Nepal is a country you will never forget. This small nation encompasses 147,181 square kilometres, a land full of rising mountains, so high that it is hard to imagine people living there. Nepal is situated between Tibet and India.
The capital city, Kathmandu is brim full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, golden pagodas and many fascinating villages. At the same time, hotels, bars and restaurants catering to all budgets abound. The shops offer tourists souvenirs, handicrafts, carpets, and beautifully crafted Nepali paper prints.
Durbar Square is filled with locals, animals, monuments and temples. A short trek to the Monkey Temple gives one a glimpse of the valley’s oldest and most venerated shrine. The bustling Thamel district is the centre of tourist activity in Kathmandu. It is known for its noisy lanes, busy bazaars, and popular eateries. Thamel is the best place for tourists to buy their souvenirs, and sip tea or coffee while they enjoy authentic Nepalese ambience.
