overview

An enjoyable guided tour around Kathmandu city will provide you with an opportunity to learn about the history, culture, and traditions better with visits to local streets of Kathmandu and few world heritage sites.  We shall receive you at the hotel you are staying at early in the morning and start the tour from the streets of Ason and then head to Kathmandu Durbar Square. Visiting this place will help you know about the history and culture of Nepal in the medieval era.

We will show the significant tourist spots around Kathmandu as we move on to explore the Kasthamandap temple from Kathmandu Durbar Square; the literal meaning of Kasthamandap is a structure made of wood where the Kasthamandap temple was actually built with the wood from a single tree. Unfortunately, the temple’s structure dismantles due to the massive earthquake that took place in 2015, but you can still visit its ruins. Then, we move forward to the temple of the living goddess “Kumari”. This young Goddess lives in this temple, and many people come to worship her. 

Afterwards, we move to the Swayambhunath Temple, which is famous as “The Monkey Temple of Kathmandu. Swayambhunath is situated on the top of a hill and revered as an essential shrine of Nepal by both Hindus and Buddhists. You can enjoy the view of many parts of the Kathmandu valley and the green hills surrounding Kathmandu. If the weather is good and the sky is clear, you can see panoramic Mountain View from the top. 

After a hearty lunch and some rest, we move to the northern part of the city to see the Pashupatinath temple in the afternoon. This temple is very significant for Hindus and is considered an essential spot for the Hindu pilgrims.  While the non-Hindus are not allowed to get inside the main temple, there is still a lot to see and explore in the Pashupatinath area given a large number of shrines and monuments with more than five hundred eighteen temples in the area. 

Within a short distance from Pashupatinath, we can reach to the Boudhanath Stupa, which is the biggest stupa in Nepal and list under the UNESCO world heritage list. Many Buddhist come to Nepal to visit Boudhanath. People also come to study and explore the impressive architecture. You can taste the Tibetan tea while observing the whole area from here. Also, there are several good souvenir shops for you to buy things for your friends and family back home.

Another world heritage site, you will get to see is Patan Durbar Square, which offers you a chance to observe beautiful palace structures, fine courtyards, and artistic temples. Also, you can study the cultural traditions, religious items and historical structures at the Patan Museum.
