Interested in architecture, religion, culture, or history. This tour is one for you. You can absorb the atmosphere of a traditional walled town and its ancient architecture and observe Newari culture as we explore Kirtipur, 8 km from the center of old Kathmandu. Kirtipur is one of Nepal’s oldest town settlements, but be warned, these days it is hard to tell where old towns ended and the next one began. During this tour, you will gain insights into Buddhism and Hinduism and see how royalty once lived.

Our explorations begin after breakfast when we leave Kathmandu after breakfast for the 30-minute drive to Kirtipur where you will also learn about the bravery of the town’s residents battling against conquest in the 18th century and the remarkable woman the town was named after. With religious faith at the heart of life for many Nepalese people, we visit several Buddhist and Hindu temples and a Thai stupa, take in the last of the four entrance gates to the walled town, and an unusual cremation site.

This one is noted for the few sticks of wood Kirtipur people use at the cremation, in contrast to other areas where great piles of wood are used in the fire. As we go we point out other historical, cultural, and archeological places of interest like typical houses, great wood and stone carvings, and aspects of typical Newari culture.
