As you can see, there's never been a guide book about Heritage walks in the Kathmandu Valley like this before. I've been writing about Nepal for over a decade and heritage is my passion. While my Nepal Guidebook contains heritage walks I wanted to expand them into something greater and purposefully for people who enjoy heritage too..

This paperback edition was created for heritage enthusiasts & for those who want to discover more!

With the success of my other guidebooks to Nepal it's been a long-term project of mine to create a book of this magnitude. While the digital version of this book has it's own great merits many people have requested a paperback edition.

Taking this into account I worked hard with the publisher Himalayan Travel Guides to create the best print edition possible. Using 100% recycled high tensile paper the books 374 pages are lightweight and strong enough to stand the test of travel.

As such, the book was designed specifically for travelers in Nepal:

  • This book is the only heritage book to Nepal printed on recycled paper
  • This is the only guidebook in the world with duel maps. We have my gps-located maps throughout plus we've included Himalayan Map House's award winning city and regional maps!
  • Traditional note taking section at the rear of the book
  • 100% printed and published in Nepal by Nepali people
  • Free shipping worldwide

This book has taken several years to write due to the incredibly amount of detail in it. I personally researched, created, mapped & wrote this book to both document the living heritage of the Kathmandu Valley as it stands and to bring you the best guidebook for heritage walks in the Kathmandu Valley. Quite honestly there is no other book like this anywhere.

Throughout the walks every temple, monastery & shrine is detailed with photographs & descriptions of the walking route. Original maps & diagrams - clearly show you the routes & location of every building on the walk.

If you only have a mild interest in heritage then rest assured there's quick walks that will show you how to explore, see and discover heritage in Kathmandu better than any other book as you make your way around.
