Trip Itinerary:

  • Day 1 - Kathmandu

    Full day sightseeing of Bhaktapur, Changunarayan, and Patan.
    Bhaktapur
    Sightseeing

    Bhaktapur, a history-soaked medieval town, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded in the 9th century and shaped like a conch shell, the city boasts an array of temples overlooked by the Palace with its fifty-five windows built by King Bhupatindra Malla. It is the best preserved of the three original cities of Kathmandu Valley, the other two being Kathmandu and Patan.

    Changu Narayan
    Sightseeing

    Changunarayan - Situated at the end of the long road which runs well into the valley, it is said to have been built in 323AD by King Hari Dutta Varma.The temple is richly decorated with sculptures and carvings. It is said to be the oldest temple in the valley.

    Patan
    Sightseeing

    Patan is a small city bordering Nepal's capital, Kathmandu. The highlight of the city is its dense Durbar square, a collection of temples concentrated in a tiny area. The entire east side of the Darbar square is dominated by the ancient royal palace complex. Damaged by war and particularly by the earthquake of 1934, it has been carefully reconstructed by the Nepalese government. The ancient city of Patan, lying 5 km southeast of Kathmandu, is known as the city of fine arts. The city is full of Hindu temples and Buddhist monuments. The diversity of the medieval culture that allowed both Hinduism and Buddhism to flourish has left a rich legacy of impressive sightseeing in this city for today's visitors.
