Duration: 3 Days
If you have a few extra days in Kathmandu before or after your trek to Everest, Langtang or Annapurna region, why not spend a day or more exploring the historic sights of Kathmandu or pay a visit to the Unesco-Heritage Bhaktapur.
It was established in 1973 and granted the status of a World Heritage Site in 1984. It is a preserved area in the Terai Lowlands of south-central Nepal, known for its biodiversity. Its dense forests and grassy plains are home to rare mammals like one-horned rhinos and Bengal tigers. The park shelters numerous bird species, including the giant hornbill. Dugout canoes traverse the northern Rapti River, home to crocodiles. Inside the park is Balmiki Ashram, a Hindu pilgrimage site.
