There's no better way of starting your day, than on a spiritually high-note. Which is why your early-morning tour begins at Swoyambhunath, a place of worship, on foot. Follow the path of Hindu and Buddhist devotees, circling the holy stupa, and spinning prayer wheels. Soak in the smells of incense, hypnotic chants of prayers and sound of ringing bells for a truly captivating experience.
From there, your tour continues past backstreet mazes to Kathmandu Durbar Square. This place greets you with countless temples and market places that provide you ample opportunities to mingle with the locals. Be sure to pick vegetables and spices from here, as it's imperative to your lunch.
Make way to meet your kind hosts for the day, who shall cook-up a storm in the kitchen. You can either sit-back and relax while conversing with family members or choose to get-in on the trade secrets of Nepalese cooking. Bid farewell to your kind hosts and make your way back to your hotel.
