Begin the day with a filling breakfast. Later, go sightseeing in Kathmandu. Begin your sightseeing excursion at UNESCO World Heritage Site Hanuman Dhoka (Durbar Square). Built between the 12th and 18th centuries as the former residence of Kathmandu's ancient Malla monarchs, it is a complex of palaces, courtyards, and temples that exemplifies religious and cultural variety.
