In the morning, around 9:30 am you will be picked you up by our guide from your hotel and proceed for a full day trip in Kathmandu Valley.

The trip will start with a visit to Katmandu Durbar square, (UNESCO World Heritage Site) which is one of the major attractions in Katmandu Valley. Kathmandu Durbar Square is the historic place that was also a politically important site until recently. The Kings of Nepal were crowned and their coronation ceremony was solemnized in this durbar square. The Durbar Square, with its old temples and palaces, epitomizes the religious and cultural life of the people. The temples, monuments, and palaces are believed to have been built by the Malla kings of the Medieval Nepal.

Another important site to visit here is the Kumari Ghar (The Living Goddess House). At the West end of the square, is a beautiful house full of woodcarving of different God and Goddesses. This Palace is three storied and in this palace, lives the very famous living Goddess Kumari. Both Hindus and Buddhists equally venerate her. For Hindus she is the reincarnation of Hindu Goddess Kali. She is equally worshiped by Buddhists because she is chosen from Buddhist family. This shows the harmony between Buddhist and Hindus in Nepal. If you are lucky you can have a sight of Living goddess Kumari from the window of the Kumari house.

Next stop is visit to the 2000 years old Swoyambhunath Stupa, (UNESCO World Heritage Site) also known as "Monkey temple” The temple charms with its great dazzling Stupa, while at the same time, offering a view of Kathmandu city. The two-thousand years-old Stupa is the most profound expression of Buddhist symbolism in Nepal. There’s evidence to believe the hill was used for animist rites even before Buddhism arrived in the valley two thousand years ago. 

Lastly you will drive to visit Pashupatinath Temple (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Pashupatinath is one of the holiest pilgrimage destinations for all the Hindus of the world. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, one of the trinity and the guardian (patron) deity of Nepal. This is one of the oldest temples, situated on the banks of the Holy Bagmati River. It is double – roofed golden temple with four triple silver doorways. Pashupatinath covers an area of 281 hectares, which is one of the biggest temple complexes in Nepal. Although Pashupatinath Temple was only built in the fifth century and later renovated by Malla kings, the holy site is said to have existed from the beginning of the millennium.

After the completion of the tour, you will be dropped to your hotel.
