A culturally and naturally diverse country, Nepal is home to 10 UNESCO World Heritage Sites with seven of them being inside Kathmandu Valley and three of them in different parts of the country. World Heritage Sites Tour is a journey to eight of the ten heritages which hold rich history and signify the distinct culture of Nepal. World Heritage Sites Tour gives a quick glimpse of Hinduism and Buddhism in Kathmandu and Lumbini along with a taste of historical architecture and culture of the Kathmandu Valley.
The tour starts with the visit to Kathmandu Durbar Square which is one of the three durbars (Royal Palace) squares in Kathmandu Valley that showcase Nepalese art and architecture. The buildings and designs represent Malla kings who ruled over Nepal from 12th to 18th century. After that, you head to Swayambhunath which is considered as a holy Buddhist site. Also known as the Monkey Temple, Swayambhunath lies on the top of a hill facing towards Kathmandu Valley. You also visit Patan Durbar Square; Krishna Mandir is one of the most important parts of the square which was built in 1637 by the then King Siddhinarsingh Malla. Then you drive to Nagarkot to witness the beautiful sunrise from the sunrise viewpoint on top of a hill, and after returning back to the valley you take a tour of Bhaktapur Durbar square. Golden Gate and The Palace of Fifty-five Windows are the central attractions inside the durbar. The tour then moves towards Changunarayan Temple which is recognized as the most ancient temple as it is the inscription of Mandev, the first emperor of Nepal. This temple is believed to have been built during the 3rd century. Then in the afternoon, you visit Pashupatinath temple and Boudhanath temple.
