It is supposed that the name Kathmandu comes from the ancient pagoda Kasthamandap made by a single tree, which is in Kathmandu Durbar Square of Kathmandu Valley. Ancient Kathmandu has its own interesting history. It is said that Kathmandu Valley was once a lake. It only became safe to live people when Manjushri caught the Chovar Hill and flowed its water out of the lake. Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing Tour combines sightseeing tour of 4 UNESCO Heritage sites of Nepal Pashupatinath, Boudhnath Stupa, Swayambhunath Temple and Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Sightseeing tour will provide them ample opportunities to observe and learn culture, history, heritage, life style of people, their religious, social and behavioral practices and most of all it makes them connected to the ideas and thoughts of people of Nepal in real setting. While on city tour they do not only visit the heritages but can have interaction with the locals and experience the delicacy of nature in urban areas which certainly differs from being in contact with nature in high Himalayas.
