Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and offers a lot of sights that you should not miss on your trip through Nepal. As soon as you get used to the hustle and bustle in the streets, it’s time to explore Kathmandu extensively. And even though the earthquake in April 2019 destroyed some of the most important monuments and sites, many of these buildings have been extensively rebuilt or restored since then.
Which country is Kathmandu located in?
Namaste! Are you interested in Kathmandu and Nepal? Are you already planning a trip to the South Asian country and its unique capital? I have been living in Kathmandu since 2019 and can provide you with helpful tips for your travel planning.
The Nepalese capital Kathmandu looks like a place in another world or a bygone time to the visitor. The vibrant and bustling hustle and bustle of the modern world is just a few minutes’ walk from the narrow and winding streets of the Old Town with its centuries-old buildings.
Particularly impressive are the magnificent Hindu temples, which throughout Kathmandu testify to the former importance of the religious life of the Newar – Nepal’s indigenous people. The inhabitants could afford to turn to religion thanks to the remote location of Kathmandu: the city with almost one million inhabitants is located at an altitude of 1,355 meters, surrounded by the peaks of the Himalayan Massif at the entrance to the climatically favored Kathmandu Valley.
