Kathmandu
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.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Fri): take in the spiritual surroundings of Swayambhunath Temple, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Shree Pashupatinath Temple, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Boudhanath Stupa, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Kopan Monastery. Keep things going the next day: take a stroll through Thamel, contemplate the long history of Kathmandu Durbar Square, get great views at Basantapur Tower, then admire the landmark architecture of Tridevi Mandir, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Garden of Dreams.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read Kathmandu itinerary planner.
