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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Changu Narayan and Nyatapola Temple. Your inner history buff will appreciate Thrangu Tashi Monastery and Swayambhunath Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Kathmandu side-trips: Bhaktapur (Dattatreya Temple & 55 Window Palace). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, get reinvigorated at Yoga & Pilates, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour.
