Kathmandu Tour is ideal for those who want to get a close glimpse of the country in a very short period of time. In 4 days we will guide you through the historical and cultural highlights of the Kathmandu Valley.
In the 15th century the Kathmandu Valley was composed of three separate medieval kingdoms - Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Each kingdom’s unique artistic expression of art and architecture is seen in its well preserved temples, palaces, brick-paved courtyards and quaint streets. UNESCO has recognized and restored many such places as World Heritage Sites. Our tour of the Kathmandu Valley is an interesting adventure of history and modernity.
Visitors are enchanted by the exquisite architecture of the temples and monasteries. Kathmandu being a unique mixture of different castes, cultures, and faiths, including Hinduism and Buddhism, has many age-old stone and wooden carvings which illustrate its religious traditions and festivals. The Kathmandu Valley remains a culturally diverse, historical and political center of Nepal. Kathmandu has also served as an important trading hub for the travelers and traders from Tibet and India.
