Trip Overview

Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal in itself is a city of wonders! The chaotic streets, crowds, people, and narrow streets in the city will frighten you for a while but soon you will know that it is how life goes in here. The temples, stupas, and other religious spots that you will encounter at each corner of every street will let you know why Kathmandu is called the city of temples. Amidst the crowded city lies an artistic palace built in the ancient reign of Malla kings which is a must-visit place of Kathmandu City Tour. Lying in the heart of Kathmandu city, the palace is a true demonstration of fine art, culture, architecture, and designs. The beautifully sculptured designs in the stones, buildings, temples, pillars, and windows are a true inspiration.

Kathmandu City Tour shares all the specialties of Kathmandu city with you; mainly the UNESCO-listed heritage sites namely Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath stupa, Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath stupa, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Patan Durbar Square.  Swayambhunath stupa is a popular site for all the Buddhist pilgrims. Covering a large area, Swayambhunath consists of large Buddha statues, monasteries and the main part is a white dome and golden spire placed upon it that lies on a top of the hill. From the top, you can view whole Kathmandu city at once. Being a home to many monkeys, the stupa is also known as a monkey temple. Boudhanath stupa is another attraction that has similar white dome and golden spire like of Swayambhunath, however, the stupa of Boudhanath is considered as the largest stupa in the world. Similarly, Pashupatinath temple is the oldest temple of Lord Shiva that holds high value amongst the Hindu pilgrims.

Next on charts is Bhaktapur Durbar square which is also a grand palace built by Malla kings during their reign. The major attraction is the durbar square consists of fifty five windows palace, golden gate, Taleju temple, Nyatapol temple, national art gallery and many more. Moving on to next Durbar Square is Patan Durbar Square. The golden gate, the golden window, Taleju temple, Krishna Mandir, Bhangalamukhi temple and Sundari chowk are the major attractions here.

Apart from these UNESCO listed sites, magnificence of Himalayas is an important view that is not to be missed when it comes to your visit in Nepal. Therefore, Kathmandu valley city tour takes you to Nagarkot, a popular vantage point near Kathmandu for mountain views. Get the panoramic views of mountains like Annapurna range, Langtang range, Dhaulagiri Himal, Gaurishankar Himal, Ganesh Himal, etc. on a clear day as you stand tall on the view tower. Endeavour this awesome blend of culture and nature with Nepal hiking Team!

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
