What We Love About Kathmandu

Being the largest city and capital of Nepal, Kathmandu is a historic city filled with religious sites and intricate Newari architecture. Explore Kathmandu's ancient sites like Durbar Square, the old kingdom of Kathmandu's past rulers, the Swayambhunath Stupa––also known as the Monkey Temple––and Boudhanath, the largest stupa in Nepal. Take a trip out to Nagarkot and witness a spectacular sunrise from the hilltop. If you're up for a challenge, brave the legendary Everest Base Camp trek with a 12-day climb to the foot of the tallest mountain in the world!
