The Kathmandu Valley has often been described as an open-air art gallery with thousands of sacred shrines in brick, stone, metal, and wood scattered throughout it.
On your tour, you will not be able to see the entire valley, but you will be taken to some of the most important and monumental sites. Many of these are squares or temples that are also designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Kathmandu Durbar Square
This square is home to a house full of woodcarvings of different gods and goddesses. In this 3-story palace, you will also find the living Goddess Kumari. Both Hindus and Buddhists venerate her, and she serves as an illustration of the harmony between the Hindu and Buddhist people.
One of the popular temples of Kathmandu Durbar Square is Kashamandap, locally known as Maru Sattal. It is believed that the name of Kathmandu City is derived from the name of this temple, and it is said that this temple is built by one single Sal (sorea robusta) tree. At the center of this temple, one can see the statue of a Hindu god Gorakhnath and in the 4 corners of the temple, one can see Ganesh statues.
The most visited temple of Kathmandu is Maru Ganesh. The people of Kathmandu Valley believe that the 4 Ganesh statues in the 4 corners of Kathmandu Valley protect the people living in Kathmandu. Every day people go to worship this temple, and especially on Tuesdays, you can see a long line of people waiting for hours to worship. Other interesting things to see here are Mahadev Temple, Shiva Parvati Temple, Bhagwati Temple, Old Palace, Saraswati Temple, Krishna Octangular Temple, Big Drums, Kal Bhairav, Jagannath Temple, and Tal.
Swayambhunath / Monkey Temple is a 2,500-year-old Stupa situated overlooking Kathmandu Valley. Its name comes from the holy monkey living in part of the complex. The painted eyes on 4 sides symbolize the all-seeing eyes of Buddha, and the site is one of the most sacred Buddhist pilgrimage sites.
Pashupatinath is a temple of Lord Shiva and the most sacred of the 275 Shiva temples worldwide. It is also the oldest temple in Kathmandu. The Bagmati River runs alongside the temple and is the site not only of pilgrims who bathe in the river but also contains a special area where members of the royal family are cremated.

Day 2: Everest Mountain flight – Bhaktapur Sightseeing
So the moment we all were waiting for.Early morning drive to Kathmandu domestic airport for mountain flight.Take off from Kathmandu in the early morning for an hour’s worth of spectacular mountain scenery. As the aircraft lifts up and heads towards the east, take a look out of the window to find out what’s in store for you. Each passenger is provided with their own window and can head up to the cockpit for even more spectacular views.
Take in many mountains before heading toward Mt. Everest. At 8,848 meters (29, 029 feet), Everest is the highest spot on earth. Much has already been written about Everest, but to actually see the mountain face to face during a flight is something else. Even while it looms there in front of the eyes, it remains an enigma.
After the amazing experience of the mountains, we head for another day of sightseeing.
Bhaktapur (Bhadgaon) Durbar Square:
Bhaktapur is an olden Newar town in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Bhaktapur durbar square is located in Bhaktapur District in the Bagmati Zone. At the time of the 1991 Nepal survey, it had a population of 61405 and had 9187 houses in it. The male inhabitants of Bhaktapur city wear a special type of cap called the Bhaad-gaaule topi. Bhaktapur city is famous for its yogurt (ju-ju Dhau).
Bhaktapur’s main square, Durbar Square, houses the 55-window Palace which was created by King Bhupatindra Malla and was home to royalty until 1769. It is now a National Gallery. Close by is the Golden Gate which leads into Mulchok Court which is home to the Taleju Temple. This temple, like others in the main towns of the Kathmandu Valley, is dedicated to the goddess Taleju Bhawani and includes shrines to both the Taleju Bhawani and Kumari. Entrance to the temple is restricted to Hindus and the living goddess strictly cannot be photographed.
Bhaktapur durbar square is a popular day-trip destination for tourists visiting Kathmandu. Lately, with more air-pollution in Kathmandu, more and more tourists are staying in Bhaktapur durbar square for a few days, before arrangements for trekking are finished.
The term “Bhaktapur” in the Sanskrit Language(i.e. the source of Nepali language and Hindu language) refers to “The Town Devotees”. This Bhaktapur City is also known as “Khwopa” or “Bhadgaon” or “Ancient Newari Town” throughout the Kathmandu valley. It is the third largest city in Kathmandu valley and was once the capital of Nepal during the great Malla Kingdom until the second half of the 15th century.
