Guided Virtual Tour and Q & A (40 min): USD 25 per-person.
Kathmandu has a very rich history, dating back centuries. In the span of a day, work your way through its around 2000-year-old history, starting at the oldest Buddhist structure in the morning, and then understanding how the arts developed here, the ancient markets that were part of the salt route, the advent of the Hippies that brought in tourism and rock and roll, to how Kathmandu is using ancient heritage in a modern way.
0800 hrs: Pick up and drive to Swyambhunath - upper parking. From here we will start our journey. A small climb of steps to the top of Soyambhunath will take us about 1500 years back where the history of the valley starts.
Once we do this, we shall then walk down to the parking lot and drive to Kathmandu Durbar Square, to wander around understanding the architecture and arts renaissance under the Malla Kings, before sidestepping into Freak Street - where the Hippies arrived in the 60's... Our lunch will be around this area.
Around 1330 hrs - we shall drive to Baber Mahal Revisited to showcase how ancient heritage is being used in a modern shopping complex... these are royal stables from the Ranas, one of the more recent rulers of Nepal.
After a leisurely wander around here, we will head back to drop point.
