Sightseeing tour of Kathmandu Valley refers to exploration of one of the oldest human habitats in world, Cultural Kathmandu Valley
Kathmandu, the Nepalese capital, like a bouquet of different flowers manifests the cultural and historic diversity of beautiful Nepal. This 5 days tour in Kathmandu is a total package which will let you experience all aspects of Kathmandu and equally fascinating towns Patan and Bhaktapur in the neighborhood. This tour features the visit to the Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Boudha Nath Stupa, Pashupati Nath Temple, and Changu Narayan Temple, which are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites, making Kathmandu the densest concentration of Heritage Sites. Kathmandu often described as a medieval time valley is the country's biggest and most cosmopolitan city, home to dozens of ethnic groups and living goddess Kumari.
Not only Nepal has many gods, goddess, deities, Bodhisattvas and manifestations, which are worshipped in the form of statues, images, paintings and symbols, but it also has a real living goddess, Kumari. The Kumari Devi is a young girl who lives in the building known as the Kumari Ghar, right beside Kathmandu's Durbar Square. Moreover, to stroll around the oldest streets of Kathmandu, which includes Asan is also the prime highlight of the tour.
The best thing about the tour after the powerful quake of 2015 is that travelers get opportunities to sight the artisans of the valley involved in rebuilding the grounded monuments and damaged ancient arts.
