About Kathmandu Valley in Kathmandu
Kathmandu Valley is the heartbeat of Nepal and one of the most visited destinations all along the Himalayas. Located at the momentous crossroads of all the ancient civilizations of Asia, Kathmandu Valley has always been the silent spectator of the regimes that rose and fell in China over the head and India down below. But it had its own share of history as well. History of Kathmandu Valley starts with the native residents, the Newars. One can find a reminiscence of Newari architecture, culture, traditions and cuisines all around their Kathmandu Valley tour. Afterwards, it changed hands a few times, but mostly between the Mallas and the Gorkhas. The latter was responsible for unifying Nepal and creating a modern state. Kathmandu valley of Nepal is by far the most eventful place in the country. Everything worth mentioning takes place around here. All the best places to visit in Nepal are also in this valley. To give an idea, this place itself has seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, all of which are very popular for Kathmandu Valley sightseeing.
The Seven UNESCO World Heritage sites:
The holy and sacred Shiva shrine, Pashupatinath Temple is situated on the banks of River Bagmati and is only 3 km away from the airport. Changu Narayan, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is the other heritage site among the temples of Kathmandu Valley. Swayambhunath Stupa and Boudha Stupa represent Buddhism in the list. The remaining three places are taken up by the Durbar Squares. Durbar squares are the city centre locations of Nepalese cities, where most of the urban thoroughfares meet, and points of interests are located. Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan Durbar Squares are three really impressive locations to explore.
There are dozens of other temples and shrines of both Buddhist and Hindu faiths, scattered all around the districts in Kathmandu Valley for one to explore. For the adventurers at heart, there are short trails for Kathmandu Valley trekking to places like Nagarkot, Dhulikhel or Namo Buddha.
