Situated between the Himalayas to the North and the Mahabharat range of mountains to the South, Kathmandu valley has long been the center of culture, trade and learning in Nepal. Kathmandu valley comprises the 3 cities of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Each of these medieval cities varies with the other in the beauty of its architecture, the colors of its festivities, the grandeur of its historical monuments and the hospitality of its inhabitants. Tour highlights in and around Kathmandu valley are:
Pashupatinath: The holiest of the holy Hindu temple in South Asia is the focal point of pilgrimage from all over the sub-continent. The holy river of Bagmati flowing nearby is the cremation ground of the Hindus. Funeral pyres can be viewed from across the river bank.
Boudhanath: Probably the largest stupa in the world is also found in Kathmandu valley - the great stupa of Boudhanath. Again the omni-present eyes of the Buddha stare at all directions. This stupa is the place of worship of Tibetan Buddhists predominantly.
Bhaktapur: The place is filled with monuments, most terra-cotta with carved wood columns, palaces and temples with elaborate carvings, gilded roofs, open courtyards. The city is dotted with pagodas and religious shrines. Lying along the ancient trade route between India and Tibet, Bhaktapur is surrounded by mountains and provides a magnificent view of the Himalayas.
