Trip Overview

The valley of Kathmandu comprises three districts namely Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur. All of these districts of the valley today used to be separate kingdoms ruled by different Kings of different dynasties before it was unified by the King of Gorkha, Prithivi Narayan Shah under Nepal by 1769 A.D. Lalitpur known as Patan and Bhaktapur are known as Khwopa in the ancient days were both ruled by the Malla dynasty.
