This 4 days tour covers visiting the heritage sites, different ancient palaces, elegant temples, exclusive monasteries, and stupas. We will be also covering other cities of Kathmandu - Patan, and Bhaktapur.

It is located in front of the old royal palace and surrounding this square, there are few temples which was massively destructed by the earthquake occurred in 25th April 2015. Some renovations are still going on to bring the beauty back to this locale. Our next site would be the - Boudhanath stupa. It is the highest stupa in South Asia. You will come across many Buddhists followers doing Kora (pilgrimage round) in this stupa.

Next would be the Pashupatinath temple which is the most sacred Hindu pilgrimage site located in the bank of Bagmati River. Thousands of people from around the globe visit this place every year. Our next point of interest is the Swayambhunath temple (also famous as monkey temple) lies in the heart of Kathmandu valley. Here you can find big statues of Lord Buddha and alongside, we will also visit some monasteries and temples.

Next, we are headed to visit Bhaktapur and Patan which are very ancient cities filled with lots of unique arts and architecture.
