Brief information about the places we will visit during this tour:
Bhaktapur Bhaktapur is probably the most visited of the three historic cities of the Valley. It is a medieval town locked in centuries-old beliefs and traditions. The city is famous for its glorious architecture, sky-high temples, like the awesome Nyatapola Temple, Nepal’s tallest ancient structure, fine clay pottery and royal courtyards where devotees, still today celebrate their pre-historic festivals
Boudhanath Stupa is one of the largest stupa in the world and is the religious and cultural center of the broad community of Tibetan Refugees in Nepal. It is a holy place rich in Buddhist symbolism.
Pashupatinath is the most important Hindu Temple in Nepal and is set on the banks of the sacred river Bagmati. It is not only a religious destination, but a mix of art, culture, peace and devotion. Hundreds of rituals are performed every day in its premises, which are considered an open, living museum. In the age of mythology, Lord Shiva and his consort lived here by this tributary of the holy Ganges.
Patan- Once one of the independent kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, Patan is also the oldest existing Buddhist city in the Valley. Despite a close proximity to the capital Kathmandu, its ‘preserved’ ancestral culture distinguishes Patan as a unique place to experience. Patan is also known as Lalitpur, “City of Beauty”, and its unique Durbar Square is surrounded on all four sides by awe-inspiring temples and shrines.
