The banks of the Bagmati are bordered by a series of funeral Ghats where daily cremation rituals take place. Walking through the temple complex you are likely to meet some of the old Sadhus (wise men). The Sadhus often grow their hair for years and abandon all of the modern-day luxuries in their quest for spiritual enlightenment.

Then, we’ll drive to alluring Baudhanath Stupa which has antique relics and artifacts regarding Buddhism. The ancient Stupa is one of the most important for Buddhists around the world and thousands of pilgrims gather to it yearly. It’s one of the biggest stupas in the world and colorfully adorned with Mani flags.

After sightseeing Swyambhunath Stupa we’ll head towards a majestic place which used to be the mansion of Malla Kings of that time. Kathmandu Durbar Square is the most exciting place both architecturally and culturally. The square and palace areas highlight architectural details like the multi-tiered pagoda and the Newar window. The antiquity of the square records back to the 15th century when the square housed the royal mansions of the great Malla kings. At the time it was one of three separate free kingdoms in the Kathmandu valley beside Bhaktapur and Patan. Prithvi Narayan Shah, a Gorkha ruler fortunately combined all of the independent kingdoms of Nepal between 1740 and 1770 by conquering one after another.
