Full description
In the morning you’ll be picked up from your hotel for a full-day sightseeing tour of Kathmandu, the “city of glory.” 

First stop is Durbar (Palace) Square, the epicenter of religious and cultural life. The square is full of temples and old buildings in the Newari architectural style, such as the Hanuman Dhoka and Taleju Temple. 

Afterwards, you’ll visit Swoyambhunath Stupa. Said to be one of the oldest Buddhist shrines in the world, it is set high on a hill overlooking the Kathmandu Valley. 

Next stop is Pashupatinath Temple, a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. This massive temple complex sits alongside the banks of the holy Bagmati River. 

Finally visit Boudhanath, a Buddhist shrine said to be one of the largest in the world. This massive structure stands tall with four pairs of eyes, each facing the four cardinal directions. 

At the end of the day you’ll be dropped back to your hotel in Kathmandu.
