What you can expect

After enjoying a hearty breakfast, you will be picked up from the hotel and taken for a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu city. Kathmandu has three Durbar squares and one of them is Kathmandu Durbar Square. It is undoubtedly the most spectacular legacy of Kathmandu’s traditional architecture and is counted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. The square’s stunning architecture is inspired by the Newari style of architecture and is constructed in the shape of a multi-tiered Pagoda. It consists of many old palaces, ancient temples, and pavilions that offer a mystical feeling. While you wander through this architectural marvel, don’t miss out on its major attraction called the “Kumari Chowk”, which is the abode of the living goddess ‘Raj Kumari’ - a human reincarnation of Holy Deity Durga. In the ancient era, the Kathmandu Durbar Square was the place where the Kings were crowned and from where they ruled the city. This is why; it is considered to be the traditional heart of Kathmandu.

We will then visit Swayambhunath, located on a hillock 3 km west of Kathmandu. It is an important holy site of Buddhists in Nepal dating back to 5th century A.D. It is believed that this Stupa evolved when the valley was born out of a lake 2,000 years ago. This enigmatic Stupa is a treat to eyes as it is adorned with vibrant prayer flags, a pair of big eyes on all its sides symbolic of “God's all-seeing” perspective and it hosts the largest image of the Sakyamuni Buddha in Nepal sits on a pedestal on its western boundary. This glory of the site itself has stood as a hallmark of faith and harmony for centuries.

Next, we will proceed to the city of Patan, only 15 minutes’ drive from Kathmandu. It is also known as ‘Lalitpur’ meaning the City of Beauty. Even after a massive earthquake in 2015, tourists continue to visit this city for the spectacular Durbar Square and also buy traditional items as souvenirs. The Patan Durbar Square hosts popular temples, pagoda, a museum and much more. One of the major attractions of this square is the Krishna Mandir that represents the sheer influence of Indian architecture. This three-tiered temple is the earliest stone temple in Nepal consisting of stone-crafted images of Hindu gods.

After a visit to the city of Patan, you will be dropped off at the hotel. Rest of the day at leisure.
