Kathmandu Full Day Tour

Kathmandu is the history-filled capital of Nepal, a picturesque city packed with world-renowned historical and cultural sights. Top attractions are spread out among different neighborhoods, but you’ll tick off the highlights in a single outing during this action-packed and informative tour, which includes private transportation for added convenience. From sacred temples to ornate palaces and bustling royal squares, you’ll cover all of Kathmandu’s most impressive landmarks.

What to Expect

Kathmandu is packed with unmissable attractions, from a world-famous Shiva temple—patron deity of Nepal—to the one-of-a-kind palace of the Kumari, Nepal’s living goddesses. But sights are spread throughout Nepal’s bustling, sprawling capital, making it difficult for most tourists to navigate the city’s top attractions.

During this convenient and informative guided outing through the city, you’ll tick off top cultural and religious highlights in a single action-packed day. Start with UNESCO-listed Durbar Square, the monument-filled royal square that is still the beating heart of the Old City. Get a peek at unique landmarks, from the former palace complex of the Malla kings of Nepal to the towering, 16th-century Taleju Temple.

From there, you’ll head to two of Kathmandu’s standout temples: the hilltop monastery of Swayambhunath, famous for its resident monkey population, and one of the most renowned Shiva temples in the world, spread along the banks of the holy Bagmati river. Listen to stories behind the spectacular set of shrines before concluding the tour at Bouddhanath, where you can join Buddhists as they walk around the iconic stupa.
