Nepal has been an extremely fascinating destination for not only trekkers and travelers, but scholars and researchers as well. It now contains countless architectural monuments and varied cultural and religious traditions. Out of ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Nepal, seven cultural heritage sites are in Kathmandu Valley.
Our Heritage tours begin from Kathmandu, with a visit to Kathmandu durbar square where you will have the opportunity to observe medieval temples, ancient art and the temple of the living goddess Kumari, before moving on to medieval cities like Patan and Bhaktapur where you can explore old palaces and temples or just take in the stunning mountain views, terraced fields and the fascination of diverse cultural groups.
