Kathmandu, as we all know, is the capital city of Nepal and is also known as a city of temples. Every few minutes, you walk past a temple in Kathmandu, be it small or big. Newari people, the natives of Kathmandu, have preserved their age-old culture, tradition, and architecture to this day. You'll feel like you're in some ancient settlements at some particular locations in Kathmandu.

The places you'll visit in Kathmandu are Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swambhynath Temple (Monkey Temple), Pashupatinath Temple, and Bouddhanath Stupa. Each of these sites is listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site and carries great significance. Pashupatinath is a sacred Hindu temple of Lord Shiva, whereas Swambhunath is a great Buddhist shrine. Bouddhanath might be the largest Buddhist stupas you've ever seen, and the ancient architecture and history of Kathmandu Durbar Square will amaze you.


Only 140 km away from Kathmandu lies Gorkha, one of the important historical landmarks of Nepal. Although Nepal was never colonized by any other nation, it has a great history of blood and sweat. King Prithvi Narayan Shah of Gorkha started the Nepal unification campaign in 1743 AD by bringing small scattered kingdoms under 1 rule. The Gorkha Palace, where he was born, stands tall in the town of Gorkha. Although natural calamities have ruined most of the palace over the years, you can still visit the remanence and a temple there.


Bandipur is a small hilltop settlement of mostly Newari people, which has gained popularity in recent years. Also, 140 km away from Kathmandu, Bandipur is just a 2-hour drive from Gorkha and has impressive hotels and restaurants. The main street of Bandipur is beautifully decorated with flowering plants giving a lively ambiance to the town. You can take a stroll in the backstreets of Bandipur or spend quality time with your travel companions at a nice café; the choice is yours. There is a Hindu temple, a sunset viewpoint, and a cave if you feel like exploring.


Pokhara is the last destination of your 9 Days Tour in Nepal before you head back to Kathmandu for your departure. This beautiful lake city is a tourist favorite because it is rich in natural beauty and less populated than Kathmandu.

Boating in the magnificent Phewa Lake, exploring unspoiled caves, seeing clear waterfalls, watching the hypnotic dawn from Sarangkot, and climbing to the peak of Naudanda for a panoramic Himalayan vista of Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Machhapuchre are some of the fun activities, you'll part take in Pokhara as a part of the tour. Your natural tour of Pokhara will take on a spiritual twist when you stop by the Tal Barahi Temple in the center of Phewa Lake and the World Peace Pagoda at the top of a hill.

Pokhara, a charming lakeside city, offers a wide variety of excellent cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, and nightclubs for you to enjoy.

    Best time for 9 Days Tour in Nepal

    Outfitter Nepal organizes the 9 Days Tour in Nepal throughout the year. It is totally upon you when to join our team for this all-inclusive journey. You don't really need to worry about the weather conditions as all of these places lie in the Hilly region of Nepal, known for its moderate temperature.

    Since you'll travel by road in a luxury tourist vehicle, you don't have to worry about the heat or the rain. However, avoid monsoons (June, July, and August) as the roads might get blocked due to landslides. Winters (December, January, and February) aren't particularly harsh, and a few layers of warm clothes keep you warm.

    If we had to pick up the best time, it would be spring (March, April, and May), with new leaves and flowers decorating the atmosphere, and autumn (September, October, and November) for its pleasant weather and grand festivities.

    We provide both private and shared tours for the 9 Days Nepal Tour package. Kindly choose your dates and reserve your seat. The above itinerary is our standard 9-day package; we can make the alterations for you if needed. Please do not hesitate to contact Outfitter Nepal with any questions or queries.
