Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, has always fascinated travellers from all around the world with its serene hills, ancient palaces, remote monasteries and spiritual festivals. Nestled in the Kathmandu Valley at an altitude of 1,400 metres, it's Nepal's gateway to the snow-capped Himalayas, including the famous Mount Everest.
As the capital and the largest city, Kathmandu is the epicentre of economic and cultural life in Nepal, which means there's plenty of things to see and do. From finding tranquillity at ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples, exploring museums and UNESCO World Heritage sites to feasting on exotic Nepalese food and shopping in colourful street markets, there's something for everyone.
While Kathmandu and Nepal are almost always associated with trekking, there's plenty of other outdoor activities waiting to be discovered. Thrill seekers can try whitewater rafting in the scenic Trishuli river, go hiking at Changu Naraya, experience a full day of mountain biking at the outskirts of Kathmandu and even try paragliding in Kathmandu Valley. For those looking for the extraordinary, there's an opportunity to book a 1-hour scenic flight above the iconic peaks of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest. An adventure you'll never forget.
For history buffs, being home to 7 Unesco World Heritage Sites, Kathmandu has no shortage of ancient landmarks to visit. From the Durbar Square, where kings were crowned in the ancient times, to Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest and most prominent Buddhist stupas in the world, to the beautifully restored Garden of Dreams, a green oasis perfect for relaxation, there's so much to explore.
For those who enjoy arts and culture, Kathmandu offers a staggering array of festivals. From the colourful Hindu festival of Holi, which welcomes the end of winter and the start of the warmer months, Nepali New Year, to Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival and Dashain when families reunite and exchange gifts and blessings, there are many events not to be missed.
Finally, Kathmandu has many options for food-minded visitors. Try a plate of mouth-watering chhwela, spiced grilled buffalo meat, a momo, a steamed bun served with spicy or savoury chutney, as well as different and flavourful lentil soups, rice pancakes, and crispy samosas. With influences from both India and Tibet, Kathmandu's cuisine is one of the city's main attractions.
All in all, with its stunning landscapes, rich history and delicious food, Kathmandu is a must-visit destination.
