Pashupatinath is one of the most revered Shiva temples in the earth located on the bank of the Bagmati River 3 km east of Kathmandu city. Pashupatinath is a two-tiered golden temple with four silver doorways. Around this temple, there are hundreds of Shiva Linga’s shrines and holy symbols. It is believed that the Pashupatinath temple was built in the 5th century. Every day many Hindus from different places gather here to the darshan and puja of this temple.

My husband and I did Nepal Tour 7 nights 8 days in the first week of April 2018. The trip was fantastic. We visited Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. Before we fixed this trip Mr. Suman, the manager, he sent us detail on various trips to Nepal in the email. He explained features of each trip. Finally, we selected 8 days trip as it includes cultural heritage, nature, and wildlife. As he told us in the email we experienced a lot here. It is amazing… the temples, palaces built before many centuries in Kathmandu, beautiful Himalayan vista, lake, cave and museum in Pokhara, exciting elephant back safari and jungle activities in Pokhara. Suman arranged us the good hotel, comfortable transport, knowledgeable guide in every place. We loved Nepal and its tourism diversity. Thank so much Suman and your team for your excellent expertise. See you again soon for next trip.
