Itinerary Expand all

Our team representative will welcome you at the arrival terminal of Kathmandu airport with your nameplate. We will then transfer you to the hotel for check-in. After check-in, we will conduct a briefing on the photography tour, including the itinerary, ice-breaking session with the local photographer leading this tour, briefing on people and street photography ethics, and discussion on general photography tips. You can choose to relax at the hotel or take a stroll around the vibrant Thamel area in the evening.

 

This day starts with a good breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast, we will be heading to Swayambhunath, popularly known as the “Monkey Temple.” Swayambhunath is one of Nepal's holiest sites, and the stupa has stood as a hallmark of faith and harmony for centuries for both Buddhists and Hindus. Located on a little hillock in the northwest of Kathmandu City, Swayambhunath offers a good vantage point to capture the city's panoramic view.

Next, we will be heading to Pashupatinath, famous as Nepal’s most sacred burning ghats and a few of the remaining living cultural heritage sites globally. Built-in the 5th century, Pashupatinath is one of the four most important religious sites in Asia for devotees of Lord Shiva. You will be able to witness and capture some Hindu rituals, including puja ceremonies and cremation along the sacred Bagmati River.

We will break for lunch (included) before proceeding on our tour to the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The Durbar Square is one of the three old royal palaces of the former Kathmandu Kingdom, and it is Kathmandu’s most spectacular legacy of Newari traditional architecture. Here, you will be able to capture the beautiful and delicate Nepalese architecture of ancient times with local people still worshipping in the shrines.  We will also organize a 30 minutes private photo session with local Nepali dressed in traditional costumes or with Hindu Holy Men (Sadhu) for portrait photography in Durbar Square.

We will be doing some street photography at the bustling local vegetables and spice markets in the evening. The local markets are often an integral part of daily life for locals, and it is the best place to capture candid shots. After visiting the market, we will send you back to the hotel.

Today, we will be heading to Patan after breakfast at the hotel. Patan is known as the City of Fine Arts, displaying the extraordinary fine wooden and metal works of Newari people. We will explore and capture the rich heritage culture such as the Golden Temple, Durbar Square filled with temples and statues, and Patan Museum.

We will then adjourn for lunch at the Patan Museum Café or Rooftop Restaurant (included). After lunch, we will be visiting the ancient and traditional city of Bhaktapur. Among the three medieval old citadels of Kathmandu Valley, Bhaktapur is the most preserved. It is known for its cobbled streets, narrow alleys, unique architecture, and storied history. We will look for photo opportunities while exploring the traditional Durbar Square, 55-window palace, Lion Gate, Golden Gate, and other ancient monuments and observing local potters spinning their wheels and drying out their terracotta wares at the Pottery Square.

We will conclude this day with a walk around the Thamel area, a lively tourist hub, where you can enjoy a walk around old alleys and capture several monuments of significance for the locals.

Optional: If you like, we can substitute the visit to Patan with Everest Short Flight (45 mins) so that you can get a closer look at Mt Everest. However, this is optional depending on flight availability, weather condition and subject to additional cost. 

On this day, we will leave Kathmandu Valley for Pokhara in the morning. Our representative will pick you up from your hotel to the domestic terminal of Tribhuvan International Airport after breakfast. The flight to Pokhara will take approximately 30 minutes, and it offers incredible scenic views of the Himalayas (Ganesh Himal, Mt Manaslu, Mt Annapurna, and Mt Machhapuchhre) from the window.

Being the second-largest city in Nepal and the gateway to trekking in the Annapurna region, Pokhara is beautifully adorned with pristine lakes against a backdrop of high Himalayas snow-capped mountains. The reflection of Mt Machhapuchhre (famously known as the Fish Tail Mountain) and Annapurna range on Phewa Lake is an enthralling moment that every photographer would love to capture.

Upon arrival, we will have our lunch by the lakeside (included). We will explore Davis Fall, Gupteshwor Cave, and Seti Gorge for landscape photography and some caving activities after lunch. In the evening and before night falls, we will be driving up to Sarangkot and check-in at a hotel. Lies at 1,600m, Sarangkot is easily accessible from Pokhara and renowned for its panoramic views of the Himalayan peaks, including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Fish Tail, and Lamjung. It also offers a stunning birds-eye view of the city of Pokhara and Phewa Lake.

Dinner will be served at the hotel (included). You can then have an early rest as we will be setting out very early on the following day.

We will start this day very early at around 4.00 am. We will walk up (about 15-20 minutes) to the Sarangkot viewpoint to capture the blue-hour before sunrise. When the skies are clear, you will be able to capture amazing night photography of the starry sky against the backdrop of the Himalayas or Phewa Lake. However, do note that you will require a tripod for night photography and a jacket to keep yourself warm.

Following that, we will be chasing the dawn and waiting for the morning sun's first rays on the mighty Himalayas. It is truly a mesmerizing moment to see golden sun rays transforming the mountain peaks from snow-white peaks into celestial gold. After sunrise, we will walk back to the hotel for breakfast and rest before checking out. We will then drive back to Pokhara, check-in the hotel, and have lunch.

After lunch, we shall head to the World Peace Pagoda for a sweeping panoramic view of Pokhara city and Phewa Lake. Upon descending from the World Peace Pagoda, we will go boating at Phewa Lake.

The long day will end with a dinner (included) in the busy Pokhara town before heading back to the hotel.

Before breakfast, we will start the day by chasing the sunrise and try out long exposure photography in Phewa Lake. After that, we will go back to the hotel for breakfast, check out, and head to Chitwan National Park via tourist bus or private car.

Chitwan National Park is 932 square kilometers of dense forest, marsh, and grassland, home to 68 species of mammals, 544 species of birds, 56 species of reptiles, and amphibians, 126 species of fish, and many more. It offers opportunities to capture the sights of endangered one-horned rhinoceros, Royal Bengal tigers, leopards, gharial crocodiles, and rare freshwater dolphins. It is a feast for the nature lover and wildlife photographers.

Lunch will be provided either on our way to Chitwan or upon our arrival there. After checking in at the hotel, we will visit the Tharu village for some local people and nature photography.  Thereafter, we will capture the beautiful sunset from the Rapti river bank.

The day will end with a scrumptious dinner (included) and Tharu cultural dance performance at the hotel.

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.

Incredible Scenery and Service

I trekked up to Basecamp with Ram and his Heaven Himalaya team last year and had incredible Scenery and Service. The scenery is just awesome, and Ram took amazing care of everyone in our group. He kept us all entertained and motivated and most importantly, healthy. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Best Experience Ever, Thank You Ram

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the mountains. We made the Three Passes Trek in the Everest region. I can certainly say that it was the ultimate outdoor experience we have ever had, simply astonishing. I'm also very sure that a great part of enjoying that experience the way we did was thanks to our guide (Ram). He's a highly expert in the mountains and more importantly a great person with a big heart and always a smile to offer.

Everest Base Camp Trek

I did the Everest Base Camp Trek back in Nov’18 and it was an awesome experience. My guide, Ram was fantastic, very knowledgeable, and professional. He was very good in all the preparations that he made and was very attentive to my needs. He was very thorough explaining all parts of the trek and he took good care of me, especially I was exhausted on the last day of the trek, he pushed and helped me out to ensure I made it to EBC. I highly recommend going with Ram if you ever wanted to do any treks in Nepal.
