The second day would be a perfect day to visit Pashupatinath (a Hindu shrine where cremations are held on the river bank), followed by Boudhanath (where Tibetan pilgrims come to meditate with their prayer wheels). They are two of the biggest religious sites within Kathmandu as well as Nepal at large.
Kathmandu's ancient royal capital (known as Basantapur Durbar Square) and Swayambhunath (also known as Monkey Temple) are both Buddhist temples (which are quite popular in Kathmandu). We can make a great trip there and, in the late afternoon, visiting the town of Kirtipur would be ideal, which dates from the 9th century.
In the early morning, visit the Buddhist Posse at Patan, the ancient capital and city of golden roofs. You'll surely find the golden temple quite fascinating.

We will begin the day by driving to Bimalnagar, the largest cave in Asia, and discover a Newar authentic village before climbing Bandipur, an old city from the 19th century, to the top of a hill. There, visit the city's temples and take a panoramic view of the Himalayas.
Afterward, depart for Gorkha by car. There you will discover the ancient palace of Gorkha, which was built around three hundred years ago on a hilltop by the Shah Dynasty. There, view the stunning mountains from the cave of Guru Gorkhanath, a mausoleum built by King Ram Shah. The temple of Kali, built by King Ram Shah, is situated behind the palace.
Afterward, we drive to Kathmandu, a stunning sight that becomes even more spectacular as we gaze at the Himalayan peaks. Later, we visit Basantapur Durbar Square, the ancient royal capital of Kathmandu.
Start your day with a morning visit to the temple Dakshin Kali "the goddess of blood," one of the most important sites for animal sacrifices, where thousands of Nepali people sacrifice animals every Tuesday and Saturday. After that, we will drive to Pharping, one of the places where Padmasambhava's "Guru Rimpoche" was made to meditate in the caves. Guru Rimpoche was the founder of Tibetan Buddhism during the 6th century. In the afternoon, we drive through peasant villages of the valley and lush forests until we reach Nagarkot, with splendid views of the Himalayas.
Our early morning starts with a beautiful sunrise view of the surrounding mountains, forests, and woods. After sunrise, we drive back to Kathmandu. We also visit Bhaktapur en route. The old town of Bhaktapur is divided into 24 traditional localities. In addition to its name, 'city of devotees,' it has greatly influenced religion, culture, and Tantrism in Nepal. A visit to the stunning Bhaktapur durbar square is a highlight of the day for its unique structure and rich cultural heritage. We will spend the night in Kathmandu and finally conclude our tour.
