1 Day

Discover the vibrant heritage and captivating tales of Nepal by embarking on a day excursion to Bhaktapur and Patan. These two former kingdoms, once ruled by their own monarchs, hold a treasure trove of stories and memories from the past. Today, they stand as UNESCO world heritage sites, meticulously preserved for future generations to appreciate.

Although the tour may span just a single day, it will transport you back in time to events that unfolded centuries ago. These cities represent the essence of Nepal’s rich history, showcasing its diverse cultures, traditions, arts, and architectural marvels that date back to ancient times.

To truly immerse yourself in the beauty of these cities, exploring on foot is the most ideal way. Stroll along the narrow pathways, marvel at the intricate details of the courtyards, and let yourself be captivated by the charm that surrounds you. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Durbar Squares of Patan and Bhaktapur, where historical photographs, monuments, and sculptures await your discovery. It is unfortunate that these remarkable landmarks often go unnoticed and underappreciated for their magnificent artworks and architectural brilliance.

A day trip to Bhaktapur and Patan Durbar Square offers you the chance to explore antique temples and sacred shrines in the three historical kingdoms of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Lalitpur. This immersive experience allows you to witness a mystical blend of history and present, where traditions continue to thrive and the echoes of the past resonate in every aspect of the culture. The religious principles that shaped these cities still hold true to this day, adding an extra layer of significance to your journey.
