Experience the beauty of Nepal's capital city, Kathmandu, with our Kathmandu City Tour. With its stunning natural and artistic surroundings, the city's temples offer a glimpse of paradise on earth. Kathmandu Valley is located 1,400 meters above sea level in a concave shape, and it is a convergence point for numerous tourists from all around the world. Kathmandu City, along with Bhaktapur and Lalitpur, boasts an astounding blend of ethnic and sacred traits that will leave you enchanted.

During the Kathmandu City Tour, you cannot miss some of the high spots of Kathmandu, including Basantapur Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Buddha Stupa, and Swoyambhunath, all of which are magnificent monuments that have been listed as world heritage sites by UNESCO. You will be mesmerized by the refinement of historical and religious monuments, and your eyes will not get enough of the beauty of these places.

Basantapur Durbar Square is the core of Kathmandu Valley, and its splendid monuments will leave you in awe. There are numerous monuments with historic and ethnic beliefs inside the Durbar Square, including Taleju Temple, Hanuman Dhoka, Kumari Chowk, and the bell. A gigantic sculpture of Kal Bhairav with a terrifying look and six arms has become an attractive portion. In Patan Durbar Square, Krishna Mandir and Patan Durbar are situated on the periphery of the square, and this is one of the most visited localities in town. The city is famous for its Newari culture and Jatra, and you can enjoy lip-smacking traditional Newari cuisines like Choila, Bara, Yomari, Samaya Baji, egg verities, and many more.

Pashupatinath Temple stands almost 6 km east of Kathmandu, and it is mostly visited as a religious site by Hindus. The temple alongside the Bagmati River is a flawless view, and the evening Aarati after visiting Pashupati is a must-do. Bouddhanath Stupa is one of the most imperative and unique structure stupas in the world, and it is the second most divine monastery of Buddhists after Swayambhunath. Though this is a Buddhist monument, there is no religious boundary for visitors. The picture-perfect eyes in the Stupa also known as ‘wisdom eyes’ indicate the omniscience of Lord Buddha.

Finally, Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple, is the oldest and most visited stupa by Buddhist monks from all over the world. You can go up to the stupa through the main entrance gate or take the stairs, and there are 365 stairs that will surely lead you to spiritual enlightenment with the view of the Sleeping Buddha statue. From the front side of the Stupa, you can catch the outlook of Kathmandu city.
