Our family had a blast exploring Kathmandu Valley. The temples had cool things from both Hindu and Buddhist beliefs, which the kids found interesting. Swayambhunath had a beautiful view, and our guide, Ram was really Kathmandu Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square. It was a cool family trip with lots of fun and learning.

My recent trip to Kathmandu Valley was awesome! I loved seeing temples where both Hindus and Buddhists pray together. Swayambhunath, on a hill, had the best view ever. Our guide pasang, told us cool stories about the old places like Kathmandu Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square. It was a magical journey, and I felt really happy.

I really enjoyed the sightseeing. I did it on October 15 and had a great time exploring the Kathmandu Valley. For the first time, I got to see two different religions mixed in one temple. I saw many Buddha statues in temples and many Hindu god statues in Buddhist monasteries. I had an incredible time watching the Kathmandu Valley from Swayambhunath. And guide Ram was incredible; he was really informative and helpful. I got to know a lot about the history of Nepal when I visited Kathmandu Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square. Thanks to him!
