About
This package combines four of Nepal's most fascinating  Buddhist and Hindu religious sites in the outskirt of Kathmandu Valley, which takes about 5 to 6 hours hiking. Travel to  Budhanilkantha, the start of your hiking point, where you’ll visit the sacred site of sleeping Hindu deity Vishnu, followed by hiking to  Chunikhel village, mostly inhabited by the Newar community. Hike to  Kapan Monastery and  Pullahari Monastery and finish the hike by visiting  Gokarneshwor Mahadev Temple. All of these sites provide majestic hilltop location, offering magnificent views of Kathmandu Valley.

What to expect
  • In the early morning, between 7 AM and 8 AM, our team will pick you up from your hotel and drop you off at the premise of Budhanilkantha, starting point of hiking. Visit and pay homage to the sleeping Lord Vishnu from the outer periphery of the complex’s pond (non-Hindus are not permitted inside), a visual trick that makes the god appear to float above the water’s surface while your guide explains the background of this unique Hindu figure. Then start hiking to Chunikhel which takes about one and half hour. In Chunikhel, you can see the old traditional houses of Newar community. Later move forward to Kapan Monastery which is one of the most popular monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism. Here, a large number of foreigners arrive here to study Buddhism and meditation. Afterward, hike to Pullahari Monastery which is just one hour walk away from Kapan Monastery. It has its own unique history dating back to 1986 AD. Then start descending to Gokarneshwor Mahadev Temple. In late August or early September, people go to this temple to bathe and make offerings in honor of their fathers, living or dead, on a day called Gokarna Aunsi. On finishing the excursion, our team will come pick you up and then transfer you to your hotel.

Spiritual tour with peace loving people
Jan 2019 • Friends
It was an excellent experience sharing my time with the experts of historical and spiritual knowledge. I'm really very satisfied with the service provided by Asian Heritage Treks. I got to know very much about Hindu gods and goddesses, beliefs of people, lord Buddha, Stupa, Gumba... which was only possible by the help of our guide.
I definitely will recommend my colleagues visiting Nepal to enjoy the Kathmandu spiritual hiking package.
