Kathmandu City Tour

Our package for the Kathmandu City Tour contains several of the major places in one day that is mentioned on UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Popular Day Trips in Nepal is Nepal's main day travel scheduler. Not only are we here just to bring you the stuff written in all travel guide books, but we're going further and sharing in-depth tales of these heritage sites, and new unforgettable experiences. The trip is led by our qualified tour guides, who give visitors to four World Heritage Sites identified by UNESCO. The sites include Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa.

Pashupatinath Temple

Since 1979, Pashupatinath Temple has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is situated about 5 km (3 miles) from the center of town and not too far from the airport. Admission charge is 1000 rupees. From anywhere in Kathmandu, Nepal, you can reach the temple by taxi. Pashupatinath Temple is a vast network of separate temple annexes dating back to the 5th century. Devoted to Lord Shiva, this is the greatest sacred grove in all of Nepal and the fourth largest in Asia for those committed to following Shiva's teachings. The last rites of Hindus are mostly administered along the river banks, with cremations occurring by the waterfront. Such incinerations happen nonstop every day. Both religious or not, the sanctuary of Pashupatinath is an intriguing spot to visit for finding out about the Hindu point of view on life and rebirth. Only Hindus can join the main temple but the rest of the complex is open to all. It is said that those embalmed at Pashupatinath will return as human beings in the next life, no matter what sins they performed during their lives. As such, you are likely to meet elderly people at the temple living their last days in great anticipation of the next life.

Boudhanath Stupa

Boudha lies about 7 kilometers (4.5 miles) from the famous tourist place Thamel. Various hotels and cafes are located in the city, rendering this a nice place to stay .... and much calmer than Thamel. Boudhanath Stupa's entrance fee is for 400 rupees. You could get from anywhere else in Kathmandu easily by taxi here. There are many stories beyond Boudhanath Stupa's origin, commonly known as "Boudha" The stupa was originally designed in the early 7th century, one-story reports. Another tale links with the building of Tibetan King Trisong Detsen in the mid to late 8th century. The tower is also known locally as "Chorten Chenpo" which means "Great Stupa." Certainly among the most interesting Buddhist sites in the world, there are many Buddhist tourists and local devotees who can normally pay their respects and perform rituals here.

Swaymambhunath Temple

On a clear day in Kathmandu, Nepal, the view from Monkey Temple offers the vast city a great breathtaking view. A further UNESCO World Heritage Site is Swayambhunath. Admission costs 200 rupees. Plan a half-day spent here. "The Monkey Temple," the Swayambhunath temple in Kathmandu, is a religious and historical observation, a routine exercise, and a nature adventure that has all bundled into one! Up a hill, tourists must work their quads as they ascend 365 steps to enter the temple complex The beautiful temple is stunning in itself-set in rich shades of gold and royal blue. Although one of Swayambhunath's highlights is definitely the little fuzzy creatures that call this place home. It is this holy stupa that both Buddhist and Hindu devotees come along. It is normal to see Hindu rituals continuing closer to the principal stupa. There are hundreds of monkeys live within the Swayambhunath compound and you can see where they stay and chill out if you follow the path that leads upwards past the temple. Numerous Buddhists and Hindus accept that the monkeys here are holy animals and that they were made when Manjushree, the bodhisattva of intelligence, was making the slope for the sanctuary and the lice in his hair dropped out and changed into monkeys. Try not to get excessively near the monkeys, however. They are notorious for stealing everything they could grab and they were notorious for scratching and punching!
