Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal. A vibrant and historically rich city, Kathmandu boasts the most amounts of temples, palaces and historical relics in the country, therefore, every tourist visit the city during their trip to Nepal.

The legend has it, a famed meditation deity, Manjushree, brought the city to life by making it habitable by cutting down the gorge and letting the water flow out of the enclosed valley. Before he arrived, Kathmandu was supposedly under the water!

Testimonials

The Kathmandu in February can still be cold. I had to carry double layers of clothing. You helped me find a short trip to spend a quality time in Nepal. Few days on the road and a holy tour of Muktinath temple was gold! The entire trip from Kathmandu to Pokhara to Jomsom was amazing. Once you get off the plane you jump into a jeep and the whole bandwagon begins.
I found Muktinath to be tranquilizing. The old temple, countless stone taps, pilgrims bathing in the cold water was truly inspiring. I’d love to go on a longer trip with you guys the next time I visit Nepal. ~Sarah Thorpe (Brisbane, Australia)
