The Seven World Heritage Day Tour of Kathmandu Valley is a well-planned day excursion that will allow you to see all the world heritage sites inside Kathmandu Valley in one day. Many tourists visit Kathmandu in large numbers, but only a few get a chance to visit all 7 UNESCO sites in a single day. The itinerary is meticulously designed to include all the visits to the capital city's 7 UNESCO-famous sites within one day. Join a small group and tour Kathmandu on a private jeep with a hilarious and qualified instructor who provides you with information and background about the sites.

Nepal is blessed with great cultural diversity, multi-religious glorification, and one of the most beautiful architectural inventions of ancient times. It is where the world's highest range of mountains, the Himalayas, stands, along with the numerous groups of ethnic residents living in the area. The influence of Buddhism and Hinduism made way for other faiths, eventually leading to the formation of Nepal as it is today. Therefore, the religious, artistic, and ethnic aspects of those religions are impressive among the Nepalese people and the structures in that country.

While on Nepal's UNESCO World Heritage Tour, you will visit seven of the country's ten UNESCO heritage sites. These are the old historic area of the Royal Palace, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, and Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Temples like Pashupatinath and Changunarayan, and Stupas like Swayambhunath and Boudhanath.

The Kathmandu Valley is a heritage paradise, with seven breathtaking UNESCO sites and a history of over 2000 years. Considered architectural marvels and of religious significance, these are among the most renowned attractions of Nepal for travellers from all over the world. Nevertheless, we realize visiting all the sites in just one day can also be a challenge for tourists, considering they are in a foreign land. Hence, we have pioneered a single-day tour at Mountain Rock Treks that visits the seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The tour is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the participants are provided with private cars to quickly and conveniently change between the sites. It is a trip not only to the monuments in and around Kathmandu but also includes a visit to the famed cities of Bhaktapur and Patan, where we see the widely famous Changu Narayan.

Our One-Day Tour of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu, which you can book, unveils the historical and cultural places of high importance in Nepal. Seven UNESCO World Heritage tours are the best package for the exploration of the Kathmandu cultural and historical treasures. You shall view magnificent historic sites such as Kathmandu Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, and Swayambhunath Stupa, as well as several other Hindu and Buddhist temples/monasteries on a day tour of Kathmandu Valley. 

A 7 UNESCO World Heritage Tour in Kathmandu Valley, which showcases UNESCO world heritage sites of Kathmandu Valley, is a life-changing trip for travelers. This one-day Itinerary is suitable to combine with treks and tours like 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek 15 days, Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour, etc. We aim to organize the Kathmandu ancient temples tour, during which Nepal's culture, history, and spirituality will be unveiled. With the help of professional English-speaking guides, transport comfort, and full tour planning, we are the right tour to explore Nepal's soul. For those who prefer a shorter tour, we offer a 3-hour trip to Kathmandu Valley and a 6-hour trip to Kathmandu City.

This temple was built in the golden year 1702 during the reign of King Bhupatindra Malla. One reaches the temple via a stone stairway with guardian figures on both sides.

King Jitamitra Malla constructed the palace with fifty-five windows for his 55 wives, each window for a wife. The building of the 55 Windows Palace was constructed in around the 18th Century.

The pond lies next to the buildings; however, you can also see the snowy mountain peaks on a sunny, clear day.

  • Indeed, some heritage sites might have dress codes or certain cultural norms. It would be good to dress modestly by covering your shoulders and knees, especially when standing at religious sights. It is vital to comply with cultural norms by removing shoes at appropriate points and avoiding discourteous behaviour.

  • The guides are fluent in the English language. Please let us know if you prefer your tour to be delivered in a specific language while making a reservation with us.

  • The UNESCO Seven World Heritage Tour can be a valuable educational experience for children. However, parents should consider the length of the tour and the children's interest in cultural and historical sites when deciding to include them.

  • The tour can be customised to accommodate specific preferences or additional destinations within the Kathmandu Valley. Customization options can be discussed and arranged during the booking process.

  • Kathmandu's UNESCO Sites

    This one-day UNESCO World Heritage Tour by Mountain Rock Treks was an ideal way to see Kathmandu's ancient cultural beauty. Indeed, our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the sites we visited. He told us many interesting facts about the past and also provided information about the religious beliefs behind the important heritage places. The private car offered comfortable transportation.

  • One Day, Seven Wonders

    The UNESCO World Heritage Tour through Mountain Rock Treks was the best way for me to discover the diversity of the culture of the Kathmandu Valley. The guide was passionately knowledgeable about history and culture. He also shared historical facts and the importance of every heritage site, which was interesting to listen to. I was also greatly inspired by the stories and culture I encountered while in the community. Transportation via private car was a very convenient travel alternative. Our guides recommended the best restaurants and cafes to try local foods at each location. I highly recommend this tour with Mountain Rock Treks to travellers who want a hassle-free Kathmandu tour experience in just one day.
