Kathmandu

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.
Change things up with a short trip to Siddhi Lakshmi Temple in Bhaktapur (about 38 minutes away). There's much more to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, contemplate the long history of Kathmandu Durbar Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Shree Pashupatinath Temple - Gwola Mahadyo, and take in nature's colorful creations at Garden of Dreams.

Discover how to plan a Kathmandu trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
