Day 03: Transfer from Kathmandu to Nagarkot

Once again, get up early and wander the streets and enjoy the quietness, witness the locals performing their daily worship at temples and shrines. Then, take a pre-breakfast walk from Thamel to Indra Chowk. After that, head to Pashupatinath, the holiest Hindu site in Nepal where contains a collection of temples dedicated to Shiva, as well as the stunning view of the riverside ghats on the Bagmati.
Later, after about 2-hour drive, you will reach to Nagarkot. In the town, do not miss a chance to admire the superb view of the sunrise and sunset at all cost; thus, an overnight stay is the best choice. You can stay in hotels; however in Nagarkot, they are quite busy, so the Nagarkot Farmhouse, set in the spacious garden away from the hustle will be our choice for you.
However, if you want to get away from the crowd (still in the same area as Nagarkot), you will have two destinations, instead: Dhulikhel and Namobuddha.
Dhulikhel, a modern town; however, it still retains a well-preserved Newari core of buildings and is home to the Dwarika’s Dhulikhel, one of the finest hotels in Nepal, along with plenty of other cheaper options.
Or you can come to Namobuddha, one of the holiest Tibetan Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal, where you can see the golden-roofed monastery sitting at the end of a ridgeline. The town is home to the Namobuddha Resort where you can enjoy meals cooked from its organic garden.

Day 04: Nagarkot to Bhaktapur

We hope you happily enjoyed the sunrise and sunset view in Nagarkot.
Having breakfast, then there will be two options for you to choose as you can drive to Bhaktapur (roughly 1 hour) or you can hike there, instead. If you enjoy the hike, it takes you 4 hours to walk downhill and pass through the temple, Changu Narayan, which is recognized by UNESCO as the World Heritage site in Nepal.
If you drive to Bhaktapur, absolutely you will have more time to stroll around Newari city in the afternoon.
Overnight at the hotel.

Day 5: Tour Bhaktapur, Tour Patan

It would be a chance to explore Bhaktapur this morning if you got into the hike on the previous day. It is said that the town was dramatically damaged by the earthquake in 2015; however, most of the impressive religious buildings, especially the tallest temples in Kathmandu, the five-story Nyatapola Temples have still remained today.
Later, head to Patan, about 1-hour drive. On reaching Patan, visit Durbar Square where converges lots of temples and palaces buildings. In one wing of the palace, you will see the Patan Museum which constructed with the aid of Austria, is a showcase of the religious arts and architecture of Kathmandu. Along with Durbar Square, there are several well-worth places to visit like Hiranya Varna Mahabihar or Golden Temple even though it is neither made of gold (its golden color comes from brass) nor a temple (it is a monastery).
You can buy your own favorite souvenirs in Patan as it is a great place to do this activity where you can find traditional Newari craftsmen; hence find yourself a good shop and own Buddhist thangka paintings, metal statues, and jewelry, and brass as well as copper cookware.
Overnight at the guesthouse.
