Rising to a height of 1300 metres, Kathmandu Valley lies at the foot of the Himalayas in the centre of the kingdom of Nepal, a city of temples and gods that was founded in the 10th century by King Gunakamadeva.

For those of the Hindu faith, the temple area of Pashupatinath is the most holy place in Nepal and is an ancient place of worship for the god, Shiva.

Established in the 12th century, Bhaktapur, the 'The Town of Devotees', was until the end of the 15th century, the capital of Kathmandu Valley.

Located on a hill 3 kilometres to the west of Kathmandu is the valley’s main landmark, the Holy Stupa of Swayambhunath. This large temple complex, with its famous eyes, serves as a reminder that due to the fact that Buddha was born in this country 2500 years ago, Nepal is the true centre of Buddhism.

Changu Narayan is the oldest sanctuary in Kathmandu Valley and is dedicated to the god Vishnu. It has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The location of this holy sanctuary is ideal, as its temple area is situated on the summit of a mountain ridge that provides an excellent view of the entire valley.

Kathmandu Valley is Nepal’s treasure house, along with all of its wonderful medieval Himalayan art and culture.
