Meeting at airport upon arrival by Office Personnel. Transfer to hotel. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the Kathmandu Valley is the political and cultural heart of the Kingdom. The urban sprawl that makes up modern Kathmandu is in fact two cities, Patan and Kathmandu.
After short relaxation at the hotel, visit one of the Hindu cultures in Nepal, Pashupatinath. This is the place where holy saddhus pray. The Pashupatinath Temple is a famous, sacred Hindu temple dedicated to Pashupatinath and is located on the banks of the Bagmati River 5 kilometres northeast of Kathmandu Valley in the eastern city of Kathmandu the capital of Nepal. This temple is considered one of the sacred temples of the Hindu faith. The temple serves as the seat of the national deity, Lord Pashupatinath. This temple complex is on UNESCO World Heritage Sites' list Since 1979. This "extensive Hindu temple precinct" is a "sprawling collection of temples, ashrams, images and inscriptions raised over the centuries along the banks of the sacred Bagmati River". (The above sightseeing is for a maximum of 03 hours after the vehicle reports at the hotel)
Drive to Janakpur. Janakpur is 240 km approx from Kathmandu and is a 7 hours drive approx. Upon arrival at Janakpur, you will be transferred to the hotel. Janakpur is the birthplace of Goddess Sita. This city is also known as Janakpurdham, which was founded in the early 18th century. According to oral tradition, an earlier city existed in the area, also known as Janakpurdham, which was the capital of the Videha dynasty that ruled the Mithila region in ancient times.[
Later after freshening up, visit Janaki Temple on foot. The temple is 5 mins walk from the hotel. It is often considered the most important model of Koiri architecture in Nepal. According to legends and epics, King Janak ruled this area during the Ramayana period. His daughter Janaki (Sita), during her Swayambar, had chosen Lord Rama as her husband and became the queen of Ayoydhya. Their marriage ceremony had occurred in the nearby temple which is also called Vivaha Mandap. Day free at leisure. Overnight at the hotel.
Retracing the same path, drive back to Kathmandu and transfer to Hotel. Rest of day at leisure. One can indulge in shopping or visit the casinos trying their lady luck on their own. Stay overnight at the hotel.
This morning your tour will take you for a visit to Patan. Also known as Lalitpur, the city of beauty is separated from Kathmandu only by the Bagmati River and is the second largest town in the valley. Lalitpur is fragmented from other cities due to its substantive architectural ancient masterpieces. Patan's central Durbar Square is absolutely packed with temples: It's an architectural centre point with a far greater concentration of temples per sq. meter than in Kathamandu or Bhaktapur. Within the city also lies the Tibetan refugee centre, home to most of the valley's Tibetan population. While technically refugees, the Tibetans are some of the wealthiest people in the valley because of the carpet industry they operate. For those looking to bring home a fine Tibetan carpet, this is the place to shop. You will then go to Swayambhunath the golden spire of the 5th-century Swayambhu stupa is adorned with a colourful fluttering of prayer flags; it crowns a hill overlooking the Kathmandu Valley and offers fantastic views over the city of Kathmandu. Swayambhunath is one of the most recognizable symbols in Nepal and the painted eyes of Buddha watch all who ascend the worn stone steps.

Later, you will be transferred to the airport in time to board your flight for your onward journey.
