Your 7-day Kathmandu Valley and Chitwan tour begins in the valley where you visit a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites scattered in Kathmandu, Lalitpur (Patan) and Bhaktapur, which are all cities within the Kathmandu Valley. These sites showcase Kathmandu’s rich cultural heritage such as its architectural marvels and the ancient Hindu and Buddhist relics.
