Colorful Kathmandu

This morning’s guided sightseeing begins in Durbar Square, where the Kingdom’s erstwhile rulers were crowned. It remains the heart of Kathmandu’s historic city center and it’s a great place to begin your exploration. Most of what you’ll see today dates back 300 to 400 years, but some buildings like the medieval Kasthamandap Temple, constructed in the 12th century, are hundreds of years older.
Overlooking Durbar Square, Hanuman Dhoka is the ancient royal quarter of the city. Spread over 5 acres, its name is derived from the stone image of Hanuman, the Hindu Monkey God that sits near one of the main entrances. With most of the buildings and structures dating back to the 12th through 18th centuries, the complex is comprised of numerous courtyards, temples and palace buildings awaiting your exploration.  Touring the site offers a great introduction to the history of the Malla Dynasty that ruled the Kathmandu Valley from 1201 to 1769. Also near Durbar Square, you’ll visit Mahadev Parvati Temple with its richly ornamented windows and façade. Of course, you’ll also have a chance to explore Kathmandu’s lively and colorful markets.
Outside the city center on the opposite banks of the Bagmati River, you’ll also visit the once independent city-state of Patan. Patan was one of the three ancient royal kingdoms in the Kathmandu Valley and here you’ll discover splendid Buddhist and Hindu temples - many ornamented with wood and stone carvings, fine statues, and ornate architectural details. Taleju Temple and the Golden Temple are among the highlights you’ll visit.  Meals B


Kathmandu Valley

After breakfast, journey into the timeless Kathmandu Valley  to explore ancient Bhadgaon, another one of the three kingdoms of medieval Nepal. In the town’s main square, you’ll see architectural treasures like the Lion Gate and the Palace of 55 Windows. The 5-storied Nyatapola Temple is built atop impressive terraces adorned with large statues depicting Goddesses, Humans and Beasts.
Then visit Boudhanath, the largest stupa in Nepal and venerated by both Tibetan and Nepalese Buddhists. Before returning to Kathmandu, you’ll also stop along the banks of the picturesque Bagmati River to see Pashupatinath Temple; dedicated to Lord Shiva this is one of the holiest Hindu shrines in the world. This evening’s farewell dinner features fine Nepalese cuisine accompanied by wine and beer.  Meals B+D
