Optional Tour in Kathmandu valley and out of Kathmandu in Nepal

What we get to see in and around the Kathmandu Valley; & wonderful outdoor excursions to the core…Encounters Nepal offers you a host of choices…

As the legend goes, once upon a time the Kathmandu valley was a great lake. And the legend goes on to say that the Buddhist God Manjushree sliced a small hill with his sword of wisdom, draining the lake and making the area inhabitable. The Newar communities are the indigenous inhabitants of the valley and the creators of the splendid civilization preserved in its three cities - Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Their art and architecture are said to be unique & leaves viewers hypnotized for considerable time. Parallel to this, UNESCO has declared the following as world heritage sites: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa and Swayambhunath. Religious culture permeates in this bowl valley of temples and is based on a unique blend of Hinduism and Buddhism which is fascinating. Multi-roofed temples, exquisite monasteries, stone and wood carvings with age-old traditions and religious festivals have kept the culture in Kathmandu valley alive and thriving till today; & will perhaps carry on for a considerable time to come.
