I wished to explore Kathmandu city. I have heard and read a lot about it, therefore, wanting to see it for myself. During my trip to Nepal, I signed up for a day tour with Caravan Outdoors, and I mus say, they did provide a thorough tour of the city. I wish I had stayed more to see more of Kathmandu, but I had to leave early. A short but sweet tour. ~Vigo (Tel Aviv, Israel)
