Day 2- Kathmandu – Full day sightseeing (Bhaktapur Durbar, Swayambhunath, Kathmandu Durbar Square)

Today we tour World Heritage Sites of Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Swayambhunath temple & Kathmandu Durbar Square. Lying about half an hour’s drive from Kathmandu, Bhaktapur is a protected UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a joy to walk through the ‘vehicle-less’ cobbled lanes of the old city, exploring the pagoda temples and marvel at the exquisite workmanship of artisans of the Malla era. The Golden Gate, Datteraya Temple, 55 Windows Palace, Nyatapole Temple are some of the fascinating cultural gems of Bhaktapur.  We also visit Swoyambhunath Temple. Lying at the top of the hill, the temple is a sacred site for both Hindus and Buddhists. Swoyambhunath’s origin is linked to the formation of Kathmandu valley. According to local legend the temple is as old as Kathmandu valley. Enjoy a 360 degree view of the city from the temple.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kathmandu Durbar Square houses the House of the Living Goddess, Hanuman Dhoka Palace Museum and scores of pagoda temples and ancient structures. Though the2015 earthquake damaged some of the structures, rebuilding and renovation work is underway.
