Kathmandu valley hosts an UNESCO World Heritage Sites composed of seven different Monument Zones, the centers of the three primary cities-Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square, the two most important Buddhist stupas- Swayambhunath and Boudhanath and two famous Hindu shrines- Pashupatinath temple and Changu Narayan temple. Since 2003 the World Heritage List lists the site as being “in danger” out of concern for the ongoing loss of authenticity and the outstanding universal value of the cultural property.In the past, Tibetan Buddhist Masters including Marpa, Milarepa, Rwa Lotsava, Ras Chungpa, Dharma Swami, XIII Karmapa, XVI Karmapa and several others visited and traveled in the Kathmandu Valley. However, the largest group of Tibetans came in the 1960s. Many settled around the Svayambhu and Baudha Stupas. Many other famous Lamas known throughout the world have their Buddhist monasteries and centers in the Kathmandu Valley.The 1500-year history of funerary architecture in the valley provides some of the finest examples of stone architecture found on this subcontinent. A caitya is placed in almost all courtyards in cities like Patan.
From this tour we will visit all of 10 UNESCO World heritage sites of Nepal at once, so we call this tour as Nepal Heritage tour.
