The multicultural city of Kathmandu is the largest metropolis of Nepal. It is one of the most diverse cities in the world that you can wish to go to. Therefore, spending a day sightseeing in Kathmandu is something a must.

Our Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour is extremely popular with tourists. The short trip gives you a glimpse of the lifestyle, religion, architecture, and the cultural beauty of this capital city.

The crowning religious and cultural jewels of Kathmandu are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. They include the famous Durbar Squares of Kathmandu. There are 3 such squares in this city: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Each is a congregation of aesthetic temples, residential areas of kings of yesteryears, and museums that contain historical artefacts.

In addition, the UNESCO World Heritage Sites also include Buddhist temples by the name of Swayambhunath andBoudhanath Stupas. Despite having a Buddhist origin, you will see a large number of Hindus, Christians, and adherents of other faiths as well. They serve as a symbol of the long history of cultural harmony amongst a wide diversity of people in this city.

This single day Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour also includes a visit to the Pashupatinath Temple - the temple that sees the greatest number of Hindu tourists on a religious site in Nepal.

All of these fantastic monuments are a testimony to the ancient history of this place that dates back almost 2000 years. These sites also make for great archaeological and historical learning. Students, teachers, and other academics come here from all corners of the world to study these valuable places.

As all of these places are easily accessible from the Kathmandu airport or hotels in this city, day tours are an integral part of anyone’s visit to Kathmandu.

Apart from these places that you can see in Kathmandu in a day, you can take the Kathmandu City Tour. The most popular of them being Thamel, which is a tourist destination with world-class restaurants, cafes, and eateries with live music as well.

 

Durbar Squares

Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur are three places that are home to Durbar Squares. All of these lie in separate districts but are in close proximity to each other. They are easily accessible in local or private transport.


Kathmandu Durbar Square

Kathmandu Durbar Square lies in the heart of Kathmandu. It is the site of Hanuman Dhoka, which was the official residence of the Nepalese kings until the 19th century. The oldest temples in this square date back more than five centuries ago. Some parts of this square underwent some damage in the 2015 Nepal earthquake, but the sites have been more or less re-established.


Patan Durbar Square

Patan Durbar Square lies in the district of Lalitpur. It is an amazing area with sumptuous displays of Newari architecture in religious temples and historical palaces. The most notable building in this square is Krishna Mandir, which was built in the 17th century. This place is especially crowded in Krishna Janmashtami - the birthday of Lord Krishna. Other notable places in this square are Bhimsen Temple, Vishwanath Temple, and Taleju Bhawani temple.


Bhaktapur Durbar Square

Bhaktapur Durbar Square lies 13 kilometres from Kathmandu. There are four different squares inside the premises of Bhaktapur Durbar Square. These squares are Durbar Square, Taumadhi Square, Dattatreya Square, and Pottery Square.

The most impressive of all the temples in Bhaktapur Durbar Square is Nyatapola Temple. It is the highest pagoda built in Nepal. The 55 window palace is another place of great architectural significance in Bhaktapur Durbar Square.


Pashupatinath Temple

This holy temple of Hindu lies along the banks of river Bagmati. The temple consists of not simply a solitary temple but a congregation of ashrams, stone inscriptions, and shrines that have been built over the past centuries. On the outskirts of the temple is Sleshmantak Forest, where is it believed that Lord Shiva once took in the form of a deer. There are wonderful ceremonies that take place in the temple during the morning and in the evening time. The temple also has a ceremony of cremation along the banks of the Bagmati River.


Boudhanath and Swayambhunath

Boudhanath Stupa is located about 11 kilometres from the centre of Kathmandu in a town called Boudha. It is one of the biggest stupas in the world. Owing to the presence of a large number of Tibetan refugees and the grand structure of this stupa, around 50 gompas have been constructed in Boudha.

Swayambhunath Stupa is a Buddhist temple perched in the top of a hill in Kathmandu Valley. Buddha’s eyes have been painted on the stupa which stands a symbol of peace in the country. It dates back to around 5th century CE making it one of the oldest monuments in Nepal. Around the main stupa are various temples, a museum, a library, and a Tibetan monastery.

      Amazing World Heritage Sites tour in Kathmandu with Sublime Trails

      As an ancient history lover, I always wanted to travel to Kathmandu. I knew there were some UNESCO World Heritage sites inside Kathmandu valley. The Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage sites like monkey temple, Swayambhu and Pashupatinath were best.

      But first, I had to get one local travel agency for this. I saw one decent company with excellent reviews on Trip advisor. Sublime Trails were travellers' choice. So it was mine. I reserved the Kathmandu sightseeing tour with them and paid in advance. Their online payment gateway was hasslefree. Also, Mr. Ram was always in chat with me. He was super responsive. Without hesitation, he replied to my queries. Also, his guides were amazing for this trip. The guide seems to have all the information of heritage sites.

      I wish I had some time to enjoy the view from Chandragiri Hills. But, it remained for my next trip to Nepal. My overall experience was good. They also dropped me to the hotel in Evening and to the airport the next day. Best service True professional.
