There are three important cities in the valley, the most significant being Kathmandu itself. Patan is the most Buddhist of the three and is across the Bagmati River to the south of Kathmandu, but so close as to be almost an extension of the capital. Bhaktapur, also known as Bhadgaon, is the most "medieval" city and is situated in the eastern part of the valley.

 

Day 02 Kathmandu (Sightseeing tour of Kathmandu valley) BBhaktapur and Thimi:

One of the three ancient cities of Nepal, and the only one to be heritage listed as an entire city, Bhaktapur is the home of medieval art and architecture, as well as thriving local pottery and weaving industries. It is one of the few places left in Kathmandu that is free of cars and maintains a traditional way of life. Bhaktapur Durbar Square: This spacious, beautiful square is packed from end to end with ancient temples and monuments including the "Lion Gate? and   "The Bell of the Barking Dogs.? It?s a great place to explore for an hour or two and absorb the local life.

Nyatapola Temple: Dating back to 1702, this five-story pagoda is an impressive sight. Staring down at you from the terraces are intricately carved figures of wrestlers, elephants, lions and griffins. 

Dattatreya Square: The Dattatreya Square is Bhaktapur?s third dazzling gem. The seat of royalty till the 15th century, the area still houses a great number of historic monuments including many wondrous Maths (residential mansions) and temples. The Peacock Window, which is also called the "Mona Lisa of Nepal", is a rare masterpiece in wood. Dating back to the early 15th Century, the unique latticed window has an intricately carved peacock in its centre.

Bouddhanath: 8km from the city centre, this is Kathmandu?s largest Stupa. It?s especially colourful on Saturdays, when Tibetan refugees flock here to pray. 

 

Day 03: Sightseeing tour of Patan & Shyambunath. B

Patan: The ancient city of Patan faces Kathmandu on the southern bank of the River Bagmati. It?s a colourful place rich in Newari architecture, with Hindu temples and Buddhist monuments nestled harmoniously together in the narrow, winding streets and unexpected squares. 

Patan Durbar Square: Exquisitely carved palaces, temples and shrines dominate the square, which is ruled by the ancient Royal Palace. Nestling in one corner is the triple-roofed octagonal tower of the 17th Century 

Krishan Mandir: The first of its kind to be built, this 17th Century temple is the only one in Nepal comprised of entirely stone-carved shrines.

Shyambhunath Temple: Swayambhunath stupa (or Monkey Temple), situated high on a hill top, is one of the most recognised images of Kathmandu Valley and affords magnificent views of the city and valley below.

Kathmandu Durbar Square: Kathmandu?s most impressive sight, Durbar Square is a colourful blend of temples and palaces. It is also home to Kathmandu?s Kumari, or „living goddess?, a young girl believed to be a reincarnation of the goddess Durga. If you arrive early enough, it is worth walking to Kumari Temple.
