Overview of Kathmandu Watch Tour
Kathmandu was completely shut off from the outside world until 1951 and no motor road to outside until 1958. In 1984 seven sites in Kathmandu valley were included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This more or less gives you an idea of the richness of the Culture and monuments in the Valley.
There are around 50 temples in the vicinity of Kathmandu Durbar Square (Former Royal Palace Complex) alone. The narrow passes and traditional lifestyle in the heart of capital city will provide you different type of holiday experiences. Likewise, Bhaktapur Durbar Square another palace complex of the Malla King’s during 9th – 18th Century is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the Valley as it highlights some of the finest medieval arts of Nepal.
