From Kathmandu: Patan and Bhaktapur Sightseeing Tour

1. From Kathmandu: Patan and Bhaktapur Sightseeing Tour

Patan and Bhaktapur were separate kingdoms in early times and are filled with age-old palaces, temples, shrines, monasteries, and courtyards. These two medieval cities boast otherworldly views and extensive historical centers, and are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  Patan Durbar Square, the main attraction, comes equipped with a museum, palaces, Hindu temples, and ancient courtyards, whereas Bhaktapur, about 12 km from Kathmandu city, has retained its medieval spirit.   Within the centuries-old atmosphere of Bhaktapur Durbar Square, find Nyathapole Temple, Golden Gate, 55 Window Palace, and a fascinating museum. Enjoy a pleasant drive back to your accommodation.

What people are saying about Patan

I thoroughly enjoyed this very informative tour. The professional and friendly tour guide spoke good English and shared a wealth of knowledge about the objects of visit, and the overall culture and history of Nepal, and also answered any questions that I had. Just as described in the activity description I also had time to explore on my own which made the tour also relaxed. Hotel pick up and drop off happened timely and car was comfortable. As a solo traveller I found that this tour gave me the opportunity to see important landmarks comfortably and gain of insight about Kathmandu and Nepal. Highly recommended.

Good tour guide with great explanations of the areas. Very patient allowed us to take our time walking around.

Very nice experience through history and cultures. We had a great time.
