Today is the perfect day to begin your immersion into the unique culture of Nepal. This begins with a tour of the legendary Kathmandu Valley and three of the seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the morning, we will take you to two of these places. You can pick the ones that interest you the most. There are the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu and Patan where the kings of old ruled. There are also Hindu and Buddhist sites that date back centuries with their amazing architecture, carvings and statuary. In the afternoons, we will travel to Bhaktapur, the City of Devotees. This city was once the center of its own kingdom and features its own Durbar Square with the famous 55 Window Royal Palace. The entire city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are amazing temples, stone statues and wood carvings. Explore the narrow streets where you will find different types of craftsmen working as they have for centuries. In the evening you will return to your hotel for the night in preparation for tomorrow’s journey into the Everest region.
