Overview

Nepal Cultural Tour is one of the complete tour packages in Nepal that allows you to immerse yourself into the country’s deep-rooted unique culture and explore its uniqueness, richness, and authenticity. Nepal is a museum of customs and traditions. It is a country of cultural bliss.

Nepal’s culture differs from cultural practices around the globe. Foremost, the country used to be the only Hindu kingdom in the world. But later, the nation was replaced by the federal republic. Nepal is a secular state now. Still, no wonder Hinduism dominates Nepal.

Moving on to another fact, Nepal is the birthplace of Lord Buddha–the founder of Buddhism. Buddhist followers dominate the Himalayan area. There are many stupas, monasteries, and places built in honor of Lord Buddha. Likewise, Buddhism is the second religion in terms of the population following the faith in Nepal. In your cultural tour in Nepal, one can experience the religious melange of Hinduism, Buddhism, and many other religions.

Nepal Cultural Heritage – Pashupatinath temple

Did you know? Pashupatinath temple, the holiest temple of Lord Shiva, lies in Nepal. The temple has high religious significance. Each year, thousands of Hindu tourists around the globe come to Nepal to visit this temple. It comes in the top list in any religious tour of Hindus in the country.

The temple area comprises many ancient temples, idols, and statues at the Bagmati Riverbank. Even though only Hindus may enter Pashupatinath’s main temple, there are other places to visit for other religious followers.

The daily worship (Aarati) on the bank of the Bagmati River has the power of healing. It drives away all the negative vibes and fills our bodies with positive energy. The cremation site is also a major attraction of the place. It helps you know the death rituals of Hindu people, i.e., how the dead body is burnt after the death rites. Again, burning the body after death is not common in other religions.

The Sadhus in colorful dress and unique attire are the other major attractions of the temple. The temple is one of UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites in Nepal. Exploring the Pashupatinath temple is a great joy.

Henceforth, Cultural Tour in Nepal lets you get insights into the cultural practices of Hinduism.

Get an insight into Buddhism in the Cultural Tour in Nepal.

Swayambhunath stupa

Swayambhunath stupa is a symbol of peace and a holy place for Buddhist pilgrims. The complex comprises stupa, shrines, temples, and monasteries that lie on the hilltop. The stupa is a big white dome with a golden spire on the top of the dome with Buddha’s eyes and eyebrows looking on all sides.

As per mythology, Kathmandu used to be an enormous lake. A legendary man named Manjushree cut a hill with his sword to allow the lake’s water to pass out of the valley. Also, there was a lotus on the lake that sat in the same place where the stupa sits now.

Besides the stupa, there are many colossal statues of Buddha, monasteries, and other shrines around the complex. Many Buddhists visit this place as it holds principal value amongst the Buddhist people. Also, the stupa is in the charts of UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites in Nepal. Cultural Tour in Nepal is a standout amongst other approaches to find the cultural varieties of Nepal.

Boudhanath stupa

Located around 11 kilometers away from the center of Kathmandu is another stupa famous as Boudhanath stupa. It is a beautiful and large stupa place on a massive three-layered Mandela. The prominent white dome structure of the stupa sits upon three-layered whitewashed Mandela is one of the world’s largest stupas. The white color of the structure gives a peaceful and soothing look to this monumental structure. Above the white dome lies a golden spire with Buddha’s eyes on all sides.

It is one of the popular sites for Buddhist people for prayers. The colorful prayer flags and prayer wheels give an authentic look to the stupa. In the morning and evening, the place receives many devotees performing a kora around the structure. Like Swayambhunath stupa, even Boudhanath stupa makes its place in UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites’ charts.

Above all, these stupas will give you an insight into Buddhism and its culture and practices during your cultural journey in Nepal.

Explore the Palaces of the medieval period of Nepal 

With this Nepal Cultural Tour, you can get some insights into Nepal’s vibrant art and history. In Nepal’s medieval period, Malla kings who had a great taste in art and architecture ruled Kathmandu. So, they spent a lavishing life in some boutique-style palaces with beautiful shrines and temples.

Kathmandu Durbar Square is a living example of their great taste and lavishing life. The durbar square is a complex with a palace, temple, and other monuments. It has now turned into a museum that treasures the monuments of history. The wooden works in the windows, pillars, and metalwork in the palaces’ statues and roofs set an exemplary example for all art lovers. If you only have a day to visit these amazing places, you can opt-out of Kathmandu Day Tour.

Best Days of My Life

I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.

Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.

Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek

All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.

I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.

Wonderful Trekking Experience

My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.

Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek

Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.

I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.

Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.

So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.

Glorious Experience in EBC Trek

We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.

We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
