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 a sense of the local culture at Swayambhunath Temple and Kathmandu Durbar Square. Get some historical perspective at Boudhanath Stupa and Dattatreya Temple. Explore Kathmandu's surroundings by going to Bhaktapur (55 Window Palace, Bhaktapur Durbar Square - www.nepaltourpackage.com, &more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Shree Pashupatinath Temple - Gwola Mahadyo, shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, get outside with Outdoor Activities, and visit Thamel.
