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.
Step out of the city life by going to Parasailing & Paragliding and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Thermal Spas and Patan Durbar Square. Spend the 1st (Wed) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Degutalle Mandir Temple.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Kathmandu vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Montreal, Canada to Kathmandu is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or do a combination of flight, train, and car. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from Montreal to Kathmandu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Montreal in December, expect Kathmandu to be much hotter, temps between 22°C and 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) to allow time to travel to Chitwan National Park.
