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.

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.

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.

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.
