The 7-days of Nepal tour has been designed to cater to the needs of those who wish to make a cultural tour of the valley, or those who are on a pilgrimage tour in Nepal. The Kathmandu valley boasts of a considerably high number of cultural sites recognized by UNESCO as the World Heritage Sites. All these sites in the Kathmandu Valley are related to the spiritual traditions practiced in the region. The valley blends different culture and lifestyle practiced in the region in its own way. The thousands of temples, stupas, pagodas and monuments inside the valley have made Kathmandu famous in the world as the City of Temples. The mountains encircling the valley surround three medieval cities – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Each city inside the valley has an artistic exposition of graceful temples, elegant palaces, brick-paved courtyards and quaint streets. Besides the three cities, there are also a number of other important sites in the periphery of the mountains. In this trip of Weekend Hiking Tour, we make a tour of some of the most important as well as interesting cultural and natural landscapes of Kathmandu Valley.
