This unique tour, brought to you by Himalayan Planet Adventures Day Tours, is designed to offer you an immersive experience of Bhaktapur's rich history and vibrant culture.
An Unforgettable Journey of Exploration and Discovery
Unlike your typical sightseeing trip, our 20 Ponds Walking Heritage Tour is an adventure that takes you off the beaten path. This 8-hour journey will lead you to the lesser-known corners of Bhaktapur, where you'll discover preserved structures and monumental edifices that have withstood the test of time. The tour begins at 8 in the morning and concludes after 8 hours, providing you with ample time to soak in the city's rich history and vibrant culture.
The Star Attractions: The Ancient Ponds of Bhaktapur
The star attractions of this tour are the 20 ponds scattered throughout Bhaktapur. These ponds, some of which have existed for centuries, are a testament to the city's ancient water management system. As you walk from one pond to another, you'll get a glimpse of the city's past and its intimate connection with water. Each pond has its own story to tell, and our knowledgeable guides will ensure you hear every tale.
The UNESCO Heritage Site: Bhaktapur Durbar Square
In addition to the ponds, the tour also includes a visit to Bhaktapur Durbar Square, a UNESCO Heritage Site. Built during and after the Malla regime, the square is a living museum showcasing the city's architectural grandeur and artistic excellence. From the 55 Window Palace to the Nyatapola Temple, the Durbar Square is home to some of the most impressive structures in Nepal. As you explore the square, you'll be transported back in time, experiencing the city as it was centuries ago.
