Boudhanath: Dominating the Kathmandu skyline, this is a famous stupa which is one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal with its massive mandala, a spiritual symbol in Buddhism.

Swayambhunath: Swayambhu Nath Stupa is a very popular temple in Kathmandu Valley for Buddhists and Hindus.

Every morning, before dawn, hundreds of pilgrims ascend the 365 steps leading up the hill.
According to legend, the lotus mysteriously emitted a bright light, and the name of the place became Swayambhu, meaning "self-created or self-existing." Bodhisattva Manjusri came to a beautiful lake on his journey. He saw a lotus radiating a bright light in the middle of the lake, so he opened a gorge on a southern hill and drained the water to worship the lotus. The lotus then turned into a mountain, and the light became the Swayabhunath Stupa. People settled on the bottom of the lake and called it Kathmandu Valley. Since then, the top of the hill of the self-existent Lord has been a holy place.
Kathmandu Durbar Square: "Durbar Square" is a common name used to describe the places in front of Nepa's former royal palaces. In particular, Kathmandu Durbar Square is surrounded by spectacular architecture that showcases Newar artists' skills (historical residents of the Kathmandu Valley) for centuries.

The best time to travel to Nepal is between mid-September and December when the skies are clear and blue and spectacular. The weather remains dry until about April, with temperatures varying by region. January and February can be freezing, especially at night.
How much time do you need in Kathmandu? 3-4 days is enough time to explore the chaotic streets, visit some of the most famous temples, indulge in Nepalese cuisine, haggle in the stores, and of course, get a taste of the Nepalese way of life.
Nepal is known as the famous outdoor sports destination par excellence, offering a wide range of sports such as climbing, canyoning, zip-lining, etc. Probably the most challenging sport is skydiving from Mount Everest and landing in the highest place in the world.
Kathmandu is generally an extremely safe city. Feel free to stroll around the city on your own at any time of day. Be careful walking alone outside of Thamel at night, but you will find that the night walks are as safe as they are surreal within the well-lit tourist area.

We had a great time in Nepal. Together
with my family, we visited back and forth from Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini, and
Chitwan. One of my friends from Germany recommended who had already done
Everest base camp trek with Nepal Tour and trekking service P. Ltd. We booked
our tour almost in the last hour and moved. When we met Mr. Kishor, he
explained everything about our tour program. It was an incredible moment for my
family because we saw Everest for the first time with our own eyes. We continuously
visited Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini, and Chitwan.
During our visit, we enjoyed exploring many Hindu temples, Buddhist stupas, an ancient palace, beautiful views of the Pokhara Mountains, magnificent lakes, historical places, cultural facts, friendly people, some wild animals in Chitwan National Park, etc. Mr. Rudra was our guide throughout the tour. He was a professional and knowledgeable guide. Nothing was a problem, and we enjoyed every moment in Nepal. Thanks again to all the team for organizing a great trip to Nepal for my family. Of course, I will recommend this travel agency to my friends who are visiting Nepal.
