Detailed Itinenary

The 1-day city tour itinerary is as follows: 

After having breakfast, our guide will meet you in the Hotel. You will be clarified about the spots you should visit that day. You will board a vehicle from Hike on Trek and will drive for the Kathmandu City Tour. The spots you will visit are:

Boudhanath: Boudhanath, one of the biggest stupas in South Asia is a point of convergence of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. This white hill looms thirty-six meters overhead. This stupa is situated on the antiquated exchange course to Tibet where Tibetan dealers used to rest and offer supplications. At the point when outcasts entered Nepal from Tibet during the 1950s, a considerable lot of them choose to live around Boudhanath. They built up numerous gompas, and the “Little Tibet” of Nepal was conceived. This “Little Tibet” is as yet the best spot in the Valley to watch the Tibetan way of life. Priests stroll in maroon robes. Tibetans stroll with supplication wheels in their grasp, and the ceremonies of surrender are displayed to Buddha.

Swyambhunath: Swyambhunath is situated on a little peak. This is a hallowed spot that contains numerous stupas and sanctuaries where both Hindu and Buddhists go for love. As indicated by legends, the historical backdrop of Kathmandu Valley starts from Swyambhunath itself. In times strange by history, Bodhisattva Manjushree ran over a lovely lake amid his movement. He saw a lotus that radiated splendid light at the lake’s inside, so he cut a canyon in a southern slope and depleted the waters to adore the lotus. Men settled on the bed of the lake and considered it the Kathmandu Valley. From that point on, the ridge of the self-existent Lord has been a heavenly spot for both Hindu and Buddhists.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: Kathmandu Durbar Square contains uncountable landmarks. The place of the Living Goddess (Kumari Guar), the fierce Kal Bhairab, the red monkey god, and many suggestive carvings are a couple of instances of the sights in the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The structures here are the best accomplishments of the Malla administration, and they came about because of the incredible contention between the three royal residences of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. The Valley was separated among the offspring of Yaksha Malla. For guests today, and for the Nepalese, it was fortunate that they, and later their offspring’s, started imaginative fighting attempting to exceed each other in magnificent developments. Rulers replicated everything their neighbors worked in a significantly more excellent style.

Pashupatinath: Pashupatinath sanctuary is the holiest Hindu journey goal in Nepal. The encompassing of Pashupatinath contains statues, holy places, and sanctuaries committed to various divinities. A sanctuary committed to Shiva existed at this site in AD 879. Be that as it may, the present sanctuary was worked by King Bhupatindra Malla in 1697. A gold-plated rooftop, silver entryways, and woodcarvings of the best quality enliven the pagoda development. Guheswari Temple, reestablished in AD 1653, speaks to the female “drive”. It is committed to Sati Devi, Shiva’s first spouse, who surrendered her life in the blazes of her dad’s flame custom. This sanctuary is arranged in the bank of Bagmati stream where Hindu individuals incinerate dead bodies.
