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.

Great Trekking Experience

I did the ABC Trek with them. It was a great trekking experience. We only had 12 days, so we customized their 14-day trip to make it a 12-day trek to Annapurna. The company had everything organized carefully, and the trip was very well executed. Ram, the guide, was very helpful throughout the whole trek. Thank you, Ram.

This Was By Far One Of Best Services

This was by far one of the best services I'd gotten. The trip was super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Sanjib and Ram were both excellent and knowledgeable. We trekked to Annapurna Base Camp in November, and it was by far our best trekking experience. They were also incredibly caring, which is important when you are trekking to high altitudes where you have never been before. They always ask how we feel and always check our pulses. Thank you for caring for us throughout the trek. I highly recommend using Heaven Himalaya for any hikes in Nepal.

Amazing Post-COVID EBC Trek

Thank You for making our post-COVID EBC trek amazing. The guides, porters, and Mr. Ram did a great job from the beginning of our COVID test at a hotel in Kathmandu till our farewell in a restaurant in Thamel. We were at our own pace and never hurried. We felt safe and immensely enjoyed our Nepal vacation. With heaven Himalaya, nothing goes wrong. I highly recommend them to other travelers who will book Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek.
