Temples, palaces and golden sculptures: immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Patan, the third largest city in Nepal, on this private tour from Kathmandu with your own exclusive English speaking guide.
Patan Guided Tour
After picking you up from your hotel in Kathmandu at the selected time, we'll leave the Nepalese capital behind, setting off on our short 30 minute drive to Patan.
Arriving in our destination, still known to many as Lalitpur, or "City of Beauty", we'll embark on our guided walking tour of its historic centre. One of the oldest Buddhist cities in the world awaits us, ready to reveal its charms, secrets and legends.
We'll spend two and a half hours exploring Patan and admiring its most emblematic monuments, including the famous Durbar, or Royal Palace Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site home to around twenty different historic buildings used by the Malla kings when Patan was an independent city-state.
Buddhist and Hindu temples; water conduits, spouts and tanks; intricately carved gates and sculptures... the beauty of Patan is sure to enchant you. We'll make a stop in front of the eye-catching Golden Gate, the entrance to the Royal Palace, as well as visiting the sculpture of Yogendra Malla. Why does it have a cobra and a bird? Our guide will reveal all!
The excursion will come to an end with drop off at your hotel back in Kathmandu after three and a half hours discovering the rich culture of Patan.
