Tour Introduction :

We take photos as a return ticket of a moment otherwise gone. It reminds little things, long after you have forgotten everything. It is the most pursued hobby. And it brings one closer to nature, art, culture, and entire human civilizations.

Nepal is a country with a distinct identity in the world. She has unique natural, geographical, and socio-economical features. Nepal is simultaneously known as a country with unity in diversities. There is a great variation in ethnicity, culture, religion, language, geography, etc.

This small mountainous country is unique in all ways. It holds more than 1300 peaks including all the major mountains of Nepal. She has also more than 6000 rivers and rivulets along with lakes, natural fountains, Valleys, Basins, canyons, gorges, and pastures. In addition to that, she has ancient temples, palaces, forts, shrines, etc. All of them are so valuable and present excellent examples of wood and stone carving from Medieval Nepal.

This is a matter of pride for us ten of our national heritages (8 cultural heritages and 2 natural heritage) are listed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO. Kathmandu Valley alone has 7 of those heritages and thousands of temples and shrines. Therefore, Kathmandu is also known as the city of temples.

World Heritage Photography Tour in Nepal is all about taking excellent photographs of those heritages where taking photographs is not forbidden. This tour provides an excellent opportunity to frame the unbelievable craftsmanship of the ancient Nepali people. All those architectural and sculptural assets also draw you back to the ancient Nepali Societies and their socio-economic condition.
