Once synonymous with the mysterious and inaccessible Shangri-La, today Kathmandu draws an ever-increasing number of tourists, catering to independent travelers of various budgets.
Make the 10th (Sun) a memorable day with a climbing tour. Make the 12th (Tue) an unforgettable day with an extreme tour. There's still lots to do: see the world from above with a helicopter tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tridevi Temple, take a stroll through Thamel, and steep yourself in history at Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Occupying the southern bank of the famous Ganges River, the state capital of Patna combines an important religious and regal heritage with a fast-growing commercial and transport hub.
On the 14th (Thu), pause for some photo ops at Martyr's Memorial, take in the spiritual surroundings of Surya Mandir, take in the spiritual surroundings of Begu Hajjam's Mosque, pause for some serene contemplation at St Stephen's Church, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Luke's Church, and finally appreciate the history behind Hanuman Mandir. Keep things going the next day: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Har Mandir Takht, stroll through Buddha Smriti Park, then take an in-depth tour of Bihar Museum, and finally don't miss a visit to Shahid Smriti Park.
