This day tour with a knowledgeable guide visits the highlights and attractions of the valley from ancient palace squares to famous Hindu and Buddhists monuments and shrines and more.  The stone sculptures, woodworking, temple and palace design, metalwork and daily devotions they receive is absolutely fascinating. The care and dedication of the surrounding community and pilgrims is an unforgettable experience. Everyday life here is deeply connected to the temples, icons and sculptures of a previous age.

The art and architecture of Nepal is greatly influenced by religion and images of Hindu and Buddhist themes and deities, both wrathful and benevolent are displayed within the sculptures, paintings, woodwork and metalware. The Newar people, an indigenous ethnicity of Nepal, have had the biggest impact on art and architecture of Kathmandu Valley.

This tour will provide an insider’s look at the very heart of Nepal’s history and culture with endless photo opportunities along the way.

Sightseeing in the Kathmandu Valley is calling, and Secrets of the Himalaya is here to answer that call with you.
