Arrival to Tribhuvan International Airport, named after the former king of Nepal. Shortly before landing, the velvety green hilly valley of the Kathmandu valley opens to the gaze, framed from the north by glittering glaciers of the Himalayan ranges.
The first thing you will hear in Nepal is the traditional Namaste greeting, literally meaning “I greet God in your person.”
Nepalese entry visa is issued at Kathmandu Airport ($ 25 and 2 photos 3 × 4).
The very same day of arrival we’ll get you to visit a Buddhist stupa, which is located in the Tibetan quarter of Boda and is a religious centre for the entire Tibetan population of Kathmandu. This Bodnat is the largest stupa in Nepal and one of the mightiest in the world. Like any stupa, its base in the form of a mandala symbolizes the earth, a hemispherical vault — water, a spire of 13 steps (according to the number of steps to nirvana) — fire, an umbrella — air, and crowning belvedere — the sky.
