The tour is a great introduction to Nepali art, architecture, history, and historical events.

You'll drive to Nagarkot on the same day and get to enjoy a beautiful sunset. Nagarkot is a famous hill station near Kathmandu, loved by locals for a quick getaway from the chaos of the city.

Enjoying a gorgeous sunrise with mountain views on the following day, you drive back to Kathmandu stopping at Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square enroute.

Kathmandu Valley is divided into three parts; Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Lalitpur. In the past, all these three places were separate kingdoms and ruled by different kings. So, we have three mediaeval places in Kathmandu valley. The Bhaktapur Durbar Square is known for its 55 Windows Palace, the golden gate, ancient temples, etc. Likewise, the intriguing Newar architecture of Patan Durbar Square will leave you in awe.
