Nice tour but pricy Reviewed Tour: Kathmandu Valley Day Tour
Deniz Karadag From Turkey At

“We were picked up by a driver and a guide. We had comfortable ride with them. Guide was knowledgeable. Tour was really nice actually. Company owner, guide and driver were very friendly. However, we found the tour a bit pricey(although it was cheaper than other similar tours). Because we also paid for entrance fees for the sites. So whole tour costs your 180-200 USD and I don't think that it should cost that much.”

“We did a tour to Everest Base Camp on a helicopter followed by a trek to Manaslu. Our experience was fantastic with the Himalayan Leisure company. A very professional company, dedicated for customer satisfaction and I couldn't ask for anything better. Highly recommended tour although it's an expensive experience. Happiness is important than money.”

Kathmandu - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Booking a trip to Kathmandu means you will get to discover one of the most captivating cities on Earth. The Nepalese capital is brimming with centuries worth of otherworldly culture, art and architecture, all residing in a city that never misses a beat. This is why holidays in Kathmandu will be an absolute delight for every independent, adventure-seeking explorer as the city is versatile for all types of travelers from luxury to budget. 

Tour Highlights

  • Located on the Bagmati River, some 5 km south-east of the city center, Pashupatinath Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to God Shiva. It is one of the holiest sights in the entire country and attracts many pilgrims from South Asia especially during Shivaratri, an annual Hindu festival that celebrates Shiva. 
  • Kathmandu Durbar Square is the heart of the Nepalese capital. This colorful plaza is home to several significant sights, including the Living Goddess Kumari House, Taleju Temple and Bhairab Temple. The Durbar Square suffered massively during the April 2015 earthquake and is currently undergoing renovation. 
  • Boudhanath Stupa lies 5 km north of Kathmandu city center. The massive 5th Century Stupa is one of the most important pilgrimage sites for both Hindus and Buddhists in Nepal. 
  • Swayambhunath Stupa is another majestic sacred structure which overlooks the city from a tall hilltop. At the so-called site of “Sublime Trees”, you will find lush vegetation and an intriguing blend of Buddhist and Hindu imagery.

Travel Tips

  • Air in Kathmandu is notoriously dry, dusty and polluted, especially during the dry season (October to May). If you find yourself experiencing respiratory difficulties, make sure to wear a face mask whenever you go outside.
  • Other than getting around on foot, the most convenient methods of transport in Kathmandu are rickshaws and taxis. Most tourist areas are serviced by rickshaws, while taxis are found all across the city. Don't be shy to haggle with the cab drivers. 
  • In order to avoid water borne diseases, it is advised not to drink tap water while in Kathmandu. Make sure to always equip yourself with plenty of water bottles, especially if you plan on spending prolonged periods of time trekking or sightseeing. It’s also best to avoid consuming ice, salads and pre-cut fruit in restaurants.
  • If you are in Kathmandu for a short time, do consider going for short hikes around Nagarkot and Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park areas.

Nepal has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Nepal before planning your tour. If you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in Nepal, do check out our Nepal Travel Guide for more information.
