MAJOR TOURIST ATTRACTION IN NEPAL:
The Kathmandu valley comprises the three royal cities of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur which share amongst themselves seven World Heritage Sites. The valley is like one vast open-air museum of Newar culture with its colossal ensemble of sculptures, temples, monuments and magnificent art.

KATHMANDU: The major places of interest in Kathmandu are the Durbar Square (a World Heritage Site), an assembly of palaces, courtyards and temples built between the 12th and 18th centuries by the Malla kings; Swayambhu Stupa (a World Heritage Site), one of the holiest Buddhist sites, that keeps watch over the valley from atop a hillock; Bouddhanath Stupa (a World Heritage Site), the largest stupa in the valley that rises 36 m; Pashupatinath Temple (a World Heritage Site), one of the holiest Hindu shrines in the world; and Changu Narayan Temple (a World Heritage Site), dedicated to Lord Vishnu and one of the finest and oldest specimens of pagoda architecture.

PATAN: Patan, the places to visit include the Durbar Square (a World Heritage Site) with its enchanting palace buildings, artistic courtyards and pagoda temples; Mahabouddha, a 14th-century Buddhist monument, which is a fine example of terra cotta artwork; Kwa Bahal, or the Golden Temple, a 12th-century Buddhist monastery exceptionally rich in fine wood-carvings and repousse work; and Kumbheswar, one of the only three temples in the valley with five roofs.

BHAKTAPUR: Bhaktapur’s attractions are just as spectacular. They are the Durbar Square (a World Heritage Site) with its 15th-century Palace of 55 Windows and entrance known as the Golden Gate – a masterpiece in repousse art; Taumadhi Square over which presides the towering five-roofed Nyatapol temple; Tachapal Square famed for its many ornate Hindu monasteries called maths; Potters’ Square (Bolachhen), where potters mold clay into earthenware; and Surya Binayak, a shrine dedicated to the Hindu god Ganesh.

POKHARA: The natural beauty of Pokhara in mid-western Nepal is simply bewitching. Forming the backdrop are the spectacular Annapurna mountains with the magnificent fish-tailed Machhapuchhre dominating the scene. Adding to Pokhara’s enchantment are the three serene lakes of Phewa, Rupa and Begnas. Other places of interest include the World Peace Stupa atop a hill that provides a stunning view of the surroundings; the deep Seti Gorge below which spreads the Green Canyon; and Devi’s Fall, an awe-inspiring waterfall that disappears into an underground passage. Annapurna, the most popular trekking route in Nepal, begins from Pokhara and leads you through rhododendron forests over the foothills of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. The Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest in the world, and Lake Tilicho, the highest lake at 4,919 m, are located here. The highest elevation reached on the trek is 5,416.

CHITWAN: Chitwan National Park, a World Heritage Site in south-central Nepal, is 932 sq km of subtropical lowlands of sal forests, tall grassland, ox-bow lakes and flood plains. The park is home to 50 species of mammals, 55 species of amphibians and reptiles and 525 species of birds.
