0800 hrs: Pick up from Sanepa by a car with a guide 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 Sanepa.

Day Tours | What to carry

The day tours are the ones where you have to worry the least about what to carry. However, some information is always helpful.

  • A light jacket or a warm jacket (depending on time of year and how cold you generally get)
  • An umbrella or a rain jacket. You never know
  • Some money (in case a souvenir tempts you, or you want to have a drink)
  • A water bottle (water is available for purchase everywhere, though we do not recommend purchasing plastic bottles - garbage is a nuisance in Nepal.
  • Comfortable clothes - shorts are also fine of course..
  • Comfortable shoes - trainers are best!
