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.
Get some cultural insight at Thrangu Tashi Monastery and Nyatapola Temple. Discover out-of-the-way places like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Patan Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kathmandu: Bhaktapur (55 Window Palace, Dattatreya Temple, & more). There's much more to do: stop by S.K. Handicrafts Export, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Golden Temple (Hiranya Varna Mahavihar), and steep yourself in history at Krisnhna Mandir Temple (Chayasim Deval).
