Mountains & Breakfast

Kathmandu Valley and Dhulikhel Tour (3 nights, 4 days)

Blessed with the densest concentration of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kathmandu Valley is a treasure trove of religious, cultural, and architectural heritage.  It’s pagoda-roofed temples, squares choking with sculptures, sites that are holy to both Hindus and Buddhists, and countless festivals evoke Rudyard Kipling’s famous line, ‘The strangest dreams of Kew are the facts of Kathmandu.’

    After admiring the skilled craft of the metal, wood and stones of Changu Narayan Temple, you’ll head over to Bhaktapur Durbar Square. Bhaktapur truly lives up to its name of ‘City of Devotees’. Its square is filled with religious temples and medieval ponds like Nyatapola Temple, 55 Window Palace, Gold Gate Temple Siddha Pokhari, etc. Walking through the cobbled alleys of Bhaktapur Durbar Square is a nostalgic trip back to simpler times.

    The best time to visit?

    March-May and then September to early November are the best times to visit, weather-wise. For major festivals, the best times are the monsoon months (June-August).
     

    Attire

    Kathmandu is hot from March to May. September is cool with chances of rain, so carrying umbrellas is wise. Avoid dresses that reveal too much of your body. Nagarkot can get really cold, so bring warm clothes.
     

    What to do when inside temples and monasteries?

    When you are inside temples and monasteries, do not act in any way – excessive photography, talking loudly, wearing shoes into prayer rooms – that impinges on the activities of the priests or devotees.
     

    Documents and IDs

    Forms for most things – cell phone sim cards, visa extensions, hotel forms – in Nepal require passport-size photos, so bring a dozen or more. Your passport is your ID while in Nepal. Carry it everywhere.
     

    What does Nagarkot have beside the mountain views?

    You can go on walks or, if you have more time, go cycling. Rock climbing is another activity. Another interesting place to visit is the small cheese factory.
