The Kathmandu Valley
The ancient city of Kathmandu is slowly turning into a modern metropolis, but within its bustling streets and squares remain numerous temples and monuments of great beauty and historical significance. The rich tapestry of the cultural heritage of Nepal is synthesized in Kathmandu valley, representing a perfect example of harmony in urban design, elegant architectures, refined cultures, colourful bazaars and straightforward and hospitable people. Once separate kingdoms in it, Kathmandu valley contains three fabled cities – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Out of ten UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Nepal, seven cultural heritage sites are in Kathmandu Valley. All those heritage sites are like open museums!
Some two hundred years ago a Western visitor wrote that there were as many temples as there were houses and many idols as there were people, in the city. Indeed, Kathmandu boasts one of the largest assemblages of magnificent historical monuments and shrines ever built.
The Kathmandu valley is surrounded by several most beautiful viewpoints such as Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Namobuddha and Chandra Giri from where one can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Himalayas: Manaslu (7,111m.), Langtang (7,246m.), Choba Bhamre (6,016m.) and even Everest (8,848m.). The view is particularly memorable at the end of the day when the sun slowly sets beyond the horizon, and the mountains glow in the evening light. Both sunrise and sunset, from these viewpoints, are truly breathtaking. Sometimes the lower valley remains under a thick cloud, setting off the mountains high above them. One needs a minimum of 6 days to visit all the historical sites of the valley that including seven world heritage sites and others.
From Kathmandu, we take an extended trip to Chitwan National Park, for a jungle safari experience where we will stop for two nights. The Chitwan national park is one of the best national wildlife observation parks in Asia, making it an excellent choice for safari. It was created in 1973 and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
Our guides are native, English or any other language speaking with knowledge of the country, they are essential to enjoy the most incredible and authentic places. The guides proudly show the most tourist sites that we cannot miss, but also those places that you will never find in guide books, so your trip to the Himalayas country is a great experience.

Located on a lovely little hill, Swayambhunath Stupa is one of the fascinating architectural jewels of the Country. This Buddhist shrine is said to build around 250 b.c. The white dome, the main feature of the stupa, is identified with the spotless, pure jewel of Nirvana, and is crowned by a thirteen-tiered golden spire of conical shape. On the cube at the base of the spire is a pair of the Buddha's all-seeing eyes, painted on all four sides. The stupa stands on a typically stylized lotus mandala base, believed to have surfaced (self-originated) years ago from the lake that initially filled the Kathmandu Valley.
From the hilltop one can enjoy a panorama of Kathmandu and the rest of the Valley. A long stairway reaches the Stupa up the wooded hillside and past statues of the Buddha. But watch out for the monkeys! At the top, you'll see devotees making rounds of the stupa, spinning the praying wheels as they go around and around.
Another significant thing to be seen here is a magnificent two-tiered golden temple of Harati, the grandmother deity of children and smallpox, believed to be an Ogress until later converted into Buddhist and to be a great caretaker of the children. Next to the temple is the Dewa Dharma Monastery, noted for a bronze icon of Buddha and traditional Tibetan paintings, destroyed by the 2015 earthquake and reconstructed.
The huge gold-plated Vajra, set on the Dharmadhatu mandala at the side of the stupa, the priestly symbol of Vajrayana Buddhism, is worth a close look.
Then we'll head on to Patan. Patan, located at a distance of 7-kilometres, was once an independent Buddhist city-state, and a rival of Kathmandu, from which it separated by the Bagmati River. It is also called Lalitpur, literally the City of the Arts. The old centre has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

It is a world-class museum that displays the traditional sacred art of Nepal in an illustrious architectural setting. Its home is an old residential part of Patan Durbar, one of the royal palaces of Malla kings of the Kathmandu Valley. The gilded door and window face one of the most beautiful squares in the country.
The museum also exhibits a long span of Nepal's cultural history and some rare objects. Buddhism and Hinduism are explained in detail in extensive labels within the living traditions and context.

Some two hundred years ago, a Western visitor wrote that there were as many temples as there were houses and many idols as there were people, in the city. Indeed, Kathmandu boasts one of the largest assemblages of magnificent historical monuments and shrines ever built. Duly recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Kathmandu Durbar Square lies in the heart of the city. Locally, it is also called Hanuman Dhoka Palace Square. The fascinating part of this Palace complex is the towering Nine Storey Palace, overlooking the beautiful cityscape and the vast Basantapur Square.

To view the main temple and one of its few main gates you'll have to cross the river and climb steps to the terrace lying opposite. Along the way, you may come across Hindu sadhus and Santas there on a pilgrimage. These ghats (cremation group) along the Bagmati River are where the bodies of recently deceased Hindus of the Valley cremated.
The trip takes us on to Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur, located about 15-kilometres east of Kathmandu, is the third major city of the Valley. Bhaktapur or Bhadgaon, literally "the City of Devotees", is truly a living museum.

Nepal has four primary seasons:
1. Winter: December–February
2. Spring: March-May
3. Summer: June–August
4. Autumn: September – November
Nepal has the most extensive altitude range of any country on Earth, from 65 meters in the Terai to 8848 meters on the top of Everest. Each altitude and vast valley have its weather problems. The weather is often stable in the spring and fall, and even the high passes may be free of snow. We can trek up to Everest Basecamp with simple running shoes with good weather. But one needs to be sufficiently prepared for any sudden weather changes. On a sunny and calm day, the temperature remains normal, 8 to 23 degrees, but if cloudy and windy, the temperature may drop to freezing in no time.
The best time is from mid-September to the end of January or mid-February to May. July and August are rainy months for Nepal, but each season has its affluence. The jungles will be lush to the rain forest, the rivers will swell, the lowlands or the fields of the hills will be full of rice and other crops.
During these months, Japanese tourists and tourists from other countries, loving the high Himalaya flower, come to vista flowers. And most of the tourist willing to travel to Tibet comes from May to mid-October. And we also have a lot of Spanish tourists touring and trekking in Nepal in these months.
During rainy months the parts of Terai may experience floods and travel is hot, and temperature may, at times, reach around 38 degrees. Still, Indian tourists visit Nepal to escape the heat in their lowlands during this season. During the winter months, the part of Terai will be misty and may find under winter mist until late morning (11 a.m.).
The end of February to mid-May is the best time for flora and fauna in the mountains and Terai. During this season, one may find ample rhododendron flower, magnolia, wild orchids and birdlife. The weather predominantly remains fine in all parts of Nepal.
January February is winter, and from the end of January to February, the high passes in the mountain valley will be under snow cover. During this time, the temperature around the Everest Base camp will be -17 to -30 degrees (after sunset and before sunrise). During the day, the temperature rises around 5 to 11 degrees and more if sundrenched. Nepal is a sunny country, so the temperature is much better than in some European countries, America and Canada, even during the full winter. Many of them from those countries travel to Nepal to escape their cold weather and enjoy the sunny Himalaya Panorama.
Weather in Autumn:
September to November is generally the most stable weather season in Nepal, characterised by crystal clear blue skies and very little precipitation. The Autumn season is the best time to travel to Nepal, especially to enjoy the crystal clear mountain sceneries. Autumn is also a prosperous time; the country collects all its crops and falls several important national festivals such as Dhasain and Tihar, and several Buddhist mask dance festivals such as Manirimdu mask dance festival in Everest Region. The temperature starts dropping from mid-October and remains 0 to 22 degrees.
Weather in Winter:
December to February is generally the coldest month, temperature ranging minimum 0 to 22 degrees in Kathmandu to – 17 to -30 degrees at Everest Base Camp with a short daylight period. Above 2000 metres, the day remains sunny, and the night sky remains crystal clear, enabling to count stars. The country's southern belt, known as Terai, and the deep valley remain under a misty cloud until mid-day. From the end of January, frequent snowfall could expect in the hilly regions above 3,000 metres and deep mountain valleys. It is still an ideal time to visit Nepal because the mountain sceneries are wider. The famous destinations such as Everest and Annapurnas have fewer tourists, and the temperature is still much more favourable than many western countries. The temperature remains -17 (Everest BC) to 0 to 22 degrees (Kathmandu).
Weather in Spring:
Spring – March to May is Nepal's second-best trekking season, with a long daylight period. The mid-hill starting from 2000 to 3000 metres is generally beautiful with many Rhododendron flowers, magnolia and full of wild orchids. It is also the best time to enjoy the bird and wildlife in all parts of Nepal and famously in its nature reserves such as Chitwan, Bardia and Suklaphanta. It is also the primary mountaineering season, and more than 600 climbers reach Everest BC targeting Everest's summit. Clear days remain hazy, and may expect some thunders and light rains in the low land and light hailing above 1,300 metres above sea level. The temperature remains 11 to 21 degrees.
Weather in Summer:
June to August is the monsoon season of Nepal, the most important natural phenomenon to recharge the mountains, hills and terrains, feeding with a tremendous amount of snow and water. The preceding rainy months are July and August, and we may expect daily rains after the late afternoon with heavy rains at night. In the summer season, the forest turns to lush rain forests, and rivers get swelled to their full destructive strength. The country's southern belt, known as Terai, may suffer from the flood. Low land to hill terraces will be attractive with crops, and the high land valley gets carpeted with colourful flowers and beautiful streams. During these months, people travelling to Tibet, including Mount Kailash, from Nepal, flock to its capital Kathmandu. Indian tourists and others living in the hot lowlands enjoy travelling to Nepal to escape the heat in their parts. Japanese and many other tourists arrive these months to see rare flowers and butterflies of the Himalayas. The summer. is also the best time to trek in Mugu, Upper Dolpo, Lower Dolpo, Nar Phu and Upper Mustang regions and falls several festivals such as Janai Purnima, Gaijatra, Gaura Parba, Shree Krishna Janmasthami, Teej, Rishi Panchami, Indra Jatra etc. The temperature remains 13 to 38 degrees, and the average temperature remains 22 degrees.
