Day 02 : Kathmandu-Nagarkot
Begin morning with a Kathmandu city tour. Surrounded by high hills, this city is dotted with numerous temples. The Durbar Square is the oldest attraction of Kathmandu. Within this complex, there is a three tiered pagoda style temple built by King Mahendra Malla in 1549 A.D known as Hanuman Dhokha. Here, one can sense an epitome of spirituality with the presence of Taleju Bhawani, Kal Bhairav (God of Destruction) and the coronation platform, statue of King Pratap Malla.
Later visit Kumari Temple; the living Goddess is located in the vicinity of Humana Dhoka Palace. It has very attractive wooden carved windows and balconies, representing one of the beautiful architectures of the valley. Also visit Swayambhunath Stupa, a golden spire crowning a conical wooded hill. This is the most ancient and enigmatic of all the holy shrines in Kathmandu valley. Its lofty white dome and glittering golden spire are visible for many miles and from all sides of the valley.
In afternoon, visit Patan city, known for its remarkable pagoda styled temples. This is also the craft center of Kathmandu. Later drive 32 km to reach Nagarkot for overnight stay.
