Kathmandu

The Kathmandu valley once the state in itself ruled by Newars has three distinct cities like Patan, Bhaktpur and Kathmandu, which is very rich in cultural heritage, tradition etc. Along with the well-off cultural property, this city has the finest topography and great landscape. Vast ranges of the mountains and terraced high hills are commonly visible from any part. Too close to snowcapped mountains but this city has highly fertile soils to irrigate and since the temperature too is just between 40 to 250c in average, the Kathmandu city has already become the finest geographical region to be in. this valley has the very long history right from the time of Gopals and Mahispals supposed to be the tribes of Lord Krishna. However, the well-developed culture begun from Lichchhavis and reached the height in the Mallas time, the newars. The Temples and stupas likethe Pashupatinath, the Changunarayan, the Swayambhunath, the Boudhanath etc have the most important place for Hindus and Buddhists respectively.

Along with the rich cultural properties and natural properties, the stunning mountain views are unbelievable. It looks like as if the Kathmandu city is in the lap of the great Himalayas, and everyone coming in the Kathmandu for the first time can think of snowfall whole year on in the winter at least. But all the assumptions turn down once you enter in. However the views are unmatchable through some place near Kathmandu or within Kathmandu provides this stunning opportunity. Among the place Nagarkot (2175m) would be fantastic to view Mt. Everest and other Himalayas,

Similarly Phulchowki Hill of Patan (2760m) has the outstanding views of Annapurna, Manaslu, Fishtail, Dorje Lakpa, Everest Etc. By being at Kakani (198m), another close place, the mountains like Ganesh Himal, Annapurna can be observed, whereas through Shivapuri Hill, the breathtaking mountain views in the north can be experienced. The place for Mountain View, it is Dhulikhel where you can view the various snows capped mountain ranges. You can even go far the mountain flight, to view high peaks of the world closely but it will be the nice option after you have travelled Kathmandu with mountain views. Mountain Layers Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. is proud to organise this Kathmandu City and Mountain View Tour.

About the beauty of Patan, a western lady writer has to say this - "Patan means eternity itself and Patan Durbar Square is the spectacular sight of Asia indeed". Really it is full of Hindu temples and Buddhist monuments with bronze gateways, guardian deities and wonderful carvings and many visitors come here to see these monuments.

Patan Durbar square is the famous visiting place. The square is full of ancient places, temples, and shrines noted for their exquisite carvings.

The former royal palace complex is the center of Patan's religious and social life and houses a museum containing an array of bronze statues and religious objects.
