If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you -A. A. Milne
Everyone has special days in life and the life full of love of many begin on the special day, Valentine’s Day – the day to express love. Love expressions accepted on Valentine Day go miles in the journey of life. So celebrating love is one the most beautiful inventions mankind has done as without love, life becomes miserable.
While celebrating love, people tend to be in the most romantic places of the town throughout the day so that the day stays in the memories of lovers forever and ever. Today’s post is about a special day full of romanticism we would recommend to passionate lovers in Kathmandu.
Our journey of love begins on the eve of Valentine’s Day. Prior to the journey, place an online order for the gift to present it to your soul mate on the special day. We would recommend giftmandu.com. A bouquet of beautiful roses with a card and a small gift would definitely do. Choose wisely as per your partner’s preference and wish, if you really want to make him/her happy on this special day – but do not forget a bouquet of red roses.
On the eve of Valentine’s Day drive out of Kathmandu Valley to a peacefully located Pataleban Vineyard Resort. It is not that far from the valley but it caters peace and the location where it lies also offers the pleasure of wilderness. It is half an hour drive from Kathmandu Central on Prithivi Highway. As soon as the drive begins on serpentine downhill road from Thankot, a divergent road on the right takes you to Pataleban Vineyard Resort. Enjoy the beautiful sunset view from the resort and the panorama of Himalayan peaks including Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh & Annapurna among others will mesmerize both of you. Enjoy the dinner at the resort along with the finest wine.
Early morning wake up to surprise your valentine with the gift you ordered the earlier day. In the morning, holding each other’s hands, go for the hike in the woods around the resort. Release everything good or bad inside your heart to each other and take an opportunity to strengthen your love in the woods where nature witnesses. After the hike, eat your breakfast and then drive back to the valley. In the valley, we would suggest you to explore and luncheon at Garden of Dreams.
A neo classical historical garden in the heart of Kathmandu, Garden of Dreams was built by Kaiser Sumsher Rana in early 1920s. Kathmandu’s most peaceful and romantic oasis, the Garden of Dreams caters nature blended with historical and architectural flavor. Spend a quality time in the Garden and enjoy a light lunch at Kaiser Café within the Garden of Dreams.
After the lunch, go for short walk through Kathmandu’s oldest market Asan to Kathmandu Durbar Square, which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. During today’s exploration you could possibly imagine lots of couples at the site. Be one of them and enjoy heritage site blended well with love.
Romantic moments, we had plenty and now it is time to make some noise. Which place in town could be noisier than Purple Haze in the evening of Valentine’s Day – walk to Purple Haze to party from Kathmandu Durbar Square. Drink, dance and shout- you have the freedom. A live bar in Thamel famous for playing rock music also caters delicious cuisines of food, which definitely would entertain you until the party is over. We guess this plan for Valentine Day 2016 is perfect – romantic, wild & full of love.
