|Day 1||Arrival in Kathmandu and transfer to the hotel. A representative from Beyul Travel &Treks will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the cozy hotel at Boudha. You will have time to recover from jet lag and relax prior to joining Beyul Travel & Treks for an evening meal where you will meet the team and be briefed about your trip.|
|Day 2||In the morning, we will visit the Boudhanath Stupa, one of the most iconic stupas in the world. We will then drive to Swayambhunath, which is situated in the middle of Kathmandu valley from where you can see the whole city laid out in front of you. On a clear day, you can witness the clear Himalayas that surround the valley. Exploring Swayambhunath is a wonderful experience. After lunch, we will drive to Pharping to explore there and return to the hotel in the early evening.|
|Day 3||On this day, we will take a short drive to Kopan Monastery, which is one of the largest monasteries. After that, we will drive for about 2 and a half hours towards Namobuddha Monastery which is located near a serene village and on top of a hill, so the views from the top are stunning. If our tour party is large enough, we may be lucky enough to receive some teachings from the Rinpoche. Should you choose to, at 4 pm we can stay for the monks’ prayers inside the monastery. We will spend our night in this monastery.|
|Day 4||Hike around the monastery and leave for Kathmandu for scheduled flight.|
