The Kathmandu tour shows you a distinctive side of Kathmandu Valley. Besides the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu city, there are a lot of other things that this city had engraved in it. It is the home of hundreds of heritage sites, the Newa settlement, and their culture, tradition, and beliefs.
As mentioned earlier, Kathmandu Valley is the home of heritage Sites. This small area consists of 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites within its perimeter. It includes three ancient cities from the Medival period. The royal palace of Basantapur (Kathmandu), Bhaktapur, and Patan(Lalitpur). Besides them, there are the Pashupatinath temple and Changunarayan temple. Both of these temples are counted among the most prestigious temples in Nepal. And, then, there are two enormous stupas i.e., Swyambhunath, and Bouddhanath.
The Kathmandu tour not only offers these heritage sites for sightseeing. But it also gives you a taste of the rich culture of the Newa people. The city will take you back to the time of the centuries-old Malla era through architectural marvels.
You can also witness the harmony between Buddhism and Hinduism in the city. During your visit, you can notice that people are praying homage to both religious sites with the same beliefs. Thus, sightseeing in Kathmandu is a perfect way of getting in touch with the rich Nepalese history and culture.
You will be visiting all these destinations in Kathmandu. But it is impossible to explore within a day. Thus, we would be visiting the three most close heritage sites of Kathmandu on the first day of the tour. That includes Patan Durbar Square, Kathmandu Durbar Square, and Swyambhunath.
The next day, you will visit Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Changu Narayan Temple. After that, you will visit Baudhhanath and then Pashupatinath temple.
