Tucked away in the Kathmandu Valley is Kathmandu, the colourful and historic capital city of Nepal. Located at the foot of the majestic Himalayan Mountains, this ancient city is located 4,600 feet above sea level and is a melting-pot of Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and other cultural influences.
Characterised by sprawling Buddhist and Hindu pagodas and temples, Kathmandu is a cultural mecca for travellers wishing to get in touch with their spiritual side. Food enthusiasts will love the variety of tastes and spices in local Kathmandu dishes. Travellers brave enough to attempt a trek up the Himalayas can arrange a hike with local tour guides, and, for hikers who may feel apprehensive about hiking the Himalayas, there are local treks in and around the city to nearby tea houses (popularly known as ‘teahouse trekking’).
