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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Swayambhunath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa. Your inner history buff will appreciate Shree Pashupatinath Temple - Gwola Mahadyo and Dattatreya Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Bhaktapur (55 Window Palace, Bhaktapur Durbar Square - www.nepaltourpackage.com, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Kathmandu Durbar Square, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
