Pashupatinath Temple and Bodhnath Stupa Tour from Kathmandu

Pashupatinath—dedicated to Shiva, the patron deity of Nepal—is one of the world’s holiest Hindu temples, and Boudhanath is a 14th-century Buddhist stupa located within Nepal’s “Little Tibet.” Get an in-depth look at both UNESCO-listed religious sites in Kathmandu during this informative, small-group combo tour. You’ll even have a chance to meet a well-known Nepali astrologer for an optional astrology reading.

What to Expect

Nepal, officially the world’s only Hindu kingdom, is also the birthplace of the Buddha. Both faiths are integral to understanding life in the capital, whose streets are overflowing with packed temples and shrines. You’ll get up close and personal with two of Kathmandu’s most sacred sites during this informative and in-depth combo tour through the sprawling Hindu temple complex of Pashupatinath and Boudhanath, home of a famous stupa in the area known as “Little Tibet.”

At Pashupatinath, you’ll have a chance to meet the bearded, ash-smeared holy men known as sadhus. Your guide will be on-hand to teach you about Hindu beliefs and the importance of Shiva, the three-eyed god who is Nepal’s patron deity. From there, you’ll hop a local bus to the stupa of Boudhanath, which draws pilgrims from all over the world. You can join Buddhists in circling the world-famous landmark, rotating prayer wheels as you go.

Your guide will also introduce you to resident monks, who will share insights into local Buddhist traditions. For an even deeper immersion into Nepal’s spiritual traditions, you can upgrade to have your stars read in consulation with a famous local astrologer.

I did this tour on my last afternoon in Kathmandu, and it was perfect: a wonderful guide (Kishor) who gave clear insight into spirituality in Nepal and knew everything (seemingly!) about the sites we visited. Kishor also has perfect English so he was able to...More

An experience you must have in Kathmandu

I toured the temple and stupa and also stayed for the priest lighting ceremony in the evening. It's not to miss. Not only sacred but very festive and gives you a true feel of Kathmandu. It's attended by many locals.

Interesting but expensive

Attended the so called Spiritual tour in early November 2017. Very good guide, a young woman named Gyanu, and she spoke just about the best English I ever heard in Kathmandu. But why, according to the costs in Nepal, so expensive? Over 50 US dollars...More

Jaw dropping experience at both Pashupatinath Temple and Bodhnath Stupa. We were lucky to catch a special celebration at Bodhnath Stupa, learned about Buddhist art, and received blessing from a monk at temple. Then we arrived at the Pashupatinath Temple just in time for their...More
