Welcome to KATHMANDU, City of Temples:

Kathmandu, Nepal's capital, is set in a valley surrounded by the Himalayan mountains and is a melting pot of cultures and a rich mix of the east and west, the old and the new, where tradition jostles with modernity. Kathmandu is an incredibly diverse, historic city with amazing architecture, exquisite wood carvings, and metal crafts that showcase the skills of the Newar artisans of centuries ago.
Hinduism and Buddhism have co-existed in Kathmandu valley from time immemorial and the valley residents make a little distinction as they worship in both Hindu and Buddhist shrines.

The top attractions to visit in Kathmandu are:
Boudhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath Temple, Pashupatinath Temple, Chandragiri Hills, Kopan Monastery, Langtang National Park,  Hanuman dhoka,   Garden of Dreams,  Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Changunarayan Temple, and many more.
