Kathmandu is Nepal’s largest city and the country’s capital. Lying in the heart of Kathmandu Valley this Himalayan city was once thought to be the Shangri-La, an isolated mystical Himalayan Utopia. Now an important hub for travellers joining Himalayan expeditions, this city has its own unique sites that attract visitors to stay longer and see more of the city.

Getting around Kathmandu

You can explore Kathmandu by foot like what many tourists who are seasoned hikers usually do. You might also want to consider riding one of the rickshaws a truly Asian mode of transport in the tourist area, which can bring you around town. Taxis are also everywhere in the city.

Seeing the best of the city

At the city’s center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Durbar Square. Appearing magical in the very early morning and evening this ancient square which dates back to 1000 AD is crowded with ornate palaces and sacred temples which continually attract a stream of visitors. Another must see is the city’s Narayanhiti Palace Museum which was once a royal palace where you will be in for an unbelievable sight in the palace grounds at sunset as giant fruit bats hanging from tall trees fly en masse for their night journey.

Ornate Hindu temples with their elaborate structures and revered primary deities are also found in Kathmandu. Some temples though do not allow foreigners inside the temple. And if you want to take a break and rest after a long walk around the city, the walled Garden of Dreams is a perfect place to relax. Thamel Chowk is the place to go for the finest restaurants and shops. Your visit to Kathmandu can be a time to enroll in its internationally accredited massage schools that offer ancient massage, Thai massage and massage therapy training. Some courses run for 5 days, some for 10 days, and some for 1 month.
