May 1, 2016 - SIghtseeing in Kathmandu 

It was our first day in Nepal. After having a hearty breakfast we started our city tour. Our first site was the holy temple of Pashupatinath. It was a place of religious and cultural importance. We saw the main temple of lord Shiva and many other temples inside the premises. It is a magnificent temple.

The next destination was the temple of Budhanilkantha, the sleeping god. The temple had a large statue of bishnu, sleeping in the pond. Then lastly we headed off to the last site of our city tour, Swyambhunath temple also known as monkey temple. It is beautifully made Buddhist Stupa. As the name says, we saw a lot of monkeys and had been strictly told not to feed them anything as they can be aggressive.

After the city tour we drove back to our hotel in Thamel. Then we had the briefing for the trek by Peak Promotion team. We were told do's nd don’t of the trek. We went for few last minute shopping and were all set for the flight to Lukla.
