Retaining its ancient traditions, Kathmandu is blessed by a Living Goddess and is enriched by endless ceremonial processions and events that take to the streets every now and then with throngs of devotees seeking blessings. The valley offers you a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence. The religious festivals observed are steeped in legend and are quite a spectacle with chariot processions and masked dancers often possessed by the spirits of deities. Nature & Historical Tour takes you to explore this traditional part of the valley. The tour covers seven UNESCO world heritage sites and beautiful hill station Nagarkot - from where one can enjoy the view of the highest point of the world - Mount Everest (8,848m).
