Description

Kathmandu is the largest city and capital of Nepal and the namesake of the Kathmandu Valley. Once thought to be the fabled and inaccessible Shangri-La, Kathmandu is now a hub for independent travellers as well as a growing vacation spot catering to all budgets. As a result of considerable urban growth in recent decades, it is now part of one continuous urban area together with Patan to the south.

Kathmandu Travel Tips & Reviews

Kathmandu is the gateway to Nepal and where most trekkers pick up their permits and equipment. But there is so much more to this city, and simply rushing through would do it a disservice. The Kathmandu valley encompasses three Newari old towns full of palaces, temples and museums; several enormous Buddhist stupas; and the Hindu burning ghats. There is so much to see and do that Kathmandu is an amazing tourist destination in its own right!
