The late Edmund Hillary had once said “If there is a paradise on earth, it begins from the north to Pokhara". The harmonious infusion of snow clad peaks, sapphire blue lakes, green forest, underground waterfalls, deep gorges and bountiful hills make this valley nature paradise one of the most picturesque places in Nepal.

Kathmandu Durbar Square
Beautiful architecture and intricate detailing adorn this huge complex in the heart of the old city. With heritage buildings representing the four kingdoms (Kantipur, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, Kirtipur), the complex is one of the must-visit places in Nepal. There are 50 temples distributed in two quadrangles, such as Taleju Temple, Jagganath Temple, KalBhairav, Swet-Bhairav, Kumari Temple, Kasthamandap, and Nautalle Durbar. So much culture and heritage amidst such beauty!
Popular folklore has it that the whole valley was once a lake, out of which grew a lotus. Manjushree (a bodhisattva of wisdom) cut the gorge with his magic sword, allowing the water to flow out of the lake and the lotus flower was transformed into a stupa. The stupa has since become one of the recognizable symbols of Nepal, along with a variety of shrines and temples in the religious complex, a Tibetan monastery, museum and library which were added in the later years.
