According to the itinerary for the Glimpse of Nepal Tour, a city tour of the Kathmandu valley will take place in the afternoon.

The valley of Kathmandu, which is 1400 meters above sea level, contains extremely rich and cultivable soil. This valley, which people formerly thought to be a lake, underwent changes throughout history as various dynasties ruled it at various points.

The best examples of traditional workmanship may be seen at the three Durbar Squares: Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur.

The Glimpse of Nepal Tour will start with an afternoon tour of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. With stunning wood carvings on exhibit beside temples, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a unique historical site of Malla period buildings. Moreover, you will go to the Kumari Temple, which is home to the actual goddess Kumari. Due to the monkeys that gather around the perimeter, Swayambhunath Stupa, which is built on a tiny hill, is also known as Monkey Temple.

Useful Info

Glimpse of Nepal Tour Best Time, Season, and Months

The best time to go on a Glimpse of Nepal Tour is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons.

  • During spring, the weather is mild, and the flowers are in full bloom, making it a great time to explore the cultural attractions and natural beauty of Kathmandu and Nagarkot. The temperatures are also pleasant, making it ideal for outdoor activities like trekking and hiking.
  • In autumn, the weather is dry, and the skies are clear, providing excellent views of the Himalayan ranges and the surrounding landscapes. The temperatures are also moderate, making it a great time for trekking and other outdoor activities.
  • During the summer months (June to August), Nepal experiences a monsoon season, and the weather can be unpredictable, with heavy rainfall and the possibility of landslides. This may make it difficult to enjoy the outdoor activities and views that the Glimpse of Nepal Tour offers.
  • In the winter months (December to February), the temperatures can drop significantly, especially in the early morning and evening. However, this can also be a great time to enjoy the winter scenery, and there are fewer tourists, which means that the prices for accommodations and activities may be lower.

Overall, the best time to go on a Glimpse of Nepal Tour is during the spring and autumn seasons when the weather is mild and pleasant, and the natural and cultural attractions are at their best. However, if you don't mind colder temperatures or if you are looking for a budget-friendly option, winter can also be a great time to visit.
