Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal. A vibrant and historically rich city, Kathmandu boasts the most amounts of temples, palaces and historical relics in the country, therefore, every tourist religiously visit the city during their trip to Nepal.

The legend has it, a famed meditation deity, Manjushree, brought the city to life by making it habitable by cutting down the gorge and letting the water flow out of the enclosed valley. Before he arrived, Kathmandu was supposedly under the water!

A day tour of Kathmandu city is a brief trip and can give an overview of the city’s history and lifestyle. More days are required to explore the nooks and corner of this historic place, however, a day tour is enough to summarize everything there is to know about it. You can also opt for this tour after arriving in Nepal or a day before departing. The tour will focus on history and cultural significance of predominant Hinduism and Buddhism. Therefore, most of the sites you visit will be religious or cultural sites. You can choose to relish local cuisine, such as; Newari, Thakali and Nepali, or your own choice of international cuisines.

Kathmandu city is a part of the larger Kathmandu valley. Along with Bhaktapur, Lalitpur and Kirtipur, it makes a grand city. It was inscribed in UNESCO Heritage Site in 2006. A popular hub among the incoming tourists since the ages, it has attracted the flow of Hippies during the 70s. Today, Jhonche and Thamel are the most popular places in Kathmandu which still resembles the milieu of the Hippie’s generation.

Testimonials

I wished to explore Kathmandu city. I have heard and read a lot about it, therefore, wanting to see it for myself. During my trip to Nepal, I signed up for a day tour with Caravan Outdoors, and I mus say, they did provide a thorough tour of the city. I wish I had stayed more to see more of Kathmandu, but I had to leave early. A short but sweet tour. ~Vigo (Tel Aviv, Israel)
