Here are the places where Kathmandu Day Tour takes travellers:
This is the pure example of great religious harmony in Nepal. It is located nearby Thamel and also known as the Monkey Temple. The Stupa and temple alongside each other is the deity to both Hindus and Buddhists. The Stupa is located at the top of the hill surrounded by the green lush forests. One can have the panoramic view of the Kathmandu Valley including some mountain range.
According to myth, the Kathmandu Valley was a lake. Manjushree saw the eternal light on this place and hence erected as the holy place after all the water of the valley was drained. Therefore, the place is highly significant for the valley dwellers.
The valley used to be ruled by the three Malla Kings. Therefore, most of the architectural buildings are from Lichhavi dynasty and Malla dynasty.
Kasthamandap Mandir, Palace, museum and surrounding temples are the major highlights of the area. There are numerous styles of buildings within the area. Sikhara, Pagoda and Nepalese traditional style of buildings built in ancient times are seen in the area. Relish and get closer to the Nepalese history and craftsmanship.
This is another Buddhists holy pilgrimage site located nearby international airport. Interestingly the stupa is within the 10 minutes of walking distance from Hindu’s most holy temple the Pashupatinath. Even in the entrance of the Stupa, there are idols of Lord Ganesha. Therefore, this place too provides enough evidence that Nepal truly is blissful harmonious country. The prayer chants and the smell of incense will definitely revitalize your soul.
This is the most sacred place of Hindus. Therefore, during Kathmandu Day Tour travellers mustn’t miss to visit it. There are numerous idols of Hindu gods and goddesses. The temple is mainly of Lord Shiva’s. However, foreigners other than Hindus are not allowed to get inside the main temple. Even if others are not allowed to enter there are numerous interesting things to observe in the Pashupatinath premises.
Hindu cremation pyre fire site, Gorakhnath Baba Temple area, Deer sanctuary and Sadhus Babas are the things and people to observe during the temple tour.

Subject: Thanks for a great trek
Message: We have just completed a 15 day Himalayan trek with Awesome Nepal Treks and it could not have been better! The trek was very well organized, had excellent food and accommodation, there was no problems whatsoever and our guide Dil was a very informative, well-spoken and absolutely entertaining guy. The whole experience was amazing and I would strongly recommend Awesome Nepal Treks to anyone who wants a great, enjoyable, hassle-free trip.
My cousin and I traveled to Nepal in 2011 and completed the Everest Basecamp Trek with our guide Dil Thapa.
Dil absolutely made sure this trek would far exceed my expectations and I am grateful for the time we shared together in Nepal.
There are an endless amount of photos and videos online for us to see the natural beauty of Nepal before arriving there. The greatest compliment I can give Nepal (more specifically, Dil Thapa) is this, the beauty of Nepal is its people first and foremost.
Trip Name: Short Poon Hill Trek
Booked this trek from the comfort at home in the UK. Communication with Dil was brilliant, his response to all my emails were quick and courteous. He tailored the trek around us, as a small group of 4 adults ranging in age from 29 to 69 (who was still recovering from an ACL op last May). His pace was brilliant for our group.
Dil arranged to meet us in our hotel in Kathmandu and talked us through the trek, bringing maps, holdalls and T-Shirts.
The trek was for 3 nights, 4 days staying in good, clean lodges. All was included except our drinks.
We experienced trekking in glorious sunshine up to Poon Hill. There was still snow on the ground and Dil provided the group with crampons, which made walking easier and safer.
Our trek started and ended in Pokhara. Dil and his team collected us from our hotel in Pokhara promptly at the time agreed.
Dil and the porters were brilliant, the porters were more than porters and made our trek even more enjoyable. We felt totally safe and Dil was an excellent guide. The scenery was spectacular.
Would certainly use Awesome Nepal Treks again as Dil arranges trips to Tibet and Bhutan.
