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.
You'll explore and learn at Patan Museum and Universal Art Gallery. Get a sense of the local culture at Swayambhunath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Thamel, get outside with Outdoor Activities, view the masterpieces at himalayan arts gallery p.ltd, and see the interesting displays at Narayanhiti Palace Museum.

To find photos, maps, and other tourist information, read our Kathmandu route maker site.

Doha, Qatar to Kathmandu is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2.8 hours traveling from Doha to Kathmandu. When traveling from Doha in August, plan for colder days and little chillier nights in Kathmandu: temperatures range from 34°C by day to 23°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) early enough to travel to Pokhara.
