Kathmandu Valley Tour, Nepal is renowned for housing the much afamed Mount Everest and besides being one of the poorest countries on the globe, has a booming tourism industry. On a weeks visit to this multi-cultured and historical city, we were appalled at the many chronological monuments and sites throughout the vast capital of Kathmandu, which is roughly 1337m above sea level and heavily stacks locals, cross-breeds, immigrants, trekkers, tourists and globe-trotters in its embrace.

Kathmandu’s Durbar Square is one of three durbar (royal palace) squares in the Kathmandu Valley. It is the site of the Hanuman Dhoka Palace Complex, which was the royal Nepalese residence until the 19th century and where important ceremonies, such as the coronation of the Nepalese monarch, still take place today. The two-hectare (five-acre) palace complex is divided into two main chowks, or courtyards, and was initially constructed in the 16th century, although subsequent additions were made in the Shah (Gurkha) dynasty in the 18th century and by the Rana rulers in the 19th century.
