Introduction

Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal, it roughly has a population of about 1.5 million people in the city itself. If you look at the whole of Kathmandu Valley the population comes more close to 5 million people. Kathmandu is shaped in a bowl and the city lays in Central Nepal at an elevation of approximately 1400 meters above the sea level. It is also the only place in Nepal with an international airport, so if you are planning to travel to Nepal, there is no other way than visiting this interesting cultural metropolis. This tour will take you in one day to the most important cultural heritage sites of Kathmandu:

Swayambhunath Stupa is the most ancient and enigmatic of all the holy shrines in Kathmandu valley. Its lofty white dome and littering golden spire are visible for many miles and from all sides of the valley. Historical records found on a stone inscription give evidence that the stupa was already an important Buddhist pilgrimage destination by the 5th century AD. Swayambhunath’s worshippers include Hindus, Vajrayana Buddhists of northern Nepal and Tibet, and the Newari Buddhists of central and southern Nepal. Each morning before dawn, hundreds of pilgrims will ascend the 365 steps that lead up the hill.

The next site to visit is the temple of Pashupatinath, the most important Hindu site in Nepal. The ancient temples and cremation steps are lined up along the edge of the holy Bagmati River. It is a very atmospheric place, with worshippers, mourners, Hindu holy people and tourists all come together there.

Bhaktapur is a Newa city located in the eastern corner of Kathmandu Valley. Bhaktapur literally translates to Place of Devotees, but is also known as Bhadgaun or Khwopa. It has one of the best-preserved palace courtyards and old city centers of Nepal, therefore Bhaktapur is listed as a World Heritage Site. Explore the Bhaktapur’s Art Museum, golden gate and it’s pond along with the fifty-window palace. On Pottery Square you can see how mud is converted into clay, and than is given its desired shape.

After the visit to Bhaktapur you will be taken back to Kathmandu city, where the tour will end.
