Morning pick up from your city hotel in Kathmandu and commence on a half-day guided sightseeing tour of Kathmandu Durbar Square which is one of the important historic and tourist destinations in Nepal. This massive complex is home to palaces, temples and courtyards. The original center of Kathmandu is often named as Basantapur, Hanuman Dhoka or Durbar Square all denoting the same location.
Kathmandu Durbar Square has various historical royal and governmental institutions mixed with temples of different styles and ages.
Continue to Swoyambhunath stupa. Perched atop on a hill in western edge of the Kathmandu Valley, the ancient Swayambunath Stupa (known to tourists as the Monkey Temple) is Kathmandu's most important Buddhist shrine. The sleepy, all-seeing Buddha eyes that stare out from the top have become the quintessential symbol of Nepal.
