With this Private guided tour to UNESCO sites, you will be able to explore the culture, religious background, and the beliefs of the Nepalese associated with the higher power of god and evils. So let's get started with this trip that will help you to discover many unique things related to Nepal. Kathmandu Durbar Square: Located at the heart of the bustling city is the former residence of the Royal Family. The Durbar square is the center for holy ceremonies, carnivals, and Royal events. Surrounded by temples covered in medieval Newari architecture and vendors selling goods, the palace area is a living part of Kathmandu Valley. The inner and outer courtyard of Durbar Square sums up the most religious Hindu and Buddhist sites. The culturally important site of the Durbar Square includes Shiva Parvati temple, Kal Bhairav, Ganesh Temple, big bell, Kumari Ghar, and Museum present in the inner and outer courtyard. Swayambhunath: Believed to be self-sprung from a blooming Lotus flower in the middle of the lake, Swaymabhunath dates back to 460 AD. The sacred Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site, Swayambhunath is overflowed by visitors around the world in search of spiritual awakening and meaning of life. The unique white dome-shaped structure represents earth whereas the 13 tiers tower symbolizes the 13 stages to enlightenment. The serene hilltop location offers panoramic views of the city, adding to the beauty is the prayer flags waving up in the sky making the views and surrounding even more magical. Pasupatinath: The sacred Hindu pilgrimage site, Pashupatinath was built in the 5th century and is among the four most important religious sites for Hindu devotees. Located at the bank of holy river Bagmati, the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the god of the destroyer. The main temple of Pashupatinath is built in Pagoda style architecture with a roof of the golden pinnacle. The inner courtyard and outer complex of Pasupatinath have numerous other culturally important sites, including the cremation site at the bank of Bagmati River. Get a complete insight into the cremation rituals of Hindus as you visit the most dramatic cultural heritage site of Nepal. Boudhanath: Resembling the white dome of Swayambhunath, Boudhanath is another sacred Buddhist pilgrimage site, outside of Tibet. The construction of the stupa serves in essence as a three-dimensional reminder of the Buddha's path towards Nirvana.

Trekking Grade:

The Everest base camp trip is a fairly challenging journey. It is moderately long trekking which goes into the country's most elevated mountain. So travelers require more energy and the trip is actually tiring which includes 5-8 hrs. (approx.) of walking per day on the rocky edges. It doesn't require previous experience, but you must be physically healthy and better if you do regular exercise. If you love walking at high altitude, then this trip is for you.
