Formerly believed to be the highly mystical Shangri-La, Kathmandu Nepal is now a growing hub for tourists, adventurers, and travelers the world over. As Nepal’s largest city, Kathmandu is home to about 2.5 million residents.
It is a place embraced by the mountains, and lovingly watched over by Buddha. This is why despite the tragic earthquake that shook the city in 2015, it continues to rise above its circumstances and shine brighter than ever.
Kathmandu will be your gateway as you explore the wonders of Nepal. At its center is Durbar Square, the most popular UNESCO World Heritage Site in the country. The word ‘durbar’ technically means ‘palace’ and this is where the city’s monarchs were crowned. Durbar Square surrounded by shops, palaces, temples, and plenty of foot traffic. Once you get a pass, you can climb up the temple steps to get a better view of the area.
The city of Kathmandu can be a chaotic place, so getting around might be tricky. Feel free to explore at your own time and pace on foot, or by hiring rickshaws or taxis, which are a safer bet. If you’re lucky, you may even get a chance to see a Kumari (a living host for the goddess Durga in Nepalese tradition)! Get ready to shop around for affordable and beautiful crafts found around the square.
Don’t forget to check out Freak Street, a hub for hippies around the ‘60s and ‘70s, that’s still a joy to visit today for their shops and restaurants. Kathmandu, Nepal is a great place to learn more about Buddhism and reflection. Make sure to carve out time to take a trip to Boudhanath Stupa, one of the most important and sacred sites in the country. It’s also the largest stupa in the world. The Swayambhu or Monkey Temple is another must-see for those who want to discover more about Nepal’s traditions.
