After breakfast around 7:30 we start our full day sightseeing of Kathmandu valley which are briefly stated belows.
The magnificent temple of Lord Pashupatinath about 5 kms north-east of Kathmandu, is situated amidst many other temples on the right bank of the river Bagmati. Pashupathinath is the guardian spirit and the holiest of all Shiva shrines in Nepal.Lord Shiva is known by many different names; and Pashupati is one. Pashu means leaving beings, and Pati means master. In other words Pashupati is the master of all living beings of the universe. This is how lord Pashupati is eulogized in the Vedas, Upnisada and ohter religious books.The oldest ever chronicle in Nepal, Pashupati area is regarded as one of the most important places of pilgrimages for the followeres of Hinduism.
Boudhanath Stupa (or Bodnath Stupa) is the largest stupa in Nepal and the holiest Tibetan Buddhist temple outside Tibet. It is the center of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu and rich in Buddhist symbolism. The stupa is located in the town of Boudha, on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. Bodnath was probably built in the 14th century after the Mughal invasions; The five Buddhas also personify the five elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether), which are represented in the stupa's architecture. The base of the stupa consists of three large platforms, decreasing in size. These platforms symbolize Earth, and here you can look out at the mountains while listening to the chants of the devout doing kora, walking around the stupa praying.
After lunch we head atop a hill on the western edge of the Kathmandu Valley, the ancient Swayambunath Stupa (known to tourists as the Monkey Temple) is Kathmandu's most important Buddhist shrine. The sleepy, all-seeing Buddha eyes that stare out from the top have become the quintessential symbol of Nepal. hen this temple was founded about 2,000 years ago, Kathmandu Valley was filled with a great lake. According to Buddhist legend, a single perfect lotus grew in the center of the lake. When the bodhisattva Manjusri drained the lake with a slash of his sword, the lotus flower settled on top of the hill and magically transformed into the stupa. Thus it is known as the Self-Created (swayambhu) Stupa. The earliest written record of the Swayambunath Stupa's existence is a 5th-century stone inscription, but scholars believe there was probably a shrine here as early as the 1st century. Even before that, it is likely that animist rites took place on this hill. Swayambunath is one of Nepal's oldest Buddhist temples and it has an ancient atmosphere, especially when one approaches on foot with the pilgrims. The primary approach to the temple is from the eastern side, where 365 ancient steps lead up the steep forested hillside. The base is about a 20-minute walk from the center of Kathmandu. This staircase is the only route pilgrims would consider and is the most memorable way for any visitor to experience the stupa. However, an alternative is to drive or take a taxi to the west side, where there are only a few steps to climb to the top.
Budhanilkantha Temple is located at the base of Shivapuri Hill within the Kathmandu valley on the northern side. It is also known as mystical Budhanilkantha temple or Narayanthan temple .Budhanilkantha literally means “Old Blue Throat”. It is only nine kilometer away from the main city. It is a deity of Lord Vishnu; Lord Vishnu is also known as Narayan.It is called Vishnu (Narayan) Jalasayan lying on Ananta Sesa, in the cosmic ocean. The deity is about thousand years old. Lord Vishnu is about five meter (Seventeen fits) long and lying in a thirteen meter (forty three fits) long tank, as if floating with his legs crossed with his sleeping body resting on the coils of Ananta and his 11 hooded head.His four hands hold the four symbols of Vishnu, the Shankha as conch shell, Chakra as disc,Gadha as club and Padma as lotus flower. It is believe that the deity was carved in the seventh or eighth century during the Licchavi period. Hindus can walk down the steps and touch his feet. It is with the sacredness of this particular god that a deep seated belief was created by King Pratap Malla through a prophetic dream. It was his strong belief and fear that should the King of Nepal visit the Budhanilkantha temple, death would be threatening immediately to fall upon his departure. The two other images of the deity which were carved during the same time lie at two particular destinationa, the Balaju Garden were public viewing can take place and the beautiful Royal Palace in Kathmandu.It is here at Budhanilkantha temple, however that public is not permitted.

Sarangkot is the most popular tourist destination from where the tourist can enjoy the great view of the Pokhara Valley and the magnificent view of the mountains. Sarangkot is only 5 km from Lake Side, Pokhara. Sarangkot is the highest view point for a sunrise and it is just 1592m high. Sarangkot is 5 degrees cooler than Pokhara. Sarangkot can be reached easily by 45 minutes by a car ride to the top from Pokhara and then 45 minutes hike up to the main view point. Many tourists come to Sarangkot for sunrise view and go back after few hours but it will be good if tourist stay there for one night and enjoy the view and city light of Pokhara from Sarangkot.

On the southern direction the village overlooks the city of Pokhara and its lake on the north-western outskirts of the city.
Davis Falls is a waterfall located at Pokhara in Kaski District, Nepal. An interesting aspect of the falls is that the water travels through a natural tunnel prior. The water from the fall flow about 500 feets through the natural tunnel at the depth of 100 feets from ground level. In the year 1961, a Swiss tourist who was just swimming in the Phewa Lake was swept away due to the unexpected overflow in the dam water and her husband was helpless. Thus, her body was never recovered and was vanished forever.Then the fall was named after her name as Davis Falls . In Nepali it is also called Patale Chango, which mean underground Waterfall. As, the name given the water flows under the ground through its natural tunnel of 500 feets from the fall made by the water currents beneath the land. The water passes through the cave called Gupteshwor Mahadevcave beneath the land. The source of water is provided through the dam of Phewa Lake and in the rainy seasons the rise in the water level increases the flow and density of water in this fall. The natural scenery is very impressive.
The Gupteshwar Cave is a sacred tourist destination. It is around two kilometers away from the Pokhara Airport. A symbolic Shivalinga is preserved in the cave. The cave has divided into two sections. One part of the cave is 40 meters in length with natural caves and the Shivalinga. The entrance is 2 meters high and 3 meters wide. The cave begins with few hall rooms which have many passages. Some of the passages are so small that one needs to crawl. To reach the shrine a thousand stairs have to be climbed. The Shivalinga inside the cave is said to be in the same condition since it was explored. This shrine is said to have certain healing powers. Hence many people visit it once in a year to be healed. The second part begins after this temple. It leads to the Davis Fall. Inside the cave photography is not allowed.
Fewa Lake is a freshwater lake in Nepal located in the south of the Pokhara Valley that includesPokhara city; parts of Sarangkot and Kaskikot. The lake is stream-fed but a dam regulates the water reserve, therefore, the lake is classified as semi-natural freshwater lake. It is the second largest lake in Nepal, the largest in Gandaki Zone followed by Begnas Lake. Phewa lake is located at an altitude of 742 m (2,434 ft) it covers an area of about 5.23 km2 (2.0 sq mi) with an average depth of about 8.6 m (28 ft) with maximum water depth is 24 m (79 ft).
