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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Patan Museum and Kathmandu Contemporary Arts Centre. Get some historical perspective at Swayambhunath Temple and Stone Vishnu Mandir Temple. Next up on the itinerary: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, wander the streets of Thamel, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shree Pashupatinath Temple - Gwola Mahadyo, and browse the exhibits of Nepal Art Council Gallery.

Pokhara

Pokhara, the second largest city in the country, attracts visitors with its superlative natural wonders and easygoing atmosphere.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Thu): explore the activities along Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake), fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and then look for gifts at House of Cashmere NTA. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of Gurkha Memorial Museum, see the interesting displays at Annapurna Butterfly Museum, then soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and finally see the interesting displays at International Mountain Museum.
