Kathmandu Valley Tour

5 Days 4 Nights

Overview

This Kathmandu Valley Tour, a five-day plan, is a trip designed for those who want to explore nothing but the historic Kathmandu Valley. As you may know, there is so much from historical architecture to religious temples to traverse in the stretch of the valley. The tour lets you have a slow and thorough exploration of all the major sites of the valley.

FYI, Kathmandu Valley, or Nepa Valley, is a bowl-shaped valley that comprises three historic cities of Nepal: Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur. According to legend, the valley was once a large lake that was eventually emptied after a hill was cut. The myth may or may not be real, but the valley’s significance is real.

Altogether, the valley is home to 130 notable ancient monuments, including seven UNESCO world heritage sites. The seven popular world heritage sites in the valley are Pashupatinath Temple, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Chagu Naryan Temple.

This tour will take you on a journey to visit each of the seven heritage sites one by one. The visit to those locations will transport you back in time, and the rich Nepalese Architecture and ambiance will leave you speechless. It will also be an educational walk to Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage sites. Alongside, there will be a short drive to Nagarkot, the famous hill station to view Kathmandu Valley and spectacular mountain view. 

After the five days of the Kathmandu Valley Tour Itinerary, you’ll have a whole different portrait of Kathmandu Valley and Nepal as a whole. And Nepal will hold a particular place in your heart as a result of this tour.

I went to Upper Mustang Trek with them, which I can vividly remember even after 2 months now. I found out about this team from one of my friends. I'm glad he suggested it. Everything went well during the trek. The guide was so humble and good. He showed me things that I could never have if I was traveling solo. I feel a deep connection with the landscapes of Mustang. Thanks to the guide and the team. The trip was a great experience!

The trip was well worth it! I was in Nepal last Autumn with the team of Shiva and Kiran, whom I knew from my colleagues. I was confused about where to go. But my expert friends, Shiva and Kiran, suggested I do their best-selling Nepal Panorama Tour. I'm glad they suggested it. I am not a hiking person, my body does not let me be. So I went on a tour of Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. In Kathmandu, I saw a lot of historical and time-traveling sites. Pokhara was so much vivid by Fewa Lake; I enjoyed the boat riding there. And Chitwan was unimaginably full of nature. I saw rhinos, elephants, birds, crocodiles. I was expecting the Bengal Tiger, but luck did not favor me. Except for that, Chitwan treated me quite well. Overall, the trip felt so smooth and rewarding. I traveled around Nepal panoramically. Thanks!

We had a great time with Shiva and his team, from being picked up from the airport to being dropped off there, everything was just perfect!  We had "culture tour and a trip to Shaman Village" Hiking.  Got to see many cultural sites around Kathmandu and was an incredible experience in monastery visiting monks. The program was great and fantastic as far as we wanted away from the tourist crowds, all accommodations were good. It’s really a great opportunity to explore Nepal as local. 
The “TeamSabbatical” were very helpful and friendly as well. When we have a questions or a problem can find someone on the spot immediately to find a answer and solve it. We highly recommend the trip Meet the Monks with Boudhanath Stupa tour, and the Kathmandu Cultural tour together.
