Heritage     Selection    Kathmandu

City Of Temples

Hinduism and Buddhism have co-existed in Kathmandu valley for millenia giving rise to a rich and colourful heritage. Kathmandu boasts a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath and Pashupatinath.

Kathmandu has been the centre of Nepal’s history, art, culture, and economy for many years. Religious and cultural festivals form a major part of day to day life and are a sight to behold for visitors to this often chaotic but charming Himalayan city.

City of Devotees

Bhaktapur is a cultural highlight in Nepal with the best preserved old city and palace courtyards, hosting an ancient lifestyle with many festivals.

Famous for Pottery Square, the Durbar Square (Palace) dating to the 12th century, and the iconic pagoda style temples that characterise the skyline. Marvel at the vibrancy of the local people as they celebrate ancient festivals in vivid, colours, smells and flavours.
