Cultural Sightseeing of Kathmandu
On this trip, you will be visiting the Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath Temple and Kathmandu Durbar Square.
The Pashupatinath Temple is one of the world's holiest and oldest Hindu temples. This temple is revered by Hindus and is devoted to Lord Shiva, who is regarded as the guardian deity. The temple complex, which spans both sides of the Bagmati River, is home to 518 temples and other structures. It is the location where astounding rites that have been performed for ages are performed. This temple receives thousands of people from all around the world during Mahashivaratri. On the banks of the Bagmati River, the distinctive Hindu practices of life, death, and reincarnation are practiced. Right next to the opposite Bagmati River bank lies the Guheshwori Temple, which is devoted to the consort of Lord Shiva.
One of the holiest Buddhist Chaityas in Nepal, the Swayambhunath stupa is located in the western portion of the Kathmandu valley. Due to its hilltop location, this location offers the greatest views of the entire city. Swayambhu literally means "self-existence." This temple was constructed in the 13th century by King Manadeva, according to an inscription that was discovered and dates to 460 AD. Both Buddhists and Hindus regard the temple as sacred.
The Boudhanath Stupa, also known as Chaitya, is one of the world's largest stupas and is classified by UNESCO. The architectural significance, historical significance, and pre-Buddhist philosophy of Boudhanath are all remembered. It is surrounded by hundreds of monasteries and serves as Nepal's primary Buddhist center. The staple was renovated by Licchavi kings in the eighth century, and it was later given the design of a Mandala with a huge dome. There is a pair of Buddha's eyes on either side, signifying mindfulness and calm. Behind the copper prayer wheels on the ground floor of Boudhanath Stupa is a 147-inch wall with 108 inset pictures of the Buddha in meditation. It is a significant location in the Kathmandu Valley to explore.
Kathmandu Durbar Square is another place that resembles medieval architecture and is one of the important places to visit in Kathmandu. Palaces constructed across several eras by Malla and Shah kings can be found in Kathmandu Durbar Square. The Maju Dega, Hanumandhoka, Basantapur tower, Kalbhairav, Dhansa, Taleju temple, and Kumari Bahal are a few of the impressive buildings within the Durbar premises.
Best Time to Visit
The adventure tour is an area of travel that doesn’t consider the time factor in most cases. However, the experiences are largely influenced by the natural setup, environment, weather, and climate. During the Autumn season, the temperature and climate are perfect offerings for the best experiences for visitors. There’s no frequent rainfall, the chances of extreme snowfall are low, the climate is also perfect, and visibility is high.
Similarly, the Spring season is also rewarding. The climatic features are similar to that of the Autumn season. One of the best parts of trekking during spring is you can explore the blooming flowers and vegetation altering its leaves.
The winter and monsoon can be arduous traveling without a good forecast and prediction. Monsoon is one of the best times to trek and explore the adventure if you want to explore an uncrowded trail. During monsoon, the trail is filled with wonderful greenery and blooming flowers making the experience delightful. And for that also, the weather should be forecasted. The winter and monsoon periods have frequently changing weather, making travel difficult. However, trekking and adventure activities are admired by many explorers in these two seasons, more specifically.
