Tour description provided by Viator

Walk the historic town of Kirtipur and absorb the local culture and temples. Just 5km southwest of Kathmandu, the sleepy town of Kirtipur has a wonderful sense of faded grandeur thanks to the impressive medieval temples dotted around its backstreets. When Prithvi Narayan Shah stormed into the valley in 1768, he made a priority of capturing Kirtipur to provide a base for his crushing attacks on the Malla kingdoms. Hike to the placid lake where migratory birds from Siberia come to enjoy. Here we end with lunch. The tour can also be done in reverse.
Kirtipur has a wonderful location situated on a hill in the southern side of Kathmandu. We transfer you to Kirtipur by a private vehicle and start the walk here in this historic town and then walk to Taudaha Lake through paddy fields,  where migratory birds come from Siberia during their yearly migrations. During the walk, you will see farm houses and animal sanctuary.  Here we end with lunch in The Bottle House. The lunch includes dal-bhat with organic vegetables grown locally. After lunch you will be transferred to hotel by a private car. The tour can also be done in reverse too.
