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 hidden gems such as Safaris and Jaganath (Krishna) Temple. Nyatapola Temple and Kala Bairav are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Kathmandu to go to Bhaktapur and see Changu Narayan, which is approximately 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, view the masterpieces at Boudha Stupa Thanka Center, don't miss a visit to Taleju Bell, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kopan Monastery.

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.
