Today, after breakfast, drive back to Kathmandu. Upon arrival in Kathmandu, you will be transferred to your hotel. You can spend the evening leisurely; perhaps catch up on some last minute shopping.
Evening free time for shopping in the local tourist market -Thamel or just relax at the Hotel.
Thamel is the epi-center for shopping in Kathmandu. It can be a stressful place because of the street vendors, rickshaw drivers and high speed motorbikes. But there is no question that it is jam- packed with shops, selling everything from ready-to-wear Western clothes, embroider T-shirts, Tibetan carpets, clothing, Thangkas (Buddhist paintings) and curios (“singing bowls” etc), Pashmina shawls, Nepali souvenirs like khukuris (Gurkha’s traditional knife) and madals (drums), jewellery, paper products (the local lokta plant is used to make a fine & unique paper – a nice and practical souvenir or gift), colorful masks and puppets, metalwork & woodcarvings
Dinner at local restaurant with cultural program:
If you are traveling to any country, you would not go back without trying its national food. "typical Nepali Bhojan ", the name ‘Bhojan’ directly interpreted in English means food, but the restaurant is about more than just a house of food.
The house, the setting, is also special. It dates back over 150 years. A renovated 4 storey building, it originally belonged to the royal priest of the king of Nepal.
Taste authentic organic Nepalese food. Enjoy simultaneously local folk dances and songs. Dining at typical Nepali restaurant, meaning House of Food, is a unique experience. Fascinating Nepalese cultural décor and artifacts bring past and present alive. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day.
Overnight at Kathmandu.
