Kathmandu

4.2
Once synonymous with the mysterious and inaccessible Shangri-La, today Kathmandu draws an ever-increasing number of tourists, catering to independent travelers of various budgets. A trip to Kathmandu allows visitors to discover a series of World Heritage-listed monuments and soak up some of that distinct street atmosphere that makes this place so appealing to adventurers. Navigating the city's congested alleys provides eye-opening insight about how the locals live and struggle on a daily basis. You can get down to it by touring Kathmandu's various attractions in a rickshaw, probably the easiest and most authentic method of transport available here. Kathmandu is in Kathmandu Valley. Plan a trip to Nepal easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Where to stay in Kathmandu

Only a few establishments in Kathmandu suffered severe damage in the 2015 earthquake, which means that you can choose from a wide range of sleeping options. From luxurious hotels to inexpensive but cozy lodges, the city offers a suitable place for every type of budget. The neighborhood of Thamel contains most accommodations favored by foreign visitors, including basic guesthouses, budget hotels, and boutique establishments offering deluxe suites. For some of the least expensive options, look along Durbar Marg, a busy street just a few blocks from Thamel.
