Once synonymous with the mysterious and inaccessible Shangri-La, today Kathmandu draws an ever-increasing number of tourists, catering to independent travelers of various budgets.
Escape the urban bustle at Climbing Tours and Swiss Family Treks & Expedition. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Thamel and Swayambhunath Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kathmandu: Langtang National Park (Kyanjin Ri & Langtang Valley) and Bhaktapur (Changu Narayan, 55 Window Palace, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shree Pashupatinath Temple - Gwola Mahadyo, delve into the lush surroundings at Nagarjun Forest Reserve, take in nature's colorful creations at Garden of Dreams, and push the limits with an extreme tour.

To find maps, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Kathmandu journey planning tool.
