cremate dead ones around the country. We will experience the sad but undeniable part of life there. Several minutes of the peaceful watch in the temple can enlighten us so many things in life.

Following Pashupatinath, we will move to our next spiritual stop, Swaymbhunath Stupa or Monkey Temple. It is an ancient Buddhist shrine located atop a hill right amid the city's dotted houses. This site has a long history and great importance when it comes to religion and spirituality. Along with the giant Stupa, we can find several old age shrines, temples, a Tibetan monastery, a museum, and a library in the site area. It is also a UNESCO-listed world heritage site.

The atmosphere of Swaymbhunath Stupa is a serene one. People paying a visit to the site take a rotation around the Stupa playing praying wheels. Likewise, the prayers of monks inside the Stupa will bless our ears. This whole atmosphere of the Stupa can bless us spiritually. While we get lost in the peace and prayers at the Stupa, we will see an overall look at the entire Kathmandu valley.

Lastly, we will reach Boudhanath Stupa, one of the most beautiful stupas in the world. It locates on the northeastern side of Kathmandu. The Boudha area, where the Bouddhanath Stupa stands, is an ancient trade route of Nepal and Tibetan traders. We will come across the Tibetan-influenced culture and lifestyle around the place.

Above all, the eyes of Buddha on the Stupa will greet us with a spiritual welcome. We will explore the peaceful surroundings of the Stupa, where monks will be chanting prayers, the prayer flags blowing with the wind, the white layer of the Stupa sparkling blessings, and more. All of that makes Boudhanath Stupa an excellent place for spiritual findings in the outskirts of Kathmandu.

Upon the visits to the three sites, we will return to your hotel to leave you at the hotel. And this is how we will perform the Spiritual Sightseeing Tour in Kathmandu. A full day of existing around these spiritual sites will surely enlighten our soul and mind.

I went to Upper Mustang Trek with them, which I can vividly remember even after 2 months now. I found out about this team from one of my friends. I'm glad he suggested it. Everything went well during the trek. The guide was so humble and good. He showed me things that I could never have if I was traveling solo. I feel a deep connection with the landscapes of Mustang. Thanks to the guide and the team. The trip was a great experience!

Katmandu, Bhaktapur Patan, and another locals city I forgot the name ( Themi) are the most interesting cultural cities for sightseeing in Katmandu valley. It's a very very vibrant and tremendous and much rich culture in Nepal. I went to Pokhara and on the way rafting in the river was great fun. 8 days of trekking to Khopra's dada was awesome and amazing with the fabulous horizontal mountain view of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna series. After the trek, I went to Chitwan for 3 days Jungle Safari and back to Kathmandu via a flight.  I am very thankful to my guide and the organizer Sabbatical Explore Nepal for the best trip arrangement even for a short time. As we have discussed at the farewell dinner together I am sure to be back with my other working colleague. 
I already miss the beautiful mountains and caring people of Nepal. Specially Shiva my guide Shesh.
Namaste ! and see you asap !!

We had a great time with Shiva and his team, from being picked up from the airport to being dropped off there, everything was just perfect!  We had "culture tour and a trip to Shaman Village" Hiking.  Got to see many cultural sites around Kathmandu and was an incredible experience in monastery visiting monks. The program was great and fantastic as far as we wanted away from the tourist crowds, all accommodations were good. It’s really a great opportunity to explore Nepal as local. 
The “TeamSabbatical” were very helpful and friendly as well. When we have a questions or a problem can find someone on the spot immediately to find a answer and solve it. We highly recommend the trip Meet the Monks with Boudhanath Stupa tour, and the Kathmandu Cultural tour together.
