Kathmandu Day Tour is a day full of excursions to the renowned UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Sites of Kathmandu Valley. This single-day tour is appropriate for all age groups and involves sightseeing the tourist spots and driving around the city in a private vehicle. On the tour day, a certified tour guide will lead you to 4 major historical and religious sites of Kathmandu, including Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Temple, Bouddhanath Stupa, and Pashupatinath Temple.
Kathmandu is more than a capital city; it is a cultural hub with people of different ethnicities and backgrounds from all over Nepal residing harmoniously. Due to centralization, Kathmandu is slightly overpopulated, so it's not ideal for solitude seekers. However, there's calmness within the chaos. Several historical monuments, religious sites (of both Hinduism and Buddhism), and cultural elements decorate the city so well and provide you with a sense of internal serenity that you don't have to seek external quietness. In this 1-Day Kathmandu Tour, we'll explore some of those serene sights.
The three districts, Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur, make up the Kathmandu Valley, situated in central Nepal's high plateaus at an altitude of 1400 meters. Although the cities are crowded, the Shivapuri, Nagarjuna, and other forests on the valley's outskirts give Kathmandu a natural touch. If you need to get away from the crowded concrete jungle for a breath of fresh air, several beautiful hikes are just a 30-minute driveway from the city center.
Newari people are the native inhabitants of Kathmandu Valley and the nearby areas. These genuine keepers of Nepal's religion, culture, and civilization take pride in maintaining their ancient customs and traditions. The Newar people's cultural, literary, artistic, commercial, agricultural, and culinary accomplishments are well known. According to the yearly Human Development Index released by UNDP, they continuously rank as Nepal's most economically and socially advanced community.
If you have 1 leisure day to spend in Kathmandu, this trip is a good opportunity to explore the city and learn about its art, culture, history, and people. Our experienced tour guide will not only escort you to these places but also give you valuable insights that you can't get on your own.

What is the best time for Kathmandu Day Tour?
The Kathmandu Day Tour can be taken at any time of the year. Due to Kathmandu's geographical location, it experiences a moderate climate. It's neither too hot nor too cold in Kathmandu at any given time. However, if you'd like to have the best experience, we advise you to book the tour in spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November). Spring and autumn days are pleasant, with mild temperatures and clear skies.
Summer/monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February) are alright too. The maximum temperature in summer/monsoon reaches 35 degrees Celsius, and the minimum temperature in winter falls to 0 degrees Celcius, which is bearable with appropriate clothing. Days are warm in winter anyways. If you're worried about the sun in summer, you can apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses. However, the rain may interrupt your outing.
