One Day Kathmandu World Heritage Sightseeing Tour provides a fabulous opportunity to explore centuries-old temples, palaces, museums, and stupas with rich cultural and traditional insights. In just a single day, you would get to visit the culturally affluent capital city of Kathmandu especially around UNESCO world heritage sites Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple, and Boudhanath Stupa. If time remains, we can stroll around the streets for food, shopping, and more.
One Day Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour initiates as first we walk through the busy streets and head towards Kathmandu Durbar Square. This place was very much damaged by the April 25th earthquake but the tour lane has been separated and you can still view the beauty that was badly shaken by a strong tremor. Nearby Kasthamandap and few temples are rubble but the home of Living Goddess Kumari is still intact and you can visit the place. Next, after a short drive, we arrive at Swayambhunath Stupa, another world heritage site partially damaged by the earthquake. However the stupa is not damaged, you can visit through the safe tour lane and have panoramic views of the city with some insights into Buddhism while visiting the nearby monastery and Buddha Park. Then we visit Pashupatinath Temple, the holiest pilgrimage site of Lord Shiva. This pilgrimage site allows us to view cremation rituals as well as insight into Hindu rituals, cultures, and traditions. Finally, we drive to the nearby Boudhanath stupa, believed to be the largest in Asia. The lighting ritual at dusk is spectacular and we visit cultural and architecturally beautiful monasteries over there at Boudhanath area.
In this way our One Day Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour ends and we drive back to the office of Nepal Mountain Trekkers at Thamel or we drop off at your hotel.
