If Nepal is famous for anything in the world, it is for its natural presence and as the home of gods, goddess, temples and pilgrimages. Some of the highest regarded pilgrimages in Hindu and Buddhist religions are situated in Nepal. The highest regarded pilgrimage for the followers of Buddhist religion namely Lumbini is the birthplace of Buddha. Janakpur is another Hindu pilgrimage, which is the birthplace of goddess Sita. Sita the female lead of Ramayana is believed to be the daughter of earth and also incarnation of Laxmi the goddess of wealth and wife of Vishnu. Muktinath and Pashupatinath which is another highly regarded Hindu pilgrimage which is ancient as well as highly respected.

This trip is made for you if you wish to do a cultural tour or pilgrimage tour in Nepal. Some temples date back to over 300 years and are just not worth visit for the homage for but also for their architectural magnificence. The design and the craftsmanship have been restored from prehistoric time and is limited as the icon in the modern day. Majority of the trip is overland except the flight to Muktinath temple. Visit this holy land once in the life time and stay blessed forever!
