Enjoy Kathmandhu's cultural highlights

Nepal is incredibly rich culturally from the crazily busy backstreets of Thamel to the serene Pashupatinath Temple. If you have a day or two spare we can arrange a guided tour to show you the very best of Kathmandu. 

Pashupatinath, or the Monkey Temple, is one of the most significant Hindu temples of Lord Shiva in the world. Located on the banks of the Bagmati River in the eastern part of Kathmandu, the temple is listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites list and dates back to 400 A.D. Thousands of pilgrims from all over the world come to pay homage to this temple, that is also known as 'The Temple of Living Beings'. Along the other side of the Bagmati River you will see the main cremation site of Bhasmeshvar Ghat, which is the most-used cremation site in the Kathmandu Valley.

Boudhanath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that is one of the largest stupas in the world and also one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Kathmandu . The stupa's massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal.

Located 13km east of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famed for its rich culture, temples, and wood, metal and stone artwork and is still relatively untouched. It is the home of traditional art, architecture, historical monuments, pottery and weaving industries, temples, beautiful ponds, rich local customs, culture, religion and festivals.

Durbar Square in Bhaktapur has many pagoda and shikhara-style temples grouped around a 55-window palace of brick and wood. The square is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the Kathmandu valley as it highlights the ancient arts of Nepal.
