This Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour takes you to the famous Malla landmarks that include the Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. If historical accounts are to be believed, then these monuments date back to the 16th century when the Malla kings used to rule Nepal. These squares display a sophisticated architecture, which is seen in Krishna temple, Nyatapola, and Bhimsen mandir. Learn the myths of Buddhism as you head to the Swayambhunath stupa, which is perched on the hill of Swayambhunath. Dodge monkeys and proceed to the summit to observe the stupa & small temples.
Next, head to Boudhanath Stupa, which sits 11 km away from Kathmandu. This stupa sits on an ancient trade route with Tibet and as a result, you can see many Tibetan monks here.
