After a restful night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, our day begins with a visit to Swayambhunath, popularly known as the Monkey Temple. "Swayambhu" translates to "self-created," and the legend tells of this hill suddenly emerging from a vast lake that once covered the Kathmandu Valley.

From Swayambhunath, we proceed to Kathmandu Durbar Square, a UNESCO-listed cultural World Heritage site. This square is a captivating ensemble of medieval temples, palaces, courtyards, and streets, with origins dating back to the 12th and 18th centuries. Within its confines, we'll discover treasures such as the Hanumandhoka Palace Museum, Taleju Temple, Kumari Ghar (House of the Living Goddess), Kasthamandap, and numerous other structures as ancient as the city itself.

Our journey continues with a visit to the famous Boudhanath Stupa, said to be the largest stupa in the world and a significant hub of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu. The stupa's design mirrors a colossal mandala, symbolizing the Buddhist cosmos.

Afterward, we make our way to Pashupatinath Temple, a sacred Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. It holds the distinction of being Nepal's holiest Hindu temple.

Returning to our hotel, we have the opportunity to refresh, perhaps indulge in some shopping, and enjoy an early supper. Following our eventful day, most likely, we'll retire to bed. Enjoy your breakfast and this exciting exploration of Kathmandu's cultural wonders.

Today, we embark on a journey from Kathmandu to Dhap early in the morning, a drive that will take approximately 7 hours.

Beginning our day with a hearty breakfast, we embark on a trek to Jhabre from our starting point. The trail ahead offers mostly level terrain, occasionally graced with gentle slopes. Throughout this journey, our senses are treated to captivating vistas of picturesque villages on either side, as well as panoramic glimpses of the majestic Himalayas, with the iconic Mount Everest in the distance.

Our path follows a well-maintained road, though it's worth noting that this road remains unpaved. However, this doesn't detract from the overall trekking experience. The road's condition ensures a comfortable journey, and the natural beauty of the surroundings remains as awe-inspiring as ever.

Continuing forward, the landscapes around us present a delightful medley of scenes. Some segments of the trail lead us through enchanting jungles, where the sounds of nature create a tranquil symphony as our footsteps echo softly.
