Leaf Holidays Treks and Expedition presents one day cultural tour in Kathmandu which delivers a close preview of Nepal. It not only vitrines the ironic culture of the Nepalese people but also takes you back in time through its architectural whizzes. This tour takes you to four places: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Bauddhanath and Swayambhunath temples that clench both spiritual and cultural significance to the Nepalese people. We begin our visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites starting within the Kathmandu District.

These places include Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath and Bauddhanath.Kathmandu Durbar Square vitrines Nepalese sculpture and construction at its paramount. The construction is emblematic of the Malla dynasty who leads over Nepal from the 12th to 18th century.The Swayambhunath Temple has a gripping blend of both Hindu and Buddhist monuments and stupas. It is popularly known amongst outsiders as the Monkey Temple due to the large monkey population exists in the area. Pashupatinath Temple is positioned on the panels of river Bagmati and is one of the chief temples of Lord Shiva.

The temple zone is filled of other smaller temples of frequent Hindu divinities which give the whole place and quality of a blessed heaven. The Bauddhanath Stupa is one of the chief stupas in South Asia which was constructed on the olden trade course to Tibet. Alongside the foremost stupa which was constructed in a Nepali Buddhist grace, there are over fifty Tibetan friaries around the area built by Tibetan dealers and the large invasion of Tibetan refugees over the years. Here, you not only get to escalate the remarkable art and architecture of ancient Nepal but that of bordering Tibet as well.
