Kathmandu

— 2 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.
Boudhanath Stupa and Shree Pashupatinath Temple - Gwola Mahadyo will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Til Mahadev Narayan Mandir and Jamchen Lhakhang Monastery. Change things up with a short trip to Siddhi Lakshmi Temple in Bhaktapur (about 38 minutes away). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Thamel, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, contemplate the long history of Taleju Bell, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Swayambhunath Temple.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Kathmandu day trip planning website.

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.
