Tour Details
 

The UNESCO World Heritage Tour includes visits to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as many other culturally significant sites in the Kathmandu Valley. Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, Swayambhunath (also known as the Monkey Temple), Kathmandu Durbar Square, Changunarayan Temple, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Patan Durbar Square.

Kathmandu houses thousands of temples, stupas, monasteries, pagodas, and monuments. As a result, Kathmandu has been dubbed the “City of Temples” and is well-known throughout the world. The valley is divided into three ancient cities: Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur. Each city has its own UNESCO World Heritage-listed Durbar Square, which features artistic woodwork, brick-paved courtyards, beautiful palaces, and temples. Aside from these cities, many towns and villages have preserved the temples and monuments that define their culture and religion over the centuries.

This 5-day UNESCO World Heritage Tour around the valley is designed to meet the needs of those interested in learning more about Nepalese culture. During the tour, participants can explore and experience the spiritual tranquility surrounding these sites.

Day 2Sightseeing in Kathmandu

Our tour guide and private vehicle will be waiting to pick you up. You will begin by visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site Kathmandu Durbar Square, where you can see typical wood-carved temples and buildings reflecting the ancient Kathmandu city, and then proceed to Swayambhunath, the Monkey Temple, where you can see religious harmony and tolerance between the Buddhist and Hindu religions, as well as enjoy a panoramic view of Kathmandu city and the Himalaya ranges.

Following that, you will visit the Pashupatinath Temple, which is one of Southeast Asia’s largest Hindu pilgrimage sites. Explore the surroundings and observe the ritual body cremation ceremony process of the Hindus at the bank of the holy Bagmati river.

Then, explore the surroundings of Guweyswori Temple, another pilgrimage site near Pashupatinath Temple, before continuing on to Boudhanath Stupa, another UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 3Visit Patan, Khokana, Bungmati and Drive to Nagarkot (3 hours)

In the morning, you will travel to Patan, an ancient city. Patan is also known as “The City of Fine Arts” because of its rich culture and arts, and the towns are filled with ancient temples and shrines. You will also visit the Krishna Temple and Patan Durbar Square, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Later, visit the Patan Museum to learn more about Patan’s history and the kings who ruled it. Then, visit the Golden Temple, which is popular among both Hindus and Buddhists, as well as the Banglamukhi Temple. Following that, you’ll travel to Khokana village, which dates back to the medieval period and is well-known for its mustard-oil seed industries and cultural heritage.

Bungmati lies just next to the village of Khokana, with a beautiful temple in the village square and medieval houses hanging onions and red chilies from their windows. Later, we head towards our overnight location, Nagarkot, which is about 35 kilometers east of Kathmandu. Nagarkot is a famous viewpoint, and one can see the panoramic view of the Himalayas ranging from Dhaulagiri in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east, including Mt. Everest (with a binocular, you can have a good view of it). Enjoy the sunset and return to the hotel.

Accommodation: an overnight stay at the Hotel Country Villa or a similar one.

Day 4Explore Bhaktapur and Drive back to Kathmandu (2-3 hours)

The architecture in Bhaktapur will astound you, as the city has managed to preserve its original form to this day.

You can see old wood-carved buildings all over Bhaktapur before heading to Bhaktapur Durbar Square, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the surrounding area before visiting the Nyatapola Temple, one of Nepal’s largest temples. After your sightseeing, return to Kathmandu, check into your hotel, and rest before exploring downtown Thamel to buy souvenirs or simply relax at a pub.
