The mesmerizing day tour gets triggered at around 8:30am in the morning as we take a casual stroll through the freak streets of Thamel, the hotspot for tourists, which is stringed with numerous souvenir shops selling the ornately detailed handicrafts and sculptures crafted by the skilled hands of Nepal. ‘Garden of Dreams’ will be our first stop where we will have the pleasure of taking steps into the Wonderland where the beautiful garden exists being intensified with countless blooming flowers, cascade and dew ponds. Sipping hot coffee in the adjoining Café and having quick peeks into the Kaiser Library is a fine idea prior to continuing the journey towards Narayanhiti Museum that once used to be the Royal Residence of Nepal until Nepal was declared a Republican state few years back. Treading into the artistic Narayanhiti Museum will gift us with the rare opportunity of knowing the ways of Royal lifestyle while it allows us to be acquainted with the historical facts and tells the tale of courageous acts of Royal families.
Exiting from the Museum, we will walk through the elite street of Durbar Marg that is famed for being lined with shops that bring the clothes of recent international trend into Nepalese Market. KFC and magnificent looking Malls are other prized assets of Durbar Marg which have aided in giving Durbar Marg the ultramodern western looks but with local touch.
Returning back from Durbar Marg, we will walk into the UNESCO enlisted Kathmndu Durbar Square premises. Taleju Temple, the abode of Living Goddess- Kumari, Kal Bhairab and Kasthamandap are some of the cultural marvels existing around Kathmandu Durbar Square that is worth visiting.
Acknowledging the cultural monuments at the core Kathmandu, we will then leave for Swayambhunath Stupa also known as ‘Monkey Temple’ which is perched atop the hill towards the west of Kathmandu city. In addition to have the chance of observing the oldest Stupa in Nepal that was built more than 2000years back, the hill is also popular for offering the panoramic views of Kathmandu Valley.
