What To Expect

Kathmandu is so rich in culture and religious significance that it draws travelers from all over the world, seeking enlightenment. This walking tour gives you a fresh look at all these significant historic sites, exploring them from ground level. Meet up with your English speaking guide at the Electric Pagoda Cafe and fortify yourself with some refreshments before heading off on your tour. Your walk will take you to the Swayambhu Stupa, and the famous temples of the region: Indrayani Temple, where offerings are given on Saturdays, Bijeshwori Temple, dedicated to Vajrayana Buddhist deity Vakrayogini, and the Shova Bhagawati Temple dedicated to the goddess Durga. Make a stop at the Nyanang Phelgye Ling Monastery where monks gather to pray, and see the Tibetan Buddhism hallmarks in Maha Manjushree Sarashwate Temple. After this thrilling journey through the cultural and religious sites, you'll head to the Natural Museum of History in Nepal, which introduces you to 200 years' worth of discovered flora and fauna within the region. You'll walk back across the river to see the UNESCO World Heritage site Durbar Square, where your guide will explain has held many numerous cultural and religious celebrations, and therefore a site of great importance.
