Kathmandu Tour

Before flying to my home country, I had two extra days and I choose to explore Kathmandu on my own. But I realized it would waste my time, so I hired a tour guide from TRA who helped me explored major places like Swayambnhunath stupa, Ason, and Kathamndu Durbar Square. I have some best shots from this tour. The guide was friendly and with extra knowledge for the tour.,
