Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing

01 days

Overview

The Kathmandu Valley includes the city and religious and world heritage sites around Kathmandu.  In ancient times, the area was a huge lake, and the local legend is that Manju Shree arrived, removed all the water, and made a beautiful city in a beautiful setting. The city, itself, is exhilarating, fascinating, and unforgettable, and the sightseeing tour in the Kathmandu Valley begins with a tour of the capital city, Kathmandu.  The main attractions are Swayambunath (the Monkey Temple), Bouddhanath Buddhist, Hindu temples (Pashupatinath, Chagunaraya), and Durbar Square.  We will then move on to Bhaktapur, which is in close proximity to Kathmandu.  Within this city is the older part, which was heavily damaged during the 2015 earthquake.  However, there is much reconstruction occurring, and it still holds the charm, quaintness, and fascination visitors experienced pre 2015.  Sites to visit here include the Palace of 55 Windows, the National Art Gallery, the Golden Gate, the Nayatapole Temple, and Durbar Square. We will also visit Durbar Square in Patan.  The final destination will be Daksinkali, which is an open shrine dedicated to a ferocious Hindu female deity.  There will be walking, but only for short distances.  Wandering through the sites will definitely be highlights of the tour.  Please contact Shiva Excursions to get the best price for this interesting and culturally rich tour.

    I met Arjun in 2000 when I travelled through Nepal together with my husband. By that time Arjun was working as a trekking and/or porter-guide in Pokhara. He guided us through the Annapurna Mountains and even carried our backpack for six days.  We enjoyed our hike with him very much!…
