The Himalayas are filled with so many sacred places. The land here abounds with those spots where humanity is intersected with divinity. In the eastern part of Nepal at the confluence of the Sun Koshi and Dudh Khola rivers are three sacred caves to both the Hindu as well as the Buddhist people. It is said that these three caves represent the three eyes of Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction. It is in these sacred caves that Everest Tour Nepal Treks & Expedition can lead you on the path of enlightenment.

Legend has it that it was in these caves that Padmasambhava and his wife Mandarava freed themselves from the circle of rebirth and became immortal. This primordial couple are considered the founders of Tibetan Buddhism. The caves are called by the Tibetan Buddhist Maratika as it was here that full enlightenment was achieved.

To the Hindus, the cave is called Halesi. It is here that Shiva came face to face with the demon Bashmasur. Faced with the struggle, Shiva ran into the cave where he devised a ruse whereby he gave Bashmasur the ability to cause the death of anything he laid his hands on by touching their head. Shiva, being his clever self, tricked Bashmasur to lay his hand on his own head, thereby killing himself and setting world free of Bashmasur.

Everest Tour Nepal Treks & Expedition offers this wonderful opportunity to explore Maratika Caves. This is a five day experience here in the very heart of the holy Himalayas. It is far more than a sightseeing trip; it is an opportunity to enjoy the sacredness of the Himalayas that will impact your very life. You will experience a positive, life-changing force that will take you to new dimensions spiritually as you travel down the sacred path to enlightenment.

Fantastic Kathmandu Tour Experience
My partner and I had a fantastic tour experience during our 3 days in Kathmandu. Everything was taken care of from the airport pickup, centrally located hotel, driver and tour guide.
The tour was fantastic and took us to all the main sites we wanted to go to in Kathmandu, with additional flexibility to go to any places that weren’t in the original tour itinerary if you wanted.
We had a great experience with Everest Tour Nepal, everything went off without a hitch! We will definitely use them again if we find ourselves travelling in Nepal!

Nepal at its charming best
We visited Nepal in May 2022 and visited Kathmandu, Pokhara, Jomsom, Mukthinath, Bhaktapur and Chandragiri. All arrangements were fabulous and we were made to feel totally comfortable throughout our stay. All hotels were good, clean and customer friendly. In short, Everest Tour, our tour facilitator was outstanding in all aspects of hospitality. Kudos to them, particularly we will single out Mr Navaraj our tour guide.
