In Kathmandu Day Tour, Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal which is located at the elevation of 1,350m from sea level. It is the largest city of Nepal which is divided into three cities including Bhaktapur and Patan. Most of the Durbar Squares, old temples, and monasteries are located in this valley and are known as the city of Temples. The city is mostly popular for temples including Swyambhunath, Bouddhanath, and Pashupatinath.

Swyambhunath and Bouddhanath are Buddhist temples where you can see the Buddhist religious activities along with Buddhist Monks. Likewise, Pashupatinath is the biggest Hindu temple which is located on the bank of the Bagmati River which is a holy river.

You can observe the ritual activities of Hindus every day in this temple and the strangest thing could be the crimination. Patan is popular for its wooden and metal crafts as well as fine arts and painting. It has its own Durbar square called Patan Durbar square.

You can see several Hindu and Buddhist monuments built during the Malla dynasty from the 15th to 18th century. Bhaktapur is the oldest city of Nepal and it is 15km far from Kathmandu. This city is famous for Bhaktapur Durbar Square, the typical Newari houses, the old Palace, temples, and Newari culture.

Himalayan Abode did so much to make our trip special. After using their services for the sunrise and day hike, we came back and asked for the city tour as well because we liked them so much. All the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. If you want to better understand Nepali history, people and culture, we highly recommend them!

Our full-day Kathmandu sightseeing was enjoyable. The owner, Prabin, ensured our trip to go as planned. He was responsive and very patient to our queries.
Also, the Narangkot-KTM pick-up service went as well as we expected.

I went into his office the night before I wanted to go on a full day hike around Kathmandu, he arranged a guide, transport, lunch, village visits, a beautiful sunrise spot, and a hike to a UNESCO heritage site for an amazing deal! We left the next morning at 4:30 and he was waiting for me already at 4:30. I highly highly recommend them. Had an awsome day! He also helped me buy bus tickets for 5 of my friends, he went to the bus station and picked them up for me all within an hour or so.

Ero con un gruppo misto di amici, siamo stati per 16 giorni con Sadhuram Ghorsaine, ci ha accompagnati nel trekking in annapurna ed è stato come un padre. Molto attento e gentile, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla. Ci serviva addirittura al tavolo e non c’è stato modo di farlo smettere. Gli abbiamo lasciato una meritata mancia in tutti quanti.

Esperienza, serietà e molta amicizia, sta facendo un corso di lingua italiana, fra poco sarà pronto anche per gli italiani piu radicali (no english 🙂 )
Ho conosciuto anche il suo boss, persona efficente e ottimo management, l’ultima sera ci ha anche offerto una squisita cena tradizionale nepalese.

Trasporti e spostamenti impeccabili, visitate poi Katmandu, Patan e Bjaktapur, per poi passare 3 giorni nel villaggio di Sudal. Esperienza imperdibile e piu bella di tutto il resto, dove si tocca realmente il Nepal, la vita in villaggio, si vive a contatto con loro e ci si immerge nella vita rurale, fabbriche di mattoni, coltivazioni, allevamenti. Alla sera splendida festa attorno a un grande fuoco tutti assieme. Esperienza fantastica, penso proprio che ci tornerò!

Struttura particolarmente indicata per chi fa un viaggio in Nepal per la prima volta.
Enjoy and share your trip with Sadu and the Abode Travels!

I would happily recommend Himalayan Abode Travel to all my friends and colleagues, the team is very professional, friendly and helpful. Their organisation skills are great and they provided a great holiday. I will definitely use them again. Thanks to Nabin and Prabin.

We arrived in Nepal with only two days to enjoy Kathmandu and Nabin guided us with the best experience visiting the most beautiful places in town. We enjoyed a lot! I highly recommend it.
