Nepal - Kathmandu (Chapter)
This is the Kathmandu chapter from Lonely Planet’s Nepal guidebook.
A riot of sights, sounds and smells - stroll through the backstreets and Kathmandu’s timeless cultural and artistic heritage will reveal itself in hidden temples overflowing with marigolds, court-yards full of drying chillies and rice, and tiny hobbit-sized workshops.
- chill out in one of the rooftop garden restaurants in Thamel with a good book, a pot of ma-sala tea and a slice of chocolate cake
- soak up the amazing architectural monuments of Old Kathmandu, an artistic and architec-tural tradition that rivals the great cities of Europe
- dine on momos (dumplings) and wild boar to the beat of madal (drums) and bansari (flutes) at one of the city’s superb Newari restaurants
- restaurants & accommodation
