Kathmandu Vacations

If there's one word that Kathmandu conjures up, it's "powerful." An Asian crossroads for centuries, the culturally rich capital of Nepal is a major gateway to the Himalayas. As a pulsating trekker's paradise, Kathmandu offers intoxicating views of these legendary mountains in the distance and enchanting medieval temples in the foreground. With its never-ending stream of rickshaws weaving in and out of tiny backstreets, it's easy to casually brush up against buildings of tremendous historical importance.

Major Attractions

A vacation in Kathmandu promises more than landmarks and monuments; even the daily religious and cultural practices are an intriguing sight to see. Buddhist monasteries and Hindu temples are hidden among the maze of city streets, and these are some of the most captivating tourist attractions. Stroll the neighborhood of Thamel for the best shops and restaurants, and head to Durbar Square to encounter Kathmandu's unique architecture, including ancient temples and an old royal palace. Climb to the top of Bhimsen tower to get an unparalleled panoramic view of the city, and don't miss Swayambhunath, the Monkey Temple, where you can spot gilded treasures. Be sure to browse car rentals in Kathmandu —though rickshaws may be a novelty, you won't want to take them everywhere.

Recurring Events and Festivals

A Buddhist and Hindu stronghold, this diverse city is the backdrop for over a hundred festivals annually, so people on Kathmandu vacations are always likely to stumble upon something fun and enticing. Go in January to experience the Tibetan New Year and March for Holi, a breathtaking Hindu "Festival of Colors" that is blissfully interactive—you definitely won't want to wear nice new clothes unless you'd like them to become joyfully polychromatic. The biggest annual festival is the Durga Puja, an intriguing 15 days that ends on the full moon in September or October.
