Kathmandu

— 4 nights
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.
Explore Kathmandu's surroundings by going to Bhaktapur (Siddhi Lakshmi Temple & Til Mahadev Narayan Mandir). On the 25th (Mon), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. There's still lots to do: see the world from above with a helicopter tour, take in the exciting artwork at Ritual Thanka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Swayambhunath Temple, and take a stroll through Thamel.

To find maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Kathmandu itinerary planning site.

With everything from snowcapped mountains and vast grasslands to dense tropical forests, Nepal represents one of the world's most ecologically diverse destinations. A trip to Nepal takes visitors to an ancient land situated between India and China, both of which influence the region's culture, cuisine, and religious traditions. Despite the country's natural appeal, commercial tourism in Nepal remains a relatively new industry and most of the area lies unspoiled and undiscovered by foreigners. Ideal for travelers interested in pushing their physical abilities to the limit, Nepal contains most of the world's tallest peaks, including the legendary Mount Everest.
