The exotic land of Nepal is getting popular among the golfers. During this trip, you will be playing in two different places, Gokarna Forest Golf Resort in Kathmandu and Himalayan Golf Course in Pokhara. Golfing in Kathmandu and Pokhara is more than just a leisure activity; it’s an opportunity to get closer to nature.

This 6,755 yard, par 72, 18 holes golf course was designed by Gleneagles Golf Developments of Scotland and considered one of the best in South-Asia.
Similarly, Himalayan Golf Course is situated 7 kilometers away from Pokhara city. It is considered one of the top 10 most unique golf courses in the world. This 6,900 yard, par 73, 18 holes golf course provides the scenic panoramic view of the Annapurna Himalayan range and a snowfed river is flowing right through the golf course.

Boudhanath: The 2500 years old Buddhist stupa in the Valley was built in 5th century. It has four pairs of eyes of Lord Buddha looking in four cardinal directions keeping an eternal watch over the people and their doings. You will find Buddhist pilgrims going round the stupa spinning the prayer wheels.
Pashupatinath Temple: Pashupatinath is one of the most sacred Hindu shrines in the world and is located 5 km east of the city center. The richly-ornamented pagoda houses the sacred linga, or phallic symbol, of Lord Shiva. Chronicles indicate the temple’s existence prior to 400 AD. Devotees can be seen taking ritual dips in the holy Bagmati River flowing beside the temple.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: This complex of palaces, courtyards and temples, built between the 12th and 18th centuries, used to be the seat of the ancient Malla kings of Kathmandu. An intriguing piece here is the 17th-century stone inscription set into the wall of the palace with writings in 15 languages. The Durbar Square is the social, religious and urban focal point of the city. There are also three museums inside the palace building.
Swayambhunath Stupa – The Monkey Temple: This stupa watches over the valley from the top of a hillock on its western side. The huge stupa is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Nepal and its establishment is linked to the creation of the Kathmandu Valley out of a primordial lake.
