Kathmandu, the capital city of Kathmandu is known as the city of temples and inhabits world-famous temples like Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, and Boudhanath with grand architecture, and cultural artifacts. Kathmandu was the capital city of unified Nepal and dived into three different states, so it preserves different historical events and the complex, royal palaces and courtyards like Kathmandu Durbar Squares, Patan Durbar Square, and Bhaktapur Square.

You have some other options for the Nepal day Tour in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We are always happy to go with your interest and required services.

After breakfast, a knowledgeable tour guide drives a luxurious private car to your hotel to pick you up. We start off by going to Kathmandu Durbar Square. This UNESCO-listed world heritage site is located in the center of Kathmandu and provides a unique vista of historic structures, temples, and yards. This building was constructed using conventional architecture and timber carving since it served as a royal palace for Malla kings starting in the 15th century. Temples and statues line the area around the palace. Hanuman Dhoka and the Hanuman statue (Lord Rama’s monkey-like buddy), as well as the Taleju Temple, a huge statue of Kal Bhairav, Ganesh, and Mahadev.

Attraction of Kathmandu

Every temple has a pagoda-style construction. The extra attractions in Kathmandu Durbar Square include Basnatapur Dabali and Kumari Ghar, the home of a living virgin deity. We also like taking rickshaw rides around Indrachowk and Asan, two historic markets where we may buy regional goods. We proceed to Swayambhnat, also known as the Monkey Temple, after Durbar Square. According to legend, Syambhunath emerged on a mountaintop after Manjushree drained the water from Chovar. Shakyamuni meditated on the lotus flower while perched atop a hill, and people later adopted it as a symbol of religion.

The stunning view of the surrounding natural and artistic landscape is the main attraction of the Kathmandu City Tour. The temple town of Kathmandu looks out upon heaven on earth. The concavely shaped Kathmandu Valley is about 1400 meters above sea level. Kathmandu is famous to the world as the capital city of Nepal and for its extraordinary beauty. This city has developed into a hub for a large number of tourists (either foreigners or natives). Along with Kathmandu city, there are three other cities: Bhaktapur and Lalitpur. You won’t leave any of the cities you visit disappointed. Cities are amazing with the fusion of holy and ethnic traits.

On the Journey

During your Kathmandu City Tour, you must not miss Basantapur Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Buddha Stupa, or Swoyambhunath. These are just a few of the city’s other must-see attractions. These spectacular landmarks, which have been added to UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites can be seen during a city tour of Kathmandu. Your eyes won’t be able to handle how beautiful those places are. Viewing and appreciating the craftsmanship of historical and religious structures will never be enough for you.

Kathmandu City Tour doesn’t just hide the monumental structures. But also the warm hearts of its native people. Similarly, the pinnacle of intellect, a fusion of cultures and traditional foods, is the cuisine. All of these different places and landmarks are accessible to guests of the Kathmandu City Tour.

Day 01: Full Day Guided Kathmandu City Tour

After breakfast, a professional tour guide comes to your hotel to pick up you in a luxury private car. Firstly, we visit Kathmandu Durbar Square. Situated at the heart of Kathmandu, this UNESCO-listed world heritage site offers an exclusive view of ancient buildings, temples, and yards. This complex was a royal palace for Malla kings from the 15th century so it is built on traditional architecture and wooden carving. The palace is surrounded by temples and statues. Hanuman Dhoka and statue of Hanuman (the Monkeylike friend of Lord Rama), a giant statue of Kal Bhairav, Ganesh, Mahadev, and Taleju Temple. All temples are built in Pagoda style. Basnatapur Dabali and Kumari Ghar, where a living virgin goddess lives are the additional attraction of Kathmandu Durbar Square. We also enjoy riding on rickshaws around Indrachowk and Asan the ancient market places where we can buy local products. After Durbar Square, we move to Swayambhnat, which is also known as Monkey Temple. Syambhunath is believed to be a hilltop self-stood after Manjushree drained out water from Chovar. On the hilltop, Shakyamuni meditated on the lotus flower and later people made it a religious emblem. Surrounded by monkeys and Hindu and Buddhist disciples this place is occupied by Hindu Temples and Buddhist Stupa, Hindu temples, and other religious shrines. Luckily this place was not much affected by the 2015 earthquake except for some cracks. There is a museum that keeps ancient fossils and statutes. This hillock is a suitable place to enjoy the entire view of Kathmandu valley.

After lunch, we move to another historical Patan Durbar Square, which is located in the Lalitpur district. We cross the bridge over the Bagmati River and enter to Patan area. Patan Durbar square was also a royal palace and it is famous for the temple of Lord Krishna. The pagoda-style temple built in the 17th century embodies the grandiose stonework of an ancient craftsman. This place is crowded with Hindu Disciples during the auspicious birthday of Lord Krishna which falls in August. The Royal Palace with brick-paved courtyard, a stone pillar with a statue of king Yogendra Malla, Bhimsen Temple, Golden Temple, Taleju temple, golden window, Mulchowks, and Stone Tap with Museum is the main attraction of Patan Durbar Square. After Patan Durbar Square we move to Boudhanath Stupa, the largest Stupa in South Asia.

We admire the grand dome-style Stupa with praying flags waving in the air. This peaceful Stupa has a museum, Tibetan Language Learning Center, and a big praying wheel. This place depicts the Tibetan styles of Buddhism and practice and is jam-packed with tourists, pilgrims, nuns, and monks. Then we go to Pashupatinath where we observe grandiose temples situated on the bank of the holy Bagmati River. Pashupatinath is a holy temple for Hindu devotees which is crowded during Maha Shivaratri (late February or early March) and the Month of Shrawan( July) and Teej Festival(August). Though main non-Hindus are not allowed to enter the main temple we admire the great view of Pashupatinath temples especially its majestic structures decorated with woodcarving.
