Outline Itinerary

Tourists visiting Nepal are bound to spend more than a few days in Kathmandu. They can enjoy various sightseeing attractions as a Kathmandu valley day tour. Although there are many choices, we recommend the following heritage sites/ attractions for a day sightseeing tour:

Swayambunath Stupa: Swayambunath Stupa is Kathmandu's most important Buddhist shrine. The sleepy, all-seeing Buddha's eyes that stare out from the top of this hemispherical shrine have become the quintessential symbol of Nepal. The pilgrim's route to the Swayambunath Stupa is a steep stone staircase of more than 300 steps, often claimed as 365.

Patan Durbar Square: Patan is also known as the paradise of fine arts. The city lies only 5 km from Kathmandu. It is a city of Buddhist monuments, Hindu temples and fine wood carvings. Lalitpur is the other name of this city which means “the city of beauty”.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: This is a durbar of history and arts. One can see artistic monuments, find the house of the living goddess Kumari, learn about the Kal-Bhairam temple, red monkey god, and hundreds of erotic wood carvings.  The Kastmandap rest house located within the durbar square is said to have been built from a single tree. It is because of this house that Kathmandu valley (Valley of the Gods) got its name.

Note: This is just our suggestion and you can choose to visit other heritage sites like: Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple replacing one of the above attractions. The cost would be the same.
