Natapola Temple

What springs to mind when you think of Nepal? Take a Cultural Day Tour and find out. Your first thought would most probably be Mount Everest the highest mountain in the world. Yes, Nepal is home to the highest mountains but along with it, this magical country is also rich with its vibrant culture, ancient monuments, and indigenous people.

Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the valley has three districts, namely Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur. These districts are full of ancient wonders and the heart of the cities still holds a cultural mysticism. Age-old temples, stone shrines, and carved wooden wonders, a day tour of Patan and Bhaktapur's ancient cities are just what a retro head traveler needs to see history come alive. Come and explore these ancient wonders, Bhaktapur Patan and Changunarayan!

Bhaktapur was the former capital of Nepal. On this tour, you will discover the beautiful architecture of a city that was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

During the walk through the ancient streets of Bhaktapur, we will observe the traditional architecture of the region, which has remained different from that of the rest of Nepal due to the more isolated situation of Bhaktapur at one end of the Kathmandu Valley.

On our Bhaktapur tour, we will get to know Bhaktapur Durbar Square, where various pagodas dedicated to Hindu deities are concentrated around a spectacular 55-window palace built with bricks and wood.

The city of arts, Patan tour is a jaunt to the serene city of ancient craft and culture. We'll start from the Patan Durbar Square showcasing the shades of Krishna Temple. The golden temple of Kwa Bahal encloses centuries-old Buddhist relics within itself. Enjoying the local flavor, we will also visit the local art schools and the Patan Museum. Embrace the local art of living and the love of tradition during the Bhaktapur Patan Sightseeing Tour.

Best Time to Visit

This Tour runs all time of the year but we recommend doing during either Spring (March to May) or Autumn (September to November). Nepal is a country whose climate depends on the monsoon. There is usually a dry season, which runs from October to May, and the monsoon season, from June to September.

From June to September, the monsoon season is characterized by heavy and violent rains that reach their peak between mid-June and the end of August. We do not recommend this period of heavy rainfall when the heat intensifies. In September, the rains become less intense, especially in the valleys, especially those near Tibet where they are even non-existent.

The dry season, from October to April, is the most recommended. This is the time when Nepal's traditional festivals take place. The sunshine is important, the atmosphere pleasant during the day, with maximum temperatures reaching, in Kathmandu, 16 degrees C in January, the coldest month. February, March, April and November are the most pleasant as the air softens, with maximum temperatures reaching 24oC in April. Excellent period for tourism and trekking, the dry season is preferred to discover Nepal.

You may not have to worry about tropical illnesses if you are trekking in the mountains. You highly recommended COVID 19 Vaccine.

Safety and Security

Nepal is one of the safest and hospitable countries in the world for travelers. Nepalese are very warm and friendly towards tourists and most of them go out of their way to help visitors visiting their country. Having said that, to be on the safe side one should always take care of one’s belongings. Keep your cash, jewelry and expensive gadgets and accessories in a safe place. Try not to venture out alone during nighttime, especially at places where there are fewer people.

Passport and Visa for Nepal

All foreigners except Indians need to have a visa to enter Nepal. Unlike other countries, Nepali consulates and embassies overseas issue visas without much fuss. Visas are also issued on the spot at Tribhuvan International Airport or at the border checkpoints.

It can easily be obtained at the Nepal/China border as well. When you arrive at the airport you must fill in an application form and provide a passport photograph. A single entry visa is valid for 15, 30 or 90 days and it costs $25,40. You can pay this amount in any major currency at the airport, but some land crossings insist on payment in USD. Children under 10 are required to have a visa but are not charged for the same. If you are planning to visit India, Tibet, and Bhutan you could apply for a multiple entry visa. You can change your single-entry visa to a multiple entry visa at Kathmandu’s Central Immigration Office. Keep in mind that your passport must be valid for at least 6 months when you submit your visa application. For further information, you can easily contact the Embassy of Nepal.

Great tour, guide, highly recommended

Ariana T, Norway
I spent an amazing day seeing the UNESCO World Heritage sites around Kathmandu with my guide Deepa. She picked me up at my hotel and took me around town. Each of the sites was well worth the visit and the personal touch of a private tour was a nice way to learn about the experience. I would highly recommend this tour with Deepa and Female Tour Guides Nepal Team. The great tour guide, punctual, knew lots of details about the sights, very easy going. thumbs up!
