While on Nepal tours, you will most likely visit Kathmandu, the largest city and capital of Nepal. Situated at an elevation of approximately 1,400 metres (4,600 ft) in central Nepal, Kathmandu is the urban core of Kathmandu Valley, located in the Himalayas.

Kathmandu features two sister cities, Lalitpur to its south, and Bhaktapur to its east, comprising the acronym ‘KTM’ and the name ‘tri-city’. Recognized for its cultural heritage and monuments in its three districts (Kathmandu District, Lalitpur District, and Bhaktapur District), Kathmandu Valley is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Located in the northwest region of Kathmandu Valley, Kathmandu features eight rivers flowing through and is surrounded by four major hills, Shivapuri, Phulchoki, Nagarjun and Chandragiri.

Kathmandu has been undergoing rapid growth, as homes, shops, and businesses are being developed, making it one of the most desired but expensive places in Southeast Asia to buy real estate.

Amidst its modern development, Kathmandu’s Durbar Square is crowded with temples and palaces. This ancient square has been around since 1000 A.D. and also features Durbar Square Museum. As well, Durbar Square plays host to various Nepal festivals.
Kathmandu is the starting point for many adventures on Nepal vacations including Mount Everest area tours, a trek through Bandipur, a boat ride in Pokhara, and rafting in Chitwan National Park along with jungle adventures.

With its culturally-rich heritage, shops, and meditation retreats, this fascinating city has something special for everyone. Book one of our Kathmandu tours today!
