A sightseeing around Kathmandu gives our visitors rich insights into the cultural and architectural history of the city. The Kathmandu valley is made up of three major cities of great historic and cultural interest; Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur. The valley is home to numerous religious sites like the Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath, Boudhanatha and Budhanilkantha temples among others. Sightseeing around Kathmandu is the perfect way to explore mountain, culutre and many more. These religious monuments are major pilgrimage sites for Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world. Sightseeing around Kathmandu will take you across all of these monuments.
The architectural inheritance of Kathmandu dates back to the 13th century. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization or UNESCO has listed seven monuments, the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan, the temples of Changu Narayan and Pashupatinath, and the stupas of Swayambhunath and Boudhanath are as World Heritage Sites. Our trip gives us plenty of time around all these heritage sites.
Besides the valley itself, this tour will also take you to Nagarkot, which is located only 32 km from Kathmandu. Nagarkot is a popular sightseeing spot renowned for the sunrise and sunset views it offers. From Nagarkot, the sun appears to be setting behind the distant Himalayas and when it rises again, it appears as if it is rising from behind the Himalayas.
