One Day Hikes and Tours Around Kathmandu

Kathmandu day tour

Kathmandu Valley comprises the three ancient cities of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, which were once independent states ruled by the Malla kings from the 12th to the 18th centuries. The three cities house seven UNESCO World Heritage shrines altogether. These seven World Heritage Sites are all amazing man-made wonders still standing majestically some of them over 2500 years old. Although their close proximity to each other means you could travel to each sight in a single day, youll need two to three days in the city of Kathmandu to get the full experience of each location. The valley is also home to hundreds of other exquisite monuments, sculptures, artistic temples and magnificent art reminders of the golden era in Nepals architecture.
