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.
Step out of the city life by going to Himalayan Leaders and Safaris. Head to Thamel and Spasfor some retail therapy. Change things up with a short trip to Kathmandu Fun Valley in Bhaktapur (about 56 minutes away). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Asan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Bhadrakali Temple, pause for some photo ops at Kala Bairav, and get some fabulous bargains at The Cashmere Outlet.

For traveler tips, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Kathmandu trip itinerary maker website .

Kathmandu is very close to Pokhara. Traveling from Pokhara in June, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be a bit cooler in Kathmandu, with lows of 22°C. On the 13th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
