18 Danish visitors to Nepal recently from October 27 to October 30 had a great time here in Kathmandu with Explore Himalaya. The group arrived to TIA from Paro, and was directly escorted to Benchen Vihar Guest House for their accommodation. Bechen Vihar Guest House is itself a monastery located right in the center of Kathmandu.

It is the perfect place to stay in, if you are keenly interested in Monastery culture. Next two days on 28th and 29th the Danish group had cultural sightseeing tour around the Kathmandu valley. They visited the popular UNESCO heritage sites in the city which includes Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, Changunarayan and the durbar squares of three cities within the valley.
Cremation at Pashupatinath- Kathmandu.
The group probably had the most eventful vacation in Kathmandu as they were getting some opportunities to witness the Nepalese culture to some extend at these destinations. They decided to re-visit Swayambhunath in their own, on October 30; the day they flew back.

We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
