Info about Kathmandu

Overview

Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal. It is located faintly south-east of Nepal’s centre and covers an area of about 230 square kilometres.
The city has a population of about 700.000 inhabitants.
Kathmandu is really two cities: on one hand a legendary capital of friendly pilgrims and engraved rose – brick temples, on the other hand a quick -tempered sprawl suffocated in the pollution of diesel fumes, dirt, monkeys and beggars.

Overall Guide : Kathmandu is no doubt an amazing city to visit. In a certain sense, Kathmandu is a city of stark contrasts too - on one side you have the peace and serenity found in places like Boudha, Swoyambhu and Pashupati and... more on the other your senses are assaulted with the chaos in the streets. Two things are must in Kathmandu, 1) you have to visit the temples and 2)you HAVE to eat momos! But in this trip of mine to Kathmandu I came across this young company called Backstreet Academy and it was pretty amazing experience learning pottery from them. Apparently they have offices in several other cities across asia too! their concept is simple yet effective - why buy a souvenir when you can learn how to make them? So what these guys do is they'll connect with you with one of the several artisans/ craftsmen who offer classes in wood carving, dancing, kite-making, cooking and the like through their platform. If there was every an ideal way to get a pulse of the city, this would probably be it.
Not to be missed Swoyambhu , Bhaktapur , Backstreet Academy

Overall Guide : The best way to explore Kathmandu is to walk. By foot you can reach great part of the sights in the town. Most travellers head to the old city of Kathmandu. The sights are very collected in the... more old part of the city from Kantipath west towards the Vishumati River. Durbar Square is the centre of the old town and residence of the old Royal Palace. The new tourist centre called Thamel is situated about twenty minutes walk north from Durbar Square. In Kathmandu you can enjoy shopping in the main streets of the city, where you can buy jewellery, statues and other manufactured souvenirs of Nepal. Also nightlife in Kathmandu offers many kinds of entertainments for tourists and local people, there are theatrical shows, discos and casinos. The climate in the city is rather mild and characterized by the monsoon. The average temperatures in summer go from 19°C to 27°C and in winter from 2°C to 20°C.

Overall Guide : well kathmandu is a beautiful place having many religions like buddhist, hindus and christans. It has a long story. Kathmandu was a big lake many years ago the hindus says that krshna from dwaka came with his gopal to kill... more a demon named dana sur who submerged the valley and krishna cut down the demons head and chopped the southern hills and let the water drain but according to buddhist legend manjushree came from china with his displine to see the lake.and after that he saw a beautiful lotus floating on the water under the lotus he saw a huge stupa which is knows as swhyambu nath.he cut down the southeren side of the valley and drain the water and made dhramguru the king of the valley

Overall Guide : Kathmandu is really boring place. There nothing fun or exciteents in this city. I cant find what can i do here to make my holiday really enjoyable. The security is not gud and especially the transportation system. I could feel... more the racism in this city. People are not that hospitable to us. So i hope this might help is improving ur city more and also let tourist feel more comfortable in this kathmandu city.

Overall Guide : Kathmandu is a capital of Nepal which is very interesting city for dating and visiting. More international friends come to Kathmandu for enjoy cause there are more temples and more nice places. Kathmandu is also business area there are more... more peoples live for different kind of business.Actuality Kathmandu has more office for tourism cause our international friends come direct in Kathmandu cause we have only one international airport which lies in Kathmandu near Bhaktapur so there are more travel agency which agency's owner give service to our nice international guys. But in Kathmandu has more street boy&girls and they requested to our nice foreigner for money and others something but i think when our nice and kind foreigner give money to them then they go to buy the very bad things(alcohol, dent light ,drugs, cigarettes) so i want to advice to some one to buy something to them (foods, clothes, shoes, books).

Overall Guide : Kathmandu is a beatiful city with many palaces as well as temples. It is a natural beauty. It was once a huge lake filled with serpants. Kathmandu has lacustrine soil because it was a huge lake once. Bhuktaman was the... more first king of Kathmandu valley. There are many safari jungles. We can go sightseeing as well as mountain climbing. The highest mountain is in Nepal. There are many lakes and rivers etc.

Overall Guide : Kathmandu sees you as you see it but visiting the places like Patan, Kirtipur, bhaktapur ,etc can make you lost in the hearts of Nepal. If you think something is going wrong than believe that this happens in every country.... more You can visit in many places of interest and amazing excitement.Please visit Pokhara,lumbini,daman,and other many places for safari and trekking. Nepal is rich in all the diversities.

Overall Guide : Beautiful place on the lap of the great himalayas, unique in their culture, a great place to hang out with friends, family and loved ones... lack of good road transportation but flights to almost everywhere is available, since Nepal is... more a developing country road accidents are frequent and filghts also do crash killing many people. Nepal is also really cheap for foreigners...
Not to be missed namche bazar , Annapurna Base Camp Trek , daman/nagarkot/dhulikhel
