Kathmandu

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kathmandu: Bhaktapur (Bhaktapur Durbar Square - www.nepaltourpackage.com, 55 Window Palace, &more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Swayambhunath Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and wander the streets of Thamel.

Plan trip to Kathmandu with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
