(5 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Kathmandu& Kathmandu Valley
This tour is ideal for travelers interested in sampling the unique mix of historic, spiritual and scenic splendor offered by the Nepalese capital and the surrounding Kathmandu Valley.
Arrive in Kathmandu, the crossroads of the Himalayas. Located at an altitude of 4,261 feet, the country’s capital boasts a history dating back to the 12th century as well as plenty of 21st-century comforts. With your expert private guide and driver, explore the best of Kathmandu as well as the most interesting towns in the surrounding valley: Patan and Bhaktapur.
Browse atmospheric streets lined with boutiques selling jewelry, prayer wheels, Buddhist thangkas and more. See spectacular squares featuring traditional architecture. Visit Hindu temples, such as Maju Deval, with its erotic carvings and assortment of marigold sellers, and Shiva Parvati, where a likeness of the god and his consort peer down over the square. Also enjoy excursions to the much-photographed Buddhist temples at Boudhanath and Swayambhunath, with their massive white stupas and fluttering prayer flags. One day, if desired, take a private fixed-wing scenic flight to view Mount Everest, followed by additional cultural touring in the Kathmandu Valley or privately guided trekking.
