UNESCO has recognized four natural and cultural World Heritage Sites (WHS) in Nepal. We organize intimate short tours to all the heritage sites in Nepal any time of the year. This is an opportunity to see the excellence and charming beauty of Nepal’s art and architecture and the unique wildlife and biodiversity in the heart of the Himalayas.
The four world heritage sites are, namely Kathmandu Valley which consists of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan Durbar squares, Lumbini (the birthplace of Buddha), Everest National Park and Chitwan National Park.
The medieval cities of Bhaktapur, Patan and Kathmandu, Changu Narayan Temple, Pasupatinath Temple, Swoyambhunath and Boudhanath within Kathmandu Valley have been inducted into World Heritage Site list. These cities and shrines display some of the world’s distinctive masterpieces of art and architecture, clearly visible in temples and chortens, courtyards, palaces, life-size sculptures and museums.
Swoyambhunath and Boudhanath are world’s largest Buddhist stupas that stand tall as a testimony to the significance of Tibetan Buddhism. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Pashupatinath Temple is the most sacred temple among all Hindu devotees.
Lumbini is the birthplace of Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism and apostle of peace. Located in southwestern region of Nepal in the Terai plains, Lumbini is a world heritage site and one of the world’s greatest pilgrimage centers. Hundreds of thousands tourists and pilgrims visit to this sacred site every year to pay their respects to Lord Buddha.
