Kathmandu, Nepal: 26 reviews and 22 photos
Favorite thing: <BR><font color=red><font size=+1>KATHMANDU</font></font><BR>
Famous for being a hippies centre in the 60s, Kathmandu is now a mix of <font color=red>backpackers, trekkers, old hippies...</font> and people from Nepal too!<BR> Kathmandu's core is <font color=red>Durbar Square</font>, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the Vishnumati River to the west and Ratna Park to the east (There is an entrance fee of Rs. 250 for foreign visitors. Your ticket to the Square entitles you to visit all the museums). The Bagmati River forms the southern boundary, while <font color=red>Thamel</font>, the budget travellers' hangout, sprawls to the north. This is the best place to do your shopping; and don't forget to bargain!!
