Kathmandu Day Tour Highlights

  • UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Short tour in Kathmandu
  • Explore the Newari and Nepalese cultures of Nepal

Off the bite, the famous hippie destination of the late 60s and early 70s, Freak Street, which is popularly famous among tourists, would be a fascinating experience. You will be amazed that marijuana was legal in this part of the square. The giant idol of Kal Bhairav, the God of wrath, would make your camera lens busy as ever.

You will witness the city’s social, religious, and political focal point in Kathmandu Durbar Square.  The capital city of Nepal, i.e., Kathmandu, is derived from the temple Kasthamandap, which is supposed to have been built from the wood of a single tree that will spark your spiritual soul.


Swayambhunath temple is another attraction point on Kathmandu Day Tours. It is also known as the Monkey Temple. Swayambhunath temple symbolizes harmony between Hindus and Buddhists as both followers equally worship it. The majestic Stupa lies at the top of the hill, where the picturesque Kathmandu Valley can be seen from a 360-degree angle.

There is a belief that the temple emerged automatically once Manjushree diverted the water in the valley. Moreover, After this majestic sightseeing experience, we will take you to Boudhanath Temple.

This Tibetan-origin temple is the holy destination of Buddhist followers; however, the temple’s unique design and décor make this place the site to visit for every person. We recommend you visit these two Buddhist Temples in the evening time. The incense and prayer candles lit up the temple magnificently.


Finally, we will take you to another UNESCO-designated heritage site, Pashupatinath. Without sightseeing, this place’s Kathmandu Day tour is not complete. This temple is the holy deity of the Hindus. The cremation process of Hindus could be a new experience for you.
Along with this experience, the “Jyotirlinga” resemblance to Lord Shiva ignites your spirituality and purity. The architectural design, Hindu rituals, and many religions. Historical monuments and their excellent descriptions in our trip guide will make your trip resourceful. After that, a car or a vehicle will take you to your hotel.

  • Day 02: Full Day Kathmandu Sightseeing
    Pashupatinath Temple

    After breakfast, drive to Pashupatinath Hindu Temple, 28 kilometers North-west of Nagarkot is the holiest of all the Shiva shrines in Nepal and is the abode of Lord Pashupatinath, the guardian spirit of Nepal.

    The temple of Pashupatinath is a sizeable double-roofed pagoda of brass and gilt; the gateway is plated with silver. It stands on the western bank of the Bagmati about five-kilometer northeast of Kathmandu and contains the sacred Linga of Lord Shiva. Before the temple stands an enormous gift figure of the bull Nandi, the mount of Shiva, flanked by a golden trident.

    A crematorium is outside the temple by the side of the vast but narrow river, and the wood environment is dotted with small monuments. On the yearly festival of Maha Shivaratri (February/March), the temple is visited by thousands of believers, including many pilgrims from Nepal and India. The temple is also the site of several festivals and rituals.


    This Colossal Stupa, one of the biggest in the world, is situated 2 kilometers north of Pashupatinath. The splendid some of Bouddhanath Stupa is approximately 120 ft in diameter, 1hec in width, and 43m in height. Its straightforwardness of form is its principal feature, unique amongst massive Stupas in the valley in its lack of the attached five shrines of the Buddha.

    Some believe it characterizes fat Adibuddha (Half Buddha), the first or Primitive Buddha, free of conceptual releases. Only the steps built into it on the north side, seemingly the ladder Sakyamuni ascended into Tushita heaven, berks its regularity. A thick layer of whitewash coats the dome, and the form of a double lotus depicted in saffron water paints it.

    This can be supported on various promising dates and is also done annually on Dashain Purne (Full Moon at the time of Dashain), occurring on the Full Moon in September by the Bouddhanath Area Development Committee. Bouddhanath, the dome, is an added terrace with a remarkable 108 niches filled with stone-sculptured deities of the Nyingmapa School’s pantheon.

    They replace the usual five Buddha shrines in defining the content of the Stupa-Mandala; these images were almost certainly commissioned by Sakya Zangpo in the 16th century when the present Stupa was built or after that. On top of the Stupa: Water, Ether, air, fire, and earth.

    Swyambhunath (Monkey Temple)

    It lies 10 km west of Boudhanath Stupa. It is two thousand years old, making it one of the world’s oldest and most well-known Buddhist charities. The Chaitys (Stupa), which forms the main structure, is composed of a solid hemisphere of brick and earth supporting a lofty conical spire capped by a panicle of gilt copper. Painted on the four-sided base of the spire are the all-seeing eyes of Lord Buddha. It stands on a hill, Stupa style.
