Hindu Pilgrimage Tour – 9 Days

Trip Overview

Hindu Pilgrimage Tour is for those people who want to purify their soul in the sacred Hindu sites located in Nepal. The tour penetrates through the mist of time, and drench you in the pure and pristine history of Hinduism in the Himalayan nation. Though it is a religious tour, you will enjoy panoramic mountain views, gushing river, emerald hills and experience unique mountain terrain during this tour.

The history of Nepal has been rooted in the history of Hinduism. Every year thousands of Hindus throng to Nepal to visit the sacred and quaint temples. They visit the different Hindu pilgrimage sites in Nepal to unburden and uplift their soul.

We start this tour by visiting Pashupatinath located in Kathmandu on the bnka of holy Bagmati River and end it by visiting Janaki Temple and observing Mithila culture in Janakpur. Pashupatinath is a religious destination for Hindus worldwide. It celebrates the Hindu God- Lord Shiva. Built around in 753 A.D., it has become a significant holy site for Hindus all over the world. Muktinath, another famous temple you will be visiting, is a pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. The temple stands at the elevation of 3710 meters, at the foot of Thorong La, a mountain pass in the Mustang district of Nepal. Besides, you will cover Manakamana Temple including other famous Hindu shrines in Nepal. Hinduism is entrenched in the majority Nepalese peoples’ psyche.

Since this is a holy tour, we have developed this itinerary considering the needs of the people of all age group. Therefore, this can be a perfect family tour or a tour of a religious group.
