Today, you’ll explore Kathmandu with a local guide. Durbar Square is the ideal starting point, scattered with beautiful medieval temples. Take a seat on the steps, watch the world go by and soak up the spiritual atmosphere. You’ll also visit Swayambunath, the oldest temple in the valley, now overrun with scampering monkeys. Next, you’ll head for sacred Pashupatinath, where open-air cremations take place and Bouddhanath, a Buddhist monument in the heart of ‘Little Tibet’. Each temple is adorned with colourful prayer flags fluttering in the wind, set against snowy peaks and bright blue skies.
